Default Where to find your FarmTown USER ID

Where to find your FarmTown USER ID.

Everyone can use this method.
Use this method when you only have one farm
Use this method if you are unable to load the game.



Your USER ID number is below the game screen when you load your game.

Scroll down the page past the yellow box under your farm screen and look for the long number just after "Your USER ID number is: ....... "


This is an example of what it looks like, this users ID is 00000000 , YOUR number will be different and may be longer.

Make a note of that number to create a link to your farm. You will also need to provide that number when requesting help in the forum when your farm data needs to be checked.


If you are unable to load the game, Your USER ID also shows at the very bottom of the Facility Wall Requests and Other Wall Requests pages.

Default Use the Farm Selector Manager to get your farm link

Use the Farm Selector Manager to get your farm link:



You can only use this method when you can load your farms AND you have more than one farm!

This method requires a keyboard and using keyboard shortcuts.


It's another way to get your farm link for a friend or to add it to your post when posting in the forum when you don't want your farm link to show in every post.



STEP A: Log into the Website using your Slashkey website registration details and load Farm Town.


STEP B: Click on your Toolbox to open it.

STEP C: Click on the Farm Selector Manager to open it. A window will open showing you the names of all of your Farms.


STEP D: At the bottom of that window Click on

A brief notification in white lettering will appear then disappear.



STEP E: Click on the name of the farm you want to copy the link to and a box will appear showing you the farm link for that farm.





STEP F: When you see that box appear, to copy that link you need to use your keyboard keys.
The common highlight method to copy the link will not work in this area!


Windows Users press CTRL and C keys on your keyboard to copy the link.

Mac Users press the (Command/Cmd) key ⌘ and C keys on your keyboard to copy the link.

The CTRL and Command keys are usually to the left or right of the space bar on most keyboards.

When you have copied the link, click on the red X to close the box.




IMPORTANT!!! - BEFORE you copy anything else! Go to where you need to post the link.

In the forum you can post in areas like the Quick Reply box at the bottom of open threads in Neighbour/Buddy Requests, Help and Support threads and the latest open New Release threads.
This thread is for information only and is closed for posting.

Example of a posting box in the Forum:




Click inside the message box. To paste the farm link:
Windows Users press the CTRL and V keys on your keyboard to paste what you copied.

Mac Users you press the (Command/Cmd) key ⌘ and V on your keyboard to paste what you copied.
When you have pasted your link, you can then add your message to the reply box and then click on either Reply or Post Quick Reply to post your message.

Default Putting your Farm Link in your Forum Signature

Putting your Farm Link in your Forum Signature.

If you prefer not to find your farm link and paste it every time you post in the Forum
you can add it to your Forum Signature so it shows in every post.

Your own FarmTown farm links and your own Facebook profile link can be put in your signature.
Do NOT put any other links your signature!



  1. You will need your farm link!
    If you do not have it yet use one of the several methods listed previously in this thread to get it, then return to this post. There are also links at the bottom of this post that will take you back to the one you need.


    Top left of the Forum click on User CP.

  2. Click on Edit Signature which is down the left hand side of your screen under the Settings & Options section.


  3. Paste or type your link into the Edit Signature box. Example of what you could type in it:



  4. THEN scroll down to the bottom and there are 2 options:

    • Preview Signature will let you see what your signature will look like before you save it.

    • Save Signature will save what you typed into your Signature



Now you know the basics, if you wish, you can create links that would take you to a few specific farms and add those to your signature.

Here's how:
  • Either get each link for a specific farm using the Farm Selector Manager and paste those, one at a time, into the Edit Signature box making sure there is at least one clear space between each farm link OR at the very end of each link you can click Enter on your keyboard so the next farm link is underneath the first one.

    You can use the Preview Signature to see what it will look like before you save it. If you use Preview your signature will show above the Edit Signature box.

    When you are done remember to click Save Signature.


  • OR if you want to manually make them you can copy the farm link you made in Create your Farm Link and at the end of the link, after your ID number you need to add a little more code at the end which is &farm_ix=Y

    Examples:

    Your farm link you made previously, looks like this, remember, you replaced the red 0s with your ID numbers.

    Farm Link:
    Code:
    https://apps.slashkey.com/farmtown/play/?farm_id=000000
    What you add at the very end of a link will make the farm link go to a specific farm.
    Remember no-one can visit a Private farm so any link to a Private farm would take the farmer to one that was not Private.

    A specific farm link to a default farm can be like this (again your ID replaces the red zeros)
    There are NO spaces after the USER ID number:


    Your Farm Link would then look like this for your default farm:
    Code:
    https://apps.slashkey.com/farmtown/play/?farm_id=000000&farm_ix=Y
    Y at the end means your default farm, no matter how many times you change which farm is your default farm.

    For a different farm just change the Y at the end to...

    0 for your 1st farm,
    1 for your 2nd farm,
    2 for your 3rd farm,
    3 for your 4th farm,
    4 for your 5th farm
    and so on.

    Make sure you leave at least one clear space between each link you put in the Edit Signature box

    OR at the very end of each link you can click Enter on your keyboard so the next farm link is underneath the first one.

    You can use the Preview Signature to see what it will look like before you save it. If you use Preview your signature will show above the Edit Signature box.

    When you are done remember to click Save Signature.



NOTE: Your signature can NOT contain more than 500 characters so you will NOT be able to fit many links for yours farms in your Forum Signature!

Default Requesting your Farm Town Start Date in the forum

Requesting your Farm Town Start Date in the forum

You need to be a member of the forum and logged into your forum account to make a request.
We ill need your FarmTown USER ID to check for you.



If you have reinstalled the game.

Your start will be showing the date you last re-installed Farm Town.
You might be able to find an earlier date IF you have been a member of the Forum since or close to the date that you first started playing.


The date you joined the forum shows in the Mini Statistics of your Forum Profile and in the top right hand corner of any of your forum posts so may be closer to the date you first started playing.

Examples:






If Neither of the above methods work for you, you can post a request in the Help and Support Section of the forum in the Thread titled Start date.


To be able to check this for you we will need your FarmTown USER ID. Please remember to put it into your post.


Click on this link and then Scroll to the bottom of the Start Date thread and post your request in the Quick Reply box:

https://r1.slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=351570


Remember: If you have ever deleted the game and then reinstalled it, we can only tell you the date you last reinstalled the game.
Each time you remove the game it resets the date.
