v4 Bug Thread

NOTE: THE ORIGINAL POST HERE IS VERY OUT OF DATE

Do you think you've found a bug? Please post it here.

The new profiler is now using your vBulletin information. If you can't see your characters, it's likely because your username there was different than it is here (if that's not it, try clearing cookies before anything else). Send me a pm if you have a username discrepancy.

It's a feature!
  • My RPXP is gone! Yes - please read the announcements.
  • Posts going to moderation: sometimes, posts will be [automagically] evaluated to be spam and sent for moderation. Initially, all posts were being scanned (and one user in particular was singled out by the software...). This has now been adjusted to not apply to trusted users (almost everyone).

Other Issues
  • site rules and help need... help Our wonderful staff are working through these right now! send a PM to your favorite moderator if you see a problem
  • spoilerbutton doesn't handle special characters properly
  • weirdness with RPXP -- 'you can't give rpxp to the same post twice', and yet a) you haven't clicked on the post before, and b) it works after all; not sure this is going to be fixed -- probably caused by a combination of lag + ajax
  • announcements board a sticking place? 'I click on the link at the top of the page to return to the Announcements board from the thread (to view all of the threads), I instead return to exactly the same thread (rather like refreshing the page). So far this has only happened to me in the Announcements board and no others.' [note: this happens with Global Announcements, not the ones shown on the front page]
  • double posts when using quickedit (during high load times?) increased post flood time from 10 second to 30 seconds; hopefully this will help
  • no bbcode parsing in fieldset titles (low priority)
  • improve front page aesthetics -- subscribed forums 'squished'
  • private threads that one cannot see included when calculating read threads; also, private threads are listed in the last unread post column both in usercp and the favourites listing on the home page
  • RSS feeds problems
  • weird colour tag change here
  • spoilers on dark skins don't show
  • dice roller kind of half-interprets things like ad20+1, when it should ignore them or throw an error

Few minor things I have noticed:

the saros smily () picture isn't working in the post reply section (i.e: when you click the post rreply button and the smilies are on the right hadn side)

When I move my mouse around the page it seems to go glitchy, everything flashes white then turns normal after a split second

the images for the dice roller, fieldset etc button in the post reply are missing as well.

Same for the images for RSS feeds, create new thread etc on the main page

first roll of the dice...
Dice Roll:
(as this is an older post, these rolls are interpreted by the older (more basic) dice roller code)
d6+4: (4) + 4 Total = 8


sorry if you know about these and it is just a testing thing, but the main gripe is the glitchy screen (never happened on my computer before)

EDIT: The RSS feed thing is working now.

RPXP has been reset, I don't remember seeing it on the list of things done, but I'm assuming it is intentional.

The main page keeps flashing at me, (like the glitchy posting) probably because of the smilies :P

in the contacts and friends section I can't see any avatars, though IDK if this is intentional (I get a ticky box with the highlight "X's avatar) but meh

All in all, I like it I know there are faults that can be easily fixed once found. so please don't count this as the first spam post

Is there anyway we can change skins? I like the new one, but I prefer a lil colour in tha background

the images for the dice roller, fieldset etc button in the post reply are missing as well. I see these -- are they still absent for you?

Any thoughts on how to reinterpret dice rolls?

All smilies and RSS buttony things fixed.

Dice roller etc not fixed.

Flashing page: fixed! (thank you!) was happening on main page, not as far as I can remember anymore

I also noticed when I was on your profile that there were alot of X for missing pictures

Friends: better, I can see most of them, but some I can;t before they were just blank space, now they are boxes with a page in them saying (X's avatar)
(instead of just saying that when you hold the mouse on them)

EDIT: I thought the site was only open for CS and reds today?
I saw 6 members online (not all CS or red) and 34 guests

Sorry if I missed an announcement about that

If there aren't too many calamities that need my attention, they'll be working by tonight sometime.

I also noticed when I was on your profile that there were alot of X for missing pictures I don't have this issue; others?

Friends: better, I can see most of them, but some I can;t before they were just blank space, now they are boxes with a page in them saying (X's avatar)

EDIT: I thought the site was only open for CS and reds today?
I saw 6 members online (not all CS or red) and 34 guests they can get to the login page but no further; I missed disabling guests, and have done that now; I also just added an explanatory message to the error message they are getting; you may see them in 'who's online' even if they can't see anything but an error
thanks

it's not an active skin -- you can only access it because you are a super moderator -- just use figment for now

I can't seem to get graphics for any buttons to the right of the "code" tag, just a text block.

test
Dice Roll:
(as this is an older post, these rolls are interpreted by the older (more basic) dice roller code)
d20+2: (10) + 2 Total = 12


although clicking on the text seems to do the right thing.

I do not have a secret button anymore. that's going to make DMing tougher.

I don't seem to have an avatar picture. I was using one of the standard one from the DND online game library before.

AHHH!

That makes sense, all the avatars I cannot see are the old DnDOG game ones (shoulda noticed the link )

I can now see all the images for dice roller etc

Should I put the old ones in? Are there good alternatives right now? I never paid much attention to avatars.

You mean there was a bbcode [secret] tag shortcut above the reply editor? (sorry, I tend to just type the code out by hand, so perhaps I missed it)

RSS feeds worked for me previously when I was testing (e.g. on index page)... but not now!

Are they working for others?
