Thanks, Jon. I love lazy man changes.

o_O?"

BadFish August 19 2008 6:03 AM EDT

That option has been there for a long, long time.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] August 19 2008 6:19 AM EDT

The option has but it was never the default, good spot GW

Lord Bob August 19 2008 11:33 AM EDT

It's the default now? Rule!

bartjan August 20 2008 4:39 PM EDT

Great. Now the only thing I'd need the greasemonkey script for is a refresh button for the left frame...

AdminJonathan August 20 2008 5:16 PM EDT

why do you need to refresh the left frame so often?

[RX3]Cotillion August 20 2008 5:23 PM EDT

I'd rather have bookmarks rather than the refresh key on the left frame.

INDColtsFan18 August 20 2008 5:23 PM EDT

I agree refreshing left frame would be a nice add-on.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 20 2008 5:24 PM EDT

BA?

Lord Bob August 20 2008 5:54 PM EDT

"why do you need to refresh the left frame so often?"

I find that my listed BA is not always accurate. This normally happens if I fight many opponents in rapid succession. The left frame does not refresh fast enough/enough times to display the correct (lower) BA.

Lord Bob August 20 2008 5:56 PM EDT

I should note this this is really only a problem when I seemingly have 1 or 2 BA left and I keep getting the Out Of BA page. Otherwise it's not noticeable enough to warrant a request for a fix.

TheHatchetman August 20 2008 6:44 PM EDT

if you hit 'back' after spending a BA, the frame will show your BA before the battle. If afterwards, you spend a BA, it will remove 2 (possibly more, depending on how many times you back up your browser) from your displayed total and set it back properly... Doing this after you've spent your BA means that you do not have the 2 BA to spend so that the displayed amount can be reset properly. Unless your connection and the server are much much much much faster than I expect, this is likely how you are running into these problems, as I often spend 20+BA in under 5 seconds by holding down the enter key and have yet to come across this.

Far as updating BA, if you enter the forge, your BA updates upon entry (no need for any BA spending, just walk in...). If it's not an issue of BA, and you just transferred a char or something, it doesn't take long at all to refresh the left frame via right-click...

Not against a refresh link on the sidebar, but not for it either. Just figured I'd point out the potential causes/solutions currently in place. ^_^

Lord Bob August 20 2008 7:14 PM EDT

Hatch, it is not a back button issue as you suggest. This is a separate issue that I now can guess is probably related to other internet connection problems I have at home. If nobody else is having this problem, I'll assume it's on my end. Either way, it's not troublesome enough to bother Jon with a fix request anyway.

AdminJonathan August 20 2008 7:19 PM EDT

> if you hit 'back' after spending a BA, the frame will show your BA before the battle

you're right. hmm...

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 20 2008 7:27 PM EDT

furthermore, when you switch from one character, such as normal to another, such as a tourney character, then your ba stays on the number the first character has rather than the character you are switching to.

bartjan August 20 2008 10:23 PM EDT

"why do you need to refresh the left frame so often?"

To check the current BA amount. What 'Home' used to be good for, before that page was changed.

AdminJonathan August 21 2008 12:09 AM EDT

Okay, sidebar reloads the BA count every 60s now. Good enough?

AdminJonathan August 21 2008 12:13 AM EDT

> when you switch from one character... then your ba stays on the number the first character has

fixed. (requires sidebar reload.)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 21 2008 12:17 AM EDT

super awesomeness!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 21 2008 12:26 AM EDT

when i switch to my t char, it doesn't work, however when i switch back to igot it does work. i not only reloaded sidebar, i also closed and restarted browser. still the same behavior.

good enough? i definitely like it more than we had before. time will tell though. thanks jon.

QBOddBird August 21 2008 12:28 AM EDT

Awesome, thanks Jon! Auto-updating BA!!


Man, if I was still fighting, I would be SO elated!

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] August 21 2008 12:52 AM EDT

The fight link and change char link stop working after a couple clicks now. I have to keep on refreshing the side bar to get them to work.

AdminJonathan August 21 2008 1:44 AM EDT

somehow reloading BA does this. reverted, for now.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] August 21 2008 1:46 AM EDT

I have to repeatedly refresh the sidebar now if I want to "find a user"

And once I refresh it and do the "find a user" feature, I'll have to refresh it again before it works again. I know of at least 2 other users having this same problem.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] August 21 2008 1:48 AM EDT

Actually, now that you've changed it back, it works again. ^_^

AdminJonathan August 21 2008 2:40 AM EDT

put back the reloaded. bug was jquery's fault; added workaround.

AdminJonathan August 21 2008 2:47 AM EDT

are you still seeing this w/ the latest?

blackshadowshade August 21 2008 4:25 AM EDT

While you're at it, Jon, what about a way of updating the score of opponents without having to add and delete someone from your favorites list?

Adminedyit August 21 2008 5:44 AM EDT

edit / remove non clan works if your list is all clan members

edit / add clan members close to my score works if its not all clan members

AdminJonathan August 21 2008 7:12 AM EDT

> when i switch to my t char, it doesn't work, however when i switch back to igot it does work

fixed

Flamey August 21 2008 8:01 AM EDT

Browser doesn't load properly when using the sidebar. When I click fight, nothing appears to happen, no loading bar at the bottom, or moving thing under close button of FF. I don't know what happens, sometimes you have to click fight again cos it gets stuck loading.

Not sure if this issue is related, but it wasn't happening before.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 21 2008 9:47 AM EDT

it does appear to be fixed on my end now, thanks again!

AdminJonathan August 21 2008 10:31 AM EDT

> Browser doesn't load properly when using the sidebar.

You need to force-reload your sidebar.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] August 21 2008 10:32 AM EDT

Thanks, Jon.

The "find a user" feature seems to be working just fine now. ^_^
