Question--isn't 'switch and bait' still illegal in the US?

yep good luck with your cause, dont see stubborn zynga changing the way they try to make money...but you never know I guess.

@Tonya, ya i dont think i've ever even glanced at the FB terms and conditions, but zynga is a very shady company..and yes there should be some kind of FB violations they have broken...Also, yes they do a very communistic job at policing the forums...its horrible, anytime you ask people to not do this in protest or stop buying horseshoes for that until they fix such and such iit gets deleted...it got to the point where i couldnt even voice anything so i stopped going. A few women on power trips control those forums, and they remind me of how people run things in China or North Korea lol.

Thanks for the replies people ^_^

I don't depend on these boosts, I just find them handy to have, now that we have lost them I feel that I have lost a very useful tool. I hope that zynga fix this soon.

BTW, I have over 2100 joining the cause so far.

@Brad, exactly. So basically it breaks FB terms and conditions, right? You would think everyone could get together some how and do something. Funny thing is there was a ton of posts in the forum about it but when  looked this morning I couldn't even find the thread. Can you imagine how swamped CS is about this? I kind of feel sorry for them since they are not the ones that are responsible for the lame choices Zynga makes!

kinda lame u have to vote just to get it fixed so they arent misleading people anymore...should be changed before they took it away...

Before you vote, Notice that the fix is only to change the text, not to give them back..

Well bear statutes are officially paper weights..R.I.P Animal Ready Boosts 6-9-2010 to 6-9-2011 Your memories of helping me to get to level 150 shall not be forgotten.

When I read the fix it vote it is missleading, are we voting to fix the fact that the collections doesn't tell us that we get cow boosts for one cow instead of an animal boost for everything on your homesead or for the change?

I find this notice contradictory for the actions Zynga has taken today. People have been reporting since last evening of their 'animal ready" missing from inventory boxes. This memo came out at 21:19 pm 06/09/11 explaining the change and then allowing to vote to fix. Soo--I voted to fix. Maybe we all should several times! Or maybe a hundred! lol! http://support.zynga.com/cp_articleview?gameId=67&Id=kA160000000GonnCAC&lang=en_US&loc=en_US

Oh for heavens sake, I used that ALL THE TIME!!!! ok.... WAIT A MINUTE.... LET ME BEND OVER THANKS ZYNGA!!

As pointed out in the zynga forums does this not break Facebook policy? 

"Be trustworthy" and under that says "Don't mislead, confuse, defraud, or surprise users"

As the game still says we should be getting animal ready boosts and we are not they are misleading & surprising users, therefore violating facebook policy

http://developers.facebook.com/policy/

and even more interesting what about this part here, is this not what they are doing with making us send requests to non players ?

"You cannot use a user’s friend list outside of your application, even if a user consents to such use, but you can use connections between users who have both connected to your application."

Wow, nasty.  I really rely on these too, a cow ready boost is a slap in the face compared to all animals being ready.

1 boosts = 1 cow : (

from Zynga : New Rewards for the Bear Collections
Updated 06/09/2011 at 21:19
The reward for the bear collection has changed!

Turning in the bear collection now rewards a cow ready boost and clothing! Use them to moooooove up your cows' growth rate!

We are aware that the in game text for this collection has not yet been updated, and apologize for any confusion over what the correct reward for turning in this collection should be.

Happy homesteading!

OUCH! I really depend on those Frown
