Oh okay, this will be my first post for the new year and it’s all about my ranting. Awesome! Just awesome, what do you think? Ugh! Let me tell you what’s really bothering me and some other people too. It was during the holiday season that I came to play Cityville, you know that new Zynga game on Facebook. Since I got a lot of time on my hands duringĀ  the Christmas break, I can say that I’m one of those Facebook users that got hooked on Cityville. It’s a pretty much nice game, because it is not just planting or farming (as we all know farming is sooo 2009 šŸ™‚ ), you can actually design the town or the city that you want to have, be a sort of mayor–those kind of thing.Ā  So even my almost 60 year old uncle is playing it. When Cityville was new, Samantha was ahead of everybody else, her being only on level 20, but now my dear uncle is way up. He just surpassed everyone.Ā  And almost all his children are into playing that game too. To level up easily, they have these multiple accounts to send each other gifts, so they level up fast. It was them that sort of influenced me to play a game diligently again (I only play Happy Aquarium and sometimes Mafia Wars now).

 

So what pisses me after a month (I think) of playing Cityville? It’s the notifications I’ve been receiving like almost every couple of minutes! I just can’t handle seeing a ‘red’ on my notification. It matters to me especially I’m one of those that is almost online every time on my Facebook. I tried evey possible ways on how to disable it.Ā  I google answers for it, but just saw same rants like mine. They said Facebook is still on a testing mode and I just hope Zynga too will just provide us on how to disable those notifications. Another thing is that I don’t kinda like the new Facebook profile, but whether we like it or not, FB will update your profile to their new format. Huh! Maybe soon ( I just hope so) that they will give us the options to have the power to remove that annoying notification.

 

Right now, I’m not into playing Cityville seriously (compared to my early days of being an addict to it). So these notifications is really a bother. As for occasional gamers like me, it really bothers me to see thoseĀ  notifications. While even writing this post, I can see new notifications from Cityville. Give meĀ  a break! I couldn’tĀ  just remove the game you know. So what to do? Just wait for FB and Zynga to hear the rants of their users. I guess :(.

 

Did I just greet you guys happy new year? I know it’s too late, but Happy New Year and advance Happy Chinese Year! And may we all beĀ  happy and prosperous.
