    Default Guide: How To Put That Dove In Your Profile


    Some people seem confused by this, so I thought a guide would be appropriate.

    Step 1.

    You need to get to the Quest where the Quest Master actually tells you to put the Dove in for you to do the Quest. You should get to this point fairly quickly, in one or two days.

    Step 2.

    Go to the left of the screen and click 'Profile'.

    Step 3.

    Look for a link that says 'Edit Profile' (it's below your name) and click that.

    Step 4.

    Look at the 'Medals' section on the bottom. It should look something like this:

    Medals
    Category Rank Week BB-Code
    Beginner's protection [#0]
    Step 5.

    Now type that code into your profile. This is where it's easy to mess up. Remember to put in the brackets, and use a zero instead of an O. If you can't type brackets, copy-paste the code. It's right here. --> [#0]

    Step 6.

    After putting it in, go to the bottom and click 'Save'. Your quest is done! Check with the Quest Master.


    Step 7.

    Should you ever want to get rid of the dove, you can take it back out by going back into your profile and deleting the code, after you finish the quest that requires it. The dove itself doesn't give you any protection, it is only for the quest and for display.

    Addendum: A new guide with pictures has been posted, by DTD.

    Step One - Click Profile as per photo



    Step Two - Click Edit Profile as per photo



    Step Three - Putting in the code, and saving



    Believe me, if my girlfriend was able to figure out how to do this herself, you should be able to do it. If you still are unable to figure it out, believe me, you're beyond help.

    You don't have to get to that part first, but you can if you wanted to. I put my dove in way before I even started the first quest.

    ... anyone with a soldier can check when your bp runs out in 5 seconds, removing the dove is kind of pointless if thats the only reason. It takes about as much time to click the profile link as it does to click the send soldiers link.

    Quests are useless but they're the only way to get the bonuses that you used to get with the "messages from the homeland."

    As for the dove...it's really obvious and easy to use. I didn't realize that people didn't know how to do it. They fail.

    Please click on the eggs when they aren't gray smudges. It would be a shame if they died.

    I already knew how to make the dove on my s2 account which I started a month into the server and therefore well before they installed the questmaster. Saw someone mention how to do it on the forum someplace. But I'm confused about this part. There is no "medals" section under "edit profile" for me, unless I have contracted a mysterious eye disease that filters out that word. Have you won any medals in Travian? That might explain why you've got that feature and I don't. I totally fail at winning medals.

    As best I can tell Server 5 has doves and no quests. I know I'm not the sharpest hunk of cheese in the world but how do I get a dove?

    You would be surprised. This is the most common question that I get by far as Support.

    As for people that are still confused after reading this, they either need to re-read it far more carefully or pay better attention in Reading class at school.

    are you serious? all you need to tell them is type [#0] into their profile, nothing else. All the extra steps just complicate a simple answer

    It's various issues that they have; some people don't put in brackets, others just don't understand. They can't figure out how to put it in the profile seems to be the most common. I had a guy a few days ago that couldn't figure out he had to hit "Save" when he was done.

    That's exactly why I took mine off,Nichts
    Also this thread is real fail. The game tells you what to do. Instructions are for reading, I promise you Travian did not make it for its health. Perhaps they didn't have their dose of Vitamin C this morning. I am pretty new and found no trouble doing it. Hell I put it in without the brackets, I put just #0 in at first, Ill admit but I didn't realize the dove was a difficult aspect of this game. Ahahaha.

    There are some people who just don't get it. You'd be surprised. It never happened to me, but I've read enough questions about this in the question forum to get an apprecitation for this guide. Who knows, people might look at this guide before posting another question on the dove.

    Do not underestimate the power of confusion and computer ignorance. I made this thread sarcastically, but people have actually used and needed it.

    Also, see this thread and argue with the person there about whether or not people need help.

    That Dove is the Harbinger of Doom.It's a nice tool that tells everyone in your 13X13 when to send in the attack. I would recommend deleting it once you get the reward from the quest.

    OK
    the part that made it hard was, first off, I typed #0 without brackets in the description. That didn't work, so by the time I'd typed #0 in everything I could think of, I was looking for something specific that the instructions were calling "your profile". I mean I changed my village name to [#0]. I think in all the permutations of what "your profile" could mean, I just didn't happen to type [#0] in the description.

    Second, I tried searching the forum, and besides the 6 letter code graphics generated SUCK and you can't tell what they are, it requires 4 or more keywords but only takes the first keyword. AKA the forum search is broken and I had to manually find this entry in the forum.

    Then I read all the "please don't make multiple forum entries for this quest" and follow that thread into here. You know I've been on countless forums and read the whole "you must be an idiot not to understand" bashing from people who are probably 10 years younger than me, but the fact is - the instructions were incomplete. Say "your profile's description". I think that us people who look specifically at the words and didn't get lucky the first time are confused for a reason. Please don't flaunt your intelligence because you happened to get lucky, or your girlfriend happened to get lucky, the first time you typed it in.

    And if it's the most common support question, please clarify your instructions, instead of repeating the same guide 3 times and picking on the intelligence of several people you haven't clearly explained something to the first time. And please fix your forum.

    and also, with the girlfriend repsonse, "even my girlfriend could do it"
    what are you saying, that your girlfriend is stupid because she's a girl? so, I must be as stupid as your stupid girlfriend? tell her that and see if you get any for the rest of the month
