Postby Viking Trevor » Thu Feb 09, 2017 2:51 pm

Hey YoFans!

Click here to listen to Episode 9!
Click here for the previous episode!

What's in This Episode?
Feature/Art Updates!
Lots of bug fixes in the last couple weeks, including: Pets (which we get into more detail about in this episode), Apartment room naming, News Tool updates, and more! Our team is currently locked away working on some longer-term updates (like Auction House improvements), so stay tuned in coming weeks for some more details. When it comes to Art updates; Valentine's Day theme is here! Our team has had a great time decorating so far but it can't last forever; it won't be long before we're deep in the culture of New Orleans!

In other updates, if you haven't opened the YoWorld Mobile Companion App lately, be sure to check it out! We've just released a brand new slot machine, new Match 3 levels, and more. For more info, click here!

Postcard Handhelds!
Congratulations to April and Souliouscookie for being this episode's postcard draw winners! You've both been granted a sweet new Postcard Handheld Item to carry around in YoWorld. In two episodes we'll have another draw for a Postcard Handheld, so to add your postcard into the draw, make sure to send them to the address below (we'll also send you a bit of YoCash for the trouble!). We also read every postcard off on the air, so get ready for a shout-out. :D

Topic of the Week: Bug Fixes! (featuring Viking Nick)
Jess and I are joined by Viking Nick to talk about the ins and the outs of fixing bugs! We learn more about how the fix for Pets was investigated, implemented, and talk about how prioritization plays a big part in getting around to different problems and new features within YoWorld. After that, we ask Nick some of your questions about himself, his job, and other things you might be hoping to see. There's lots of information in this jam-packed ball of polished gum, so get to listening!

As with anything in YoWorld, we are always on the lookout for your feedback. If you have any comments, concerns, queries, conundrums, congratulations or anything else alliterative, please make sure to let us know below.

Your Assignments This Week
• Do you have any further questions about pets? Any extra questions for Nick about what he does? Don't be afraid to ask!
• Is there anything you'd love us to dig into for the next episode? If we pick your suggested topic from this thread, you'll get 50 YoCash for a small spending spree!

Thank you for updating us about the pets! It was very informative.

For the next episode, I would love for you to dig into two things regarding our inventories:

1) Is there any way you can make it so that we can see exactly where in our inventory an item actually is? For instance, if you see an item under the IN USE tab and click on it, instead of just moving the item back to our inventory, it would also show which house/room it is currently located so we could see if we really wanted it moved.

2) Is there any way you could make it so that before purchasing an item, whether from the store or AH, it would show if you already own that item and if so, how many.

The entire room groaned upon reading this. Not sure if you should be proud or disappointed with yourself. ;)

Loved the episode. Nick was very informative, Thks! Nick. My question is can pets learn a new trick like roll over or maybe even eat from lil dog dishes lol. It may sound crazy but in real life I am allergic to cats and dogs prob otters and jaguars etc. so my pets mean a lot to me on yo. I have many, I would love one that would eat from a bowl maybe even an interactive one that did a roll over trick or fetch. Thks! Nick. Will post pic later of my favorite pets.

Viking Nick, thank you so much for fixing the pets. Now when the OWLS play baseball we can see our mascot, Waterloo, run the bases with his owner. :)

Big huge thank you for all of the bug fixes and really great changes.

I have little to complain for and everything is working so much better. ( for the most part)

Keep up the great work and tell those Devs good job!
