People Missing at Parties bug

...still persists, not that it bothers me much ;) --Gabor Kiss 10:34, 16 March 2007 (GMT)

Nothing to do with the logging in problems. The missing-people issue has been improved, but not eliminated. Put this on the Bugs page as a reminder. Darksatanic 10:52, 16 March 2007 (GMT)

The 54 Missing

One of those appears to be my second character Achamian. If he is lost for al time then so be it, he was only about a week old anyhow. I assume the creation of Achamian II (or any other new character) is free of problems as the password can be written to the newly refurbished database? Theendisnigh 09:34, 7 March 2007 (GMT)

I've lost my second character snrnp as well, but he was old. Really old. Userlogin tells me that no such character exists, though it does refer to him as "Snrnp," when I'm pretty sure that his name was all lowercase. I don't know if that matters much? To be fair, I haven't really been playing lately, though I have been keeping the accounts active (read massive amounts of sand). Is he really gone, or did I just epic forget his password? Rangy 10:59, 7 March 2007 (GMT)

OK, I've worked out a procedure for sorting this: mail me <hugo@carfax.org.uk> with your username, your password, and an IP address that you've connected to the game from recently, and I'll reset your password for you. Darksatanic 11:37, 7 March 2007 (GMT)
Oops, sorry about that. Turns out I just forgot my password--so hard. So nothing for me, at any rate. Rangy 12:01, 9 March 2007 (GMT)

Pet Feeding

it seems that whilst not dying of starvation, our pets have gone negatively hungry over the past week, which means you have to feed them lots to get them above starving again. if you've done the harvey farm quest and you can see your pets hunger, this should be simple to work out. if not, bear in mind that your pet loses 1% every hour, and you probably havent fed them for about 7x24 hours, which means they are about 170 % less full than they were before you got logged out. so for goldfish that'll take about 13 flakes. to aid us, the flake shakers have now got a nifty new 'shake hard' function where you get 5 flakes for 4ap, and it also doesn't cost any ap to feed. this probably won't stay like this for long, so feed your pets now! Spugmeistress 17:49, 6 March 2007 (GMT)

my feed button went back up to 1ap when my goldfish was full, but wasn't it greyed out and 0ap when they were full before? Spugmeistress 17:53, 6 March 2007 (GMT)

Emergency Plans

Look at current events if you want a summon to holiday island where AP can go over max, or want to give something back to the community by donating/ lending me summon stones for the good cause Eusebia 23:40, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

We've had a problem with the database which has resulted in losing the passwords for all currently
-active users. This was due to a bug in some code attempting to fix the people-vanishing-at-parties
bug.

Well, that's certainly one way to cut back on the number of people at parties :-) -- Thog 22:09, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

All pet hunger effects have been suspended until we sort out the rest of the problems. Your pet won't 
starve.
Aww bless your cottons :) I love how we are so attached to our virtual goldfish and even more that the admins care Spugmeistress 22:18, 27 February 2007 (GMT)
Elseware needs hugs right now. I think I just need another beer right now. Darksatanic 22:29, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

So our pets will be fine, but what about our adopted baby animals from Harvey? I am assuming they will pass away?

Right at the moment, yes. I'll work out a way of dealing with this when I get a moment in an hour or so. If you know you're going to lose your baby as a result of this, then please let me know below. Darksatanic 20:17, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

Random question... is automatic limboing still in place? If so... am glad I hadn't properly started my Morpheus hunt yet... Stoo 22:57, 2 March 2007 (GMT)

Yes, it is. Note, however, that one of the exits from Limbo is "back to where you were". Darksatanic 11:50, 3 March 2007 (GMT)

Trouble Logging In

is anybody else having problems? when i tried to log in this morning my password wouldn't work. i need to feed my fish! and then let it attack things. Tulk

Yup, happens to me with opera (it says "Incorrect, try again!"). I tried with ie and got the same response, although I may have gotten the password wrong (opera has it saved) -Windowmere

Same problem here, doesn't look like it's a browser thing. Flt 16:14, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

Same problem here --Bubba_the_Shy 16:17, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

Ditto on all counts PlanetNiles 17:48, 27 February 2007 (GMT)


"Something has gone horribly wrong (server error)! Either it's a bug in the code, or we are currently experiencing 'King fiddling time. Please remain seated with your seatbelts fastened for the time being, and post a bug report to the wiki if the problem recurs."

Jhvh1 16:24, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

The GLs and 'King are aware of the problem and looking into it.. and it looks like a biggun. MrFoo 17:54, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

For those worried for their pets, don't worry! Pet temporarily don't hunger while this is being sorted. Kaos Dragon 18:21, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

We've lost the passwords from the database. We've managed to get back about half of the active players' passwords (from an old backup). The remainder may take some time -- we don't have an ETA yet. More news when we have it. Please move the discussion to Talk:Logging in problems. Darksatanic 18:34, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

Is there a more recent update somewhere? Seems like all of my friends have access back and I am getting jealous! ;) Rhapsodie 12:19, 2 March 2007 (GMT)

We're hoping to get hold of the backup files from the database today. We'll let you know as soon as we know anything more. Darksatanic 12:28, 2 March 2007 (GMT)

Babies at risk register

Haldar has the cutest little firefox who won't get his 22:00-23:00 (GMT) feeding. I hear that mean Mr. Harvey has one heck of a temper for those who don't take good care of his animals

Hmm. Looks like that one's already triggered. How many feeds did you have left? Darksatanic 22:43, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

I had only fed him one time. No big deal. If I can't log in for a couple days, spending that time in Harvey's prison won't be so bad. :-)

I think I had 2 feedings left on my cute baby ninja. Thanks for saving me from the wrath of Harvey! - Heyus2 16:14, 28 February 2007 (GMT)
