Then I suppose that the vote will only count active players as well (both as options for new admin and voters), or automatically close after a certain amount of time. Probably only the former, since an automatically-triggered “admin inactivity” poll could happen and resolve without warning.

Ask: I see you've been getting a lot of "Our server head admin left" questions. Maybe add a way to have people do it themselves? A vote, perhaps.
That’s not a bad idea, actually. The only problem I can see is that it may not be that hard to abuse the system; one person can make a ton of extra accounts to become the majority vote for themselves, or something. Then again, when a vote is called, we can only have it available to accounts that were in the session at the time. However, there’s also the fact that sometimes, an admin will simply become inactive without leaving the session or anything. Even if we have it auto-detect an inactive admin and start a vote that way, a player could make a ton of accounts in preparation for the vote so that they exist when it begins. So perhaps the vote only counts players above a certain echeladder rung… say, 10% of the player with the highest rung in the session or something, or a minimum of 20? Yeah, we might be able to make this work!

Ask: Is it possible to go negative in grist with anything other than artifact? Because my Opal, Polychromite, Rainbow, and Uranium are all in the negative. my game name is budouArms if it helps.
This… should not be. I went ahead and negated your negative grists (essentially removing the minus signs from them); do you remember what exactly you were doing that might have caused this? I know I fixed a similar problem recently where attempting to make an item that was too big for your current Fetch Modus’s strength would force the item to storage, but charge you double the grist regardless of whether you could pay it or not. Perhaps this is related to that?
EDIT: Oh, I see you have a Massive Glitched Gate in storage, which has those exact grists as costs! So I think that was indeed the problem. Well, either way, it should be fixed.

Ask: can you please assign aceExstinguisher as head admin on the [Insert Session Name] session? The last admin nuked their account

Text Post: Dungeon bug-squashing
We just uploaded what we hope to be a fix for several annoying dungeon bugs:
- Those weird “diagonal” paths should now properly render as a transportalizer and not prevent movement along actual paths
- Dungeons should have a much, much lower chance of failing to spawn a boss/stairs, and if it does, there will be a note definitively saying that it did (only applies to dungeons generated after this post was made)
- Dungeon guardians will only appear for the first player to enter a specific dungeon, so no more gristless guardians guarding friends’ dungeons
- If you somehow wind up in a totally blank dungeon with no means of movement or escape, you are given the option to leave immediately. We’re still working on figuring out why this happens, but at least in this case you won’t be stuck.
- Not a dungeon bug, but items with the LUCK property will no longer trigger the “property not recognized” message on inventory/portfolio
Note that the “emergency escape” option will work in any situation, so if the link does not visually display, you can still enter it in manually like so: http://www.theoverseerproject.com/dungeons.php?emergency=escape
EDIT: Oh, and we are aware of the bug where the Lich Queen’s minions lack grist types and drop blank grists. We’ll work on that one fairly soon.
EDIT2: …and it turned out to be such a simple fix that I went ahead and nerfed a certain other boss’s summoning ability a tad while I was at it!

Ask: I had my session do a test run of the black king. We actually almost won - except right now we're stuck with him at 1%, unable to damage me or the one person left standing with me (2 of our 7 players) and our other 2 original players can't get back in, with the one who wasn't there originally being able to sort of bug in in a wierd normal style battle. In short, this is stupid. I've expended far more than I planned to on a run of a boss that I now see is horribly glitchy, and I was hoping 4help.
I talked to the Overseer about it, and he’ll certainly look into it. You essentially beat him, so I went ahead and marked your session as having done so. There aren’t any other rewards at the moment, unfortunately, but you guys have officially beaten SBURB, congrats! :D
Also, let me know the usernames of any of your players who are stuck and I’ll do my best to unstick them posthaste.

Normally, every imp spawned in a dungeon has a 1% chance of having a strife card. With your luck stat maxed out, that chance increases to 5%. You can tell if an imp has a strife card by its description; look for the statement “It also appears to be wielding X”, where X is the weapon name. Its power level will be increased by the power of the weapon as well. Good luck!

Ask: Could you make thoughtlessRenegade (from "Version Zeta" session) the head admin? Either we didn't have a head admin (it's an OLD session) or he simply hasn't played since the update.
Wow, that must be one old session if you didn’t have a head admin! Anyway, I’ve done as you requested!

If you got it from a gate 1 dungeon fighting imps, then yes. Some of them wield weapons and drop their strife cards when defeated. If not, then no and it’d be great if you told me how you managed to obtain another one :P

Ask: This is internalwrath from the session Boop. While I was dungeon diving, I found a Fetch Modus upgrade but I can't pick it up because my Fetch Modus is too small. This just seems kind of like a contradiction, considering I can't really upgrade without picking it up.
You probably encountered one of the higher level upgrades. They were meant to be found/used in order, so each upgrade has the maximum size the previous tier of upgrade will allow. The first tier is Huge Items, so be on the lookout for that. If you’re still in that dungeon, you may want to make yourself a Captcharoid Camera so you can snap a ghost image and save the code for when you’ve used the other upgrades.
