Some of my friends and neighbors just don't log in every day and were a bit late in clicking the blue thanks button. This does NOT mean I have abandoned anything!
Hi Qivis,
Did you move any of the facilities in the contest to another farm or storage?
If you did then that is how you abandoned the contest.

I figured it out. I thought I had only moved facilities that were not part of the contest. It turns out I forgot to leave one where it was - The Peruvian Restaurant - that is part of this week's contest. I was about to erase the post above but you answered before I could tab back to the forum. Since I am moving to another apartment soon I probably would win something I already have plenty of anyway because I would not come in first or second.

Default Neighborhood Chains contest

I went to work my 4 facilities and I got this message:
"You have abandoned the contest for this week, nest contest starts next Thursday 12 AM EST". I worked them yesterday and I was in 3rd place before I worked them. Please help.

Hi pamlynnet

I moved your post to the thread for your problem.

Did you move any of this week contest facilities to storage or to other farm?

I'm sorry but if you moved any of them, then that is why you received that message.

Second time in 4 weeks I am competing against a neighbour, a friend has two of her neighbours in her's this week, has something gone amiss, or is this just a passing blip?

Hi Grumpdad,

No, nothing is wrong, it is possible to be competing against one or more neighbours. There's no rule that says you won't be. It just picks similar neighbourhoods to your own. In some cases it's due to there not being enough similar neighbouhoods as your own so you end up competing with the some of same ones again.

I entered the NCC but moved an empty one to storage (I had 2) as I wasn't using it and now I have been kicked out of NCC. I have put it back on farm but I think because it was empty I shouldn't be disqualified as I have all others working

HI rodkay,
I am sorry, but if you move one of the facilities in the contest then you are out of the contest. There is nothing we can do about that as it is controlled by the program. You get a warning message not to move them:

I never got that message otherwise I would not have moved it. Okay looks like I learn from my mistakes but maybe you can check out if that message is working? I have seen it before when I have tried to move my one and only facility but maybe it doesn't come up for 2nd one? Do my neighbours still get my points when I start facilities even though I am out?? I mean they have the points already from when I started it...they should not be at a disadvantage because of this. If I am not in it I should not be in their NCC either..thanks for listening. One final question..if I put all non active facilities into storage do they still count in NCC and if they are in storage and I put on farm will I get blocked again?

Hi rodkay,

As you are now asking about the NCC I have moved all posts about that subject to the thread for the NCC. We always try to keep related posts in the same threads so it's easier for everyone to find information on any particular subject.

We will look into the issue of the the message not being specific about the NCC when storing an NCC facility.

Your friends will still have the points you earned before you abandoned the NCC plus they also get their own points multiplied as you had participated before this happened so even if you only contributed 1 point from stating a single batch, the multiplying part still makes your participation of good value. They do not get any further points from you starting more batches in those facilities after you abandon the contest.

When you store facilities that you are not using and only want to bring them out if they are being used in the NCC, you will need to find a clear space bigger than the facility in order to get it back out onto the farm. However the NCC does not always recognise a facility that was put on the farm from storage after the contest week has begun. So the best thing to do once you have placed it on the farm is to open the NCC via your toolbox and make sure that it is showing up in there and then start a single batch in there BEFORE you start any batches using any other method.

Bring a facility out of storage does not make you abandon the contest only the storing of one after the contest has begun does that.
