I am an admin, not a player, I might not think/see all questions that could be useful to have in our FAQ. That's why I need your help!

Please use this thread to suggest questions (and answers if you want) to our FAQ, and I will be updating it from time to time, removing the suggestions comments as I add them.

* My Lion's really ugly! How do I replace him with this cute cub I have?

* What do all the symbols next to my lion's names mean??
* What's up with the moon and sun thing next to the time?
*Is there a difference between day and night or wet season or dry season? (answer is something like... some lions have bonuses during certain times, some explore events only show up at certain times. Some events have certain things at certain times. etc)
* I didn't notice my EXP/IMP was at 100%! Did I lose some EXP/IMP??
* What are these Event Currency things?

* What's a King Dynasty?
* What's a Pride Dynasty?
* What's a Showcase?

* How come no one wants a studding from my lion?
* I sent a stud request, but it was never responded to! :( they stole my money! (Answer: introduction to 'view your stud requests' and canceling stud requests, As well 'last online' times because MAN, it sucks to send a request then realize they haven't logged in in over a year.)

* My question isn't here! How do I get more help? (modbox/helper hub)
* What happens if I have more than 200 messages?
* How fast do my lions age? (this should be a long answer with notes about 1 month per day, but only on days that you log in after you rollover. The age of a cub leaving mom, and taking up a slot in the pride, when cubs grow to adolescences, when they become adults.. as well as when a lioness can no longer breed, and when a lioness/submale runs the risk of dying, as well as when a king can retire and when they are forced to retire.)
* not a question but retiring mechanics are really baffling to the newbie. Explain more?
* Ahhh! I had a really weird cub be born! did I do something wrong? :(
* What the heck's a mutation?
* It says this food is rare, or exotic... is it special? will it do something cool when I eat it?


Adjustment: "how do I gain more territory" Please for the love of the ancestors, rephrase this answer. Right now, it suggests that you MUST buy territory with SB, and only THEN can you use PVP to gain territory.

My suggestion: "There are three ways to buy territory, however, only two are available to a new player. The first method is via spending SB: You will see a tiny (+) symbol next to your territory counter. Click that to purchase a territory slot with SB. When you have XXX territory, you can no longer buy territory using SB. The second method is via attacking other players. (see below!) You may attack other players for territory until you reach a total of 40 territory. From there, the only way to expand your territory is by using GB. There is no cap to how much territory you can purchase with GB.

WHEW that is all I can think of right now.

RE: Gain more territory.

Yes! I have seen so many people desperately trying to get enough SB to buy territory not realizing that they can attack others for it. A detailed guide of how to attack others for territory (how to search, view stats, the fact that they don't have to be online) would be helpful too.

As for other FAQ questions, these are the things I had trouble with when starting and have seen from other players:
- What's the difference between a branch and the trading post?
- How can I find out what to price items? (where Sales is and how to use it)
- What is a custom decor? Including that your art has to be approved and where the find the tutorial/guidelines.
- I keep seeing "event decor" or "event applicators" - what are those?
- How do I get better stats/coat/markings? Explaining quests, sharpening claws, stat replacing, basics of breeding w/ links to user guides/wiki on genetics etc.
- How do I get my den to look like x? Briefly explain html & css.
- How do I post links in chat?
- How do I post images in forums/chat/messages?
- The message said I had a friend request - where do I go to accept/decline it? (This might have been fixed in the latest update, I haven't had a friend request since then).
- What is VLF? NCL? Xy?
- I got a stud request! How do I stud?
- I keep seeing "x". What is it? How to find and use the item catalog.
- What are tags?

(Does anyone want to reword this first sugggestion of mine to make it easier to understand? Or is it understandable as is?)
Mention somewhere that when a lion or lioness who left the pride has 7 days to reclaim, those are 7 real life days in the Lioden time zone, not Lioden days (Lioden days are from 2:06am Lioden time to 2:05am Lioden time). Which means that they leave at 12am Lioden time, not 2am Lioden time. Mention that this is counted by Lioden time, not by which time zone you are currently in.

That the helper hub exists, and how to use the helper hub

What the modbox is for, verses what the helper hub is for

What time rollover is (2:05am lioden time)

Lioden does not change times with daylight savings time

Lioden time is the same regardless of where you are in the world

That green light next to a players name on their page means that they are online. No light means that they are offline

What each of the forums is vaguely for (as their uses change per person and topic, but some things remain the same. Such as the bug board is for glitches and issues on the site, ect.)

