Bug Reports / Re: Facebook Javascript load failed

Sorry Matt, I just read that you were recovering from a hospital stay.  My apologies for being insensitive, I didn't know.  Get well soon.

You know it's that kind of condescending attitude that players do not appreciate.  I basically cannot play right now due to this issue.  Granted, it is not your issue, it's Facebook's, BUT I'M NOT USING FACEBOOK and I'm not paying Facebook for this, I'm paying you guys.

So if you guys don't give a **** that Facebook is currently ruining your users experience, then I guess that's your choice.

I may have over simplified how simple it is to dynamically load a js file based on whether you need it or not, I do not have experience with Facebooks API's.  Perhaps some of our other users with Facebook API development experience can chime in on what this script block is for, other than a way to see if a person is logged in through Facebook:

<script src="//"></script>

    appId  : '483457558344251',
    status : true, // check login status
    cookie : true, // enable cookies to allow the server to access the session
    xfbml  : true, // parse XFBML
    channelURL: '//',
    oauth  : false

  window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
    // FB.Canvas.setSize({ height: 2000 })

    // FB.Canvas.setAutoResize();

Ok, so why is it loaded AFTER I'm already logged in?  This is simple developer stuff, unless someone is being lackadaisical and loading it always "just in case"!

This url is failing '', causing all scripts to wait until the connection to Facebook times out before executing.

Is there a reason you guys connect to Facebook even though I'm not playing through Facebook?  I am a developer and I am familiar with using javascript from other sites, but this one is really annoying since it is bypassing the local cache every time it loads.  Couldn't you dynamically load it if the person is connected via Facebook or is that what it does, determines whether you are connected via Facebook?  If so you could load a session variable with that information at login time and variably load the javascript file if it's needed.

This isn't the first time I have noticed Facebook slowing down your site.  Considering there are no ads (thank you, but I do spend at least $20 a month on credits), it seems foolish to have your site's performance affected by Facebook.

I connected to Facebook and notice the same issue loading or connecting to

I've submitted a support ticket.

Is it just me or have the ESP reports stopped showing your losses on the initial report.  They used to show up as icons at the bottom, now we have to click on more to see what we lost.  Was there a compelling reason to remove this?

I think it's a pretty cool idea too!

Even "just cleaning up my own systems" is ridiculous.  I usually search 20 systems either side of each planet times nine planets is 360 systems.  (I also see the smileys, so I'm assuming it's somewhat tongue in cheek.)  I

It does look like some sort of clean up is taking place.  I've noticed less of the small DF clouds around anymore.  Perhaps BFG could program it to delete any DF that is crystal only when an NPC disappears?  Or any DF smaller then say 100K?

+1000 to this suggestion.  It's a real pain to have to put your cursor in the box and carefully count the number of zeros to make sure you are sending 120,000 proms, not 12,000 as in this example posted to our alliance message board.  This happens to someone in our alliance on a reasonably regular basis (in this case it was me):

And it strikes again. It was supposed to be 120,000 proms, not 12,000. sigh....

How about larger boxes on the fleet screen so we can easily see how many ships are being sent (to their death usually if you forgot a zero!)

+1 to the original idea, can we include the current activity marker in the ESP report as of the time the ESP occurs.  I know I could write it down, but I probe hundreds of planets/NPC's a day and it makes no sense to write something down that is already on a computer!

Perhaps he is hitting an EF or LEF?  Those are profitable on the 2nd and 3rd hits.
