Light-bulbDeleting friends because of cheating

Please_share
by Christina Lee Adkins - May 29, 2011 Star_s5,650 views

I was recently called nasty names and was threatened to be deleted, (eventually was) by a farmville neighbor. Although this person had many, many, many secrets of her own, (fan cow gifting, belted cow leveling, individual foal gifting, just to name a few cheats) she got upset when I passed her level. My daughter called her a hypocrite and then the fued was on. I didn't have a chance to delete her first, but it was just as well. Farmville is a great game. I play it everyday. I don't like threats over a game. If you need alittle help, that's fine with me, just always remember to have fun, share with your neighbors and always help out. Thanks and Happy farming.     : )

I've solved the prob lol if others players are ahead of you don't share on the wall and keep records of when a neighbor helps you.if they help help them equally.for me i have over 360 neighbors and not a one of them sent me items when i'd request and if they did it was 2 months past the quest expiring.so what i did to resolve this since farmville techs are no help and it cost that ridiculous 10 a month for support i opened a secondary fb acct to send myself the items.

I have been playing farm-ville for a while now and originally started on dial-up. I was never able to get any items since it took too long for my page to connect. I now have satellite and am limited via bandwidth. I also share a computer with 2 other people who also play Farm-ville.Therefore I do not have hours upon hours to wait for the items I need since the other people in this house also like to play.Even on satellite it's not like I am able to get every item posted by using the snag-bar. I change my settings to what is needed and use my snag-bar accordingly. If everyone who thinks this is cheating, maybe you should try to claim something while your connected on dial-up or even satellite. I share as much as I can and post more items now since I am actually able to complete an orchard, or raise a lamb. This is a social network for people to enjoy and if you feel that this is cheating maybe you should look at some of the items you claim. If you have no problem claiming an item from me or any other gamers unite member who may or may not be using the snag-bar, then maybe you should reconsider your hypocritical ways.

You know this is crazy, I'm not playing against anyone but rather playing with you to help your game . This is not a competition , it's a game for everyone to enjoy. Theres no way I could catch up to some. But I like helping them to advance even futher. I'm glad my neighbors are really nice and very helpful . If you have a problem then share what a bad neighbor he or she is and I bet they will straighten up.

It is a game, a "Free" , online social community game.

I have noticed that some people take too much pride over their farms and have sadly used this game as an excuse to feel like something special to others in hopes of filling an obvious void in their reality, I am sorry to those people that can't move beyond that, but please do not push your insecurities on the rest of us that are able to enjoy this game with which ever methods we choose as acceptable, whether it be paying $100.00 a week for Farmville cash or using the Snag Bar to monitor our personal feeds.

I have personally found the SB to be more liberating, allowing me to concentrate more of my time helping others and spending less time looking for someone to share a potion.

To end this rant, I would like to make this comment: It is an implied respect to :like: a posting from which you have taken an item from. However, I DON'T CARE IF YOU EVER LIKE MY POSTS as long as you continue to play the game and share your own postings. Personally, I feel the constant 100's of like notifications annoying. I have found others in these forums that also use this as an excuse to label and harass other players as being cheaters when they "ghost" items, Again to those of you that can't live with the constant attention, do not impose your problems onto others.

To quote a very old saying, "All is fair in love and War" If you have a problem with me having the better technology and being more advanced then you, you better either delete me or prepare to become a new 3rd world country. (I use GU for empires and allies but same concept applies." If using technology is a crime, arrested every single person with a cellphone. I dont know if zygna considers using the snagbar to be cheating, but to quote my old coach, "If your not cheating, your not trying. . .Do whatever it takes to be the best"

