Light-bulbVote if you want 1-Click Gifts for Zynga Games' Message Center!

Please_share

Update (01/14/13 @ 1:31 PM PST): Thanks for all the feedback and votes! We are not really sure if this feature has a big demand, so we'll think a bit more about whether to implement it or not.

1-Click Gifts is one of the tools we offer on Gamers Unite! which lets you click on all the the gift requests on the Game App Request page with one click (you need the Snag Bar to use this feature.) To refresh your memory, this is how it looks:

We are actually not entirely sure which games work anymore as newer games only allow you to respond to requests inside the Flash games. Many of the newer Zynga games take this format called the "Message Center" and older games like Farmville have already transitioned to use this as well.

The work is actually not that bad inside the Message Center, even if you have 100 requests, you can just blindly go click click click like a Kung Fu master and you should be done in couple of minutes.

But instead of doing the Kung Fu master thing, would you like to find inner peace by clicking it only ONCE to accept ALL? Or for once for every catageroy?

We wanted to ask y'all if this is something you'd like to have! Please let us know by voting :)

Thanks for all the feedback! We decided to think more if we should implement this feature since looking at the feedback, it seems like it's not that useful to many people compared to the work we need to do (plus the maintenance which is a huge headache.)

The good news is, we shipped out a pretty cool option which snags new items that are not yet added to the Snag Bar database!

My 1 click on the apps page used to work but now it doesn't. The little red 'G' does not appear to click on to automatically go thru my game requests :( Did I do something to disable it?

@GJ McGinnis - Please visit the thread linked below and post your 1-Click Gifts issue there. Before you post, however, please make sure to read the entire original post. Yes, all of it. Especially the large highlighted section at the bottom of the post.

I came here looking for a post about the fact that my "Accept All" has vanished today.
I've been traveling for a while, so today is the first time I've tried to use it for a while.
Is it broken, or is it just me?
Thanks

I would like it only if it was "Accept and Send" ... otherwise, that would not be very neighborly :)

We would default to "Accept & Send", if we implement this feature. Does anyone do "Accept" and not send back?!

Yes! Make it happen...

Returning gifts or request is a big concern I have also. We have many quest to accomplish, I find it very important to help all my neighbors with the (one click). Maybe this would be helpful to those who think "Gamers are cheaters. Prove to those we are not cheating or causing harm, we can lower expenses.

Sounds like a good idea but will it return the gifts as well as accept them? I always think that it doesn't so i don't use that feature. I don't think it's fair to just accept them.

This would be wonderful to have for all the games. I play so many and it gets tedious clicking 100+ gifts just to get into a game.

@Trash, I personally don't mind the Kung Fu thing either, it really doesn't take too long anyway. I also don't like that there are lots of ads for other games inside the message center, so that's why we are thinking of having an option to click for each category.

@Lydia, we used to be able to get the same gift twice when Farmville allowed us to accept gifts outside the Flash game (sort of the same way how we get bonuses from our feed) Are you still allowed to accept gifts using the app center?

I know some people who are not native English speakers with perfect grammar Smile so I shouldn't make any excuse but it makes me feel better that I could still be better than some native speakers! :P I was actually really surprised when I saw a native English speaker write "I should of" instead of "I should have!" Surprised

One thing I have noticed is that on Farmville, you can actually get the SAME gift TWICE - once by using the App Center page with 1-click, and then again inside the game with the ZMC. This is especially nice when you are trying to build something that needs a bunch of parts.

Amy - Don't worry about the "Grammer Police" - some people will find anything to nag about. Many "native speakers" of English have much worse grammer and spelling than you do. Trust me, I live in a city where English is mangled on a daily basis!

I really don't mind to do the 'Kung Fu master' stuff, that way i can accept the gifts i need and ignore the gifts i don't need (and (don't) send back to certain neighbors)
What bothers me the most in Zynga's message center are the gifts for other games, why would i accept cityville gifts if i'm playing farmville and vice versa?

Btw, best wishes for 2013 to all GU! staff & users

@Carol thanks for the grammer correction. I'm not a native English speaker so my grammar is definitely far from perfect. Can you volunteer to proof read all my posts? That would help me alot.

Picture?type=square

i believe but changing to one click would be a lot easier to finish sending and accepting gifts so you can go back to play your games....and it will save a lot of time to....

Picture?type=square

yes, but you really need to watch your English. Its "newer games DO not" - not "newer games DOES not". And And "older games like farmville HAVE", not has. Gheez!

Picture?type=square

Yes Please Yes Please Yes Please lol TY <3

Picture?type=square
