    Quick Tips:

    Look for which way the balloon opening is pointing to determine its "size":
    Small is to the left
    Medium is to the right
    Large is upside down

    To combine balloons:

    click Pouch:

    drag 2-3 ballons from "Your Balloons" to Combiner:
    click Transmute:

    Answers to some other FAQs:
    -You can have up to two splats on somebody's profile at one time.
    -YoVille Red + YoVille Blue = Pink, not Purple. Nothing you can do about it.
    -You can only combine 2 or 3 balloons
    -When a recipe fails, you are left with one of the balloons you used (random)
    -Sequence does not matter: Red+Blue+Yellow is the same as Red+Yellow+Blue
    -Reward Balloons and Collectible Balloons are refillable every 10 minutes, just like Red/Blue/Yellow
    -Pearls/Necklace haven't produced any "Rare" balloons, while other collectibles do produce rares
    -Buying a Collectible balloon does not go towards your Buy Items on yoville.com badges
    -The "hide splats" link will only make it so that you can click other links (ie pots/gifts/light switches/etc.) on the page that may be obstructed by splats. It won't affect how others see the page.
    -Giftable balloons do not combine.
    -Try not to post here just asking to be splatted. Contribute to the discussion. If your post is just asking to be splatted, some may interpret that as requesting to be cleaned
    -Applications into the Balloon Club are currently closed until the member limit is increased


    Some hints on finding rares from sirdizzy (posts are no longer available):
    -Basic: throwing a variety of mostly large reds/blues/yellows
    -Throwing only gravitrons and dark matter
    -The main thing is to throw medium balloons / large balloons / collectible balloons (except for the pearls)

    Known Issues
    -Pawn is still splatting as a queen.
    -Cherry image still showing as lightning cloud in profile and upon discovery.
    -Psychedelic / Suit / Thumb Tack misspelled.
    -The totals in each set are correct when viewed from profiles, but incorrect when viewed from the pouch
    -You'll lose YoCash for nothing if you accidentally buy a Collectible balloon you already have
    -"Y" balloon thumb is "V"
    -Some are having problems combining balloons. Try using a different browser.

    Because...
    1.) Drew is the one keeping track of the balloons (check the author of previous balloon thread)

    2.) When there are too many posts in a thread it starts to lag, so needs to be restarted

    Drew, keep up the good work and TY
