Nice update.
Is there a size limit of screenshots we can share ?

TSAdmin 08-10-2013 03:37 AM

That's actually pretty neat. Great way for managers to be able to get news up quickly!

Would be nice if certain servers that shall remain unmentioned would stop abusing the news feed with "<3" messages, and only post when they've got something useful to show.

Admins 08-30-2013 09:00 PM

They didn't abuse, need to add some detection of cover-image update maybe. Right now it's adding each message, image post etc. as something which is shown in the news. But cover image update doesn't happen that often. It's not the fault of the one who updated the page.

Crono 08-30-2013 09:17 PM

That's a lot of spam from UN for stuff that's hardly "news"...:)

Maybe a tool on the Server which is only posting to the login server ? So posting on the Facebook page is not posting to the news feed? Could solve this issue

Cover image update I can understand being out of their control, but if I open Graal right now, here's what I see (in order of appearance):
  • Friday, August 30: Unholy Nation, "Double EP Weekend"
  • Friday, August 30: Unholy Nation, "Double EP Weekend"
  • Wednesday, August 28: Unholy Nation cover photo update. Completely out of their hands in terms of showing in-game or not, no big deal. Perhaps something could be programmed on your end Stefan to avoid parsing these though?
  • Wednesday, August 28: Unholy Nation new cover photo with a "<3" text along with it.
  • Wednesday, August 28: Unholy Nation, "Double EP Weekend"
  • Wednesday, August 28: Unholy Nation, "Double EP Weekend" with an advertise asking for players to come join them for events!
  • Tuesday, August 27: Graal Kingdoms announcing a new event to take place.
  • Monday, August 26: Graal Kingdoms announcing a rather significant update to something that's a substantial part of their actual gameplay.
  • Monday, August 26: Unholy Nation announcing an update.

So let's see... in those TWO days, both Unholy Nation and Graal Kingdoms announced an upcoming event and a content update. On top of that, Unholy Nation "reminded" people twice of their event, while also "spamming" something no one really cares about with their heart post.

I'm not trying to run an anti-Unholy Nation campaign here, but it would be nice if servers could take into consideration that their Facebook updates show up ingame now, and therefor limit them to actual upcoming event and new update announcements (without reminding us about the event 3 times in 2 days, there's not enough news posts from servers in total for there to be a need for it to begin with).

Maybe add two tabs: updates and community? Facebook updates will be pushed to the community page and a seperate mechanism can be used to push to the updates page?

alissalee 08-31-2013 07:34 AM

or just post as wall post like i do for Atrius. they are just lazy and want to be cool posting under the facebook page.
