    I enjoyed the event, but it's over. Should I report the spamming criers as a bug. Can I set something to ignore them? I feel better now that I've vented, thank you for your time.....

    I heard "flashing" and came running. Needless to say, I am a little disappointed. :<

    But it does seem odd that it is so cumbersome to update town criers. Treasures of Tok was announced for...months?...a year?...after it began. I wish I were technical enough to suggest a technical solution--like a script or something--but I really don't know what's involved in updating the crier phrases.

    Need I call the ASPCA over your desire to be flashed by oversized, pixelated ground fowl? :whip:


    By "flashing," I mean that the turkeys are still spawning but they then despawn within a second or two. They were doing this the first year they were introduced as well

    Less than a second.

    Just long enough to see them, not long enough to know at first that you are not hallucinating.

    And indeed they must be turned off if they haven't. (Turned off, de-spawned (because they aren't normal town cryers as I recall), or whatever.)

    There's a new arc starting, and it seems pretty grim and it's a tad distracting to have a town cryer spouting off with rather out of date news.

    At least on Pacific there are also some npcs yelling about some other old story stuff at WBB. Might even be older than the turkeys.

    I sign that it would be nice if all of these npcs were told to quiet down after the associated events were over. If you want to keep them in for history then please make them only spout off if someone actually clicks on them or something to get them going (and then only do it once of course).
