Over the weekend, we just launched a new gift section on FrontierVille which you can access by clicking on the Gifts tab above.

As always, we construct gift links which you can use to ask for gifts from your friends.

ask for gifts

In addition, we now show you which GU! member friends have helped you. You can ask them to start a wishlist, and help them back. We also help track when you can help them again (FrontierVille only allows you to gift to a specific friend once every 24 hours):

Help your friends

Now you can receive exactly the gifts you need and give back exactly what your friends desire :) Please try this out and let us know how you like it. Also help spread the word about this new feature by 'liking' or sharing this post.

We're considering revamping the FarmVille gift section in this way too, but wanted to get your feedback first. What do you think?

Snag bar is just not working, have removed it, downloaded it, given the necessary permissions etc but then it gets to the page where you put you choices on what you would like to snag, it greys out and the little window pops up the "communicating with snag bar" and it just stays there forever. I have left it up to 15 minutes to see if anything would happen. So what now? is it not working or what????? Please help!

@Tom Person: sorry this reply is coming in late.

You said

What about a list of friends that have posted a farmville link on their facebook page in the past 14 or 30 days? Would effectively tell us who is activly playing......and therefore who isn't.

I'm thinking about Tim's suggestion, but there are lots of technical hurdles. *Even* is user gives us "read_stream" permission, that permission is only active when the user is using our website, we can't retrieve it when they're no logged on. Also, there's a privacy issue, the 'read_stream' permission was given for to access the feed (for snagging or perusing), not explicitly to determine activity of user.

And of course, we can't do anything for non GU neighbors, and non-active GU neighbors.

I totally agree with everyone's comments.

I love Gamer's Unite. The neighbors that I have gotten from here are usually active players and will respond to most requests for gifts.

I LOVE the Farmville Snag Bar. I have mine very tightly set up so that I am only snagging about 1 in 20 items. I just don't need any more fuel, flowers, lost animals, etc.

Please make a Snag Bar for Frontierville. It seems that most of the materials/gift requests are posted to the Home Page, where only a few people look to click. A Snag Bar could click those items to send out as well as pick up needed materials. Similar to the Help with Barnraising on Farmville.

And as always... Still looking for neighbors that gift on a regular basis or at least send something back when they get something. LOL

Happy Gaming, Angi

I wish they could do a snagbar too. I love the one for farmville cause I can pick out what I want it to snag so I dont have to wrooy about getting things I don't need. On frontierVille I can't seem to get the feathers to show up. I get them but they never show up in my collections. Does anyone else have this problem??

Picture?type=square

i think this is great are you planning the snag bar to cover frontierville and zynga poker in the near future would love to know about it. thanks again for this great app

I would love a snagbar in Frontierville. I just installed the snagbar for FV and I LOVE IT!!! I wish i had it when the Tuscan Wedding was so popular, I spent many of hours trying to get the ingredients and they were gone in literally seconds. I would love a snagbar that would get me more XP in Frontierville. Thanks!!!!

Is it possible to add collectibles? that is what I really want now. that would be great. I also agree with someone below that it would be nice to tell if a neighbor has become inactive.

* @Tim: unfortunately, we've no idea when a member last played a game. We don't even know what games you *play unless you self report.

Great idea. How about another suggestion, show somewhere on each neighbour's page when last they logged in / played. I would like to remove those that do not play anymore etc. as i keep sending gifts to people who do not return / play anymore.

Thanks
