    Recently a large group of people lost the ability to get regular boosters from collecting sugar drops and got timed boosters instead.  This poll is specifically aimed at voting to get rid of the timed sugar drops so the game studio can clearly see the votes and opinions of the players.

    The other poll "Keep Sugar Drops" -  was created when the game studio took away entirely the ability to collect sugar drops and get boosters from a group of people (who now can collect sugar drops again but in some cases they are now timed).

    Although the Sugar Drops Boosters are now Timed, this "Boosters Giver" never stops giving compared to other Challenges that are out there. Currently, I am stuck in a Level with No Boosters nor Power-Ups to use because the Single Use Boosters were wiped out including the ones won from the Build-A-Bot Challenge because of the extreme difficulty of the level. Instead of Getting Rid of the Timed Boosters, King should Convert the Time into how much Boosters in terms of Quantity a player use in a non-stop play. This was what I was asking for in my Discussion "Please Make Timed Boosters Worthwhile By Converting These To The Equivalent Amount Of Non-Stop Play" with this link:

    I understand the frustrations having to waste these Timed Boosters when we couldn't play because of other responsibilities. Let's not ask to eliminate these. We have to be careful of what we ask for because we might get it. If the other Booster challenges are not performing or not giving us something for some reason or another, then we are stuck with nothing, hampering or impeding our way to moving-up. Think about it!

    @mercerick - those of us in the sugar drops 'testing group' just want the regular sugar drops back,  We don't want to get rid of them - we just want the boosters we win to not be timed.  We want our old capabilities back so that we win regular (non-timed) boosters when we complete the sugar drop challenge.  We definitely are not trying to get rid of the Sugar Drop Challenge!

    Can’t figure where to vote and who would vote to keep timed ones. Let’s see, give me boosters for a few minutes or let me have them forever. Who at King thought that was a good idea?

    Agreed, why change things that work well in the first place. Hope the comments and complaints are heard, where do I vote?

    Definitely not what you are on, thank God! Did you even read what I said or did you just glance on it? I was asking King to Convert the Sugar Drops' Timed Boosters to quantity based on Non-Stop Play from the allotted time which means if approved, you can get more Boosters that you can bank.

    Now, when you ask to  "Get Rid Of Timed Sugar Drops", they could get rid of the Sugar Drops all together. Was that really what you want?

    mercerik and @bearwithme I think what mercerik means is that the title or "entitling" of this post could a bit misleading when you look at it.  Instead of the title of this post chain reading "Get rid of Timed Sugar Drops" perhaps it would be clearer if it read something like "Get rid of the Timed Boosters and/or Awards under Sugar Drops and return to Normal Sugar Drop play" 

    Anyway I see what he is saying, I understood what you meant, but in my experience in the software field developers are quite literal and do not always see or pick-up on nuances in text, in meetings or live, face to face.

    Thanks! It is true, the title can be misconstrued, misconceived, or misinterpreted, just like how @Tim_O'Connell took my statement. I wish he would have explained his point why he was not happy with my statement, instead of a one sentence question which is more like an insult.

    Hello @mercerik and Welcome to the King Community @quiltedpink :)

    If you both don't mind, I would like to intervene here.... 

    The title of this Idea will not be misinterpreted because it clearly says "Get Rid of Timed Sugar Drops".  @bearwithme clearly stated that in the Title as well as in the explanation. 

    Also, this Idea is completely different from your suggestion Mercerik =)

    It would be nice & useful if you can start another thread with your Idea of "Please Make Timed Boosters Worthwhile By Converting These To The Equivalent Amount Of Non-Stop Play"!!  I am sure many players will agree with you :+1:

    Looking forward to see your Idea!  Have a nice day/evening!

    @Pummy_Raj

    Hi Pummy! Why do I need to start a Thread on an Idea that was posted on June 15? With Boosters hard to come by these days, I wouldn't want to lose any of them. The sad thing was all these Timed Boosters came all at the same time when I didn't have the time to play. I had some pressing things that needed my attention. I had one that was good for 6 hours which gave me hope that maybe I can play some of them when I come back. Unfortunately, they all timed-out. Since not all of us can sit down for hours and play the timed Boosters, I suggested that these be converted to quantity.

    @bearwithme and I were just sharing each other's opinions about this topic. Our discussions are open for opinions. We're friends here. We play together in this Community all the time. There was nothing to intervene about. It was that "one unnecessary comment" from someone else, a one sentence in a form of a question, that started the stir not us or from us.

    Hope this explanation gives you a whole picture! 

    Here is the link to my idea that was posted on June 15:
