Please use this thread to report your findings on whatever you think is buggy on the new server.

As announced in the news post, this is a place to collect actual bugs and issues, not ideas yet and also not general issues with site functionality. Just problems that weren't there before the move but are now

As you can read above, there are still some issues with the correct depiction of artist names, band names and album titles as far as special characters are concerned. So if your favorite folk metal band is suddenly called Ár?tí#ir Líf§ins instead of Árstíðir Lífsins, then something is wrong and it should be reported here. Please use that thread only for band profiles.

It's a good idea to start with your favorite bands or your own user lists. Everything that is displayed wrong in your profile or in your list(s), and everything that is not linked anymore and does not adjust itself by a new "submit", has to be corrected manually.

So this is your chance to boost your community points a little. You can submit corrections via the respective edit function and they will be processed ASAP. If you already have the necessary community points, you can to do it all by yourself.

Please note that you will occasionally stumble across albums that are not linked properly anymore in user lists even though everything may look absolutely correct, including the band's name. You won't even see any obvious mistake while editing the album. In this case it is usually sufficient to save the album without actually changing anything, the database will handle the invisible (but necessary) correction by itself in the background.

If you have any questions or problems in this regard, please send me a short PM.

Thanks a lot in advance for your help in keeping the database accurate and tidy!

Tiny visual bug, I don't even know if it's a bug or a feature
When rating albums (choosing which star to use), all the stars appear yellow instead of the former red>orange>yellow>green
When the vote is inputed, the color of the number is back to normal (if I give a 9, the 9 is green as intended)

Also, if you go to bands>bands>simple list, the list you get is messed up in two places. First one in the As, second one in the E's (although I don't know if anything can be done for that one)

Good catch. It's actually a Ž and the letter Ū and I guess it will be fixed soon.
The uncapitalized e is totally ok, though. It's there because of earthtone9.

Yeah I wasn't too sure about the uncapitalised e, it looks weird in the middle of the E section but it's not really a problem

Tbh, this is the first time I'm seeing this site. I have no reservation whatsoever to make the sorting case-insensitive if there's no protest.

Fixed. It's a hacky fix though. We'll see how long this holds.
