I’m Afraid It’s Goodbye….

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE FANS AND FRIENDS OF TAPPED OUT DAILY

Dear Friends,

It seems like just yesterday I was sitting at my computer following the demise of tstonews wondering what to do next. Wondering, where I could get the information I needed to play the game to get the most fun out of it. Then I thought, well why don’t I set up a website? Tapped Out Daily was born out of this idea.

So I set out on my way to setting up a website that was in the same vein as tstonews, only better and more regularly. I wanted it to be a friendly, funny place where fans of the game could come and express their views fairly and without criticism, because of you, the fans, and now friends – this was made possible and then surpassed.

This site has been in operation for almost 2 years and in that time I have covered some of the games best (and worst) moments.This site went live on August 11 2013 and it’s been nothing but an amazing experience since then. It is because of you and your dedication to this site that has made this journey possible.

But I am afraid it’s time for me to say goodbye. Know that this is not my choice, Know that I am being forced to stop publishing articles on this site by a third party. Know that if I could continue to report on the game for you, I would jump at the chance. I will miss you, your opinions and the conversations that some of us would have in the comment section of some articles.

I have sent the last month and a half try to come up with a compromise that would allow me to continue but sadly no deal could be reached. The site will remain open in the sense that you will still be able to post and find friends and access EA’s official support centre using the menu bar above.

Although I will no longer be able to post here, feel free to find me on the EA forums, username alzo93, and send me a PM if you’d like my help with anything. I may set up a new site on another platform, but I will need some time to think it over first. Should I decide to do that, I will put it in my sig on the EA forums.

I will not end this letter with goodbye as it just seems to ‘final’ to me, instead all I will say is, until the next  time.

Updated Menu Bar

I’ve updated the sites menu bar with a new tab called ‘Contact EA’. Clicking on the link will now take you directly to the Simpsons dedicated help section and give you the ability to message with tech support to try and resolve any issue you might have.

If you have any other suggestions on how I can improve the site, drop a comment below and I’ll see what I can do!

The End Is Nigh!

The ‘Clash of Clones’ event is finally set to end in less then a week, I don’t know about you but I cannot WAIT for it to end. In my opinion, this event, although very well executed and had a feature I’d been hoping for for a while, was way too long! What do you think is next for us, I for one am 85% sure that Halloween is next and it will, of course, be amazing if the last two were anything to go by!

SIDE NOTE: I’d like to apologise for not posting/playing very much since the end of the week but personal circumstances got in the way. Not to go in to too much detail, it involved a possible broken foot, and a house with no power. You have no idea how awful it is being without tech and TSTO. Sadly, this doesn’t look like it’s going to be fixed today either but I will keep you updated as per how I will be posting in the future if this power issue drags out for much longer.

Happy Birthday To Us!

I have some great news to share with you guys, this day one year ago I created Tapped Out Daily! In the beginning I mostly just posted ‘Should I Buy’s?’ and info on old events. But look at what we have since become! Of course none of what is available today would even be here without readers like you so I just want to say a big thank you to all of our readers and to the guys you don’t see, the one responsible for moderating all of your amazing comments – so thank you guys! I’ve had a blast reporting on updates, bugs and glitches over the last year and I look forward to continuing that tradition! Have a great day everyone!

A Quick Heads Up

I just wanted to let you know that there will be a bit of a lull in regards to replying to comments this week and next as my end of year college exams started today so I’ll need to divide my attention between here and there. Marc is also pretty busy for the next while too but we will try to respond to your questions and comments when its reasonable enough for us to do so.

I will continue to post during this time so you still get all of the regular updates that your used to getting! Site redesign has taken a bit of a back seat for now but come the end of next week, it’ll be in full swing again!

Thanks in advance for your understanding!

REDESIGNED: The Episode Tie-ins Page

Fotor0328204734TheDayTheEarthStoodCool

I’ve redesigned the entire ‘Episode Tie-ins’ page. Each episode tie-in has its own dedicated page that you can access by clicking on each of the new custom design images, such as the one above. The only one not to have a link yet is the 2012 Treehouse of Horror one because that will link to the event page, which isn’t done yet. To access all this new stuff, click on the ‘Episode Tie-ins’ button on the menu above now!

What I’m Working On Right Now

The site redesign is going well and more event pages have been completed and are ready to be released and I’m also working on a number of other pages that I hope to have ready by the end of the week. Below is a list of pages that are complete and are ready to be released as well as those I hope to have ready soon. If all goes according to plan, I will be able to release these pages this Friday. There’s also info on some things that are in very early development and more info on these will be provided soon.

Pages Ready for Release

  • 4th Of July Event and all associated content
  • Thanksgiving 2012 and all associated content

Pages Near Completion:

  • Halloween 2012 and all associated content
  • Unreleased Content Page
  • Updated Episode Tie-ins Page
  • Krustyland Page
  • Squidport Page

Early Development

  • An updated and more comprehensive New Player Guide, included will be all the ways you can earn doughnuts in the game.
  • Level Guides, this will replace the out dated walkthrough and level-up dialogue pages. Included will be the content and walkthroughs for each level on their own dedicated page instead of having them all on one page as they are now.
  • A list of all the characters in the game, a while back a few people asked for this list so I will compile it and publish it in due course.
  • An updated Character Sets page and a page for each individual character and their tasks.

More info on these pages will be provided soon!
