    if you mean the farm name i think most people just forget what their farm name is and that they put a help up. as far as the new mark. it is a bug and a problem with Supersell so no reason to blame the victims.

    Maybe it's a bug, but I dont think that's what it is because when I'm browsing thru friends trying to help them, it ocassionally refreshes and people who I have helped and no longer need help disappear from the list, but the ones I'm talkin about remain on the list and NEVER leave. I dont know

    Something to consider.....

    How fast does the server get notification that help has been received?

    How fast does the server respond to disable the help notification?

    When farming with friends (before the current release), we would flag trees and bushes for assistance and notice the significant delay between the time they were flagged until the time others were able to see the flag.

    There was also a delay between the time the trees/bushes were assisted and the time in which the farmer registered the assist on their farm.

    The servers are not optimal. Considering the number of players of this game, it could be hellaciously worse.

    You may end up deleting your entire pool of neighbors.

    Its true and I agree about the time it takes the server to do what it has to do, but I've actually gone to a few of the farms in question and clicked behind the house and guess what... Dead fruit bush. I even got a few snapshots of this.

    Crafty definately..

    But will it get them help faster ??
    Hmm have to think about that. I have some friends who always seem to be on the ! tab without them needing help most of the time. When you visit a farm and they have the ! next to the pic in the middle of the screen they need help most of the time. Okay someone may have beaten you to the thing they need help with. If that isn't there they don't help.

    I know by now who do have the ! all the time and I just skip some of the farms and check them less often so by the time they do need help I might not check at all.

    Thank you! ClashOfHolmes for an awesome sig!

    Just call me K, my name is too difficult to spell.

    I do the exact same thing so if someone has hidden a bush to get perma-flagged for help then it is definitely going to work against them.

    Say no to sugar/dairy boats!! Don't fill em, don't open any crates, just turn the water cannon on them and wait for the next one!

    I see this too with some farms.

    They appear in de !-tab, but when you visit their farm the don't have a ! next to their avatar. My two cents: they needed help but before someone helped them they logged out the game completely and haven't logged in since ...

    Ooh I didn't know that! Some of mine have it permanently too.....I'm gonna try clicking the house! I think if you haven't logged in aft asking for help it still flags up?
