The original Gift Machine was the blue one.  The "newer" machine (rebranded as v2.0) is the red one that was handed out as a reward in the Sodium Hub as of March 2011.  Lockwood says that both machines use the same code so there should be no difference between the two.  I'll admit I reverted to using the older blue Gift Machine because I found it looks cooler, and because several users reported that they thought the blue edition was more stable than the red one.

 

D-N, as for the Gift Machine constantly failing to send gifts to people, my impression is there often seems to be something 'wrong' with the recipient's account when that happens.  I've noticed that there's alway a few names, each time, who constantly pop up in the send failure notice.   Older accounts and users who own many inventory items seem to experience the issue the most often for some reason.


 

You probably thought it is account related due to the fact that every other person you include results in an error, and so if you happen to be sendinit items to the same list, the same accounts will get the error as they will be in the same order.

 

Trust me, I've tested this out numerous times, and it always gives an error offor every other person when you send as a group.  If you try sending one at a time, then it still gives the error message every other attempt.

 

This isn't a new problem, and so far Lockwood has not done anything to fix it.

Unfortunately they can't fix it. I got a long email from them recently explaining why; I posted its contents in a related thread but can't find it at the moment. It's basically a limitation with how rewards are handed out in Home.

Didnt happen to me personally, but I had a..... friend?.. Tell another friend of mine last night that he sent her a coyote from the gift machine but she already had it. And supposedly it took his tokens anyways.
