    I agree Jenheifer!

    if SC wishes to keep the chat feature in this sort of vein, I think we should be able to visit neighbourhoods without restrictions. It would have the added benefit of getting to know new neighbours and possibly forming strong alliances with other farmers to meet global goals if that's your thing. It would also broaden your social horizons other than your already beloved neighbours and quite simply, make a really nice add to the game.

    Failing that, a simple message feature between farmers would please most

    Currently as it stands, the feature just seems too ambitious and doesn't quite hit the mark

    While I am not a member of the soirée thread, I do stop by and read it often. It's clever, entertaining & gives me a chuckle. I was going to post on the other neighborhood thread, but I'm posting here just to add my agreement on the cliquish tendencies I fear might be lurking in the shadows.

    This is how I thought the chat feature would work. I had envisioned something similar to chat rooms that players could drop in & out of discretely or not so discretely. I figured that we could also create private chat rooms, if we desired. Never-the-less, I thought it would foster & encourage communication among players instead of ostracizing some players.

    I'm really trying to reserve judgement on it all until I see it in action, but it's quite difficult to wait! LOL

    Sue, I think the chat thing is nothing like what anyone envisioned. I'm with you on trying to reserve judgement until more is known, but the more I learn about it from others who have taken the leap already, I'm afraid it's going to be a real quagmire. Maybe after the initial newness wears off, things will sort themselves out or maybe SC will need to tweak something, but as it stands now, unfortunately I'm looking toward the "not my favorite change to HD" camp.

    I jumped and got it fast....I'm on the fence. When I envisioned it, I imagined being able to pop on chat to thank my gc friend for filling a crate and chatting "thanks for the help...pop on over to my stand for a treat". Or noticing a gc friend needed 3 fish to send off her boat but she already used her 3 helps...so I could chat to her telling her I just put up fish for her. Things like that.

    But now it seems like a mess of trying to get in one, not wanting people to get hurt, having the 20 limit is hard! It's like a potential for a bunch of little mini cliques. I may be way off...and once it settles down it'll be great, but definitely not what I had imagined!

    You haven't crashed anything! The title was intended to get the attention of the others who have contributed to the party thread, but it's certainly not exclusive by any means! We welcome all and appreciate any opinions and info you have to share.

    If you'll forgive me for saying so, but it's the sort of reaction you just had which causes me such concern about these NHs. You contributed good solid info which was helpful, yet suddenly felt that you were no longer welcome. Far from it! In fact, allow me to extend an invite right now to the Valentine's Day Soirée at my place this Friday! If you wish to know the backstory, check out this thread...

    http://forum.supercell.net/showthrea...wn-on-the-farm

    Also check out Jude's threads which canbe found in the off topic section. They keep a running story line of the zaniness that goes on at her Retreat and Farmstay! If you're so inclined and do decide to attend, if you don't already have a date, Im sure any one of the Down on the Farm matchmakers can fix you right up!

    I know... I think I see the good use of having invite only. Not to be snooty about "only so and so can get in" but so that your one and only neighborhood of 20 people doesn't turn into a drop in, raid, drop out!

    I think they'll end up tweaking it, hopefully. It doesn't make sense to me to form a neighborhood with the friends/neighbors that we already have just to chat in another venue. Like you said-- we have the forum; we have KIK. I'm not sure how this chat will be any different.

    However, it would be nice if I could IM a follower, or a friend from the game not on the forum, and say, "Hey, I noticed your farm's not expanded. Come back to my RSS & I'll put up all my extra LEM's for you." I had hoped for that type of interaction.
