    How get a wrong sent gift back?

    Post  Sinclair on Sun Sep 30, 2012 1:42 am

    Hi everyone, something terrible happened to me recently. I wanted to return a marguarits cocktail to my generous friend whom i borrowed it from. When i wanted to sent it back , i touched the wrong person on my screen. That goes very easily and you dont get a warning whether you are sure. Has anyone of a you an idea how to get it back ( is there an undo button)
    Does anyone of you know a safer way to sent collection gifts? Thanks for all the help, I feel very bad about this.

    If you know who you sent it to by accident I would leave a message explaining the situation and ask for it back. If you don't know who you sent the gift in error, it is gone unfortunately.

    After having similar accidents I only send gifts from my manor. It is more time consuming going back 'home' but I'm pretty sure when you send gifts from the home screen you get a message confirming that you want to send the item that you don't get when at a friend's manor.

    I agree with Camille. Just explain your situation and I'm sure they will sent it back to you. I've been in this situation before:)

    Hi, thanks for your replies. I feel less stupid by hearing that this happend to other people too. I have an idea who i gave it to, so i tried your suggestion to ask it back. Just sit and wait now and hope for the best.
    One thing i do not quite understand. I did it from my home manor. I selected the item in the collection mode and pushed the gift button. Then i got a list with all my friends and had to pick one out. If you just touch a name very slightly its sent without confirmation question. Does this work differently with you or are there other ways to do this?

    Hi,
    This is what I do when I want to send a specific gift to a particular friend. Before you leave your Manor find the gift in the gifts section and leave it showing. Go to friend's manor, open gift section and you will see it there, no need to skim through and accidentally send the wrong thing.

    Hope this helps and you get your gift back!

    There is no confirmation question when gifting from home manor and selecting friend from list. Also, many players are not native English speakers and some speak very little English so, depending on the person, you may not get a responses just because they didnt understand what you are asking.

    rabrown is right, there are no confirmation questions (I've just checked). However when you are at a friend's manor scrolling through your collections it is very easy to tap the send button by accident. This is how I've managed to accidentally gift things in the past. It only takes the one incorrect tap.

    If you are sending the collection item from your manor - either via your collection box or the gift tab - an accidental tap brings up the tab with all your friends names. You have to tap on a friend before the item disppears from your collection.

    If I'm not sending a collection item from a Wish List I will only send them from my manor. I figure that I'd be very unlucky to do two accidental taps (one to select the item and a second to select a friend and send it). This method is more time consuming but I have found that doing it this way has stopped mistakes from happening.

    Before go to friend manor, scroll the gift collection item at position that you can see it.
    After go to friend manor, the gift collection item position still there.
    This my experience if anyone not same as me, please let me know ^^"

    Sending correct gift

    Another way--time consuming for giver and receiver-- is to ask the person who you are returning the gift to to put item on their WL temporarily. Go to their manor and gift it from their WL. Leave them a note that you sent it and they can update their WL again.

    I would ONLY use this method to RETURN an item to someone since they are expecting the item anyhow.

    I tried this a couple of times today and found this to be the best method of all! Thank you so much for posting this! Very Happy
