The quest for the best blogging technique continues, and the latest addition is the "Read More" break. I am endeavoring to make the blogs a little more trim, mostly so visitors can see a couple or more of them on the screen at the same time. If the blog is a long one, or a tutorial, the other posts get shoved further and further down the page. I hope you all find the new format enjoyable, or at least tolerable.
It's a short post today, though I have some more for everyone tomorrow. TTFN, ta ta for now :p
Well, after a little searching, Erorus and his moderator have posted something official regarding notifications:
Yeah, I didn't want to announce anything yet because I'm not sure which path the site will take. The message you see says everything I can say about it right now: we're not accepting new subscriptions at this time. -Erorus
Many of my friends I have made across the realms have started with a single shining item, which I may never have seen had I not been alerted to their presence in the first place. And a fairly standard part of my negotiations involves giving a steep discount to players will to share their sets here. I enjoy meeting new people with a passion for transmogrification, and the Undermine Journal has been a big part of my ability to do so.
I just recently started up on Earthen Ring and Alexstrasza, seeing as my friends Naessa and Devili are there, respectively. I really enjoy breaking into a new market, especially when friends are there who can benefit from my acquirement techniques. Naessa thoroughly enjoys looking her best, so when she asks if I can watch for something, I'll have the resources to accomplish that goal. I'd like to keep it that way. Browsing the AH on a single realm is pretty time consuming. Across 18 realms, it's nigh impossible.
Update: Today, there was an update on Undermine Journal to quench the fires of rage. I'm glad to hear that they are working on fixing the issue, and even more glad that they aren't cancelling the subscription model:
As some have already noticed, new Market Notifications subscriptions are temporarily unavailable. Current subscribers still have service, but we cannot accept new subscriptions at this time. This issue is caused by server conditions beyond our control, which we are trying to mitigate.
We have implemented a fix to improve the performance of the market notifications system, which we will monitor for a few days before making new subscriptions available again. If you are a current subscriber, please let us know if you notice any issues with your service.
Thanks for your patience in this matter.
While the warriors have been fighting for attention, each of them has made a little progress towards their goals. Arithan found a friend and new guild mate when he looked for some arena action with random players. Amerisia stepped into the arena with Naessa as protection. Aellin continued beating her mace against she could find to work towards her cloak.
I'd love to prattle on about everything, but it is actually nearing the eleventh hour here, so I must get in there and finish the week up. Thanks for stopping by, and I'll have a few more sets tomorrow for everyone. See you then! :p
