With regard to the question of "why provide advance warning" and "why not provide advance notice and reset"... I agree with the notion that its rude to punish / waste time for the folks that did get in there early.  However, if the goal was to entice (d) players over, keep in mind that many only log in once a week.  That means they may not have seen the Uni 2 notice and may choose not to participate as they are already behind.

I'm equally surprised that nothing has been posted in "Features and Updates" and no new board has been created for the new Universe (a la the Extreme and Original boards).

But, par for the course.

I did not log in via Facebook.

I cannot see any way to invite friends for Crew points other than opening up my entire database of contacts to BFG.  Has anyone found a way around this?

I should be able to invite people one email address at a time...

John Hunka, Aug 25 09:54 (EDT):

We do not store any information from the contact database if that is what your concern is. I will ask about the possibility of single address sending, but it is probably unlikely that a programmers would have time to add this feature.

Colonized a planet 17 minutes ago.

Beat me to it, it seems. Mine (slowed as a fleetsave) landed about 30 minutes ago.

This whole mess with facebook is why I won't invite my friends through the email system. It was easy before, but to have to give them access to my email list is not going to happen. I have family members, like my grandparents whop don't need to be getting a request I know they will ignore anyways, as well as over half my friends. So if I know they will not play why should they be getting an invite? And what every time I add someone new to my emails means that any who did not accept the first time would again have to receive another invite! If someone sent me an invite in my emails more then twice for a game I have no intent on joining I would consider that a small form of harassment. Not a major problem but I have respect for my friends and family. I'd just sooner ask the ones I know either through facebook or individual emails.

I checked it out and it seems that after you invite someone they no longer show up as available to invite as well as any other email addresses you have listed under that name (at least for gmail)

I also requested the link from my friend that they got in their email and posted on my alliance forum in Mafia Boss and today I got my second crew member even though I never emailed anyone else. So all else fails invite yourself with a second email address to get the link and email that to individual people.

poeticmotion: You know what will happen if I oracle-lock you?

Absolutely nothing. I\'ll cuss a few times, mutter "holy crap, I\'m not even going to battlecalc that" and have nightmares about 10000 capitol ships descending upon my homeworld.

Out of curiosity, what is the problem with letting them see your friends list in FB but not your e-mail list?

It doesnt auto-send to everyone in your address book, you select who you wish to send the link too, just like your friends list.

It sorta seems like "You can look in my room when I am naked, but you cant watch me take a shower, that would be horrible!"

I think e-mail is far less effective than direct contact on a social network would be. I dont open crap like this when I get it, lol.

Brute Force, if its not working, you\'re just not using enough.

Giving e-mail address of friends means that they can be targeted for SPAM

While I don't know if BFG sells, trades, or "loans" e-mail lists out - so many others do that as a matter of courtesy to my friends - I never give out their e-mail addresses for any reason without their permission.

/agree

I'm taking the route of just sending the link to the people that I want to invite... Like everyone from my alliance in Universe 1  :twisted:

I started a little late but have jumped 3000 in rank.  I got skillz.  Went from the 5000s to 2000s.  I just unlocked atlas and have AI 2.  I can raid both unguarded ore and crystal mines at the same time now.

Going to close this blob of a thread.

For any of the various discussions / unsolved problems occurring in this post (please no more FB playing posts, Matt posted that they are aware of it), create a new thread in the Universe 2 section.
