Question-whiteClean up the FV snag options!

Please_share
by Sue Brantley - May 26, 2013 Star_s3,690 views

How do we get GU to clean up the snagging options on the FV list? Some of those things, like "Big Picnic" are almost 2 years old! GU keeps adding new ones but doesn't delete the old useless ones. There is alot of unnecessary crap to wade through on the list and I, for one, would love to have it tidied up so I can get down to the things I really need NOW.

Does anyone else agree?

Lately, I find myself always having to re-enter all my snag bar preferences every time I log on. Somehow they're not saved like before.

TY to all at GU. I couldn't keep up without the work you do. I wouldn't even try because it would suck all of the enjoyment out of playing the game.
That said I agree that sifting through all of that is a pain and uncontrollable but I also see that it would be difficult for GU to keep up with FV with all the new stuff they keep adding(that doesn't work right). To play or not to play, that is the question.

Thank you for helping us get the millions of thing FV is now asking us to get. It is impossible to manage playing and living life with so many farms all at one time each one with too many things to do. You are appreciated very much. Sorry to hear about your mother. I hope she is getting better and home soon. I for one will be thankful for whatever you manage to add to the list. Family comes first.. FIRST... no matter what. Keep up the great work.

To add on to this I am wondering why absolutely none of the quests on my GU snag list has been updated since May. Whats up with that?

My bar hasn't worked for two months

Thank you Cathy! I appreciate the nice words!

Special thanks to GU admins and moderators for making it so much easier for me to play Farmville. You guys do a lot of work for us!

Rae, I hope your mom is doing well, and you as well. Hang in there! Big HUGS!

I agree there are a lot of old stuff on there that shouldn't be (at least for me) but my thinking is they leave it there because new players might still need them. I am not sure if the staggered release of things by Zynga or the new players get a chance to play older quests that we have completed or whatnot, but if it true, then these old items are helpful to others, even if not us. However, things that are truly obsolete and no longer useful to anyone, yeah they should certainly be removed. The list is so long that every time I try to narrow my choices, I give up. I have recently been using the search to find the things I get in my box that I don't need and uncheck them, but still a big hassle.

I've been reporting as snaggable & they are being added usually the next day or so maybe more peeps need to report these items as & when they appear on feed.

Yes I am sorry. Real life is kicking my butt lately. My mom messed up her knee and ended up in the hospital and after they let her "slip" (thats what they called it-I call it letting her fall) I had to put her in a nursing home to get some rehab. Its been a crazy 4 months. I am adding things to the snag bar.

 

Helen- these things have to be reported as snaggable. So please do that. Thanks for your patience.

Some of the items that should have a heart do not as well. Also Wish is only on as a quest help ( from unicorn cloud thing) but it has two options.. there is the giving one ( get a wish ) and asking for one ( give and get) that has not been fixed up either. I realize that this game has a LOT of stuff in it but they seem to teak the unnecessary and ignore the useful?

Picture?type=square

Yes, they are being added. It, unfortunately, does seem to be just a couple of people who have the task of adding everything. GU does all of Zynga's games and Farmville, alone, adds so much to the game every week, that it must be a monumental task for that game alone. Nevermind FV2 and all the others, lol! I wish there was more we could do to help, but they have stated several times on this forum that reporting things as snaggable is the most beneficial to them.

You're absolutely right, quest items were on the list in advance but now we're lucky if they ever make the list at all.
If admin are losing interest or struggling with personal issues then it is a great shame that we who would like to help are not able to do very much at all.
I have to run GU on a different pc as mine don't cope well with tabs open (they slow down too much) so I can't leave the feed page open but it would be interesting to know whether the items you do manage to report actually get added to the snag bar?

Picture?type=square

That's the only way I know of to report them. When I first started using GU, I believe back then quest items were on the snag bar before quests started. I'm not sure why it is different now. I leave a tab open all the time when I'm playing, with the GU "my feed" open. When I see new items I switch over to it and report it then. It's not the best solution and it requires a lot of time, but it is the fastest way to get things reported that I've found so far.

Right, so if I am understanding correctly basically when it comes to alerting admin of new items for quests, which have been coming thick & fast for quite some time now, or items that have been missed off the list we're stuffed!
eg: we have a new collection that is already on Day 3.
This is such a great shame as GU has been an enormous help in making the games both possible to enjoy as well as achievable. I would have thought that admin could do with all the assistance we players would be so happy to provide particularly if "real life" is demanding more attention.

Yes, I agree. That is the biggest flaw with the "my feed" feature. It does not let you scroll back more than a few moments. For it to be really useful it needs to go back at least a half hour, if not longer.

Thank you Melissa, I have the "my feed" open but I wanted to add 'birthday presents' to the drop down box so that admin could add to list as it isn't there.
I know in the past when a new quest opened I was able to add items to let admin know about them.
The report as snaggable link is only useful if item is on my recent feed & showing the link.

Picture?type=square

There are several tabs listed above. The 1 next to FV Forum is "my feed". If you click that tab it will list items from the game feed. You can then click on the link for items that haven't been added yet to the snag bar. It should say, "report item as snaggable". The drop down box seems to be working now for Chrome. This is the best way to let the admins know what needs to be added to the bar. There are so many items that are added daily to the game, that it is a very time-consuming, never-ending job to keep it up to date. This helps them stay on top of the new items that need to be added.

Melissa, where is the drop down box & how do I find it?

Picture?type=square

The drop down box that we report "snaggable" items in is not working properly. At least not on Chrome. It won't let you change what category each item is supposed to be reported in for the preference page.
