Question & Answers

Coins received from people w update

People without the update, at least those on a Kindle are not receiving the appropriate items. All items are varieties of coins. I've checked this with NachoMary to verify.

Brian, May 5, 2014, 18:00 PM

Answer from: Brian
Update... I believe that both elements and collection items are turning into coins...

Posted: May 5, 2014, 18:06 PM

Answer from: NachoMary
So far, I have received coins from Buffy, Gigi & Chris/Mmmeee. I have no collection items on my wishlist right now - only combining elements. But whatever element each was trying to send me, it was turned into a coin in transit.

Ay yi yi, I wonder how long it will be before the Kindle users get an update. We didn't get the Valentine's Day update until well AFTER the day had come & gone.

Answer from: PatL
I'm removing all collection items for my wl right now! Yikes, I hope nobody sent me anything painfully expensive!

Posted: May 5, 2014, 18:27 PM

Answer from: JJJ
I've just added a collection item to my wl because I've been receiving my wl elements from friends, no coins received yet. I'm wondering if coins are sent for collection items only not for elements. Brian, can you send me the gold crown?

Posted: May 5, 2014, 18:28 PM

Answer from: Rosey
I have also received an unusual amount of coins in the last hour or so. I received coins and books from grandmaZen, and coins from ren, Amanda, Pickles, and I think JJJ. It makes me wonder if my friends are receiving the gifts I sent or something else?! rosey

Posted: May 5, 2014, 18:29 PM

Answer from: PatL
I have been receiving the elements OK, at least I think I have. I have two mad hatter hats and that big red light bulb in my incoming gifts. I was just going to try to arrange an experiment but I see JJJ is already on it.

Posted: May 5, 2014, 18:31 PM

Answer from: Rosey
JJJ I just sent you a crown. (I had 10). Did you get it? Also I just received two more coins from JW!?

Posted: May 5, 2014, 18:32 PM

Answer from: JJJ
I have received the gold crown from Rosey and another friend and still have not received anything not on my wl

Posted: May 5, 2014, 18:35 PM

Answer from: Rosey
Good to know JJJ. I play on kindle fire HD. Is it just the kindle that is receiving all the coins?

Posted: May 5, 2014, 18:42 PM

Answer from: JJJ
No, I've read that updated players are having the problem, but I've tested with an updated player and we both got our wl items and elements sent to each other just fine. I still have not received a coin. Maybe a server at G5 isn't working correctly.

Posted: May 5, 2014, 18:45 PM

Answer from: Brian
JJJ I believe it's when updated sends to non updated.... that's where the issue seems to occur. Non updated to updated is okay (I think)

Answer from: Bcgirl231
I'm on an iPad and have received several coins from Pickles, Kathie, Kate, JW, Pianosam, Teenielady - I take it they've all updated?

Posted: May 5, 2014, 18:55 PM

Answer from: Buffy
@NachoMary. I did not send you a coin. I sent you sm key and a lb. per your wish list. I have updated and am receiving my WL items so far but in duplicate, I believe. I have gifted everyone per their wish list and the collection items up to 10 people so far. The only differeces I can tell so far is FL is jumbled in a different order but all are still there. And once I visit the friend visit button turns grey.

Posted: May 5, 2014, 19:03 PM

Answer from: Mimi2
I am also on iPad and have 2 coins from friends who always gift from wl. Coins are not on my wl

Answer from: Buffy
Has anyone, that has updated, time traveled yet? If you have, has there been issues?

Posted: May 5, 2014, 19:06 PM

Answer from: Zme
@ JJJ, I sent you a cold crown, u probably got it cause I did not update as yet...

Posted: May 5, 2014, 19:08 PM

Answer from: JJJ
@Zme, yup, got the crown, thx
@Buffy, I TT back one day with no problems, the event timer went from 14 to 15 days and I was able to gift/visit ok

I have not updated and received coins from those that have updated. I may update sooner than planned :)

Answer from: IMara
Hi. I play on Kindle HD and just combination items on my WL tonight. I'm receiving coins and some combining items. Could be worse. Thanks to my friends for sending even if I'm receiving something else. Hope you don't get coins from me!

