    Hello,

    Yesterday, I received an automated email from Facebook seeing that my Game application has been banned, because a very poor user experience.

    The application is a very cool flash game, the best score after game over is published to user wall, and saved to DB with the last score and level, I was earning 50-70 euro per day from Ads.

    Application rating : 4.2/5 based on more than 1800 reviews.

    I contacted Facebook to re-activate the application, cuz I'm not abusing users or spamming.

    and Today I read in Facebook developers blog that FB banned a high number of apps

    WTF ??

    :confused:

    Contacting fb is wishfull thinking. They don't give a flying fuck about your app. Just make a new one.

    I received an email from support Team, they said that my application can't be re-activated again, because they detected that some users delete the published stories on walls.

    In all my applications, I ask user if he want to publish the score or no :)

    When I replied to the email with the proof that my application is not spammy, They said that the application will be review again

    LOL

    Considering your stable earnings from ads, I would say that it is worth to push fb and make their support team life harder, until you will have this game reactivated. Just make sure that your game is really user friendly (you might even remove that publishing in users wall option and choose opt-in or other advertising form in the end of each game) ;)

    Still waiting for the reply, I read twice the privacy policy, rules to respect, and I found that my application comply 100% with Facebook policy.

    1- I use trusted ads network such Rockyoumedia, lfstmedia.
    2- I ask the user if he want to publish the score or no, only if he reached a new highscore.
    3- The user can deactivate from application settings the publish dialog.

    :)

    They can block it :)

    Every Application have an ID, and Facebook is tracking automatically all application activities, API calls, Spam reports, and will BAN the ID if they want.

    They have to manage hundreds of thousands applications, most of which are useless or scum. No wonder their filtering software is configured to instantly react to any suspicious app behaviour...
