Astrum's Cookie Clicker! Poll Time: A Feature For The News Ticker!
AstrumDeorum (136)

I want to ask the public a question:
What do you want as a feature for the News Ticker?
1. The Lucky Lottery
The News Ticker has a Lucky Numbers Headline that has a chance to appear, the Lucky Lottery would let you draw 3 numbers, and if you have the same 3 numbers as the Lucky Numbers Headline the next time it appears, you win a large amount of cookies.
2. The Lucky Headline
This would make a variable that is randomized each time the headline changes, and if the Headline matches the Lucky Headline pick, the News Ticker would have a different look, and if you click it before it rolls over, you'd get a large amount of cookies.

Prizes could change over time, "large amount of cookies" is an example because it's what can currently be done.

We're still accepting headlines for the News Ticker, suggest with the following format

What's The News:
[Your Headline Here]

wait what is up with the lone </div> on line 487?

@noway15 I can't answer every question, nor do I want to. The code is the code and it works.

um where exactly are the elements "tickernews" and "newsticker"?

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum ok last one, um where do I find danews other than when it's mentioned

AstrumDeorum (136)

@noway15 I think that was me trying to figure something out and then realizing that it did nothing.
danews iirc has no functional properties

@AstrumDeorum how did you make the news ticker work I tried but nothin happen

AstrumDeorum (136)

@noway15 You can copy paste my stuff, so long as credits given, since the News Ticker code was all me.

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum eh ok but I mean I'm just asking for the news ticker becuz I already have the basics but nothing shows up

Astrum, something's wrong with the repl. It can't be reached.

Hey there! I’ve noticed you have a lot of individual dev log posts, which sorta fills up Repl Talk with repeat posts about one project. Are you able to put these all in one post that you update every so often?

AstrumDeorum (136)

@RoBlockHead Hmm, Possibly.
You say this right after I put out a New Channgelog, lmao.
It would probably be better to do that to avoid filling up with one thing, like you said.
I did notice that there's seems to be a line limit or something on repl posts, so that does complicate things a little, and if I completely replace a log, it could be somewhat confusing.
I'll figure something out tomorrow before I post the next one.

@AstrumDeorum one solution could be to have a changelog site? Possibly a page on the game’s site?

AstrumDeorum (136)

@RoBlockHead Thats probably a good idea.
I'll add that and put in today's changelog that it'll be the last log sent in the Replit Feed

noway15 (97)

@AstrumDeorum what about just changing the main post for the first cookie clicker remake instead? Like, every time you add something new, just edit the first cookie clicker post to say that.

AstrumDeorum (136)

@noway15 Nah, I've already made a Changelog page in the replit

AstrumDeorum (136)

@RoBlockHead So, I've done that, however I'm think I'll do a weekly post, rather than a daily.
It doesn't crowd as much of the feed for one project, however I can still get word out about some updates.
I'll try and only talk about big developments, and keep some of the lesser improvements in the implemented changelog.
It makes it easier to explain new mechanics, and make it more likely to be seen by regulars than the changelog, so in the event I add something big, I can explain it in the weekly report.
I'll post the weekly reports on Fridays or Saturdays, and give a general overview of what's been accomplished.
I hope that sounds good.

AstrumDeorum (136)

Update: So as it turns out, the Lucky Headline was not all that hard to implement. So I'm just gonna do both.
Sorry folks.

@AstrumDeorum number 1, The Lucky Lottery would be good.

It would be kinda funny if there some tyrannic cookie monster that was destroying a town in search of a cookie

noway15 (97)

@28105 I think Gigachad is already filling that role
he escaped jail and wants cookies
and then he robs all the bakeries in town but takes their cookies rather than their money
