Question-whiteCo-Op and people who use you!!!!!

Please_share
by Vanashree Vani Moodley - Apr 09, 2010 Star_s1,351 views

I recently did a co-op, and after 2 friends and myself, planted and harvested almost 60% people started joining the co-op. I think thats really unfair, as they still get the rewards for doing nothing, clearly farmville should stop accepting people joining your co-op, after you have seeded the required amount???? Any thoughts

does farmville even care that the majority is annoyed about this ???? If you finish plant your co-opp no body else should be able to join in unless you invite them, COME ON FARMVILLE let's do something about this.
This is not being a good neighbor this is about people taking advantage of our work, and want to get what they don't work for

im trying to get my mvp blue ribbon on co ops but none of my neighbors help, if some of guys would help it mean alot. i only need mvp 7 more times. as one in this post has said you scratch my back i scratch yours. the favors will always be returned. anytime i have promised to help anyone in the game i've done so. it really sucks to have to use all my farmcash having to go solo in these co ops. it also sucks when i help but the neighbors never help me.

Totally agree with Kellea..is it really so hard to let people get in on something????  When I do a co-op, so long as everything is planted..I invite people to join and get the benefits :)

Its happened to me but I really don't mind cuz its my neighbors Its all in fun. So you may join mine if you like.I figure its kind of a pay back for all the neat gifts I have received over the coarse of my game.

I have had it happen to me also, but with the same regards, I've had people join in the end that saved me because the graph only shows the seeding up to a certain point and not the extra plantings. If one of your beginners has an emergency and can't harvest in time, the people that joined in the end may save you when they harvest. Also, to see where people are or if they are even planting is to visit their land and see what's planted. We are suppose to send free gifts to our friends in FV anyways. It's only bad when you can't get the prize right? Sometimes timing can be a little off for busy children and they do play, we need to be role models :) Play nice :) Share :)

I actually encourage a handful of my nieghbors to join my Co-op jobs just as I'm about to Harvest.. My reasoning is.. You scratch my back and i'll scratch yours.. However I am picky though because If you start a co-op job, you better Harvest on time to get Gold. Or I will put you on my Do Not Call List.. lol.. I will only free load off a Co-op job,, If we are in agreement.. Some do take advantage...

John Allen, don't be surprised if people start hopping on. All they have to do is look at how much seeding is done in the job completion window.

I agree with both Vanashree and Jessica. The problem is that Farmville does not let people know time and date the job was started; how much time left to achieve gold (before joining it); and yes, they need to block it so that people cannot join once all of the required crops have been seeded. I also think that they should allow the "Co-Op manager/starter" the option to allow the person to help or deny based on performance of previous jobs attempted. This will make people be better neighbors if they want to get the bonuses like the rest of us.

oh i so agree with you i start a co op and only 2 or 3 people help at first then when you are almost done everybody wants in lol

I just want to join coops with people who will finish. I can have about 475 plots but the past two coops I have joined the leader did not finish them and joined another coop somewhere else. I want to get my helper medal and I am getting frustrated.

I total agree there should be a button to remove neighbors who are not working for their share! This has happened to me on more than one situation... Please help

Picture?type=square

funny thing is now my wife and I have two accounts each and together we can plant 1900 squares so we get gold everytime but no one joins our co-ops because they see that we are 0% complete until minutes before we harvest all of it, so it happens so fast most people don't even know what happend. I gold mastered everyone except morning glorys already.

Picture?type=square

it happens to me every time i do one...and they reap the rewards and i plant and seed all of it and then it said the person who won didnt plant anything ended up winning the gold i was like what the he##? but anyways i agree i think i will stop doin these maybe only with real friends ? i wish there was a kick off button for these people haha

ok another question lol i know this has nothing to do with this conversation but cant figure out how to start a post so /... how do i help plant stuff in the co - op farming ne ways cuz i cant seem to figutre it out so i havent been abler to complete a co op yet can any bady help me out with this?

Picture?type=square

who cares the point of co-op is too get the prize for completing it in the required amount of time maybe you wouldnt have completed it on time if it was just you and your friends ... i welcome any help i can get

Picture?type=square

I COMPLETELY AGREE...THAT IS HAPPENING TO ME RIGHT NOW...AS SOON AS MY GROUP SEEDED ALL NEEDED FOR THE GOLD, 4 PEOPLE JOINED IN TO JUST "REAP THE REWARD"...NOT DOIING A SINGLE THING!!....SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS!!

For all those whinning about free loaders joining their co-ops. Simple solution>>>REMOVE THEM FROM YOUR FRIENDS LIST
Hey John you can't remove or delete someone that is not on your friends list. Cause the people I seen on there weren't on my friends list they were on the other persons friends list in the co-op so they would have to delete them off of their friends list. lol

Picture?type=square

Too Donna Jeffreys I don't think you were Freeloading at all, sounds like you made an honest mistake. :-) That can happen to anyone.

Picture?type=square

I know what you mean I think it's a bunch of BS too. You should be able to DELETE people when they do that. You know that window that pops up when you go to look at the job your on. That's where they should put a Delete People button on there, but only give it too the Person who started the Co-Op. Just like a job I was on just yesterday & through the nite. We already had everything planted and Three people joined out Co-Op and that's just not right to me. And they should be Deleted from the Job. Those people weren't on my Friends List they were on someone else's Friends List you can see their Names but you can't see a picture of them. Sandbaggers and freeloaders otta be shot on the spot! hahahaha

Picture?type=square

I am one of these freeloaders. Not because I intended to be. Here's what happened. I had planted grapes. Then I thought I would check out this new fv thing. And there was someone looking for people to plant grapes. So I joined. Well MY grapes didn't count. So my contribution showed up as a 0. I didn't understand what I had done wrong UNTIL a friend asked me to join him in a co-op. I told him I didn't think it was worth it. He told me to try it again. So this time I joined AND THEN I planted. As I was planting there was a bar across the bottom that showed how many I was planting or something like that. Anyway, now I GET IT! Altho I have since joined others who are kinda goofy but I think I have a better understanding on how this works (kind of).
