The cancel frenzy is spreading... (in Changelog)

AdminNightStrike August 25 2009 4:22 PM EDT

You can't get a refund, but at least you can get someone to take your trash out for you.

When you return an item early, it won't go back instantly. It will, however, go back within a few minutes.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 25 2009 4:22 PM EDT

woot, thanks!

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] August 25 2009 4:23 PM EDT

Is this for rentals as well as loaned items?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 25 2009 4:23 PM EDT

rentals, loans or both?

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] August 25 2009 4:23 PM EDT

NS is da Man!!!!

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] August 25 2009 4:23 PM EDT

Great change!!!

QBRanger August 25 2009 4:26 PM EDT


Sweet change.

NooneKnows August 25 2009 4:27 PM EDT

much thanks, NS. awesome addition.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 25 2009 4:28 PM EDT

Brilliant work NS!

AdminNightStrike August 25 2009 4:29 PM EDT

I thought it was for just loans. Apparently, some people have done it with rentals. I'm not sure how.

AdminNightStrike August 25 2009 4:30 PM EDT

I think I just did it with a rental.... so there you go. You have it on both.

QBRanger August 25 2009 4:30 PM EDT

It works if you rented an item.

It does not work for items you have in rentals that are not yet rented.

As it is programmed now.

AdminNightStrike August 25 2009 4:32 PM EDT

That is correct, yes. The latter suggestion is not what I was going for with this change.

QBRanger August 25 2009 4:34 PM EDT

This should help a bit for the forgers. Quite a lot I hope.

Nice change, thanks.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] August 25 2009 4:39 PM EDT

Item comes back before end of forging loan->Item replaces a rental that also goes back before end of loan->Challenge bonus is up by 10% across the board.

Win! Excellent change.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] August 25 2009 4:44 PM EDT

Great change NS! Thanks d8 for the suggestion!

GnuUzir August 25 2009 4:47 PM EDT

Woo thanks NS =)

QBRanger August 25 2009 4:49 PM EDT

It is little additions like this, and the cancel CM, and reset MPB that make it much easier to play CB and make the whole game much more enjoyable.

Don't stop the work NS.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] August 25 2009 4:52 PM EDT

I have to give credit to noone too for this suggestion as well. Sorry to have given it all to Once again thanks for the change NS!

Demigod August 25 2009 4:54 PM EDT

Thanks for the coding, NS. As I rarely see Jon post, you're the reminder that the game isn't being left out to dry. Keep up the small changes.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] August 25 2009 4:58 PM EDT

Thanks from me as well. This is a nice addition to the game.

AdminNightStrike August 27 2009 1:26 AM EDT

You're welcome, all.

I think for rentals there should be a small change. I had 2 rental items that had 2 weeks left in rentals and when they were returned, they went straight back to my character so I basically lost 2 weeks of renting those items out. Can you change this so rented items go back to the rental master?

Demigod August 27 2009 10:14 AM EDT

How about including our rented out items in the Manage screen?

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 27 2009 10:16 AM EDT

I agree with SK because you paid a rental fee to get a small income.

QBOddBird August 27 2009 12:06 PM EDT

SK - if I'm not wrong, you can select for rental items to rent out multiple times from the Rental store screen itself. There's no change needed.

Yep, Return Item to me after X rentals of X days.

Just change it from being one rental. Easy pie.

winner winner August 28 2009 10:27 AM EDT

OB, I had 4 weeks on that in the beginning and I still had 2 weeks left when it was returned to me. It wasn't returned to me because I didn't put enough time on the item, it was because the person that rented it sent it back.

AdminNightStrike August 28 2009 10:34 AM EDT

Ouch, sounds like a bug. Actually, it sounds like the exact situation that I was trying to avoid by not including rentals in the "return early" feature at all.


Unfortunately, I won't be home for a bit to fix this, and I don't have my ssh keys to log in, but I promise you that I will fix this before doing anything else with the site.

QBRanger August 28 2009 3:23 PM EDT

Would it be bad to ask those with rentals just not to send them back until this issue gets fixed?

AdminShade August 28 2009 4:07 PM EDT

That would be sensible :)

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] August 29 2009 3:45 PM EDT

Im having a problem sending 2 items that were loaned to me for a month... i sent all my items i got out of rentals back just fine though.

AdminNightStrike August 29 2009 9:28 PM EDT

Hmm... I might just have to disable rental returns... :(
