I need a 'are you sure button' !

Postby Melsm57 » Thu Sep 01, 2016 1:25 am

I wish there was a are you sure button for those times where your fingers slip. I just unintentionally used up 200 jewels when I accidentally completed rather than cancelled a boat trade! It took me ages to amass my 400 jewels and I lost half of them in one fell swoop .i can't be the only one surely who does the stupid things.

Totally agree! Nothing worst than accidentally accelerating something when you don't mean to. Have done it a few times with my fruit trees.

I accidentally used 385 on 9000 coins, I had over 150,000 and all mills bought. No need for the coins whatsoever

Deleting a boat trade costs 2 pearls, not 200 gems. Two hundred gems is when you want to complete the trade without the necessary resources, which in my game gives you a chance to back out. Slow down. Pay attention. The game already gives you the chance to save yourself.

Edit: Ok, I see the error in my response. You completed rather than dismissed. But still, the rest of my answer stands: when you hit the 'trade' button you get an additional screen prompting you to spend the gems or save yourself.

Totally agree. I've used mine to buy cotton. Loll. Cotton grows in seconds!

No you are definitely not the only one to have done something like that. It is frustrating when that happens. It took me ages to collect 30,000 coins which I was saving feverishly towards my Sushi Bar and I accidentally bought the fourth trading dock. I was devistated. I didn't realise I had done it. I noticed that my coins had disappeared and couldn't work out where they had gone until I noticed those darn seagulls merrily working away on that last dock! So now I move around my screen a little more slowly and carefully now so I don't buy something that I didn't mean to! I eventually managed to collect my coins again and buy my Sushi Bar. Yay!!

I just lost 385 gems!! I was playing until the wee hours of the morning to try and get through bonus tiers and fell asleep for a few seconds. Wake up to see " purchase successful". I immediately panic...thinking what did I just buy??? And then notice a lot of gems are gone, 385 to be exact! So mad at myself! It took forever to save up gems!

If it was an accidental purchase, you need to put in a support ticket from your game. *Sometimes* they arrange a refund and return of the purchased item. If you've made an accidental trade, there isn't much you can do about it.

We've all done similar things. Live and learn.

I did the same exact same thing once. It wiped out half of my gems. I was so mad. Now I am very careful, when I start to nod off I put the game away. Lol
