Light-bulbFacebook players now "blocking" their items from being snagged.

Please_share
by Linda Wicker - Nov 22, 2010 Star_s877 views

The same people who sit at the computer for hours force breeding and creating multiple accounts to get extras are the ones complaining that people who use the snag bar are lazy cheaters. They have found some app that blocks the snagging tool. I snag a couple times a day because I just don't have time to sit for hours clicking on posts like some of these "FV extremists" do. My snags have been severely reduced due to this new block. Is there any way to sneak around it?

This is directed to Cailyn Smith, sweetie, you need to read a little, and understand a subject complely before you make comments. You sound like a fool, The snag bar only does what you do when you collect from a friends feed. It cannot take more than one item. If you only want to share your items with certain users, then remove the others from your friends and neighbours, then you are not taking from them either, that is the FAIR way of sharing, give and take; not just take.

i am a breeder and i don't understand all the fuss, snagging is a way you can get things and not have to sit in front of the computer and waste the day away looking for items to put on your farm, . i send my foals out every 2 days whoever gets them is who gets them, i do lock some if a person request a certain foal ..i feel sharing is the way the game should be played ...true farmers will always give and help there neighbors for that is the true spirit of farmers ... add me if you need foals i don't care to give or share what i have for giving is better then receiving in my book , greed is what makes the world such a bad place to live in and causes all sorts of problems , as to the original topic , i know no way around the block besides adding people who dont mind if you snag ...have a great day all you gamers

I think having 2 accounts is cheating. It's also against Facebook's TOS. I hope those with 2 accounts get caught & banned. I think if you are a GU member and use the snag bar & you select your shares to certain people then you are a hypocrite. You snag everyone's but share to only a few. I hope you're not my neighbor cause I would delete you.

I am not a breeder just a FV player. I use the snag bar merly because when i sit here and try to click on the get the item within 5 seconds its gone so I have no alternative but to use the snag bar so i may play the game and build up my farm. I like the snag bar for this reason. I do not know how to do the breeding or have the time to do it with all i do other than play FV but I do love the rare horses. I am a horse lover and I wish i could just have some rare horses just to pretty up my farm. I have 2 clysdale foals and lost of dream clysdales and i think 2 rare foals (one given to me by one of my neighbors who breed it for me) but other than that I just play. Those who whine about the snag bar are just that.......whiners........shut up and play or just dont play. You have to go with the flow. If anyone wants to send me a paint foal I would take one.....LOL!! Since I just sold my beautiful paint colt (which I loved to death but couldnt afford him).

Ok, I am a breeder, and yes I have more than one account, but I do share my foals with everyone as well, I merely snag one with my second account, and I don't blame anyone else who does this. I purchase Rare Horses and I would like a few of the foals as well. This is the fault of Zynga, we should be allowed to keep a foal when we breed. There are times when I don't even get a foal, LOL Anyone getting angry, or bullying WILL be removed, NO exceptions. (=

believe it or not, I was accused of cheating by a neighbor because I was not locking my collection rewards so that she could get it. I consider that cheating way more than using a game bar that is withing the zynga rules. Needless to say...that person is no longer my neighbor. I consider that a form of bullying.

I'm not a breeder and I don't know nor have I heard of an app that blocks the snag bar. However I DO lock special items that I want only certain people to get. This makes it so my friends who also use the snag bar don't automatically get said posted items, and they can't see it either.

I lock my rainbow eggs to specific people including my family members so that way we can fill our coops up first with rainbow chickens, and my MIL can get the rainbow cottage she is STILL after.

For breeders, you could create a friend group and lock your foals or whatever your breed to that specific group of people so you know they are the ones getting them.

Personally, I don't care if others lock/block me from getting stuff from their feed. It's their choice and I'm not going to complain. I still get plenty of snags from everyone else. I'm not so greedy I have to get everything I possibly can from the feeds. I sell most of what I get as it is as I don't need it but just want the coinage; and that's AFTER I set my snag settings on what to ignore and what to get.

I am a breeder as well, and most of my foals are in groups..even when I post as links they are gone in seconds. I have many friends that are friends just for the purpose of sharing foals and calves. I post a lot of my other stuff regularly because I don't mind. I do have some friends on dial-up and such that play and I don't feel that it is fair to them that it is gone in a flash. I like to send them in messages as well. Depends on who I am creating them for if I post or not. It is nice to know that some actually appreciate all the OOS and crap that happens when you breed. It isn't as if us breeders get anything out of it other than knowing someone appreciates what we did! :) I think the bar is useful as well, but with most of my foals and calves..I always post links, but usually in my groups. :)

im a breeder i post links because use of the snag bar takes them all making it unfair to others. I post links then it makes it more fair.

Also I find those that snag using the bar don't comment or like it either

I'm not against breeders, I don't care how anyone plays the game, I just don't appreciate people having such an issue with how I play it.. I use the snag bar because I just don't have time to sit at the computer. I usually click it on, let my email load, and start supper, or give the kids a bath! When I do have time, I click links like everyone else because its fun to me to see what everyone has posted.

I also use the things FV creates to use such as the fertilize, all and helpers, etc. I don't have a lot of neighbors that actually get around and fertilize much, so that was a treat for me to get and use.

I just think ppl need to lighten up and realize not everyone plays the way they do. The ones who spend hours sitting there playing need to understand that not everyone has the luxury of time. I don't get why people HAVE such an attitude about it in the first place. If someone uses a snag bar, so what? Like others said it's free to everyone. I can't spend real cash on fancy horses to breed, so is that fair? I'm not sitting here getting pissed because someone plays the game differently than I do :)

By the way.. I DO play, I don't just "collect things."

Picture?type=square

I haven't seen this yet, but I do have people that will post the link instead of the post itself. These are, just like you said, the breeders. I am a breeder as well. I have made different list to post to certain people but it's because they actually play and don't just collect things.
