Site and/or forum bugs or things not working

Still can't, the attachments seems to have some problems. Sorry for the spam posts in the Doom Demo thread, this is due to failure of posting demo.

I was speaking to TimeOfDeath. I'm aware that attachments and custom avatars aren't working. I will delete your posts for now.

You're going to have to give me some examples.


Actually, now that I've tested it out, I can't quote forumgoer glenzinho. Quoting any of his posts results in a new post box with no quote.

The problem was that he is using ´ (U+00B4: ACUTE ACCENT) instead of ' for an apostrophe. It has been worked around.

There may be other characters that mess up quoting. Please report any more specific posts where quoting results in a blank reply box.

Props to Bloodshedder and whoever else for spending their Christmas fixing this. Just sayin'.

Can you comment while logged out? I can't see any obvious problems. Try logging out and back in?

I tried logging out & in, deleting all cookies, and commenting while logged out but I still can't comment. I'm using Chrome Version 23.0.1271.97 m. I don't know if anyone else is having a problem, since people are commenting fine.

No problem for me, I use Google Chrome too. The only problem is the attachment files which can't be uploaded.

This one should be annoying enough to fix for a while.

Hello Bloodshedder,

I have just taken notice of the problems the site is affected with and now see that my difficulties with logging in are shared by other members. I assume that my account (luckily) has not been deactivated due to long time sleep.

As I can write this, at least the log in problem looks to have bettered.

Thank you again and please excuse any extra work that was caused by my calling for help I have sent you by mail.

Best wishes and nice holidays to you and all other Doomers.

Peter

I couldn´t quote yesterday either and had to do it manually. Not sure about the apostrophe, I´m using a portuguese keyboard at the moment.

TimeOfDeath and Memfis: tell me if you can see any of the debugging messages I've added when voting on /idgames.

Yes, when I try to vote on the ones I linked, it says "The system thinks you've already voted on this file". I don't think I have though, and if I close the window/tab and load the same /idgames page again, it lets me vote and comment (but gives me the same message when I do).

Seconded. Somebody third this.

Bloodshedder's first posts seem to have slightly messed up dates (which creates an interesting time paradox).

Yes, I see three "test" messages.

Test reviews aren't what I meant. The debug messages will show up below or where the review box is. Where are you seeing 'test' reviews?

Oh. Yes, I see the "The system thinks you've..." message when I try to vote on ?id=13083.
"test" reviews are here:

Memfis: Well... I don't know what to tell you. I was able to hijack your cookie (no, I don't do this regularly) and post a comment on that file just fine.

I see the message after having voted/commented, which I think shows that it's working as intended?

I didn't get the message before voting/commenting, and it didn't stop me from voting/commenting.

That must be a new feature to prevent people from voting multiple times, right? Was that added when the logged in/color-coded reviews were implemented?

There were always preventions against voting multiple times. In your case, it seems to be happening without actually inserting your vote into the database, and I haven't been able to figure out why yet.

Ok, this is getting interesting!

The comment I'm trying to make:

Cool 1994 style map, I didn't like the teleporter system (too complex for my small brain) but overall it was very fun to explore, I liked the music and the new teleportation sound.

Okay, it should be working now. I'm not sure how it ever worked without the string being escaped, but I didn't write the original code...
