Although the message in Local chat seems to be missing a little somethin': "O! There's a Qurazy on this street for you!" (Word 'Quoin'—which is a graphic in the game window—doesn't show up in local chat.)
And I so wish they were Qrazy Qoins without the "u." But that's just world-class nit-pickery.
Count me among those who miss the over-excited OMG! I loved it almost as much as the OMG! OMG! OMG! that I used to see during those last five seconds of learning a skill. Not that I ever hunched at the computer screen, finger hovering anxiously over the mouse, waiting to start the next skill or anything.
I haven't seen it at the top yet and already I don't want to...simply cos I liked it at the bottom..and I wondered where mg went to and a silly O was yakkin at me..bring back OMG.. and put it back to the bottom..lol :D
hehe I've always wanted to moan and never had a reason ..so there you have it.!!! :)...ahhhh that feels good!! lol!!!
My two currants, since it's stated to be still in tinkering stage -- I was incredibly happy when it started showing up at the bottom, since that's where my glitch is and that's where my EYES are. I don't really LOOK at the top.
Now that it's at the top, and ridiculously large, I don't really like it. I mean, it's better than just being in chat where I only notice it four streets later if I'm lucky, but. It's off balance, it overlaps things and looks sloppy, and that's not where my eyes are.
I do kinda like the idea of the old, bottom of screen temporary alert, and then just the symbol itself, sized the same as, say, the teleportation cooldown, in that same screen area, until we pick it up.
But that's because I'm quite capable of forgetting that I was told it was there about three seconds later. >_>
I liked it at the bottom better, for pretty much all the same reasons mentioned above. It overlaps other icons at the top, it takes up more screen space while still managing to be less visible, my eyes tend to look at the bottom, where my avatar is. At the bottom, it was very noticeable and out of the way.
I have no strong feelings about the OMG issue either way.
I think the most jarring thing, other than its disproportionate size and the fact that it seems to be the only notification that appears up top, is that it disappears suddenly rather than fading. So many other notifications and displays have a lovely fade, why not this one?
(Because my eye is drawn to a sudden change at the top of my screen, but the change is that something is gone, so I'm looking around for something that isn't there, and then jujus steal my rubies while I'm staring off into space.)
I love the idea of a notification that stays until you collect the QQ. If I'm busy doing other things on the street, I'll often forget whether I've found it yet or not until I stumble over it. This is especially true in places like Balzare/Roobrik where I'm zipping around the street like an unhinged squirrel.
Any chance a little dot could show up on the map like Rube does now?
+1 for the dot on the map ;) That could work for now until this arrow pointer idea shows sometime. I'd even be ok with a black popup box in the bottom right like when your plants are grown(a popup that stayed until clicked) I run to the vendor/shrine and then run off many times and forget all about the quoin.