Posted: May 5, 2014, 19:50 PM

Answer from: NachoMary
Buffy, thanks for the confirmation that what you tried to send was a combining element. I was confident that was the case & that it is a pure glitch in the update that caused the coin to be sent instead.

I went through my list of friends & noted which ones have updated & which have not. The gifts from friends who have NOT updated are what I would expect - items from my wishlist. The gifts from friends who have updated have all been coins.

Posted: May 5, 2014, 20:01 PM

Answer from: Pianosam
BCgirl I have updated and never sent you a coin

Posted: May 5, 2014, 20:29 PM

Answer from: Pianosam
I have gifted all my friends...sure hope you all received what I sent

Posted: May 5, 2014, 20:31 PM

Answer from: PatL
To add a data point, I have not updated and have received coins from Smuffin, pendergast, jw , jenniferzz, michelleh, Buffy, jaspyL, and BarbaraZz. If you are one of those named, have you updated? Do you recall whether you sent a collection item or a combining element?

Posted: May 5, 2014, 20:39 PM

Answer from: Mmmeee
Hi NachoMary & Brian, I finally came up for air. I sent Mary a combining gift and Brian I sent you a combining gift and collection item. Neither were coins. Guess I won't send anything to non-updates until this glitch is fixed. I did receive 1 coin but rest of gifts received were all combining gifts as I do not have any collection items on my WL right now. Chris

Posted: May 5, 2014, 20:54 PM

Answer from: Bcgirl231
Hi, Pianosam I didn't think you'd have sent me a coin....or the others that arrived either. I am in the process of updating - taken all morning to get the iCloud downloaded and game backed up, change ID so I could get the confirmation email then app store didn't recognise me.... sigh.... anyway it's dowloading as we speak. Lots of help required from Apple to get me going again....

Nacho Mary - how do you know which friends have updated (other than the coins)?

Posted: May 5, 2014, 21:32 PM

Answer from: Ash
I received a lot and assumed it was gifts that were received before the update went into effect last night. Then through a glitch, the already received gifts, turned into coins. I've received other gifts that came through fine, so I'm assuming those were sent tonight and were not already in the gift tab before the game was tweaked.

Posted: May 5, 2014, 21:52 PM

Answer from: NachoMary
Bcgirl, the friends who have the updated version no longer have the big red heart on the left side of their table. The is a large box now where the heart used to be.

Posted: May 5, 2014, 21:52 PM

Answer from: RoyalOne
I just received a couple gifts from Pickles. They were not coins. I did download the upgrade (with great trepidation I must add) and have had no problems as of yet. However, I get nothing when I play the tavern. Twice I have received one item, the rest of the time - nothing. I haven't found any of the new quest items yet either. This might be another long fruitless quest!

Posted: May 5, 2014, 21:54 PM

Answer from: KaReN
Been away from the game for several hours and was pleased to see that my gifts finally came through. Earlier this afternoon I finally saw that 40 gifts had shown up but could never access them. Went out for a while. Came back to 61 gifts and was able to get them. When I noticed how many were coins I thought I would start a "Penny for your thoughts?" thread, but then I saw this one. All of the coins were within those last 21 somewhere, and I don't believe that section included any collectible items. I know that most, if not all, of the people I received coins from are well aware of the last gift/coin situation so it caught my attention.

For the record, I play Android and thus have not updated yet. I'm not sure who of my friends has updated, but here is the list: EmGee-2 coins, Teenielady - 1, KateC - 1, NatashaM - 1, Shen - 1, LoisH - 3, Shorty - 1, & BA - 1. I hope that adds something to the big picture.

Posted: May 5, 2014, 23:29 PM

Answer from: Lesley
I too have received a lot of coins from friends. I play on Android and have not seen an update yet.

For the time being I will only put element items on my wishlist so that you are not sending expensive collection items.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 0:34 AM

Answer from: Mojo
Agreed! I'm on an Android device & have just started receiving gifts again at 2000 (8p CDT). Only a very few from the wishlist, otherwise numerous random coins. Atypical from friends who routinely gift from the wishlist. Just confirming so players with the update activated will know. I also only have combining items up on my wishlist. Coin was also received from Buffy, Teenielady. I'm keeping track now; I clicked right through the first round, then read this thread.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 0:58 AM

Answer from: Janieloveday
Yup, I've been getting coins too, from players I know wouldn't make that mistake.

