Why do people get so uptight over Farmville posts like Jared there. It’s just a game. A time waster. If he really wants to know what is going on in Jenna’s life, why doesn’t he call her instead of sitting on her page waiting for an update like a fucking stalker? He’s a douche for letting a game piss him off.
Spanky, because it takes up huge amount of space on your own home page. It’s very annoying and if you click on hide then I think it hides all updates on that person. I don’t think you’ve got any mates who are on it constantly it then you’d understand.
The ribbons are beneficial to friends who also play the game. Every ribbon someone wins is 100 coins in friends pockets. I get that but the constant updates about farkel scores, fish tanks cleaned, what does your eye color say about you, etc is really fucking annoying.
I feel ya, Kristy – friend of mine was constantly writing cryptic attention whoring status updates but would then tell everyone “I don’t want to talk about it.” I finally called her on it much like Kristy here – not because I’m cool (obviously) but because I LOST IT. I am happy to report (read: no one gives a fuck but here we are) that she has cut way back on her attention whoring ways. At least via status updates.
Oh, and people like Nikita make me puke. Put down Twilight and get yourself more of a life, dear.
In my day we wanted to be footballers, actors, doctors, teachers etc. What’s the world coming to where everyone is a vampire, werewolf, mafia leader etc. I get the whole, lets escape reality thing, but really, a farmer? A virtual farmer? If I gave 99% of the people who play this game a spade and a pile of shit and I told them to fertilize the crops, I wonder what their statuses would then be, I’m pretty sure we’d see a lot less ribbons around thats for sure.
Used to play a farming game years ag, Harvest Moon I believe it was called. Loved that game. Don’t remember texting everybody telling them I’d just grown a carrot or found a lost cow/sheep.
Yeah fair enough, you can block them. Or, you can not be the irritaiting friend in the first place and not constantly post it. I have often in a moment of sad weakness done a quiz or two. At the end I chose NOT TO PUBLISH! That way people would not only not find out my sad act, but wouldn’t find annoying posts either.
Noone else notice the without out you? No need for another out there love
Jenna – nobody cares what goes on in Farmville unless you spell your achievements or any private communication out in hay bails. And even then it’s not that great until you come on here and make a tit of yourself trying desperately to defend yourself.
Sure, you can choose to hide the updates from Farmville etc… HOWEVER, I can’t on iPhone FB and being a small screen as it is, the Farmville updates etc are a MAJOR EPHING WASTE OF SPACE… I’m with Jared… 100%.
That’s the trouble with the English language. We don’t have a proper gender-neutral pronoun so people are stuck either using they/their or he-or-she. While the former is incorrect, it’s a hell of a lot easier than constantly saying “he or she”.
The really stupid thing about Jared’s post was that it’s pretty easy to get rid of those. If you hover your mouse on the right side of any application post then there’s an option to hide either posts from the application or the user themselves.
Yeah I used to think those farmville post were pointless but actually if you click “Get a bonus from …” you get coins for your farm. Not that I play farmville… anymore..
And yeah, if you don’t like posts from an application you can just hide them, it’s that simple. No need to try and be smart and make a stupid comment.
