***** QUESTS *****

The Groovy Hills Chapter 5 Quest is titled BUILDING BLOCKS and it started early this morning with 6 Stages and a one week duration. Hopefully you were able to check out our QUEST GUIDE right here on FARMVILLEDIRT.COM and you got a much needed jump on all that crafting by making 3 Coconut Clusters and 3 Cucumber Roll Ups in the Crafting Tent. LOTUS JELLO BUSHELS WILL TAKE 18 HOURS TO GROW and you will need those bushels for your QUEST CRAFTING. We are in week 5 but the recipes needed for this week's quest are still only 2-star or less, so, that's a good thing for those who haven't leveled up their CRAFTING TENT yet. Our Stage one reward is The Eye Tree, it's bright and colorful but EYE don't SEE the EYES. Next we have a Flower Power Chicken...YAY! We all need chickens. Then we have a Flower Coat Goat. Followed by a Flower Mane Lion and a Peace Wolf. Finally we have a chance to earn a Pink Peace Pegacorn

Is your FarmVille farm slow and crashing constantly? Have you been experiencing the annoying redirects while playing? The game and supporting items on the page may be taking too much memory. What we recommend is to set your browser to only allow flash to run when you approve it - then you have the option to only allow flash to load when you are playing Farmville or want to check out an image here on Important note - If you have upgraded to Windows 10 and have Microsoft's new Edge browser, plug-in customization options on it are still very limited and you can only set Flash to on or off. For that reason we recommend using another browser if you are having issues with lag and crashing. We have made a post right here on Farmvilledirt.COM that shows you have to make changes to your settings on Chrome and Fire Fox browsers. Bea is going to drop that link for you into the DIRT BOX or you can search it on our site "Farm Crashing? Too Slow? Read This"

This past week's Poll of the Week was a wee bit controversial. We decided to ask you all about your BOT use. BOTS are programs that can do tasks for you in Farmville. They can be simple tasks or they can basically play the game for you. Before we go any further let's see what you had to say about our QUESTION. Which basically asks. "Do you use BOTS"
85% of you say NO while 15% say yes they do

Ever since the Dirt Farmer was formed we have simply avoided talk about BOTS. We do not condemn players for using BOTS. We also do not teach players how to use BOTS. We have simply stayed neutral. But, Times do change so I thought it might be time to re-evaluate the situation. Some of you may have noticed that several weeks ago we stopped doing the POLL of the WEEK using the Facebook Poll System, and, instead, opted to use a POLL that we can inbed onto our website. We picked one that had no connection aspect to Facebook and one that does not show others how you voted. I did this knowing that this would be needed to ask about BOTS. Some players who use BOTS may not want others to know that they use the BOTS. But, despite all the precautions, some people decided that this was a DIRT FARMER trap, and that we would collect your name, even though we can't, and give Zynga your FB ID, even though the poll is outside of Facebook, and they started warning others that this was a trap, so it seems with everything Farmville, you just can't win. So...I doubt that the 85/15 split is actually accurate, but that's all we have to go by at this time

Not getting credit for your goods in your crafting cottages for fuel? Do you have 200 goods just sitting there? Zynga is enforcing the CAP of 200 goods in the crafting cottages to help with the loading issues when opening those cottages! So make sure you use your goods to keep them down under 200 so you DO NOT lose credit for those goods you are crafting for fuel!

The GENTLE WATERS expansion was released early this morning, And all you have to do is to get the HAIRY HIPPIES consent is to Upgrade Spring Fair to Level 3, Unwrap 10 Mystery Presents in the Sunflower Silo, and Reach Groovy Hills Level 33.

We all know that playing Farmville isn't getting any easier these days. Whether Farmville is throttling  access to your friends or the  Facebook newsfeed is hiding them from you it's hard to find help links on the newsfeed.  Add that to the fact that a lot of fellow players have quit and it becomes very challenging to  find help.  That's why you should join one or all of the Dirt Farmers SHARE Groups. Mam-Maw's Trading Post, Quest Help and More, The VOTE HELP Group and GOT SHEEP are link sharing groups where you can find neat items and even get help with common FV activities.  We also have several helpful groups such as The Dirt Farmer, Farmville News Network and others! Be sure to ASK to JOIN today and please tell your FV friends about these helpful resources.

In the meantime, we hope you will visit our website as often as possible.  Your support and your clicks on that website is what enables us to provide our services to all the players. Share those posts from our Facebook page so we can reach even more players, so we can help them manage their game and stay in the game. Without YOUR support there is no Dirt Farmer.  Thanks to each and every one of you!

That's all we have right now, remember to always visit Ask the Dirt Farmer for up to date information and help, and enjoy the rest of your week!
