Clean up

remove link to fullbeards blog page as many parts of the blog refer to pictures that no longer are displayed on the article—Preceding unsigned comment added by Mysterio (talkcontribs)

It's not rendered completely useless by the lack of pictures. And there is a chance he could re-add them later. Unless it's a comlpetely dead link, I see no reason to remove it. Chupchup 12:21, 7 September 2011 (PDT)

Foraging volume

Should we have a table showing how much fruit can fit onto a ship?

Foraging tips

Should we link to the forum threads where "How to make millions by foraging" are discussed?

The foraging page states that fruit is collected by foraging at uncolonized islands; should it state that you need to sail it to a market in a different arch for full value?

Needs More Information

Updated the article with the first gold trophy. Astralguard 01:30, 27 June 2007 (PDT)

The biggest flaw with this article is the stunning lack of information one expects to find on it. For example:

However, some players quickly figured out the schedule on which these commodities spawned, and acquired what was felt to be a disproportionate share of the 'found' wealth, which also had a large impact on the economy. These flaws inspired the Ringers to make changes to the foraging system, creating the process that now exists.

What process exists now? Chances are that most people who visit this article are looking for that information. Do they spawn entirely at random? Is there a limit on how much you can forage? We should put this in the article.

A link to a guide on foraging would also be useful.

It's a wiki, edit the article and add to it. "We" includes you. --Guppymomma 13:26, 17 September 2006 (PDT)

Foraging Labor

We need a sentence or two about how much labor is used by how much foraging. I don't know how to figure my labor usage while puzzling and came to this article to find out. Hopefully, someone has this figured out by now.--Siriuskase 03:15, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Foraging uses one hour per crate of fruit/gems. One banana on the meter to the left represents one crate, so the number of hours you use per session can be seen at the start of the session from the number of bananas there are on the meter. --Belthazar451 03:46, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Labor Hours

"pirates without any labour hours remaining...may not apply to be jobbed" Is this true? I thought that so long as you had a subscription/labor badge, it didn't matter if you were out of hours.

You're quite right. Funny, I could have sworn... --Belthazar451 23:38, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Earthquake behavior

"An earthquake strikes the board! This shakes the entire board, causing tiles to shift one place to the left or right." I believe I have observed tiles shifting more than 1 place to the left or right if there is a gap spanning more than 1 column. In other words, the tiles seem to shift as far as they need to in order to close a gap. Can anyone else confirm? Fuzzybeard 00:42, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Yep. Also, if there's a chest on the down-stream edge of the board, the tiles in that row won't move at all. --Belthazar451 06:38, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

"Only subscribers or badge holders have advance labor hours"

This is a false statement. All labor puzzles use advance labor, yet players without the appropriate privileges are still able to provide labor for crafting puzzles on free days. The main difference (and probably reasoning why freeplay foraging can't use labor) is that foraging consumes this advance labor MUCH more quickly. But anyone who runs through a crafting puzzle without intent to score well will probably burn up their 24 hours of advance labor quickly, and thus be greeted with a "you have used up your labor for the day" message. Note that foraging and crafting puzzles draw on the same pool of advance labor. Use up your labor from foraging, and you'll notice that you can't provide any labor for crafting puzzles until some time elapses (I have done this myself, before the forage puzzle). It has always been this way. --Thunderbird 07:37, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Cover bounties here or link to coverage elsewhere (if any)

The "Foraging with a Crew" section of the Notice Board has a column for Bounties. It would be helpful to provide an explanation of what this means and how bounties work. Gascony 00:31, 30 September 2011 (PDT)

CI foraging vs regular foraging, out of date image

The scoring between these two is vastly different from each other. While this should maybe be documented in more detail on the CI page instead, I think this page should warrant a mention and link to the CI foraging page.

In addition, the noticeboard image featured at the bottom File:Forage_noticeboard.png is out of date. As it is a protected image, I cannot edit it.
