    How about skiffs having the option to pin code? Could we make this a thing?

    So is fear 5 active? I have it activated on my SP and the cooking pot shows the recipes but it has no crafting requirements showing.

    Why is everyone so confused about this event? Updates don't usually drop yet. The earliest i'd expect it is in approx 40 minutes which is the typical time for updates to drop.

    Is it just me or are the crafting requirements for skins missing in the cooking pot??

    Anyone who expected an event to actually be released on the day it was announced for, hasn't played ARK very long. 

    no theyre ok at events, and they released the event time a couple days before so i think its just gonna take time/. but your right theyre bad at anything bigger than an event.

    If the spooky scary skeletons dance isn't one of the new emotes I'm deleting the game

    is it safe to tell him? if they dont anounce any new emotes then we dont get any new emotes.

    Prevented the Dodorex/Dodowyvern from being mindcontrolled by the Noglin! Your raptoring seriousness? Think about a better solution for the server taming cap!!!

    Hey, WC the bulbdog costume cant be put on to the bulbdog. you need to give the bulbdogs a costume slot. I also cryoed my bulbdog than chucked it out, so its not a visual issue.

    When are you going to fix the spawn rate of the spooky piles. They're not spawning in, only see 3 in the last 24 hours. Would love to make skins but can't. Event is broken.

    Last year you upped the amount of headstones/scarecrows/pumpkins you got from each spooky pile to a chance of 1-5.  Why has that reverted to 1 per again?  It took me 3+ hours to pick up enough junk to craft four chibis.  And I got a doedicurus, a party rex, and 2 ankylosaurus.  That's really sad.  Can you possibly up the amount of items you get from piles, and the % of getting a new halloween chibi instead of all the old things us veteran players already have loads of?
