Buddies, Friends and Neighbors, Oh my!

Postby Sealine75 (105788113) » Mon Oct 07, 2019 9:37 am

I used to play YoWorld (back when it was YoVille) several years ago. I had Facebook friends who played and had friended some people in game. Slowly players dropped away and eventually I did too.

I logged back in recently and remembered how much I enjoyed decorating places. I was a little sad that I had cleared out several rooms and given lots away before I quit, but I did keep some of favorite rooms and items and that was enough to make me think I wanted to start playing again.

A lot has changed! I am slowly navigating and figuring out the changes. However, all the friends and buddies I used to have quit playing years ago.

My question is what is the difference between buddies, friends and neighbors?

Also, how to I get buddies so I can complete the storybook task of being in public space with one of my buddies?

Thanks for an information you can offer!

I've been searching and found some info on crew. Not sure I want to deal with that. I don't want to add a bunch of random people to facebook. It seems I can delete them after, but now the hot dog thing is confusing me. Also, trying to figure out if I do add people to facebook then delete, do they become my neighbors to visit and send/receive gifts?

Now I'm searching for Buddy info. I can see how to add buddies in game, but I don't want to annoy people by randomly requesting them as buddies. But for me, this is more a have fun decorating and dressing up not really a social need.

Since this board doesn't seem very active, I'm going to keep looking for answers as time allows. If you do stumble on this and have some insight, please share!

you have lots of questions.
Hopefully more people will come in and help you understand how to.
a neighbor is one who is also a fb friend or acquaintance who plays yoworld.
a friend is a neighbor or a buddy you love to talk to, be with and just hang with. that takes on all forms of things in real and in the game.
As example, I am a Christian but not all Christians I am able to be friends with. I am also a republican but not all republicans I can be friends with and I have democrat friends.
I think a friend sees past religion and politics. I really do.
a buddy is one you buddy up with in yo to get points. they can become friends and they are more than a regular yo player.
Normally my buddys add something in the game I love, like they like to decorate and i get inspired by what they say or do. We are not friends as that religious divide is there or the political divide but they are nice people you kinda like to be around. they are normally nice.
I only keep mean buddies if they are good decorators. ISNt that terrible of me? I mean they put a lot of effort in this game and work hard so to me they dont have time to be too mean. YOU KNOW?

you have to have neighbors for hot dogs or else they do not work. these only are exclusive to people on your list who are your neighbors. HOWEVER, you can buy them.
go to factory every 5 hours and get hot dogs off fb collect hot dogs. for me I make 3600 a click in the factory with full hot dogs and 4 crew. the crew is from your fb real live players.

i tried to condense.

Thank you, that is very helpful. I am trying to decide how much I really want to connect with people on here. It was great when I had some real life friends playing, but that is gone now so it would be nice to talk with people who also enjoy the game.

Currently, I really love to decorate rooms so I am trying to build up coins so I can do that. There is so much more stuff in game now then there was when I played before. I'm sure it will take me a while to figure everything out. I really appreciate you taking the time to give me all that information :-)

Hi Sealine!

I too have played and been on and offline: my friends who once played are now all gone as well. There are some updates to the game but once you figure out how to use them all, they're pretty helpful.

Among the most helpful new tools for me has been the auction house, found at the bottom of the screen by clicking on the gabble icon. The forum seems like a nice tool as well, and the people here try to be very helpful. Also, yoworld.net is available now for item searching. I found when coming back after a while, it was easier for me to be duped into paying more for items than they're worth. This page provides you with a decent guide on items and their worth for the auction house and the events people post.

Welcome back! :bye:

Thank you so much for the info on yoworld.net! I have a few older items that I was thinking of selling and I had absolutely no idea what would be a fair price. Plus I may want to buy some stuff down the road. That site will definitely come in handy! I may even be brave enough to try to auction house soon :)

three off sites to visit for inside info.. So much work went into all of these.
You can look up players and Id's too. I love that feature for secret gifting but so far my gifting has not been secret.. I keep myself in the constituents of rules so it is very difficult to do that and do things secret. 1 account plus real ID that is my main rule.
hint to you.
if you add folks with more than one account, expect yourself to be stalked and trolled.
I utterly hate that kind of gaming. its gossipy, back bitting and kills us humans with judgment and anxiety.
3 great sites and so appreciated I suggest you please bookmark these by hitting your ctrl D and put it in an easy location to find.
https://yoworld.info/home
https://yoworlddb.com/
https://yoworld.net/items

Also about AH- I do not mind paying a higher price at times and expecially If I know it is a very nice item. Some of these players have held on to items for years and it kills them to let it go. SO a value is set with what it goes for. Sometimes players put in and not want to sell but they want to see the cost of it so they put in millions so it cant sell. they only want to see what it is worth. Maybe they do not know of these 3 above sites. I dont know.. Wish Yoworld would put in these sites as look up places.
Also there is a fb page of this Yoworld and although I have not heard from them in ages, it also is a good place to add to your pages of likes.
Please be aware of "fakery pages, on facebook. try to stay within the game itself and not venture off.. BVG will not help you if you get hacked and many do by clicking bad links.

