As announced in the news, we kindly ask you to report anything odd about the site that you think is new or want to bring up again here.

There are a few issues we already know about.

  • The search function sometimes returns less results than before
  • Lists may have to be-relinked and some band tags may have stopped working


Feel free to bring anything else up here. We'll look into it and fix as necessary.

I've got two:

A mild one: the "search topic" function in individual threads does not work. I've tried numerous searches for words and phrases I know are in the thread I'm in, and each time the search returns no results (and so I read the previous four pages to make sure my issues hadn't been brought up already, instead of searching for key words).

A very dangerous one, if you're irresponsible like Radu: the "preview" button on the submission page (for articles at least, I haven't tried reviews/news/etc.) actually deletes the text. You can successfully view the preview, but while on that page, if you click "back to editing", it brings you back to the submission page with an empty box where the article text should be. If you click "submit", it gives you an error saying that you need article text and again boots you back to the submission page.

Figures, the staff highlights article is one of the very, very few things I ever type directly into MS instead of in Word. Good thing I copied the text first just in case.

I've got one in connection with the editing of the existing tours: when I try to add support bands to the existing tour list, there's no change after the submission. Example: Overkill European tour - I've tried to add two support bands, Heathen and Exholder.

The former is fixed. That latter I just can't seem to reproduce. No matter if I edit an existing article or start a new one, I always end up with the text in full just where it should be if I click back to editing.

Oof. There's a whole bunch of shit broken with tours it seems. I fixed a logging issue, too where logs would be written with wrong parameters, then never shown but also never deleted, too. If you can, I'd appreciate if you could have a look at the logs every now and then and check if they show what you're expecting.

Adding and removing bands works now.

I edited and added bold tags to Yaniv's picks in the Highlights article, and, although 'back to editing' seemed to work fine, the changes were not visible when it got published (I was surprised that it got published instead of sent to author for approval, which is what normally happens). I tried again and figured out that the reason the changes weren't visible was that when I got back to the editing page, the changes I made were not there. Then I tried to publish from the preview page, without going back to editing, and I got the error message that SSUS mentioned that "Article text is required". However, the entire original text was there. I have now tried to publish it without previewing it, and it has been sent to the author (SSUS) for approval.

I have the whole text saved, of course, so that our editor doesn't get a stroke.
