I fail.

 

I tried to enter my Facebook ID in my profile, but I'm clearly doing something wrong here.  My Facebook name is Spooty MacFrugal (yeah, yeah... I know - but it was an old pen-name under which I used to write.)

 

Entering "Spooty MacFrugal" doesn't do the trick. "SpootyMacFrugal" doesn't seem to have any better results, either.

 

What am I doing wrong, here? dunno

 

P.S. As a further insult to injury, I typed this out on my iPad last night, but managed to hit "Cancel" instead of "post" after the math quiz. <--Fail duncecap

I got to your facebook page through Chinny's link. On a side note, I overheard Fiddlerman discussing a new banner for the site. With your background in backgrounds (see what I did there) maybe you guys could collaborate on a new banner. I went to your profile information on this site and clicked on the direct link to your face book page and it brought up some young woman's page with a name nothing like Spooty! I don't know what is wrong with your link, maybe try to edit it in your profile.

I don't think I'd want to visit a FB page of a woman with a name anything like "Spooty," anyway, so you're probably better off...cool

 

I'll keep trying to sort out my link.

On further investigation, I hovered my cursor over Chinny's facebook link and it read:

http://facebook.com//CandiceChin

 

Not sure why they are different. You could try surfing to your page and cut and paste the url into your facebook link on your profile page on Fiddlerman.

I'll try that. Back in just a moment.

 

Try again. I think I've figured it out. Either that, or I've just left my account open to hacking...dazed

Which one, though? Useable link or Hacktastic back door? 😉

^ thats odd it should be just one '/' before 'candicechin'

and I have numbers too but fb introduced a once off link name thingo. otherwise mine would be a bunch of numbers too.... im not sure if you can still request for a user name fb link to replace the numbers anymore, i think you can still do it! dazed

I guess I should have been more specific. The link works, and I am not a hacker, cracker, social terrorist, script kiddi or any other type of malicious person.

I didn't fail !!!

Thanks for the links Chinny, and I can't believe you are an Aussie .. for some reason I thought you were Canadian.  I think there are only 2 of us, but if I'm wrong, will someone please correct me?

Spooty, I've sent a request to you as well.  I love your bio.

Ok ... update ... I failed after all.  I wondered why I don't have the 'f' logo on my posts, so I went to profile and added my name under the facebook entry.

FAIL

I assume it's more complicated than that ...

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

I took care of it for you Robyn. I had to use your facebook profile id instead of your nick. Do you really have a reserved nickname on facebook?
