....bloody typos.

get cut off. CUT.


I make the many models of a mutant individual. To make them I use vegetables, animals, and minerals. From robot bugs to zombie bears to many singing barnacles.

I love the fixes. Lurve them. Yes, I occasionally run on autopilot and step past an outpost or hit V while I'm in the bank, but it makes sense, and I feel so much safer not always hitting that damn hotkey for smoking. THANK YOU!

The one small change I'd like to see: make the FAQ link point to the Rookie Advisory, and archive the current one - since it's mostly for season one things and doesn't really answer most of the things people ask.



The entire FAQ needs an overhaul, in my opinion.
It's funny, but a lot of that stuff is irrelevant on this season. It's mostly just a copypasta from LOTGD.

I don't seem to be able to give Mountjoy and Battenburg name change documentation? I know it's me being daft, but...

I know, but the search function will not locate the two NPC alts above.

EDIT: If there was one small thing I'd change on the Island; it'd be that I could gift someone something whilst they were sleeping in a house; which apparently you can't.

hrmm. i'm having the same problem with Bruce and Lillith, except they're both wide-awake in Improbable Central.

Now, regarding one small thing, eh? Well... now that chimental's mentioned the specials cutting off, that leaves me with ... hrmm ... (browses wish-list) contestant list showing who's in what room of their dwelling? customisable furniture-names? aaargh, which to choooooose? probably the contestant list thing, since it would make role-play so much easier for those of us who have a clan-leader with a compulsive building disorder. (i do secretly long for both, though. and linked rooms but i'm sure that's a big thing)

I always found it a bit odd that you can't Travel onto the world from a jungle. You can go directly INTO a jungle on the outpost square, but you can never leave the jungle back into the world without going into the Outpost first. It's not a big issue like the Cigarette hotkey was, because the only time I ever even consider this fact is when I go into an outpost's jungle solely for a quest monster, find and kill it, and then want to leave the jungle.

But still. Conceptually odd.



Well, it would give you a way to infinitessimaly avoid your Dojo Masters, which would be A Bad Thing.

Something truely bссссссссd... oh, sorry..

I'm not sure if I see why you would want to, though, if you could never enter a town anyway. If someone wants to try getting 100k req for a Wedding Ring, or something, without ever being able to bank it, I'd say more power to 'em.

There are much better ways of getting 100k req though. Besides, you could avoid your masters by Failboating anyway.


Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? All you get is one trick: rational thinking. But when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, the sky's the limit.

Thank you for the hotkeys change!

If I could change one thing about the island...it would be for me to have more time on the island. Or have the island become real and get sent there.

Perhaps have some kind of 'Sent' folder for distractions? It works so similarly to e-mail that I always find it strange I can't track the ones I sent. It's no biggie, not even a minor irritation, it would just be damn useful, f'r me, at least. Maybe have it as an option, not a default? A 'Save in sent folder' check box, whenever you send a message, like Yahoo Mail used to have, ages and ages ago?
Of course, I can't tell if that's complicated to code, or put strain on the servers, and stuff like that, I'm unfortunately inept in that area (perhaps in others, too, but let's not derail this thread now.. :-P). If it is, well, just ignore what I just said (including the ineptitude part, yes?)

If I could change one small thing...

It'd be to bypass the Raven Inn while travelling on the map without the extra screen acknowledging that you're bypassing the Raven Inn. You can do so in The Jungle, but not out and about. I imagine it'd save a fair number of page loads every day... and to be honest it's just a little thing that's caught my attention and rubbed a nerve funny.

Other than that; holy cow thank you all for the great suggestions and fixes and everything. This is my new very favorite thread of all time!

I'd just move the entire damn thing (or something similar) to the Common Ground and out of the jungles.

In LotGD (been checking it out because I love the Island and wanted to see where it came from), you can choose to go to The Raven Inn at will or leave it be if you have a mount. It shows up in the Forest as "Take your >Mount< to the Raven Inn."
