I miss the time when new wildlife was introduced without being announced. There was a rush to the forums! I remember spotting my first robin - only there was no pic and no name just a white square!
I remember the outrage when the fairytale fairies stopped dropping fairytale seeds!
I remember before the topiaries and quests, you attracted what you wanted, when you wanted, and for how long you wanted.
I still attract what I want when I want and for how long I want! :-) I was one of the people who was happy when the fairies stopped dropping fairy tale seeds. I remember the longest forum thread ever probably, the “Bring Back the Nuts” thread!”
sometimes I think I am nuts,lol

I miss the nuts too, I remember when you couldn’t splash sooner than 5 minutes in a garden , it kept fairies from flooding the garden

It also led to unicorns being missed.
It was initially 15 minutes for some plants.
I remember the 5 minutes for watering but not the 15 minutes. I also remember having an Endangered critter missed because of the 5 minutes!
Yes, the delay in watering was a right pain when you were attracting short-staying wildlife. When people were water-fighting, some would water all of the plants they could, not realising (or not bothered) that it would block the garden from being watered at all for five minutes.
I can remember people trying to set up gaps before they'd allow people to water, to try and make sure that there was never more than a couple of minutes where a plant couldn't be watered. It didn't always work though!
Yes I didn't realise I would be blocking the garden from being watered. I actually thought I was helping... Luckily back then I wasn't blocked!
