Social Action Difficulties and How to Solve Them Messages in this topic - RSS

Have you ever wondered how to add someone as a friend in Fallen London?
Have you ever had your friends tell you your user could not be found on Storynexus?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, this is the thread for you!

There are two things you need to know:
What your Storynexus Username is, and what your Fallen London Character Name is.

Your Storynexus username is found on the orange bar at the top of the Fallen London screen. Here is an example, where the Username is Aximillio:

This username is the same on all games on the Storynexus platform, so you can use it in other games as well.

Your Fallen London character name, on the other hand, is a name you have only in Fallen London. This can be seen on the top of the Myself tab of Fallen London.
These names also determine where your profile is located. Every Character has his own profile at http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/[CharacterName]
For instance, Aximillio has a profile page at http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/Aximillio

Once you know your friend's Username/Character name, you can add them to your friends list at http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/su.


Q: How do I change my Fallen London character name?
A: You can change this on the 'Myself' tab in Fallen London, by clicking your character name. Note that this costs 15 Fate/Nex, so you'll want to do this sparingly.
A player with a character name of Example would have a profile page at . If there were no characters called this, you would be redirected to the Fallen London site instead.

Q: How do I change my Storynexus Username?
A: You can do so at http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/su, under Username.

Q: How does my name appear when sending social actions?
A: Currently, results seems to be [SN Name] ([Character Name] in Fallen London), with pending requests being a mix, however this might change.

Q: Why don't the people I've added show up on social actions?
A: Every social action has its requirements, which both sender and receiver has to fulfil for an action to take place. If they don't, their name won't show up.
A few examples can be found further down the page.
Alternatively it might be an 'invite someone from the surface' action - these are only possible to send to people not playing Fallen London, usually through Twitter or Facebook.

Q: Is there any way to hide my username when sending the actions? I'm shy/don't want my tokens to be stolen
A: No. You can always ask the receiver to not send any actions back, however. Should you find anyone overly abusive, you can always send a mail to abuse@storynexus.com

Q: When I added this Username, my friends list turned black and the player was not added. What can I do to solve this?
A: This seems to have been occurring with the Social Actions fixes.
As Alexis Kennedy says, The 'black screen of loneliness' bug can be fixed by the player changing their username (but not by reverting it, which usually won't be possible). Just adding an underscore or number is enough. Some people have have been unable to change back their names after this, so be cautious about what you change your name into.

Possibly returned after a long hiatus. Please do not send live rats or tournament requests.

Good news: (1) is now implemented. You can now add users to your friends list by current-world character name.

No, this URL indeed no longer works. All FL links with "storynexus" in them don't work anymore.

The new URL is https://www.fallenlondon.com/account which is best accessed via "Account settings" in the black bar at the top right of your screen (on a desktop computer. I have no idea how all this looks on mobile.)

Also, whenever you click on a social action in-game, you should see both "Add a contact" where you can enter usernames, and "Suggest a contact" which will suggest a random player.

Hope this helps a bit! smile
