Hi, question, I completed the Whispers storyline, but the shop is not showing up for me. Are there some other requirements to be able to see the shop?

You need to first have the right creature to use the cookie on.
Copy+pasted from my items list, here's all the cookies and white creatures they can be used on
Image Chupacabra Cookie- Can be used on a Chupacabra egg to turn it into a Chupareno egg

Image Elephant Snail Cookie- Can be used on an Elephant Snail egg to turn it into a Mammoth Snail egg

Image Nulorn Cookie- Can be used on a (stream) Nulorn egg to turn it into a Tundra Nulorn

Image Latifra Beast Cookie- Can be used on an adult Latifra Beast to turn it white. The white colour is not passed on through breeding.

Image Carrot Cookie- Can be used on a Kitsune or Arkenian Kitsune egg to transform it into a Rabbitsune. Four colour variants are possible, based on the regular, Arkenian, Fire and Ice kitsunes. Out comes are random. Can be obtained randomly when breeding Kitsunes or Arkenian Kitsunes together.

Image Koi Cookie- Can be used to turn a regular stream Koi egg into a Glacial Koi egg. Can be obtained randomly when breeding Koi together.

Image Puvia Cookie- Can be used to turn a regular Puvia egg into an Aurora Puvia egg. Can be obtained randomly when breeding Puvia together.

That's cause the Black Market hasn't shown up yet. It comes and goes (he used to arrive on the full moon but methinks that changed).

What's the size limit for images in signatures? I looked through some stuff but didn't seem to find information about image sizes or maybe I just didn't look hard enough. :orly: Just the 400 character limit on the signature settings page.

Like, the pixel size?
I think it's about 300pixels for the height. I know that's the size used in those signature sets for the images on the sides, any taller than that and things start to get cut off.

Yes, the pixel size is what I meant - thank you for the reply, I'll try to keep that in mind. ^_^

Are there any Magistream Discord servers? I would love to join--I love getting to know new people through Discord. Also, I recently returned to the site after 6 years of absence, and I would love a place where I could more easily get help getting back on my feet. Thanks! <3

Trading:

What is trading?
Trading allows you to give or receive creatures and gold from other players.

How do I trade?
Here's a quick guide how to operate the trade system:
1. Find the user you want to trade with. Find a post of theirs, and click Trades under their avatar. Alternately, go to your trade panel and enter the username of the person you want to trade within the box.
2. Click the creatures you want to send to that person. That will make the fade out a bit. Enter the gold amount you want to trade to the other user in the box provided. Do not use a dot or comma to separate digits (i.e. if you want to trade a thousand gold, write it '1000', not '1,000'.)
3. Click 'Save Changes'. The trade should now show the creatures/gold added to the trade.
4. Enter your account password in the box and click 'Confirm Offer'.
5. You will now have to wait until the other side adds their side of the deal and confirms the offer.
6. Once the offer has been confirmed by the other side, enter your account password again and click 'Confirm Offer'. The trade will now be concluded.

Can every creature be traded?
Unfrozen eggs cannot be traded to prevent people from exceeding the egg limit. Allies cannot be traded either, since those are considered friends, not pets.

What do the different messages in the trade panel mean?
A trade will tell you who started it and who it is currently waiting for. If the trade says 'from you to _____', then you created the trade. If it says 'from _____ to you', it was created by the other side.
If the trade is 'initiated', the one who created it hasn't entered their password yet.
If the trade is 'waiting for response', the creator entered their password and is waiting for the recipient to do so.
If the trade is 'waiting for confirmation', the creator needs to put in his password again to finish the trade.

So...how does one go about accepting an offer? Someone wants to gift me some gold, it's a one-way thing. They don't want anything in return. Nice, right? I think so. Anyway, I don't know how to get this thing going. How do I accept it? Okay, graciously, of course, but HOW do I get it into my gold account? That's my question. Thanks! :D

All you do is confirm the trade so they can finish it to send the gold - no need to add anything on your end. :t-:)
