FarmVille Turns Snowman Back “On” (For Now)
Posted on February 3, 2011 8:30 pm by FarmVille Freak FarmGoddess
Recently, the FarmVille buildable Snowman that produced Watering Cans when harvested was turned “off” by Zynga which explains why many FarmVille Freaks reported finding their Snowman 100% ready, but unable to produce any Watering Cans. No, this is not a glitch.
As you know FarmVille Watering Cans are utilized as water supplies for growing Mystery Seedlings. When the Snowmen stopped yielding Watering Cans, many farmers were upset over the time they spent building and collecting parts for the Snowman or the investment of Farm Cash when they assumed that their Snowman would always yield Watering Cans. However, we told you yesterday on FarmVille Freak that Zynga announced via their official FarmVille Blog that Snowman would stop producing Watering Cans and that the Orchards would be upgraded soon to yield Watering Cans.
Fearing a possible FarmVille drought and farmer backlash, the Z gods decided that we could harvest our Snowmen for another 3 weeks. They will also proceed with their plans for the Orchard. If you accidentally deleted your Snowman already, you will be able to get it back and will need to contact Zynga Customer Support.
From Zynga Community Manager, Stumpgrinder
“We’re about to make an official announcement about Snowmen, but basically:
1) Yes they are harvestable again (for another 3 weeks).
2) If you deleted yours, please contact CS and you can get them back.
3) Plans for Orchards are still moving forward.
Happy farming (or, um, watering)!” (Source: FarmVille Official Forum)
