This is not a conventional set of cards. Instead this is where to track bugs and upcoming features in Multiverse.

If you want to report a bug or suggest a feature, click New card above!

You can use the colour/frame of the "card" to indicate what type of issue you're creating:

Please comment on suggestions if they matter to you. If you see a proposal that you like, add a comment saying you want it. Alex is far more likely to add a feature if lots of people want it!

The set creator would like to draw your attention to these comments:

On Version Control (reply):

Mmm. Yeah, this is a sensible topic to raise. Back when I was on a free database, I was confident I wouldn't have space for previous revisions. However now that I'm paying for the database, we've got a good amount of space, so storing previous revisions is a fairly plausible enhancement.

It wouldn't be insanely difficult, but it would be a moderate amount of work; however it's a very sensible thing to ask for. No promises, but I'll look into it further.

On Bugs importing from CSV (reply):

In theory I could directly import MSE files rather than making people have to export. I'm getting a bit more time in the evenings now than I was a couple of months ago so I could have a go at that myself. I've got a good sample MSE set I can be using.

On Card history (reply):

Mmm. Yeah. For a long time this was a feature which I knew would be nice but I was imagining would never happen, because the database space required is at least an order of magnitude greater than for Multiverse's current implementation. In particular, this would make my database size expand past the limit of Heroku's free hosting plan.

But that was quite a number of months ago. And, erm, the database is already four times the size that Heroku supposedly limit their free hosting plan to, and I haven't been charged or run up against any database size limits. So perhaps I could give this a try.

It's possible it might precipitate the inevitable move to paid-for hosting, at which point I probably would stick up a Paypal Donate button somewhere on the site. And I quite like not being at that state yet.

Card 78352 renders in the normal frame on visual spoiler page and with planeswalker frame (correctly) on the card page.

It would be nice if existing, Wizards-made keywords were implemented automatically.

When using filters only the graphical representation of a card is removed from the visual spoiler. Links to comments and last changed times remain – resulting in "holes".

On Card not showing in "recent":

Right now I'm looking at and "Community mashup set" appears in the right place for chronological order, but the "recent activity" column doesn't show the most recent card creation+comment, rather the previous one.

Is this an existing caching issue, or something I'm imagining or something else?

On Visual Bug in Visual Spoiler:

Ah, bother, yes, there's a recent change I made that will have been the one to cause this. Thanks for pointing out the bug. I know how to fix it.

On Missing Filter Buttons in Visual Spoiler:

Huh. There was something very weird going on there.

The first thing I tried did fix it for that set, but sadly that meant I wasn't able to investigate why it had happened. It's probably some quirk of cacheing that could still happen in future, so I'll leave this open.

On Planeswalker card has power:

Fancy. I can see why this makes sense with multiple card faces.

Thanks for the help!

On Planeswalker card has power:

Fortunately it's not as bad as you think (and it's not really a bug).

The thing is, you've got the card's type set to "Planeswalker". Multiverse is respecting that.

If you edit that type to remove the word "Planeswalker" (just removing the final "r" is enough) then it reverts to the normal creature frame and you can edit the power (to remove it). Then you can restore the "Planeswalker" type if you want.

On Planeswalker card has power:

When trying to edit the card Torben the Crusader, I noticed that trying to change the frame from "planeswalker" back to "normal" is not possible - in fact any frame you choose afterwards will have now a face that's a planeswalker card.

Due to this the field "power" cannot be edited after creation of the card if you make the card a planeswalker.

On Can't view large sets:

Cardlist is known to not work. But Visual Spoiler should work, as that's paginated. I've used Visual Spoiler on the Multiverse Design Challenge set in the past... yes, that works fine, and that set has 3000 cards.

I agree that VS doesn't seem to be working for CWNH though. That's frustrating. I'll look into it.
Edit: Wow, it seems to be that anyone attempting to view the CWNH visual spoiler generals a "Memory quota vastly exceeded" error. Yikes.

On Missing Filter Buttons in Visual Spoiler:

While checking some sets for the behavior of Visual Bug in Visual Spoiler if stumbled upon another:

This visual spoiler page clearly shows frames of multiple colors, but for me the line "Show frames:" contines only a button for filtering black frames (the set prviously contained only a large number of black cards, so maybe the buttons just don't update correctly with new cards added?).

Force refresh does not resolve the issue.

On Visual Bug in Visual Spoiler:

Left: before applying filter Right: after applying filter

It seems the filter currently just hides card art.

On Can't view large sets:

Aye. The Cards With No Home set with 1600+ cards is a good example. It probably has a bunch of interesting cards, but currently it's impossible to view them properly. You are limited to scouring through the "Recent Activity" or whatever.

Maybe some kind of "partial view" with couple of hundred of cards per page could alleviate this issue?
