Tiny Little Questions

I have a question about Teleport : what happens if I offer a hatchling in exchange for an egg while I'm egg locked? Does the egg get abandoned?

Same question for trades involving more eggs/hatchlings when one of the scrolls is at the limit.

 

If I'm remembering right, they won't be abandoned, but the trader won't be able to accept the offer.

In such a case, the teleport cannot be accepted - all your things stay on your scroll and the sender's things stay on their scroll. Nothing gets abandoned.

Have Nhiostrife wyverns always been stubborn to hatch? I remember them hatching at around mid 350-400 UVs and mine is at about 550 without hatching yet.

Hey, I have a question: what's the difference between views and clicks? If you view it, don't you have to click on it, so wouldn't they be the same thing?

If you load one of the fansites you will give views to all the eggs that show on the page when it loads. You will only give clicks to the eggs that you actually click on to bring up their view page. The terms can be a little confusing.

Can a few users try to send me a test PM? Apparently purplehaze was unable to send me a message, but my messages were just working the other day, and I can't find a reason why anybody would be unable to PM me. D: Would help to know if this is limited to one user or to all users. >.>

I seem to recall the other day a friend PM'd me and I was unable to receive the message, so it might not be just you. However, I had received a message perfectly a few days before.

I just sent you a test message, Sock, and it seems like that one went through. At least I didn't get a message that it didn't.:unsure:

So....... Are our pm buddy lists completely gone or are they going to come back? Have all the forum changes gone through and this is what it is or are some of the pm features going to return?

Maybe I'm missing something incredibly obvious, but I can't find a way to delete posts on the forum. Can someone confirm?

You can only use "Options" => "Hide"

 

Deleting is reserved for mods now.

I just got this in Firefox. Not something I've seen before. It went away when I clicked the tab, though.

 

Ah, got a screenshot.

I see that sometimes when the reply is loading. I'm on Chrome.

I'm not sure if there was a problem or issue with my previous answer? If there is, please let me know, and I can work on finding a better answer for you.

Ah, I thought from the phrasing that you were guessing. I assumed a not-fully-loaded page would have the usual "spinning" loading graphic instead of this one.

Also, I promised to no one in particular that I'd get a screenshot when I spotted the thing again. :)

Could someone explain to me how to format quotes on the new system? What I want to be able to do is have a quote that says whom the quote's from in the top line without actually having quoted a post, something you used to be able to do like this:

[quote=Person][/quote]

But that doesn't seem to work anymore, it just says "Quote" at the top without the name.

And related to this, is there a way to see the coding that goes into each post? Not the html, I know how to get that. I mean the bb code.

Nope. TJ confirmed here that, while the editor can accept BBC when someone inputs it manually, it really just generates HTML when formatting posts.

You already got an answer about the formatting, but in case you didn't know: if you only want to quote a small part of the post, you can simply highlight that section. A small button called "Quote this" will pop up and you can use that. Using "Quote this", or the Quote button in the top right corner of posts, will send the person you're quoting a notification.

Weeellllll, does that mean I can write my posts in html? OuO Now that could be a tedious prospect. Perhaps possibly fun. I see that I can't do simple <p></p> actions. 

 

Basically, the forums are now doing all the work for you.
