    Woot! Thanks for doing this! :D

    One oops, though; the link for the Break-Out Locations is still showing the old addy:

    which wouldn't get people anywhere but the "what the heck are you trying to do?" page. ;->

    Everything else is changed to the new info. :)

  4. Ocarinah Well-Known Member

    Thanks for letting me know and will fix it right away. Things were acting weird at the end when I had to get going. I plan on going through that thread and making a new one which I can edit so all of the houses can be found in first (and second if needed) posting.

    Not a big deal but you are missing the h in housing for the EQ2 design gallery link description
  6. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    Well, if the Powers have /typo commands, just in case... ;)

    Kudos to Oaky, though, for revamping all this and making it viable again! :) And, apparently, fixing the issue! :D

    Thanks for catching my mistakes. Doing this was on my todo list since a few people requested me to do this. Finally getting it done. Still more I wanna do but it is getting there. :)
  8. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    How are you going to get it Stickied, eventually? Who do you talk to for that? /nosy

    Can I make a suggestion of adding somewhere on there how to add homeshow chat and maybe a few of the facebook groups like the maj'dul decorating one.
  10. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    You mean, how to add Antonia.Bayle_Homeshow as a Chat Channel?'s been so long, and I'm not in-game right now... Hmm. I think you right-click on the chat window and select Chat Options, which gets you the big overall chat screen with all the various check boxes. On the right, there's the Join area, where you'd type in Antonia.Bayle_Homeshow (or just Homeshow if you're on Antonia Bayle at the moment), then hit the check box, then hit the Join button, then rub your belly, pat your head, and stand on one foot, all at the same time (though those last bits might not be necessary, but They really didn't make it easy).

    Of course, I might have missed something in there, so I hope someone who actually knows what they're doing will post something more official/correct on here and yeah, get that stickied, too (I always worry, for instance, that it's actually Antonia_Bayle.Homeshow, and I've waited for a response for help without realizing I'm the only one on the wrong channel). :D

    I'm already on there but when i changed computers or had to reinstall I had to search around for several minutes on what the command to join it is.
  12. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    Yeah, I've had issues in the past (well, not just me...) where for whatever reason, the Powers decided to abolish the rights of Thurgadin (or Splitpaw/Storms/Valor before The Great Consolidation) to connect to the rest of the world through Homeshow, and if it went on for very long, the channel itself was gone from my Join list, and I had to re-do it from scratch once we got permission again, which necessitated some head-scratching for a bit. :-/

    Didn't work for me - is that the only chat channel for homeshow - Antonia.Bayle_Homeshow? or is there one for each server?

    Ok figured it out - the chat channel is Antonia_Bayle.Homeshow (Not Antonia.Bayle_Homeshow) reverse the dot and underscore!
  14. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    Ack! Okay, my bad; yeah, it is Antonia_Bayle.Homeshow! :-/

    Sorry for the confusion... :(

    Good idea. I hate facebook and the Ocarinah account was reported. I don't remember how I became a member to Homeshow with Ocarinah and wasn't in Maj'dul one. I need help with the how to join facebook groups. When I have that info I can make a thread about how to join all three things and put link above to the thread.
  17. Trixwynter Well-Known Member

    Not at home right now but I'll try tonight to send you what I know. I may noy have all of them
  18. santargria Well-Known Member

    I avoid it like the plague!
  19. Gretel Well-Known Member

    In addition to this, you can join chat channels with the /join command, i.e. /join Antonia_Bayle.homeshow :)
  20. Merriel Well-Known Member

    Ooh, I just noticed the new sticky thread. Thank you, Ocarinah! We really needed this. :)
