Lore tokens?


Ultra-Rare also at least.


What type of token does the TokenDB say a GT is? (That's a serious question. I'm using Target's wifi, and they block TokenDB but not the forum. Stoopid Target...)

Oh.

Just realized, the new design may be using a whole lot more data than the old. For those of us without limitless data plans, that could be a problem when using the site at GenCon.

If the backend is the same, maybe we could have a link to a low-data version, versus the "download it all" version for when we're on home networks and Wifi?

The Text on Token fields should now be fully converted.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?
Please post TDb corrections/suggestions in this thread .
If I write something in teal, it should not be taken seriously

The message said it was being blocked so that other patrons would have a better browsing experience. My conjecture is that it was blocked because of the large data payload. But since the older design isn't up, I don't know if they'd block it, too.

I love the new design. Very fast. But it comes at a price, so it would be nice to have the option, if possible.

I doubt that's it - I did some testing on this front. Token.db's front page load and a search for "+1" both resulted in around 160 kB of data.

For comparison, my newsfeed at Facebook is 10x as large at aroun 1.6 MB, youtube.com is around 4x as large at 630 kB (let alone if I were to actually click on a video)!

I think it's much more likely that the library and schools use a whitelist of selected sites, and tokendb is so obscure that it's not on those lists.

Here are some other profoundly obscure, harmless sites you can use to test the "whitelist" theory:

www.delegypte.com/
app.kannetic.com
illuminator.herokuapp.com/vizualize/script/1/

They are ordered in descending order of network usage to load the home page.

And you think TrueDungeon.com/forum is mainstream enough to be white listed?

Could be, I suppose.

Dunno - just saying it's not about bandwidth. If you can load espn.com and whitehouse.gov you can load pages with 5x+ times more data content than tokendb.com.

I think your data is wrong. You must have something cached.

According to websiteoptimization.com, the TokenDB.com home page is over 470kb.

ESPN.com, meanwhile, is 67kb.

If you've ever watched your Facebook feed on your phone, you realize it doesn't download it all at once. It does a chunk, then if you scroll down enough it pulls in another.

Not saying your conclusion is wrong, but it seems to be based on faulty data.

TokenDB.com was flagged as a "Games" website. Most firewalls auto filter games as denied.
I suspect that is what was going on here. I know I don't have access to it at work but I do have access to these forums.
Sweet a combat room, we won't take damage!

I don't bring attention to it b/c I don't want them to block the forum as well!

Per Jeff, the duplicate healing spell cast by Lenses of Divine Sight requires/consumes a Free Action. The TDb has been updated to reflect this.
