Re: Card Spoiler Errors

Post by Astrid Varelse » Thu Jun 18, 2015 8:52 pm

Let's talk about the order of Gender Points

If you go to the Advanced Sortable Spoiler, you can search "mo" in the "GP Cost" field and you'll find, disregarding Owners, the following:
  • [card]Backup Striders[/card]
  • [card]Deeka's Delight[/card]
This is because all Male/Otherkind cards before Fortune at Vell's End we're release as "O/M". (You can also see this when you look at the Gender drop down. Male/Otherkind shows up as "Otherkind/Male".) [Fix?]

This brings up two big points:
  • The "GP Cost" feild in the Advanced Sortable Spoiler should be order agnostic. (I should be able to search "mhhm" and find [c]Wand of Rapture[/c]) [Fix?]
  • Should the text on the sortable spoiler be updated to further support the proper gender order? [Fix?]
With Fortune at Vell's End, it seems like the gender order listed on cards has gotten much more consistent, and to help clarify for anyone, this appears to be the official (And most sensible) order:
  1. :m: | :f: | :h: | :o:
  2. :m: :f: | :m: :h: | :m: :o: | :f: :h: | :f: :o: | :h: :o:
  3. :m: :f: :h: | :m: :f: :o: | :m: :h: :o: | :f: :h: :o:
  4. :m: :f: :h: :o: <-(This is the pattern)
  5. No gender
Notes:
  • Currently, the Sortable Spoiler is a bit of a mess when you sort by Gender... Have a look at Fortune at Vell's End for example. [Fix?]
  • Don't forget to apply this to the gender order listed on card skills, such as that found on Facial Battalion
  • You can quickly find all mislabeled skill text by advanced searching Rule Test for

    Code: Select all

    ":o: :m:", ":o: :f:", ":o: :h:", ":h: :m:", ":h: :f:", ":f: :m:"
  • You can also find mislabeled costs by searching "om", "of", "oh", "hm", "hf", "fm".
Let me know what you think!
~ A tip for GP Cost becoming order agnostic, look character by character through the entered data, if you find a 'g/G', 'f/F', 'h/H' or 'o/O', add 1 to that gender. If you find a different character, "Sorry. no cards matched your search!"

So obviously the gender-order related stuff in my last post was a tad premature... After having a look at the checklist for Brundali, I'm super happy to see the pattern being followed, I hope once all the skills have been revealed that it's been followed in there too :)

Seems like Caramel 4th Vanillas' Promo's aren't quite as potent as their counterparts -- Oops ;)

I'm not sure if this is an issue with the spoiler, or the printing of the card, but the promo copy of Endowed Equine from Strawberry is marked as an Uncommon in the picture.

Regardless, if it's a printing issue it should probably be put down in the notes.

[card]Tropical Tryst[/card]: The spoiler says the cost for its skill is :1: :o:, :ex:, but the skill on the actual card doesn't have a GP cost. It's just :1:, :ex:.

Hidden stamina and GP for Furres in the Card Spoiler, if you look at the cards as a list, for Brundali Rail Heist. I also try to do M/F/H/O, but it keeps going to F/H/O.

Yeah I see what you mean, it seems that all SP and PE's have been removed from Brundali Rail Heist. If you select the card and read the information on the right (plain text), it's not there.

Our title convention is that the word after a hyphen is lower case. So the spoiler is correct, and the card is incorrect. :)

Looking through the reveal of the Climax cards released today over at They're Back! Tanglebrook Edition!

Victory Squat has an error in it's flavor text -- "repsective" instead of respective.

Obviously it isn't a card spoiler error yet, but just giving you the heads up in advance

Oh man, I really feel embarrassed now. I've been using the spoiler pretty regularly since 2009, yet I never noticed before that the pages for each individual card are color-coded by gender. I guess most of the time I'm just trying to see all the options for cards that meet a few specific criteria (e. g. what's the best 1-GP Female Furre to put in this new deck,) so I don't usually click through to the individual card pages, and I have all the card images saved to a directory on my hard drive so I can refer to them at will. But still, I can't believe I never noticed that....
BlackDragonIV wrote:Charming Siege - Artist URL has a %20 (a space?) before it, breaking the URL (%20www.furaffinity.net/user/superbum)
For me in Firefox, hovering over the link doesn't show any URL, clicking on the link doesn't do anything, and if I look at the page source, the URL does, in fact, have a space in it, and consequently is not a valid URL. (Ironically, I can't copy exactly what it says into the forum, because the forum will automatically convert it to a correct URL....)

The reason you so often see "%20" in cases like these is that URLs are defined as not being able to have certain characters in them, including spaces, and the '%' character has been set aside to be substituted for a disallowed character. If the path to a file on a file system that's being served on the web contains a character that isn't allowed to be part of a URL, the established convention is to substitute a '%' character followed by two hex digits which represent the ASCII encoding of the original character. This is referred to as "escaping" that character (and the escape key on a keyboard is actually named for that usage. Before it was used to escape from a program in a semi-literal sense, text editors like vi used it to switch between a mode where you used the letter keys to enter text and a mode where the letter keys represented commands like moving the cursor and cutting and pasting lines.)

The ASCII encoding for the space character (which is the character that most commonly has to be escaped in this way) is "20". So when a web server receives a request containing the characters "%20", it knows that the path to the file you're looking for actually contains a space instead. (Since the '%' character is set aside for escaping special characters, this also means that the URL for a file whose original file name has a '%' in it will use the characters "%25" instead.)

(Technically it's really a Unicode character encoded in the UTF-8 format, but the UTF-8 format is designed in such a way that all ASCII characters can be represented by the same two hex digits that were assigned to those characters in ASCII, so it is backwards compatible with text that was encoded using the ASCII standard.)
