Mafia Wars: Facebook Blocks Copying of Game Requests
Facebook is always making things complicated and difficult for all online games. A change was made a few days back that prevents people from copying the links and text of Mafia Wars requests. This is bad change for players who want to post their ices on war pages or share their War, Daily Takes or Promotion links with their friends without the aid of scripts. You will notice that there is a dotted border around the link and description of all requests now. Anything inside the outlined area can not be copied. Go try it. Upon inspection of the back code, Brandon found the code below which comes from Facebook. It’s clear they are trying to stop us from copying anything on a application request. Fortunately Brandon will have a script for us to bypass this road block very soon.
In the past, to share a link all you had to do was copy the link location and paste it a group or person to share it. We often do this to share our Daily Takes, Level Up promotions and Wars when we don’t want the bots to steal them all.
Stuff can be copied once it is published. If you want to share your request links or descriptions, you must first publish them and then copy from the request. If you want to keep them off the news feeds, you must edit the post before publishing it. Find the drop down arrow at the bottom left of the “Share” button and click on it.
From the menu, click on “Custom”.
Select “Only Me” from the second drop down menu.
Click on “Save Changes”.
Now find your post in your Timeline.
Copy and paste as you have in the past. This is just way more extra steps than we are used to.
