As the Make a Wish feature from the gift box often end up with errors, here are simple directions to create a personalized gift request that will allow your friends to send you the item without you getting the "gifterror=notfound" message.
Plus it's easier for them - they do not have to select names off the list! Your link will take them directly to this window:
How to do this:
Step 1 Copy the link (shown below) for the item you need.
Then paste it into a document for editing.
Step 2 Go to your Profile page and click on your profile picture.
You will see your ID number in the address bar.
If you have chosen a vanity username, you will need to click on your profile picture again which takes you to your photo album and the id= is at the top with your number.
Step 3 Copy the long number after id= in the address bar.
Step 4 Paste your ID number into the links below in place of the ##### symbols.
- Save this link that you just created to a document for future postings. Once you have created it, you can use it over and over!
- Copy the whole link and paste it as a new status message or in a Farmville post.
- Consider mentioning what your link is for, so that people don't get suspicious of scary long links ;)
- Make sure you only post one gift link every few minutes (not all of them together) as you can only get ONE gift from a neighbor at a time (refreshes after around 4+ hours). If they open them all in separate tabs before they send, they can still do it but you will get a bunch of errors with gifts not being found. So, just ask for one and everyone will do less clicking.
Note: "Sorry, you can't give this user any more gifts right now, please try again later."
If you have already sent that person a gift recently you will see this message and not be able to send a gift. This is good because it prevents your friends from accepting items that don't work. Usually 'later' might be in just 4-8 hours.
