    The truth is that after reading our boards they are:

    Increasing the skill speed.

    Increasing payouts.

    Changing avatars back to sims and money to simoleans.

    Selling simoleans really cheap and never buying them back.

    Removing the hide feature for stores only.

    Opening up their own fruit farm.

    Honestly, It is probably all my fault because I got bored yesterday and started selling my mystic trees for 110k each and they are trying to figure out how I got that money. And no, I don't have a million. At most 300k. I made a ton of pictures at some outrageous prices because I read to put them in bitmap and it costs more than jpeg, I found out later (thanks to a very nice SIM). All my fault. Where is the toilet paper, I want to cry for making all of you suffer. I will now slink off to get my coffee and wake up. Will come back to delete this post in a few.

    Ah! That's it! The dev team is consulting with their tax preparer and debating on whether or not rum, pizza, and coffee are deductable under the category "work expenses"!

    Starting to get very annoying.
    Closing down a game - not announcing anything about the reasons - for five hours?

    No other game could get away with that.

    Does this happen often?

    Shouldn't an announcement or something be out by now.?

    I think this is a reason...from the maintenance schedule information:

    EA-Land also has an optional maintenance window each day from 7:00AM to 9:00AM PST, during which time part or all of the service may be down.

    In addition to the above schedule, the maintenance period on Tuesdays may be extended.


    Since it is Tuesday, I think they've got themselves covered without need for further explanation.
