    Try clearing your browser cache, and if that doesn't work, try logging in on a different browser. I'm not guaranteeing that those things will work, but occasionally when I've run into the 500 error on a site, using another browser fixes it.

    It's possibly a day or two behind, because of that freeze. That said, maybe the admins could check and make sure things are growing as they should, now that the other was fixed? :)


    ETA: I just had two seeds sprout, and two sprouts grow up, so I think things were just frozen for that one day.

    Valentine's day flowers are still breedable. Can you start the St Patty's day ones now, even though it's late? We don't have to have anything new, just a chance for relatively new players to be able to get some of them.

    We've had some that were lavender or red, as well. The Radiants were gold and red, which was very elegant and beautiful. But I've always loved multi-colored things, so these are easily going to be a favorite. :)


    Fortunately, the artists from DC don't lack imagination, or we probably would always end up with pink or red dragons. :)

    Problem similar to Mimmu: Lately I've only been watering my plants using the games, and not clicking the plants to manually water them, but for at least the past 24 hours I haven't seen the snail option even once. I am NOT watering or doing anything to anyone else's plants, so that absolutely isn't using up any of my actions.


    Right now it seems as if the snail option has been completely removed. I haven't seen it for over a day now, at least.


    I'm using Chrome, and although I have an ad blocker, both this forum and the game site are white listed. I just checked, and I have no other extensions enabled.

    Same as Mimmu: Lately I've only been watering my plants using the games, and not clicking the plants to manually water them, but for at least the past 24 hours I haven't seen the snail option even once.

    Edit: Posted this before the thread popped to the third page. All right, we can certainly start a new thread if that makes it easier for you. And yes, it does appear that everything else is working. That much is good! :)

    I thought the max action was supposed to only apply to what we can do for OTHER gardens. That's what Exterminans told us at one point. It's to limit what we can do to help out other gardens, but not supposed to limit on our own.


    Well, other than the fact that the snail is only doable once per 24 hours on each plant. And if we use the water option at more than one full drop on a given plant, the snail option won't appear. He specifically told us that we could do the snail four times during the four days of seed germination; if we never use the snail at all, each seed will take four days and sixteen hours.


    That was an increase from the original four days per seed, which meant that we are now *supposed* to do the snail to get it back down to the original four days for germination.


    Unless, of course, the time has now gone back to the original four days of germination, with no extra time. If that's the case, then yeah, I can see a limit being put on the snail option, or it being even removed completely.


    I know Exterminans isn't there anymore, but he's the one who put the mechanism in place, and he's the one who had made those other changes. We didn't complain; it was just another mechanic to the game. But he had told us his intent was to make seeds in gardens that are more active germinate faster than seeds in gardens whose players aren't as active.

    Well, what was happening with me was that I would see the "water" option on a seed (meaning I hadn't used the snail feature, and it needed more watering), so what I always do is first water it to max, then click the snail. What I'm finding now is that once I've gotten it to one drop, instead of it switching to pick up a snail, the option just disappears once I've already done the snail with two or three seeds.


    If, however, I water them to one drop or less using games only, then I *will* have the snail option on each seed. It makes it so I can't water them using the watering can except for the last drop, which sort of makes that aspect pointless, but I can get the snail option if I do that.


    A friend of mine told me that she's able to get the snail option on all of her seeds if she gets them all to one drop before she clicks the seeds, because then the only option she ever has is the snail. She only logs in once every few days, so her seeds are almost always badly in need of watering.


    I won't be able to check it again until tomorrow, obviously, but I'll let you know once I've tended my plants then.

    fkrauthan: I'm sure you'll get it all sorted out. :) I used to work IT, and I know how difficult that can be. I've also been a programmer (actually, still am - once a programmer, always a programmer), so I know how difficult figuring out bugs can be.


    While the logging off thing is annoying, so far it hasn't logged me off in the middle of a game I'm using to water my plants. I'll admit, that would be far more annoying than just having to log on every time I'm checking on them.


    truelinor Good luck with resetting your password! And welcome back! I've missed you. :)

    I've removed my cookies, and I'm still getting logged out every 10-15 minutes or so.


    I hadn't noticed the inability to bend a branch, since I rarely let my clouds build up, but I was seeing the option for water in the top selection, so long as there was at least a drop and a half missing.


    What I *am* noticing, though, is that while I will get the "water" option when there are a drop and a half missing, once it goes down to one drop, the option disappears, without the snail option popping up, at least after the first two plants I'm watering. The snail option will only show up for the first two plants I'm watering with the bucket; after that, the snail option will not appear for any of my remaining plants.


    This is not the way it has worked in the past. I'm not certain if this was a deliberate change, or just an error. The problem for me is that I like it when all four of my seeds germinate at the same time, and they're no longer going to do this if we can only do the snail on two of our plants.

    It may have something to do with the server move. I don't know if it would be better to post that in the server news thread, but fkrauthen might be looking at that more. If it's a server move issue, he definitely needs to know. It probably is; I keep getting logged out, so I think there's something wrong with the way the site is creating cookies. Your problem may be related.


    edit: Never mind, I saw that you did post it there. :)

    The plant sorting does appear to be fixed (yay! :D ), but I'm still getting logged out every few hours, even though I select the "keep me logged in" option. My browser does not automatically reject cookies; I use too many sites that require them for me to want to do that. I'm guessing that the new setup has cookies that expire too quickly.


    Edit: Another odd thing I've noticed is that the ability to remove a snail from my plants sometimes disappears while I'm watering them. If I just happened to not have watered them in a while, so have to do more than a usual amount, I lose all ability to remove the snails and gain that extra time.


    Originally that ability was added because Exterminans actually ADDED time to the plants for germination; only by picking off a snail every day could we get it back down to 4 days as it had originally been. But if this mechanic is being impaired, then it's now going to take longer for seeds to germinate.


    I usually only get to remove snails from two plants now. While I'm in the midst of watering my third or so plant, the option will suddenly disappear, even if it was there just one watering click before. This is not how it had been, so I'm wondering what in the coding has changed.

    I keep getting logged out of my greenhouse and have to log in again. It seems to happen every couple of hours, so far. Also, all my settings got messed up this last time; my flowers were sorted by oldest, and I always sort them by species. I changed it back, but I'll have to see if it goes haywire again.


    Just thought I'd mention it, we seem to have a few glitches going on at the moment. :)
