Tips for Submitting - May 28, 2008, 11:18:57 am by ElasticMuffin
Here's a quick couple of tips if you want your Norns processed fast:

  • Always have a description and tags that point out all the Norn's features, including breeds, colors, and other interesting things such as "grenorn", "breeder", etc. "strange" Norns will generally take longer to process because they need more checking.

  • Have a good picture (in the case of C3/DS norns, this means taking one in-game before exporting)! Without a good picture we can't accept it, no matter how good your description is.

  • Submit similar Norns close to each other. We can process batches of Norns quicker if the similar ones are together in the queue.

These things will help everything go faster and help your creatures get accepted more rapidly.

Search Bug Fixed - March 28, 2008, 12:55:47 am by ElasticMuffin
A major issue with a recent tweak I made to the search engine caused any creatures-browsing to stop working unless you were logged in. It's fixed now. :)

... seriously, if fuzzie hadn't pointed this out today, I'd probably never have noticed. You guys need to complain about problems more! I promise I'll fix them. :)

Milestone Mania - February 14, 2008, 03:01:55 am by ElasticMuffin
Hello, guys- did you know that TCR has, as of this evening, had 1000 creatures accepted into its database? It's true! Grendel Man has claimed the lucky ID-1000 spot with his charming Goldfish Grendal, Goldia. Congrats go to him and everyone else who has been busily submitting recently to help us achieve this milestone. (Your prize[1] is in the mail, Grendel Man ;)

In other news, I would like to note that I have introduced two additional members to the moderating staff, Malkin and kyevan. They will help to process submitted creatures along with the other moderators and myself henceforth.

More updates and perhaps a cool new project are slated for the future. I hope everyone continues to enjoy the site!

[1] Sorry, not actually a prize other than the everlasting fame and glory. But it's pretty cool, right?

Download problems (UPDATED) - November 26, 2007, 03:37:29 pm by ElasticMuffin
A small but critical bug with the download script that reared its ugly head when my host switched to PHP5 has now been squashed. As for the people who have been experiencing "Error: No creature with the given ID is in the database." messages, downloads should now be working again.

Sorry about that!

Update: I have fixed another issue that was preventing you from being able to go back and forth between pages of creatures in the database correctly. Phew. I hope this fixes everything, but if not, post a comment to this news post and let me know.
