There are quite a few of us on this web site who are either confused as to how to connect to Facebook, or who have been told by senior members that one can no longer connect Comic Vine to Facebook. In either case, the Facehugger quest stares us down as an impossible quest, an accomplishment that cannot be fulfilled. 
 
I thought perhaps that we should band together and try to suggest a solution to this problem. Perhaps everyone can get credit for the Facehugger quest immediately, or by clicking Like on the Comic Vine on Facebook module on the front page. Perhaps this quest can simply be replaced by something equally simple. Perhaps it can be fulfilled by doing some secret quest that has nothing to do with connecting Facebook and Comic Vine. Perhaps this quest can be simply removed. 
 
So, join in here. What do you think would be the best method of remedying this problem? Add your name to the petition to remedy the Facehugger quest problem.

All you have to do is hit one of the "like" buttons scattered across the site. There's even one on the front page.

it doesn't work, I've done that, I signed in, and it shows up on my facebook, I even went so far as to unlike and try again, I've removed comicvine from my list of apps on facebook and the feeds still connect to facebook even though I've removed permission and through all of that, I still don't have quest credit lol.
 
It is clearly broken, I can include screenshots of the wackiness if necessary.

@The Dark Huntress: I went to the front page and liked the Facebook thing. I signed into Facebook. It shows up on my Facebook. I even became friends with Comic Vine on Facebook. Nothing. Today, I tried to undo my liking of Comic Vine in order to do it over again, but the Like sign is grayed out. If you start an alt Comic Vine and Facebook account, I'm sure that you'll experience the same thing. I haven't encountered a single person who can give me any answer other than "It's broken." We're simply hoping it gets fixed.

Quote pulled from another thread:

The Facebook connect stuff has been removed. We're not supporting it anymore.
-RED L.A.M.P

Not sure where the user got it from though.

I am all in favor of credit across the board or replacing it with an obtainable quest.
#17 Posted by leokearon (1803 posts) - - Show Bio

Agreed

@pikahyper: That's the same quote I had posted on a blog I wrote about the subject. I feel like some moderators know that it doesn't work and some still believe it does. And apparently the ones who do either are not capable of doing something about it, don't know what they can do about it, or simply don't think it's an issue. If we talk about it enough, maybe somebody will change it.

There's nothing that the mods can do about it. It would be up to staff.

I had problems with it also.  I tried to link Facebook and the vine.  I hit the new account instead, and it created a new comic vine accout!  I didnt want to redue all the quests on that new profile, so I just let it go!  I talked with Shatterstar severel times and he gave me some options to try........but none of them worked!  I tried to talk to G-Man about it but never got a resonse.  Im not worried about it that bad.  If I eventually figure it out.awesome, if not...........O well!
