Light-bulbNow you can snag Cityville!

Please_share
by Amy Wong - Jan 29, 2011 Star_s96,619 views

Last month, we asked our members what game we should add on the Snag bar, and by far, the game that had the most vote was Cityville. Thanks for all who voted, and we are happy to announce that we have just released the Snag Bar with Cityville added! Your toolbar should be updated automatically, but if it's not, please click on the "Reload Toolbar" on the Snag Bar.  If you do not have the Snag Bar yet, you can download it here. Then, you can select Cityville on the Snag Bar preferences page to start getting items. (it is unchecked as default)

We also released another interesting feature, it's called "Stop Snag Bar after X number of items." This feature will allow you to set the number of how many items you want the Snag Bar to collect and automaticaly stop.

Since all of the three games, Farmville, Frontierville, Cityville have limits on how many items you can get a day, you can use this feature to have the Snag Bar automatically stop after it collected a certain number of items. For example, you might want to stop the Snag bar after you collected 80 Valentines and save the rest for other items.  Then you can set the Snag Bar to stop at 80 items and select the Valentines only. Should be usefull, but there are some caveats:

  • We don't stop when the Snag is in process. We scan your wall every minute to see what's avaiable so if there were many people posting that minute, or if it's the initial snag where we look at the history, it might already exceed the max number you've set. For example, if you set the max number to "80" Valentines, but when we scanned your wall and found 90 Valentines, we will still collect 90 of them. But it will not scan anymore subsequently. This should only affect people who have lots of game posts on thier feed, or people who chose a very common item that can be found a lot at each scan.
  • We will notify you when we stop looking for a certain game after it reached or exceeded your max settings, but if the scan is stilll in progress, we will still continue to snag for that current snag. But the Snag Bar will not look anymore subsequently.

For most people, the above shouldn't be a problem, but again, for people who have many many posts on their wall (in other words, many available items lying around), the max will exceed so if you are looking for a more precise way, you should stop the Snag Bar manually. Also, setting a really low number like the screenshot might not be a good idea if you have lots of posts.

Other than that, we think this will make the Snag Bar more useful for many people and hope you enjoy this new feature.

We are also working on not setting new released items added on the Snag Bar automatically selected as a default. For example, when Farmville releases a new duck, it is automatically selected on your preferences to be snagged, but because of the new limit on Farmville, we are considering to change this behavior.

Let us know how you like the Snag Bar, and if you have any questions, please make sure you go through the help page :D

Hi Just A Guy, at the moment, Send X Get X responds to the posts that

request the 7 Winter items
Zoning Permits
Fire Axe
Chocolates
2 posts that give coins for sending Energy and Seed Packets

However, if it is preferred by members, we can always change the 2 post that give coins for sending energy and Seed packets to the Coins checkbox.  It's kind of a toss up which group those two posts go into.

@Tracy Mclean - The Snag Bar is nothing more than an automated you. This means there is nothing you have to do to "claim" the items you have snagged. Whether manually or with the Snag Bar, the game you snag for takes care of distributing the items you have collected.

@Leshawne Fontenot-mcqueen

If you are referring to the built-in limits in the Snag Bar, those numbers restart everytime you start the Snag Bar. So just stop and restart the Snag Bar and you will start snagging again. You can also increase the built-in limits by going to your Toolbar Preferences page, click the "option" links for the games you play, and changing the amounts.

If the game you are playing is the one that limits how many items you can snag each day, there is nothing you can do about that. All you can do is wait for the game to release you and allow you to snag again.

I don't know about all the games, but farmville items go to your giftbox, except fot the few that go to their source, like dino scales, they go straight to the dino lab.
