Adds a 'Poke all' button that returns all the pokes you have received with one click.
This extension is supported by a small ad that it puts on your pages. It is unobtrusive, but if you want to, you can disable it in the Options. Thank you for your support to everyone who leaves it on.
If you are having trouble, PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION for help!
When you enter the **Facebook Pokes** page (facebook.com/pokes, or click on "Pokes!" on left sidebar), this extension adds a Poke All button which pokes everyone back. Please note at this time, it will not work on the Homepage, it must be on the Pokes page.

A little more detail on the options you can set:
Suggested Pokes: This enables the suggestions below your received pokes to be poked. Default is disabled so you will only return current pokes unless it is enabled.
Poke Delay: delay in Seconds between each request to the facebook server. If disabled 0.25 [250ms] is used. The reasoning behind this is to not flood facebook with 10 poke request all at once.
Autopoke: This only automates clicking the Poke All button, once you go to the Pokes page. It does *not* automatically poke people when you load the Facebook homepage. If you want an auto-poker, pair this with an auto-reload extension.
Top button: Possibly being phased out in future updates, but it moves the location of the button.
Failsafe: Basically it is the definition of the word. Try this mode if facebook breaks things and I haven't put out an update.
[it scrapes the page for user IDs and tries poking each one]

Confirmed fix! Chrome's new security features were throwing me off, but I finally isolated the issue and the problem with only poking 1 person at a time has been resolved! Everything should work now. Internally, the code should be more stable now. [Switched to using facebook's own code for poking, and I simulate a click on each button instead of trying to mimic the correct ajax request]
quick fix [feedback??..does it work?]
Sorry about the last update, it didn't upload correctly. should be fixed now!
(another facebook fix)
ADDED Suggested Pokes! This enables the suggestions below your received pokes to be poked. Default is disabled so you will only return current pokes unless it is enabled.
Added a poke counter [in settings] shows how many pokes [Starting at 0, today] Poke All has done for you.
Switched from text to a big green check mark.
quick fix for facebook's ever changing code [works again].
Testing ads, so that I can continue to update this in the future. You can disable ads in the settings. This is the reason for the new permissions. Also tweaked options page a little bit.
add facebook like button to settings
Moved back to the /pokes page, because that was the easiest way to fix things. sorry for the inconvenience, but it will stay there until further notice.
Changed poking back to the homepage (pokes also no longer worked on last version since facebook updated again). Here's to hoping facebook will not move it back to the /pokes page exclusively ever again. It should work like it used to (for those users who've been with me since the beginning).
better icon to make this stand out from the other Facebook Poke extension knock offs ;)
minor updates in code, most notably: now shows "You poked [Friend]" instead of generic "Poked" message.
Added Poke Delay option, added loading wheel.
Add Top Button feature, remove old icons reducing download size.
Major update. Fixed the old code to work with Facebook's now permanent "Pokes" page. Fixed auto poke.
2.6: temporary[-ish.. ok, probably will be temporary for a while] fix. **important..** you *must* go to the Pokes page, [facebook.com/pokes or just click the pokes tab], then you also *MUST* reload the page [F5, or ctrl+R], otherwise the button doesn't show up. I haven't updated this earlier because Facebook keeps flip flopping, sometimes it shows the pokes e they used to, and sometimes not. Also, I haven't tested this with timeline since I don't have it, but it should work fine.
2.5.7: The old [new] poke interface came back! Re-fixed the code, Please Facebook, just leave it how it is now! Kthxbye :P
2.5.6: Facebook moved their pokes to its own tab [GRRRR FACEBOOK!!] so here is a temporary fix. Failsafe hard-coded, just load the facebook page and click the Pokes tab. [If you do not click it within 10 seconds of loading, press Ctrl+R on the pokes page (facebook.com/pokes) and the button will appear]. I'll try to get a better fix in the future
2.5.5: Fixed the bug causing the Poke All button to do absolutely nothing,
added "failsafe" mode. This resorts to using the previous method of gathering the ID of users of people who have poked you and looping through each one and poking them. Useful if Facebook changes something and you want a quick fix. I don't recommend using it unless it doesn't work without it. Note! The failsafe mode does not say "Poked", so after you use it, reload the page, then the pokes should be gone. Once again, whenever you change the settings, you must reload the page for the changes to reflect!
2.5.4: Extension works again. [Thanks facebook for changing your code, yet once again, for the gazillionth time!]
2.5.3: Added a toggle in the extension's popup that enables a Poke All button underneath your poke notifications, so you do not have to click on your pokes first if you don't want. Also reduced the download size of the extension [Now only 168KB compressed, 256KB installed], and minor performance improvements.
2.5.1: Fixed bug that caused only the last person on the list to have the "Poked" text.
2.5: Big update! I've rewritten lots of the code, and now it works much better with the new Poke system Facebook has. Thanks everyone for using this extension! I will upload new screenshots when I get around to it.
2.2.4: So facebook just majorly redid the poking system. I'm very busy, but have whipped up something that will work for now. Unfortunately, when you click on the button, it does not change the pokes links confirming you have poked them, you have to reload the page and they will be gone. I'm sorry about that, but there's nothing more I can do about it now, as I'm leaving for a long trip very soon.
220.127.116.11: New icon, zooming no longer makes the button break onto a new line, changed the link under extension
18.104.22.168: Removed automatic loading of like box (click on link under button for like box).
22.214.171.124: Added "Like" box.
2.2.2: Clicking the "Show all (#)" no longer makes the button disappear.
126.96.36.199: Tweaked style a little bit, no more text shadow.
2.1.7: Added Autopoke mode.
