This is crazy: 183 thank you gifts from one friend!?!

Ok, I try to send as many gifts to my friends as possible but I just got 183 thank you gifts from Marmelle. Don't have clue what's going on but I accepted them 30 at a time and watched them go into inventory. Crazy! And too bad carrots and ladybugs don't cone as thank you gifts ;-) Has anyone else seen this?

Answer from: KaReN
Nothing like that crazy number, but I did get 11 thank you gifts from friend who plays and collects her gifts daily. So I know they couldn't have all been legit. But 183? And from one person. Gotta be some kind of server thing or other glitch.

@Smuffin, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but they seem to randomly appear over and over. Mine is around 60 that keep coming back. I know I didn't send that many and it started a few days ago with various friends. Others have had problems too, fun isn't it... I have tried to figure out if there is a trigger but haven't found one yet. Tried emptying gifts, leaving gifts, a combo of accepting some, leaving some, deleting them, etc. So far no luck, they just seem to show up whenever they want so hopefully it gets fixed soon but there are bigger fish for G5 to fry right now so I am guessing we will be living with this one for a bit.

Does Marmelle know what's going in? She better go buy a lottery ticket!

Answer from: Permelia
Marmelle really likes to thank generously! Smuffin, I'm sorry but I did laugh out loud at that post title. Those are some crazy numbers! I don't suppose it is so funny when you are receiving that many of them.

Today, I received 265 thank you gifts from marmelle. It's Christmas in May!

Holy thank you, Batman! 265?

Answer from: Clare
@Smuffin: I posted a question early this morning, asking marmelle if she knew about the gifting glitch. She may not have seen it. I don't want to speak for you, but if you search for "Question for marmelle" and want to add to my post, you would bump up the thread and increase the chance that she might be made aware of the issue.

Answer from: Smuffin
Will do, Clare! Not so bad, Permalia. I felt very loved. Just wishing they were ladybugs, carrots, fireflies, etc ;-)

Just went in to start gifting and astonished to find that I had reached the "magic" 301 limit. Have now cleared the cache and more obviously arriving as I did so because I got a total of 304 thank-you gifts from Marmelle! Is this a record?! Hahahahehehe!

Too bad I'm not friends with Marmelle!

Answer from: Annipop
Marmelle has always been a good friend, but outdid herself today. I got 138 gifts!

Answer from: MRappey
Marmelie where are you? Can I become your friend too? Seriously, I haven't seen anything crazy like this before. The most I ever got was 153 gifts from one person, in one day. I normally get between 30-60 a day from her, but since the update it trickled down to a few...

Answer from: Oli
Yip, just happened to me. 154 of them. Marmelle is the lucky charm! Oli

Answer from: Annette
Hi everybody yes I received over 150 thank you gifts from Marmella last night too, but at the same time I don't have any coins in my wish list but at least 80% of my gifts are coins, I'm not complaining but it's very wierd. Any ideas whats going on. Xx

Answer from: JJJ
There is a glitch that if updated players take advantage of will cause multiple thank you gifts to be sent. Only updated players can accept all their gifts, then leave the now empty gift window open, then press the iPad home button once to get to the homescreen, then tap the SS game icon on the homescreen to open the game and the empty gift section will repopulate with the previously accepted gifts which can be accepted again (the gifts take a few seconds to come back so be patient). It works best if you wait a few seconds between moving from the homescreen back into the game. The gift screen must never be exited from, that includes tapping on any other tabs, like friends, must stay in gift tab all the time until no longer wanting to repeat process. If at any time the going to the homescreen and then back into the game causes the game to restart, the gifts will no longer come back, just like if you left the gift window at any time. You can wait until you get more gifts and then follow the process as many times as you want to get multiples of each gift in the window. This glitch most likely will go away once all platforms have been updated, it is probably part of the friend server work that was done recently. Sometimes I've accepted the gifts and before even having time to press the home button, the gifts repopulate the window. Anyway, once you decide you've had enough of getting the same gifts over and over, then close the gifts/friends window and you'll get all the gifts into your inventory and the thank you gifts will then be sent out and your friends will wonder how come you send them so many thank you gifts. Use this before it is gone.

Everyone seems to b getting coins instead of gifts has something to do with the new update for ios

OMG! @JJJ, you are the BEST!

It works, I'm just sad I didn't know this earlier when I had gift screens filled with ladybugs and ships in a bottle. But I've got one ladybug now and I'm wearing her out!

Miss you as a friend, JJJ, but extraordinarily grateful to have access to your posts. Many many thanks, Smuffin

JJJ how the heck did you discover that. Like Smuffin said you are the best, uou never cease to amaze me :)

Posted: May 7, 2014, 9:30 AM

Answer from: Smuffin
@MRappey, anything you want me to send you? I'm holding off doing it again till I get more collection items or ladybugs, carrots, fireflies ;-)

Answer from: Auster
JJJ, this advice is going to get me to the next Collection Award a whole lot quicker. Thank you. As usual, it just took me a while to convert the instructions to I-phone..but it worked. I-Pad home button is same as I-phone On/Off button. Ditto, what Smuffin said above. Thank goodness you are still playing.

Answer from: Marmelle
Better than multiple gifting, there is multiple receiving with iPad update ! After receiving gift, do not close the window, but hit the iPad home button (as if you wanted to change app), then go back to the game: gift are back there for you to receive again ! This is why you received so many thank you from me.

Posted: May 7, 2014, 12:29 PM

Answer from: Smuffin
It's fab, Marmelle! Hurray, send a carrot or a ladybug to me and you'll get a zillion thank you'd...virtual ones on the game and real ones from me! (if anyone one wants to send collection items, feel free. I have the dinners ones on my wish list.)

Let me know what you want and I'll reciprocate.

Best, Smuffin
(who feels like she may actually catch up to where she lost my game, thanks to this glitch :-)

@JJJ: Thanks for the tip, as always you are the best, our Secret Society guru! :o)

Answer from: Smuffin
Ha ha! @Ab, it's like Christmas. Now if I could get a nifty sparkly thing for my table that would spit out ladybugs! If I can ever get into gifts again, I'll send some more, wink wink.

That's happening to me too. Auster and Jo have sent a over 100 each. Glad to hear others have had this happening to them as I thought it was just me. Thanks

Dang, Smuffin, I wish Santy Claus came to Kindle folks, but if you were to send me the hardware I need, it would just end up in my bulging change purse. :-(

Boo, Elaine. Be sure and let us know what you need when everything sorts out. I'll send you lots of non-coins :-)

Hi, Smuffin. In one of other posts had JJJ explained how to multiply received gifts without suffocating other players with thankyou gifts. Because the problem is that one's box is too rapidly full of all thankyou gifts (in the Friend to Friend thread: Friends of mmmeee). Here are instructions:
JJJ: Answer from: JJJ
There is a way for non updated players to multiply their gifts and not send many thank you gifts, that way only sends one gift. This other glitch will most likely end once they update or sooner, depends on G5's programming. What you do is open to your gifts, but do not accept any, turn off wireless, or turn on airplane mode, whatever is easier on your device, the point is to disconnect from the internet, then go back to the game, accept all your gifts, close the gift window, let the gifts go into your inventory (a quick way to get them all into inventory is to tap the friends icon, it will give a message that you are not connected to the internet, tap ok and all gifts are instantly put into inventory), once all gifts are in your inventory, enable your internet connection again, go back to game and all your gifts will come back, open gift window again and leave it open, disconnect from internet again, while disconnected, accept your gifts, close gift window, allow gifts to enter inventory, connect to internet, go back and repeat and finally stay online and accept all gifts and that time they will send thank you gifts that last time only and gifts are gone. Repeat with new gifts to multiply them again. I am sure some of you have experienced this when you got failed to connect to server messages due to their server issues, now you can fail to connect at will and reap the benefits when you want.

YIKES! Thanks, New Moon, I totally missed that one.

Posted: May 8, 2014, 10:43 AM

Answer from: NewMooN
No, problem! I was just lucky and read JJJ`s instructions in the other thread first. Otherwise your box would be full with thankyou gifts right now :) and no spare place for WL gifts

Posted: May 8, 2014, 11:58 AM

Answer from: Marmelle
Oups, did not realize the thank you gifts were preventing you from receiving wish list ones, and messing up my friend boxes. Will use JJJ tip from now on. I have been spending all of my game time just cloning in the past 2 days, so apologies to all my friends.

Posted: May 9, 2014, 1:54 AM

Answer from: Coccinella
Thank you JJJ and others for these great tips re cloning gifts. I am a daily player and have wondered how some friends have been able to amass collections so quickly.

Posted: May 10, 2014, 2:26 AM

Answer from: JJJ
Now you know not only that, but how some friends can endlessly gift any and all collection items all the time, like me :)

Answer from: Rosey
Wow, okay so I came really late to the party! Lol better late than never I suppose. I have been catching up with the posts I missed and just figured out what multiplying gifts means. Thank you JJJ and NewMoon! I had one gift from JJJ in my gift box and have been multiplying the heck out of it! :) Tomorrow I will be able to do more. Thanks again, Rosey
