Data Collection: Logging in from the Front Page

Hello again! We’re on a bug hunt with some fairly old issues and we’re trying to smash them with data and science. In addition to our previous post, we are also requesting information from players who are experiencing the following:

Logging in from the front page (http://flightrising.com) is not functioning, is taking a very long time, or taking multiple attempts.

If you are currently experiencing this issue, we would love to hear from you. Please join us in this thread and fill out the questionnaire listed in the top post in your reply:

http://flightrising.com/main.php?board=bug&id=1142847&p=mb

Sorry for all the spam tonight - we’re trying to really track these ones down and fix ‘em up.

Data Collection: Buttons Losing Functionality

Hey everyone -

We are trying to diagnose an issue that happens sporadically for some users and would like your help in collecting information.

The heart of the issue is that some site buttons become completely unresponsive to input, seemingly randomly. Our hope is to find out why this is happening and that it isn’t random, but something we can narrow down with enough data and provide a fix for.

The buttons in question we’re looking to get information about are:

  • Feed Dragons
  • Arrange Dragons
  • Convert Food
  • Sell (From Hoard)
  • EquipSkins
  • Equip Apparel
  • Breed
  • Change Familiars
  • Auction Dragon
  • Exalt Dragon
  • Post New Forum Thread

If this has ever happened to you or is currently happening to you, and you can remember anything significant about when they stopped functioning for you, and what you may have been doing at the time, please contribute to this thread:

http://flightrising.com/main.php?p=mb&board=bug&id=1142731
