Hey everyone, we know you have been asking for this for quite some time and we have an early Holiday treat for you all! Beginning today, you will notice some of your older Pending Invite Requests disappearing. This is because we have set all your existing Pending Invites to begin expiring. This will affect all games which currently have the Neighbor feature.

Additionally, any future invites after we added this feature will have a timer of only 7 days. You won't see any visible countdown, but they will automatically be removed from your list once they expire. We hope you all will enjoy this new feature.

As always, please report any issues you may encounter immediately. Enjoy! :)

Great news, after I realised I had pending refused to add anyone else for fear or being left short. Thanks :)

Does this include iMob? I had several pending invites which all disappeared today without warning. I was saving them until I was a bit stronger. If I'd know they were going to expire, I would have done something about them sooner. I'm not a happy camper... a little advanced warning would have been nice. Thanks.

The pending invites are the ones that show up in your game where someone else has not accepted your invite.

Are you talking about pending invites that you have not accepted from others?

Not cool at all. Pending invites was the quickest way to access other accounts. Now we have to do it the hard way. Scrolling through lists >:(

Yes, there were several I had yet to accept from others... 100 of them. And now they're all gone.

Looks like when the pending invites are removed from the games, they will also be removed from the list you have not accepted yet.

Going forward, these now will only remain in your list for 7 days so make sure if you would like someone to be your neighbor that you accept their request within 7 days.

Yes, I understand that, and will keep it in mind going forward. But there was no notice, so I had no reason to expect they would disappear. So I essentially lost 100 mob members without warning.

Can we get some way to know when someone last played to make it easy to weed out people no longer playing? Or a "deactivate account" option when people stop playing?

Is this pending invite expire for all games? If so I am so glad. After all if someone ask to be a neighbor it shouldn't take them that long to accept. Ty TL

I am so happy to have my year old pending invites erased.7 days is long enough to accept you're invite,if it takes that long to accept someone's invite you are probably not a good nbor to have.Thanks team lava keep up the good work

I am so HAPPY that this issue has been addressed and pending invites will disappear. After all they tend to be people that enter the game, ask to be invited and then leave the game. Thanks so much!

I am glad they finally did this after emailing them that i had several pending invites that was never accepted for MONTHS. Now only they can make gifts in your gifts box sent by neighbors expire. There are some gifts that are not useable and i'd like to get rid of them. TL should consider expiring gifts ;) or at least give us the option to delete them

I disappointed. What if Im on vacation month or even two weeks? Or reversed situation? If you doing such useless things, plz change period at least month, plz. Also recently we can.t see invited player already or not - I саn send invites 5 times in a row and it says "invite sent" instead of " you already invited player to....".

my dear, this is not a useless thing at all. This is something that has been requested over and over again by players, I suspect, from as far back as the game has been in existence! I am quite happy that this has been implmented. As there is never a shortage of players needing neighbours, I do not see why your going on vacation for a month and missing out on a few invitations will be a problem. If you need neighbours when you get back, you only have to come to the forum and go to whatever current "ADD ME" thread that there is. You will be able to pick, choose and refuse from the list.

I just discovered that if you click on a name and select View Profile it lists the last time the poster was active in the forums. While this doesn't work in game, it helps to see if someone you see here is still active in the forums. Hope this helps a small bit. I came searching to find out what happens to unanswered pending invites and am happy to find my question has already been answered. I joined after TL instituted this change so I never encountered a problem, just curiosity. Thanks TL!

How is it possible to have a setting so that others cannot send me an invite? I have so many neighbors already, and I get irritated when my game locks up and then crashes when I'm trying to complete a task. It usually does this when I receive something in NEWS that I need to respond to.
If I meet someone I send them my id when I choose to do it.

GinettaZ
02-10-17, 07:36 PM
Also, I don't like the sign in using Facebook, Twitter or Google... why can't I just send one here and receive messages since we already have it here.

And I tried to read messages in my inbox and cannot get in.

This has not worked for me since shortly after it was implemented. I did see it work for a short while but now I se the lost of people that I invited, who have not accepted/declined, grow longer and longer. These folks all said that they would accept my invitation but suddenly stopped playing so although I have asked them to Accept/Decline, they obviously are not there so they can't do it. I would greatly appreciate it if this feature would be fixed so it works again.

No at this time there is not an option to delete pending invite

Before sending invite you may want to chat with the person first
To make sure they really want to be NBRS before sending an invite

Has this function been added yet? I have 2 pending invites which are now inactive players, and I know this counts towards friend total. Can the invites be deleted?

Pending invites should expire after 7 days. How long has it been since you sent these out?

Even if you talk to them, which i don't do - i just send the invite and be done unless it wrong. i send the invite (get a other person) i say that it wrong, but they never give the correct ID (same with the other people on there wall) they say it 2.

But i have invite from my list from almost 2 year ago. They clear at time but when it happen again it stay for LONG time.

But some also go after a week of pending.
