Post by Jake »

A place for folks to report bugs, anomalies, and other weirdness for us to look into, and also for feature requests.

I'm not sure if I'm the only one experiencing this bug, but the standalone mini window to check/set status gives a 404 Page Not Found error on the mini window when the link is clicked to bring up the window.

I use Firefox as my primary browser, version 65.0.1 (current version).

Not just you. Thank you for letting us know.

When I updated how this looks / works, I forgot to change the mini URL from my test page to the proper live page address when I was done. That's fixed now and it should work properly.

I gave the feature a test, and it works perfectly now.

Thank you!

I'm not sure if this is a bug or if something was changed. I noticed, recently, that I am no longer able to edit posts that are not my own in Memories and Other Dances. This SN is listed as the primary mod for the folder. Only delete and report functions are available for posts made by other SNs. I tried the Moderator Control Panel and no editing option seems to be available there either. Any suggestions?

Not a bug. Reviewing configuration settings recently, we realized there were some unintended permissions, so the moderator privileges were tightened down a bit.

Feature Request:

Maybe this is better suited as feedback to the sport coords, but I'd love to see an addition to the Records pages to include Diamond/Overlord/Archmage Stats. Not sure how hard it would be to query, but if it's a pain, I might be willing to help gather/compile data. Would love to see some info around longest reigns/defenses/etc you know? Not sure what Diamond stuff might include since it's not defendable, but don't want 'em to feel left out lol.

Just a thought!

This is the right place, since it would require some coding effort. Kal will probably have to chime in with his thoughts on how to go about pulling this data.

When I threw that all together I started with the barons. I looked at OL and sadly there is a ton of information lacking in the early days. Defense records don't exist and in some cases the reign dates are just best guesses. We don't even have a standings record that proves Gondar was actually the first person to make warlord and be granted OL as a result. So, I just skipped that and decided to do the secondary titles in each sport because the data was available. Given the lack of early day information for OL, and no real records for the Diamond that aren't pretty easily spotted on the Diamond's page, that leaves Archmage as the only one that looks to have full information and an interesting data set, but it didn't feel right just doing 1 of the 3 major titles.

So, that's my reasoning for not having it in place and sorta why I don't have it on my radar as a project. What it would take to get done though would be to go back through the entries for each of the title holders and add meta data strings to the entries. Using a baron history for example (and there are slight differences in how this works between sports, but I won't get into that), each entry in the history we store in the database begins with a meta data character that tells my scripts how to count them: eg: {C} indicates won by challenge, {T} won by tournament, {D} won a defense, {F} forfeit the title, etc. Each activity for each holder entry would need to be encoded. It's really not the best way to do it, but this all started before we took over the site, so we had limited access to make data base entries into a schema that really wasn't designed for this sort of thing.

Got it! That makes sense, thanks for the insight!!
