Default How to find your Start Date yourself.

How to find your Start Date yourself.

There are several ways to find the date you first started playing Farm Town.

Facebook changes things every now and then.
Some people will have different versions of Facebook to others.
So you'll just have to try the methods listed and see which one will show your start date.

We're only going to list a few of them.
However if you have ever deleted the game and then reinstalled it,
it will only show you the date you last reinstalled as each time you do that it resets the date.



METHOD 1:
  • In the dark blue bar at the top of Facebook is a drop down arrow. Click on it.

  • Click on Settings

  • Click on Apps and Websites on the left

  • If you are currently playing Farm Town the game should be listed under the Active heading.
    If you have quite a few Apps you may need to click on See More to view more Apps.
    Look for Farm Town and the Date will be showing next to it.
  • To go to your Facebook News Feed, just click on the Home link in the dark blue bar at the top of Facebook.




METHOD 2:
  1. From Facebooks News Feed, look for the Farm Town bookmark in the left pane.

  2. Hover your mouse over the bookmark and three little horizontal dots will appear to the right of it. Click on them and chose Edit Settings from the list that shows:
  3. At the very top of the window that opens it shows if you are Active in the game and when you first started playing Farm Town OR last reinstalled the game.

    You can edit various settings in this window so make sure you don't disable something you're going to need to be able to play.

  4. If you scroll that window to the bottom you can find your User ID for the game. In the example below the ID number has been altered to protect privacy and if used will just take you to a blank farm. Example:
  5. If you are only looking for your Start Date or your ID, when you are done you can either click the X at the top right of the window or the Cancel at the bottom of the window.





If you have reinstalled the game at any time and your start date is reflecting the new start date, you might be able to find an earlier date IF you have been a member of the Forum since you first started playing. The date you joined the forum shows in the Mini Statistics of your Forum Profile and in the top right hand corner of any of your forum posts so may be closer to the date you first started playing.

Examples:







If Neither of the above methods work for you, you can post a request in the Help and Support Section of the forum in the Thread titled Start date.
You will find that thread on either Page 1 OR Page 2 of the Help and Support section. Click on the thread title, then scroll to the bottom of the thread and post your request in the Quick Reply box.

To be able to check this for you we will need your farm link, so please remember to paste it in your post.
NOTE: If you have ever deleted the game and then reinstalled it, we can only tell you the date you last reinstalled the game as each time you do that it resets the date.
