Image request (Withdrawn)

Could someone (anyone) who manages to catch one, grab a screenshot of any Side Job in progress? Desktop or mobile (or both, even better), doesn't matter. I'll keep an eye out as well, but currently my hero doesn't have one.

The only screenshots we have right now are my expired Halloween side job image:

and the earlier one Tsarczar took before the nature of the new feature was even revealed:

Capture 10-30-18.JPG


Neither of which are really all that effective for illustrating the new feature.

(I was going to add a Side Jobs note to the main page's "Did You Know?" box, but looking at the article I feel like it'd be better to at least update the screenshots first.)

I suppose {{Diaryquest}} could use a Side Job mode, as well. I'll put that on my todo list. FeRDNYC (talk) 20:52, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

Never mind, got it! I have to crop the image before I can upload it, but my hero was on a Side Job today, so I have a screenshot. It also means I was able to capture the CSS for the side jobs, which nicely enough is exactly the same as the Quests CSS, just with a different color — rgb(205, 171, 216) — set for the progress bar. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 00:44, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Frequency

I seem to be getting 1 side job a week, although I haven't logged the start dates. Worth having this in if we can pinpoint the frequency? --S624 (talk) 13:07, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Definitely, I'd say. If it's a regular, repeating pattern. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 21:24, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
Even if it isn't super regular, I think it's interesting enough for people who're curious. I think it'll take us quite a few weeks of tracking to get good figures, but I'm tracking it now. -- Djonni (talk) 12:38, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
So I've now got a month of side jobs & the frequency seems to be 4 days between them, with the occasional 2 or 3 day interval. Anyone else got any other timings?

Interesting, thanks S624. Hmmm: Sun, +5 Fri, +4 Tue, +4 Sat, +4 Wed, +5 Mon, +5 Sat, +4 Wed. That's not really any kind of pattern at all! "4 or 5 days between, 1 or 2 in a given week, on any day(s) of the week." (Except Thursday, so far, but that's probably just the small sample size?) It's all over the map. Unless maybe accounting for time-of-day / timezone offset might reveal more regular intervals? -- FeRDNYC (talk) 10:28, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

Diaryquest side job mode

{{Diaryquest}} now has a Side Job mode, which can be used with or without a main Quest:

This code
{{Diaryquest |side= Create 3 GodWiki articles |time=(8:00) |status= 67}}
Results in
Hero
Side Job
(8:00)
Create 3 GodWiki articles

More examples and parameter details in the Template:Diaryquest documentation. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 16:20, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