Answer from: Katydid2
I received 12 coins also and I'm not on a Kindle. I wonder if they are replacing ladybugs?? That's what I normally get.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:00 AM

Answer from: GingerSnap
You beat me to it, Brian! I was going to post the same thing. I have received roughly 20 coins in the last hour, after receiving the same set of 62 gifts three times. I'm still getting turning keys and hats though. Wish they'd hurry up and update for the Kindle!

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:00 AM

Answer from: Rosey
How do we know if we are updated Brian?

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:00 AM

Answer from: KDD63
I play on an iPad I have received two collection items and a couple combining elements. But I have received three coins from one of my friends, so I'm not sure what's going on. I'm afraid to update I've been looking and I haven't found that any of my friends have updated yet. Not sure what I want to do I might decide to wait until tomorrow and see how things go with everyone else. Good luck everyone.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:00 AM

Answer from: Brian
@Bcgirl231 All mine have been from new updaters. @JJJ If you can try to send me a winding key, I can verify that your elements are not getting through.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:00 AM

Answer from: Somecallmetim
I am on an updated ipad and have been getting coins from Mmmeee and others. I have also been getting exactly the same set of items from the same people several times.

I'm on an Android phone (htc one, no update) and only have combining elements on my wishlist. I've gotten coins from Kirkossa, Teenielady, Illia, Thekettlewitch, OneNonlyZz, and NatashaM. On a positive note, at least they're all different coins....

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:01 AM

Answer from: Mojo
I'm on an Android device, so no update. I've received coins from 12 friends (one was Buffy). I've kept track after it started happening if someone gifted my wishlist & wants to know if they're on the coin list.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:01 AM

Answer from: Kathleen
I received 15 coins along with daily gifts and no items from my wish list. Some of the people who sent coins were JJJ, Pianosam, Pickles, PKP, Kathie, and Mac. Those are the ones I know for sure are from this site and they never sent me coins before....ooops...I think G5 has a few bugs to work out.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:01 AM

Answer from: Ari
I've only gotten coins from two friends but I did wonder why they sent me coins- the exact same gold coin! Perhaps, in my case anyway, they both tried to send me the same item.

Hi. I play on Kindle HD and just combination items on my WL tonight. I'm receiving coins and some combining items. Could be worse. Thanks to my friends for sending even if I'm receiving something else. Hope you don't get coins from me!

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:01 AM

Answer from: Kathie
@BCgirl I can guarantee you I didn't send you a coin. If you haven't changed your wish list it was probably the teapot.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:01 AM

Answer from: OneMoreTim
I am receiving lots and lots of coins as well. I took all collection items off my list. Maybe all those that have updated could send ladybugs out until the problem is resolved. Hopefully they update all the other systems soon. As usual us kindle players will be waiting awhile. I have managed to visit and charge and all my friends screens look the same as mine even though I know many have updated. I was hoping they would raise the amount of collection items we could send to at least one per friend but not if it means all coins!

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:02 AM

Answer from: Somecallmetim
@Mmmeee, I got some coins from you, but I think that was before I updated this evening.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 1:02 AM

Answer from: LoisH
I've updated and just finished gifting ... before reading this thread. I sent all wl items and a round of ladybugs to everyone. Sure hope they weren't all coins for my friends who haven't updated. Was also sad to discover that when visiting friends, we once again get sent back to the beginning after each visiting each person : ( . But am overjoyed that I no longer get kicked back to the G5 logo when time traveling every time time I change a date!

