I feel the Pot of Gold brought in by FarmVille is a steal off the the Valentines' Day Gift idea, don't you think?
If you look inside your Pot of Gold, you can see that the layout of the Pot of Gold is completely the same as the Valentines'Day Gift under the Progress Tab.
There is a handy icon that lets you ask for gold from your neighbours.
Once you click on the "Ask for Gold" icon, you will be prompted to "Ask Them!"... (your neighbours, of course)
Then you will be brought to the Free Gifts screen shot... Of course I have removed the names of all my neighbours...
This will prompt your selected neighbours to give gold to you via Facebook requests.
Another way you can get more gold would be to scale your neighbours' Farmville Feeds. I have posted earlier on how you can do that. Read here.
Are we all gold diggers?
