    Has anyone had any experience with deco falling through the floor all of a sudden?? I have a decorative topiary (with a spider plant on top of it) that has fallen under the floor. Well it is half under the floor and half above but I cannot unlock it!!

    It is a classic design that cannot be customized so I cant try that. Would it do me any good to try a GM?? It looks bad the way it is. :confused:

    It would not raise with a tool because it said it wasnt in my house but the GM fixed it. Yay! :)

    Thanks for the advice!

    Now I have pieces of carpet missing..not the pieces you buy but the deeded ones from the heritage token.

    Two of them had a piece disappear. When I tried to redeed it with an axe, another piece disappeared but no deed. So I paged a GM and while I was still getting messages that I was 6th in the queue, 2 of the 3 missing pieces reappeared. Then I got a message from the GM that they do not replace lost or stolen items (I had asked them to redeed the rugs since I couldn't)

    Odd I thought but nonetheless the rug is whole (I hadn't noticed that the other one still had a piece missing) so I decided I better move it from that spot. But it just removed a piece ..again! *sighs*.

    So I paged again and told them my rugs were not lost or stolen, most of them were on the floor in pieces but I cannot pick them up. They said the game masters aren't available to help with this issue....

    *shakes her head*

    I have no answer for you, Miri, just wanted to tell ya that I really like your scowly face

    as long as the rug doesn't change I would probably just page every few days and hope that you get someone that knows what you're talking about.... I remember one time I placed a token tree in a spot where it leaned into the house thru the walls, and tho I could place it could not re-deed it.... a GM came and axed it for me, and right after he got done telling me that the deed would be lost said "oh, here it is, in my pack" and gave it to me

    Thanks *laughs* I was pretty peeved when I got the we-do-not-replace-lost-items message. I was also annoyed that the GM didnt even bother to show himself so I could at least explain. I am not sure if he even saw the rugs! If he was in front of me I could even point to the holy rugs .... SEE! There it is!!! Not lost *rolls eyes*

    So I think I will page again in a few days and see if I can get someone to axe both rugs for me. The only other option I have for myself it the axe the remaining pieces and lose the deeds.

    I just hope that whatever is causing these things to happen has stopped!
