We are working on it. Those who accessed the dig site while I was fussing around previously are the ones having issues. We are working on getting it fixed (long story short there's a new dig site, and those who visited when it was halvesies-in earlier today are now getting the issue now that it's fully in. We will fix it!) Apologies that you can't access it right now.

i'm having this same issue on chrome on my android and on firefox on desktop. it's very annoying.

@skinklegs This is the first report I've seen of it happening outside of a Chrome + Android setup.

Is the bug exactly the same as what you see on your phone? Can you share any other info about your desktop setup, such as OS and Firefox version? Thanks!

Very interesting observation @Clockworked!

Since all the pages mentioned share ad logic, that would make sense. I'd be interested if others have the same results when waiting for the ads to finish loading.

Thank you for the report @Sehti and thanks to everyone else who has provided extra information.

We don't know the cause yet, but there are several important factors that lead me to suspect a browser-specific issue.
  • The bug has been reported on sections of the website that are siloed off from each other - this is especially true of the Nesting Grounds, which isn't even on the same "WWW1" domain as the other pages. In some ways, it's a different website entirely.
  • Most (not all) of the menus mentioned are plain HTML select menus. They aren't dynamically loading data, changing selection options, or using fancy custom layouts.
  • There were no site updates in the days prior to bug being found.

We haven't been able to reproduce the bug on our end yet, but I suspect that's because we don't have the same non-emulated hardware in hand. Emulators aren't perfect and, as you might expect, this makes troubleshooting rather difficult.

Here are a few questions that could help:
  1. Does this happen on every dropdown on the site? If not, what select menus are okay?
  2. Does this happen on any other sites that use select menus? Preferably, we're looking for sites that have long menus.
  3. Has anyone using NON-Android hardware had this issue?
  4. Has anyone on Android seen this issue while using FireFox or any browser other than Chrome? Note: Chrome includes mini browsers opened by secondary apps.
  5. For those experiencing the problem, what happens if you pause a significant time after the initial menu click/touch? Does the menu eventually pop up?

Sorry that we have no answers yet, but I want to make sure we've covered every option before concluding that we have to wait for a Chrome fix.

I realize everyone is referencing the dragon, but at the end of the day for us as site administrators, a technical error lead to the entire community focusing on a single individual player account. That's not okay and why I'm going to go ahead and lock the thread now. Thank you for understanding!

Does someone ever block you randomly?
Oct 26, 2022, 07:31:51
Hello all. This thread is now locked, as posting about being blocked falls under our rules about call-outs:
Quote:
Call-outs

Threads designed to draw attention to a specific player, group of players, or staff are considered “call-out” threads.

Regardless of the original poster’s intent, threads inviting discussion about others can quickly devolve into harassment campaigns and even well-intentioned threads can lead to this behavior.

This also includes “vague” posts where a specific player is not named but the interaction with them is described for discussion with others, such as a trade or discovering the other player has blocked them.



The block feature is a feature that's working as intended. Players are not required to interact with a specific individual and, as noted in this thread, there can be a variety of reasons for a block. Thank you!

It was intended to be a leg, but it is a bit confusing to look at and some of the artists who did apparel for us interpreted it as an arm. It is my bad as art director that I did not catch it.

But now they are in use as pieces of arm apparel and it has been in the game for too long to change it; it might be a part of someone’s favorite outfit!

That said, the Schrodinger‘s limb is very funny.

Given that, can we expect it to be used as leg apparel from now on?

Only if I remember to check for it... >.>

Apparel made of filigree and fancy has made its way to dragonkind. New quality of life updates to site features.




Merry Dragons Go Round
Apparel made of filigree and fancy has made its way to dragonkind. Those who love the carnival and ornate decoration may enjoy the carousel sets! The following color variants now have a chance to stock in the treasure marketplace, and rarely from randomized chests and Pinkerton!


Golden Fancy




Lavender Fancy




Royal Fancy




Spring Fancy



The following apparel is available to dragons with an alchemy skill of level 24 and above. Head on over to Baldwin's Bubbling Brew to check out the new recipes!

Developer Updates
Two of Flight Rising's most recent site updates, the Grand Exchange and the Clan Profile Refactor have received a flurry of QoL improvements.

Grand Exchange
  • You can now filter offers by category and name.
  • If you do not have enough of an item to complete an offer, you can now hover over that item to find out exactly how many more you need.
  • Offers now indicate if you already own the item being sold. You can click this icon to jump to your Hoard or Vault.
  • The Hoard now flags items that are useful for Grand Exchange offers. This only applies to current offers.

Clan Profile Refactor
  • The number of recent forum posts displayed on the Clan Profile page has been increased from three (3) to five (5).
  • When viewing a friend's Clan Profile, the icon and tooltip for the friend button will indicate that you are already friends.
  • When viewing the Clan Profile of a player that has sent a pending friend request, you will see a small alert message indicating this below that player’s vista.
  • Unfriending a friend now has a confirmation step to avoid accidental unfriending.
  • The comment section is now more compact. Commenter names are displayed in a smaller font and the comment box is shorter by default.

Many of these are based on player feedback. This will continue to be true as we continue to refactor, refresh, and revamp sections of the site. So thank you for continuing to share your suggestions and ideas!

Koi being localized was intentional because of the unique shape/texture of veilspun wings. Not saying that it's good or bad, but that was the rational. It couldn't bleed onto the wings as seamlessly.

As a gem gene, you are correct that it stocks all the time, not some of the time!
That's some good points!

A new tertiary gene arrives! Plus new parallel genes and a familiar!





Tertiary Gene: Points
A new simple but versatile tertiary gene is now available for modern dragons. Points adds points of color to the extremities of your dragon, which fade into the primary and secondary beneath Points now has a chance to stock in the treasure marketplace.

Veilspun have received a new parallel gene, Koi. Koi (Veilspun) is now stocking in the gem marketplace.

This is intentional. The clan page contains many sections that are element-specific.

To avoid broken layouts and other bugs, these pages are now hidden until a clan element is chosen.

Nope. Roundsey is Roundsey, and just like how Theme Week may sometimes complement or be themed around a release, we don't use it to drop hints or teases. When we do drop a hint or a teaser, it will be clear that's what it is.

Sorry about the wait @aprilraven!

Please try adding "left" tags around the entire "want to buy" section.

Like this:
Code:
[left][b][size=4]WANT TO BUY:[/size=4][/b] [Skin=27848] [gamedb item=27848] [Skin=29125] [gamedb item=29125] [Skin=29140] [gamedb item=29140] [item=Metallurgists Forgetools][gamedb item=1223] [item=Boneyard Tatters][gamedb item=1792] [/left]

I suspect that this will fix the issue by wrangling the skin item popups into a defined container.
