The Enquirer is far from an ideal venue for reporting bugs, but we need someplace to capture what we notice. This thread is only meant to be an early-days place-holder until CMJ can set up something better, say in GitHub.

Try to make it one message per bug -- and one bug per message.

If someone else has already reported something, don't post just to say "Me too."



NOTE ADDED: Despite the big notice at the top of the page, petitions do work on the beta server. (Sort of work. They'll go away in a reset.) Don't report bugs that way. Report them here. CMJ is not going to be reading the beta petitions, but I will. Only use a petition to ask for badnav rescue.

CMJ EDIT: This post is now locked, please see this thread for a fresh version.

Description:
Having built two extension rooms and two doors.

In the Undecorated Rooms off my Front Room, this appears below the chat area:

Built new room plus door.

Go through door to new room, get this in the room.

PHP Warning: "Invalid argument supplied for foreach()"

You are standing in a small, plain, undecorated room.

The bit that is in sub quotes above is on it's own white backgroup. The rest is on the normal brown background.

Note the "You are standing in a small, plain, undecorated room." in the middle, which presumably is meant to be there.
(So the second half of this is just a repeat of Budd's report. The first half is new though.)

Probably not really related to places in particular, but when I try to move, I'm getting:

You don't have enough Travel Points left to move North. Your Travel Points will be replenished on the next New Day.
You don't have enough Travel Points left to move East. Your Travel Points will be replenished on the next New Day.
You don't have enough Travel Points left to move South. Your Travel Points will be replenished on the next New Day.
You don't have enough Travel Points left to move West. Your Travel Points will be replenished on the next New Day.
You don't have enough Travel Points left to move NorthEast. Your Travel Points will be replenished on the next New Day.
You don't have enough Travel Points left to move NorthWest. Your Travel Points will be replenished on the next New Day.
You don't have enough Travel Points left to move SouthEast. Your Travel Points will be replenished on the next New Day.
You don't have enough Travel Points left to move SouthWest. Your Travel Points will be replenished on the next New Day

This seems wrong in multiple ways - it might be related to me being overburderned, but it still seems wrong.

Edit:
Ah, a bit more testing confirms that it lists the place I can't move to for any direction with a movement cost above a certain amount (modified by my pack, I assume)

Navigation Bug

Description:
After taking certain actions, I seem to lose the ability to go back to continue working, and need to leave to the island map and re-enter.
Specifically, this occurred after I added rock to a new room. Options were reduced to "show inventory" and "back to map".

Link where noticed: http://improbableisland.com/placesbeta/runmodule.php?module=places&op=build&placeid=25&material=stone&jobid=198&iterations=5

If I then chose "Show inventory", I only have "return to map" as an option.

Type:
Simultaneous actions

Description:
When complete a room at the same time as another player, it seems the room was completed and both our materials were used up. I was expecting a message about being too slow or something here. Not a huge deal, but worth noting I think.

Type:
Invalid Argument

Description:
When attempting to decorate a page (but with no page available to be decorated), I get:
On Improbable Island, a dab of paint here and there can make the difference between a shack and a mansion.

Decorating a page will allow you to change the text shown when the player access this page. The longer the description, the more you'll have to decorate - but like with building, your friends can help you out. You can also change the name of the page, at a maximum of 55 characters. Changing the name of a page will usually only take a single Decorating action - after all, you can very easily call a grandfather clock a desk. It's just that everyone will point and laugh at you.

Here's all your Pages - click on one to change its name or description.

Not sure if it's a bug, but it would definitely be appreciated if building and scavenging actions had their costs listed.

Type: Commentary Deletion and Restoration

Description: Trying to click Del or UNDel does not delete or add the comment. Mass Delete works normally, albeit with now irretrievable comments.

This occurs whether you're trying to remove a comment from your room or put it back. GREM works normally.

This occurs on either Story or Banter.

PHP Formatted Code
http://www.improbableisland.com/placesbeta/placesbetarunmodule.php?module=places&op=room&roomid=61&placeid=31&comscroll=0&removecomment=185


Replace 'remove' in the above URL with 'restore' for putting back something.

Either way, the page one ends up at reads as such:

Not Found

The requested URL /placesbeta/placesbetarunmodule.php was not found on this server.

Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at www.improbableisland.com Port 80