Answer from: Annette
I'm on a Samsung tablet I haven't recieved the update as of yet, but I got one hell of a lot of coins, plus my friends are in different places from what they were, what I mean is Lois wascon the first page and is now on the second, Just Sue was on the second page and is niw on the first page but in a different position from where Lois was so they haven't just swapped, I am not sure exactly who but there are a lot of changes in my friends list I'm just hoping none have wondered off because if they have with all swapping around it may take me a while to figure out whose gone a miss, xx

I have not yet had the new update. I am receiving coins as gifts from those who have been updated I am on android so will have to wait. I will try gifting to friends later today to see what happens. Chris GDLJRV.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 3:41 AM

Answer from: Thekettlewitch
@Gee I definitely tried to send the WL item, so as an experiment I have just gone back in and instead of clicking the item on the WL, scrolled through the screen to send you the drink me potion from there. Let me know if you get it through this method or whether it's another coin.

For me, I have mainly received WL items, only one coin but I am really struggling to connect and abandoned my travels yesterday. Will have another go later. Also, the return to the first page of the friends list is a mighty headache! X

@somecallmetim, that isn't good, those were paintbrushes! Well will try again now that you are updated. Chris

Posted: May 6, 2014, 5:07 AM

Answer from: Illia
GeeGo mentioned getting coins from me. I sent Ladybugs. I never send coins unless they are on a wish list. I also received lots of coins, books and crowns from friends who I'm sure didn't mean to send those items. When I time traveled back to try to send multiple gifts, the game wouldn't let me send more last night. Will try again this morning.

Answer from: Scarletecho
It's raining coins on me too! I am playing on a Kindle Fire, so will have to wait for the update. It looks like I received the coins from the players who updated. I put only combining elements on my list. I hope my gifts went through. I didn't send any coins on purpose. I hope they can fix this soon but I meanwhile will just keep combining coin collections.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 5:26 AM

Answer from: GeeGo
@Illia: Yeah, I figured that was the case. @Thekettlewitch: Sorry, no drink me bottle received, just a coin. Thank you both for trying, though!
Just an update on from whom I'm receiving coins: Annipop, Windchime, MRappey (MRcrtsandLbugsPlz), Sc, Feecrtsorbugs, Clare, Mac, DC4, ShenLadyBugPls, Riki. You all have updated, I assume?

Answer from: Alexandria
I play on an iPhone and have not yet updated. I only have combining elements on my wish list and I've received coins from Gigi, Angie, Irka and Nsand. Disappointed to hear you get sent back to the first friend page after visiting a friend. I was really happy when they fixed that. All that scrolling gets annoying really fast.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 7:03 AM

Answer from: PatL
Sgggggg, sent you a gift today after having updated. I'm betting you get a coin from me. Can you confirm? I was going to hold off updating for a few days, but all those coincs (I.e., wasted gifts) made me reconsider.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 7:08 AM

Answer from: Ari
I just keep wondering what items these coins represent! If only I had the combining elements necessary to make collections out of these coins. But I don't and if I put them on my wishlist, I'll just get more coins! Ah well. I've just discovered that just about everyone who gives me gifts apparently uses an iPad. In all of the above though, it's not clear to me - are the friends who updated getting coins too?

Posted: May 6, 2014, 7:42 AM

Answer from: Sc
@GeeGo: yes, I've updated.. Didn't mean to send you coins. So should we be sending gifts to those who have not updated yet?

Posted: May 6, 2014, 8:42 AM

Answer from: Mmmeee
SC, I have decided not to until the glitch is fixed as they seem to be only receiving coins. I think I will start a new thread asking for device clarification as I am a bit confused about that. I know Kindle is getting coins for both Collection Itmes and Gifts. I am not sure about other devices. Chris

Posted: May 6, 2014, 9:11 AM

Answer from: Mmmeee
Changed my mind and decided it belonged here. Just some clarification here please to make sure I have this right. All devices that have not updated only receive coins for either gifts & collection items if sent by someone who has updated. Thanks, Chris

Posted: May 6, 2014, 9:18 AM

Answer from: KaReN
@Mmmeee: My Nook HD+/Android seems to be acting exactly the same way as the Kindle reports. Of course, the update is not available yet for either of us. It seems to me to be a matter of whether the recipient has updated yet or not, more than the particular device, but it wouldn't hurt to clarify that further.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 9:20 AM

Hi @ PatL - yes your name is now added to the Coin list.

