Dear Farmers,

For the past few weeks we’ve been examining the data behind our efforts to curb automation services by restricting the maximum number of items that can be collected from the feed as well as throttling the ability for players to claim multiple items in a very short time frame. During this period the availability of feed items has grown tremendously and our players have collected more unique and interesting items from FarmVille feeds than ever before. Based on your feedback we’ve made multiple adjustments to the throttling and item limit systems and we will continue to do so as we examine the data. A further adjustment we’ve decided to make is that we have increased the maximum number of items that can be collected from the feed on a daily basis from 125 to 200, effective immediately. With this increase we believe we have achieved a very good balance for all of our players from this point onward.

However, if you are not using an automation program and you feel that you are being limited or throttled inappropriately we urge you to continue to share your feedback with us. Thank you all for your understanding, help, and cooperation.

Happy farming!
