New Users & None Members
Funding is always an issue with our site so to encourage all none members & new users to help contribute I have enabled a free months trial. You will get all the features of paid membership except downloading the Auto Clicker. This is to show how much membership helps with your farming. I'm sure you will not be disappointed.
All proceeds from membership go to the running costs of our dedicated server....and maybe a cup of tea for me while I work ;)
A big thanks for all current members, without you our site simply would not exist.
Happy Farming to you all,

Feed Bonus Collector
As promised, for all my members, the new Feed Bonus Collector is ready for use.
Same principle as the Auto Gifter & Auto Bonus Collector, check all the boxes of bonus or ingredient links you would like, click the 'Click Here' link at the top & away you go....it will open a new window to collect an item, once collected it will 'like' the post so it does not show on our site again & then it will change the window to the next item.....and so on.
I had to refresh my browser a couple of times for it to work but after it seems to run great.
If you do have any problems please let me know.....enjoy :)

Auto Bonus Collector
For all my members, I have added an auto collection feature for bonus & ingredient links in the 'bonus' section of our site. Pretty easy to use, check each checkbox you would like the bonus of remembering the 12 hour rule of accepting bonuses from the same farmer, then click the 'click here' link at the top of the bonuses & a pop up similar to the Auto Gifter will appear & scroll through the selected bonuses :)
Any problems please let me know.
I will be adding the same for the 'feed bonus' section as soon as I get time to code it as its a little more challanging ;)

Total Links On Categories
A small change to help with server load & speed...
On each category, instead of counting all links for each gift, we now count the first 1,000 & if theres more then we simply display 1,000+.
It was taking too much time to load categories especially Products.
We have almost a total of 500,000 links & each gift in the product category was counting how many links there were out of the 500,000, there are currently 20 gifts in the product category so thats a lot of calculating which is increasing server load & slowing things down.
Should be much quicker this new method.
I have added the grand total for each gift on the gift page.
Hope that makes sense & speeds things up evenmore :)

I have successfully swithced the beta site to the main site & all has been running great. Server load is much better & the site is much faster & user friendly.
The old beta site now has now been removed so is no longer accessible.
Thanks to everyone who tested & sent feedback, it was very kind of you to take time out to do so.
I noticed a couple of the bonuses & ingredient links have -1 Days 18 Hours on them, please ignore that as they still work, was a typo in my code which is now corrected & in the next 24 hours or so they will dissapear.
HaPpY FaRmInG to you all :)

A Friends Great Cause
A great friend of mine is going on an amazing journey in support of cancer research.
I would appreciate it if any of you could like his page & maybe even donate a little something.
They are riding more than 3000 miles from Norwich, via the white cliffs of Dover, the Pyrenees, the Spanish plains, and a ferry over to Africa! Then turn round and do it all again facing the other way!
Server news...all seems to be running great.
I have been working on refining our site & improving scripts so an update will be coming soon :)

Reporting Links Improvement
I have made reporting broken links much easier.
Instead of reloading the whole page after you have reported a link & then having to scroll all the way back down to where you were, it will now report instantly & the page will stay where it is.
A much better solution for reporting broken links which is now working on Gift, Bonus & Ingredient links.
Please remember, I check every reported link individually everyday sometimes having over 500 a day & out of every 100 links only 5 or so are actually broken. Please make sure you havent used a link for at least 24 hours before reporting it broken. Time I spend on checking links could be time used to improve our site!!
Thanks all :)

Gift Errors Update
My apologies for the short outage, 1 tiny mistake in my code broke the whole site Ooops.
I have corrected the case sensitive type issue & have tested lots...all seems great again :)
Theres now a Fathers Day category for gifts & all 5 new items have been added,
HaPpY FaRmInG :)
Saturday 16th June 2012
Seems Slashkey have started adding gifts as well as bonuses with case sensitive types, Bananas now have some fathers day items with them lol.
I will have a lot of re-coding to do but I am on the case so bare with me :)
Thursday 14th June 2012
I have now removed the unknown links in the bonus section as I dont think we need them anymore.
It was bought to my attention that some bonus items were duplicating, i.e Okra & Apples, when you used the dropdown list it would give both instead of just one. I found it was the bonus type which was the problem, Okra was type 'at' where Apples was 'AT' so case sensitive.
It seems there were many case sensitive items which I was unaware of.
I have now fixed this error so all should be good once more :)

Welcome To You All
Well I thought was it about time we had a news section on our site due to the latset changes everyone has seen.
Recently Facebook changed a few rules for apps like Farm Town which disabled our much loved Turbo Gifter. This has caused us all much grief & trying to find another way whilst still funding the site has been very difficult.
As most of you know, I have succeeded finding a new gifting solution, our new Auto Gifter. Not quite as quick as the Turbo but still pretty good.
I have also added membership options as funding the site was a real problem after our Turbo was disabled, a big thanks to all who have joined so far.
A note to all my Turbo users...
I would like to express my gratitude to you all, you have been so supportive through this difficult time which means a lot to me. I have enabled 2 years membership for you all as a thankyou from my wife & I.
