Prior to 2 updates ago all you had to do was tap "Thank" and your mystery gift was on its way to the sender. However now you have to click "Close" too, on another pop up that takes several seconds to appear that specifically tells you "Gift sent". It did not used to prompt you to do this.
So, they've added this I am guessing to let people know the act of clicking "Thank" is in fact sending a gift. However this new annoying feature is time consuming and VERY frustrating.
They should remove the "Gift sent" pop up. It adds nothing but frustration. I'm willing to bet other people are skipping this arduous process as well.
The mystery gifts I receive are 90% useless anyway. Why make us spend 5 times longer on a process that rarely delivers anything useful to the recipient.
I hear you. I'm not sure everyone in the thread is responding to your exact question. Yesterday I received probably close to 300 gifts because the day before I had asked ALL my friends for items. When I click "Thank" it usually takes at least 30 seconds of the "Please wait" window to come up and pinwheel, then the "Gift Sent" box to pop up. If I had done that for all 300 gifts then it would have taken me AT LEAST 2.5 hours to get through all of my gifts. So, needless to say, I didn't.
I also have a real problem sending gifts from my wall. When I try to multigift from the wall, my game crashes every time. When I tap the icon just once, to send only one gift, it takes 1-2 minutes to send. That is, if I don't get a "Connection Required" popup first. I've been struggling to just get through my wall requests every night.
I really do try to be nice to my friends, but if it means I have to spend 3-4 hours every night without ever getting to "play", then I just can't do it!
