User Shops Maintenance Completed

User Shop Fixes

Thank you for the incredible feedback so far about user shops. We're working to make the experience and as pleasurable as possible. Thanks for bearing with us as we add even more features and implement fixes.

User shops fixes are as follows...

  • Removed the ability to "submit button spam" on the expand page
  • Fixed pagination issues when attempting to navigate to any page other than page 1 (this fixes the "missing items" issue; they didn't go missing, you just couldn't see them on the next pages)
  • Fixed sort order pages going to a 404 page under Manage Stock
  • Removing 0 EC (invisible) items from the shop search

Manage Stock Reimagined

We have changed the look and feel of managing shop stock. It no longer looks like your Strongrooms (which some of you found confusing). You can now update prices in a large batch (for all items on the page instead of one by one).

Mass Shop to Inventory Transfers

Use the new All to Inventory option to send a batch of items back to your Inventory.

Mass Inventory to Shop Transfers

You can now mass move items from your Inventory by using the checkboxes and clicking Move to Shop.

Thought you lost an item in your shop?

Try finding it on another page (this is now fixed). You probably didn't lose the item.

User Shops Have Arrived at Egg Cave

What's New: User Shops

User Shops have arrived at Egg Cave and you can find yours under the Shop navigation drop down. A new profile tile has been added to everyone's profile, too, which links to their shop front. Here's how it works.

  • Move items from your Inventory by clicking on them and selecting "Move to Your Shop"
  • Set item prices anything between 1 EC and 100 million EC
  • Items that are 0 EC do not display and cannot be bought
  • When an item sells, the EC goes to your Shop Till (when you have more than 0 EC in your till, there will be a bubble that appears on the sidebar)
  • Like Coves, you can expand your shop to accommodate more items (all shops begin with 50 spaces)
  • Your profile egg displays as your shopkeeper and you can modify your shop's text under Update Shop Text

How To Find Items You Need

You can use the User Shop Search to search for items that you need. By default, the lowest-priced items display first so you will always be getting the best deal. Please note that search results might be a bit sparse at first, as users will need time to stock their items and set reasonable prices.

The main sidebar search does not include user shops. This is a specific type of search (like auctions search or trades search).

User Shops Directory

The main User Shops page acts like a directory where you can view the biggest shops and most well-stocked shops. Think of these as kinds of leaderboards. But it also includes two tabs called Recently Stocked and Recently r90+ that we think you might find really useful. On these two tabs you'll be able to find the most recently stocked items as they are priced and put into shops.

If you find a deal, snatch it up as quickly as you can!

User Shops Capabilities

You cannot buy or sell either eggs or creatures in user shops. Continue to use auctions and trades for those transactions.

Unrelated: Instant Withdrawals/Deposits

Withdrawals and deposits are instantaneous again at your Strongroom. Prior glitches that allowed people to "double withdraw" and generate Egg Coins remain fixed under instant withdrawals/deposits.

Coming Soon: Quests

With a brand-new way to get items quicker and easier than ever before, we're excited to announce that we have plans to implement a fun questing system (requiring items) in the coming months. Stay tuned for updates!

No Double Feed Blog

We apologize that there was no double feed blog posted this past Sunday. It indeed did happen and we hope that you took the time to benefit from it. In the mean time, we've fixed the bug that prevented the Site Blog post from being posted.
