    Have you noticed that pop up that blocks your content on FB if you are not logged in? It says some nonsense like "See more of The Settlers Online by logging in to Facebook", from time to time it pops in right in the middle, and you cannot close it so it always blocks at least bottom part of the screen. Depending on resolution it may be significant part of the screen. Then it hides the whole thing begging us to "log in to continue" with no way out other then close the page and reopen again. Behaviour typical for malware. I'm not saying you shouldn't use FB, but it would be nice to have the same content on forums too. I'm definitely not ready to submit to FB sneaky manipulative techniques and create FB account just to see TSO. Clearly FB doesn't want us to see your content without controling us. Why then should you support this treacherous sister of Big Brother?

    So yes, +111 for this suggestion.

    Imo it's a reason for every good company not to support FB in general or at least not to place exclusive content on FB.
    Technically the "problem" is within Facebook responsility, only it's not a "problem", but calculated technique aiming to limit even passive usage of FB platform and force people to log in or to create an account if they want to read on it, so something on the verge of dirty marketting techniques. This way FB actually restricts TSO promotion on their platform.
    The reason I posted this here, not as complaint to FB, is that first I don't want to have anything to do with FB, second BB can easily do us a favour by placing the same content both here on their forums and on FB with links to both as a courtesy to those of us who dislike this controling and spying monster called facebook and refuse to support it. And of course it is a response to MOD saying that we don't need an account to view their content on FB, which statement imo deserved some correction..

    Interesting mirror. The morse code isn't mirrored but the translated letters are.

    Sorry, but no-one is forcing you to use Facebook whatsoever. You're still perfectly able to log in here and play the game without it. I've seen some pretty baseless gripes on here over the years, but this whole thread trumps them all. If you don't want to use Facebook, then that's your prerogative. However, there are millions of folks out there that do and I, for one, applaud any attempt BlueByte makes to tap into that market in order to help sustain the game.

    I avoid social media (this forum being my only exception) and I don't think it's fair to expect people to go into 'uncomfortable' territory just to stay even with others.

    The "Free Gems" was bad enough - leaning more to the mass gathering of anything available instead of appealing to the hard core players - I hope pop-up ads are not next (in which case I am gone).

    Leave this as it is - post in the forums or in the game main menu and I would be very grateful.
