Link-a-Nator

Share:


I have a large mafia and receive lots of Free Gifts everyday.  Facebook limits the number of gifts I can return so not everybody who sends me one will get one back.  In the past I've created links for my mafia to use so they can accept a  Free Gift from me but there are a few steps involved and it takes too long.  Pistol Pete of Spockholm Mafia Tools has figured out a way to automate this process and created a bookmarklet called Link-a-Nator.  With just a few clicks, you can get the links to all of your available Free Gifts.
To start using Link-a-Nator today, follow the steps below.  If you are new to using bookmarklet programs, review my articles on Bookmarklet Installation and Common Problems.

1.  Go to the Spockholm Mafia Tools External Page and locate Link-a-Nator.
2.  Click, Drag and Drop Link-a-Nator into your bookmak toolbar.
3.  Go to you Mafia Wars game and from your bookmark toolbar click on Link-a-Nator once to unframe it.  All Facebook framing around your game should be gone.
 
4.  Click on Link-a-Nator again to activate the program.  Link-a-Nator will work on any unframed Mafia Wars page and your game will look like the image below.  In no time at all you will have a complete list of all your Free Gift links to include tiny urls.
5.  Copy and Paste the link(s) where ever you want them to go.
I use the Bagman Mugger Bookmarklet and faithfully change my Mystery Bag Link every 24 hours.  Ok, I admit that's not true.  I try but sometimes I forget.  Pistol Pete has a Leech Check built in and you can't collect Mystery Bags using Bagman Mugger until you update your link.
If you use the Link-a-Nator, you can use the Mystery Bag Link provided to change the link in your Quotations.  Once I did that, I passed the Leach Check.
Your mafia members can only accept 1 free gift from you every 24 hours.  Not everybody uses bookmarklet programs so I decided to post my Free Gift links in my the Notes section of my Facebook account.  This way anyone who is in my mafia can decide which gift they would like and my Bagman Mugger friends can continue to accept Mystery Bags by using the bookmarklet.  To create a note with your links, go to your Notes Tab and click the "Write a Note" button.  I pasted all my links and added the Date and Time to the title.
When 24 hours go by, I can re-run Link-a-Nator and edit the current note (or delete and write a new). 
I tested a few of my links out and they worked great!

  1. you don't use Arun's Feed Helper?

    Link a Nator hasn't been working properly for me lately (the gifts could be accepted only once) thats when i tried Arun's. it's great for posting a free MB on your wall.

  2. Have you heard of facebook penalizing people for posting links? I had a friend tell me this after I posted a link.

  3. Have you heard of facebook penalizing people for posting links? One rumor ran around that people that had cheat links would have their Facebook Account Disabled.

  13. i never have problems with the link-a-nator

  14. Does anyone know if the Link-a-Nator links expire after 24 hours like Bagman Mugger links? I know one person can only collect from ONE of your links, but can they choose another link the next day, or even the same link? or do you have to post new links?

    and, What is the number of people that can collect from a free gift link? It may be worthwhile to post new links throughout the day if they get used up, similar to Bagman Mugger.

  15. I've addressed this in many posts. You can accept one gift per mafia member per 24 hours. As long as you haven't accepted from someone and they haven't had the max number of people accept, the links are good for months (at least that's as far back as I've been able to document on this blog). It's estimated that 30 people can accept one gift but the exact number is not known.

  16. Hi,
    walking through blogs, i found interesting comment on one of them. Here is part of that comment: "only potential problem of using link-a-nator is that you are using a script which MW / FB might pick up on and suspend your account."
    ...and my comment on this was: This what you indicated in the commentary, is something which worries me for quite a long time. Only, this is a problem no one has yet publicly uttered. And in large number of the blogs are centered instruction for those scripts. And, yes, I agree 100% with your comment, I think it would still be better to build longer, and be able to play.

    So, I am asking you, because you advertise those scripts. Are you not afraid of using them, because honestly I am. What if they close my account because of being lazy or however you wish to name it.
    Sorry if I'm boring you
    take care

  17. "Loading...Be patient..." I waited an hour for it to load, yet nothing. I use an up-to-date PC with Windows7, using Google Chrome.
    Just how long is it supposed to take to load the list?
    Thanks,
    P

  21. YOU PEEPS DO SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB, BUT SOME OF THE PEEPS IN MY MAFIA ARE HAVING TROUBLE USING LINK-A-NATOR, SO I ASKED IF THEY'D CHECKED OUT THIS TUTORIAL - THEY SAID THEY HAD AND STILL COULDN'T FIGURE IT OUT, OR THAT IT DOESN'T WORK . SO WHEN I CAME HERE AND LOOKED AGAIN MYSELF I SAW WHY THEY ARE CONFUSED, THERE SHOULD BE MORE INSTRUCTION AND PICTURES BETWEEN POINT 4 AND POINT 5. THEY ARE EXPECTING THAT AFTER THEY CLICK THE LINK-A-NATOR BOOKMARK THE SECOND TIME THE LINKS ARE ALL GOING TO MAGICALLY APPEAR.
    IF I DIDN'T ALREADY UNDERSTAND THIS BEFORE HAND, I AM SORRY TO HAVE TO ADMIT, I WOULD BE CONFUSED BY THE GAP IN INFORMATION BETWEEN POINTS 4 & 5. HOPE THAT THIS MAKES SENSE TO YOU. I REALLY DO APPRECIATE ALL OF THE HARD WORK AND TIME WHICH YOU LADIES AND GENTS PUT INTO THIS BLOG - THANKS

  30. If you are having problems with firefox shrinking when you run BMs, go to tools >> then to options >> then to content >> you will seen "Enable Javascript"... click the box "Advanced" next to it. In the new window, "untick" the box called "move or resize existing windows"... save changes and your done :-)

  31. Hi I managed to get the link-a-nator on my tool bar but when I click on it nothing happens. Does it work with chrome or do I have to switch browsers for this to work?