Here is some good advise. Never put in a password, gift info out. FB NEVER ASKS for you password. If you log out and log in , it does some sites send you to a fake fb page that looks and feels like fb and asks for a pw. it is very difficult to recognize. if you are ALREADY LOGGED IN. common sense says you do not need to log in again. Right?
Its ridiculous what folks do for these cute things in here.

Thank you! I had added the sites you mentioned to my favorites. I will definitely be careful and err on the side of caution. Friending people on Facebook that I don't know just to get friends and neighbors in game is my biggest hang-up!

I didn't even realize you could have more than one account on here so that will be something to watch out for!

I had someone help me in the game when I was a noob. I friended her in fb. With me having physical problems and I had just had a heart attack, I was weak, not thinking well. It took me a long time to stand up from a sitting position.
Yoworld (yoville) helped me to socialize and it was a very good way to keep me going.

I friended a lot of people from the game and I had no clue they had alternate accounts.
I did love and still do love that person. Have not seen her in years and years. All I know is i have way more trust issues then I had then and I advise against adding people from any game or anywhere unless they are real life.
in the event a platform could be made that would deem this safe, then I would add people and strangers again. Right now, fb says it is not safe and to keep out account safe is to not add strangers. FB was designed to get families and friends together not have a hatefilled political platform. People have used fb as a way to bash their relatives and i think fb needs monitors to put people at risk in a more secure area, like seniors, the sick, children, the vulnerable. They need to supervise thier platform. there thats my humble opinion.

Welcome back to YoWorld... I too left the game back when I was only level 27 I believe... can't really remember... I came back and the game was called YoWorld now and I noticed a lot of awesome changes that I enjoyed. I made new friends through here... The Forums... I was welcomed back to the game by a lot of great people who are still my friends in game... You don't need to have them on your Facebook to add them on the game... I ended up bumping into some by accident in the game like Nick and some others so I added them... I also went to some events in game where I met some others and added them... if you want to add someone from the Forums in game you can meet up somewhere and add them... When I came back to the game I still had on the beginner YoVille well now YoWorld gear and had tried to buy hair but didn't realize it was hair that only lasted a short while... Someone was kind to me and gifted me permanent hair because I posted asking about why the hair I bought didn't last long and I still have that hair that was gifted to me. Also a lot of people host Give-aways in the Forums that might interest you where you could be lucky to win something like an outfit or whatever. I am looking at your YoCharacter and if you don't mind would it be okay with you if I gifted you some things to give you a start? I'll just need your apartment link to do that... When I left and came back I discovered I enjoyed decorating my homes LOL Anyways... Welcome back!

so here is how you can get her apt link easily
see your number by your name?
it is on top or by the side.. that is your ID number in quotes. copy your number.

Now.. go to this site and paste it in there and it generates the apt link.

https://yoworld.info/extras/apartment-link-creator
this is the easy peasy way for me

the hard way is to go to my own apt eye and copy my own link and replace the ID numbers with the id number of where you want to go. Again, the ID number is by the player name on top and at the side.
Its a lot more simple to do it by going to Yoworld info, instead.

be sure to bookmark the above links I gave.
there were 3 of them. go to them and bookmark them. ok?

HI Seeline,
Can you trade? Trading is only certain levels now.
It looks like your apt has a telport door. Is the other home your home too with the marble fireplace?

So using the link generator, I got this https://apps.facebook.com/playyoworld/i ... -105788113

My apartment does have teleport door that goes to my penthouse (one of the few things I spent real money on last time I played). That was my favorite place so I kept it mostly decorated just in case. I'm working on decorating the rooms I cleared out now. I am kicking myself for getting rid of a lot of my stuff.

While I certainly wouldn't turn down any gifts, I kept a lot of my favorite things so I'm not starting with nothing. Plus this go round I joined the lowest level of VIP. I want to have some YoCash. And I am really looking forward to getting hair this time, but some of the hair is temporary!?! I had no idea! I'm hoping the styles that go for around 18 yocash are permanent!

Is there any danger in adding buddies in game? I'm trying to complete the storylines and have to be in a public space with a buddy to finish chapter 3.

Thank you so much for the warm welcome and all the helpful tips!

add your buddies as many as you like.
I would organize my buddy list
Your buddy list on the right is now organizable.
I think you can have up to 10 catagories.
As suggestion you can put
Friends
Maxing events
VIP Favorites
Trading friends
special people.
Great decorators
etc etc etc
I put absentees or MIA if over 2 weeks gone. Although you still can get gifts when you send to the non players I kinda like to keep healthy room for live players.
drag and drop them in your categories.

Thank you Isla! I sent a message back in game, but wanted to thank you here as well. I really like the brown hair (much more my normal style), but will probably rock my green for a bit since I like it with my current outfit. Also really loving the jacket and boots, but hanging on to those for down the road a bit :D
