FG Mart FAQ

 

Here’s a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) regarding the FG Mart page. I’m sorry to be impersonal about it, but I can only answer the cheese question so many times before I start banging my head on the desk. 😉 Click on a link in this list to be brought directly to your question – or feel free to read the FAQ in its entirety.

The answers:

1 ) How often is the FG Mart updated?

The FG Mart pages are all updated once a week on Fridays.

2 ) Why not more often?

The process is very manual for me, and can take me as long as 10 hours to do. I do this for fun. If I do it more often, I’ll burn out. If that happens, there wouldn’t be any more updates at all. I’ll occasionally update a few choice pages if I have the time and the spare links. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for the Friday update.

3 ) But I really need my free stuff.

Not really a question, but ok. At the bottom of the FG Mart page, there is a list of other Farm Town groups that share links. Visit them for more free stuff while you’re waiting for a link refresh on The Facegamer.

4 ) I clicked on a link and it just took me to my farm. Why is that?

Every free link has only so many times that it can be used before it fizzles out. I don’t know that magical number. How long it lasts depends on many people have used it, which I also wouldn’t know. When I started doing this, the links lasted a few weeks. Now they only last 2 days if I’m lucky. It’s the unfortunate price of popularity I guess.

You can squeeze another day or two out the links sometimes by taking a few minutes to clear your computer’s cache. There are some good instructions on Slashkey’s official forums, found here: http://slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=258262

If that still doesn’t work for you, I’m sorry but you’ll have to wait until the Friday update.

5 ) I need cheese really badly – can you help me?

Nope. All the links on the FG Mart are just gift links, such as what you would send to your own friends and neighbors. Since cheese doesn’t appear on the list, I can’t make links for it. What you CAN do is put a dairy factory on each of your farms to help with your cheesy need. You can’t put two dairies on the same farm – just one on each.

6 ) Ok, but how about mushrooms, onions or sheep? They used to be giftable.

Nope, because I can’t make the links anymore. The fact that they used to be giftable makes it worse. There are a very few old onion links floating around on the internet. They *look* like they work, but when you move them to your storage from your gift box, you get the message “0x inions moved to storage”. Meaning none of them were moved.

The rule of thumb is that if it appears on the Send Gift page in Farm Town, I can probably make them available here. If it’s not there, it won’t be here.

7 ) So does that mean that there won’t be apple trees, fish, or olive oil?

Correct. There will not be apple trees, fish or olive oil. No corn flour either. Just ask yourself “Is it on the Send  Gifts tab in Farm Town? You might be able to find a few apple trees on the other FT links that are listed at the bottom of the FG Mart page. I didn’t want to steal their links so I haven’t brought them to my website. That just seems rude.

8 ) Why do those other groups have some older links that you don’t have?

They’ve been around longer than I have.. and were able to save the links for some of the older stuff that I can’t make for you now. Of course, neither of us can make new links for retired stuff, so what you see there is all that’ll be there for things such as apple trees, autumn trees, and some of the holiday decorations. �And I didn’t think it’d be right to steal their links.

9 ) I really appreciate your work – how can I help?

Thanks for offering. There isn’t really anything I can get your help with, in terms of FG Mart. But please please please share your favorite pages from The Facegamer with as many friends as you can. The little blue share buttons [fb-share] are meant to help you share easily.

10) How do I clear my cache?

It’s a good idea in general to clear your cache every once in a while. Especially if you find that the links here aren’t working, or your game is acting buggy. There are some good instructions on Slashkey’s official forums, found here:�http://slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=258262 I recommend clearing your cache regularly.

11) I can only collect a few and then nada. What gives?

There’s a couple possibilities as to what’s going on:

1) You’re using Internet Explorer, which is one of the very worst browsers out there.I strongly recommend using a different type of browser. Firefox is a really good one, and Google Chrome is also nice. Chrome is the one that I personally use.

Firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/ Chrome:  http://www.google.com/chrome

Even if that doesn’t solve your problem, at least you’ve got a superior  browser out of the ordeal.

2)  Your computer needs its cache cleared. Recently, I took the time to troubleshoot the issues on ondividual reader’s computers. As it turns out, most of the people that said “Oh, I cleared my cache and I’m still having problems” ended up having no problems when I walked through the steps of cache clearing with them. Not that I’m bitter or anything. So I’ll just put it another way. Please clear your cache, AGAIN. The instructions are here: http://slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=258262

another helpful thread is here: http://r1.slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=341794

That one has information for clearing your adobe flash player’s cache, which would be the next step.

3) If you get a blank screen, it’s a problem on Farm Town’s end. Most of the time, refreshing the window over and over until it pops up works often.
