Subject: Small additions
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We're pleased to announce some small new releases to Achaea, the details of
which are as follows:

* TELLS history has been updated, storing your sent and received tells even
through multiple sessions. No longer will they be removed when you log out or
get otherwise disconnected.

* Our quest system now includes the quests in Tir Murann, Qurnok, Moghedu,
Eastern Shore, Shala'jen, Nimick, New Hope, Adryn Keep, the Dakhota Hills, and
Azdun!

Enjoy!

Penned by My hand on the 11th of Scarlatan, in the year 644 AF.
I was very pleased to see that tell history now goes through logging out and back in. It's been a very frustrating problems for years, when you d/c or something and don't know when people have sent you tells, or when you have to QQ/etc and lose your tell list.

My only problem with the new incarnation is that it's limited to 25 tells, and now tells you send as well as receive are included, so technically the history got shortened. I'd rather it be raised to 40 to make it hold the same length of conversation as before.

    There's actually 50, 25 incoming and 25 outgoing.

    This isn't conclusive with my research. Whenever I do TELLS I get 25 max. It's been at 25 for the last hour I've been online while I've sent and received numerous tells.

    Explain?

    Oops, my falt. I was playing with the numbers to make sure we could adjust it painlessly and never flicked it back up to the higher values. Fixed now.

    Seems to go all the way to 50 now.

    Didn't take me long to find out when I do things like:

    45) You told Achilles: Decap those corpses.
    46) You told Achilles: Decap those corpses.
    47) You told Achilles: Decap those corpses.
    48) You told Achilles: Decap those corpses.
    49) You told Achilles: Decap those corpses.
    50) You told Achilles: Decap those corpses.


    Thanks for the fix!

    Seems like it would be useful, with the new size of the list, if it either started at the end or we could do something like TELLS LAST and have it just give us the last page or last ten or whatever. At least for me, I mostly use it to look at the last 2-3 tells, so seeing just the last few with the full list optional would be more useful for me. Anyone else? :/

    Still, I actually agree with Santar for once. Having the list persist and seeing outgoing tells is great. It looks like it shows the full tell in the list now, instead of cutting off after 60? characters and you have to look at the tell specifically to see the full text, which is a nice thing to follow a conversation easier. Awesome.

    You can do TELLS REVERSE already, maybe that'll be what your after?

    There was TELLS FULL for that already.
