This is a neighborhood for a hardworking, dedicated, helpful and layed back farmer who loves to socialize and chatting!
Whenever possible, only mark dead trees during a derby, when people are doing a help task. During the derby, don't revive any plants in the hood unless you are currently working on a Help task. Others, who are doing a Help task may need them in order to complete their task.
Always ensure that you will be able to complete the task in the time limit given. If you are in any doubt, choose another, more suitable task. Remember: Expired/incomplete tasks = Penalties.
Don't take any task unless you think you can finish the majority of it without the help of your team mates (with the exception of Help tasks). For example, truck tasks - if your barn is low in stock, truck tasks should be avoided. If you do take a truck task, focus on the orders you can fulfil yourself, without help. Fill those orders first, and complete as many as you can on your own, before considering asking your team mates for help. Remember, you don't have to complete every boat. You can send them away and wait for the next one.
In the case of boat tasks, where help can be requested, only ask for help once the boat has arrived and you know the quantity of each item required. Fill as many crates as you can yourself first, before you mark any crates you require help with. Once those crates have been filled, then you can request help through the farm chat for any additional quantities that you require.
During derbies, limit the requests that you make for items that aren't required for the derby task you are working on. This applies to the chat and NH trading (with the exception of expansion items or other tools). If you are opted in to the Derby, your first priority is to finish your tasks. Concentrate on completing those first. Other items, not required for your Derby task, can be produced or harvested by yourself, you can hire Tom, or you can search the newspaper. Our kind neighbours are always willing to help you out when short on an item so we aren’t saying no request at all just be mindful.
So if your wondering what that means when requesting in chat keep to a minimum and if it’s something not important then try to make it or look for the items you need. We don’t want neighbours to be taken an advantage of. But birdhouse requests, you can request anytime you want to no limit on that on in chat requests are asked to be kept to a minimum.
