Ugh, realized this on my island this morning too. :( My seal popped up last night and I left him because I knew I couldn't get the dives all done in time. Now I can't anyway because when I opened it up I only had 7 hours left. BOOOOOOO. :cry: :cry: :cry:

This happened to me as well. The seal popped up while I was at work. It's a big no-no to be on your phone during working time and I only get 1 break so I decided to just wait and start this morning. I'm not setting an alarm to get up in the middle of the night for this game or any other. I clicked on the seal first thing this morning and I have 2hrs 56 minutes left in the dive. Oh well..the prizes for the later dives ain't that great no way so I don't feel as if I'm missing anything. For me, this is just another nail in the Paradise Bay coffin. :(

My dive popped up last night. Thought I would start it this morning. I only have 3 hrs left and I hadn't even started my dive. If this is how it is being ran now, then I am very unhappy. I don't live on this game. I have to work, and have other responsibilities. I can't be awake all night. This is nonsense.

Thank you for the swift reply Trademaster!
I am sorry I did not answer this question in the previous mail.

We are planning a overhaul of the dive system in the game, unfortunately until then you will have a few issues with the dives , we will do our best to try to keep it at a minimum.

Please do not hesitate to contact us back if you have any further questions or requests.

Have a nice day in the bay!

Well, it turns out the Strategy of controlling the clock to the next dive start by when we collect our final prize is no longer effective.

I had held off collecting from last weeks dives so that the 6 day 20 hour counters for my two games would take me to the mornings of Dec 27 and 29. That had absolutely no effect. Instead, when I went to reload mills last night before going to bed, I found both seals ready to dive. I Would have just sacrificed the final dives but, of course, the parrot figurehead had finally showed up, so I was up half the night starting seals. It seems pretty clear the counter started when the dive was finished, not when I collected.

Grumble, grumble. It looks like we will have to leave the prize uncollected for the whole week then collect only when we are ready for the next dives to start.

There last night, (late), gone this morning. :?

I snoozed, I loosed.

Oh well, at least I can't feel bad at what I didn't get, since I didn't even look. So, in my mind, I'm saying it was another volcano. ;)

Upside, there still will be one next week, and the week after that, and the week after that..........
