So today, a good friend let me know that she cleared three of my plants that had one click left each before I harvested my garden. Now, I had planted Light Bindweed II, which has over a 7 hour grow time, so is a 4 click plant. So the fact that people had clicked on 3 separate plants to leave them with 1 click needed each is frustrating. If all people would finish plants before moving to the next that would be much appreciated.

We have all made posts, complained or discussed in great lengths how frustrating this behavior is to us. Rather than complain or send a group message again, I would like to make a couple suggestions to help us to avoid and circumvent the bad and rude players or just those that are new and do not understand yet.

First, when our friends visit our gardens, they can see which plants have all clicks completed as well as which plants have partial clicks and how many left to complete them. Why can we not see the same information in our own gardens? Why can I only see the completed plants and have no knowledge of which plants are waiting to be completed? I would like to suggest that devs update our gardens so we can see all the clicks, finished or not. Even if this does not stop the rude or uninformed people from doing the bad clicking, it will allow us to leave those plants that are partial to not waste the clicks that good friends have left.

Second, I would like to suggest that there be a way to detail who clicked on which exact plant in the garden. I would like the list to detail which person clicked on each individual plant and if they moved to a different plant. Each planting spot in each garden could have an assigned number in the garden, like A1, A2 , A3 etc for the Aqua garden. So rather than the list just stating which friend clicked on 3 Light Bindweed II's it would state the plant and position number. This way you would know who was skipping around and not finishing one plant. I believe this would give us the opportunity to speak with the newer players that do not understand yet how it works, and have the potential to stop the malicious people from clicking rudely if we knew who was doing it. Or at the least, if it does not stop the malicious people, at least you would know who it was and could delete them as a friend.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Tylady

Well said Tylady. I agree 100%
Be kind, it shows in your eyes.

I agree, there have been times when gardens I have visited have had three separate plants clicked, easy to finish if they are two click plants and caught before the owner of the garden harvests, but not when one click has been allocated to each of four or three click plants which then sit waiting to be completed.

Great Idea! If we could see the plant clicks in or gardens we could leave partially clicked ones planted until fully clicked by visitors.

I like to understand the frustration
BUT..
instead of going after other players's clicks, maybe it's a better for all idea if . . .


Maybe friends - starting from each Clan - can just be educated & informed of what really happens if they do not finish one plant . . .

Maybe there are players who are just unaware of the gravity of the disturbance it causes you to have this in your gardens
- in this case why not to just include a note on this under the Avatar?

Maybe even a kind and educating Topic could be included [again] in the Hints & Tactics section . . .

:) ;)


Hope the suggestions help towards a solution good to all!!

Maleela,

All suggestions you have mentioned have been done....repeatedly. Hence my trying to come up with new suggestions to allow us to manage it.

- Numerous people have sent all friend mails asking others to finish partial plants first and explained that we do not get the credit.
- Many people have notes under their avatars requesting people finish plants already.
- There have been several Forum posts showing pictures and explaining how to finish plants to the best benefit and what not to do.
- We tell good friends when people have left multiple plants open in hopes they can figure out who is doing it and send them a message.
- I know many of us email people when we can figure out who is not completing plants. Usually to be ignored, misunderstood (maybe due to language barriers) or some people get rude responses. ( I personally appreciate the rude responses as then you can just delete that person and move on)
- We have made several suggestions over the years I have been playing, like requesting plant visiting be a start up quest so new people can learn the most helpful way. Or allowing only one plant to be clicked on at a time until it is finished, then the next can be clicked upon.

Language and translation issues do make things difficult at times, I understand that may be part of it. There are also just mean and rude people online as we have witnessed before, those that do it maliciously.
I would just be happy to know which plants are partially clicked so I could leave them until they are finished.

Thank you,

Tylady hi
I understand the situation & I thank you for your nice input

Unfortunately besides all other reasons, not all can work, as new people always come in - who are necessarily not knowing much on the game.

Your "I would just be happy to know which plants are partially clicked so I could leave them until they are finished" sounds like a great idea to me
and I'm sure we can send it out to the Devs
Of course, it is up to them to prioritize so as to when-and-if there will be changes and on which issues

Still, I'm certain that they will consider the suggestion

Thank you again!

this has been a complaint from a long time before ... it is infuriating sometimes to go to a friend's garden and see that someone deliberately clicked a multiple click plant one time. sometimes there is a mistake, but there are those who, for some reason, appear to be doing this intentionally. messages have been sent to everyone's friend list, so you know that it has gotten around, and it has been a hot topic on the forum multiple times. you have got to love the ones that find a plant hiding behind something ... like the blue arrow, or behind the avatar.... and deliberately click one click with more needed so people cannot see them to finish.
there are also people who will go into one of the more obscure gardens, like the root garden, even when there are plants in the aqua garden. they will click one time on a multiple plant. since there are plants to click on in the aqua garden, which is the first garden to appear, it is, again, a deliberate thing.
i do not know why people do this, but as it has been mentioned several times, it would be nice to see what friend clicked on which plant.
perhaps if they show a plant that was not completed with clicks and if you yourself click on it, it will tell you which friends were helping it along? since we can see our friends incomplete plant clicks, it should not be difficult for them to allow us to see our own....
i would love to see this in place.
