The message is encoded (using HTML encoding) into
A thin sandy path follows the edge of the cliff overlooking a shallow bay with water as smooth as glass & so clear you can see the bottom. The tiny cottage at the path's end is weathered from years of sea spray but the smoke emanating from the chimney is inviting. Stepping through the door it's warm with a small fire over which cooks a pot of stew & the table holds a fresh loaf of bread, a small lamp & a book inviting me to sit, read, relax & contemplate the days ahead. Home ♥️ ~peg

This turns out to be 510 characters.

Personally, I believe the decoded character length should be used, not the encoded one (as the encoded one doesn't mean anything to people, so then it also doesn't make sense to say the max length is 500 characters).

I think ♥️ is 1 character. In things such as SMS, it is often viewed as 2 because it's not counting characters but bytes needed to encode the character.

It does make more sense to have the mega last. It's also not consistent, it seems like it's random whether or not a mega is in front of the non-mega version.
The same goes for event pokemon, it would make more sense to have them after the original as well.

seems like it could be sorted alphabetically to get a consistent ordering that makes sense, maybe a few manual adjustments might be necessary, not 100% sure.

After you level up your Gardener Level, it usually goes back to 0 / xxxx so you need to gain xxxx to level up again.
Recently I leveled up from 64 to 65, but the experience was not set back to 0, so it only took me a few days to reach level 66 as I only needed around a thousand 's instead of 36000.

I do not have proof of it happening, but maybe someone else has experienced this too?

I would argue it is a bug on PH's side, this is unintended behaviour and should not happen.
It is not a browser issue, it was designed like this. It is the job of the web developer to make sure it doesn't happen.

There are several ways to get the intended behaviour listed here. Riako has used these methods in other parts of the site, most likely for the same reasons.

This happens when you click "Show more" twice before the feeds from the first click is loaded.

A fix would be to disable the "Show more" button and re-enable it when the new feeds are loaded.

The "Show more" button at the notifications page is skipping 1 feed every time that it is clicked.

This can be easily verified on a PC using the developer console (press F12 to open).
𝚕𝚊𝚜𝚝𝙵𝚎𝚎𝚍𝙸𝙳 is the ID of the feed at the bottom of the page, if you type this in the console, you'll see the ID.
As an example:

If you write 𝚜𝚑𝚘𝚠𝙲𝚘𝚖𝚖𝚎𝚗𝚝𝚜(𝟸𝟿𝟽𝟷𝟷𝟸𝟷) , you'll see that this is not actually the last feed, but the one just before it.

If you click "Show more", you'll see the first new feed is older than the feed with ID 𝟸𝟿𝟽𝟷𝟷𝟸𝟷 , meaning that the feed with ID 𝟸𝟿𝟽𝟷𝟷𝟸𝟷 is actually missing.
This happens every time you click "Show more", where 𝚕𝚊𝚜𝚝𝙵𝚎𝚎𝚍𝙸𝙳 points to the feed after the actual last feed.

To fix this, feeds older than and including 𝚕𝚊𝚜𝚝𝙵𝚎𝚎𝚍𝙸𝙳 needs to be returned, currently it's only returning feeds older than 𝚕𝚊𝚜𝚝𝙵𝚎𝚎𝚍𝙸𝙳 .

I've reported this directly to Riako because it was possible to send any plushie that is usually not obtainable for free and it was quite easy to do.
This is now fixed :)

I believe what's happening is that you removed a task, for example the left upper task, and then left that tab open.
Then on another tab you do your stuff, and after a while you check the Bulletin Board and see that the left upper task has a white powder.
If you then go back to the first tab that you left open and refresh that to see the new tasks, it will remove the left upper task again, even though you did not want to do this.

This is one option of how it could've gone, but it does the same if you'd use the "go back" button, I've had this happen to me often where I accidentally removed all tasks again because I spammed the go back button.

When releasing a Pokemon, the warning text you get is outdated, saying you can't get the released Pokemon back. This is not the case anymore with the introduction of the recovery tool.

At the item shop:
"Our daily offers contain greatly reduced items due to overproduction. Be fast enough to claim them!"

Isn't it supposed to be "greatly reduced prices"? Not sure about it though, but figured I'd put it here :)

The first source was from when dark mode was first launched.

From the second source (the updated one):

QuoteSince most images remain unchanged in dark mode, modifying the text could lead to visibility issues

Notice the most there.

QuoteA heuristic based image classification has been implemented to apply filters to certain images

So this means the app is in fact classifying the "dark gem" image as an image that needs to be filtered, in this case inverted.

Dark mode doesn't just make everything darker, it has to make things that were dark bright so that the user can see it, how it does this is up to the developer of the app.
I believe since the dark gem image is fairly dark, the app decided to invert it.

I did a quick check and based on this source, the night / dark mode does affect images.
This isn't a PH bug, that's for sure :)

The source isn't from the official website, but it was linked from developer.samsung.com, so I'm going to trust the information on that page is correct, because I found other sources where it said it doesn't affect images.

