View Full Version : Elf Island News from the developers

11-05-2008, 01:25 PM
Hey guys, I got an e-mail I would like to share with you. Here is some news they wanted to bring forth to the community.

We are constantly testing and prioritizing. Below are the top issues that we are working on resolving – top priority! Thanks for sharing this with the forums and fan sites. We feel it is important to let everyone know, we are working diligently to resolve these issues and are grateful to have everyone’s patience. We are listening and appreciate the feedback!

1. Add a chat log, so that players can read the chat in the room without seeing the bubbles overlap (or find a way to keep bubbles from overlapping)

2. Work on the Field Guide:
2a. Make sure the Field Guide does not crash
2b. Ensure pages are easy to open and turn
2c. Quick user reference in the contents section

3. Make the mini-game widget easy to find, so exiting a game is intuitive

4. Fix the problem with items disappearing in the homes

5. Make avatars invisible when they enter a mini-game or a store

6. Fix layering issues with goods and the “edit home” button, so that an elf cannot walk through them

7. Alphabetize the friends list

8. Label map as “Map”

9. Chat/UI Lag

the map was labelled map today

Also something was changed not on that list, we could see the names of people when they typed. That made things much easier but really looking forward to the chat log

Noticed besides the new front page today the friends list is alphabetized.

Online friends show first in alphabetical order followed by offline friends.

I like being able to "mouseover" avatars to see the titles.

Dear God. I made 1 with my dachshunds face.
It is a spit-take moment to say the least.

ROFL. Thanks for sharing again this Holiday Season.
