There were about 8 times in 20 clicks and feeds that I got this message:

Oops! Please take a look at the following:
This is not a valid link. Please try another below.

It would show up top on the creature's profile or take me back to the page with all the other links and show this message above everything that is usually on the page.

I'm not sure that's it. When someone runs out of credits it sends you back to the homepage. These are showing that message on top of the creature's page, but it still takes you to the creature's page.

Also, @ian: Does being on the page where you refresh links get your creatures views?

For the ones that says Link is not invalid, I know that means they don't have enough credits.
Eggcavern used to do negative credits when a user clicked on a link and the user didn't have enough credits. Maybe we could do the same with this?

I like that idea.

@Ian
Maybe if a user only has 3 credits they can only display 3 creatures, instead of 4 or more to reduce the amount of no credit clicks.

To build on what promise said, if you did that I would like to have an option as to which of my creatures were shown. An order of which I'd prefer to be shown. Maybe that could be on the page where we manage our creatures, and we could drag/paste the creatures on the list like on the cove lists?

Another idea- we should be able to put in other people's creatures, not just our own. But the creature can only be entered once into the exchange
Like if someone entered someone else's creature but someone else put it in for them, a notice would come up saying, "This creature is already in the exchange. Enter a different creature."

And also maybe a hidden button. Like we still want our creature in the exchange, but just need to hide the link while we freeze it or something.

@horses4ever9147
Do you mean like which creature gets priority clicks/feeds?

I wouldn't like the idea of anyone else entering my creatures if I didn't want to. I really would not want to see that idea implemented.

Hmm...
Maybe there could be a preference in your account saying that other people can/can't enter your creatures?

Yes to your question.

@hai
I agree.You should only be able to enter your own creatures. There are people who have creatures they don't want clicked, and that should be respected.

@Ian It's a wonderful idea, since I miss the click exchange hosted at eggcavern. I only have a few suggestions however one being that they should show the egg picture while selecting one to be put up for the click exchange (like done while selecting a travel)
And one bug--which I'm not really sure if it's a bug or just my creature being clicked as fast as I'm clicking others--is that when I middle click to open a creature in another tab it doesn't give my my XC

@kisamari The XC should update from middle clicking. I've noticed that it might take a refresh or two on the page for it to update from middle clicking links. Is your XC not updating at all?

@Orderedchaos I've kept trying and it's never updated for me--but again it might just be my creatures being clicked as fast as I'm clicking, because I've noticed my XC going fast

@kisamari
It's been giving me my credits (I think!) when I use CTRL+Click to open in a new tab.

But the invalid creatures issue is pretty annoying. Maybe when you click on an invalid creature, have the refresh script run in the same window? Otherwise I end up with ten or so tabs that are all the click exchange. It's a bit confusing >.< And clicking one creature at a time is just too tedious and slow, honestly.

I like the idea of being able to put other user's creatures into the exchange, and also having a setting that disables your creatures being able to be put into the exchange by anyone other than yourself. Or maybe make it a setting in lists, to have certain lists of creatures that can't be put into the exchange.

@manadragonmagic I'll agree with the list setting about allowing others to put your creatures up because I'll admit I get pretty lazy with feeding them myself, and it takes years for any of my eggs to hatch this way.

I think this is going to take a while to work feasibly. Until users can build a large enough XC base, people are going to keep getting error messages when they click on creatures.

In general, I don't like the idea of negative credits, because you'd have to work your way out of debt. I also don't like the idea of other people putting your creatures into the system for you; if you traded a creature in the system and forget to take it out of the Exchange, wouldn't it be the same idea?

I continuously get the same creatures in my clicks and it causes the 'Oops! Please take a look at the following:
This is not a valid link. Please try another below.' error.

That's the only problem I've noticed so far, though.

Negative credits-
You'd only lose credits if your creature appeared on the page another user is clicking, and is removed afterwards. This would get rid of the error message, which is annoying.

About your thing about putting other user links in.
As I said before -no one read my response for some reason-, you could block other people from putting in links for you.
The person who put in the link, and it's not their creature, can face the consequence if the creature is traded, which is the loss of credits.
However if you put in the link, it gets removed if you trade because it's no longer in your cove.