Answer from: GeeGo
@Sc: Hi, I assumed that was the case. It's cool. Did you get the ladybug I sent you (11am EDT)? Re gifting: I don't know how other people feel about it, but I don't mind if those with the update don't send me gifts for the time being. Again, I speak only for myself. Please still send "thank you" (wrapped) gifts so I know you're still active, though.

@Mmmeee: I play on an HTC One (the version that came out last summer), and I am receiving coins from those with the update.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 9:32 AM

Answer from: Shorty
My question to those not updated is would you rather receive a coin, because that's all updated people can send you, or would you rather receive nothing? Personally I would feel bad not sending something. Coins are an easy collection to make and they count toward your collection award just like any other collection does. I'm going to go through my friend list and note who has updated and who hasn't just so I don't waste collection items. So what are your thoughts?

Posted: May 6, 2014, 9:43 AM

Answer from: KaReN
@Mmmeee: We seem to have crossed in cyberspace. So yes, I think you are correct. I have just gotten through doing an extensive list of which friends have updated and what, if anything, I have received from them. (I have not updated.) In every case, I have received only coins or thank you gifts from my updated friends. Don't know if any of them tried to send collectibles, but I was a little behind and didn't get those items removed from my wish list until a couple of hours ago, so it's possible. I have otherwise received one collectible and two combining items, from three friends who have not yet updated.

So after reading what others have posted and studying my own situation, it looks to me like the big problem is with things sent by updated friends to non-updated friends, unless it is a thank you gift. "Thank"fully, those are not all coins, too. Non-updated to non-updated seems to be working normally.

@everybody: What I am not entirely clear on is whether collectibles sent from non-updated to updated are getting through. I think from JJJ & Brian's experiment that they are, though I wasn't clear on all of the variables going on there. I have only sent 5 of my 10 collectibles for the current gifting cycle. The 3 to updated friends included a waffle cone to BA, Polar Fox to Shorty, & a digital clock to Bren. Would love to hear back from you 3 about receipt of those items! I assume the watch to Jimbo and risotto to karen went through, but confirmation on those would be nice, too. Thanks!

Posted: May 6, 2014, 9:43 AM

Answer from: Shorty
KaReN, we must have been posting at the same time. Yes I did receive the Polar Fox from you. Thank you by the way. So I think you have the order right. It's just updated people sending to not updated that have the problem.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 9:46 AM

Answer from: KaReN
@Shorty: I agree with you. I haven't updated yet (not available for Android) and would like to get the coins vs not getting anything, but only if you have already gifted your updated friends and still have some of those 50 freebies to spread around.

Could you confirm for me if you received the Polar Fox I sent from your WL last night? I think collectibles sent from non-updated to updated friends are going through but would like to know for sure. Thanks.

@Shorty: We've done it again! How funny. Must be that "great minds" thing going on.

Answer from: MscElainey
A Kindle Fire HDX user here, and my piggy bank is getting pretty full. I vote with those who say y'all who updated can just send bugs until this mess is straightened out. (Am I correct in observing that users seem to be able to send ladybugs even when our inventory of them is empty? If so, it makes for a very reasonable gift.)

Being a lifelong Southerner, I never foresaw a time when I'd actually be *asking* for bugs. If there were only a true market for the pesky little varmints, I'd be a rich woman!

But nothing bugs me much anymore. :-) This, too, shall pass, my friends.

Answer from: Mmmeee
KaReN, I don't think this is going to work but I am going to send you a LB. Could you tell me what ya get? I'm guessing it will be a coin but just in case... Chris

Posted: May 6, 2014, 10:52 AM

Answer from: Sggggggg
HI Shorty - Thanks for asking. I don't mind coins at all if you don't mind sending your free gift and have it converted. If you want to save for someone else - then that is okay as well.

I am debating upgrading as it appears (like many others) that my friends are split between platforms where no update is available and where update has been made available.

Quandry: If I update then I will be able to gift as normal and all can gift to me as normal. But that means that my non-upgraded friends will get coins (not very fair) and my upgraded friends will get as normal. If I stay as I am - I will still get something from my upgraded friends (Coins) and normal items from non upgraded friends - and cannot play new stuff that is available.

