The Dirt Farmer LIVE! Show Summary March 19th, 2017

EXTRA EXTRA Read all about it!!!
Have you ever wanted to listen to the podcast, but you are unable to do so? Do you want to know what's happening in the world of Farmville? Do you need a quick reference for your quests, leaderboards, farmstands and more?  Well do we have a treat for you!! Here it is this week's EXCITING new addition of The Dirt Farmer LIVE! Show Summary!  If you enjoy reading it, please remember to share with your fellow farmers!

***Flash Poll***
The Dirt Farmer knows how frustrating it can be to make an accidental cash purchase, in-game, while playing FarmVille. For many of us, it seems as though our computer and our game freezes at the most inopportune times, and we double click with our mouse, and purchase unwanted bushels, or spend Farm Cash to speed up a crafting that would be finished in just a few minutes. However, we also tend to get frustrated at all the pop-ups that we have to navigate through while playing the game. The Dirt Farmer would like to know, which is more important to us farmers, do we want to keep our Farm Cash, and have more pop-ups that might delay the game for a few seconds, or do we like way the game is currently set up?
...It seems that an overwhelming 97% of those who voted want to see a pop up confirmation for each and every Farm Cash purchase
...and it's not too late to vote...We're going to drop that link in the Dirt Box now

***Do You Remember the Dino Lab***

Hard at work on Opal's Kingdom Underwater Arena? Wondering where the Deep Sea Dinosaur should be placed? That little rascal needs to be placed in the Dino Lab, an animal lab building that was released in 2012..While you are placing him, consider harvesting your dino labs for your friends, a lot of them still need the DNA! Please share with your friends.

***Farmer’s Square***

Howdy Farmers! Have you noticed somethings have come up missing in Farmer's Square? Crafting images are invisible? We've reported this to the FarmVille Studio, and hopefully it will be fixed soon. It you still haven't started to expand Farmer's Square...If you have never really explored your FARMER'S SQUARE we highly recommend doing so...and we have a complete guide to Farmer's Square and we will drop that link right here right now

We have a new thingy for you on our website, It's great for FV but useful for everyday computing and internet shennanigans.  It's a SPEED TEST.  Your internet provider probably charges you based on the speed of your internet.  YOU really need to check to be sure you are getting what you are paying for.  Also..., If your SPEED goes down at 2 am, that may mean your teenager is watching NETFLIX instead of sleeping.  Be sure to BOOKMARK the Dirt Farmer's SPEED TEST Link and use it as often as needed.  You can always search SPEEDTEST on our website,

As most of you all may be well aware, this past Friday was St Patty's Day.  All the GREEN was somewhat of a clue.  Here at the Dirt Farmer we wanted to help you celebrate by having a contest.  All you had to do was to comment to our St. Patty Contest post, with your FVID and your choice of prize.  Our first winner is Margaret Razus who selected a Home Farm Un-Wither Ring, our second winner is Patricia Caminada who selected an English Countryside Un-Wither Ring.  These contests are something new we’re trying.   Be sure to comment through Facebook for your best chance to win.  Also be sure to be specific about the prize you'd like, we had dozens of potential winners who just commented DOUBLE STATUE, and currently there are over 40 please try to be specific.  Our next contest will start this week and will be an APRIL FOOL'S DAY CONTEST.

***Random Facebook News***
Facebook made a change to it's TERMS OF SERVICE this past week.  Basically trying to cover it's own ass from lawsuits.  As we all know, when you act a fool on Facebook anyone can see it, even your boss or possibly potential employers.  More and more people are getting in trouble in real life for acting a fool on Facebook.  So Facebook has made it a violation for anyone to use your "actin' a fool" on Facebook to discriminate against you in real life.  For all the good that'll do.  It seems to be just a cheap way to cover their butts from being sued by the ACLU.  So basically,  Don't ACT A FOOL on Facebook!

***Community Goals***
We can now tell you that there will be a new set of COMMUNITY GOALS for the Opal's Kingdom Farm starting in just a few short hours.  This week we will need to Own 170,000 New Land Expansions on Opals Kingdom.  Individually we will need to own at least 2 new expansions in order to qualify for the Fuel, Turbos, UnWithers, Super Fertilizers and finally FREE FUEL for 3 days on the new farm.

***Daily Delights***

It's very hard to remember to visit your farm everyday and collect that CANDY SUSHI.  Not only can you redeem that CANDY SUSHI for Fuel, Un-Withers and Insta-Grows but if you collect for all 7 days you can earn the bonus reward.  This coming week, starting in just a few hours that reward will be a Young Rodeo Sheep.  It's just a plain white sheep but he's got a cowboy gnome riding him.  YIPPY KY YI YAY!!!

CONGRATULATIONS! to our WINNER of last Week's BATTLEGROUND Opal's Kingdom Building & Treasure Parts Challenge (week ending 03.12.2017) Ann Zibilich. This Week's NEW Challenge is ST. PATRICK'S DAY CELEBRATION. The reward for the winner of this Challenge will be a Papa Dirt Prize: your choice of ANY Unwither Ring or Double Statue from the Market. If you are not a member of the Battleground Group JOIN TODAY and invite your friends.

