Light-bulb#1 Unoffical Farmville Fan Site Challenge

Please_share
by Richard Wilson Smith II - Jun 05, 2010 Star_s7,869 views

As you all know I'm proud that I'm a part of this site. I don't hide it from my neighbors and have something like 700+ gamers on my friends list. If you all haven't benefited from this site your not looking in the right places. Sure we are hated and feared by some but, the community is great! Even I have a question from time to time and I can get the best reliable information here. I am a fan of other sites instance Farmer Brown, Farmville Fanatic, even the freak page that (currently boast the #1 spot), plus many many others.

Now with that said let me get to the reason for this post. I know admin and mods are over whelmed most of the time. Hence, one of the reasons top posters take time out of their days to make sure what we know you know. And some days the community overwhelms us to where we can't even breath or harvest :) Some of us are assertive others laid back. Still think about this everyone has the right to be themselves. We all wasn't raised the same nor do we all have the same religions. I personally might be a redneck country boy. Yet I'm not a racist, bigot, or uneducated. I might be from WV but, I'm not an inbreed. Stereotyping is just as bad today as it was yesterday and you can't fix stupid, point blank! From time to time I fall short and go off on someone i wasn't made to be perfect. I'd like to see a new tactic when you see hate & drama... thank them for bringing more attention to the site. Hopefully one of their neighbors might have a brain. When they join to make a stupid post thank them again for adding to our numbers. They too then get on the list and can be judged by their neighbors. That's when we get what we want!

I also dislike the fact people taboo a group of people for whatever reason they feel necessary. I don't care where you come from what you believe or what you do as long as you don't personally harm myself or my loved ones. But I'm actually about to cash in on all my help I've given you all. I need a favor from yall I need ya to stand tall do not cower. Don't be ashamed of who you are or what your made of. You have a purpose. This favor is kinda simple it don't take much effort. Anyways here it is!

SHARE THIS SITE! IF YOU LIKE A POST THEN CLICK LIKE!!!! LET THE POSTER KNOW YOU APPRECIATE THEM! THEN SHARE IT !!! THAT IS WHAT GOOD NEIGHBORS DO! LET NEXT & HER TEAM KNOW YOU APPRECIATE THEM! I KNOW ME AND MY TEAM DOES OR WE WOULDN'T BE HERE.

Now my favor don't require you to spend your money, cost you a rare foal, or even coins so, it shouldn't be that hard to fulfill. if your neighbor is fearful reassure them. Hearing appreciation and seeing it from folks helps me keep coming back to this group. I'm sure it does others as well.
Thanks again for your time! Thanks again to Chao & Bebe (Gamers Unite Admin & mods) but, most of all The Community! Without you it would still be a small group sharing great information that's not watered down :P

MY GOAL IS NOT TO SIT AT THE #2 SPOT BUT, TO BE #1 SO WE HAVE HEAVY INFLUENCE ON ZYNGA!
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! DON'T FORGET THOSE LIKES AND SHARES! IT'S HOW OTHERS LEARN FROM US!

Respectfully,
Rich Smith

I am tempted by more than average gameplay!

Very nice and thoughtful thread Rich =) Yea sometimes I do see you post some very hard hitting posts and I think to myself holy c***! I wish he would tone it down a bit but I understand you're just being passionate for what you believe in and everyone gets that way every once in awhile so it's cool. It's not cool when people constantly bombard you with rude comments or start the name calling which is totally uncalled for.

This site is really about the community. We all come here to share and exchange information as freely as possible Yes, some things will not be allowed if it's way over the line but for the most part Gamers Unite is pretty much a laid back site. We try to let everyone post their views and opinions without censorship as much as possible. I've seen too much censorship on other fan sites,I am not going to name names, and it really turns me away from those type of sites. I personally don't think it matters because if they can't find what they're looking for in a particular site they will find it sooner or later somewhere else. I also think people should freely have access to information to educate themselves and from there they can make their OWN decision on an issue.

The gap is narrowing!!! Keep sharing!

Very well said Rich, and I agree with you 100%. If more people would check it out then they would know we are not thieves, nor do we wish to cause them any harm. We just want to play our game to the best of our ability, and having Gamers Unite enables us to do so.

[email protected] Barbara Hass .... This is the nicest post i have seen in ages. Keep snagging :)

I use this site to learn- there are some of us who rarely or not too regularly get on- and having a site like this to keep us up-to-date can make a difference to an enjoyable experience or not. I appreciate all that I have learned from those who are in the know- Big Thank You.

I appreciate all you do. I'm very ill, plus have been permanently and severly work injured for 12 years, with sight, hearing, brain, and muscle damage to name a few. Your site and the toolbar, save me hours and hours of difficulty seeking bonuses and clicking to help my neighbors, all of that is done using Gamer's Unite info and snagging. Been on it for about 3 weeks, and makes all the difference for me. I stand up for this and you, and have been helping some neighbors understand, or even be aware, of this choice. Plus it works on any computer, unlike others (ie zynga/farmville and mafia wars toolbars.)

I have had to delete three neighbors for posting nonsense about Gamers Unite, cheating, etc and then telling everyone to check to see if their neighbors are on the GU list. I don't get into debates with these guys - I just quietly delete them as neighbors as soon as I read their "threats" and move on...there are plenty of other people out there who enjoy Farmville and know it is just a game - it is not real, remember - we all shoud have lives. So, bottom line is, I don't take it seriously, I play to relax, if someone hassles me I delete them from my friends list and forget about them. I am happy to accept new neighbors who just want to play the game.

Your entry is thoughtful and appreciated, Rich! I was just harassed & unfriended by a bully who is very anti-GU nay-saying the site and use of the toolbar as cheating, and going so far as to alluding to it promoting an addiction! Yes, I blocked him, but FB's software allowed him to keep appearing in my msgs. because he rode in on a few other friends' as well. His & other naysayers spread the ugly hacker rumors & those shouting "Zynga will ban you if you use the Toolbar," such that several have members left GU. I responded intelligently w/quotes from this site & my own knowledge of programming, to friends & this bully, a "right thinker," as a friend would qualify him, but to no avail w/the bully. The friends remain off the site though continue to support & play w/me. I am not leaving and encourage you to continue your worldly views!!!

@ Rick Smith, EXACTLY, my cousin Karla works for McAfee in Dallas, and she'll be the first one to tell you, the employees are hackers that get paid the big bucks to close the loopholes, although they dont always succeed. She herself isn't one of the programmers, shes in their marketing department, but ALL these people who R against GU r stupid and need to know that even IF, I said IF, Zynga does take action (which i doubt) theres always going to be around it, ALWAYS, no matter what, thats what they get paid to do.

@ Kimberly I would have to agree completely with your comment! I think in general people fear "hackers" from all the warnings that have been bread into us from the very start of our pc usage. they don't realize it's hackers who make security programs like Norton anti-virus blah blah blah. who are very well known for recruiting hackers to test their programs. It's slowly growing and I think more are open about it today than they was ever before. I don't think anyone could tick me off enough to commit a few internet related felonies:)
They sure have tried though!

Please don't listen to threats of crashing or hacking your computer. As long as you use your antivirus,malware & spyware programs regularly,you shouldn't have any problems at all. Me & alot of my friends I have online know computers very well. That's all they are is empty threats with no action taken. I never worry. If you all ever need any computer help look me up & if I can't help you my friends maybe could.
This is all suppose to be fun,not stressful.

As for me who is definitely game challenged, I appreciate all you do to try and explain things, I'll admit sometimes I don't understand but that's my fault not yours, (Alziemers) and the shakes can really keep me hopping, to bad I'm not a rabit :)
