Korin has been plotting and planning and eating pickles with peanut butter and pumpernickel and porpoises (ew!) and probably parrots and peccaries (and ketchup) - or something like that. Maybe he doesn't even like pickles. But his favorite color is green. So I highlilght stuff in green for him. But I can't say much about all that just yet. I know you want more news about this week than what I'm saying. But my lips are zipped for now. Expect insanity!!
Personater & I worked on a Buggy Monday starting on ... Thursday? Saturday? Well, whatever day we started - we're making GREAT progress on the Lucky Nubertron, and on the Nuberizing special. (I take too much credit - Perso's done the coding, and I've just been testing & saying "Hey wait, not perfect yet.") So blame me for the delay with the bugfix! I may have driven Perso over the edge into insanity (join the club!) We're just going to get those Nubertrons to stop doing strange things. Over the weekend I also added some commas and a period, maybe a dash and an ellipse - to the Friday speech bubbles - and fixed a couple of mouseovers. Yay me! But it's best if this all waits to roll Live at once. And it will. When it's good to go, but not before.
Tentative Plans for Buggy "Mondays"
With work schedules and timezones and whatnot, we may be having "Buggy Mondays" on a Tuesday or a Wednesday in the upcoming weeks. We've got an insanely dedicated gang working on getting ALL the bugs out of MQ. I have a fancy, complicated, prioritized, color-coded List going. The ArchKnights neodiabolus, phoenixfire555, and Terosin have been combing the Gremlins forum for older as-yet-unfixed bugs, as well as keeping on top of the newer ones & alerting me to them. Azami, blues, Korin, Personater, and Warlic all have their unique skills they lend to the process. I can fix a thing or two, and I'm horribly bossy telling x to test y, and z to fix m, and r isn't quite perfect yet, and everyone goes qq...
Of course you who report the bugs on the forums are key in letting us know what's not working as intended. Thank you all so much!!
