Nanvaent FAQ: Bugs
Please mail all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bugs are necessarily present in all constantly developing programs, and even Nanvaent is not exempt. If you find a bug, use the

In many cases you cannot do anything, things like this happen occasionally. If you really feel you deserve to get your stuff back then you should speak to a Lord about it. Creators are not allowed to give you equipment, so do not ask them.
Losing your equipment due to a game crash is an occupational
hazard and outside our ability to fix. Therefore you will not
get your lost XP or equipment back in those cases. It's considered
a good idea to type
This happens very often and nearly always it is the player's fault and not a bug. There are a few things you can do before you start shouting for help; this should save you looking stupid when you realise what you have done.
The classic mistake is when you have made an alias by mistake or
forgotten an old alias which conflicts with what you are trying to
do. So if you are typing
Nicknames can cause similar problems, see the next question.
Nanvaent is an ever changing world, things change from day to day, also many things behave in a random manner. So if a monster you kill often suddenly slaughters you don't start complaining about it as it may have been changed, or it may be different every day and you were just lucky on the previous occasions.
As a last resort report it as a bug, or talk to a creator to try
and resolve the problem.
There are two possible reasons for this. If the person you are talking about is a Creator they may be hidden. Creators have the ability to hide from players so they can concentrate on coding the game. They can still talk to you, but you cannot reply if you are not on their 'allow list'. See next question.
The second reason is that you have made a mistake while nicknaming
the person. You may have made a nickname called alex for someone
called alexander, then a new player called alex starts playing, and
when you try to talk to him Nanvaent thinks you are trying to talk to
alexander. Another common error is typing the wrong thing when you
create the nickname, for example, typing
So if Nanvaent tells you someone isnt logged on when you try to
talk to them, type
Whereas the immortals tend to hide from the players in order to concentrate on coding and maintenance, they may choose to put you on their so-called allow lists. In effect, this will mean that you will be able to see the creator in question and speak to them when other players can't.
Every creator has their own allow list, and it's useless to shout things like 'Is Corvin on? Why am I not on your allow list?!?!?' This is a privilege immortals grant to their personal friends and a deal of trust is involved. Don't make a fool of yourself demanding to be loved or trusted - it will not work.
