The short version: Minor inconsistencies and issues with Nations logging can be reported here instead of opening a new topic, in order to keep the index cleaner for finding topics of interest. :-)

======
Hi, MaBi.

Been meaning to mention this for a while:

The log shows things like "('Great Lighthouse' effect: +1 [book])", which makes it very clear why a player is getting an extra book; however, for the Sistine Chapel, the log shows only "(+3 [books])", which feels incomplete to me, by comparison.

Would you be willing to adjust the logging so that players see "('Sistine Chapel' effect: +3 [books])"?

Thanks very much!

Oh yes, I have now fixed this, thanks!
I have been fixing these little logging 'bugs' and inconsistencies whenever I notice them while playing (for example, fixing this I noticed that 'Great Lightouse' effect didn't have the card image, so I added that too). So if you see others just let me know.

Oh, wow, and here I didn't even notice that the card images were there for the wonder effects. :-p

Rather than starting a new topic for each logging issue, would it be better if I just continued reporting them in this topic? (I'll rename it, if so.)

On this point, I've noticed that when the event card "Californian Gold Rush" appears in the log, the word "Gold" is replaced by the resource icon; I don't think this should happen for this event because it's just the event name and not the resource, in this case. (Most recently noticed in game 64305—and this is probably the game with Machiavelli that I confused with my other false-alarm bug report. :-p )

Thank you!

Another minor thing I've been meaning to report are incomplete HTML character entities:
1) At the bottom of each Nations page, you list the credits of those involved: in the last name, the ö character is missing the ;.

2) Similarly, the ; is missing in the   character whenever Revolt is reported in the log.

Yes, makes sense.

Ouch... I already had this issue with the 'Gold Mine', I will see what I can do.

Strange, I never noticed because in my browser it was displayed correctly even without the ';'.

Ok, fixed both of these, thank you!

Okay, cool. I renamed the topic as you see; would you want to pin the topic to the index so that people can see it more easily if they need to report a minor issue?

MaBi wrote:

Yes, it depends on the browser. I noticed the problem on Safari on my old iOS4 device; but when I use IE11 at work, the character displays correctly (the browser compensates, I guess).

Anyway, here's another small issue, not with logging, but still minor:
The board for Persia shows a visual artifact from the physical board which indicates starting resources: I can still see a printed '5' underneath the digital number showing the number of workers—it's slight but, depending on the digital number, the physical number makes the digital number harder to read. Please see game 64849 for an example. (I hope this description is clear; I couldn't quite figure out the best way to describe the issue. :-)

Well... I don't know how to do that, there should be an icon somewhere but I can't see it, even logging as administrator.

Yes, all the physical boards have the starting resources printed on them and I had to remove those fixed numbers to display the 'current' values. I must have missed that last one on Persia board, I will fix it, thank you!

Here is a minor improvement I would like to see. Can you time stamp the start of the game in the log and time stamp the end?

It would be easy but that info is already in the database, though I admit it's not visible in the game manager but only in your 'game history', so only after the game is finished. So yes, maybe the easiest thing to do is adding a timestamp in the log.

Ah, okay. I figured it would be an option, given the legend of icons that appears at the bottom of the game's forum page.

Anyway, in game 64027 (just finished), the Anarchism event had the following: remove pc@Florence Nightingale@
...and the same for another advisor. Hope this helps!

The log did not report that I removed Qin Shi Huang after taking a turmoil card. In particular, this was a turmoil card I was forced to take by another player's American Democratic Republicans action.

In game 64307 which finished recently, the card image for Australia doesn't appear in the log for the March to Moscow event. (The image appears normally for the entry where the card was first bought in the prior round, however.)

In game 65338, recently finished, I lost Hypatia because of discarding Turmoil at the end of the last round, but there was no "removed Hypatia" statement in the log.
