Until certain things are fixed in the Chargen review mechanics, we are not accepting or declining any applications at this time. If you submitted you will need to remove it yourself and re-submit.

The 'stable' of chars that people saw has been fixed and they are no longer there.

If I delete the submitted app through the game, will I have to rewrite everything or will it just be un-submitted and I'll be able to edit it the way it is (again, presuming that I can log in again at some point...)?

It'll be gone. You can just go to the character list via the webform and copy all the stuff into a text file first.

We are approaching the point where we are building the in-game structure for Chargen. Additionally, plots are being fleshed out and people assigned.
Objects, crafts, and other such things are done enough for alpha.

Well, that's my problem. I can't get to the webform to even check anything, it won't let me get past the front page.

Try in a different browser or clear your cache or something.

Success. I did end up needing to rework some things, particularly since there were new skills put in.

Oi... please don't do this. I've got several bugs fixed in the web chargen. 4 skills minimum now, fixed the modal popup help issues, repaired the login bug that was letting folks see 'public' characters (this was a session issue when you'd leave your browser for a few hours, it would time out but the system thought you were still logged in).

I'll be tweaking some help files later tonight and continuing on with putting the finishing touches on the staff review portal and sending emails out when characters are accepted or rejected.

Please, continue to let me know about bugs you run into, even the very small ones. It's extremely helpful to me.

Personally I'm extremely pleased with how the chargen system has been working so far. I really thought I would have to shut it down after a day or two to make repairs, but I've been able to make the few minor repairs on the live system and haven't run into any major glitches. This is good.

Keep up the great work, everyone.

I can adjust my background after submitting but nothing else.

If you go into the skill selection portion with some skills already selected (eg - from the overview), then the save skills button won't be active until you select a skill, even if you already have 4-8 selected.

Lately when I log into the generator I have to log in twice. When I log in, I typically use the drop down actions menu to select character generation, but it logs me out instead. When I log back in for the second time everything works fine.

Can we edit our applications that are sitting in the queue or something? I want to adjust my skillz. I tried to log in on the web page and it just keeps sitting there.

You have to delete it from the client log in and then restart it.

We aren't supposed to do that? Crap. My bad. Does it Jack everything up?

Probably.

Anyways, when Chargen is finished up I'm scheduling our opening RPTs.

Besides that lil bit... We're ready to open.

I wish you'd quit saying that. It just gets me excited every time and then disappointed when I wake up the next day and things aren't open. :P

Hah! It won't be all sudden and such. I'm planning to have the RPTs on one of these weekends coming up.

Tempting to throw you all on a boat and call it a colony ship just for kicks...
