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.

It seems since there are no fieldnames "multipart", "link-id", "parent-id" there is no way to use the Import Data feature to import multipart cards.

Import Data has problems importing data directly taken from the exported file in CSV format.

Following text is displayed:
Too many non-alphabetic characters in formatting line to deduce CSV separator character. There should only be one, but I found the following: ',','_'

The card frame doesn't stay in a fixed place, and continues to float down screen.

Any chance to add set-mechanics to the stuff that can be exported in a comfortable XML or JSON?

The illustration for schemes is not scaled to the box it is supposed to fill.

If it is not perfectly sized the art will look weird.

On Import multipart cards:

Or maybe the documentation just doesn't explain the option.

On Import Data problem:

Input into Import Data form: Formatting line: "name,code,cost,supertype,cardtype,subtype,rarity,rulestext,flavourtext,power,toughness,artist,art_url,image_url,frame,active"

Character-separated data:""Hottest Gearhunk","RR01","4RR","","Artifact Creature","Golem","rare","Modular 4 (This enters the battlefield with four +1/+1 counters on it. When it dies, you may put its +1/+1 counters on target artifact creature.) Haste (This creature can attack and {t} as soon as it comes under your control.)","","2","0","","","","Red","true""

Response: "Too many non-alphabetic characters in formatting line to deduce CSV separator character. There should only be one, but I found the following: ',','_'"

Issue seems to be: The strings "art_url" and "image_url" are valid field names, but the character '_' is expected to be used as a separator.

Workaround: Use the aliases "art" and "image"

Why it still should be fixed: I feel strongly that the export in CSV format and import in CSV format should be compatible.

On Frame Won't Stay Put:

I now have this problem on a new laptop. I don't know why, perhaps it's my browser (Safari). I've used at least 5 different devices before and never had this issue.

Update: It's not the browser. I'm using Chrome now and I'm still having the problem.

On Additional Info in the Export:

Ooh, that's a really good idea. Yes, I'm all for making the site easier to interoperate with MSE.

On Additional Info in the Export:

Would be useful for my tool to convert sets to MSE-SET files (and later other formats).

I can probably parse all the information I need from the HTML of the Mechanics detail page, but custom mechanics are needed to build MSE-SET files correctly.

On No Planeswalker frame in Visual spoiler page:

So strange. I can reproduce the issue, but I have no idea why the code is doing anything different there.

On Illustration on Schemes:

Reference: A God Am I

 B 
Ongoing Scheme
You can't lose the game and your opponents can't win the game.
When you control no nonland permanents, abandon this scheme.

On Bad error for duplicate code:

Huh... this is really a duplicate of my earlier forbidden card move has unhelpful error...

On Card not showing in "recent":

Right now I'm looking at http://www.magicmultiverse.net/cardsets 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.
