hello, why does Farmer Joe pop up when I invite Whiskers123 to be my neighbor!!
If I understand the question, its because their Storm ID is different from their Farm ID.
Realfarmer is right. It's the same person.
You have two ways of being identified - your Storm8 ID, and in-game name.
The ID is unique and can be used to add people and for these Forums (my ID is Rachael98), but in-game names are sometimes the same. This is what you see when it says "Farmer Joe".
I hope that's not farmer joe's storm 8 id! Lol
