Hate the tutorial
« on: January 15, 2012, 08:07:34 pm »
I don't care for the new system that brings me to a tutorial.  Maybe designed to filter out those lacking patience?  I want to do craters, like I did before, please.  All right, I'll try the tutorial again.  But do I have to do it everytime I come to the site?

At the moment it's just the first time you log on. If this is not the case let us know. The team are looking to change it - stick with us.

I'm inclined to agree Jules, i've logged into the main site twice and it wants me to do the tutorial each time, damn thing is super fussy about getting the craters dead centre.

We know that it's a problem - plans are afoot to change things.

Very strange, I didn't have to do the tutorial in the new and improved MoonZoo. Not even once ! :o

I haven't had to do the tutorial either and would have liked to have done it at least once!

Could it cave to do with cookies? Maybe it keeps giving you the tutorial because the cookie is getting wiped, or isn't getting saved?

Hi guys, I just wanted to let you know that in the next few minutes I'll be updating Moon Zoo to make sure that people who have marked craters in the past won't have to go through the new tutorial.

Cheers
Arfon

Later...

Just to say that the tutorial has now been removed. It will soon be replaced by a new improved one but at least new members won't get stuck on it any more.
