Transfers not able to be accepted

27 Feb 2019, 12:00 pm
Hello! I am hosting a giveaway board and many people have reported to me that they are not able to accept the items I am sending. Some people have been able too because I am getting notifications but many also are not and are getting the message

'Could not accept transfer'

I have tried cancelling the request, sometimes that does work, sometimes it doesn't...

Can this kindly be looked into?

Many thanks in advance :)

For what it's worth: Repeated attempts to accept (often after waiting a bit) sometimes work. Today I was able to accept a transfer that Domayne had sent 6 hours and 50 minutes previously... after repeated attempts and some extra waiting.

Could this be an issue with there being a transfer queue, and/or some kind of limitation on the number of transfers that are allowed to be processed by any individual user within a specific time frame?

Hope this can be fixed soon! This kind of giveaway gives a great boost to community morale and goodwill. :)

Same as Aviva - after three attempts it eventually worked, but it was a few hours later. It's very odd!

Same with me too

Same here! I eventually asked Domayne to just send the item in a trade, but that's more tedious than transfers ; w ; I had the same thing happen with Beaky yesterday, also.

same, I have two transfers i cant accept...

I now have three item transfers I can't accept, two from the lovely Domayne and one from a kind anon today :( I've tried so many times. I have over 800 inventory spaces so that's not the problem.
28 Feb 2019, 2:38 pm
Same problem over here! None of the item transfers I've sent to my friends have gone though.

Got an anon transfer I can't accept today

Hey folks, here's something that worked for me: wait an hour, then try Accepting on your phones (if you have one with internet) instead.

re: accepting it on your phone, unfortunately i'm primarily a mobile player but phone vs desktop hasn't made a difference for me! i think it's site-end, not device end. either way, i haven't been able to accept my items either (one from anon, one from domayne)

Hi guys! Hopefully admins are on this, as it has been ticketed as well as bugged.

In case it helps, when I ran into the problem it seemed to help to wait a while, then try again. Eventually I was able to accept mine.

Let's hope they have this fixed soon -- meanwhile, keep trying (with some time in between)!

I have 3 from him that I can't accept.


Waiting awhile doesn't necessarily work, at least not for me. I've been waiting and trying since the first day he began giving away. Thanks for the idea tho.

Hello there! Unfortunately this issue seems to have been around long before my time, although it is hard to track down as it is inconsistent. I have added it to the Existing Bug Reports list and will be employing the help of some other staff later on to experiment with a few ideas.

If you have a transfer that is stuck, please let me know what the transfer contains and who it is from so that I may investigate if anything looks off with it.

thank you so much for looking into it!!

i hope it's okay to tell you in a forum post, since it's not an exploit? my specific transfers are:
1x Magical Sea Snake Plush from Domayne. sent 27th February 2019 @ 4:56 AM. message: "Enjoy ^-^"
1x Gold Fennec Fox, female, 5 breeding charges, breedable now; from anonymous. sent 28th February 2019 @ 6:05 AM. message: "Hope you have a great day ^-^"

it might be a long shot, but i wonder if it has something to do with the ^-^ in the messages? i've received/sent items with both carets and dashes in them, but not both at the same time, and that was ~2 years ago.

I really appreciate you looking into this. I have sent you a PM with my info.

Thanks! =)

Has anyone heard anything yet? It's been 9 days now that I've been trying to accept these.
