When you add a Facebook bookmark to Game Bonus Checker, it may often be unvisible on Facebook ‘s home page when you have too many bookmarks.
Here’s how you can make it always visible.
On you news feed, in the bookmarks zone, if you put your mouse over the ‘APPS’ title, there’s a ‘MORE’ link, click it to get the list of all your bookmarked apps.
Once on your bookmarks list, find Game Bonus Checker and click the blue pen that’s beside it, you’ll get an option to ‘Add to favorites’, click on this option.
From now the Game Bonus Checker bookmark will always be visible in the ‘FAVORITES’ box.
If you can’t see a game’s posts on your Facebook homepage, then the bonus checker won’t be able to read the posts to search for bonuses.
If you did hide a game’s posts on your homepage, here’s how you can get the posts to show on your homepage again, on my exemple I did hide posts by Farmville.
1- At the very bottom of your homepage, click the link ‘Edit Options’
2- You get a list of all friends and apps that you blocked, find the wanted game and click the cross in front of it, it disapear of the list.
3- Click the ‘Save’ button, from now the game’s post will be visible on your homepage again, and bonus checker will be able to retrieve the list.
The tools provided by Facebook only gives access to facebook’s databases.
When a game developper decides that a bonus can be collected only by 5 friends, for exemple, only the game’s databases has the information of the bonus still being available or not.
Either by using your wall, or using the Bonus Checkers, there’s no way to know if a bonus is still available before you lcick the link.
That’s why Bonus Checker displays all bonuses found on your wall without being able to know if they’re still available in game.
Some people, even without ever trying the bonus checkers or knowing what they are, put it on the ‘cheating apps’ bag. Here’s why the bonus checkers applications are not cheat apps.
According to Facebook’s and games developper’s ToS cheating is always relating to either automation or getting things you shouldn’t get.
- bonus checkers will never get you anything that is not posted on your wall
- bonus checkers don’t automate any action, you have to manually click the links to gather the bonuses
Bonus checkers don’t use anything else than tools provided by facebook to read the walls, in fact it never reads the wall, it directly ask facebook’s databases for the data using tools coded by facebook and given to application developpers, these tools for exemple don’t allow to read posts that aren’t visible on your wall (that’s why when you hide a game’s feed on wall, the related bonus checker won’t work).
The links you click on bonus checkers are exactly the same as the links you’d click on your wall, you easily can verify that comparing the links of bonus checkers and wall (right click->copy the link’s adress).
The bonus checkers won’t do anything while you’re not in front of your computer (unlike some well know apps that you launch, go to work, and enjoy the bonuses when you’re back home). As said above, you have to manually click the links, it won’t even look for new bonuses while you’re not there, it only looks for new bonuses when you refresh the page.
If you have any other questions, feel free to post a comment, I’ll edit this page based on reactions.
Sometimes you get the following message:
“Application Temporarily Unavailable
The URL http://something.checker.karedas.org/ did not respond.
Sorry, the application you were using is experiencing a problem. Please try again later.”
Even when applications servers are running fine, facebook sometimes throw this error as if it wasn’t able to reach bonus checkers servers.
You just have to refresh the page with F5, the applications will be correctly displayed with less than 2 refresh.
This is the old version related to old facebook’s interface. The tutorial to unhjide posts on new Facebook interface can be found there.
If a game’s posts are hiden from your wall, the bonus checker won’t be able to read the posts to search for bonuses.
If you did hide a game’s posts on your wall, here’s how you can get the posts to show on your wall again, on my exemple I did hide posts by Frontierville.
You have to be on your home with Top News option:
1- If you’re not on your home click home on top right corner of Facebook
2- Click on “Top news” (if its black and bold you’re on top news already”
3- Scroll to the very bottom of the wall and click on “Edit Options” link
4- In the window that pops click on “Applications”
5- Find the game you want the posts’ to appear on your wall and click “Add to news feed” button
6- Click on Close button
The posts will be back on your wall.
