These Posts are NOT my Strategy Guides

I would have thought this to be obvious, but evidently many players do not read the description of this site or take the time to look at the right side of the page. I keep receiving emails from players who have game questions and declare that the answer cannot be found on my site. They never have read ANY of my actual strategy guides and evidently simply do a search of the posts here.

Harvest Moon Forever was created primarily as a site where players could find LINKS to all of my real Strategy Guides. Those links are on the right side of this page. For any Harvest Moon or Rune Factory game, I usually write more than one Guide, including a comprehensive Walkthrough/General Guide as well as 'mini-guides' dealing with specific aspects of the game, such as a Characters Guide, a Courtship and Marriage Guide, an Items and Shipping List Guide and a Recipe Cookbook Guide.

As time passed, I began to write posts about specific problems in games or reviews of upcoming games or simply posts describing events I liked. These should not be mistaken for my actual Guides. At times, I have included sections from my Guides in posts, either in order to give quick access to specific information to players or because it was a holiday and my updates to my actual guides would not be uploaded for a couple of days. The amount of information included in the posts on this site nonetheless is simply a fraction of the information that is contained in my actual strategy guides for any Harvest Moon or Rune Factory game. Furthermore, these posts never were intended to offer comprehensive tips or Walkthroughs. They are 'extras', in the same way that my YouTube tutorial videos for Harvest Moon or Rune Factory games are 'extras'. The primary source of information ALWAYS IS the actual Guide or Guides that I write.

Hi, I came across your guides on IGN, and I wanted to say thanks for writing them. They've been a huge help to me playing through The Sunshine Islands.

Thank you. My Guides for Sunshine Islands still are not complete, unfortunately, as I had to take a break to cover Animal Parade, another fabulous Harvest Moon game.
I do intend to return to SI and add to every Guide. Many Subsidiary Events haven't been entered yet in the Characters Guide.

I see you are a fan of the adorable Witchkin. Isn't she wonderful? I was so pleased to encounter her on Mystic Islands! Happy 18th Birthday to you, by the way.
