Unofficial Facebook Group

This is all offtopic ... but ...

How can that even be possible?

Same as Wii. Motion/contact sensors. It's an add-on.

Speaking of THW, are there any hiveworkshop facebook pages?

Great question. 5 second search revealed this:

clicky clicky ->

Back on point. What would you want a mobile app to do that you can't do using your mobile web browser?
 
This Facebook group is definitely not official. Just take a look, it seems to only advertise stuff that Sephiroth_VII made...

I emailed him and I got no response. If we report it to facebook they will likely take it down. It violates their community standards. I do this a facebook page would be advantageous. I'm not sure how we could regulate it. Maybe only allow admins to post on it and others to comment. It could announce contests and top resources.

We have tried to contact the owners of the false Hive Workshop facebook pages to no avail. The next step is to contact the facebook management team directly.

But like Ralle said, feel free to help us take them down. It would be much appreciated! Seeing as we are planning on making an official Hive facebook page, it would help to get rid of all the fake ones.

The false/fake Hive Workshop facebook pages are listed below:

When reporting, the reasons that pop up are:
- I just don't like it
- It's harassing me or someone I know
- I think it shouldn't be on Facebook
- It's a scam
- I think it's an unauthorized use of my intellectual property
and you may only select one.

Options 4 and 5 somewhat fit. But which did you choose Legal?

Thank you :)

By all means, invite others to do the same. Another thing people can do, is to send them a message asking the owners to kindly take down their facebook pages imitating Hive.

EDIT:

doomhammer99, the creator of https://www.facebook.com/thworkshop/ (The Hive Workshop) has agreed to take the page down (it will take 14 days).
As a token of our appreciation for complying to our demand we will grant every creator who has an account here a small amout of reputation points, if the creator takes down his or her Hive facebook page.

Don't go ahead and make a new Hive facebook page, though. This offer only applies to the unofficial pages listed above. Any member of our community found to have created a new facebook page imitating Hive, will not get reputation points but rather a penalty.
