About Riari

  1. Bots emailing me

    Ah, yeah, I had the same thing. They seem to gather up usernames on the forum and send mass PMs. I just left the conversation and ignored it when I got one - I don't think it's anything to worry about.
  2. Bots emailing me

    Emailing? I don't see how that's possible as a result of playing B&S since your email address isn't disclosed anywhere. Or are you talking about IG mail?
  3. Character Name Check?

    It's not. If you just followed the link without entering a valid character name, it will tell you the service is unavailable, but it's not. Proof: http://na-bns.ncsoft.com/ingame/bs/character/profile?c=Zoristaziel
  4. Character Name Check?

    One way of checking is to use the character info web URL, i.e. for NA use http://na-bns.ncsoft.com/ingame/bs/character/profile?c=[name] (for EU, change na-bns to eu-bns). If the character name is available, you'll be redirected to an error page stating "This service is temporarily unavailable."
  5. The Yun thread

    I tried making a Yun for the first time last night. I was always put off them for some reason but I've changed my mind :)
  6. Character beauty contest for fun

    Yes, but that's only basic and doesn't upload the screenshot anywhere. ShareX supports automatic uploading to imgur, dropbox, etc and throws a link in your clipboard. You can take a screenshot and paste a link to it in a matter of seconds, so it's way more convenient IMO. It has lots of other features too, but that's the thing I use it for mostly.
  7. Character beauty contest for fun

    You pasted a local filepath - that's not gonna work. Try uploading the screenshot to http://imgur.com/ (Also, https://getsharex.com/ is great for quickly taking screenshots, especially if you play the game in a maximised window)
  8. Good work, but yeah, out of 24 posts in this thread (including this one), 18 of them are yours. That's a bit silly :P Have you tried sharing it on the bladeandsouldojo.com forums or somewhere like that? They might be a bit more receptive.
  9. Can't communicate with a friend?

    Are you 100% sure she's online still? Sometimes the friend list gets stuck and will still display someone as online in a specific zone for a while after they've logged. Restarting the client usually clears it up.
  10. Transparent marketplace

    Seems to be anything that uses the embedded web rendering (I think the game uses http://www.awesomium.com/) Usually when it happens to me, it only affects certain things (like the marketplace OR character info, usually not both) and relogging fixes it. Could be that the domains involved are blocked on your work's network for some reason. Do character profiles load in a browser for you, e.g. http://na-bns.ncsoft.com/ingame/bs/character/profile?c=Riari+Saelihn?
  11. That's awesome, I like your style. Would you paint my Gon? I don't have any screenshots at hand atm other than her char info portrait (http://na-bns.ncsoft.com/ingame/bs/character/profile?c=Zoristaziel) but I can share some when I get home from work in about 8 hours. Any pretty things in the store you have your eye on? :P
  12. whiners on the Forums

    I think OP is referring to whiners who whine about the game, not about whiners in general. But yes, whining about whiners who whine about the game is still silly. So is whining about whiners whining about whiners whining about the game. Whineception.
  13. In that position I think I would go with the AMD card. Unless "one day" is so far away that you might have upgraded again by then :P
  14. I think it comes down to this: if you want a card that can push slightly higher framerates, get the 980, but if you play anything that's very memory-intensive you might find the R9 390 more useful. 4GB is pretty standard nowadays, but some games can exceed that, especially where graphics mods are involved and/or if you play above 1080p.
