Bug in Donating Boards to Library

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Pandora of Baja, Jul 27, 2010.

  1. I donated my boards to the library and was only given the reg wood points. which is 1. per board.
    I had 4000 frostwood
    44k oak
    50k ash
    20k yew
    these were all in deed form. The npc didn't see the difference in the colors
    Bewarned..

    walks off crying:sad2:

    Did you click on the donate button next to the picture of the regular wood? If so it will take any boards and treat them as regular. You have to click on the donate button next to the wood you are actually donating. I think only regular wood is on the first page, you have to go to the next page for more choices.

    This was YOUR error sir/ma'am....it's a known mechanic, not a bug.

    Actually, it would be extremely bad and undocumented interface design. The interface should be intuitive, and the coding behind it intelligent enough, that mistakes like these don't happen.

    The first sign of a bad programmer is placing blame on the end user.

    No 2 interfaces on the library donation system are the same. it is a very hard system to use. It could use a revamp no doubt and seriously the donation amounts are way to high to keep my interest in donating. all of the donation programs should be revamped. They are horribly written.

    That will teach you to miss the board meetings!
     
  10. I was just trying to warn people about the bug...not everyone know's about this problem. I would have loved a warning before donating the boards. Dang NPC could have told me to click each colored board first.:gun:next time npc
