Glad to meet'cha!

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

I have noticed a big difference between Mobile and PC.  
Helping other people or having people to help. 
On my PC town I have to troll to get people to help. If some one does pop up needing something it's generally seconds before they get helped. This could be my own fault as I have a lot of active co-op leaders on my friends list.
But, on Mobile, which I admittedly abandoned for about 3 years or more, I struggle to clear my need help list. Some sit for hours on it just needing a crop to fill a train or plane. I don't even look at the zoo until I fill the train/planes that I can. And don't get me started on Ernie. Sad
So is this normal for Mobile? Do I have bad friends? Do my friends have bad friends?

Thanks for any enlightenment.

Hm, my reply is not here. Weird. Anyway, to repeat, I guess, I have no experience on pc. But on mobile I have times when orders get filled very quickly, and other times when they never get filled. It's somewhat predictable though. If it's a time consuming order (one or many things that take a long time) it will likely not get filled. So, I ask for my requests with that in mind. I ask for the easiest of the pair in zoo orders, I don't ask for too many time consuming ones at one time there too (ie. If I ask for a truck, I don't also ask for a suit in the zoo). On the train, if it takes a long time to make, it will likely not get filled, even for one thing. Sometimes it does; mostly it doesn't. The exception is when there's been an event where you have to craft a lot of stuff, like industrial boom, or something like that. Then those harder orders get filled. Another exception is candy, and jam, which do take a long time but aren't used in other things so people are likely to have a surplus. Also, tailor orders will get filled more often than furniture and shoes.

I get the zoo orders. I look at them and go no I will not give you 9 of pick anything hard to make.
But I try for clovers constantly. So I will eventually fill anything I can and make, not buy, the ridiculous things. I made bagels for 2 days. Still need 22 bagels to help people with.
Paper is the hardest thing to get help on in the PC game so I make it constantly on the mobile.
I understand people not wanting to help with furniture, or Jam, or shoes.
But I'm talking about a lot of time I will see someone sit needing 45 cotton for a plane (happened today). I was doing something and didn't want to move stuff to grow extra cotton. So I just started harvesting my 6 that I keep planted. Until I forgot. 3 or 4 hours later I was checking my want list and go oh! she still needs 45 cotton. So I start and extra field of cotton. Get enough to help once and forget about it until I go why do I have cotton in my wheat field. Wait some one needs it. Harvest and go look and sure enough she now needs 30 cotton.  So I fill a second crate. Went ahead and planted for the 3 but finally roughly 8 hours after I started the whole cotton thing some one else filled the last crate. 

I get about 50 clovers a day in the mobile town because I forget to check sometimes. If I really tried I figure I could double that. But the town on my Kindle is my second town so I just don't try
 as hard on it.

I tend to ignore calls for zoo help since I only get a clover when I help Ernie. Sometimes I will see one of my original friends stuck with a ridiculous zoo task and I will help, but I use a coupon to do it (I have 200+). I am a great helper because I pay my dealer's salary with the Ts I win at HoL. So it's "hi ho hi ho, it's help for clovers I go."

I am curious: With Ore Galore less than two weeks away, how many mining tools do you have stocked up and/or hope to have.  I currently have 13921 pickaxes, 1212 sticks of dynamite and 687 plungers with TNT. I use the dealer every time I can to get pickaxes if the quantity is 14 or 15. I avoid doing regatta mining tasks unless needed to win. BTW, I do nothing on the first day of Mine Time and dig like heck the next two days. I am still smelting ore from last time.

I am a tad bit behind you.  3313 picks, 322 sticks of dynamite, and 239 tnt.
I blew through my ore from last time but I stopped when I got about 1000 feet ahead of second place.
I am buying ore right now but plan on cutting that off and switching back to picks soon. I have one of the boosters that cuts dealer reload in half, just waiting for the right time to use it.

Hiya, Gracie. Smile Thankfully ore and mining tools are stored in the mine's warehouse (the blue container).

@Mic Miller I rarely have more than a few hundred picks at one time, so I guess I never thought about having several thousand! I have a plan, now!

Just reached the level where almost all factories need stuff from the mine, I usually win the mine time event but there is no way I can save mining equipment and also keep the factories working. I'm level 88 any advice from those towns above would be gratefully received

Did you mean to say dealer, not mine?

hmmm   the only factories that I can recall off the top of my head are the jewelry store, the furniture factory, and the  kitchenware one?
All factories require ingots to upgrade but that is a choice on doing then not mandatory to play the game.

No. I meant mine.... Music factory, toy, kitchenware, perfume, jewellery, plastics. 
They eat a lot of material. 
And yes there is the factory upgrades and the islands that require ingots. Factory's are upgraded ASAP. The islands when I need to guarantee products for regatta tasks.

Well I was trying to save mining tools in prep for the two mining events.
But hey ho...I have used a lot doing mining tasks in regatta.
So I won’t be winning these events either lol.

For the April mining event I saved up for nearly two months buying 15 picks from the dealer at a cost of 1,500 coins and rarely anything else. I buy whatever else I need from the standard market boxes and I rarely ever make anything in the factories that require ore from the mine - just buy it, I have a lot of boxes. I accumulated about 5,000 picks and enough of the dynamite and TnT to support the picks last time. I mined for so long my fingers began to hurt and it became a tedious chore instead of fun... and still I was nowhere near the first place spot! I probably used up about 3,500 picks when I threw in the towel and decided to save some for quick regatta tasks. I decided to just be happy with the ore I got - yep, still turning it into ingots, have a TON left! And it has been great for upgrading my factories, it is a whole new challenge for me now that all my CBs and ZEs are done.

In the last professor's experiments I had an offer for 30 picks for 3,000 coins so I took it. I've been getting 30 picks ever since and will until the next mining event so long as I don't ask for anything else (Dealer always repeats the previous deal, so I guess the double market held over). I'm back up to around 5,500 picks, 450 dynamite, 350 tnt. But I am not sure my wrist/fingers have healed from the last mining event... I had dreams about mining! I'm sure I will play a lot this time, but only for the double ore. It's too boring and time consuming to mine for days straight to not even win first place, when I have more ore than I could ever use between events.

I am of the mind to not even dig the first day of the event. Run the light and dig until I run out of picks or the light runs out during the double ore part. The stop once that's over. Although I still need to win 4 mayor's event.,....
