New Items: April User Submissions!!
Tch, y'all still showing up for this? Didn't think you'd need old Shady with all those fancy-shamncy new user stores. Get whatever you want on demand if you know who's made what... Hrmp. I get a good thing going and someone starts muscling me back out. This is just payback for the friend-fiction isn't it...?
Well don't think I'll be taking this lying down! I still got the best prices around! No premium markup! The only places you'll find selection items in the wild, unused and pure! YOU CAN'T SHUT ME DOWN, I GOT MOUTHS TO FEED! I'M TOO OLD TO HAVE TO MOVE TO A NEW REMNANT AGAIN!
Site Contest: April 2019
Ooh, I loved watching your Earth celebration of “April Fools Day” from afar! I was particularly fond of the new celebratory book that was titled Sparks Between Us, and I feel that I have learned so much about all of our new Earth friends by reading such richly detailed data inputs. How radiant!
Now we’re going to have some fun as well, aren’t we, Casey? Babagagada! That’s right! It’s time for everyone to participate in our April Site Contest, which has the theme of Inventions!
In case you need to refresh your memory banks, the competition will consist of a Gallery Contest and a Toy Design Contest. For the Gallery Contest, your directive is to post a screenshot of five items in your Gallery, and then tell us how you would combine them into a fun invention. Isn’t that exciting? For the Toy Design Contest, you can describe a fun toy that you would love to see. Feel free to include any visuals that you feel are helpful! The winning toy design will be made into a reality and sold in Piper’s Arcade, with your name credited as the designer.
The April Site Contest runs from today until April 28th at 12:00PM (noon) CHT. Isn’t it fascinating how the time there on Hope manages to correspond so exactly with our station’s mainframe clock? I wonder what implications that has…
Following standard procedures, winners will be chosen based on the number of Cheers that their entry receives. Also, be sure to read the Rules of each category so that you understand all of your protocols!
New Premium Items: Sea Witch Apparel!
Aw heck, Miranda was right! Sortin’ all these Coral Reef legends into stories so that we can copy them down into our new books… It’s a lot o’ work. Yer right, X, I should get up and stretch me legs. Maybe a walk down by the cove will help me sort out all these tales o’ the Sea Witch…Read More »
Code Update: 4/2/19
Hello again, everyone! I am so excited to bring you today's code update: Maxed Personality Icons and User Shops!
The Maxed Personality Icons are a small update to the Kith Profile Page, which will display a colorful heart icon next to their Personality if it has reached the maximum of 100 and become "locked in" to that Personality type.
The BIG, exciting update is our shiny new User Shops! You each now have your own User Shop that's linked on your User Profile, which you can customize in your Settings. You can use emoji and some limited HTML for links and images in the description area here - I'm excited to see what "storefronts" you all come up with!
Each store has three tabs: Custom Clothing, Custom Kith, and Marketplace Lots.
The Custom Clothing and Custom Kith tabs will allow our amazing custom artists to sell and showcase their creations at any time, instead of having to wait for a restock in Backstage Broker. The items are listed here at a 25% markup, the same commission rate that the artist gets from each sale, both as a precaution against buying your own items to earn a commission, and as a pay-for-convenience feature like that of the "Buy an Item" Kith Activity. Please note that we did have to add an automatic forced rounding to these numbers in order to get the shops to work correctly, so numbers that divide into a decimal will round down to the closest whole number. For example, an item that costs 23 Gems will show up for sale in your User Shop for 27 Gems and will earn you a commission of 5 Gems with each sale, even though 23*0.25=5.75.
The Marketplace Lots allows users to browse your specific lots for sale. Both tabs have a simplified Search feature that allow you to search for a specific item/lot name within the User Shop.
Hopefully this is a helpful step forward for all of our creative salespeople! We're still considering other ways to "advertise" this feature around the site, like adding a link to the dropdown on the Users Online page, so please let us know if you have any ideas in the Suggestions Forum! As usual, if you run into any technical issues with this new update, please report it in the Technical Support Forum.
Thank you all again for helping make Tattered Weave the best it can be!
