It's been awhile since I've logged on and I found this thread interesting.  Can some of you share ways that you discovered in how to keep track of who you gift?  It was easy when I only had a few friends, but the list has grown and while I try to give to everyone (at least those who I can), the list of people always seems to get jumbled up and while I try not miss anyone, I'm sure I do.  Thus some best practices here would be very welcome.  Also does anyone know how long you are inactive before the icon turns red?  i.e. if I go away for a week vacation will mine turn red or stay green.  Just wondering if anyone knows that.  I'm 868554 if anyone wants to add me.  I'll be playing the seasonal events and try to play most days. Right now it takes about 10 days to get though my list (inefficiently)  thanks in advance.

initially, i only gave to those who gave to me, but that got messy.

now i just go down the list alphabetically and give to everyone (green) i can, but i write down all who gift me and cross off their names as i gift them. This way i don't miss anyone, though it may take a while to return a gift i have or have enough of to give.

i have noticed some are very generous and gift often whilst others are very infrequent and i must assume they have a vast list to get through. :)

I am a bit compulsive about lists, but some of this might help. My friends list is alpha by game name with ID # and Level. I mark every gift received or sent with a mark between days. (see examples below) I have 4 or 5 friends on each page with lots of space in between. When the page gets messy, I pull it out and start a new page with the same names. (That way I don't have to rewrite the entire list.)

During the game I can go down the list to see who I got a gift from that I haven't returned. Then the ones I haven't exchanged gifts for a while. I keep about 50 names on my list because more than that makes doing Event HOS hard to do. About half of the 50 gift fairly frequently. Some of the sleepers are only for events and/or CCs.


Name      123456  70       I $ R I I S R I |      $ R I S R I S R I I |     /    S I I R $ I R I S |  

Other      65431    108     / /  9/15  / X 

[Other = 10 days no gift, note on name "back 9/15", 5 days no gift, went red 5 days ]

These are for 20 days each

/ = 5 days, no gift, green. X = 5 days, no gift, red.

$ - purchased gift

S - Sent from inventory

R - Received

This is a simplified version of my list. Before I retired I did a lot of lists, spreadsheets, etc. for work, so I'm inclined that way. Also, I've seen so many posts from people annoyed about waiting for the next update that I make a point of not leveling up too quickly. The list helps me slow down.

Thanks.  I've never tried to be so detailed.  Gives me something to think about.

It does take time, but I just think of it as part of the game.

Good deal.  Just came through.  Glad to have you on board.

I keep it simple. I only gift players that gift me. It has worked out for me. I assume the others are event friends.

Hi, I make a list of my friends if I gift them I put \ beside the name and if they give back I put / across mine which gives it x hope this makes sense
