      I had to do a password reset with the new download: no biggie, but now it's not accepting my new password AND the re-reset (after clearing the cache and the cookies) isn't accepting the newer habitrpg generated password either. Suggestions?

      @Michael - alas, the platform we're using to compile the mobile apps (PhoneGap) won't easily export our project to Blackberry. It will make a build, and we'll probably build & upload anyway, but no promises on what it will be like. Luckily, since it's open source and will get the app 80% there, we hope BB users might step in and sort of finish it up

      Elan - Derby 0.5 upgrade is just around the corner, I'm deploying to test servers today and should push in the next few days. If this doesn't solve most of the "basic functionality" bugs, I don't know what will!

    15. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Elan Harpaz on July 1, 2013

      I am still having trouble with basic functionality. I already only visit the site about once a week and during those times it does not even seem to make the recording of completed tasks simple. It may register a checkmark for 1 task, but trying a second recording of the next one down will do nothing as many times as I click the checkmark.

      Got a big update on mobile & the framework upgrade (stability) coming up in the next couple weeks, just about there! In the mean time, follow Twitter / Facebook (either or, they're mirrored) for micro-updates, and Tumblr for medium updates. I try to post back here as often as I can, basically copy/paste the Tumblr blog - but (and I know this is super trivial) the KS's WYSIWYG is a mega-PITA and it takes 45m to fix the formatting and links, so I usually save it for the really important updates.

      Same thing happened to me. Using chrome on Windows Vista. Chrome version: Version 25.0.1364.172 m

      HabitRPG doesn't even recognize my username.... and it won't let me apply for a new password.

      Hello Tyler~ My HabitRPG chrome extension was just updated recently -which is all find and dandy- however all of my information was *completely* scrapped. Not a single bit of my data was left over from the update. TT~TT Even my party was disconnected; I can no longer see my party member's avatar. I am very saddened by this as HabitRPG has actually done a lot to improve my lifestyle and I would hate to see all of my progress gone. I was using my Facebook to login to the extension.

      @Leo - I added this for you: http://goo.gl/RmSno

    35. Coffee.small

      Creator Tyler Renelle on March 15, 2013

      Those are very good points. We're trying to make as many things opt-in for the power users as possible, so perhaps we should add a shortcut mechanism for social features, for users such as yourself. Email me (tylerrenelle gmail) your user id and I can unlock some things for you. At present, we're gonna be rigging things around and our curent thought is there won't be much more to unlock (feature wise) after lvl 5, so you should be in safe territory

    36. 162727_10150392156240122_931323_n_1_.small

      Creator Leo Staley on March 15, 2013

      Thank you. I apologize for my slightly sarcastic tone. For me, the social aspect is the #1 important part, and the gamification is #2. I understand that for many people, it is probably reversed.

      I definitely understand that there is a difficulty with how to present it. I myself would like all features available at once- but for others, that's too intimidating. So do you make everything available at once, and satisfy some people, or limit and introduce things gradually, to satisfy others? I think you've made a good choice, over all, but for users like me, that choice ends up being limiting. The whole "impossible to please everyone at once" thing.

      If I'm interested in using powerful or interesting features, is there a higher level than 4 that i should set my level to, to gain access to? Other details you might suggest to change to access other features?

      Thanks very much for your time, Tyler.

    37. Coffee.small

      Creator Tyler Renelle on March 14, 2013

      level requirement penalty? We introduce new features to users over time so they don't get confused by complexity right away. Multiple times I've shown people the app using my own account as a reference, and they say it's too confusing for a todo-list. I logout and create a new user, "ooohhh! so much simpler". It's very important it stay that way, though we're considering a different unlocking mechanic than levels.

      You're actually the first to complain about this. You can use the restore tool to set your level higher if it's bothering you: https://github.com/lefnire/habitrpg/wiki/Restoring-Your-Account

      Creator Leo Staley on March 14, 2013

      Is there a way i can bypass that level requirement penalty? like, is there a way i could pay for it or something? I'm gonna have to just give up on this and find something better if i can't start off doing this with my partner. Not sure why you'd want to penalize players for being new like that, but there's got to be a way around it, right?

      If you check out the "What this campaign funds" (http://goo.gl/qzzes), the app is #3. obviously very important, and it's making very good progress - but not the only thing

      Love the game. Simple but motivating. However, weren't we backing an "app" not a website?? The idea is fantastic, I just feel it would preform smoother and quicker in app form right? Wasn't that what we were backing??

    42. Missing_small

      Creator John Potts on March 7, 2013

      Quick question, when are we supposed to get our tokens for backing? I filled out the survey but I don't believe I received any.

      my best friend and I are really eager to try this out, but the biggest draw is the party system. I don't want to have to be penalized for not playing it alone for a few days, before i can play with my friend, so is there any way to unlock it from the beginning? my motivation for doing this comes almost wholly from the teamwork/competition with my friend...

      Hey, I recently have been quite sick with the flu meaning that I haven't been able to finish many of my daily tasks. I was wondering if in the future you could organise an update for a sick option. Maybe meaning that health lost is halved? I just dont think its fair that my character should die when I cant get out of bed :/

      Im not sure how to use trello, so maybe someone else could suggest it up there?

      Shameless plug for a friend who's about to start a Kickstarter campaign. He's creating a remote vehicle diagnostics service for sending engine info to your smartphone app. Deets at www.carcarecheck.com, fun ad video at http://goo.gl/jFtVc :) Hopefully any car owners amongst us can share some love with him!