Multiplayer games

Multiplayer games using the Chatbot will always be turn based games.
The current games are:
- Battleship
(this list will grow)

To be able to invite others, or to be invited, you need to join the multiplayer game first.

Join all multiplayer games.

/join game
Join only for game

Exit all multiplayer games, you won't receive any invites anymore.

/exit game
Exit only for game

Future commands
/invite username game
Invite username to a game of game.

/cancel username
Cancel the invite sent to username.

/accept username
Accept the invite received from username
(this is currently implemented only for battleship, making them here will make sure they work for any future multiplayer game)

/reject username
Reject the invite received from username.
(this is currently implemented only for battleship, making them here will make sure they work for any future multiplayer game)

Quote from Xeraowhy was it made to begin with?

I didn't make it, but I was the one who posted all possible Hangman words 2-3 years ago. I did have my own "helper" even more powerful than the current one to find all the words, but I never thought about making the helper itself public.

Quote from XeraoIt's like giving people something to help them out with then be like "I don't like how it's being used so I'll just remove it."

Yes and no, the goal of this suggestion is to get rid of the unofficial helper. What comes in it place has to be discussed, and my suggestion is just one suggestion that could replace it. Other suggestions has been made in the discussion, such as having the helper on the Hangman page itself, which you can only use after clicking a button, where the usage of it lowers your reward.

Quote from XeraoIf Riako didn't make it have one when he first made it then I'm sure there's a reason why he didn't put a fee for the hangman.

If you design a game you never get it 100% right from the first time. There are so many things to take into consideration that you easily miss something. It's not because it has been like this for 7 years that it is actually the best option.

I'm not entirely sure if I understand your suggestion. It sounds like you want to lower the Hangman rewards? I'm not sure why?

Actually I'm thinking of doing a full Economics Analysis on the Game Center as a whole, and see what & how things could be changed so that the general reward you get is similar to that of when you would be using the Hangman helper.

@juliewolffang64, I do not agree that you should be able to "just start a game for free" because then nobody would ever need the PD to GC conversion thing at the Lobby of the Game Center.
I think there should be a small fee (50 Game Chips or so) to start a game of Hangman, just so that when you do lose all your GC, you need to buy some more with PD, just as it would be in a real Game Center.
This is entirely separate from the main suggestion though.

A - The idea is that you can keep your streak going using a hint, so that you do get more Game Chips than if you'd have to start over from 0, even if the hint itself costs 300 Game Chips.

Quote from NIGHT_SLINGERwe only know we're getting Game Chips because of the Hangman Helper

This should be against the rules. Without the Hangman Helper, you would have a lot of trouble keeping a long streak, and so you wouldn't get as much game chips from it. So the whole idea of this suggestion is to make it easier to reach long chains by investing a small amount of game chips so that you gain more than you invested in the first place. (300 Game Chips is a small amount compared to 2500 that you can win.)

Quote from juliewolffang64To me, I would think that the hints feature might defeat the purpose of both the helper itself and an incentive to try and figure the puzzle out on your own

Since you'd only be able to get 1 hint every round, it's not actually possible to only use hints to get the word. You can possibly buy multiple extra lives, but why would you buy many (and lose Game Chips) if you could do it without. I think this does actually incentivise you to play the game more serious so that you do not have to spend Game Chips on hints / extra lives.

Quote from juliewolffang64there's not much of a cost to start a game.

Not entirely sure what you mean with this or what the cost of starting a game has to do with this.

@C0FFee I think you're misunderstanding the suggestion somewhat. The original suggestion says that you can buy an extra life before you run out of lives, not after you get a word wrong.
Also the hint will give a correct letter you did not already have, not a textual hint. Although this wouldn't be that difficult to do as well, it could say if it's:
- a Pokemon from region X (X can be any of the official regions or Emera)
- a Pokemon battle move
- an item
- a PH feature

I'm not fully understanding how your suggestion would work. Do you mean that you buy an extra life that will last for 100 rounds? so for each of the words you have an extra life? "Same idea with hints" -> Do you mean here that you start each round with a hint about the word for 100 rounds?
If I think what it is you're suggesting, I do like the idea, but I disagree with the price because this seems very cheap (because you basically get 100 extra lives and 100 hints for those prices)

Feature: PH Community Map

The PH Community Map is a way to visualize connections between users. The PH Map can be found here.
It starts of with our Admin Riako which has connections to his staff.

You can click a bubble to look who is connected to that user.
If you click the username it'll go to the user profile of that user.

Links are two sided, if one person is linked to another, but not vice versa, then the link will be half red, half black. The red side is the user who linked to the other person. A full red line means both users have linked to each other.

Chatot the Chatbot helps you add yourself & your friends to the map using simple commands.
Only the first 5 links are free! Each link after that costs 1000 pd.

/link username
where username is the username of your friend you want to link to.

/unlink username
where username is the username of your friend you want to unlink.

A list of all the users you have linked to + a list of all users who have linked to you.

Chatot gives you the link to the PH Community Map: PH Community Map is here!

Future Commands
/link username1 username2 ... usernameN
Same as /link username1 but you can add multiple users, separated by a space.
