When did you last see a Bellessarian home available?

Are you using an auto-refresh add-on or manually refreshing?  Actually, in either case, since a release is typically all snapped up far less than 30 seconds (even less than 15 seconds the majority of the time), the odds are actually against most folks ever seeing a Bellisseria home except during the huge many-region releases.

100% manually by press F5 from my keyboard and sometime click on "Reload" the page.  I tried both.  I don't use auto-refresh at all.

Did you not see anything Bellisseria at all? Because that is plain odd. And not fair I am sure you are feeling!

The houses went in a matter of seconds as there were only 4 on that region the rest were house boats.

Only 4... That's why!  It went out so fast like a blink of eye.  But strange is I don't see any houseboats at all.  Odd.  So which means it is total random to everyone, not at the same time, I guess.

Maybe I refreshed the page while people already claimed before my eyes.  That's why I don't see nothing there.  Don't worry about me, honestly. 

Damn, it's boring not to have a house! lol

Did you refresh multiple times within 5-10 seconds?  I think someone once mentioned that these days the average time for an entire region to be claimed is about 7 seconds.  

Though even if your refreshes were a bit more than 10 seconds apart, given the abandons, if you are refreshing at release time, I'd expect you to maybe at least see one.

I hit F5 fast as possible.. I'd say about 2 to 4 seconds per page.  I guess I should film it to show you what I did.

I first saw the release on the hour and there was a problem again like with the Tusktooth release. The receipt would say there was an error and to select again.... Not the sold out option. Eventually that was sorted and it moved on and the homes disappeared but then I did see things abandoned after as I normally do. I wonder if this little glitch was related...

Someone actually went through Esplin after it released and checked the claimed times. Every house on Esplin was claimed in NINE seconds. It really doesn't give a lot of hope for those trying to get one...other than hoping for an abandon. I understand it will get better and the moles are working as fast as they can, but for now, lots of people not happy.

Wait, HoneyBear, they ALL showed exactly 9 seconds, or they were all within 9 seconds?

I managed to get a traditional but its in a rather blegh area, figured i'd play with it til Friday in hopes of a big release. The front faces a big rock wall, seriously right out the front door, hideous. and in back is a big field where moles left various animals and railroad parts.

Not totally surprised.  I had heard a while back that most regions were being fully claimed in an average of 7 seconds.  From some of the postings over the last few weeks it seemed like that might have been stretching out a bit, but it doesn't really sound like it now.

Millbank is a region we've mostly assumed is going to be for community stuff. That might be wrong, but it'd seem odd to leave a region empty in the middle otherwise. If that doesn't sound like your thing, you're probably not going to be happy in that house.

Oh, wonderful!  *says in a chirpy voice*  every parcel has its charm, is perfect for someone!

*turns away and bursts into helpless gigglling*

OK.  Eventually the moles might put a really magical garden in Millbank, which they remove once a month and replace with a market.  Or maybe a small amusement park.  But right now ....welll ... I agree. This parcel requires someone with a REALLY good sense of humor.  And possibly a whole zoo in their inventory.

Ohhhh lordy.  With the "view" out the front ... I mean ok, if you could plant things on the rocks yourself ... but always a blank stone wall .....that really is the icing on the cake .... well, it'll be a good place to practice furnishing, until the opportunity arises to try for something ... something ... else.

I know it isn't polite to say it, but: That wall is depressing, and I would also try for another one. The ruskus on the front, it will sure be something better there in time.

A brick wall treatment. Fountain and ivy. I used this to put a Mediterranean cafe in an industrial area.

Here's the shortest video what I am doing.

This is right but your mouse seems very slow - like the sensor might be slow. I know for every drop down click you are doing I've done two. In the time it's taking to drag the mouse to the dropdown my mouse is already at the list. Does that make sense? I don't mean to say you are too slow but the mouse is moving slower than others clicking away...thats all I can see that is different to what I do 

I do think its strange you saw nothing at all but I did notice less after abandoning. How long does your logout and login process take? Most people have theirs pre saved like the name of their house. My logout / login takes about 4 seconds. I guess I take about 15-20 seconds to do one round of refreshing. Counting slowly in my head (reliable method!) perhaps just some land page practice and a more sensitive mouse?
