Can't accept friend requests, Simpsons Tapped Out

I can't accept friend requests in Simpsons Tapped Out (iPad).  I get alerts that people are adding me as friends but when I go into the Origin screen they don't show up and there is no way to accept them. What do I do?

Re: Can't accept friend requests, Simpsons Tapped Out

I'm having a similar issue.  Every time I go to "help" friends, they don't show up and I get the "cannot connect to server" error message.  It's really frustrating because I cannot complete my quest for Devil Flanders to trash friends housesha the weird this is, it only happens under mine and my daughters accounts.  My son is able play with minimal issues.  Please help, it's really stopping our progress.

I too, keep getting the "Can't Connect to Origin" server when I try to add new friends. Not sure if the requests are going through or not.

 

BUT, that shouldn't stop you from being able to complete the Devil Flanders quest to trash other houses. Every player - even those with NO friends - should have one token "Other Springfield" available to them. That Springfield grows at a rate similar to your own. It should have plenty of houses and trees for you to trash.

I am also having this problem. I have a large list of pending invites, but when I try to accept I get a server error report.

Me too! Is there a way to do it online, or something, rather than going through the game? I need more friends for a mission but can't accept any...

You have to go to "News" and then "Invites".

Re: Can't accept friend requests, Simpsons Tapped Out

I'm having an issue when I try to accept friends I get and Oops Error and can not add any friends, the list keeps growing.  I used to solve the issue by exiting and opening the app again getting the occassional server error.  It's becoming annoying to have to exit and enter and now can't add friends.  CAN someone help me with this issue on my iPad?

Re: Can't accept friend requests, Simpsons Tapped Out

I ACTUALLY FIGURED IT OUT 100%!!!!!!!! first things first you cant have more than 100 TAPPED OUT so if you have 100 then i cant help BUTTTT if you dont have 100 friends and still cant add anymore THEN HERE IS YOUR SOLUTION!!!!!!!!!!! i had the same sounding issue as everyone else, and no one could answer my problem, if this doesnt work for you i apologize but this worked for me and i had this issue for MONTHS

 

 

okay so you know how everyones always saying you cant have more than 100 friends.. they arent just talking about your tapped out friends they are talking about your origin friends.. i had 56 tapped out friends and another 44 origin friends that did not have tapped out!!! sooo what i did was i went into the game as usual > clicked on the bart and milhouse button > then i clicked on the origin button (the orange circle on the botton left of the screen) > then at the very top i clicked on my friends > then what i had to do was scroll down the list of names... at the very top it says Friend with The Simpsons: Tapped Out, if you scroll through the list of those friends you should come to another grey title saying Friends without The Simpsons: Tapped Out! > next what you have to do is click on a friends name that you want to remove from your list (you can remove friend from either list but if you want to get your Tapped Out friends upto 100 then you have to remove the from the 2nd group of names - (Friends without The Simpsons: Tapped Out) > to actually remove these friends you simply click on the friends name that you would like to remove > once you have clicked on their name click on the profile button (you may have to double click it quickly because the profile button doesnt stay up for long) > once you are in their profile you will see a + sign on the middle right portion of your screen > click that plus sign > then click remove friend > it will ask are you sure? and you should click the remove button!! BOOOMMMMM

 

Once you have done this you will have cleared up room for 1 extra friend to be added to your Tapped Out friend list > repeat the process as many times as you wish to clear up as many spaces for your Tapped Out friends as you want (upto a limit of 100 friends) > next simply click the news button on the right side of the screen > click the invite button at the top of your screen > and then click on any/all of the friend requests that you have > after you click on the friend request then press Accept and there you have it... PROBLEM SOLVED!!! i really hope this works for all you guys, this literally took me FOREVER to figure out but it feels so **bleep** good to finally have my 100 Tapped Out friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Can't accept friend requests, Simpsons Tapped Out

Solved!

 

I was using outdated hardware (1st generation iPad). I had all the latest software updates - I even uninstalled and reinstalled the app - but the problem of accepting new friend requests persisted.

 

I solved the problem by running the app on a different (and much newer) device - my cell phone (LG G2 running Android). I was able to access and accept the friend requests that were being notified on my home screen. I still prefer playing on my iPad, so now I have to toggle between the two - I accept friends on my cell phone, but play on iPad.
