A Humble Request, to help a friend with horrible eyesight.

So friends, someone who has been a supporter of this site, and more importantly my friend for what seems like years (I recall we may have went to high school together), has asked that I request you folks to assist her in what is one of her life goals.  Her eyesight isn't so well, and a local vision place has offered on Facebook FREE LASIK…  Well I'm saying that this person is very deserving of the simple act of clicking like on her photo, that is all you have to do. 

I believe whenever it's possible to do something nice, and it is simple, it should be done.  So please click the below photo, and click like on it. 

Click me, Change someone's Life, Be Awesome.

Click me, Change someone's Life, Be Awesome.

 

Thank you for your time.

Funfact, if not for the person I speak of above, the site would have closed in mid 2010.  Just saying. 


Finding Your Happy, A suggestion to make the game more entertaining.

People like glooming and dooming so much about Farmville.  Too many Quests, not enough coins, not enough coin items, too many cash items, not enough turtals, etc etc.. Someone in a comment on the site the other day seemed awful excited about the hope of a new farm, and just in general weren't enraged by Farmville and actually find it fun.  The end of their comment said something about "Let's Go Farming" or some such, and Frankly that sounds just about as good as anything else. 

Farmville=Game, Game=Fun, Notfun=NotGame,

So If having to do X to get Y is making you unhappy, Find your Happy, Do what you like.  If Quests are what make you enjoy the game, You so are currently likely happy.  Quests out the wazoo.  If you dig crazy trees, well guess what boom like 30+ level one trees a month easily.  Dig the Blooms, well buckle up darlin, they are gonna keep happening.  But if your Happy is the Turtals, well Zynga hates the Turtal, (They keep taunting me with the Slider…)

If every thing Farmville is FORCING you to do stuff you dont wanna do. (note, they are not forcing you to build Master Lu's Study, or the Unicorn Island, or the Dog House, or the Dino Lab..)

DONT DO IT.  If you long for the days when it was just about planting crops, shaking the trees, and milking the animals.  DO THAT!  You can go all sorts of Basic Farmer on it.  Ignore the Quest Icons, Ignore the Building Prompts!  Just PPH All day every day!

Anyway, as we reach the 2/3rds way done of the year, and come into our Fourth Winter Holiday Season on the Farmville, Plus I've realized that its been right at 3 years that I've been telling folks about Farmville doings.  With the Site 3nd Birthday being in Jan of 2013.  I really enjoy bringing you folks the news, and tips and just helping make this simple but complex game more entertaining.

So Find what makes you enjoy the game, and do it.

And if what you like about the game is the time when you don't have it loaded.  Maybe You know what that means. 


People Keep asking, so…

For some reason I will never understand people want to friend/neighbor me.  So Here is your chance, Leave a comment on the site post with a link to your facebook.  I will send you a friend request*  Note if I can't friend request you, then I can't.  Also not everyone who wants me as a friend can Have it.  

Note: I do not click to take your Trees/foals/whatever you share.  Nor Do I click Like. 
Nor am I a good neighbor, I mostly am awful.  I never answer requests, and my Facebook name is Not Bob.  So if you friended a Bob thinking it was me, You didn't get the right fellow.

Also The Duck for the Win.


Words about what’s coming to the site.

So I am currently Crafting posts, I think by about 1:40 I will have like 19 posts wrote and set to publish when they need to be posted. 
Plus Wednesday is going to be a fairly busy day on the site, Quest guides and all that jazz. 
Then Thursday I have some contest winners to announce, from that one contest that legit had like 6 people playing.  Must have been too hard. 
Friday/Saturday should see a handful of requested posts

 

If you still are a fan, thanks.
If you click like on stuff, Big thanks. 
If you Comment and click like, Huge Thanks. 
If you go to the site often, like and share and comment, Massive Thanks to you. 
If you complain all the time, well Bless your heart.
If you are concerned of the site well being or my own well being, there happens to be a paypal button on the right.


Always Look UNDER your Farm

So I was getting ready to do something, and I happened to see under my farm this huge banner.

PS Don't try clicking the above ad, it won't take you to free Farmcash Land.  It won't take you anywhere actually.

PS Don't try clicking the above ad, it won't take you to free Farmcash Land. It won't take you anywhere actually.

 

And I kept clicking it, and it kept popping up stuff to watch and get farmcash for. Of course this is very your results may vary.  Also I got a free Foamy Hair Colory Sample thing, of which I'm not sure I need.

Overall I gained 19 free cash!


Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls.

 

So I get these questions semi often, so I'm gonna cover this one last time.

The Floating Waterfall, is mostly just a deco.  Yes I realize it harvests for something.  But as you know it harvests for Sparkle Seeds, Aka one of the parts of the Floating Waterfall. 

AKA They want you to keep building floating waterfalls until your farm is full.

AKA  Sparkle Seeds are a Waste of Time.  The Waterfall itself while neat looking, doesn't serve a real purpose.  Could they later change it so it harvests for something else?  Sure!  Will they?  Eh likely not… 

My Opinion, it's not worth the effort to build for what it does.  If you like floating stuff, then build as many as you want :D


A Funny Share worthy pair of emails.

So Magdalena Medina-Artica, has sent me a couple of emails.  I figured they were share worthy.

If you sometimes wonder why you may ask me a legit question via email and I don't get back to you, this is why, I'm busy dealing with these sorts of winners.

 

YOU KNOW…..I HAVE BEEN SLAVING ON THE ADDS THST YOU POSTED TO ACCUMULATE MONEY AND GET MORE SPACE ON THE JADE AND IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE YOU GUYS TOOK FROM ME 30 FV MONEY…..WHY?. I CALL THAT STEALING AND YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO DO IT….THE OTHERS ARE GOING TO KNOW ABOUT THIS TOO. AND SINCE I'M HERE I'M GOING TO COMPLAINT ABOUT THE FEEDS…I HAVE A BUNCH OF PEOPLE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES PISSED AT ME BECAUSE I DON'T HELP THEM AND THE REASON IS YOU DON'T GIVE ENOUGH TIME AND ALSO DON'T CONSIDER THE TIME DIFFERENCE. YESTERDAY A FV FRIEND FROM SPAIN SENT A REQUEST 8 SECONDS AND WHEN I PRESSED THE BUTTON IT WAS ALREADY EXPIRED. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT PEOPLE WHO PLAY THIS GAME DON'T NEED THIS KIND OF HASSLE AND ALSO …..GIVE ME BACK MY MONEY

Now I didn't answer her first message because, It gave me a headache, and I decided it had to be someone who would catch on, that ooh a news website isn't who I should complain to. 

So She sent me another email.

YOU GUYS NOT EVEN HAD THE COURTESY TO ANSWER ME ABOUT WHY YOU TOOK 30 FV MONEY I EARNED LEGALLY THROUGH THE ADDS THAT "YOU POST"…..IF YOU ARE DOING THE SAME TO OTHERS YOU GUYS ARE NOT HONEST

Now what's neat I can see what she searched on the site before clicking the contact button, it was "Jade Chapter 11" which suggests she is not a dipstick.  But it also suggests she may be trolling me.  I really hope she is trolling me, because otherwise it saddens me to think people are out there like this.

I decided if she was gonna keep banging on the door I'd answer her.

1) Quit typing in all caps.  Its super annoying.
2) I don't post any ads to give you farm cash.  My name is Bob and I
run a news Site about farmville, I can't TAKE YOUR FV MONEY.
3) Your beef is with zynga, not me, I'm a college student.
4) I am going to post your emails on my site.

 

I fully expect she is gonna email me back complaining, maybe it will be because I made her feel foolish.  And maybe that is a good thing. 


So Let’s talk about the outlook of the site. spoiler alert: It’s fairly poor.

So It's came to my attention some people do not realize
that new posts ARE BELOW THIS. 
This will stay sticky'ed for a bit.  So scroll down.

I had typed a post up with a bunch of graphs and technological gibberish.

But I deleted all that and will say this.

Show Love to the site, FOR FREE by Commenting on Posts, Commenting on Fan Page Posts, Sharing Posts, and Liking the posts on the Fanpage.

I don't mean just once in a while do those things, but semi often.  If you want you can do it everytime.

An unloved site goes away.  Its as simple as this.

Want to keep getting info?
Are you at least semi Fond of your friendly guide Bob?

All you have to do is the above.

Hate Bob, then just keep looking at the content without interacting, and before long there will not be a site.

The more love for the Site, the more things I can do for folks, aka More info, contests, etc. 

If the site is gone, no more info, no more contests, no more bumblebee photos. 

Simple as that.