Since I tend not to be an early adopter - I think I will stick this way for a few days and see how it goes.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 10:57 AM

Answer from: Brian
@All At first I was going to say not to send anything to me at all but to everyone that is in my Friends list just send away. I can at least get my collection count up fairly quickly... Also, I don't know if non updated Apple devices are having this issue. Looks like it's 100% though on Android devices which obviously are not updated. This really all boils down to G5 not doing a muti-platform release. Then they could have beta'd the update ( I would think )

Posted: May 6, 2014, 11:58 AM

Answer from: KaReN
@Mmmeee: Yep, coin. I hadn't seen your post before I went back to game and accepted the gifts there. I'm almost positive one was a coin from you. At any rate, I have not received any ladybugs from anyone. If one comes through later, I'll let you know. Thanks for trying. Too bad it didn't work. BTW, when the game sends a coin instead of the intended gift, it doesn't come out of your personal coin inventory, does it? But if it's a coin sent because of trying to gift last item in inventory from WL, then it does. Right?

@KaReN, I'm not sure. Will let you know when I do a gifting round. For me it doesn't matter as I have no use for the coins but it might for others. Thanks for letting me know about the LB, I was pretty sure it wouldn't work but figured it was worth a shot. Chris

As a non-updated Android coin receiver, I will chime in and say I would rather get a coin than nothing. @Sggggggg I am glad you got the truffle.

I got coins form 1_ladybug, BCgirl 231, mojobugme, Zenya, Bryon,Kirkossa, and someone named player. Does any one know if this is getting worked on right now?

@Sggg: You didn't receive the Picture of the Plains from me? I sent it last night, along with a combining element.

Answer from: Clare
I sent out collection items last night. I don't want to be mean, but I don't want to send collection items that will automatically convert to coins. Do I send combining elements to everyone until this is sorted? I am still not accustomed to the list being in the wrong order, let alone the raining coins problem.

Answer from: Brian
Clare... For people that still want gifts to help with collection count, just send what you feel like... Obviously you are not required to send a specific item especially since you know it will get converted to a coin. Anything you choose, I will still be around and also happy to have it. ;-)

Answer from: KaReN
@Chris: Thanks for checking on that. I didn't want to say, "Sure, send on the coins. They're better than nothing," and then have it be draining them dry.

@Clare: You don't sound greedy; you sound very reasonable not to want your collectibles floating around in cyber-space. I think if you send to another friend who also updated, then they would get the item as intended. (But check with one of them to be sure.) If you are gifting someone like me who has not had the opportunity to update yet, definitely don't send a collectible. It will go into oblivion. If you want to send something at all, just click on any combining element in wish list, and it will be sent to your friend as a coin. I suppose that at least you'll be able to get Thank You gigts from that

What I was trying to say earlier (and maybe being obtuse again?) is why not send ladybugs instead of combining elements? You have to work for these elements and they come out of your inventory, where the bugs appear to be free if you visit the Mill and use up all of yours before you start gifting. Just my humble opinion. Frugally yours, Elaine

Answer from: KaReN
@Miss Elainey: Under normal circumstances, some people do choose to send ladybugs instead of combining elements, but that is typically because the recipient has given some indication they are particularly wanting ladybugs, which fits with your thinking that it can be harder to earn enough ladybugs to play the mill as much as needed than it is to earn the items needed to combine your collections. Nevertheless, assuming a sender has reached level 35 (right Brenda?), sending a ladybug is free, but sending combining elements is also free. Neither comes out of the sender's inventory. The only limit is one per friend per day, up to a total of 50 (unless the sender is a time traveler, which is a different thing altogether). Collectibles, of course, do come out of the sender's inventory, but not the combining element items. It is not even possible to send a combining item directly from inventory.

