Maybe we don't always get gifts sent?
OK, I have debated with myself on this for a while and, it might still be a very stupid question to ask but I was wondering if anyone else thinks maybe we don't always get gifts sent to us?
I ask this because I have a few friends from this site who never send me any gifts, not even TYs. But others on this site are constantly praising them as good friends and they claim to "TT and gift generously". I wonder about it because some of those friends used to be good friends and I don't see any reason why they would have stopped. I am thinking of doing some culling this weekend but I still hesitate with these few.
Does anyone else ever wonder sometimes if they are getting gifts from all their friends?

Why not pm them and ask them to send an item as a test to see if you have a problem with your game? No one on this site would mind checking for you. Helen

Yes it sounds fishy and you may have a glitch in your game. Everyone is very generous and I can't see why they would all leave you out Aria. Post a request for your friends to send 1 test gift each. That's what I would do, especially before you debate the delete.

Hi Aria, I had a friend ask if I was still playing because they had not recieved a gift from me in a while - it was only then that I noticed they had been dropped off my list, but apparently not off their list! When I had 30ish friends, I would notice who was where, and would notice the body-snatchers at work. But I am way too muddleheaded to keep track of 150 other players, especially with the crash madness lately. The other thing is - did you stop playing for a bit? if you flicked on to their inactive list, it might take a few multi-gifts to make them notice you are alive again! I would PM them and ask :)

Aria, I have wondered the same thing about a few people. I am not sure why- but I have a friend who keeps sending the spiral spring. It doesn't matter what I have on my list- that is what I get. They are at a pretty high level- over 100- so it is not that they do not have access to the other items. It is peculiar because they would have to scroll to send it- just an odd choice especially when I have recently had the winding key on there. That's the first thing- so easy to click and send- and I need it :)
Before you delete check to see how many friends they have- if they have more than 50 they may rotate and you would get tagged every so often instead of every day. I made that mistake and deleted someone who didn't send me something for 2 weeks- the boards raved at what a great friend they were- come to find they were going for the friends reward and had over 300 people on their list. Also- with the glitches a lot of good people have taken a break but not all put that in their name.
If you really want to know who sends what- start a spread sheet. It take time, but it really does put some things into perspective. Good luck.

Hi Aria, r u my friend? If so I just visited and gifted you today. If it is u let me know PM me. I haven't been gifting you because you appear to be in active and I haven't had visits or gifts from you in a long time. I have many friends so I do pass over inactives because I have lots in my 400 and some friends. If this is u, There is nothing on your wish list in my game. Ill gift u more often if it's you and let me know what items you need or I will default to carrots and ladybugs.

Hello Aria: I know for fact that all the gifts sent do not seem to arrive. I have an IPad and a droid and my significant other also has an IPad and I multiply and complete collections on all these machines. If I send 10 collection items over, they will write over what items I still have in my gift box, up to ten items. Thank you's won't be overwritten but will overwrite other gifts given, Thank you's don't get overwritten from what I see. You and or others might see something different. If I want to multiply I make sure not to gift my friends for at least 12 hours. Problem has seemed to be around since Tavern update. I figure a lot of friends are gifting but gifts are being overwritten or gift box locked up. Hope this helps.

Lots of good responses here! Never considered asking for the test gift but that's a really good idea.
Honestly, I have a few extremely EXTREMELY generous friends who TT and/or give collection items almost as soon as I put them on my wish list and make it easy to become lazy about monitoring friends who only seem to take. If I wasn't restricted to one free gift per friend, I would be more active on this and angry about giving gifts to people who don't give back.
