    Hm. So I'm at work and wondering how much of a hubbub would be raised if I tinkered with my lists on the database. I mean, if someone walked by... I could try to explain, but I think it'd be wasted effort to defend myself.

    So I just realized that a change I made yesterday means that you can't load the site's CSS file unless you're logged in. Oops.

    When is Mheso usually on? I have a lot of the stuff being requested!

    Mheso is on right now. :( And I had the CSS issue happen last night but I figured it was growing pains. I keep missing Moira as well and it makes me sad. This game needs mail like whoa.

    I keep trying to convince Gathol to log in while I'm at work and pick up orders for me. Free stack of grilled trout to anyone willing to mule fish shipments for White Mage and Moira!

    I'm usually online with Exzeph, Gally, Rathiain, Jodaddy, April, and Monza. But they might also be online all the time. And likely have full inventories.

    I have mentioned a few times in LS chat and on a forum post that i have an alt i can use for delivery purposes but i will mention it again.

    I have an alt char i made for the inevitable day i get sick of my current chars face. Im not currently using it at all and it has full anima and bag/retainer space. I would have no problems at all holding things for people and then delivering them. I need to run it to Gridania and i can pickup/deliver at all three main cities.

    I can also keep my alts inv updated on BHS if people just need a place to store some community property. Feel free to make use of this!

    Also feel free to store millions of gil and or wind shards on my alt...... you can trussssttt meeeee.

    I set up a bunch of "ongoing requests" not explicitly based on what *I* need as a player, but what popular high level Alchemy things I'm commonly requested to make on an ongoing basis (which is why that app is awesome). Status effect potions, dyes, all that kind of stuff (six demon bag). Stuff that's explicitly for me has a quantity. :P

    As far as *when* I'm on? The wetpaint link in my sig has a broad overview of my play schedule, but since I'm in crunch right now at work it's fluctuating wildly. Generally speaking, I am on super late at night (2~4a PDT) or in the early afternoon (11a~3p PDT). This week it'll probably be more like 10a~12p and 12a~2a though.

    If people keep normal people hours and want to see me, usually the best bet is to talk to Jodaddy, Exzeph or Sabriel and ask them to either give stuff to me or identify who else can give stuff to me, because I tend to see them when I'm around.

    I normally see Ex on, so I'll talk to him about passing stuff on to you. I have a metric crapton of jellyfish stuff from WANG island and Cassio. Thanks for the info.

    And yes, metric crapton is a unit of measurement.

    If anyone needs dyed cotton cloth or canvas let me know how many you need and what colors you want. Cotton is failing more than I think it should, but it's not too bad. Canvas fails a lot, but I can do it. Currently working on pink canvas for Sab (she needs 9, I have 5 made right now).

    If I could get some weaver's marks this would be so much easier! Probably not, but that's what I'm going with until I get a book.

    Go ahead and back it in, I'm at like 65/80. If that's not enough, I can try to do some synths while you're giving me stuff.

    However, naturally this is going to be contingent on us finding each other again!

    HBS Updates:
    • Requests:: Details and Provision:: Details pages now properly manages user permissions. (That is, only owner can delete, provider can mark ready, etc.) This allows links to these pages to be shared without worry.
    • Added Details link to all requests and provisions tables, now since the security issues have been worked out.
    • Fixed bug with Requests::Mine where the Ready column would always show "No".
    • Added creation timestamp to requests, viewable in details view. Right now these are in UTC. I will be looking into converting them into local time using javascript. (All requests created before this were marked with the time I implemented this in the database.)

    I've been trying to add a request for Fang Arrows, but I keep getting a generic runtime error. I can't believe all the arrows after that take wing glue (I can beleive it). :(
    Server Error in '/' Application.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Runtime Error 
    Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine. 
    
    Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".
    
    
    <!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->
    
    <configuration>
        <system.web>
            <customErrors mode="Off"/>
        </system.web>
    </configuration>
     
    
    Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.
    
    
    <!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

    I must have screwed something up... I have confirmed errors for adding both requests and provisions. I am working on it right now.

    Weird part is... I tested making a request and I swear it worked fine before. *Grumble*

    EDIT: Found the issue. Not surprisingly, the issue was such that it would work fine as long as the item was already in the database, and it would work once when the item wasn't. Having trouble fixing it though...

    EDIT EDIT: OK finally fixed. I had to learn a new trick for this one. Fun! Sorry for the trouble everyone.

    I never crafted in ffxi... and I'm already to give up in ffxiv... and I've only been trying for like an hour.

    I went to didwai to try to start goldsmithing... he said he gave me the ingredients for "baderon's new bandanas" but every recipe I find online has stuff like marbled eye's in the recipe... but he didn't give me any of those :( is there a place in the game to find the recipe I'm supposed to use???

    When synthing look for the button "Requested Items" that will bring you to the crafting quest list from here you pick the quest and then start the synth. You don't actually need to have the items.

    HBS is great. I wish we could do the LS login message thing that other games have to direct people there. Someone should make a post on our LS forum about it. I'd do it myself but I don't have my security token with me (I'll do it if no one has by the time I get home).

    EDIT- As far as improvements, the only thing I can think of is that "keep me logged in" doesn't persist for me beyond the browser session. Not a big deal, obviously.

    Could it be your browser is set to clear cookies? The website uses two cookies: One for your session, and one for your authentication. The session one only lasts until the browser is closed, but the authorization one should last 48 hours. I just did this using both Chrome and Firefox and didn't see any issues.

    If you want, you can check cookies both before and after you close the browser, and see what's there. You'll see ASP.NET_SessionId, which is the session and should go away when the browser is closed. And you'll see .ASPXAUTH, which should last 48 hours from login regardless of the browser closing.

    EDIT: In regards to login, I am hoping to add a password change dialog soon.

    HBS Update: Users can now change their password under the new Account menu.

    HBS Survey: Does anyone use multiple characters? I have some changes planned to set a default character, but I want to know how common this is in order to prioritize it properly.
