A new feature in FrontierVille is the ability to ask your neighbors to send you a Picnic Basket. This feature replaces the old ability to ask all of your neighbors to send you a Light Snack for a 10 coin reward. On the positive side, the new picnic baskets gives both parties a light snack. On the negative side, you have to send a request to your neighbor for the picnic basket, who must then approve or deny said request. This is much more time consuming than clicking a link on the news feed.
Then there’s the actual message accompanying the request:
Wow. Please don’t let my family starve. That’s hardcore. If you don’t approve your neighbor’s request, you’re basically killing their small children. So go ahead and ignore it, you murderer.
