HOW DO I FIND ALL THE TEXT ART THAT PEOPLE USE IN THEIR POSTS IN GARDENS

There is a section in the Fairyland Forum called ASCII Art, which contains threads detailing how to create your own, and where to find ready-made artwork to use (just copy and paste them into posts).

HOW DO I SEND MYSELF A LIMITED EDITION PLANT

The easiest way to send yourself limited edition (seasonal plants), without relying on friends to continually gift them to you, is by accepting one gift from a friend – copy the website link as soon as the gift has been placed in your garden. Paste the link on your back wall, or into a Word document, where you can save it for future use. Remember that the back wall is not a safe source for storing information, as the developer routinely clears all back wall information (if it has become greyed out – after one month). Unless you are disciplined at remembering to re-copy your back wall posts, so that they remain active, it would be best to store the link in a Word document (or another reliable source).

You will now be able to re-use the link by simply changing the gift code for whichever plant you would like to place in your garden (as long as the seasonal gift is active). With this link, you will not need to rely on a Facebook Fairyland friend to send you gifts. The link contains your Facebook ID, the Facebook ID of the friend that send you the gift, as well as the gift code (see the list of available Fairyland gift codes below). The link will look similar to the following, and cannot be used by anyone else, as it is specific to your Facebook ID only:

If you do not have a gift from a Fairyland Facebook friend

The information herewith can be found at the The Fairy Garden site: http://fairygarden.weebly.com/self-gifts.html

Please use this method only if you have no Fairyland Friends that can send you seasonal gifts.

Using this customized link will bring you as many seasonal gifts as you wish, but remember that, being seasonal, only some of them will be available at a certain time of the year.

For the link to work, you’ll need to get the Facebook ID of a friend that plays Fairyland. There’s a simple way of finding that out and it’s mentioned below, if you scroll down the page a little bit. The same way can be followed to get your own Facebook ID, if you need it to find out your praecocia pots or alchemy/herbalism recipes.

Once you have the ID, simply add it at the end of the following link (the number appears behind uid= will replace the number that is shown in red in the link below) and you’ll get the desired seasonal gift:

http://apps.facebook.com/fbfairy/req.php?z=0&reqtype=5000&ts=0&from_uid=12345678

The link above (with the correct Facebook ID at the end) will give you the Christmas Tree seasonal plant. If you wish to plant another one, simply replace the 5000 code from the link with the code of the plant you want. You’ll find the full list with the codes at the bottom.

If you don’t know which of your friends play Fairyland, you can easily find out through the Gift Shop. Simply go and select a gift and click ‘Proceed To Send’. Once the pop-up shows, select ‘Fairyland players’ (as shown in the picture above) and all your friends that play Fairyland will appear in the window. Then write a name from that list in the Facebook search bar and click it once you’ve found his/hers page. From there, simply follow the two steps from the following image to find out his/hers Facebook ID for the link to work.

Short Links for Seasonal Plants

There are short links that work when a seasonal gift is active. This link allows you to click on it, and place the plant directly into your garden, without having someone send it to you as a gift. Not all of the seasonal plants in Fairyland have this particular short code. The list below is for those that do:

Short Link for Loveflower

https://apps.facebook.com/fbfairy/req.php?r=love/

Short Link for Daffodil

https://apps.facebook.com/fbfairy/req.php?r=daff/

Short Link for Sunflower

https://apps.facebook.com/fbfairy/req.php?r=sunflower/

Short Link for Scarecrow

https://apps.facebook.com/fbfairy/req.php?r=scarecrow/

Short Link for Halloween Flower

https://apps.facebook.com/fbfairy/req.php?r=spooky/

Short Link for Ice Flower

https://apps.facebook.com/fbfairy/req.php?r=iceflower/

Short Link for Poinsettia

https://apps.facebook.com/fbfairy/req.php?r=poinsettia/

Short Link for Festive Tree

https://apps.facebook.com/fbfairy/req.php?r=tree/

These direct short links will work for an additional 2 weeks (give or take) after the seasonal plants have been deactivated for gifting to friends.

