Closing down a farm - how to do that, and help to get the most out of it

Hi Forum
I am about to completely close down a farm that I have run second for a couple of years now, but no longer have the energy to continue. The gold, villagedollars and green dollars can be donated directly to the coop,    Buildings, ships and everything else can be tared down bit by bit, BUT The farm also have a whole lot of seeweed, seeds, fertilizer, and so on. I want to get every single dollar out of it, in order to donate the dollars to the coop. Does anyone know a good way to do this, maybe a little trick or path to the easy way out :))

Edit: And finally, when all this is done, HOW DO YOU CLOSE THE ACCOUNT ?

    Well, one thing is that demolishing all of the buildings means you basically can't do much if you ever choose to come back. But if you don't want to come back, then try to get a field booster from a speed task in a weekly event and then use seaweed humus and sunflower seeds. Try to use seaweed fertiliser to complete apple contracts in the organic market and use seaweed feed in a copious/capacious/colossal cowshed and try to use the milk in organic market contracts.

    And if you would like to help others collect farm dollars, use your karma to buy fishing rods and gift the boats of cooperative members.

    You can't get your account deleted unless you have not bought gold and don't log into it for six months.

    @mutterkjær (SKN1) Why close it down? I suggest you rather offer your farm to someone in your coop. Change the email and password and let them farm your ex-farm on behalf of the coop. In the long run they will gain more from an established farm than a few dollars and gold.

    I have tried to offer the farm to coop-members, but no one wants it . Everyone in my coop thinks they have more than enough to do with their own farms.

    @mutterkjær (SKN1)  I've heard that if you've bought gold in the past and want to have your farm deleted, you can e-mail Support and request your account be deleted from the server.  You may be asked a few questions to determine that it is in fact your account.  :)    Link to Support for Big Farm --> https://support.goodgamestudios.com/?g=15&lang=en&platformId=0
                                                 
  • @Fallen (INT1)what you suggest is against the game rules and players taking up that farm could be banned.

    @Byron Longford (AU1) Thank you, I was really not aware of that. Would love to know the reasons as to why as many players have 2nd farms on BFG.

    I don't really know why they have that rule but they don't really enforce it because it is not that uncommon for players to transfer their farms to others when they leave and there is rarely any action taken about it.

    So when are GGS going to enforce this rule ?

    Thanks´wabbit. This is very clear, but there is a saying among players, that you can have all the accounts you want using different e-mail accounts. This is NOT true then !!!

    They don't have the staff any more to baby sit the game by watching the IP addresses of players & noting the ones that have more than 1 account on them.
     There is a family account option through support which allows more than 1 account per server per IP address. To help parents & their kids be able to play together at home.
     There has been some recent changes to the way they handle accounts of player's that leave the game. From my understanding if a player has bought gold through their game account then GGS will not delete the account period. Even if a player has not bought gold the account could remain for up to a year before it might be removed from the game. No guarantee though.
     Best bet is to demolish everything you can on all the area's in the game. Find a co op that could use an extra bonus of cash & gold & donate it. As for other supplies, like sea weed items. Take @ninjahuman (AU1) suggestion find an event that a co op could use help with ;)

    Tell me please,  how many farms in your cooperative have been given to other players and are freely passed from one player to the other ?  You do know this is against the rules don't you ?

    How about GGS to do something about this ?  There are coops in our server that keep dozens of illegal accounts  and add them to the coop when convenient, remove them when no longer needed.   It's an absolute disgrace showing luck of respect for all other players, GGS the guiltiest of all in any case

    And for the record, none.

    I can also see that it's a problem finding multiple farms when the player's username is Player04390770, or such.  ;)

    no names should be a problem to find multiple farms.  GGS isn't looking for multifarmers, now that is the real problem.

    @mutterkjær (SKN1)  No need to apologize for anything, mutterkjaer.  :) That is what the forum is for, to allow players to express their opinions, either positive or negative.  B)
