k All and Accept feature and it worked on 5 remaining invites from this AM's daily "Accept Invites Routine" I established when Linkedin took away that feature a while back. Of course I found this out after already accepting the 100+ that were in my Inbox this am but I'm not complaining just making an observation:-) So I'll have to try it out with a larger selection than the 5 Invites that were remaining.
On a side note, if Linkedin implemented the "Lock out" to the Click All feature to slow down the pace of the Open Networkers I doubt it had a big affect. Instead of 3 mins it took me 15 mins daily to accept invites. And I actually read my invite requests rather than blanket accepting stuff and found a few good potential candidates which I promptly forwarded to my research staff. So it actually made HTC a few extras bucks. Now granted it was a mind numbing 15 mins of right click, Open New Tab, right click, Open New Tab, right click, Open New Tab, right click, Open New Tab, click tab and click accept, click tab and click accept, click tab and click accept, go back to main tab and make sure they were accepted, archive those that were and close all tabs. Do that 100 times a day or say it 100 times fast and you get the idea.
Jeff Weidner 9900+ first level connections
email@example.com back to accepting all invites on a daily basis:-)
Also I'm probably going to hit 10,000 first level connections by the end of the day. I'm wondering what I should do for such and auspicious occasion...Anyone got any ideas?…
ck accept I noticed something was awry. I clicked Accept, I clicked again, and again, an again. I logged off and logged back in and clicked again. But they weren't "Accepting". So after trying off and on over several days I figured Linkedin was having one of their typical programming problems and wrote customer service explaining the problem.
Below is the reply I received:
> Thank you for contacting LinkedIn Customer Support. You are no longer capable of mass accepting invites. You will need to go in and accept them one by one.
> We apologize for any inconvenience.
> Have a great day Jeff!
I have not received a reply as to why I am unable to mass accept but I think it's pretty save to assume that Linkedin is attempting to stop Open Networkers by making it massively inconvenient. (FYI I have over 9400 first level connections)
By my count that's at least 4 or 5 attempts at shutting down Open Networkers.
This wil obviously dramatically change how Open Networkers work on Linkedin. Be prepared to Accept each and every invite individually if you are "tagged" as an Open Networker by Linkedin.
Typically I would sign my post with my Linkedin email address but then I'd have to go in and Accept all the damn invites I'd get from people reading this post.
Ehh I'll put it in anyway just out of spite but don't expect me to Accept for several days, possibly weeks, maybe a month. Worst case 2 months.
