Facebook not linking with Farmtown

Farmtown is not currently working on Facebook, in fact the bookmark has dissapeared from everybodies apps list.  And if you try to go directly to http://apps.facebook.com/farmtown/ you get this page could not be found or expired error message.

They are expecting to have this problem sorted in about 1 hours time.

Damn Facebook Apps

At the beginning of last week I stumbled across some Facebook Apps for sale on SitePoint.com.  A collection of 22 TV show club apps, 2 action apps, and 1 win cash prize for earning the most points.  Anyway, I handed over payment to the seller on the 20th and have only heard from them once since then.  Luckily I used PayPal to make the payment, but I am still not real happy about this.  The last time I had to deal with PayPal, it took, I think from memory, something like 2 months to get the money back.  And as far as I can tell if the seller empties his bank account that is linked to PayPal, then PayPal has nothing to retrieve.  I assume in this situation I get the ‘sorry cant help ya’ response, and they blacklist the seller.  Doesn’t help me any though.

The annoying part is, I put down this biggish investment, in the hope to make some good revenue off the Apps, after they paid for themselves, which should of been after about 5-6 months, judging by previous performances.  I even started formulating ideas on how to make them more interesting and popular, and even started actively participating on 1 of them.  Now, not only do I have to try and find some spare cash in the short term to fill the hole left in my pocket, but depending on PayPal’s success I may be out of pocket in the long term also.  Bugger, bugger, bugger.

I guess it is a waiting game now…
