  • How to successfully accept gifts and requests

    No, it's not really that bad!

    Here's a little guide to accepting CA requests and gifts.

    Some generals:
    Accepting gifts can seem like an endless procedure, getting forwarded from CA to the facebook request page and back to CA countless times. Sadly, this is necessary due to some rules put up by facebook. Just be patient and you'll be able to receive all your gifts.

    (...since so many people seem to have trouble with this particular bit, I shall highlight it) - Make sure you always accept your gifts right away. Each friend can only send you one gift at a time. So as long as you haven't accepted it, your name won't show up on their list and they will not be able to send you another one. Same goes the opposite way: if you find your friend list for sending gifts nearly empty, then your friends simply haven't accepted and received their gifts yet. You will only be able to send one, once they have accepted the first gift.


    How to go about accepting gifts:

    There seem to have been issues with lost gifts if gifts were accepted from the request page when the person had not been on CA yet that day. So I suggest you log onto CA (stash your gold, do some fights and quests or whatever it is you like to do first thing) and do this before trying to accept any gifts. Once on CA, click on the gift tab, then on 'invite'. You will then see a few pictures of people who have sent you gifts.

    Click 'accept'

    This will lead you to your facebook request page where you will be able to find requests. Due to certain rules implemented by facebook, it is necessary to accept each request individually.
    You may have clicked on 'accept' for one person, but once you're on the request page, another person's gift shows up on top. Don't worry about the difference in names. Just accept the top gift on your facebook request pag.

    This will lead you back to your CA page, where you will be asked whether you have more gifts to accept. Click yes if you do, no if you don't.

    Do this until all the pending requests are done.



    Errors and solutions:

    It sometimes happens that an error occurs when you accept a gift. For example, the page may not load properly and you end up on a white page with an error message in the middle instead of on CA. If this happens, don't panic. Nothing is lost yet. All you have to do is click on 'try again' until you're forwarded to CA. That way you will receive your gift.

    If, however, you missed out on a gift because you went back to the facebook home page instead of clicking on 'try again' (no worries, it happens to all of us every now and again), you will lose the gift. In that case, you will still see the gift pending on CA, but when you click to accept it doesn't show up in your request page any more. If this happens, make sure you first accept ALL the gifts that are still visible on your facebook request page. Once all of them have been accepted, go to your CA gift 'invite' tab and click 'accept all'.
    'accept all' will give you a warning that you will lose the gifts. That way your friend will still get accepted into your army. Also, they are now free to send you another gift


    If all else fails, use:

    Code:
    http://apps.facebook.com/castle_age/gift_accept.php?act=acpt&rqtp= gift&uid=
    ...i had to leave a space before gift&uid= to avoid the word filter. Get rid of the space in order to use the link.

    and add the user ID of the person to accept to the end.
    If the requests should ever turn up on your facebook request page, please do not ignore them. The gift limit has been put down to 16 at the moment for the very reason that a number of players used the link I've just given you above and then ignored on facebook... which facebook then marks as spam and cuts down on the number of invites we can send.

    ...and another suggestion:
    Originally posted by Slayer Steve View Post
    I found it best to go into CA and at the home page it says (someone) has sent you a (gift). Remember who and what they sent, then click accept gifts and it takes you to the FB reqs page. Accept that specific gift from that person and you end up in CA gifts page. Dont click yes or no but instead go to the CA home page and it shows another gift, repeat the process til you have no more CA gift requests.

    I find I have a problem when the gift doesn't show in CA but does show in FB if I click to accept it I get the same half white screen everyone else gets. I have heard that gifts take longer to show up in CA than in FB so I have one left in FB that never showed in CA so I will leave it alone and hope it shows in CA.
    Can everyone try my solution ie go from CA home page click accept and only accept (FB) the specific gift u accepted in CA then move back to the CA home page to repeat.
    and another one:

    Facebook Chat also seems to interfere with the Gift receipt process.

    Someone in our Guild wasn't having any problems during the Great Golden Egg Debacle, and we finally realized that the only thing that they were doing different from everyone else in our group was that they never logged into chat. If you log out of Facebook Chat (Chat - Options - Go offline), before accepting gifts, or doing other things that might be glitchy at the moment, your results seem to improve considerably. I haven't had any problems accepting gifts since I started doing this.
    Or try King Hrothbeort's method:
    Go to the army page: http://apps.facebook.com/castle_age/army.php
    For each gift you will see accept/ignore links.
    Copy, but be sure not to click the "ignore" link
    Paste in it to your browser
    (It will look like: apps.facebook.com/castle_age/gift_accept.php?act=ignore&rqtp= gift&uid=[some FB ID number here])
    Change "ignore" to "acpt"
    (Now it will look like apps.facebook.com/castle_age/gift_accept.php?act=acpt&rqtp= gift&uid=[same FB ID number here])
    Hit return. You will have to do this for each gift.
    Click all the "accept" buttons on your Facebook page. This doesn't do anything, but will prevent the number of gifts you can send each day from being lowered.

    'accept all' will give you a warning that you will lose the gifts. Never mind, as the request is gone from the facebook page, it is lost already anyway. There's no way to receive it now. So 'accept all' is the best thing you can do That way your friend will still get accepted into your army. Also, they are now free to send you another gift
    Or when in CA, instead of clicking "accept all", right click on "Ignore", copy the link, paste the link in address bar do not hit enter and replace "ignore" with "acpt" (without "") then hit enter.. That way you want loose the gift

      I made the stupid mistake of pressing blocking permenantly 1-2 of my CA mates from Facebook Request page.

      Now when I get gifts from them they appear in CA but not in the facebook request page. How do I unblock them from the request page so I can accept gifts from them again?

        Go to privacy settings, you'll find a list with blocked people there... just remove the two you accidentally blocked
        http://www.facebook.com/privacy/?ref=mb

        Their requests won't show up on facebook later, facebook automatically ignores them for you, so you won't be able to receive them even now... but at least you'll be able to receive in the future.


        Punkle, didn't know about that one, thanks, I'll add it to the main top bit.

          Are they friends of yours? If they are you should be able to bring up your Facebook settings page and remove them from the block list that appears on the first page that comes up after clicking settings/privacy.

          Hope that helps you with that. = )

              Your solution is already mentioned..go to army page and do following :

              Or when in CA, instead of clicking "accept all", right click on "Ignore", copy the link, paste the link in address bar do not hit enter and replace "ignore" with "acpt" (without "") then hit enter..

                this is different.

                i think this is different, but if not i apologize for my ignorance.

                the screen reads
                "Donna has sent you a flame bow!
                Send Gifts to friends / Accept Gifts"

                every time i click "Accept Gifts" it shoots me back to my FB request page.
                i don't understand,
                D.
