Light-bulbTired of people pulling their posts out of the feed and posting them as links

Please_share
by Kathy Howard Bland - Jul 14, 2010 Star_s2,982 views

It seems some players have decided that it is more "fair" to post their calves, ponies, etc as links rather than the normal FV feed post.  Supposedly this is done to prevent "snagging" however, FB puts all the FV feed items together and GU puts them all together to make it easy to find them all in one place.  Now I can't find their posts because they are buried in all the other flotsam & jetsam that is the FB feed.  And it's not like I'm not contributing since I breed rares too but I post my to the feed as FV intended.
So, I have decided that whenever one of my neighbors starts posting this way, I am going to remove them.  I don't need neighbors who make it harder for me to enjoy the game.  I've already kicked 3.

One reason people have resorted to this is the 50 post limit update Zynga has enforced. It's nothing against snag bars, or anything of that nature, they are just trying to ensure that the link isn't lost between FV and the posting process.

Tara..I`m with you. I try & help as many of my neighbors as I can. If posting gift links in FB bothers people I`ve never heard anything about it. My people let me know if they get it or not ,say thank you or say nothing but like.
You can`t please everybody & why this 1 person think`s her opinion is the only one that counts is beyond me.
I wont have difficult neighbors on my farm and to this day have only booted 1 for co-op hustling.
We can help our neighbors any way we seem beneficial & that won`t be inconsiderate to other`s.
Bland is boring. Sharing link`s is the way !

I am kind of new at all of this but am learning as I go... Good thing my roommate is more into this then I am. I try to give what I have and what I am sure or at least think my neighbors need. Don't have the know how to do the special sends or snags. Love this thing because between work and school I would not get anywhere at all for missing it. But IF you can and want to you do.. If you don't tell me about the black stallion that you gave to your 300 closest friends .. I can't get upset about what I don't know. heck I'll still wish I had one and don't get one because I'm not spending money I don't have to spare on one. So what. I guess I'll go cry in my snagged beer. oh well lol

I wish I had all day to sit on my computer and breed awesome creatures on Farmville. But, I have a job out of my home to go to. Plus a daughter and husband, (who sometimes get neglected for my addiction anyway!) For the most part I play the old-fashioned way. I put my babies in the nursery, my cows in my dairy farms and my horses in my stable. I collect and tend when I get home from work- EVERY DAY- and post to the feed whatever results. have snag bar which is set very selectively as to what I snag. Usually however, I don't even use it. I just play Farmville on Farmville.com and check the feed for anything interesting. Also because I can only snag on Mozilla and Google Chrome is WAY faster so it's usually the browser I have up. But, my point is, I hope that my neighbors consider me a good neighbor because I certainly try to be. A previous post referenced neighbors that took without giving. Does she mean gifts? Or posts to the feed or what? I do all that so I think I am covered.......

I dislike the links purely because I don't like them in my FB feed. I "save" my feed for real life friend stuff and don't want gaming links clogging it up.

When I want to to share an item with a select group of people, I do that in the customize box. My friends are grouped into lists: Non-gamers, All gamers, Good gamers.

When I share 99% of things, I select ALL gamers. All neighbors get a chance but my non-gaming friends don't get all the junk posts.

When I have something special or rare to share, I only publish it "Good gamers" - they are neighbors that are either really good at sharing too or close friends.

I much prefer this way - I am not annoying anyone with links AND it's much quicker.

I myself dont care what I snag. If you have enough friends that your bound to get something good. Honestly I know what your talking about but I dont know how to do it. Dont want to either. Im kinda lazy that way.

I, personally, don't post straight to my feed if I have a foal or calf I want to share with my friends; I make the post only visible to me (so no one can snag, no one can click but me, basically); then I copy the URL for my friends, share with who I want, then--and only if there's more "clicks" left to the link--I'll post it to a group as a link. I got most of my foals, not from the snag bar, but from skulking around on the feeds of rare collection groups. Your neighbors aren't trying to make it harder for you, they're just playing the way they see it fit to.

It is a game!!!!

Honestly I am one of those ppl that post them like you hate. Now not everytime or anything like that I purely do it to try and give to some of my friends I don't get to send a free gift everyday, Out of say 50 feed post maybe 10 I will do, I got so sick of ppl never giving but taking I had alot of BAD neighbors, but since then I have weeded thru my friends and removed the ones that were terrible neighbors and went back to simply posting the feed. Cause not allowing farmville to post them and posting them myself or asking who wants them is very time consuming for me. I just try to help a few needing help badly and keep my bad neighbors away from my good stuff, if you know what I mean,LOL. But like I said since I have managed to weed those bad people out I started posting them again normally. So i say ask the person first what the deal is cause some are simply trying to help out some much needed help neighbors and some have or had bad neighbors like me not that we try to beat the system just trying to be nice to some of the ppl that ALWAYS miss our stuff, I know 1st come 1st serve but sometime my guilt gets to me when is see the same ppl getting the same animals and the same ppl missing all those animals so sometimes I try to cut them a break and help them out some. Better to try and keep EVERYONE happy, because what is FV without your neighbors right :) Can't please everyone but you can try sometimes.

I don't think I'm an extraordinary person in any respect, but I seem to be one of the few people who have 'gotten' this one simple fact about Farmville:

Nobody owes me anything.

Well, now that that's said, carry on.

Picture?type=square

WHAT THE CRAP?!! how do you even post something on a link ? i might want to do this some time.

