  • I think all our friends have gone AWOL.

    Comment


    • Got into my friends' villages tonight, tried to gift, but also got the "they need to update" message. At least we all are aware of this issue. I see a silver lining coming soon...

      • To all my smurfy friends, good news to most of you, I got to enter all your villages and got to gift and water all your flowers and palms. Now the bad news, @Gsev and Pmakm, although I can enter your villages, I can't seem to leave gifts as it keeps telling me that you haven't updated yet (which shouldn't be the case). I'll keep trying in the next few house. Sorry if you don't receive your gifts today.

        • Missing four neighbors in my village. It says that Lilly,PMAKM, and Lele not updated although I was gifting them before this problem. Other than that, I had my two usual crashes.

            • What do you know, finally found what's causing our gifting problems...



              The announcement was so well hidden in the beeline site (under support). I just wish they could've made an announcement here in the forums to spare us all this agony.

              *Sorry for double posting this, just want to spread the word.

                Thanks Smurfy. I am surprised that Spelling Bee or Worker Bee didn't alert us to the server issue.

                Thank you for the update Smurfy Bear. This is out of control! It's been 3 days for me unable to gift anyone. Sorry 😢

            • Hello everyone! I am so sorry for not gifting. I drop my iPad and it crashed. It is at iPad hospital right now. I though it was only going to be for one or two days but I received it yesterday and it turned off as soon as I took it on my hands! I am really worried! I'll get back to you as soon as possible!

                Ouch! Hope the smurfs are okay.

                Thanks for letting us know. I hope you get it back in good working order for the weekend.

            • I was able to gift most of my friends today! However, IndyThrasher and Gsev1, I could not gift because of "needs to update." Sunny, Stacy9107, And Roby-Auslan I could not enter at all due to "internet connection." I will try your villages later today.

                  My other two games do this and it is very appreciated. Beeline seems to have missed the boat on that one. 😕

              • Playing on a hunch here but maybe all our smurfy neighbors that we can't gift now because their village supposedly hadn't been updated yet (but we know that they had indeed updated already) had either ignored the recent pop up asking us if we want to link our game to GC or answered "no" to the question. Beeline's server maintenance may have involved the need for us to resend our current game save thus the pop up question. Hope I'm making some sense.

                  I stand corrected, my hunch is wrong about the pop up. But I don't think it has anything to do with the bug fix update. I think I'm one of the early updaters once the bug fix update was released but I was able to gift everyone. Besides, I was able to gift all the supposedly who didn't update before the server maintenance. It seems one of our common link is Gsev. I wonder what we've done that she hasn't that's causing the server to think she hasn't updated yet? (I can gift her before the server maintenance)

                  I suppose all we can do is guess, right Smurfy? LOL!! You're right... Gsev definitely seems to be a common link among several of us. I hope we are able to gift her soon. Maybe by the end of Friday, all will be well with gifting for everyone, and we will start to forget that we were having any issues at all! 😊

                  Hi guys! I apologize for being gone for awhile...it's been an extremely busy week with my kids award ceremonies & graduations...I haven't had a chance to check & see if there were any new updates...sorry...I'll get to it now while I have a chance. I also apologize for not gifting the past few days & thank you to those who kept gifting or at least kept trying to. I'll do my best to return the favor today

              • Gifting is a real issue because I can only intermiittently get the friend list to load! I got the list earlier today, but when it crashed, I couldn't get it to load again! Will keep trying...

                • All my friends loaded this morning and I was able to get into everyone's villages. I was able to gift everyone except for GSev's main village.

                    No problem, Gsev. I know how hectic life can be.

                • My friends list finally loaded today and I was able to gift everyone. 😀
                  I didn't notice much difference, but there seem to be a few changes? For the first time in months, both Ray and Dharmasmurf loaded on the first try, no crashing. That made me very, very happy. My other crashers crashed as usual and Jundarer crashed on the first attempt, as well. I hope that one was just a fluke and not a permanent change. The slow loaders still loaded very slowly. In fact, all the villages seemed to take longer than usual to load.
                  Hopefully, they are ironing more issues out because these minor changes don't seem worth the stress and missed gifting we have gone through the past few days. 😐

                    Hi Happybird, I think you can safely perform the papa smurf hidden recovery as I believe the save game on that is located in your device and not on the servers. I advice you to perform a itunes/icloud backup first just to be sure. Tapasz also said that GC backup is also working so if anything goes south, you have several options left. Best to perform the hidden recovery early so that you won't loose that much progress in your game.

                    Try offline, if anything goes wrong you can sync back to GC. (Not sure if it's possible offline, never used it. But it should work as it's on your device like Smurfy said)

                    I just safely restored my game while in airplane mode. Lost 5 or 6 SB earned from my wonders, but it is worth it.


                    Edit: my wonder SB were ready to collect again! I didn't realize they would reappear! Excellent!

                • Finished my gifting run and got to gift almost everyone. @Gsev, sorry again but still can't leave you a gift as it keeps telling me you haven't updated yet, I'll keep trying for the rest of the day. @Pmakm, hope your ipad will make a speedy recovery
