Confirmation to Re-place foundables

We are now unable to view the detail page of foundables that we are saving for the next prestige level.

When you have enough to place the foundable again, but would rather wait until you prestige the page so that the fragments carry over, you have to be very careful not to tap on that foundable’s sticker or it will place it again. Several times I have forgotten this and have tried to tap on a foundable to read the description or to check the difficulty level, and have accidentally used up my fragments.

Perhaps there could be a confirmation inquiry asking if you really want to place the foundable, or a query on whether you want to place the foundable or view it’s detail page?

If anyone else has already found a way around this, I’d love to hear how. Thanks!

    @kiheikid Aw, that’s really sad. Tom Riddle is an especially bad one for that to happen with. Isn’t it an awful feeling to realize it’s happened and wish you could just take it back?Hopefully they’ll change the way it works soon.

    I second that... It is really hard to loose fragments that way... Also description what are you actually doing wouldn't be bad, it would have prevented me to loose so many fragments when update came out (I prestiged foundables that already had green star beside it because I didn't know how new system works - and there were no official informations about until few days later)). So message saying: "You are about to prestige the already prestiged fragments. That means you will get points now, but fragments won't be transfered, once you prestige the whole page." Something like that...

    Aaargh! I did it again! I wanted to read the details of the Sword of Gryffindor and forgot that I couldn’t without placing the sticker. Used up seven fragments without meaning to. My fault but still very frustrating! 🤦🏻‍♀️

    The current implementation is very poor and could easily be improved

    I have been extremely careful and have not accidentally placed and image that I did not want to place yet. I value placing the image ASAP on gold more than I do the rewards from the chest.

    the other day I went to tap something that did not have a star there but it would not work, and during my furious tapping accidentally placed something I was saving fragments for😂 definitely frustrating

    Just did exactly this ^^ accidentally re-placed an image I didn’t want to place while scrolling. +1 to the pleas for a confirmation button

    Yes please of all the things we get confirmation buttons on can we please get another on for collected starred images?

    please 🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒

    At the very least, it would be nice if you had to tap the star / number yo replace instead of the image. Smaller target area AND I could still look inside at my stats.

    I read another user suggest a better UI would be for each image in a Registry Frame to be tappable to bring up a menu. Once you tap on that image, the next screen would show a close-up of the Foundable and some information that you could read on the Foundable. At the bottom of that page you could have a button to tap that would allow you to place the Image of that Foundable (if you hit the max Foundable Fragment count), or you could tap X and exit that menu, saving those Foundable Fragments for later.

    I like that because it allows you to see info about that foundable (ex. number seen, severity level, XP for placing, etc) without being forced to place it.

    @Bliznik that would also follow along the same vein of how we view our friends list if wanting to look at their ministry page or open/send gifts and how we can go into potions and review ingredients from the recipes. It might take a moment more to prestige, but i think it would be worth the extra step and less anrer over accidental prestiging.

    @Bliznik It would be even simpler to just have a pop up when you tap the image that gives you a choice to “View Details,” “Place Sticker,” or “Cancel.”

    Brilliant idea. View details, place sticker or cancel.

    Well, that’s four foundables I’ve placed accidentally, one due to confusion and the other three due to forgetting that I can’t view details without placing the foundable first. Sigh.

    @CeruleanGirl i think I’m at four as well. So frustrating! One was confusion when it first rolled out, one trying to scroll, one forgetting I can’t view details, and one accidental fat finger touch. Sigh.

    I must admit, I’m surprised this request hasn’t gotten a reply with the enormous amount of “likes” and overwhelming agreement. I really can’t see a negative to adding a confirmation button!

    *waves wildly* hey we found something we all agree on! Please halp us! :-D

    Aaarrgh! I just accidentally placed my Common Welsh Green fragments while trying to scroll up. 😡

    Please fix this!!!!!

    You seem to have terrible luck with this @CeruleanGirl. I hope they fix this.

    Like the rest, I've accidentally placed images that were already placed (like the Antipodean Opaleye dragon, not once but twice!!!) while scrolling through the pages. It's really too sensitive!

    I totally agree with the others who have suggested a prompt to check if we want to place image, check details or cancel. Most of us who started playing from the beginning have surpassed Rank 65 for the families and, for me, I'm only interested in prestiging the frames, not for family XP. The green star is quite useless. Bring back the faded images that get clearer with more fragments! I don't suppose there's a way for us to get back our lost fragments for images mistakenly placed?
