In the guestbook people keep asking me the same questions. Therefore I compiled this list of the most frequently asked questions.

So please check this list here before contacting me. Thanks!
Who is Abbie Starwatcher ?I'm a normal SSO player as everyone else and I have no business or personal relationship with SSO. So this is a strictly private website that I created because I liked to play SSO and that I maintain as a hobby.
On which server do you play ? Since when ? In which club are you ?I'm playing SSO since february 2013 on the second German server, also known as "Autumn Star". I'm member of the club "Silversong Eagles".
May I become your friend in SSO ?I'm sorry but my friend list is already full. And on principle I only accept friendship request after having had a real contact in the game.
How did you create this website ?Most data and pictures are taken from Renee Goldpaw's website "The Help Page for Starstable".
Following tools were used for the implementation of this database:
Where can I find a list of names for me and my horses ?The easiest way to get this information:
There's a table with a missing item/entry
Where do I find the best clothing / equipment for racing / championships ?There's no one single best combination for clothing/equipment. It depends on what skill points you want to focus/optimize on. Take a look at the optimising tables and sort on the skill points you want to find your optimized combination.
Where do I find the optimisation table for equipments ?After clicking on the menu symbol "optimising" you'll see the optimisation table for clothes. On the upper right side of the page you will find a link to switch to the equipment table view.
Something else is missing (not mentioned yet)
Something is not working !?
The table is empty, no data is loaded, or the page is displaying wrongFirst of all try to force reloading of the page, usually using the shortcut Ctrl-F5 (or Ctrl-Shift-R). If this doesn't help I recommend to delete the browser cache/history (shortcut Ctrl-Shift-Del) and then to try reloading the page again.
Finally, if the problem persists, please contact me by E-Mail or via Facebook and please provide some information about the browser (Firefox, Chrome, ...) and the operating system (Windows 10, Mac OS X, ...) you're using.

Something else does not work or is displayed incorrectly
Something is wrong !
An entry/item in a table contains incorrect informationOf course, there may be mistakes in texts/entries. Moreover, there are quite a lot errors in the game itself! For the database, I always use the original texts.
Nevertheless, if you find an error, please send me a note by E-Mail or via Facebook and tell me as precisely as possible what item you are talking about and which information exactly is wrong.
Something I don't understand / how does it work ?
How can I filter a table ?
- The selection lists let you filter the table by site, shop name and/or item type (z.B. "legware"), after this only items corresponding to these filter settings will be displayed.
- After selection of a color box only items having this selected color will be displayed. If you selected multiple colors, they will be combined by "OR" (non-exclusive), e.g. all displayed items will have at least one of the selected colors (e.g. blue or green). But if you switch to "AND", displayed items must have all of the selected colors (e.g. blue and green).
- Any text entered in the text search field will be searched in all columns of the items, thus only items containing the search text will be displayed (e.g. because of a matching title or description).
How can I sort a table ?
Note: you can sort multiple columns at the same time by holding the Ctrl key pressed while clicking on the column title.
I don't understand the optimising table !The optimising tables are really more difficult to understand. Anyway, here's my attempt to explain them in a few words:
At the moment there are more than 50 billion ways to combine tops, legware, shoes, etc., so it does not make sense to list them all. If we want to optimise our clothing, then we want to find those combinations that sum up to highest sum of skill points.
Many clothing items have the same skill point combination (e.g. besides the "red baseball jacket" there are 7 more tops that have the skill points Ride +8, Jump +4, and Command +1), hence they are mutually exchangeable without altering the skill points. So if a certain clothing combination (including the red baseball jacket) has a skill point total of Ride +25, Jump +12, Command +5, and Care +3, then you could replace the red baseball jacket by any of the other 7 tops without altering the sum of skill points of the cloting combination.
Therefore all those combination variants are pooled together and displayed as one single row in the table, showing one of the combinations as an example. By clicking on you will be shown all other cloting items that would result in the same skill point total.
If you still have question (and you may ...), please contact me, Falls ihr noch Fragen habt, bitte kontaktiert mich, preferably by Facebook.
