At last you can send out invites to other Chieftains without having to befriend them on Facebook first. The idea is that you are given a code that others can use to invite you and you can use their code to invite them. Just go to your Chieftains page and follow the instructions there.

Flogging a dead VikingEdit
A new tweak has been added for those who like to bounty hunt. If a Viking over level 300 has been inactive for 6 or more months there is a chance that they can now be hit-listed. More here.

Real Clan Size RestrictionEdit
Kano has decided to put an upper limit on the number of friends you can have as clan to 3,000. They have decided to put this limit in place as they are planning to implement a change which means that you will no longer have to be Facebook friends in order to join forces. This would have resulted in an unlimited amount of friends whereas at the moment this is limited to the 5,000 which is the maximum amount of friends you can have on Facebook.
If you do have too many clan then you may have noticed a new message asking you to remove some Clan members. For those falling foul of the new clan limit a batch deleter will be made available in order do this more easily and at no cost. You will of course have to send all these ex-players a clan invite in order to clear them from your Friends Playing Viking Clan list

Myspace: Game OverEdit
In a surprise move similar to that made by Hi5 back in January last year, MySpace has made the announcement that from today it is to stop hosting games on it's site. This is what Kano had to say about the situation:
On June 6, we found out through a post here on the forums that Myspace would be discontinuing support for games on Classic Myspace (they never contacted us directly). On June 11, they did exactly that, again without further notice.
Our team worked quickly and, with helpful feedback from the player base, launched Kano Play Myspace, a direct mirror of the games as they had been on Myspace where players could continue gaming.
Anyone playing on MySpace still has the opportunity to switch their KANO/APPS games to the Kanoplay/MySpace site (details here).

New Crates feature introducedEdit
Available from today is a new way to get your hands on favour point items. Crates are available to buy at a cost of 20 FPs for one or 56 FPs for 3. The crates come in 3 flavours: Attack, defense and balanced. Each crate gives you one item. The item can be from a selection of 4 ranging from legendary (stats of 466), rare, uncommon down to common (stats of 337 - 342). Could be good value for those with hired clan as the minimum stats are better than those of the 15% and 10% discounted items.

Calender and Gifts for FebruaryEdit
For the monthly calender event the completion gift is the weapon, Klout Hammer [200/100].
This month we have a very unusual set of gifts. The fact is that there are none, at least so far this month.
A new feature was added today that allows a guild member to publish their boss link directly to the private message board of their guild. This has always be possible to do but the new feature just makes it far less of a chore.
Surprisingly this feature is also available on the MySpace version. Previously doing this on MySpace for just your guild was only possible by using the ASK FOR HELP button which alerted ALL your clan then publishing a message saying that the boss was available in your message feed (even then only those in your guild you were clanned with could access your feed).

New Monthly Calendar Challenge and Gifts for JanuaryEdit
Since it looks like KANO/APPS will be giving us new gifts and calender challenges on a monthly basis I will post them together from now on.The main prize for completing the first calender challenge of the year is the weapon, Kano Krucible [101/182].
On the gift front the new year brings yet another month with nothing exciting to report. We have the: Raven Feather, Model Longship, Viking Dogwhistle and for a healthier option, a Juicy Apple.
