We've heard that not everyone totally understands why the "Whoa! Farmer" or "Saving your Farm please wait" errors are showing on their Farms every now and then. Below are the most frequently asked questions regarding these errors, and useful information to understand them better.
What are these errors?
"Whoa! Farmer" errors occur when your Game and FarmVille' server disagree about the current state of a Farm. The disagreement is basically a disconnection between the Game and its server communication; this prevents any progress until the two are in agreement again.
Are these the same as an "Out of Sync"?
Yes, these errors are FarmVille's own way to call all Out of Sync (OOS) situations.
What causes these errors?
"Whoa! Farmer" errors are typically caused by:
Internet service errors
Weak internet connection (Dial-up or slow internet connection)
Taking too many actions at the same time on the Game
Two game windows opened on the same or different browsers
Using your phone (if dial-up connection)
Playing FarmVille on both your phone and your desktop at the same time
And some other connection errors
When are these errors triggered?
Whenever you take any action in the game, a transaction is created to save that action on the server. If that transaction is not processed by the server, then it creates a disagreement and the "Whoa! Farmer" is triggered to prevent you from losing any more progress.
What happens during these errors?
FarmVille will always save all the actions that happened before the error is triggered, meaning that when you reload your Farm some progress might be lost, yet you will be able to re-do all the actions.
Will I lose Cash/Coins our Items during these errors?
You shouldn't lose any of the above during a "Whoa! Farmer", as explained before the game will revert back all actions taken prior to the "Whoa! Farmer!" showing on your Game.
For instance, let's say you bought a Farmhand for 5 Farm Cash, if the action is lost because of a "Whoa! Farmer" error, then when you log back you will not have the Farmhand in your Gift Box, but your Farm Cash will be returned.
What if I'm missing Items on my Farm?

Technically, Facebook application FarmVille is a MacroFlash Media game. It is a real time game which synchronized to the time. The "Out of Sync" notice when you are getting lag or lead..
When you are lagging?
You are lag when your internet connection is bad/slow.. Your getting OUT OF SYNC to the real time..
When you are leading?
You are lead when you're using a program to change the time sequence of the game.. Your also OUT OF SYNC when your trying to set to fast your FarmVille time..
* If still the FarmVille page is not accessible, try this :
1. Open your web browser.
2. Goto Tools >> Internet Options.
3. Delete all Cookies, Temporary Files and History.
4. Apply the settings and restart the browser.
* If even now the page is not accessible, the problem is the busy server! Please try to Refresh/Reload the web page!
tell me if it not works...tc! :)
*** The 'FarmVille' game application is under maintenance since yesterday because of the connection problems reported
by the users. So, please keep patience till tommorow when all the errors in the application will be repaired! Enjoy Farming !!! ;)
sometimes it is very slow to open - watch the bar at the bottom where it says loading below the main farmville logo and when it finished - then your farm will appear - sometimes it takes 2-3 minutes if the servers are busy or you are on a slow connection
You need to update your flashplayer. Go to www.farmville.com. Your farm will load. Go to the bottom of the page where you will see "if you are having trouble seeing Farmville, update your flashplayer by clicking HERE". Worked like a charm for my husband's account.
