    Stolen tools

    Hi. I am very tired of trying to trade or transfer upgrade tools only to have a fellow farmer unknowingly stealing them. I have probably done unknowingly myself. I apologize if i have. I am again pleading with supercell to add a trade/transfer box to our shops. It would save so much frustration.

    The coding involved in making sure that that last box is only purchased by ONE specific player.... I am not even sure that it can be done.

    I have lost items during trades, which is why I simply don't do it anymore.

    But I am sorry, if it is in your shop and someone gives you the coins you asked for, they are simply lucky to have found such a great deal.

    I’m sure that there are many players who have never heard of this. It is not part of the game, just something that has been discussed on the forum.

    The odds are overwhelming that your things were bought by one of the millions of farmers who have never visited the forums. As Connemara says, the use of the far right crates for neighbor/friend trades is not a universal thing. It undoubtedly started here in the forums before there were neighborhoods. Once the neighborhood feature was introduced, "the last crate" would have spread through the NH chat to much of the game through farmers in multiple-player NHs. However, there will always be farmers who have not been farming long enough to know about the "rule", and there will always be some who will buy it regardless, particularly if you've accidentally put an ad on it. (Big improvement since "no ad" has become the default RSS setting.)

    Change your farm name to "LAST BOX RESERVED!" It will still be stolen, at least you know it's deliberate.

    There are countless players who don't speak English. Farm names aren't translated by the game...

    Hi!

    I totally understand your frustration. I always make sure my team member/farmer is on HD and ask them to come to my roadside shop(RSS)in the chat house. I put one wheat for a penny in top right corner or bottom right corner, when they send me a message that they are waiting at the RSS. Once they buy the penny wheat, I put the actual item in same slot/bin for them to buy. Sometimes, someone gets it before they do, but I think that it is not on purpose usually. I hope you have better luck in the future. The addition of the chat feature has really helped keep this from happening to me. It happened more before we had the chat house feature.

    Actually there's a bot "stealing" tools it's not someone "buying" them!! Imagine every time u posted tools to help a fellow neighbour there bought within 5 seconds not every now an again everytime!! This is something that needs to be fixed!! Same name everytime but not posted cause of forum rules...
