Hopper the Gift Shop has a gift machine (its packed there though). If you want in on a secret, go to Dream Central and use the one there. There isnt a soul there and its working pretty well.

ok, I went to Dream Central and didnt even see a gift machine there. I'll have to look again if I decide to bother myself with it anymore. Thx.

I missed that these were going to be gift machine items. Now I have mixed feelings -- cool gesture, but what a pain to use that machine for this many items.

The above comment is my opinion, unless I state a fact. You can disagree with my opinion, but facts are facts.

I appreciate it--I did find it there, but it was no better. Probably just overloaded, insufficient Home servers as usual. No worries.

The machine is REALLY acting up today. I don't think I've ever seen it this slow... I went to my private boat to use the machine there because typically it's more stable there, but WOW. Also tried it at Lockwood Venue, slow as heck there as well. It like loads the opening screen for a minute, then loads each page of items for another minute, then loads the item for a minute. Then sending the item takes like atleast two minutes. ONE ITEM. AND A LOT OF FRIENDS I'D LIKE TO GIFT. What a let down, lol. I'll have to try early tomorrow. ~Sigh~

 

Oh, and if you accidentally press left or right to switch items, you have to wait another minute to reload the previous items' info, lol.

 

There's some cute boots in there under new, btw. Just had to add that.

Apologies for the Gift Machine's slowness, it's currently running at 100% capacity and we literally can't do anything to improve it.

 

The good news is that after doing some extensive testing myself, I didn't find a single gift that wouldn't send eventually. Some gifts took me 4-5 attempts to send, but everything eventually sent.

 

The key is patience. If it doesn't work, just try again. To improve your chances of success, only send to one person at a time and use a built-in Gift Machine, such as this one from our Dream Central public space:

UPDATE:

 

Hi all,

The combined traffic of the 2013 E3 Booth and our free Gift Machine items promotion has proven too much for the servers to handle. Gift Machine traffic was at a record-breaking high last night, resulting in a slow and frustrating time for many of you. As a result of this we've decided to postpone the promotion until next week, July 3rd, when the E3 space will be removed from Home. This will hopefully give everyone a better gifting experience overall, and on the plus side, you'll get an extra couple of days out of it! But ultimately, we're really sorry to have to do this Smiley Sad

TL;DR - Free gifts next week instead (SORRY!)

Kind regards,
Tim
