Question & Answers
For all my wonderful friends...
My game has developed the gift crash glitch. Right now, I'm able to accept some gifts, and I can still get into my friends' list to send you gifts, but I'm asking you all not to send any thank you gifts for the moment. They take up space, complicate my gift acceptance routine, so please restrain yourselves, as much as possible. I know the occasional slip of the finger occurs, and that's understandable, and probably not a problem (and I won't be deleting anyone for slipping up!) so you don't need to worry or apologize for that -- but please, don't thank me for every gift. Thanks!

Gotcha! Lots of sympathy from me. My gift crash problem is currently at 239. Ack!
BTW, I loved your old name. Instead of reading it as PKP updated, I always thought of it as PK Pup ;-)
Answer from: Deeu2
Yeah me too Pup. I'm lucky really, I'm at 120 on the crash. Let us know how you get on with the issue.
Answer from: Cadata
I was at 120 for 2 weeks and then it jumped by 60 one night. I'm at 214 right now. Best to take gifts in small amounts over the day not all at once. I am going to log a ticket to hound G5 for all of us. This has been going on since the update in May for my iPad. It's a royal pain!
Answer from: Kathie
Okay no TYs from me. I will be really careful. Let us know if you want us to be cautious on the gifts as well. I usually give what's asked on the list but will limit that to 1 gift if you want.
Answer from: PKP01
Thanks for the sympathy and support, guys! At this point, regular gifts are ok. Interestingly, the glitch seems to have been triggered by a thank you gift, as all the inaccessible gifts (for now, anyway) are TYs. I'll let you know how I make out. Tomorrow, I'll put in a ticket at G5, too. The more people who complain (I figure), the more pressure on them to fix the problem.
Funny that some of you read my name as PK Pup. The "real" PKP is a cat (Princess Killer Pinknose) from a very funny book called Cats in Cyberspace. I'm not sure she would approve of being thought a ....gasp!.... DOG.
Answer from: Shen
I also read it as pk pup, always smile when I see it. Love dogs! With the gift crash thing does it mean that it misbehaves when you get to that number or can u only accept above that number?
Answer from: hzandroid
Sorry to hear about your problem, will be very careful to avoid the thank yous.
Answer from: Annette
Hi hun I'm so sorry to hear this and I promise to do my very best hun, your an amazing friend thank you for everything hun, xxxxxxxc
Answer from: orchidgirl619
No! Not you too? Too many of my friends crashing. Gifted today before stopping by here so I do apologize for the couple TY gifts I sent your way. Will keep that in mind. My suspicion all along about TY gifts and gift crashing. Hence the NOTHANKUGFTS attached to my name in SS. It really curbs the TY gifts I receive. But not as bad as before. Hope G5 fixes all of you gift crashers soon!
Answer from: PKP01
For me, I can only successfully accept gifts above my crash number. Currently, it's not too bad -- the last three gift box screens (18 gifts) are sealed; but I know from other posts, that the problem threshold can rise dramatically, so I'm trying to limit the gifts I receive to the things I want/need. It' say pain, but I know a lot of players are worse off, so I'm not complaining (much).
Answer from: Smuffin
Yikes! Sorry, kitten ;-)
Let me know how the no thank yous goes. I'm starting to feel that my gift crash increase is due to thank yous. Hmmmmmm
Answer from: Mare
Will do my best to not TY... With gifts anyway... I thank all my friends with positive thoughts about advancing each and every day! Best of luck!
Answer from: Katydid
Yep, those thank you's are wreaking havoc. So sorry you've become their victim, PKP. I will be very careful not to send you any. Hope G5 gets their act together and fixes some of this mess...not holding my breath though. Hang in there and thanks for being such an awesome and generous friend!
Answer from: Infernia
Sorry, just noticed the name change while I was zipping through and quit but you may have gotten a few! Thanks!
Answer from: marmelle
PKP, i did try not to give you thank-yous... But this does not work for me.
I left only your gifts in my box, and every time I tried to close without sending the TY my game did crash.
I finally did send the TYs and all went back to normal for me.
So, if these are really a problem for you, please feel free to skip me in your gifting, or to drop me in these troubled times.
Answer from: Debneedsflies
Hi PKP, sorry you are having problems. Those thank you's do seem to create a lot of issues. I usually send a set of combining gifts when I am gifting, do you want me to stop that and just send you're WL items? Let me know and thanks for all your gifts, you are an awesome friend and have shared so much knowledge on this forum.
Answer from: Sami
Hi PkP, I saw the name change a little late, so sorry for the previous TYs. I'll make sure to stay on top of not sending any. Sami.
Answer from: PKP01
@Marmelle - you're the second of my friends to have this problem of not being able to close gifts without sending TYs. What devise/operating system are you playing on? And -- I apologize if you already know this and have tried it -- does it not work to clear the TY out of your gift box by clicking the small bronze x in the right hand upper corner of the "thank" window? If you really must send TYs, I can probably handle it as long as you only thank for one gift -- which may mean that you can't multiply my gifts, if you have to thank for each multiplication. I'd rather not delete anyone over this -- and I hate not sending gifts! -- so let's see if we can develop a workable compromise!
@Infernia - don't remember seeing any TYs from you, and am heartily thankful, myself, for all the multiple combining elements you send!
Answer from: Sue
Hi PKP - I play on an ipad and now you can add me to the gifting crash too :-/ I downloaded the iOS 7.1.2 update yesterday and all was fine until this afternoon. I can't even access my gifts at the moment or I get booted out of the game completely. I agree that the TY's are making the problem worse. My gift box is at 187 and still slowly climbing so I have cleared my wish list and won't be sending any gifts for a while because I just don't want to risk anymore TY's until I can access my gift box again. Sorry to all my fantastic friends but hopefully it is only temporary :-( My SS game has also been shutting down whilst I'm on this forum - I generally like to go back and forth between the two.
