bug: assoc chat name disappears

Postby Kindi » Thu Jul 29, 2010 8:10 pm

sometimes your name disappears on 'assoc' list when logged in to assoc chat. this happens when you log on another char and log in to the same assoc chat, then log the second char off, leaving the first char still on but the name blank as if no one was on

i dont think this is so much a bug, as assoc chat wasnt designed for multiple char logins :) when you log in a new character and sign into chat over another, it replaces the old character with your current character's name, yet because it was designed for one character to be logged in at once, it didnt automatically log the other character out of chat... so when the second character logs out, it does like its supposed to and removes the characters name from the assoc list, yet the old character is still "logged in" to the chat, without the assoc list code recognizing that there is anyone logged in..

simple solutions to this include, just relog the character your planning on playing on... OR dont autologin to assoc chat via a trigger, then your second character wont log in over your old one

or... fix the code. it's a bug because it doesn't take into account even the possibility of multiple assoc chat logins. it could block a second login, it could allow them and add more names, it could just keep track and only display one name no matter how many etc, but it just doesn't even know. so yes it's a bug.

OK, you want a professional opinion from someone who is in QA? Yes it is a bug. Will they fix it? Most likely not soon. The severity of the bug is low.

Customer Impact: Almost none
Frequency of Occurance: Not that often in a user's daily playtime
Workaround: Piece of cake

Hopefully it will get fixed when they can get around to the lower severity issues. It's kind of like would you want Area gods spending all their time fixing typos, or get new zones :)
