Example: you send out 100 requests on day one & receive your maximum of 20 that day, the rest (80 more) go out again the 2nd day to those 80 neighbors still left on that request queue. So 20 more answer that 2nd day, the 3rd day the 60 left will receive your request and so on, and so on.
The only thing that will change this scenario is if you send new requests any of those following days, either for the same thing or something else, then those new requests will override all the old ones (how ever many that may be).
And the merry go round continues again for how ever long those new requests stay in the queue.
This is one reason I do not send out more than 30-35 requests at anyone time. Too much left in the queue.
Even those timed goals that have the daily request goals can carry over to the next day since some times on the 2nd day I would only need a few more for the 3rd request or none at all. Some of my neighbors received the requests in the carry over the next day.
What is confusing to me though is what is happening to those players who are stuck on 19 or less & have the proof from their newsfeed that they have reached the goal. I have always been one to keep track of the responses recorded in my newsfeed since this awful snag came to light several years ago & never send a request to Stormie until or if that snag affects me. (Which it did 1 or 2 times)
And...also...why does S8 not do anything to remedy the situation since there are 2 simple fixes! Either lower the goal requirement from 20 to 15 for any & all requests ...or... simply increase the maximum received from 20 a day to 25! It's just so simple!