I'm pretty sure its on there, but i've seen a lot of new players asking how old a lion or lioness is when they become an adult, so maybe put it in a place that's more obvious

What each icon next to the players names means (like the green paw, the blue paw, gold paw, the star, ect.)
I'm imagining this one as a list like this (it would have the actual icons listed i just don't know how to post them):
(icon of yellow paw): Admin
(icon of green paw): Moderator
(icon of blue paw): Helper
(icon of star): gives GB to the game a lot
and any other icons that slipped my mind

How to send and accept a friend request. This includes where the friend requests show up (In the den under allies. There you can either accept or reject a friend request)

When you log on and walk away from the computer, it takes ? minutes before the site automatically logs you off (i think its 20-30 minutes, but i forget)

What are adoptables, and what can you do with them? How do you paste on into your den?

How do you resize an image?

How do I gain territory? How do I attack people? Why do I keep losing?
Explain that users can buy territory spaces or attack other players for it (also explain that being attacked and attacking others doesn't literally take away their territory spaces). It would also be helpful to talk about how stats play a role when it comes to attacking others.

When can I retire my king?
Players can retire their at any time when he reaches 15 years old. He will automatically die when he reaches 16. Players may also retire their kings early for 10 GB.

When do my lions and lionesses die?
They can die at any time between 15 and 16 years old (16 being where they automatically die).

I need help! Why do mods and helpers keep ignoring me in chat?
Explain that chat moves quickly and sometimes staff doesn't see the questions. Also explain that the Helper Hub and I'm Lost section is always there for people with questions, even if they may sound silly or minuscule.

Which mutation items stack? Does 1% fertility matter with mutation items?

How do I view bases and manes? I wanna see if my lion looks good with it!
Talk about the wardrobe and other features it provides other than looking at bases and manes (decor, BGs, etc)

How much of an item do you need to craft something?
30 (pretty sure?). It'd also be nice to list all the things players can craft and the items required to make them.

My lionesses ran away! How do I get them back!?
Users have to buy them all back, but have 7 irl days to do so. Feeding and playing with your lions daily or every few days can stop them from leaving.

What fonts do you guys use?

Some more q's:

- How do I put links in chat?
- I met the criteria for an achievement, but it won't register. Why is that?
- I reached 100% EXP/IMP. Where do I go to level up?
- What's rollover and when does it happen?

Don't know if you have this one.

Why can't I win territory when fighting?


I could actually use an answer for this anyway if you can (PM me). But that might be worth putting up. I'm desperatly trying to fight for it but keep losing.

RE: Beetles
Q: How do I get a beetle?
A: You can claim one via explore in a certain encounter! There is a chance that by grabbing the squishy blob, you could get a random beetle of any sex, species, or colour! [beetle encounter image here]

Q: Can I breed any beetle together?
A: No, you must have matching species (i.e., two homoderus mellyi) of opposite gender. Then, when are 11 days/months old, you can breed them for more adorable beetle babies of the aforementioned species!

RE: Breeding and Studding
Q: Help! A stud hasn't responded to my request and I lost my money!
A: You can cancel a stud request for a refund at the bottom of your den page. [screenshot of button] Simply click it and cancel any request you like!

Q: How do I set my male up for studding?
A: You visit his page and scroll waayyy down, underneath his biography! There, you can set prices and rules! You can pick gold beetle or silver beetle prices. Careful! A stud can only breed 15 times a week (not including your own lionesses,) so be sure you try to fill them all up!

~I will add more and stick it all to this post to reduce clutter. Check tomorrow?~

@Jake that's because there is more than one currency for certain months :P

The questions I had as a newbie:

-If you attack someone for territory, does it mean they lose the territory?
-Help! So-and-so sent me a message about my trade saying they kill lions a lot! Does this mean they'll kill my king if I refuse their offer?? (Yes, this was an actual concern of mine. I even Modboxed it.)
-What do all these weird items do? Are black stallions food? Why are people paying GB for a dove feast? Is that a decoration or something? (I still have no idea about most of them )
-What is up with these frivolous thoughts my lion keeps having?? (Before I realized it was an event xDDD I joined literally the day before and I was SOO lost.)
-I keep getting slapped by lionesses! Help!!
-What is 'king of the jungle?' What does it do?
-Does 'deathlord' imply that this player has killed the most lions?
-How do I get all these awesome-looking lions?
-Ack! I keep breeding my king to pretty-looking lionesses but the cubs all look terrible! Why is this happening?
-Why do I have to pay for someone else to stud to me? (Reverse breeding; WUUUUUUT ISSSSS THISSSSSS (I still don't really know))

^^Most of these questions have been answered by now but I had no clue how to Lioden way back when and I figure these questions may be similar to what is running through someone else's head.
