Unsubscribing from a Collection

Making this a public PSA because there are people who don't understand how collections work. 

Who can see a collection is originally set by the collection owner. When it is created, people are given a choice to make it public, private, or set it so that only certain circles (i.e. groups of people) can see it. If it is made public, that means everyone on G+ can see it.

If you find yourself viewing a collection that you have no interest in, fret not. It's quite simple to make it go away. 

-----------------------------------------------------------
Unfollowing from Old G+ Format

Method 1: Unfollow from post

Look at the top of the post that you don't want to see. If it has a title like "Screenshots and Video Games" and a little, blue icon that looks like a diamond, it's a collection. If you hover your mouse just below the blue icon, a downward pointing arrow will appear. Click on that. You'll get a dropdown box that will give you the option to "unfollow collection." Do that! Unfollow the collection and you will never see another post from that collection.

Method 2: Unfollowing from Collections

Click on the Home button in the top, left hand of the screen. Select "Collections" from the dropdown box. At the bottom of the screen that comes up will be a list of all the collections in your circles. Select the one that you want to unfollow. There will be a big "follow" button on the collections page that toggles on/off. Set it so that you are unfollowing.

--------------------------------------
Unfollowing from New G+ Format

Method 1: Unfollow from Post

If the post has a title in blue, that indicates that it is part of a collection. Click the blue title and it will take you to the collection page. There will be a big "follow" button on the left hand column. Toggle that so that you are no longer following.

Method 2: Unfollow from Collections

On the left hand column, click on "Collections." In the next screen that comes up, select the "Following" tab at the top of the screen. All the collections that you are following will show up and each has a "follow/unfollow" toggle button. Toggle the button so that it is showing "follow" instead of "following."

---------------------------------------
Advice

Gosh darn it, Jane! I keep telling these people to stop sending me these things and I still get notified. Grrrrrr!

Well, see...you messed up by replying to the post. The G+ program can't tell the intent behind your written words. All it knows is that you replied to a post, therefore, you must want to be part of the conversation. So, anytime anyone replies to that post, you will be notified. 

If you don't want to be part of the conversation going forward, then don't reply!

ARGH! I keep getting texts about these posts! I wish these people would stop texting me because it's annoying!

No one is texting you. They are simply posting new things or replying to posts. If you are getting a text, it is because you have set up G+ to send you texts somewhere in your settings. I don't know how to fix that, off the top of my head. I suggest you look through your settings and remove your phone number.

Also, per +Mike Stietenroth, you may not be getting texts. It may be the G+ app alerting you to a post. From the comments:

"The texting thing could also be the Google app on your phone sending you a message. It's not an actual text but it does make a tone and show up on your main screen. 

That's what I have and I get alerts when certain people post. At least I do if I have the app running."

(laughs) Feel free to copy/paste it into your collection and pin it. That way, it's an easy reference for when those clueless people show up. :D

For +Chris Smith: The capybara with cheeseburger backpack. (I hope no one comes lurching out of the interwebs, upset that I am using this....)

I was also tempted to use the second image of the intellectual capybara. XD

Dragon's Prophet Wombats! I have bought an apartment, in-game, that can be the official Wombat Flophouse. I have set the entire guild as my roommates, because you are all awesome and I know you'll bring pizza over if you crash here. 

Now, why would you want to crash at Ye Old Flophouse? Because if you log out there, you get rested bonus exp. Now, I will admit that it's probably not worth the time and effort to get to the apartment, right now. The exp bonus gain is purely dependent upon the furniture in the place. What I have, now, only gives you a paltry 2 exp/hour. (Yeah, it's sad.) But, every time I play, I go to the carpenter's bench and make more stuff to add. So, it's getting better! I figure that that the higher level furniture nets more bonus, so I'm working hard at leveling it.

Heh! Because I'm tossing everything that I craft in there, and I'm only crafting the highest level things that I can...there's a lot of duplicates. There are tons of big, La-Z-Boy looking chairs and drab paintings in the place. And a couple of plants. It looks like a doctor's waiting room. As I said, though, I'm crafting my hinney off in the interest of bettering the flophouse! XP

To get to it, follow these directions (part of which I am shamelessly lifting from the DP Wiki):

To access the housing areas you must first enter the 'Path of Elders' portal that is just northeast of Arteicia in the Laedis Zone. After you have entered the portal a map of the islands will be displayed and you can choose which of the islands you wish to visit. [My apartment is in Baerton Dusklight Isle]. 

Look for the apartment manager. It'll show up on the sky island map as a green house. Go there and then go up the steps beside the Apartment Manager NPC. There will be a portal at the top. When you get the pop-up asking if you want to go home or visit a friend, just type in my character name. If you've forgotten it, just look in the guild roster and I show up as the GM. :)

Flop sweat? Sure! After all, what happens in Wombat Flophouse stays in Wombat Flophouse. XD

Heh! I'm afraid it's not very impressive, Jeremy. But, when I have enough money, I plan on upgrading to a plot of land and buying a proper house. I'm betting that gives way more exp bonus!

I was in the mood to shoot things, today, so I cranked up Firefall. I had completely forgotten how to play, so I deleted my old character and made a new one so I could go through the newbie experience, again. (I wasn't far enough in or had enough assets to make restarting a problem.)

