Good Idea: Feeding stray kittens in the park.

They should allow wearables of red coats for meepits. Blum 3
That grinds my gears! The utter lack of red coats for Meepits!
Though really what annoys me is when I'm in mid thought and I forg-- HEY LOOK A DISTRACTION!

Bad Idea: Feeding stray kittens in the park... to a bear.

Coming from a long experience of malling with my old mall;

When people only have one or two pages of stock - half of it non-category items - but the branch manager doesn't seem to notice...after months sometimes.

When the branch manager lets someone slide multiple times on their upgrades, low stock or being away for a long period of time without notifying anyone. There's rules for these things!

When the training/luck/maps has half a page of stock. Really? COME ON! There can be at least a full page of stock or even two if you tried. And when the training and maps shop has NO MAPS? Do you see a problem there? I understand maps can be expensive, and you may have to build up how many map pieces you have, but there are cheap ones to start with. The worst part is when the branch manager has no problem with it.

When someone joins the last open spot because the one they want is already filled. They don't give any effort in to stocking or upgrading because it's "not the category they want", or, "I'll do better when I get to switch to the category I want". No. Don't join a mall then. Go find another one or wait on the waiting list.

When the branch manager either doesn't even have a spot in the mall/doesn't run a shop anymore, is never around or keeps giving excuses why they can't update the mall info page...but takes over yet another mall page. If you don't have enough time to update things, it's best to let someone take over until things are worked out about time - or giving up management duty for good.

Sorry, had to rant. Kiss 2

Jelly Neo's Item DB.... Books Read Checklist tool...
Pets who have read over 2000 books can't submit to the checklist tool, you get:
Request Entity Too Large
The requested resource
/books/show_books.php
does not allow request data with POST requests, or the amount of data provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit.

Dave at Jellyneo blames TNT.
I think that Jellyneo doesn't have their php.ini set to allow enough post data, though I'm quite sure their host (Dreamhost) both allows that much data as well as user custom php.ini's (I read their support forums)... Grr.

Getting frozen at Christmas and not even knowing why.
Yup I was frozen this morning, I'm guessing I got hacked.

The reason I suspect this is because I looked in my real life email this morning and discovered I created a Monkey Quest Account.
What the .... is Monkey Quest?
I'm betting I won't get it back til after New Year's with my bank account empty. *sighs*
All because I got a new computer and hadn't set up "no scripting" on firefox. And to top it all off my new computer died, taking my ability to play SWTOR with it.
So what grinds my gears you ask?
The holidays with nothing to play Sad

Hmm what grinds my gears...
People not working together in your mall to make sure everyones getting good hits.They think that malling requires zilch effort.Oh and the random emails from people who tell me my shop prices are too high and start raging at me and of course,the people who try and get you into their mall.

People who don't have a 'want' price for their items, or say 'send offers' and leave it at that.

And extra annoying is when you offer a price, they just say 'no', and give nothing else to go on.

I think it stems from the fact that people have NO idea what something should be worth, and only want to sell if someone offers enough 0s to make them go AHHH!

So true, so true. I have spent hours haggling on items for my gallery with people like this. They really grind my gears too! If I can find what I want elsewhere, I will not deal with this type of seller. If you want the sale, decide what you want!

Another thing that grinds my gears are people who feel the need to talk crap about your mall on the boards, and then feeling the need to neomail you to bring you into the discussion.

...Oh yeah...can't forget about finding that great deal on SSW just to find yourself in the shop of a frozen account. Does TNT really need to leave the item in SSW if you can't buy from the shop?!
