The Cookie-a-Nator

Share:

Those of us who don't know much about computers know all too well that cookies and Mafia Wars don't always play nice together. Some cookies you want and others are just junk that eventually interfere with your game. As the Spocks like to say "We have a Spocklet for that". The Cookie-a-Nator will list all of your cookies and provide an option to remove the ones that aren't necessary.
You won't find the Cookie-a-Nator on the Spockholm Mafia Tools site yet but you can add it to your Spockholm Toolbar. Click on the Config button.
Now select the "Own Spocklets" tab.
Copy the code below.

eyJuYW1lIjoiQ29va2llLWEtTmF0b3IiLCJzcmMiOiJodHRwOi8vc3BvY2tsZXQuY29tL2Jvb2ttYXJrbGV0L2Nvb2tpZS1hLW5hdG9yLmpzIiwicGFnZSI6IiJ9

Click on the "Import Spocklet from code" button and paste the code into the box and click "OK".
The Cookie-a-Nator will now appear on your Spockholm Toolbar.
Now all you need to do is click on it when you want to review and clear out your cookies. For those who don't know what they are looking at or simply don't care, just click on the "Delete Junk" button. Nothing visually eventful happens but your junk cookies get deleted.
If you want more control which cookies stay and which ones go, use the "Cookies" tab for a list of your individual cookies. There is a delete link and you can remove the ones you choose.
The Storage Tab also lists stuff you can delete. Maybe Eike can update this post as I have no idea what it all means. I just stick with the "Delete Junk" button and I'm happy.

Update by Eike:
Generally, everything that contains Spockholm or the name of a Spocklet in the name is from us. For example rj_brazil_cookie has the settings for RJ brazil, or inv_hist_history the saved snapshots from Inventory History. The other stuff, especially starting with "_" or PSxxx are Zynga crap, no idea where is comes from or where it is used for, but I am deleting that regularly and have not noticed a problem.

  3. Hmmm, started it right now but mine is looking different. No 'Delete Junk' button :/

    I can just switch between Start/Cookies/Storage and delete cookies one by one then. Too risky for me.
