Deleting friends

Postby JanYOJ (111158537) » Sat Mar 16, 2019 4:59 pm

I had brought this up before a couple of years ago and nothing was done..it is very frustrating to have a Facebook friend that you communicate with regularly but does not play the game anymore. They won't block the game either...for whatever reason but have said they are never coming back to Yo. There is no way currently to remove that friend from the buddy list UNLESS they are removed from Facebook first. I don't want to do that. Does anybody else have this problem?? :sad:

We all have the same problem unfortunately. As far as I'm aware, there is no other way to remove unless we also remove from our friends on Facebook. I think it must be a Facebook thing connected to the game, rather than a problem with the game itself.

Very frustrating I know, but unless BVG go independent of Facebook, I think we are stuck with things as they are

i wouldn't bank on that either.... i had really old Yoville friends who not only don't play and haven't for years but when i looked at their FB they hadn't even been on there for years. i unfriended but i still can't remove from buddy list. also i have an old work colleague that i don't want to remove from my friends on FB but he hasn't played for 9 years! i can actually 'unbuddy' him funnily enough BUT he keeps coming back! i've unbuddied him about 20 times now! :shocked: :haha:

How do you 'unbuddy' them? I have friends that won't block the game and they don't play..at all and I would like something done about it. I don't think Facebook has anything to do with it as Queenie mentioned. I may be wrong.

Yes, we all have that problem. I even have a couple of people that show up as FB Friends in the game but I can't find their accounts on FB. They haven't played in years & their accounts are apparently gone, but I can't get rid of them. I've even tried going thru my FB Friends list, in the hope that they changed their names but that doesn't seem to have happened. I guess it's a glitch. :sad:

i think it's just because he has gone over a certain amount of years... i have friends who haven't played for 3, 4 & 5 years and yet i can't unbuddy them without unfriending. for some reason this one friend who is 9yrs can be unbuddied but like i said it doesn't stay like it. he will go and i check a few times and he has still gone then suddenly i forget for weeks maybe a month and when i next check hes back again! :haha:

I don't want to delete my deceased friends. Can't bring myself to do it for some reason. And I don't want to remove those who no longer play in case they decide to return. But with the 1000 cap, I'm forced to cull my list, since we have to add more for the gem events and such :dizzy: Such a pain.

oh wow... i go through mine regularly and unbuddy anyone who hasn't played in a week or 2 or more... these are just randoms though who ive added in the gem hang-outs. the ones i unfriended are really old yoville players in the days where we added each other as friends. most stopped using their FB about 5 or 6 years ago so very much doubt they will return. i keep my buddy list around 300 - 350 at the most :D

Hey Jan :hug: Facebook is the platform in which the game is played. That is why, when we friend someone on Facebook and they are a Yo player, they automatically show up on our Friends list. That is why I said, unless BVG go independent of Facebook, we could be stuck with this same problem.

On our buddy list, if we hover our mouse over a name, if it has the Facebook "F" this refers to being friends on Facebook (obviously) therefore, we need to remove them from Facebook before we can remove them from our buddy list. Those who are our "buddy only" and not friends on Facebook, have an X next to their name when you hover over it and they can be removed.

I don't think it was always this way, it just seemed to have happened at some point and we blinked and missed it :eh:

Theresa LOL .. I don't know how you manage to unfriend the guy who keeps showing up, that is just too weird - is he a bad penny ? :haha:

If you're still in communication with this facebook friend. Then you can ask your friend for help. While you removed them from Facebook to then remove them from yoworld and then add that friend back to facebook. :thumbsup: :D

It was so easy to remove the people that no longer play when we had the Neighbour's Tab at the top of the game without deleting them as a friend on Facebook! The only reason I think BVG removed that tab was because we could see how many coins and YC another neighbour had! If BVG would remove that info from the Neighbours List and put the tab back then we could easily remove those neighbours that no longer play! This would also be helpful for people to fill their crews in the Factory!

Here is an example of what the list looked like!

I'm hoping one day all of this will be rectified somehow without having to revert back to how it used to be. I didn't like that where everyone and their granny could snoop and see what you had o_o

I didn't like that part, either. On the other hand, it came in handy when you wanted to gift someone & needed to know if they had a certain item [clothing, earrings, etc].
