Light-bulb☆☆☆☆ REFRESH YOUR GIFT BOX IN 1 EASY STEP!! ☆☆☆☆

Please_share
by Mark Anthony - May 02, 2010 Star_s2,233 views

WHY REFRESH YOUR WHOLE FARM WHEN ALL YOU WANT TO DO IS REFRESH YOUR GIFT BOX?

PROBLEM:

IF YOU USE THE "Zynga Message Center" TO RECEIVE YOUR GIFTS, YOU KNOW THAT ONCE YOU ACCEPT ALL YOUR GIFTS, NEIGHBOR REQUESTS, ETC., YOU HAVE TO REFRESH YOUR SCREEN/ENTIRE FARM TO MAKE YOUR GIFTS SHOW UP IN YOUR GIFT BOX. THIS IS EXTREMELY IRRITATING.

SOLUTION: OPENING A MYSTERY BOX WILL REFRESH YOUR GIFT BOX INSTANTLY.

KEEP 3 UNOPENED MYSTERY BOXES (OR HOWEVER MANY YOU DECIDE) ON YOUR FARM (YOU MUST "USE" THEM TO GET THEM OUT OF YOUR GIFT BOX - BUT DO NOT OPEN THEM). AFTER ACCEPTING YOUR GIFTS FROM THE "Zynga Message Center", OPEN A MYSTERY BOX. THIS WILL REFRESH YOUR GIFT BOX INSTANTLY - WITHOUT YOU HAVING TO REFRESH YOUR SCREEN/ENTIRE FARM. I FIGURED THIS OUT BY MISTAKE! BUT DON'T WE FIGURE OUT MOST THINGS THAT WAY? LOL

let's see if it works, would be great since most of the time I can't load the game at all, and today a 503 server not available message instead of farming.. think if it comes to farming I don't farm much at all anymore

just move over the gift box for a brief moment and it will automatically refresh your gift-box it's as easy as 1 2 3

@ Alan Thanks for the heads up about the meeting being cancelled, I was wondering why I was standing alone in the field :)

@ Lightning Springer - My advice is to just ignore all items on your Facebook Requests page. FarmVille has not made it too time consuming to try and accept items the old way since you have to reopen the Facebook Requests page after every item you accept. I just don't have the time to sort through who I accepted on the Zynga Message Center and then reload that page 25 or more times to get everyone else.

@ Robert Thompson - Actually, we had to cancel that scheduled FarmVille Addicts Anonymous meeting. We all have crops due to be harvested at that time. :)

@ Everyone - There is now an even easier way to refresh your Giftbox: Simply click on it. For two days now, my Giftbox automatically updates with any new items added to it while I was on my farm, including anything I got off the Zynga Message Center, when I simply clicked on the Giftbox to open it. If this hasn't been rolled out to your farm yet, I'm sure it will soon. So just open your Giftbox first before taking the time to refresh the page.

@lightning springer its annoying and tedious but all you can really do is either make a note of what was aceepted or click on all the items on the requests page on your profile

Great tip. My box doesn't seem to refresh itself but it does it I open a mystery box or egg :)
THANKS!

When using the ZMC though, the requests are still on Facebook and I don't know who I've done and who I haven't as not all are on the ZMC. Anyone any advice for this please?

I'm new here to Gamers Unite! and I'm so glad I found it. So many tips and tricks for a game I recently started playing and am quickly becoming addicted to. I appreciate the help! Very nice tip.

Nice little trick to find. I hate refreshing it everytime I receive a new gift when openning others.
