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.

It seems this has indeed been deleted?

I can still see two (almost) identical posts, both starting with "I was currently going through...". The second post includes the quoted comment, while the first one does not.
Am I really the only user who can see both posts? Well, then that's an even stranger bug, but it's still a bug.

I can see both posts too, one has you quoted the other comment is on it's own. I think when I first posted the comment two got posted at the same time. It has happened before, I assumed it was an error on my part where I have accidentally double clicked the post button.

Tour and events have some of problems. When I update an event some bands become as unknown bands.
And, for some reason, now appear the hour (00:00) of all events.

Can you try again please? Band linking should work now.

The # character turns into a fixed track number in the moment he saves the album and he cannot edit it either.
A few regular users and also staff members seem to have this exact problem right now, but most people won't even notice because the result looks almost okay.

So adding an album messes up the track list, but editing works fine?

Those two posts have almost 40 seconds between them. Are you sure the site did that?

I Know my phone has a tendency to freeze on the odd occasion when posting, it's a cheap crap phone anyway so until I get my old one fixed or save money for a better one I'm stuck with this thing to access the internet with. Maybe I posted the comment then my phone froze so I tried to repost it or something along that lines. I'm sorry if it was my doing or if I'm causing as any disruption.

If it was a repost, that wouldn't explain why the content is different. But there's enough of a time gap between the two that there's a completely different one in between (in the database).

No need to repost. I just haven‘t gotten to that issue yet.

I'm still waiting for a final and definite answer from one particular user, but of five users who have had problems so far that I know of, the bug occurred when adding albums and could be corrected by a subsequent edit. As far as I know, this bug only occurred on the first four days after the database update. Since January 19, all tracklists look fine, regardless of which user was involved.

Then I would consider it fixed until it reappears. I handled a lot of smaller issues that appeared in the logs during the first few days. Should it come back up, we can look at it again.

That should be fixed now. However, if you go in and re-publish them, they'll end up with today's date. You can give me a publish date for each of the broken ones and I can put those into the database manually.

The [ youtube ] [/ youtube ] (without spaces) tag does not work anymore for me seemingly. Does anyone else have this issue of embedding youtube videos here?

The YouTube player works perfectly fine with YT video ID's.
I assume you tried to embed the YouTube playlist you linked in the Seigmen thread? That's a totally different thing and not what this feature is intended for.

No, I know that playlists don't embed. I had tried to also embed one song, but now that I think about it, I think I had pasted the full url, not just the ID. Thanks for reminding me - My bad

Here's a weird bug: My album checklist is titled "F3ynman's Checklist". When I go to edit the list, the title immediately changes to only "F3ynman". When I manually change the title back to "F3ynman's Checklist" and submit it, it's back to normal. But whenever I click the "edit" button, the default title is only "F3ynman"

Not weird at all. Same bug as with musician nicknames earlier. I expect to see a lot of these for a while. I‘ll fix that tonight.

Sorry for bringing this up again, but I'm still pretty sure that the site is now prone to accidentally duplicated posts. Most users notice and delete their ghost comments themselves immediately, but still, I've seen six of these cases in the last few hours alone. Here's the most recent one.

Can confirm. Happened to me several times.

Occasionally, tho. Hard to tell when it's gonna happen

Okay, then I‘ll look at it. Anything you can tell me about the posts that duplicated? Andy and Starvynth were suspecting band tags causing a duplicate. Can you confirm that? I‘ve tried to reproduce this in my test setup during the weekend but was unable to make this happen even once.

Well, to be fair I never noticed a pattern. I believe that when the site/internet is slow it happens more frequently, but there are some times when the duplicates appear even when the speed is doing fine, so I don' really know...

Good catch. Fixing that almost killed the site earlier
It was actually all of the sidebar stuck on Jan 14. Only things that would update were news, interviews an reviews.