So, I'm sure that I am no longer in the Wombat company/guild/group whatever it is called. It's not because I don't love you all! I just started over. :D

Thanks to +Stephanie Morrow's generosity, we now have a guild dimension in RIFT. Yeah!! We've got the Stonefield Tavern and it is lovely. Anyone who wants to log in and start decorating or use it as a launchpoint for events, feel free. :D

Thank you for funding the purchase, Stephanie! You are made of pure awesome! :D

I imagine it will work much the way the others were added, survival and fishing, they're not limited by what craft classes you already have, anyone can choose them.

Making this a public post as a PSA.

My husband took me to see Deadpool for Valentine's because...well...he's awesome and he knows the sorts of things that I enjoy. Screw flowers and candy! Gimme an immortal, snarky psychopath any day of the week. The movie was great! It was action-packed and downright hysterical.  However....

This movie is NOT APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN

I'm saying this because we saw parents taking their kids who looked to be 8-9 years old into this film. 

No. No. NO. Read the reviews. This film is chock full of gratuitous, graphic violence, sex, and incredibly rough language. Unless you want to spend time explaining sex to your kids and them having nightmares about decapitations and severed limbs....just...no. Don't take them.

You and your spouse/significant other go enjoy it alone. Have a great time! Laugh at the ridiculousness of it. It's fun! Just, really, seriously, incredibly inappropriate for kids.

I got nothing to add about the numbers. But, I will say that I always like your posts. You have a point, when you write. I know when I start reading that you are going somewhere. You're not just tossing out something because the Blog Mafia demands you write something that day.

"Oh, gawd. I can't think of anything....lettuce! I am going to write about lettuce in gaming. Vegetable based combat! Yeah, that's the ticket..."

None of that silliness! And, I appreciate it.
In my last post, I talked about getting a feel for how the site is doing based on the amount of engagement that people might see on the site. This is a kind of pseudo-metric as it’s not going…

It's that time of the year, again! It's Extra Life time! I've been named team captain, this year, and am trying to get everything sorted out.

If you want to join in the shenanigans, I've got a Google Doc going where you can sign up. You can find it here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sRoL2HGQKOmX9l2dkeyQHaaSgYOdYOpBepB1uk72Vu4/edit

And, I've set up the Extra Life team page. Or, at least, I've started to. I still need to personalize it. I dubbed us the League of Extraordinary Rodents, this year. Yes, I know that wombats aren't rodents. But, I found a picture of a capybara wearing a cheeseburger backpack and was all, "We need to use this image!!" So, rodents.

I've created a Combat Wombat guild in Villagers and Heroes. Mostly, I just want to see what it is like to have your own village. As always, CW may or may not remain in V&H long, but I am curious about the mechanics of this particular system.

The good thing is that if I/we wander away from the game, our village would be opened up as a "open village" for anyone to join. And, I think a new mayor would be appointed. Maybe. I'm not sure. But, I do know that it would no longer be private/

Unfortunately, it's not an easy game to connect in. The leader is the only person who can invite, so if anyone is interested, ping me here and I can log in long enough to send an invitation.
Villagers and Heroes is a fantasy role-playing game set in a vast multiplayer world. Play for free today!

Dragon's Prophet Wombats! I discovered, today, that you can apply to the  guild, Wombaticus, via the guild clerk located in the cities. So, I don't have to be online for you to make the request.

Just go to the guild clerk and look at the available guilds that have open recruitment. There's no way to search, but you can order the list alphabetically. Scroll down until you find Wombaticus and hit "apply."

Now, I don't know who all gets the notifications. I'm sure that I could've looked at the rank settings and found out, but I didn't think about it until I was typing this out!  I'm sure that Jeremy and I will, since we are leaders. I don't know if senior guild members do, or not.

There's a tab under the guild interface called "applications." Anyone who has applied will be listed under there and you can let people in.

Hopefully, make sure everyone is guilded, and then I guess just pal around for a while. Folks can probably break up into groups if they've got the same quests, although it seems that many folks have already gotten started. Other than that, just free-form stuff, I guess.

Rift Wombats! I noticed, today, that one of my own alts doesn't have access to the guild bank. Heh. I never promoted her out of "you might be okay, but I'm watching you" status. So, it stands to reason that I might have accidentally missed promoting one of you fine folks.

If you are playing and find you can't get into anything, just let me know and I'll fix it.

Story
Introduction
I will play any MMO that comes out. I love them, am addicted to them....crave them. This means that sometimes I find glorious gems hiding in corners of the internet. Other times, though, I stumble into the dregs of gaming nastiness. But, it's always an adventure.

Currently playing:

Wakfu

You'll find that my posts section is pretty empty because I rarely if ever post publicly, but I do share a lot with my gaming circle. However, I do not share my circles. I'm just not comfortable handing out other people's info.

I have two circles that I post to regularly - "Gaming" and "Internet Friends." Gaming gets all my gaming hoohas while Internet Friends gets all the weird and wacky, non-gaming related things that I stumble across. If you don't want to be in "Internet Friends," just let me know because I automatically dump everyone who circles me into both.
