Changelog for September 2021

Some Changelog Info!

To better protect our admin team and members alike, the Coordinators have decided to implement a Changelog to better record our corrections and discussions so admins may link directly to this to show members that things have been fixed and discussed! 

The Changelog will update every Friday as that is when they is most available to make changes and answer group notes. That is also the day that we check the Suggestion Box on the website!

How Can I Make a Suggestion/ Update Request?

There are currently Three Ways to make a suggestion for group betterment or to show a correction that needs to be made. They are listed in order of EFFICIENCY. The fastest way to contact the team is listed first.

  • NOTE THE GROUP – The Group is not leaving DeviantART at this time and this is the best way for us to keep tabs on member suggestions and edits. If you post a Question in the Discord Chat you may be asked to send that question in to the group so it may be reviewed. It’s conclusion will be posted here and you will be tagged with a link to the changelog at that time.
  • LEAVE A WEBSITE SUGGESTION – The Website Suggestion Box is anonymous to members and will be kept that way. You will not receive a tag telling you that the suggestion/ change has been made. 
  • LEAVE A DISCORD QUESTION OR SUGGESTION – You may ask a group related question in the #Questions channel on Discord, or leave a suggestion in the #Suggestion-Box channel. PLEASE NOTE: We have a “Don’t Block The Box” policy in the Discord Chat and most times, the suggestions will be left with no answer. Discussion is discouraged in that channel; please move discussion to the General Chat areas. Suggestions made on Discord are not anonymous and you will be tagged with a link to the changelog when they have been resolved.

  • Suggestion to create a sparring activity between EBs and other ARPGs. [B]
    • “May I propose something like a sparring activity where your Ballator can battle other arpg aniamls? Since it’s already established that Ballators like to fight. Maybe it would just provide some Denarii or a rare chance to drop a battle item?” —

    • We do have plans to bring sparring back to Ballators in numerous ways, however, at this time it is on the back burner due to the hiatus. We have considered perhaps doing a MQ prompt that involves sparring in some shape or form, so that may come to fruition. 
    • When it comes to an activity around Ballators and other ARPGS, we are hesitant to create an activity that requires another ARPG in order to participate. Not only does it limit those who only want to participate in Equus Ballators, but it also brings in complications of working with ARPGs to ensure that they are being portrayed and interacted with as they want. Due to our limited resources, this is not something we plan on looking into. Nevertheless, this could potentially be something to think about in the future.
  • Form for the Design Updates Forum is unable to be seen. [B]
    • The team is currently looking into and working on this problem. When we first encountered this, we created a test account and had no problems accessing the form, but then ended up with the same problem ourself. We hope to have this fixed ASAP.
