This is causing me a great deal of frustration. It looks like people can't respond to you and when you try and answer you get a message that they are offline, when they arn't. This is terrible!!

It is making my testing most anoying. I hope they get it fixed soon as I am getting ready to quit until they improve it. :roll:

What makes it even more annoying is that they said this problem would be fixed in Live 8....

It seems to be even worse than in Live 7.

1 You can see players who went online before you, so can contact them via buddy or neighbour chat or pm, but they can only reply by KI mail.

2 Players who log on after you don't register in neighbour or buddy lists or in the big KI, so when they pm you, you can only reply by KI mail.

3 If you log out then back in so that you can see later arrivals in the lists and pm them, they are back to point 1.

And neighbours/buddies who start on the lists and are in the same age, can disappear from them when they link to another age. This happened to three of us yesterday evening (UK time) testing in D'Lanor's Teledahn. When he linked to the Spyroom, he vanished from all of Ivy's and Dot:'s lists, though he was on them before.

This evening I had messages from both Mari and SuperGram and couldn't reply to either one. There was not one person showing on my Buddies or Neighbors list, and there hasn't been all evening. I tried using /reply and get the message that the person is offline. Bet they get a lot of tickets on this one!

To reply to someone that you show offline, create a text entry in your KI with your message and send it to the avatar... Their KI will blink - and if they look in their inbox, they will be able to read your reply.

Same here I couldn't reply either. I did send Mari a KI mail but she was offline by then. There was also a buddy message from someone....if I remember correctly it was JeffreyLewis but I could'nt answer him either. This KI problem is making it real difficult to test with others......

The tiny little postmen and women who work inside our KI's are on vacation, and hopefully will be back soon.

Maybe if we gave them a raise they would come back sooner.

in all seriousness, I ticketed this right away and Support said they were working hard on it, which is a good thing as it seriously impacts our ability to function as an integrated testing team. :) kinda lonely too :)

Perhapse it's not being fixed because we're getting a new Ki design soon!?

*lives in hope* :)

If we are , i'd still like to be able to talk to people until it arrives! :P

If we aren't then I think this is a serious problem that needs adressing before a push to Live! ;)

I also ticketed this problem. The word back is that a fix is in the next build. :)

I sure hope the fix works well; this problem is one of the most frustrating I have dealt with yet.

yeah i heard about it too from someone in cavern. I think the rumor started when someone in the Live forums said "maybe they will redesign the Ki during the break" i don't remember who it was or what forum but that is where it started.

Edit: you know the old Telephone game? "I wish they would redesign the Ki"..."maybe they will redesign the ki"...."they are going to redesign the ki"..."we're getting a new Ki"....

There is an alternative for working IN the same age, the voice chat. I checked with support and voice chat is enabled and active and they asked that we do test it, i am almost always hesitant to use it when most people do not have it, but when testing in the same area, it woudl work to communicate, however not across ages or for buddies or neighbors ...

In the same age the KI chat is not broken.
