How to show your Scrabble score on your Facebook Wall

I know it should be as easy as allowing Scrabble to post news through the Applications > Settings option. However, it does not work that way. Must be some bug or something. At any rate, my wife and I have been trying to figure it out for the longest time. How come our friends are able to post their wins and words for which they had smashing scores on their Wall, and we can't? It hardly seemed fair. So yesterday I decided to search outside of Facebook and try Googling for the answer (now why didn't I think of that before?)

It turns out that others have the same dilemma as we have. In one discussion group, somebody suggested going to the Applications Settings page, but through a different route. I tried that, played one game last night, and voila! a notice popped out asking if I want to post this news, then there it was, on my Wall.

So here's how you do it.

Instead of going through "Settings" at the top-right menu, click "Profile" at the top left instead. This is located to the right of the "Home" link.

Click on "settings" located below the "Share button."

At the bottom of the list is "Application Settings". Click on "application settings page."

Look for "Scrabble Worldwide" in the list, click on "edit settings" and the pop-up will appear. Make sure "Allow Scrabble Worldwide (excluding U.S. and Canada) to publish ob-line stories automatically, but prompt me for larger stories."

Click the "okay" button.
Hope that works for you! If it doesn't, don't lose sleep over it :-).

Here's another take on the "problem":
In another conversation in Facebook, one person observed that if you are logged in but you open a new tab or window and play Scrabble there, your Scrabble update will not appear on your wall. Also, look out for a yellow triangle with an exclamation point (a warning sign) at the bottom of the Facebook page. If it is there, then your Scrabble news will also not appear on your Wall. Tricky, isnt it?

Well... I just finished playing another game where I won but it did not display on my Wall. :-( Help?
