Light-bulbSnag Bar not updated to snag new items? Here's a solution!

Please_share

Great news Gamers!

We just released a new feature to show only "Report Snaggable" items on the My Feed page! So if the new items are not yet added to our Snag Bar database, you can easily filter and collect them by using the 1-Click Bonus on the My Feed pages in the meantime!

... our loyal Snag Bar users will probably instantly know what I'm talking about, but if you don't quite follow, let me explain this in more details now :)

Many games on our Snag Bar release multiple quests each week, some games almost every day and maintaining it is a lot of work. Our beloved admin Tony has to enter each and every item into our database manually, paying close attention to which category it belongs to and what reward it gives out. Snag Bar is updated everyday, but sometimes it takes 48 hours as often times new quests are released on the weekends. Please understand that behind this awesome Snag Bar, there's actually a real person sitting inside, working his arse off updating games that he doesn't even play to please all of us so we don't have to do things manually. Thank you Tony from the bottom of our hearts!

However, we do understand that when new quests come out, people want to snag all the new items immediately so they can finish the quests right away. If anybody out there is willing to sit in front of the computer 24 hours a day to update the items as soon as they come out, please contact us. Needs to be computer savvy and fun to work with. OK? :D

Anyway, we huddled today and came up with a simple idea. While waiting the Snag Bar to be updated, on the "My Feed" pages (e.g. http://gamersunite.coolchaser.com/games/farmville/myfeed for Farmville's MyFeed), filter to show only "report snaggable" posts so people can instantly view and collect newly released items that are not on the Snag Bar yet. It still requires manual clicks, but we think it still gives you additional choices on how you can collect.

We are also thinking of an even advanced way to handle this issue so stay tuned! Your feedback/suggestions/ideas are greatly welcome!

We are thinking of adding another option "Snag All New Items" on the toolbar preferences page so people can snag all the items that are not yet added to the Snag Bar yet. What do you think? Read more on this thread!

Also thanks to all who showed interest in updating the Snag Bar database! We can definitly use your help with the new way of reporting snaggables that we are thinking of. Please read more also on that thread :)

I remember using the snag bar a year or so ago when I last played, it used to pick up SO much stuff it was brilliant. Now I have done all the check listed things for issues with the snag bar, have been running it for 2 days and not 1 item has been picked up. No idea why or how to fix it. Ive been playing since 2008 not sure if people just dont post things to their walls anymore or firefox and chrome just hate me.

The "report snaggable" on my feed page appears not to be active today. I noticed Jungle Blackberries were on the feed page but no report button was showing - these aren't in the bushel list yet.
Same applies to Jungle Puffs.

I was able to report Emerald Pineapple a few mins ago.

In fact nothing had the report button available.

@Ryan Anderson-Collins - What in the world are you talking about? If you want to snag Baby Bottles in FarmVille 2, then go to your Toolbar Preferences page, click the "Options" link for FarmVille 2, and select "Baby Bottle." The Snag Bar will then collect Baby Bottles for you. As far as missing items, we don't control what the games do with the items you successfully snag. You would need to contact the game's support people and ask them why the game isn't giving you the items you have collected off your News Feed.

I think we should have a snag a baby bottle button..Especially for FV2 and when I gather items most of them go missing after it says I have them..wt heck is going on with it?

@Iris van der Nest - Gamers Unite! doesn't send anything to anyone. If you are referring to the "Give & Get One" Reward Posts that the Snag Bar clicks on, that is handled by each game directly, just like if you had clicked on the link manually.

hey, when i send things to people with gamers united, they don't see that i send it?

Hey, I clicked "report snaggable" several times and when new window opens I can't write anything nor choose anything. FYI, I'm playing coasterville and using chrome browser. I'm wondering if its only me? (my apology for bad english) Everything else works perfectly :)