Picture?type=square

LOL at all of you. This game is all about finding people who play the way you do. I posted my peeve. I don't care that I don't get their posts - I just find it annoying to have my non-FV facebook feed cluttered with "BLUE FOAL" or whatever because people want to make sure the "right" people get their post. Private trading or gifting links is different because I never even know what friends do that, nor do I care if they do.

I actually received some PMs calling me names and saying I don't "deserve" any foals since I posted this. Jeez, if you think I'm a jerk don't ask to add me. If you want to add me just so you can delete me - how childish is that? It's a game FFS, if you want to make links all day go for it , why not make a custom list for "foal worthy friends". I don't even have time to consider who is and who isn't posting stuff except when it comes outside of the normal feed.

So don't PM me, post your opinion, threats or whatever here. My point is play your game your way - and find neighbors who play the same.

Did I miss 'the memo'????
Is there some sort of MEGA CASH PRIZE for all of this work??
I find all of these silly threads amusing.

REMINDER: ..... THIS IS A VIRTUAL GAME!! When its all done..... it's gonna be DELETED.
So, ENJOY the extra challenges, have fun with what you can and delete those that stress you.

Sure...... I've had the odd rude neighbour who did something like ruin my chance at getting a gold medal in a co-op, but it's ALL part of the game. Win some.... lose some!!! I love playing this FREE game... for amusement. But seriously, when we hit Level 100 and have nothing left to do.... then what??

Back to your regularly scheduled lives. :D

**** Hey you....... your peas are touching my carrots! "WAAAAAAAA!!!"

WAIT A MINUTE!! I know I already voiced my opinion below but I just realized something as I went to my second account that has only a couple neighbors on. Then a wandering stallion popped on & I went to copy the link and sign back into my original account just to SHARE it with some of my 800 friends. Than I thought of you, sitting there complaining & got all upset thinking how if you were on my list- you would be ungrateful that I even offered to share it to others because you couldn't snag it. Ugh. Im so done here..

Picture?type=square

as frustrating as it is, i like the extra effort to find the links, and its not only to hide them, some people like to send links to specific people first( ie, i send links to my gf sometimes because shes low on animals, etc), and and then post it so my friends can still get the link, which is more of a favor than trying to hassle people, and even if thats not the case all the time, cant people without the snag bar have a chance to get items, instead of "Someone already adopted the blank, partner! ?

After all this is virtual world. And it is a game. I am satisfied with the way everyone play. It is their way of enjoying their FV game. I post links once in a way to give a special gift to a neighbor. Say if it is their Birthday or any other occasion. Also I gift them in this way if a favor is done like helping a desperate moment to finish a barn or stable. So that is the way of my playing the game and enjoying. Since it allows only to send 30 gifts a day and having more than 100 neighbors this is one way of sending gifts.

@ kathy first OFF I AM 1 OF THEM FARMERS WHO DO THIS . I put on my status message BULE PONY FOAL!!! BLUE PONY FOAL!!!! I post the link. then after i post the link. right below it in the same status message that holds my link, i put BLUE PONY FOAL !!!! BLUE PONY FOAL !!! ENJOY........ this has nothing to do with snag and all my neighbors enjoy what i do. We all work together all 145 of us and we make sure every1 has ponys and make sure every1 grabs links to b equal ., i have one of every horse and 2 of every pony i got these from a friend. I like half my neighbors didnt have none, i could never snag non or catch it with my finger . so 1 of my friends i added as a neighbor sent me a link to my chat on FB. it was for a pink pony . afteer i got this and a couple other 1s he gave me i stated breedeing. i went thru every FVN and i asked then what horses and ponys they had and they would tell me if they didnt have a pony in it i would give them 1 to make sure we all have 1 and can benifit others, its called SPREDDING THE WELTH ... the more people who have these rare items the more we all can get somewhere.when i would post it normally it would b the same 5 people who got my ponys thats not right so i put up a status for a couple days and spoke with every neighbor and thats what i came up with. we all agreed. 1 of my neighbors has 20 diff accounts just to send herself gifts, is this cheeting ?? its gettn the job done. so im sorry if u dont agree with this . but all my neighbors work together and post links and all its a daily thing .and we teach each other hoow to breed . WHICH IS NOT EASY SO I LIKE TO SHARE WITH EVERY1. im proud of what we do and we share it with our friends and teach thats what GU is made for. im just doing it on my own with other fellow GU friends . and we share with our friends thats doing more for the people in the FV community then that SNAGG BAR.. it took like 5 days but al my friends are breeding . since saterday i have produced 29 pony's/horses . so IM ALWAYS LOOKIN G FOR MORE NEIGHBORS WHO WANT PLAY LIKE WE DO AND SHARE . PLZ FEEL FREE TO VISIT MY fb PAGE AND HIT ME UP I WILL ACCEPT ALL REQUESTS BUT THE MIN U DONT PLAY FAIR ITS GONE. I POST EVERYTHING ELSE MY CALFS / FOALS JUST NOT THE PONYS OR THE LIMITED HORSES I LINK THEM . HAVE A GUD DAY

Picture?type=square

bitch moan and complain try to make it fair for all and neither is happy anyone that doesn't like how I play the GAME can DELETE me I have 300 neighbors and get many many request each day so the threat to DELETE me makes it easier on me to clean out the crybabies and non players and add new ones.

Picture?type=square

If started, then I also advice you to delete all the other neighbours who use snag bar (unfair, they sometimes collect things before than u can do it!!!), then u will stay the only snagbar around, so u will be able to collect everything :))))))))))))))

Picture?type=square

And I am afraid, that if u start removing neighbours that post links instead of sharing, u are going to remove all your breeders neighbours, because most of them post links like this to some extend...
