Light-bulbA note regarding the GU! app and a Facebook bug

Please_share
by Alan Attebery - Apr 15, 2012 Star_s6,780 views

Hey Gamers,

In the past week, we have gotten a lot of messages from people asking why they are showing up on "the list" as using the Gamers Unite! app when they say they have never installed it. They are then demanding that we remove them from that "list" immediately, if not sooner.

Please note that "the list" is maintained by Facebook, not Gamers Unite!. We do not have anyway of adding anyone to that list, which means we have no way of unadding anyone from that list. If you are on "the list," it means that you either installed the Gamers Unite! app to your Facebook profile at some point, or it means a known Facebook bug is rearing its ugly head again.

If you are showing up on "the list" because you have installed the GU! app to your profile, then you can remove yourself by uninstalling our app. If you have blocked the GU! app, you will need to unblock us first, then uninstall our app. You can then reblock us.

If you are showing up on "the list" yet have never installed the GU! app, then there is nothing we can do for you because it is a Facebook issue. This is a known Facebook app bug that has happened in the past and will likely happen again in the future. You will either have to wait until Facebook fixes this bug, or you will need to contact them and ask them to remove your name from showing up on the list of people using the GU! app.

I love the snag bar- it works well for me. The only problem I have is 1-click gifts! I have many FV gifts on my app page, and I get "success" on about 15 or so, then get the message that a problem with this caused IE to close this session then restart. When it restarts (seconds later), all of my "recieved" gifts are still on the list. Also, the "recieved" gifts for FV and Hidden Chronicles never show up in my gift box. I have uninstalled and reinstalled many times, to no avail. What should I do? I really like the 1-click gifts, and friends, and LOVE the snag bar. Also, I clear out my gift box every few days, so it isn't full. Help?

I've been experiencing issues with the snag bar. At first I thought my internet connection might be an issue.
When I would click on snag it takes me the the snag page.... and then get permissions... then the page would just stay blank... not snag anything. After reading this particular thread I again attempted to snag with the bar I got the error message box
You are almost ready to snag!

I havent used the snag bor for several weeks so theres no way I have reached alimit. I believe that fb has figured a way to block "known" user of the snag bar. jmo :)
However if anyone has any ideas that would be great.

the last little bit i have had loads of probelms with collecting and not showing up on my games. ive loaded and re loaded the toolbar and then the same with GU itself. Im wondering if these recent problems are anything to do with FB or Z

I don't think Facebook or Zynga really care about Gamers Unite or who uses the site. It helps promote their product to new users.

Actually, for the most part, I think neither FB nor Z knows or cares about us. Basically, they're just doing what Giants do. If anything, they like us as small sites that support more usage on FB and more game playing!

Zynga is fighting back too, because lately, their support teams are steering complaints to the "have you installed Chrome--our game looks and plays better under Chrome" [note GU doesn't support Chrome].

I also note that in the last two or three days, Cafe World will not load in Safari, IE, or Firefx.

The only thing I have used GU for is the snag bar. It is so handy gathering up my neighbors requests. I just wish I could collect more than 5 a day from each one.

Facebook has had a war going with GU since as far back as I have been on facebook. GU seems to be the ONLY bonus acquisition app that gets slammed by FB...gee I wonder if that is because GU is the best..... if I have any friends that have a problem with me being listed on FB's hit list then they know what they can do..... I won't be intimidated by FB or anyone else

Questions about the permissions?

So... this means Facebook knows who is using gamers Unite forums but not the Snag Bar. Meh, big deal. They can't suspend user accounts for that. Are they going to tell Zynga on us? LMAO!
