Lanzer's Journal
Otakon 2017
This year Otakon had moved to Washington DC. The new venue is spacious and cosplayers have plenty of places to hangout. Everything was wonderful, minus the scary sewer flooding that happened on Saturday night.

Finally back home and got to monitor the platinum currency again. There will be more adjustments needed but we should be able to stabilize marketplace prices and have a healthy economy in the long run.

The new servers are still being tested right now. Plenty of bugs to fix, but we're pretty close now. Also got to update the PNG libraries which should help with decreasing the file size for avatars across the site.

Glad to hear you guys are back. I hope you can look into the Angel Subscription glitch. Thank you as always for updating us.

Seems you had a good time! And I'm a bit surprised to see a lot of Pokemon cosplayers out there. I have long "retired" from playing the games after the end of Black/White 2, yet it's still popular! xd

Wow it must have been fun for you guys hahah... wish I could go but I'm all the way in Malaysia.

So far I think the platinum currency is helping quite a bit, in terms of making things much easier to purchase and much more accessible albeit there being certain vendors who still hike the prices up beyond the actual value of the items sold. Anyhow, we're really glad you and the team are working on stabilizing the economy again and wish you good luck! That goes without saying, you do take care of your health too.

Thank you Lanzer for all the things you've done for us up till now. smile

        `.I hope your time away was a decent bit of time off as well!

        Some R&R after all the hard work you've been putting in.

        Bless those Slowpokes and the Team Rocket though - seeing them in person personally would have made my whole trip.

        I can't help but wonder if the Wobbuffet was a part of their party or just someone at the right place at the right time?
        Imagining a lone Wobbuffet wandering around a convention is the best thing.

        Those photos have reminded me why I've always wanted to go to one of these things, damnit.

Can you seriously poke someone to take a look at what's going on with the Angel Subscription stuff please. Number one it was put out with no way to simply update our payment information unless we quit the subscription and signed up for it again, which I did when my new credit card came out. Number two, when I did subscribe again it gave me my stuff and my bonuses but then it immediately said I was unsubscribed to the service and said I'll lose all privileges on September 2nd when I never did unsubscribe to the service. Now I have to wait six days to see if it will renew or not. Because there's no buttons to upgrade my subscription or choose a lower level (not that I'd want to). This issue has been mentioned in the SF and the Bug Reports forum and some people who never unsubscribed like I did are getting this and have not received their items or their Cash despite being charged by the company running this. I was afraid there would be issues when this first came out and it looks like I was right. I really like Angel Subscriptions but I don't want to have to go through several months of trying to get it fixed right through the help center like the time AutoCash had problems with its page several years back.