I also was contacted by 3 friends that i've been playing with for 6 months. One had even told me that i was her best neighbor, always sending anything she asked for etc...and that was before i found Gamers Unite..LOL....
I love the snag bar. I'm on Satelite, and I have a daily bandwidth allowance. With the facebook/zynga games being such slow loaders, at times i use 10% of my daily allowance in 10 minutes.
I find Cityville to use the least bandwith and causes me the least trouble.
I play 3 games daily, Farmville, Cityville and Frontierville.
Since i've found the snag bar, and the 1 click option, I have much more time to visit neighbors, help them out etc. I really resent it when people tell me i'm cheating.
I don't snag daily, i snag about 1 or 2 hours per week, but i use the 1 click gifts daily sometimes more than once a day. It frees up so much time and bandwidth. If i sat in the feeds and refreshed every page after visiting one neighbor, i'd use up all my daily bandwidth in less than 1/2 hour.
This way i hardly use any of it using the 1 click feature, and i can visit so many more neighbors and help out... So if any dummy thinks i'm cheating, feel free to delte me, as I'd rather deal with appreciative neighbors who appreciate the fact that i'm using my allowed bandwidth to the best ability.

If you will cheat at a game? Are u really winning with Honor? To me a cheat is as bad as a liar...and I was a marine

Picture?type=square

what about the fact that the facebook posts arent always in sync... on my feeds i dont get a post from another friend until after minutes have passed and by the time i actually can click a link they're already gone.......fuck em if they dont like the snag bar.

I've deleted MANY people who stated I was "cheating"...true, its not "cheating" when EVERYONE can have the snag bar..but I don't have 24 hrs. to sit and collect each indiviual item..I completely do not agree thats it "cheating"..I just consider it the smart thing to do..I don't care if someone deletes me, there are thousands to replace them!!

Picture?type=square

I don t understand why do you care if somebody deleted you , there are plenty of players :)

I soooo agree with you on this. I have a almost two year old little boy and go to college full time so that consumes my time up everyday. So I use the snag bar to be able to get things I cant otherwise. I have a life outside of farmville and thats my son. These people who think that we are cheaters because we use this obviously spend waayyy to much time playing this game. I have had numerous people message me and tell me that I am on my way to be deleted becasue i use this snag bar. Its like really? You take THAT much time to figure out who in your group of friends use this or not.. Another example i had someone tell me that i was going to get deleted if i didnt delete one of MY friends who were using the snag bar. Its freaking crazy how people get soooo worked up over this. I clearly dont understand any of it

I am in the trucking business and the only internet access I have is mobile broadband. I have a monthly limit and depending on how much I use the connection for business I am limited on the amount of time I can play Farmville since they put a cap on the amount of monthly usage and the overage is outrageous. So for the cry babies who have unlimited access to the site and can play their game 24 hours a day cry me a river. The 1click gifts doesn't work anymore. Farmville has added so many additional items that it cuts the time I can actually attempt to play down to less than half. So it seems that the cheaters are the ones who are crying because they somehow feel there is an advantage to using the snag bar instead of using the feed are just whiny butts who want to make sure they win. Don't worry about what I do or don't do. Hate me if you want but when Facebook and Zynga get their act together and stop gauging people with only mobile broadband access than I am just not real inclined to feel bad that you can sit on the computer 24 hours a day if you want and I am lucky if I get the game loaded 3 times a month and not run out or access time at the end of the month. Because of this I lose crops, gifts and quests I am working on so believe me I have no advantage if I am able to collect 10 to 50 items from the snag bar that don't even show up in my gift box half the time because the program errors or times out because of my connection. Get a life - it is a freaking game and I have as much right to TRY to relax as you do. I just am finding it less and less relaxing to listen to you continuing whining.

I agree with so many of you. I have 2 kids and a small window of time to work my farm. I would waste so much time with the other bonus checkers out there, and very little time to help my friends. So if you have a problem with me helping you then GOOD LUCK !!!

How do they figure that the snag bar is cheating, anyone can have it and it is free, idiots can use it also if they choose!

Picture?type=square

Why do people complain it is helping them out because most of the time it sends them stuff!!

I have been playing games now since the day of the XT and Commadore 64 and I have many thoughts on this subject...

In those days we didn't have the convenience of the Internet, at least not in South Africa. I didn't even have access to a BBS in order to download little text files of cheat codes and secrets.

We had to gain advantage over games by editing the program code. That was more fun than playing the games. Did I enjoy games less... NO!!!

