When you send an in-game PM, the buttons at the bottom include CANCEL.  This is not "cancel the send", it should read EXIT or some such.

When programing a clickie and you fail to provide a location (blush) you get a sentence with misspellings.  "whem with comma" should read "them with commas".

When you edit a top level forum message and are finished, the button should say "save" like on replies, not "edit topic" - which at that point you have already done, you just want to save your work.

For reference there is nothing we can do with the forum as it’s a standard package.

Sorry no screen shot.  I refer to the description of the 1000Wn armor item "Swift Lament", +1 defense.  It is the first and only piece of equipment a newbie can buy.

a) It claims to add to some abilities - briskness and/or speed, which it does not.  Suggest you delete this claim.

b) Newbies at this level will fall victim to the rule that armor can no more than double base defense -- i.e. it actually gives them nothing at the stage that they can buy it.  Each will be puzzled about what's going on, wasting energy on the issue.   Note they have 500 defense from GWI housing, but less than 1 base, and get nothing.   I suggest adding a warning about this effect.  "Note: Equipment can no more than double your base stats."

c) I'm given to wonder if equipment shouldn't be stronger in effect, but this is not the place or time to bring it up, so I won't.  ;)

On gateway island, the description of the Grassan switches over suddenly to talking about Huvourers.  Say what?  Name changed? Also talks about throwing rocks and Grassan doesn't have a ranged attack.  Needs fixed.  {Later: description in the Armory is the same.}

When looking at other players' inventories, the item descriptions are on pop-ups that always goes DOWN.  When you get to the bottom half-dozen items, the popup is chopped off so that you can't read it, because only the portion inside the scroll window is visible.

This could be fixed by having it pop UP if you're at the bottom part of the window, or by adding half-dozen blank lines at the bottom of what is being scrolled through.

When using silvertongue on a Mac (OS X Chrome), the letter "S" shows as a box, which usually indicates an unrecognized character.  Apparently this is not the case on a windows computer.

Regarding the menu strip along the bottom of the page, two things "bug" me.

1) Why does it suddenly pop up 3x size after you use the text box in the right panel to do a "give" operation?  Using it then is the last thing you want to do, but is the first thing you HAVE to do because it obscures the scene.

2) It would be so much more useful if on the first line it showed all the usable objects with pictures, a line feed, then everything else with pictures.

3) Not a bug - it would enhance the value of this menu if you could click on a non-usable item and trigger the "give to..." box.

An oddity using clickies -- if you type a password and hit "speak words", the password remains in memory.

If you type a password and hit "return", it works for one pass, but the password is NOT stored, and you must type it each time you visit.

This is a big problem if the code loops back after you make an entry -- it drops out instead of continuing to execute.

The Principles page refers to "Enthropy" with an H.  All the tokens refer to "Entropy" with no H, which is a real thing in english thermodynamics.

I always assumed this was a made-up word, or else Romanian, but now I think it's a typo.  Let's be consistent.  Probably other places....?

This tool description in Loreroot is all messed up.  Chopped phrasing, repeat, etc.  I don't know about other places that tool might be found.
