Thanks @gentleTendencies! I'm still attempting to recreate this on my end. I'm also hopeful that we may see additional reports exactly like this that'll help identify what's different between my setup and yours.

While I try to get it to break for my computer, please try switching off any settings you might have that are not "default" - like zoom or plugins. If switching something off fixes it, please report back and we'll see if we can work around it.

If you're comfortable with Developer Console, I can walk you through some steps to review what's putting the footer there, but I hope we can get by without it.

@windowsXP - It looks like you currently have sticky footer turned on in settings, so far so good! Was that the setting you wanted?

If not, turn sticky footer off under hoard settings and let us know if the footer looks correct in that scenario too. Thanks!

Thanks for the report @gentleTendencies!

That's definitely not how it's supposed to look. Please reply with details about what browser and computer operating system you're using. If you're on a tablet or phone, please include that detail too.

There's a chance clearing your cache will solve this, so please give that a try as well. Thanks!

We'll look into this. In the meantime, please try to clear your cache - just in case that'll fix it.

Can you provide info on what system and browser you're using? I'll be slightly disappointed if it's not Windows XP.

Updates to the recent Hoard/Vault revamp are now live. A full list of changes is available here.
Update: Hoard/Vault Revamp
Nov 05, 2020, 10:00:18
Two weeks ago, we launched a major Hoard/Vault revamp. This update included many new features to make managing your doodads and whatzits easier, but there's always room to make things even better!

We've been following your feedback—thank you!—and we're happy to announce several additional updates and fixes that are now live:

Feature Updates
  1. You can now filter items by unlocked status! Just click the lock filter button to toggle between "no filter", "filter only locked", "filter only unlocked".
  2. The hoard sale and convert food screens now include an option to "Deselect Invalid Items" all items that can't be converted or sold all at once!
  3. You can now disable hoard footer from "sticking" to the bottom of your screen. This option is located under Hoard Settings.
  4. The loading animation when filtering or navigating the hoard is now more subtle.
  5. Clicking an item use indicator (Swipp, Baldwin, Fiona, etc.) will now open a new tab, so you won't lose your spot in the hoard.
  6. The tutorial layout has been updated to make the final accept button easier to find.
  7. The visual indicator for invalid items when converting or selling multiple stacks is now clearer.

Bug Fixes
  1. Dragons that already have a Scroll of Eternal Youth applied are now excluded from available options when applying a new Scroll of Eternal Youth.
  2. Applying a new vista to an account no longer makes it the active vista.
  3. Removed a bug that allowed multiple Item Interaction Menus to be open simultaneously.

Additional Notes
Currently item uses indicators do not flag seasonal (temporary) uses when they are not active. This update does not change that, but we are evaluating how that could be done.

As always, if you have more feedback or suggestions on the Hoard and Vault—or any other area of the site and game—please continue to post them in our Suggestions forum for the team to review!

could that add to the Network activity?
Absolutely. Every singe image, be it an ad loading in or a site logo, should create a record. Some sites load everything at first and then go silent. Other sites make frequent updates as you look at them. Flight Rising is in the middle of those extremes.

When you open up Developer Console, it SHOULD stay open as you go from site-to-site. Can you open in on that site then navigate to Flight Rising for the tests I mentioned above? I'm particularly interested in our front page and that credits page I linked (the pages are very different in ways that may help)

I'm also still interested in the other experiments mentioned, including turning off McAfee entirely.

@AnpuRa
  1. It's great that it has worked solidly for you in the past, but I wouldn't say that removes it from being a potential cause. All cars run perfectly until they stop. To eliminate the possibility, can you turn McAfee off entirely, then run a new test? Keep in mind that, with software like this, you need to be very certain it's 100% off.
  2. Okay, we'll assume that it's off since usually there'd be an icon in the top-right corner of your window indicating it's in Privacy Mode.
  3. Excellent! We can eliminate that option.
  4. That's great! But I'm not clear I understand everything with your response. You mentioned that this is how it looked "from a minute of bouncing around". Does that mean that you were getting nothing in that tab until after a few minutes, or was data coming in the entire time and you just happened to stop after a few minutes to take the screenshot. I'd be interested in knowing what your network tab does just by opening one page. Also, what does it look like when you open the main page for Flight Rising? And how about this super simple page?
  5. To undock Developer Console, click the "..." button in the top-right corner of Developer Console and select "Separate Window" from the menu.

Eliminating possible causes and providing new details is always helpful - especially when screenshots are involved - "A picture is worth a 1,000 words."

Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Kaepora
Thanks for the screenshots @AnpuRa! Several possibilities come to mind:
  1. As already mentioned, this could be caused by McAfee. I know earlier I had asked if any plugins were running, but this is sort of a special case, since it's not really a normal plugin. I do think it's a very likely cause.
  2. If you are browsing in privacy mode, please try again with that turned off.
  3. Do you use any secondary languages in Firefox? Apparently there's a known issue where this affects this tool (although I'm not personally familiar with Firefox "language packs)
  4. Is the network tab blank for other sites too? Please go to another site like Tumblr or Google and check if anything pops up either in the Console or Network tabs. That will let us know FOR SURE, that it's not a scrap of bad code causing it.
  5. The Developer Console supports moving where it's "docked" or positioned. There's a small possibility that un-docking it will fix a visual-related bug. To try this, press the "..." button near the top-right of the Developer Console and select "Separate Window" this should undock the tool and you may see new stuff pop up when you refresh the Hoard page.

@AnpuRa - Screenshots will be helpful, but there's something else we can try that should be easier.

Please try logging out of your account and then logging back in. This should refresh your session and may even help with the trouble you were having with Dragon Profiles.

Please, post here once that's done (regardless of if it fixed anything or not).

@gemajgall Good question!

The old hoard displayed chest currency as large icons next to the items. The new hoard displays chest currency above the items - to make that distinction clearer.

So old chests may have looked like they had more items, but it's actually the same.

Hi folks, our lock message for the announcement thread addresses some of the concerns that have come up since the festival started. I'll quote paste it below for clarity.

Please keep in mind that this is a lock message first. We are still reading and discussing your feedback regarding the Riot of Rot 2020 and plague.

Update: We've made the decision to not unlock this thread and we wanted to let you know why.

First, thank you for your feedback and sharing your feelings with us regarding this year's Riot of Rot. We understand that some of you are not very happy about the apparel item, and it's valid for you to both have and express those feelings. We also recognize that there are a lot of different voices in our community about what constitutes plague's theme, and those might not always align with the small group of us creating content for it. While the team is still actively discussing your feedback for the future, we don't have any plans to make alterations to an item already in wide circulation.

Second, and related to the above, we apologize for allowing the thread to run unchecked overnight. This happened due to an internal misunderstanding and miscommunication. It was not deliberate but we understand how this gives the appearance of not caring and that the end result was a thread no one could walk away feeling good about.

Finally, on why the thread will remain locked:

It ultimately came down to the discussion around the skin contest. We believe it's one thing to disagree with the development team's choices, but that it's something else entirely to call negative attention to the winning skins or accents—all of which are created by your fellow players—because you don't personally like them.

This has happened several times over the life of Flight Rising and, honestly, it's not okay. It bears repeating—the winning artists for any given festival are your fellow players who participated in a site event. When the development team are the judges of said event, it is not appropriate to make very public statements about how the winning players didn't deserve it or that there were much better options, etc.

If there was an entry you'd hoped would win, that's fine! Have that discussion. Elevate and celebrate those entries! But it's not okay to directly and negatively contrast it with a winning skin or accent. Yes, players are competing with one another to win, but we all need to be mindful that this is still a monthly celebration and not bitter rivalry.

If the winning skins or accents just aren't your thing, that's also fine to discuss, if you do it respectfully. Please be careful about using negative adjectives and editorial phrasing to express it. If what you're about to post feels like something you wouldn't appreciate waking up to on the opening day of a party where you're being celebrated, we ask you not to post it at all.

This is really important: When you call out a winning submission in order to tear it down because you don't like it, you're also calling another player out for something that is completely outside of their control once they've submitted their skin or accent. When you call out a submission that didn't win and compare it to a winning submission, you're calling out not one but two players in an adversarial way. That's not cool, and both situations are a form of harassment. Even if that's not your intent—and we realize many of you don't intend or want to harass them—the result is the same. Don't do it.

We've removed some comments under forum moderation that went too far in that direction and those players have been notified. If any other comments are removed, those players will be notified as well.

@AnpuRa

That's okay, I thought I'd give it a shot, since testing on a second device would let us know if it's just the computer or if it's the network (Note that by "network" I mean anything to do with your connection between your computer and our site - not necessarily a home network).

So the Console itself does come up, but we're missing the actual data. You'll see in the example I sent earlier that the Network tab also includes a few rows of settings/filters/controls. Do those show up? We're most interested in where it says "All | HTML | CSS | JS ..." - It's important that if you see that, "All" is the selected option. This should be set by default, but it's possible it was changed at some point.

I can tell you that I'm fairly confident this is computer-specific. But I'd like to do what I can to get around that so you can keep using the hoard.
