Light-bulbGetting "Oops, can't read your wall"? "Error Code 8 - This requires an HTTPS connection"? Read on!

by Chao Lam - Mar 16, 2011 Star_s129,205 views

We know from many member reports, that in the past few months many users have been getting an error dialog like below:

oops, can't read wall

This has been a reallly hard issue to track down because 1) it doesn't seem to happen to any of the admins or mods 2) to those affected, it only happens randomly and sporadically.

However, thanks to persistence and patience of member Byrd Toni Byrd Toni, who emailed me multiple times and offered many screen sharing sessions, I think I've uncovered a proximate cause of the issue and a possible work-around.

I'm pretty sure it's a Facebook issue and have submitted a bug to them and actually got a response from them yesterday!

A Fix to Error Code 8 has been already rolled out. Please disregard the old content below.

I also came up with a work-around: since I don't get the issue, I'm not sure if it will work. This is where I need your help if you're brave enough to help out :)

If you're encountering this Error Code 8 problem and use the FireFox 3.6.x browser, please visit:

http://gamersunite.coolchaser.com/toolbar/experimental

Click the checkbox and see if the problem persists. Make sure your toolbar version is 0.91 (or newer).

This is just an experiment and currently only works on FireFox 3.6.x browsers (possibly also IE9). If this succeeds we'll roll it out to all browsers supporting the snag bar.

If you're trying this out and it's not working, please provide as much details as possible below. Thanks for your help!

As previously posted by Chao:

"Error 190 is related to not being able to connect to Facebook. Googling around, they recommend, logging out of facebook, clearing your cookies and restarting your browser.

In the worse case, remove GU! Facebook (under FB privacy settings), and reconnect with GU! again."

We rolled this change out to everyone March 31st. So you no longer need to tick this change.

the so called moderators on here are the most rude bunch of useless people around don't even think they are reading any of these comments otherwise surely they would not blank any of them so what is the point us saying gamer is not working properly again and asking for a fix when we already know they refuse to fix the problem off to find another checker i can use instead of this useless one

i got error code 4 again grrrr

Picture?type=square

Theres responses all over by me. Error 4 is an error with FB. Untill Facebook helps us we are at a loss. Although I talked to one of the admins and he said he would try a few more ideas but its basically that Fb only allows an application like GU to contact FB so many times a day. Now that number is very high and we should not be reaching it which means something else is going on with FB.

Why is there no response from GU about the error code 4 issue??? Tell us something please!!!!! Is there a fix? Do we just need to live with the problem???? What's going on????

Error Code: 4 - Application request limit reached

Been having this problem at least the last 7 days. Sometimes it would take and start snagging only for the counter to turn yellow. Cleared cookies, cache, haven't tried uninstalling but I will in a minute; however, I don't think that will help.

The application request limit reached is new starting today. Yesterday it just said it couldn't read my wall.