***Double Points Statue***

The Double Points Statue for the new farm went LIVE this past Tuesday.  It can be all yours for 225 FV$ and enables you to level up on the new farm twice as fast.  But 225FV$ is a lot of money.  How can you afford all that when you have to buy trees and horses and gnomes, OH MY!!!?  Okay everyone.  DO NOT TELL LOCKE I'M DOING THIS,  But comment with your FVID in the Dirt Box.  We're gonna give away some Opal Kingdom Statues!

The ever popular Bob’s Berry Farm will soon be updated with a new Summer Outdoor Activity Theme. Currently coded to release on April 1st, it will be available until May 15 th . Just like in the past, the FarmVille Studio appears to be treating us to a mixture of old and new items, including a few decorations. There are a couple of colorful trees and a variety of animals in this chapter of Bob’s Berry Farm. There are some pretty nice items for all of us to collect, but no crops for us to master.
We have a Gardening Duck...a Summer Alligator...Summer Friendship Tree...Summer Fun Duck...Summer Horse...Summer Lolli Tree...Summer Petals Puppies in a basket...Summer Pool Nap gnome...Summer Snorkel Cow...Summer Style Goat...Summer Style Pegasus...Summer Sun Pig...Summer Sunset Sheep...Sunshine Giraffe...Vacation Frog...and finally a Vacation Van

This past Thursday the BEAT EVENT for Opal's Kingdom went LIVE.  You can now commence to BEAT THE SNOT outta the new farm in order to win that Beat Trophy and Shipping License:  Expand Farm Shell Stronghold through level 10.  Master all the Opal Kingdom Crops to LEVEL 3.  Make all 15 animals in the Underwear Arena, and Improve the Crafter's Shell to level 5.  It's just that easy.  Just like the past 20 or so farms before it.  BEAT THAT FARM UP GOOD!!!

***Land Expansions***

It is a DOUBLE EARNED LAND EXPANSION WEEK on the farm this week.  And it all starts in just a few short hours from now.  You can get the BEASTLY BEATNIKS consent to unlock the GOLDEN FIELDS on the Groovy Hills Farm, just reach level 87 on that farm.  And we can also get AQUAMAN'S consent to unlock the Brine Basin on the Opal's Kingdom Farm.  Just Upgrade Shell Stronghold to Level 1, Unwrap 5 Mystery Presents in Bubble Greenhouse, and Reach Opal's Kingdom Level 24.

***Lonely Animal Alert***

LONELY ANIMAL ALERT!!! A lonely Summer Lover Pegasus is lost and looking for a loving home. Get 5 friends to help you catch this pretty pegasus that would look awesome on any of your farms!! Spread the word and help catch this cowardly critter before it gets eaten up by a pack of sasquatches!

We have a brand new event starting sometime tomorrow.  The Farmville Studio is calling it the Fountain Of Springs Crafting Basket.  David the Zoologist is exploring the Fountain of Springs! He has found three campsites populated with exotic animals! The problem is that they are hidden.  If you help him find them , you will be able to keep the Sakura Springs Pegacorn on your farm as a bonus prize! FarmVille will soon come out with another tiered level crafting basket in the style of the Ghoul Ball and Mashashi's Ultimatum. We will be collecting and crafting Secret Treats to redeem for prizes. The best part of this feature is that you will redeem prizes of your choice, using Secret Treats as currency, there are no random chances.  Fountain Of Springs is currently scheduled to go live on March 20th, 2017 and end on April 19th, 2017.  We will be able to choose from 3 campsites of different sizes and difficulty levels to play for.  David will make a recommendation for each one of us for best odds to finish based on prior completion rates.  We need to ask Locke what David suggests for him, since he never finishes these features.  We will be able to post or craft for Secret Treats to lure the exotic animals out of hiding.  Each recipe includes one new crop. The new crops will be in the market at the regular update time, prior to the feature’s release. All three are currently available in the Bushel Swap feature if you wish to get a jump start.  Remember that new crops give lower bushel yields until they are mastered, so plan your planting quantities accordingly.  By redeeming all of the animals in our chosen crate, we can win a bonus prize - and keep the Sakura Springs Pegacorn on our farms.  If you complete your crate with time remaining on the feature, you can replay it or play another crate.  If you do happen to choose a crate that you have already played, David will check with you to see if you really wish to do that, so you don't have to worry about having to complete the same crate again due to one mis-click.
Rewards you can earn include a Mayuratail Cat...Maytide Dog...Starforest Deer...Flower Band Badger...Butterfly Lover Bear...Flower Shower Elephant...Spring Sunrise Cow...Little Earth Hedgehog...Flower Power Rooster...Magic Spring Horse...Spring Flora Horse...Rainbow Light Unicorn and Flowertail Pegasus just to name a few

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!
