Nov 2nd: LAmour wins our monthly themed contest! Read all about it here: http://gotmobile.freeforums.org/october-theme-garden-favorite-book-poll-t3088.html
Oct 1st:there is a problem with our system of weekly active symbols. With the release of ios7, there is limited backwards compatibility with the emoji keyboard. We have altered the weekly symbols for the next month to ensure the emojis that are in use are visible to all. We are working on a long term solution, in the lab. Please visit here for a list of Octobers active weekly symbols http://gotmobile.freeforums.org/weekly-active-player-symbols-t448.html#p55660

forum members not random invites! One new blitz scene added, Thanksgiving Pageant . TY Dory, for the pic :)
Nov 22nd: Chapter 28 released: Denmark's the Spot. 780,000 to open all scenes; you need an average of 1969 rep per square. The ONLY silver purchase buildings that meet the 1969 min rep requirement are casagwa ruins, ivy tower, & ivy wall. All one square buildings. Without buying gold purchased buildings, only a third of your wonders will achieve 1969, and you'd need to upgrade a hundred one square silver purchased buildings which would take months. What is Playdom thinking? We have a maximum grid size of 20x20; in the Facebook version of the game, by chapter 27, Amy tells us they already had a grid of 31x31!
Nov 18th: all decorations & artifacts can now be upgraded to level 5!
Nov 15th: Amy has stripped out more dialogue for the Plot Line - Dialogue Premium Scenes for Ch 18-23
Check it out if you've ever wondered what goes on the gold premium scenes that many of us never buy!

Nov 11th: New Premium Chapter released: Turkey Time (purchase price 40g - prices may vary)
Nov 8th: Additional dialogue posted for Plot Line - Dialogue , thanks Amy!

Oct 27th: Posted dialogue for chapters 18-23. It's linked under the top menu under "The Toolshed"
Oct 25th: New Chapter released: Chapter 25 Green Eggs and Nottingham
Oct 22nd: The problem noted below now seems to have been resolved.
Oct 19th - New Time Crystal Chapter Released: The Parisian Painter Part 2
Oct 18th: The message centre in the game is currently frozen; material requests cannot be accepted, nor gifts or new neighbours. Numerous support tickets have been filed with Playdom regarding this issue.
For future reference, you can find this link in the Upgrading Q&A section.
Oct. 12th: Chapter 24 released: Grave New World 20X20 Garden Expansion: $125,000 silver or 30g Edit: as of Oct 21st this purchase fee increased to 1,000,000 silver.
Oct. 9th: It has been discovered that the Mobile game only goes up to Level 89. One player finished Level 89, only to have the number roll-over to 1 and all new items locked.
Oct. 4th: New Premium Chapter released: Halloween: The Midnight Zone
It's offered for 40 gold (prices may vary).
New Blitz scenes : Prehistoric Caves, Day of the Dead, and Ancient Greek Games.
No expansion, no water tiles.
Oct. 2nd: Update in App store available, Ver 3.1
Fixes for Blitz mode and optimizations for smoother game play
Sept. 28th: Chapter 23 released: Apocolypse? How?
No expansion, no water tiles.
Sept. 26th update: you can request glass again. The materials to finish the time crystal buildings are still available, and while the time crystals do not show on the material request screen, just click on the purple time crystals next to your gold. You can't request from friends but you can buy more with gold if you want to.
Sept. 25th: Game was down for almost 10 hours today. Still no glass. Old time crystal materials are still showing. No new update, no new time crystal/regular/premium chapter, no expansion, no water tiles....all Mail erased. No idea what's going on.....
Sept. 24th, The Parisian Painter: Part 1 has expired. So apparently has glass.....while the crystals have disappeared from the mat request screen, the ballerina shoes, bicyclettes, carousel horses etc., all remain. Hope everyone that wanted the Louvre were able to get it! For those that were unsure of getting the chapter done in 30 days, I was on vacation for ten of those days, and buying nothing with gold, I still managed to get it done.
Sept. 21: Chapter 22 released "A Road to Eldorado". It's coming down to the crunch, without a grid expansion your garden must have an average reputation of 1456 per space, or you won't be able to open all of Chapter 22.
GARDEN EXPANSION & WATER TILES NEEDED!
Sept. 14: Chapter 21 released "Time Agents & the Temple of Doom"

July 30th: as victry was the winner of our inaugural monthly themed garden, she got to choose the theme for August. She has chosen "war and/or peace". So start your imagination working, and collecting items you'll need to compete, time is of the essence!
July 27th: Chapter 16 released: A Journey Through Maritime. Do you have enough reputation to open all scenes? Here's what's needed.
July 26th: New active symbols will be starting on Friday August 3rd. Many, in the Unofficial Forums, took a poll, and after carefully reviewing how we felt about using the active symbol "7" this month, it would appear that some players would like to try a MONTHLY SYMBOL and others would like to try a WEEKLY SYMBOL.
Should a player find it more convenient to change their symbol only monthly, then use the monthly symbols posted here. (from zazzis google.doc), for the month of August, it is %.
If a player wishes to change their symbol weekly, starting Friday August 3rd, the symbol will be @ and additional weekly symbols will be posted here.
Players are free to use one system or the other, you can request from whoever you want. It's completely open and transparent. Just a quick note on emoji's, if you are already using a Gift symbol in your garden name, please do NOT add the tent. If you are not using a gift symbol pls add the tent. The idea is for each garden to have at least one emoji so the iphone users can really spot the active players; but more than one is reduntant, and worse, it means no one can read your garden name (each emoji takes up 2 character spaces). Thanks, give the Unofficial Forums a visit and see if any of these changes interest you!
July 20th: Chapter 15, To Russia with Love is released. Do you have enough reputation to open all scenes? Here's what's needed.
Chapter 14, Camelot, released! Finally the leaderboards are fixed. Make sure you actually do the update in the itunes store or you won't see Sir Geoffrey.
