Update (08/30/11 @ 3:10 PM PST): Thanks for voting! The Snag Bar for Empires and Allies is now live!

We often hear feature requests from our members and though we love all the requests, we are only a small group and often have difficulty figuring out which one we should be working on first. Lately, we've been seeing people asking for the Snag Bar for Empires and Allies; however, we don't really know how much of a demand it is, so here's something fun we came up with. Vote if you want this feature by pressing "like" on this post or on the widget below, and once we get enough likes, this feature will be implemented ASAP!

For this feature, it's a ball park number but we came up with a 10K 5K likes milestone. You have one week to vote too, so vote now and ask your friends to vote if you want to snag Empires and Allies! :)

Like this feature and get your voice heard!

Another 3 weeks has past since the voting officially ended. It seems like it'll reach 5K very soon and we will most certainly try to look into how to implement the snag bar for E&A. In the meantime, thanks Kassandra, Christina, and Bobby for your suggestions and feedback, we were inspired by all of your comments and were able to quickly release a new feature 1-click bonuses that works on ALL games, so please try out the 1-Click Bonuses for E&A and tell us how it's working out (or not) for you. For more details about 1-Click Bonuses, please visit this thread.

Thanks again for all your votes and feedback!

Thank you very much for everybody who participated in voting! We heard all your voices and read all the comments. The demand at this point was not as high as we expected but we will definitely still consider implementing this feature, just maybe not at the highest priority. We also got quite a few feedback on adding other games than E&A so we might have another vote in the future.

The word "denied" was us just trying to have fun to make it look like some official stamp, but it should be "maybe later." We still have the voting enabled as you can see since you can still like this post and we will be monitoring this post from time to time to see the progress and demand.

We wish we can create a snag bar for every single game out there too. But the work involved in just adding one game is extremely tedious. We basically have to check every single link that that certain game posts on the wall and figure out the pattern. Each game has different patterns so we need to adjust or rewrite our code to accommodate that. Then we manually put all of them in a database. We also need to maintain it when new links are posted and also if the game changes the patterns, we need to fix our code or manually go into the database and fix the data. We one time had to fix every single data for Farmville when they changed their image names. Having more games means more maintenance work for all the games to work correctly too. So knowing the demand beforehand really motivates us alot.

We really hope our members understand and have patience with us, and please continue to leave feedback and comments.

Folks, sorry we goofed up on this one! There have been bugs on FB Like all week long, and we were too ambitious trying to shoot for 10k likes. We're going to extend this voting experiment. Check back shortly!

This vote was all for show. It was clear that even without a vote, E and A was next on the GU list. I am very disappointed. Treasure Isle should be done before E & A.

Looks like we've reached 5000 votes :)

i wasn't even made aware of the voting session. is there a way that we can reopen the vote? i have a ton of friends on my profile that play the game & that use the snag bar that weren't aware of the vote either. i know in my house it is me and my husband that play the game and we both have said that it would make playing the game a heck of a lot easier on us. its hard to filter through all your friends and go to each individual wall (yes i know that you have the "my games section" but it doesn't pick up all the feeds from our walls for some reason) and do the helping that way. i say we do a re count! ;)

I see that E&A only missed 500o votes by 48 people cant you reconsider having the snag bar for the gameanyway. It would really be a useful tool. I appreciate it for the games that I play that you do use it for. I see you added for pioneer trail I never saw a vote for that game and it was just released it you can come up with the snag for that game in such a short period of time why can you not do it for E&A I know that much work goes into it but it would really be beneficial I also know several people that did not now about the vote that would have voted in the excess of 20 please do reconsider and make it a prioity

Only 47 "likes" away from 5,000 at the time of this posting. Are we going to get it at 5,000?

sweet game love play all time but needs snag bar hard to get stuff and gifts plzzz add it ty

I absolutely agree that E&A needs a snag bar, it would make the game so much easier. PLEASE ADD IT!!!!!!

Since I rarely come to the forums because my life doesn't need that much more complication and time wasting (the games are enough for me) I was unaware of this until this morning. GU posts tons of stuff on their FB wall, why wasn't this ever mentioned? I'm sure your "likes" are more indicative of the number of people that bother coming to the forums and reading through the posts than they are indicative of how many snag bar users would actually like to see E&A on it.

Please use the snagbar for this. It would make gift accepting soooooo much easier. And this game is terrific as it is. This would only make it more enjoyable. Thank you.

Vote was two times, I think the higher the number of votes!

Only 143 "likes" away from 5,000 at the time of this posting. Are we going to get it at 5,000?

Oh I didn't even know there was a vote on this... dang!

I think 236 is a forgiveable margin.
