Bug: Personal Home Page (in General)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 25 2009 4:31 PM EDT

can we still set one and if so where do we do this?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 25 2009 4:35 PM EDT

Settings -> Update Basic Information

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 25 2009 4:37 PM EDT

hmm, all i have is the change name option by following that path:

Update your profile
(After the first change, you may only change your name once every 30 days.)
followed by the update button and that is it!

home page bug

QBJohnnywas April 25 2009 5:13 PM EDT

That's weird. I've got the option for adding a personal url.

Did you have one before at any point?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 25 2009 5:15 PM EDT

i am not sure that i have tried since cb1...sucks to get old!

i have had clan issues in the past and am wondering if other clan owners who have lost some of their clan option buttons may have the same issue with this one as well.

either way, added it to known issues!

You don't even have a Log out option. I guess CB doesn't want you to have a homepage so you can't leave or log out.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 25 2009 5:24 PM EDT

you are right about the log out...perhaps that is why i am always here. it has been missing since the redesign!

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 25 2009 5:25 PM EDT

Maybe it's a browser issue?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 25 2009 5:28 PM EDT

same issues on newest firefox, ie7 and google chrome.

logout vanishes after linking to facebook

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 25 2009 5:45 PM EDT

i think i created a test account on facebook, but am unsure if i ever linked this account. beer makes dude forgetful!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 25 2009 5:46 PM EDT

I too have lost my ability to update my homepage... however I had one already.

Lochnivar April 25 2009 5:46 PM EDT

Why is it that you want to link us to your match.com account?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 25 2009 5:50 PM EDT

after having a ball & chain for 21 years, why exactly would i seek another? ; )

AdminNightStrike May 1 2009 6:07 PM EDT

So I looked at the code, and facebook users aren't allowed to change either the email address, the display of the email, or the personal URL.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] May 1 2009 6:42 PM EDT

Is it going to remain this way?

AdminNightStrike May 1 2009 7:06 PM EDT

I don't know why facebook users are specifically disallowed from changing these things. I understand the email address, but not the personal URL. I'll have to ask Jon about it.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 1 2009 10:28 PM EDT

thank you nightstrike, i couldn't remember linking my account to facebook, but i guess i did!

is there a way to unlink it then if things are to stay as is?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 2 2009 1:48 AM EDT

I believe I remember Jon saying there wasn't currently a way to unlink... but maybe that can change.

AdminNightStrike May 3 2009 5:56 PM EDT

Correct, there is currently no way to unlink.

Daz May 4 2009 12:18 AM EDT

I asked about this a few times. I want to change my email to the address my facebook account uses, which makes the disallowance a little bit funnier.

AdminNightStrike May 4 2009 12:52 AM EDT

Are you already linked?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 4 2009 1:06 AM EDT


i looked through all of the old facebook threads i could find and never saw any warnings of limited features due to account linking. hopefully it is just a case of unfinished business.

i had wanted to link facebook to hopefully promote cb, if it turns out to have limited me that would be frustrating!

AdminNightStrike May 4 2009 2:25 AM EDT

Unfortunately, after creating the facebook interfaces, facebook decided to redo everything on their end. It broke much of the CB side of things, and now we're kind of stuck in limbo.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 4 2009 8:08 AM EDT

ah that explains much then. i am sure it will work out and for me personally i would rather have the item bugs as a priority for fixes over facebook issues!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 25 2009 11:01 PM EDT

is there any way that the accounts linked to facebook could be reverted?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 25 2009 11:09 PM EDT

after reading the thread again, i guess that question has been answered. perhaps all who are affected can just make legal nub accounts? ; )
