Light-bulbTop posters of the week ( Feb 18th) Congrats for getting 200 GU! coins!

Please_share
by Amy Wong - Feb 18, 2011 Star_s2,707 views

It's Friday and it's time to announce the top posters of the week again :) It's been almost 2 months since we started this and we are still fine tuning the selection process. One thing that is going to change from this week is that we said we were okay with people reposting contents from other blogs on our site (but please use your own judgement and follow the fair use guidelines), but we decided that it probably shouldn't be awarded the top poster of the week if it's an EXACT copy of the original even if it credits the source. But if it's rewritten in your own words or if you just use excerpts from the original with your own comments or tips added, that's of course, considered eligible. In other words, you gots to have soul on the post people!!

So here are the posts that we thought had soul!! :D

Barbara D'Angelo - Boxes of chocolate from non neighbors only!

Barbara is our dear moderator but since she's not on the selection team, we thought she deserves to win for this post as it had one of the most views and likes. A perfect post that showed lots of souls (angry souls rather lol) from many people!!

Teresa Donald - Find the PINK STALLION

Teresa keeps hitting the homerun! In fact, 5 of her posts were all on the top 20 list from the last 2 weeks! Among all, this post had one of the most views and likes and really represents what we are looking for. She shows excerpts from another blog (with credit) but she also shares which balloons got her and her friends the pink stallion. This really made the thread fun as people commented on which balloon worked for them. Teresa, you are really our super star!

Jerome Romeo - FREE CASH FOR ESPNU (15 Campus Cash per link) LIKE and SHARE if you want more

We love seeing tips on games other than Farmville and Frontierville! :D Looks like it's been patched but Clinton posted some awesome comments so still worth checking it out!

Tonya Jones Collins Frontierville Kissing Tree Missions

Tonya shared what she discovered about the new mission and shared with the members. Of course there were other blogs who had this info but we liked it that she wrote it in her own words and updated it with new info. Thanks Tonya for helping others with your helpful answers too!

Clinton StothardSocial City Unlock 8th District

Another superstar, Clinton had 6 of his posts all on the top 20 list! How can he not deserve the award? :D 

There were also so many people who helped others by giving great tips in their replies, we wish we could award more people but here are the two that caught my attention!

Joanne Epperson Deist's answer to this very popular question "insane bonus bar" was voted the most helpful!

Also, here's a reply that was helpful to me personally. Aram Azadsuggested that we add crew help on the Cityville link exchange that should work between non-friends. Thank you Aram for your suggestion!

We understand that not many people are writers and  feel intimidated about writing posts. So we are planning to have something that will encourage many people to participate for a chance to win GU! coins. As a start, we are going to have a thread asking you a question and the best answer wins type of contest. So stay tuned!

@Joanne, sorry to hear that. I'm a little confused about what you've written here though. Let's clarify

  1. you said you earned 2200 GU! coins
  2. our record shows you redeemed 2000 GU! coins to 200 Facebook Credits on 2/14
  3. at this point you should have 200 GU! coins (2200 - 2000 = 200) and 200 Facebook Credits
  4. you tried to buy horseshoes but cancelled it
  5. now this is the part I'm confused. You said "Next day horseshoes went on sale so I went to do the transaction only to have a balance of 200 coins and no additional horsehoes." This sounds correct because looking at 3. above, you should have 200 GU! coins only because you redeemeed 2000 GU! coins to 200 Facebook credits.

Unless, you are saying that the 200 Facebook credits are missing, which I thought you meant, but looking at your message again, it seems like you are confused about GU!'s coins balance and FB credits balance? Can you double check your Facebook credits balance again?

As I suspected would be the case, Zynga completely passed the buck... again! They tell me I have to contact Facebook, Facebook tells me I have to contact Zynga. You tell me I have to contact Zynga. Apparently they don't care.

Thank you Amy. I have emailed them and am waiting for their reply. Hopefully their customer service will be as good as yours!

I guess you have got to have soul cause whats so interesting in copying what others have been saying on the posts ! I think you gotta break free from the crowd and do your own creative works in terms of writing of what you are tryin to say in the forums ! And to be honest Im just here for free horseshoes that I can click to add would be a real nice feature that should happen instead of having to pay for every single thing ! I think a reward program for frontierville would be an awesome feature ! Even if you have to complete frontierville tasks to do it ! Thats just my thoughts on how people should get rewarded because as they say Nothin in Life is Free !

Congratulations

@Joanne, we just responded to your email and like we stated in the email, our records show that you redeemed GU! coins to 200 FB credits successfully on 2/14. Once you convert to Facebook credits it's out of our hands now. You need to contact Zynga, or Facebook and ask them what their records show and to have it corrected on their end.

Joanne Epperson Deist - 11 hours ago
Earned 2,200 coins and wanted trade for facebook credits to buy Frontierville horseshoes. I was 34 cents short so I cancelled the transaction to wait for a 20 percent off horseshoes. Didn't get horseshoes and credits were still there. Next day horseshoes went on sale so I went to do the transaction only to have a balance of 200 coins and no additional horsehoes. Would sure like my coins and/or credits restored. Emailed Gamer's Unite only to receive an auto response that they don't provide technical support. < here you said u still had the 200 coins.

If you had them transfered to facebook credits and you had them.
Then they disapeared then its not gamers unite you should be complaining to.
It should be facebook your questions are pointed towards.

Right Clinton - I had 2,200 coins and cashed them in for 200 coins to purchase Horseshoes on Frontierville, but they've disappeared into never never land (a.k.a., cyber space) and there's no one at Gamer's Unite who is either willing or able to help. So I will be very wary in the future. I shop A LOT online and could have had a lot more coins, but didn't enable it at first.

Thank you for the 200 GU! coins, Amy, I was very surprised to see the extra coins. :)

G.U coins transfer to facebook credits at 10% so if you have 1000 coins u get 100facebook credits it does mention this on the transfer 200 coins = 20 facebook credits.

I MIGHT HAVE TO START SHOPPING ONLINE LOL

Oops that should have been 2,000 coins and I do a lot of shopping online and when you shop online you earn coins too.

how in the hell did u get 20,000 G,U coins to trnsfer to 2,000 facebook credits in the first place.

@Clinton, yup that's exactly right, we encourage people to write in their own words. Basically the same rules apply when you write your term papers! :D

@Christine, yes, we noticed some people were just coping and pasting other blogs and trying to win coins which ruined the spirit of this contest. It's still okay to repost other blogs on our site as long as it credits the source (but again please use your own judgement and follow the fair use guidelines), but we won't consider those to be eligible for earning GU! coins.

I dont believe direct copies should be awarded post of the weeks. 

BUT!!! - If a person was to do there own version Re-Writen in there own words but still giving Credit to the initial source of there infomation......  Then maybe they do deserve the award as it would then be there own creativity put into Re-Writing it.

Thank you so much GU :)  I have so much fun finding and sharing any tips that will, hopefully, help other farmers.  I do love this site :D