I saw it as a time saving chore. Sure I could play the same game over and over, going through the same stage a 1000 times just to advance to stage 2... or I could edit the program code, give myself 100 lives and play the game without it getting boring.

Then they started building cheat codes into games. That didn't make games boring. It kept them exciting. Super man could fight against archers in feudal Japan or sling cows at your enemy, or drive a rally race on a sheep. Was that boring... NO!!!

I love finding those little exploits that makes a game less time consuming. Do I cheat??? NO!!!!

I have another life. I work. I have children. I have a wife. I don't have time to sit and play games for hours. Why should I enjoy it any less than that guy/girl that has the time to sit for 5 hours a day playing games. On games like Farmville time is even more of a factor. I don't have time to sit and click away for hours trying to level. Why should my game suffer? I use these TIME SAVING PROGRAMS to keep the game fun and interesting. I would not be playing without them.

I am not cheating. I see it as a clever choice to enjoy games I would not otherwise have time for.

Keep the tricks coming and allow us the luxury to exploit the odd glitch. The fun in knowing that you managed to beat the programmers of the game, even if only for a short while is as fun, NO, more fun than just playing the game.

it's a catch 22 situation. In my mind the GU Bar is NOT cheating because I can, using Firefox, write my own macro in a matter of mere moments to do the exact same thing that it does. Simply seeks out the items and collects a preset amount of what we need to proceed. I have neighbors who are level 300+....what's the difference between using the snag bar to help get what you need and using cold hard cash and buying items to advance yourself? NONE in fact buying the items to advance seems to me more of a cheat than the snag bar. LOL Just another case of rich taking advantage of the poor who have found a way to collect what they need to advance without having to PAY for it and they are pissed cause they spend there real $$$$ for stuff like ding-bats. LOL

I like usign the snag bar evey once in a while but not everyday because you get to much stuff in your gift box. I have lost many people ove this site and I tell them I am a mom of 2 boys. One is trouble on 2 wheels and a teenager and the other is a laid back creative 11 yro who gets bored real easy. LOL I myself am disabled and get bored easy so I jump from one thing to next alot. I do chores fix meals help them with their homework do family activites and have a life outside of FV so I miss a few things and just want the chance to get it while I am out doing something. I cant leave it on 24/7 because then it just over loads your games with stuff like in Frontierville you cant get rid of. Now I wished they would add Treasure Isle to the snag bar so I can get caught up with that game.

I have lost numerous neighbors and I could careless if they think I'm a cheater. I play fair and only do the obvious things. Look for good exp. crops to harvest. I save up my gold to buy saddleback pigs to get 3000 exp. I try to keep numerous foals on my country side to get that little bit of gold. I understand the orchard money idea and the stables. But, I don't have the time to do those things and I don't really wanna check for a percentage all day. In my opinion the cheaters are the ones that add ppl and don't actually share with the ppl they add. They only share with a small little group of ppl and they always take your gifts from your posts. But, they never share with you. They don't respond to your messages and they only contact you if they want something. They only share through copying shortcut's and pasting them in messages so others can't get anything from them. You can find great neighbors that help out and also say thank you for the items you share but of course theres always a bad seed in the group who thinks everything is cheating. If using a snag bar is cheating, then is clicking on items on your wall cheating also, people who claim the snag bar is cheating better think about that?

I am very new (4 mos) to all this Facebook games & stuff, my son says the term is "Newbie", but I have found that the snag bar is really a tool, like the "hammer" mentioned by Juliana in her post. I have a friend who is VERY shy and so does not have a lot of friends in real life and no one to be FB friends with, but she wanted to play these FB games. So my son set me up with a FB account and he & I, along with his 'Sweet' girl friend have become her FB friends. Anyway, I therefore use the snag bar to save me time/energy and call her to let her know when I am playing, then she uses it to compensate for only have 3 friends. Because as I have found you can't do a whole lot of anything without friends. So my point is this...How can it be considered "cheating" if you can do the same thing manually? I mean really, I can cook over an open camp fire too, but using the oven is really a faster and more convenient way to get the job done!
