Back online after some Internet troubles following a storm yesterday. Back to normal posting tomorrow.
Is that why a couple of my comments are still awaiting moderation? Even though newer ones are already done? Or am I blacklisted for some reason???
Hi – just a huge backlog after my internet problems – only 400 more comments to clear!
Thanks for clearing that up, I was a bit worried there for a minute, because mine were in the middle of a bunch of others already approved. As English is only my second language, I might write something offensive without really knowing it – or make a really bad joke, that doesn’t translate very well. If ever, be assured it is completely unintentional, and I really love your work with this blog. It is one of the very few things on the net I actively participate in, and I am looking forward to reading it every day. Thank you
Hope your alright Mr.T and welcome back. Where are you from Canada the US and etc (I am sorry to ask you this this is optional if you don’t want to answer its alright) I don’t mean to ask you any personel question, but your blog is awesome!
Hi and thanks – I’m based in Hong Kong at the moment
Wow your awesome Mr.T you sure travel a lot hope you having a great time in honk kong your blog is great.
Ok now I’m curious. You’ve mention that you’re in central time, Which I’m also in, now you talk about a storm and I too was hit yesterday and today. So now I’m wondering if you live in or around Chicago. No need to answer I was just wondering
I had a bit of trouble with my Internet today as well so I feel ya. Glad it was only temporary.
Anyone else just get a massive update 102.6mb?
This must be the shortest post in TSTOtip’s history. But still, it’s good the Internet’s fine
Wow did not notice you were gone … I mean I was working so hard on my Springfield that I did not notice your absence. Glad to see you back online.
Please add me ! Im new to the game.. rudivb92
Rudi there is a special area for adding friends. It’s the add me link in the main bar of this page where you can click on home.
Hope its not long. I need my hourly fix of this site lol.
Hey, you in the Midwest too? The storms just wont stop. Lol
Here in Canada, we have Severe Storm Warnings for the WHOLE WEEK, at least in most of Ontario and Quebec anyway.
Hey Mark – Yeah I’m in southern New Jersey and we’re in a heat wave with temps in the 90-100 and very nasty storms have hit and are still possible. Crazy weather these days.
In Britain summer is the best day of the year! If you live in Britain you’ll get that.
“Insert name here”, yeah we have sayings like that in various parts of Canada too. For example, when I briefly lived in Calgary we would say, “if you don’t like the weather, wait an hour”. Although of all the cities I’ve lived in or visited, I would say Winnipeg is the worst… Bitter cold winters, extremely high winds, annual flooding, bug-infested summers, so your basic biblical plague-type weather issues
The weather here in Denmark (Scandinavia) is it almost always rainy and stormy. Guess its a bit Line in the UK

Im just saying ive just got tapped out on my kindle fire. (FINALLY)
Just today discovered that growing perfection 8 times gives you a bigger amount of money than growing tomacco for 60 minutes. Also, growing perfection 60 times pays out 600 dollars for $30 less than moonshine!
Very good observation!
And doing Bumblee mans 30 min task twice earns nearly a 1/4 more. And Barts 2 hour task earns a lot more than his 3 and doing the 2 hour twice earns more than the 4 hour.
Lloyd, I believe you’ll discover that everything that has different money-earning options will always give a higher payout for a shorter term option compared to a longer term. The only exception is that premium characters and buildings usually allow for higher paying tasks and thus can sometimes outpay a non-premium task of a shorter duration.
The reasoning is simple: EA wants to encourage you to actively play the game as much as possible, so they reward you for your time accordingly. Those who check in every hour will earn more than those who only play once a day. And those who want to sit there and grow perfection every 45 seconds can earn even more.
Hey Mike or Mr. Shu
I was wondering why my last few comments have been stuck in moderation so long. I’ve never posted anything that wasn’t respectful, grateful and at least semi-relevant. Though I admit to sometimes being more verbose than necessary, but this is WordPress after all
If I’ve inadvertently done something wrong please let me know. I have truly enjoyed participating on this on this wonderful blog.
Mr.T, Mr.M & Mr.R
I am having that exact problem my previous comment on this exact post has been awaiting moderation is it something I said, if its something I said then I am really sorry about that. Thanks
Hi – no, sometimes it takes some time – it just depends on what kind of a week we’re all having how fast questions pass through moderation and whether or not they need an answer.
This has happens to me, too. I figured long answers get stuck in moderation and of course anything about graffiti. Of course any post where I make a grammatical errors goes right through. I have seen many post now asking about stuck in moderation, so I don’t take it personal. I guess there are to many post and not enough time.
Sorry guys, looks like Mr. T gets busy for a good chunk of time and I’m helping as much as I can when I can. Anything that’s for him specifically or something I can’t answer I leave for the master.

hi tsto, quick question, since a few small updates, i have been noticing the word new come under some of my premium items, not just the new ones, the other day it was my white picket fence. today it was the mystery box. any ideas?
A lot of people including myself are getting the same thing. However there doesn’t seem to be anything “new” about any of the items. Just a random glitch. I learned the mystery box contents weren’t new the hard way.
Well since it’s a slow day I’ll share a classic YouTube video. Zak Kim playing the Simpsons theme on two guitars.
all of the short tasks will always pay out better than doing one long one.
I know this is pretty of topic, but remember In Whacking Day, you could unlock the whacking license to be able to whack 5 snakes in friends towns instead of 3? I think it would be cool if they put something into the game so you can collect 5 rents/taxes/profits ect. from friends towns.
Hi – it would be cool
Weather in Holland is great, little bit of rain but most temperatures are above 25 degrees celsius!
There was a storm here, too, but stopped just when the Blackhawks won the the Stanley Cup! Celebration in the streets of Chicago! GO HAWKS!!!!
i won the 200,000 jackpot twice in 3 days, it seriously helps in me catching up, ive since ive been on level 30 since i started the level 27 quests , almost caught up now!
Hey Mr.T or anyone who can help me out, my friends list has just completely stopped loading, it takes me to the screen with homer in the donut with the finger above him and the donut just keeps spinning. I then get a brief view of the friends list, which only shows other springfield and “Add friends this a social game…”, for just a split second, after which i get the retry screen. This has been happening all week. Started out when i could visit friends maybe once or twice a day if i got lucky, but now its just never. Any help on how to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys!
Hey – Still having issues? Try clearing your app cache, rebooting? Maybe delete, reboot and reinstall or it could just be a random server issue. Sorry I can’t be more exact friend. Let us know if anything changes.
Yeah i still am. Ill try the delete, reboot and reinstall thing. I dont know if its a server as friends of mine can access theirs. I’m not sure of the clearing the app cache because honestly i dont know how (ipad 2). But ill try the reinstall.
Alright so i tried a delete of the app, rebooted the ipad and then reinstalled the app. Still have the same problem
I apologize that my advice didn’t help. I’ll have to look into it and see if there’s anything else to try. Sorry friend.
Not a problem Mike! You don’t need to apologize, it ain’t your fault! Thanks for trying to help me
