Light-bulbPlease, dont't use the snag bar for claiming truffles

Please_share
by Sławek Zawistowski - Sep 06, 2010 Star_s595 views

Recently a new feature, truffle hunting, has been added to farmville. The idea is that you send your pigs to look for truffles. If they find a truffle on your neighbours farm, you can post it to their wall. When your neighbour collects it, there's an option to send it back to you.
Now here's the problem, the snag bar claims the truffle, but doesn't send it back.
The only way to get the truffle you found, is to have it returned by the person you send it to. Nobody can claim that truffle, but the person it is sent to.
Right now, the snag bar is effectively killing this feature.
Please everyone, uncheck the truffles in your snag bar settings. Nobody can claim it but you.
I was very angry when I sent 10 truffles to people and haven't received any. Only when a truffle has been posted to my wall I checked that the snag bar got it, but I could not send it back.
Please disable claiming truffles by the snag bar, this is seriously against fair play. You don't lose anything when you send the truffle back, you also don't risk anything if you don't claim it right away, because noone else can take it.

Not sure what the whole point of truffles is anyway? XP points? Coins? Collecting so many or posting so many that you get some reward?

I got the pig sty when it came out specifically because I got tired of manually harvesting 20+ pigs. Now I can do so in just one click. I don't feed them slop and only tried that once and did a few pig hunts but after that I failed to see the whole point of the truffle hunting... can anyone clue me in here? Seems like it's just busy work, to me. I've got crops to tend to and such.

I think it's worth putting feed into the feed trough because you get a unique animal out of it, worth putting work into the horse stable/dairy barns/chicken coops because you can find rewards that way, etc. But the pig sty thing? Not getting it at all.

I don't have the snag bar collecting my truffles, but I have had something go wrong with FV/FB in the middle of trying to send one back. In the event that you bar does snag one (or something else goes wrong that makes it impossible for you to return the truffle to your neighbor), you can just send the resulting pig to the neighbor who sent you the truffle (when you open it) instead of sharing it on your wall. That's what I did - sent a message with the link for the prize pig, along with a little explanation of what happened. I don't want my neighbors to think I don't return truffles! :-)

Well I see a problem with that, and with the whole dang snag bar too if you ask me. I have spent alot of time going through my preferences picking and choose presicely what I want to snag. The problem is the stupid snag bar just goes ahead anyway and snags every single little thing all the time. So I spend most of my time either regifting or selling most of what Ihave snagged. So unclicking my truffles won't do me or anyone else any good because the snag bar can't read what it is supposed to snag and what it is not supposed to snag. If anyone has any suggestions on how to get the bar to ONLY snag what I tell it to, I'm sure open to listen.

we got off track of what (Stawek) was saying I think gamer unite should remove it from snaggables because it is interactive and not just a single person bonus and to me is the only true thievery in snagging

It is 85% of pregnant sows and truffles that go to inactive players. It's suppose to be a way of getting them back into playing I think, However, I agree. I have gotten to the point of where I'm ready to delete the inactive players as well. It's not right.

As far as the snagging goes, Did you do it from the settings from the toolbar? I noticed that when I did it from the menu on the website, It didn't do anything. But when I clicked on the settings menu from the toolbar, and clicked on the things that I didn't want, it finally stopped snagging them.

I felt really, really bad for snagging all the truffles, I had no idea that I was able to send back!!

I would say that the pregnant pigs going to inactive accounts is wrong because I have an account of mine that has 5 pregnant sows that were posted to me to claim and I play that account on a regular basis.

Only one of the farms I found truffles on was inactive. It really sucks when you send that truffle to an active player and they don't bother sending it back. I remove inactive neighbors as I find them to avoid that issue, but then FV keeps popping their name up anyway as some of them are friends, not just FV neighbors. They need to change that to where we keep one and they get one.....it's not really fair to us who play everyday and share.

I have been deleting my firends who dont play fv.

I have sent numerous pigs out to hunt, I think the truffle hunting as Linda said is much better on inactive players farms, just like pregant pigs run away from inactive players, we should be able to keep those poor abused pigs, there is nobody to feed them over there.  I have yet to send a pregant pig to an active player and I have not hunted truffles on any active farm.  Since most of my neighbors that are inactive are in the lower levels of play, I considered that maybe I was working my way up but today I hunted truffles on the same inactive farms I did 3 days ago.

I've also noticed that they only seem to go hunting on ppl's farms that are no longer playing. Of course you won't get those back. Not fair FV!

i have uncheck items i dont want to snag, but they are being snagged. I have try uninstalling and reinstalling snag bar but nothing works. There alot of items i dont want to snag.

Picture?type=square

Yep....I didn't uncheck it from the get-go and a neighbor sent me one and I was unable to send it back to them so I unchecked it immediately. Unfortunately, it would be nice if the ones I sent would get returned. Out of about 20 truffles sent I've only received 4 back....3 of the ones I sent were gold and only got one of them back. Getting to the point that I'm gonna start keeping track of the ones that don't return and will not post theirs on their wall period. Yeah, I know sounds b***hy, but hey!