WHAT IS THE NUMBER THAT APPEARS IN PARENTHESES (BRACKETS) IN MY FAIRYLAND ON FACEBOOK TAB

The number that appears is related to your Facebook notifications that have not been viewed yet. This is not related to Fairyland – see graphic below:

HOW DO I PLACE BLACK HEARTS IN MY POSTS

Press and hold down the Alt key on your keyboard and click on the number 3 in your keypad on the right (your Num Lock needs to be on to do this). As soon as you let go of the three (you still need to be holding down the Alt key) a heart will appear on the screen.

You can now let go of the Alt Key.

If you have a laptop that does not have a num pad, try the following ways of inserting the heart symbol:

  • If you are using Vista hit ‘Start’ and search for ‘charmap’
  • If you are using XP go to run and type ‘charmap’
  • Change the font to ‘Arial’ and scroll to almost the bottom and ♥

(In the bottom left you will see U+a number. It is sorted numerically and the heart is U+2665

The following website gives you a listing of all the symbols (like the heart), also known as Ascii codes.

They are all created by using the Alt key and the num pad.

HOW DO I POST A LINK TO MY GARDEN IN THE FORUM WITH A PICTORIAL BOX OF THE CRITTER I AM ATTRACTING

If you are attracting badgers to your garden and you want to advertise this in the forum, you can provide a link to your garden with the critter box below your garden to the right. When someone has found a badger in your garden, click on the notifications (see first picture below) above your garden. A scroll will pop up showing a listing of all the critters found in your garden over the past few hours. Find the information on the badger and click on the [View] link which appears directly after it. You will be redirected to your garden, but a box will appear directly below your garden on the right (see second picture below) containing the information on the badger found in your garden. All you have to do now is to click on the URL link that appears in the URL window at the top of your page. Make sure you have the entire URL strand selected. Copy and paste this link into a thread on the forum. Anyone clicking on this link will be directed to your garden, and will be able to see the badger notification box below when they get there. They will be able to water and view all other information in your garden as normal.

WHY ARE THE POSTS ON MY FAIRY PROFILE WALL FADED

This message was posted in the News section of Fairyland regarding faded posts:

September 30th

If you have very old posts on your wall (over a month old) then you will notice that they have now become ‘faded’.

We do occasionally delete old posts (over a month old) from the app, since huge numbers of posts build up over time, and occasionally purging the old ones helps us to keep Fairyland running well.

The introduction of the ‘faded posts’ is therefore just a gentle reminder that these posts are old enough to be removed, so if there are any of them which you want to keep, for example useful notes to yourself, be sure to take a copy!

I HAVE JUST SEEN A GARDEN WITH THREE FEEDING TABLES. HOW COME I CANNOT HAVE THREE IN MY GARDEN

There are a few gardens in Fairyland that have three feeding tables, and they belong to some of the original fairy’s. This was a glitch that occurred in Fairyland when it first started and, if they should delete one of them,  they will lost the ability to have all three. For an explanation on how this happened, click on the Wild Fae Blog link below. You will also be able to visit one of these gardens, as the garden owner is the originator of the Blog itself, and there is a link to her garden in the Blog:

http://wildfae.wordpress.com/other/three/

November 2011 – Another glitch in the system enabled a number of Fairylanders to add three tables to their garden. For a period of time they were able to have 10 items in their garden, but as soon as they removed a plant to add something else, their gardens reverted back to 9 items only (with three feeding platters it allowed them to have only six plants in their garden). A lot of these Fairylanders removed the third table as it proved to be very expensive providing food on all three, all the time, and there were certain critters that they could not attract because they needed the extra space for a particular plant.

2013 – you are now able to have three feeding tables in your garden, as it is the reward for completing all of the Fairytales. Look at page 18 regarding the fairytales, for pictures of the new gnome table.

HOW DO I HIDE OR SHOW FAIRYLAND NOTIFICATIONS IN MY FACEBOOK NEWS FEED

HOW DO I MASS DELETE THE MESSAGES ON MY GARDEN WALL

Click on the [X] between Garden Messages and [refresh messages] – found in the bottom left-hand corner of your garden picture (see below). If you click on the X, you will receive a pop-up message asking you to confirm that you really want to permanently delete all of your garden messages.
