Invite your friends - tool
A new tool that may help to find many new players :)
You may now add your contacts as friends and invite them to join us at FICGS in a single click. See at the bottom of "My messages" page, above the connected players list.
Many features will be added soon to this tool !

Only predefined email addresses ?
I can invite only frieds who have one of these freemail - email addresses ?

Hotmail / Gmail / Yahoo... inviter
Hi Hannes, I just added the tool but of course in a few hours / days it will be possible to add anyone by entering his email address.
The point of this hotmail / gmail / yahoo / aol / indiantimes (and so on..) inviter is only to gain time by identifying all your friends in one click -and to spread the message easily- .. (all emails are stored in FICGS database only) this kind of tool is used by major social networks like MySpace, Hi5 and others...
Also it will be possible to gain Epoints by using it.

Hotmail bug fixed
Now it is possible to add friends from Hotmail (hotmail.com only), the bug has been fixed.
If you have more than 100 contacts, you may win 10 Epoints in seconds to play money games :)

It is now possible to add friends by entering their emails (unlimited). It also sends an invitation to them by email.
See "My messages" (bottom -> email mode) for more details.

Is it possible to invite friends from FICGS?
Ben Milton (2008-12-22 06:37:49)
How long does it take for the E points on my account to be updated after i have added people?
Benjamin Block (2008-12-22 08:01:19)
When i did it did┤nt take any time. I just checked and all the e-points was there.
Ben Milton (2008-12-22 10:42:06)
I just added 100 people and there is no change in my account.
Thibault de Vassal (2008-12-22 20:48:12)
Ilmars & Ben
Hi Ilmars, yes it is possible (if you know their email)
Ben, did you use the inviter mode or email mode ? The Epoints are only added in the inviter mode (it would be too easy to enter an infinity of wrong emails in the other mode).
Ben Milton (2008-12-23 10:18:20)
WOW, are you serious... It took me at least half an hour to copy paste the emails one by one. Would it be possible for me to get the Epoints because i really prefer not to give out passwords.
Thibault de Vassal (2008-12-23 16:24:15)
I understand that but be sure I wouldn't take any risk on this, no passwords nor usernames are stored, and there is no way to catch it, particularly if you use the SSL (https://) mode. I can't even know your password at FICGS -which may be the same- that is encrypted with a complex function. Security has always been an important issue for me, I know that many sites using this kind of inviter (often related to MSN) then use passwords to send spam & virus.. that's not the case here.
Only the emails are stored to locate your friends, definitely it makes no sense to give Epoints in the 'email mode'.. anyone may enter bob.. , bob2.. , bob3.. and so on. Sorry about that.
Thibault de Vassal (2008-12-24 14:10:24)
By the way one very secure way is to change your password just before & after having used the inviter.
