Mafia Wars Permissions Pop Up Change


I haven’t seen the ‘Ask for Permissions’ popup in a very long time. I remember back in the day when it popped up non-stop until you caved and gave the Mafia Wars App permission for whatever it wanted [1]. I got this today and noticed that a ‘Don’t show me this again’ option was added. I don’t know if this is new or I just haven’t seen it in years. Perhaps Facebook mandated that gaming Apps stop harassing players into granting permission for things the players may not want to grant permission for. The wording on the popup is also different and mentions in-game activities. Hopefully this is a step in the right direction to fixing the news feed issues. Since I haven't gotten this popup in years, it's possible the changes occurred a very long time ago. Please comment if you know more about it.



  1. I have been getting harassed every day on an almost hourly basis by them asking for permission to post as me, which I dont want to give them, and also to access my private chats which they have no business seeing. Finally found a way to mostly fix it by running chrome reloader in another window in which MW is running. The dont show again is definitely new. I am going to try and see if I can get it to pop up to end this once and for all. One day from midnight to 5am they had asked me for permissions 7 times and I was getting ready to quit the game.

    1. Now instead of the normal pop up, I am getting this one instead. https://scontent-lax.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xat1/v/t1.0-9/11146207_10204124216410263_8969246989038923762_n.jpg?oh=b4dc04ddb7e207864fc18527d4a2e394&oe=55DA6967

    2. I'm getting the same one, John--constantly!

  2. I've been getting this for weeks. No matter how often I click "don't show me this again" it reappears every day, several times a day. If it worked, it would be great, however. like most things at the moment, it doesn't, at least for me :(

  3. same here i get it alot and click no and dont ask again but keeps coming back....it messes up when fighting on assassanator it will cancel the fighting and boot me out of the script...really burns my shorts.

  4. I wish they'd do the same for this annoying one!