Now maybe all of that was a repetition of stuff you already knew, and you are limiting your comment above to the current abnormal circumstance of some people playing the updated version of the game and others not. And with that, a glitch has been noticed whereby any item sent from a player with an updated game to a player without an updated game gets converted into a coin somewhere in cyber-space. It doesn't matter if the item sent was a collectible, a combining item, or a ladybug…it will show up as a coin. Chris checked to make sure those coins are not coming out of the sender's inventory, and they are not. We also did an experiment to see if I would receive a ladybug if she sent one to me (updated player sending to non-updated player). Nope, it came through as a coin, too.

This does not hold true for things from a player with a non-updated game to another player with a non-updated game. Those items go through in the same way they always have. (See 1st paragraph.) I hope I have managed to address your question somewhere in all of this. If not, please ask again and we'll keep trying. Deal?

@Karen, I have not updated yet and DID receive the watch you sent. I have receives mostly coins from my friends the past 36 hours. I will definitely get the upgrade tonight after work. BTW, I changed my name in game to Jimbobugsplz. I still like WL items but LBs are needes anytime. Thanks.

Answer from: Sc
@GeeGo: yes I did receive your bugs. Thx! Hopefully the update for the rest of OS will arrive soon. Or till they fix this problem.

Answer from: NachoMary
@Clare, I think your hesitation to send collection items is perfectly understandable. I don't want anyone's inventory being depleted for what would ultimately be to no good use on either end. We are all at the mercy of G5 and my pure guess is that this glitch won't have a particularly speedy fix. I have a few low level collection items on my wishlist right now and my non-updated friends are taking care of them. I figure all the coin collections will simply be a way to get my collection count higher until G5 gets the update problems worked out.

Answer from: Shari
Several of my friends are in this convo... I play on a Kindle & am getting tons of coins. I don't have the update. Do I need to remove collection items from WL? I don't want you to send them if I can't get them. Are you getting WL items or coins from me?

Posted: May 7, 2014, 1:15 AM

Answer from: KaReN
@Jimbo: Thanks for answering my question. Your answer is consistent with what I expected. I hope the uograde goes well for you. I'll try to remember to send you some ladybugs!

Posted: May 7, 2014, 1:39 AM

Answer from: KaReN
@Jimbo again: After reading and answering your post here, I went to the game because I had never gotten around to doing my gifting for today. (Spent all afternoon in the dentist's chair, then needed to rest and sleep while my mouth and jaw had a chance to calm down.) Anyway, you did say you have already added the "bugsplz" to your name, right? Because I am not seeing that on my friends list. I sent you a ladybug anyway, but I can't figure out why I don't see the name change. Also, I still see the wristwatch in your WL. I assumed you would have removed it by now, but maybe you haven't had a chance yet. Some other people's lists look much as I remember them from yesterday, too. Thankfully, I only have 2 active friends who seem to never change their lists. So it's hard to know for sure how many of the other lists I'm seeing today have not changed in the past 24 hours or so, but now I am really beginning to wonder what is going on.

Answer from: Sggggggg
@Clare - On Monday night Europe time - I did receive several Picture of the Plains collection items. I did not note who sent them to me, and did not see this coin post until Tuesday morning my time, but I think you might have been one of them who sent it. Since Monday night (and after people upgraded) I have been getting coins from updated players. I have since yesterday removed all collection items from my list and am happy just to receive coins from you - if you wish to send them. :)

Thanks very much for being a good friend and your question to me.

I play on an iPad air, and I have not updated yet. My gifts are mostly coins. If anyone wants me to send something in particular as a trial, let me know. If I can backup the iPad today,was planning to do the update.

@Jimbo: Today your name change and new WL both appear. I wonder why the delay, but doubt we'll ever know.

@All I was perusing G5's Facebook and I noticed that they respond periodically. So, I grabbed the link for the new update from the Facebook page and will post it in this comment. I also left a not so nice comment about the update there as well. Feel free to join in .... :-p Link

@Brian: Not having a facebook account, I was surprised that I was able to get to your link. I read your comment and thought it was well said.

Answer from: Lynne
I play this game on my Kindle Fire, and I, too, am receiving nothing but antique coins from my friends, though the only thing in my wishlist right now is the teapot. I've cleared out my wishlist and added the items fresh hoping that would help, but no luck. I notice this thread is from May 7, but I'm still only getting coins.
