FB, slightly less beta (in General)

Old FB accounts are gone. If you go to the fb app page you'll get to link your existing account to FB.

There's not really any point in doing so unless you already use FB or plan to. (More advanced FB integration like stats, news items, etc. are still coming. Maybe tomorrow...) And there are probably still bugs, although I have verified that linking and "widescreen" (non-fb layout) mode works.

I'm scared, i dont think i get it... is it just another way to play CB...through FB (like my account right now) or do i make a FB account...thats different from my current one?

> i dont think i get it

then you can safely ignore the FB threads. :)

Thanks Jon! The account must really have needed to be shot...since I now can log in via Facebook! But um...that means just one more account needs killing...


Also: Tutorial:

"Great! One last step, then you're done with the tutorial. Let's go to the weapons store and buy a better weapon for your first Minion.

Put your mouse over Businesses under Quick Links on the left, and select Weapons."

That's actually under Stores in the upper right of the TopBar, as I will now call it.

That's all I caught out-of-place in the tutorial, fantastic! :D

I love it, Jonathan... You make it all seamless and easy and intuitive -- I'm a programmer and your web delivery prowess is soooo far beyond me that I feel like a kid at Christmas when I experience all you have done for this game.

I welcome the new era with tremendous gratitude and anticipation for new beginnings!

Love your new picture -- the best to you and your family! Where's Grant? *smile*

my FB account isn't deleted yet, its called Henk Bres[FB]

To clarify, the accounts weren't deleted, just moved "out of the way" so you can link your real account. I'm lazy so I'm leaving the actual deletion to the process that automatically deletes idle accounts. :)

Is there a way to put or referral code on our facebook page so we get the referral if they click on the App. on our page? Sorry to dig this thread back up.
