We had hoped we’d have started limited “en masse” testing of the world by now, but we’ve had a couple of last-minute issues which we’d like to get resolved. Remember, we have a limited support staff, so what seems like minor issues to many of you, or would have been minor in the “old days” would be much more problematic today. So, if we know about things, we’re going to fix them.
The issues are:
- A mysterious “Black Bar” in the client. We suspect this is the result of some Flash silliness, as so many things are.
- Chat Windows can sometimes “Disappear” off screen. It looks like they’re not opening, but they’re in reality “off screen” and need their positions re-adjusted. We handle this well for Organizer, but not for chat Windows
- Some people’s inventories aren’t loading. This is a function of some malfunction, not of load (inventories that do load load very quickly, as many GP3Ds will attest) (this is due to changes we’ve made, not the fact that there isn’t anyone on the service). We want to fix this before we have several thousand people reporting it.
I wanted to point out that the inventory issues aren’t due to us “moving to the Cloud”. We’re discovering, or re-discovering, issues in the code, and taking this opportunity to fix them.
I know everyone is anxious for more people to be let in. We are too!
I have SamSyn looking into Zephyr to see if it’s become more laggy now that there’s…stuff there.
Speaking of Zephyr, I think the Community should start a poll or something on What To Do About Zephyr. Part of me (and this is just me) thinks we should make the whole of the area “sacred” now and let people drop PAZs on the outskirts. I know that lots of people have had claim to those areas in the old There, but given a “New Slate”, we might want to consider changing that. As I said, you all should discuss it.
That’s all for now.
P.S. Another film shot from China.
