I have just about given up hope on getting a new one.
8 Weeks homeless (since I had to give up the old one first)
8 Weeks of refreshing that stupid page, and on the very few times one has been available, losing it because of the second stupid page you have click on again and then it's sold out, try again
Just sell lottery tickets and make it easier.. or..
@Patch Linden how about a SENSIBLE way to do this?
1. Let us go out to the new regions and look at the houses.. if one is not taken, click the mailbox and let us RESERVE it right there. Operative word. RESERVE. You do not have abandon your old home right then.
2. The RESERVATION is good for 48 hours, time to pack up your old home neatly,abandon the old one.
3, Then go back to your reservation and CLAIM the new one.
Isn't that simple? less pain, less frustration.less network traffic (refresh, refresh, refresh), less broken keyboards...
Conversely..how about a WAITING LIST.. get on the list, when the house of your chose type comes available, you get it RESERVED and notice emailed/IM to you with the location.
Go to step 2 above.
