1. you can get to a valid page by clicking the "n bits" button in the sidebar, but if you go straight to the URL it's a 404.

2. there is a broken image link with text "" title="download sample"/>" to the left of each bit in the list.

3. Minerscale already submitted an actual entry somehow. it's included in the bit counter, but not in the bit list.

10:13 <Minerscale>
10:13 <Minerscale> I used this form

that's the form you get if you click "submit a sample" on the bit list page, but you get to from the "Submit Bit" button in the sidebar.

also, not sure if this is related, but sample plays don't seem to be giving samplist points.

hmm, I think I know what's happening now, since I autofav'd one of my bit entries without ever playing it. it's counting a page load as a play (instead of when you actually hit the play button). the plays I saw were self-plays, thus the lack of samplist points.

votez have all 5 voting categories but default to the highest digit entered for just 1 number

*edit* i bet this is because we have "entries" already

Hey, not to add to any stress, but this bit entry of mine ended up giving me mixist points and being categorized as a remix. I'd hate to miss out on the actual compo just because it thinks I already submitted a remix!

It might be because I uploaded it as an uncompressed file, but since i did it through the "submit bit" form I don't know why that would matter??

post #87814 :: 2017.07.12 10:58pm
hopefully puke can find the time to go into the DB and fix the miscategorized entries before the bit period ends. that's usually how this type of thing gets sorted out. there are several other entries with the same issue...

is there a way to delete it? if there is then something's even more screwed than we thought. for now i'd either just a) do nothing or b) resubmit the sample using the "correct" form. don't know whether it will be easier for puke7 to reclassify these "remixes" or just delete them. i wouldn't touch the "incorrect" form again, in case submitting multiple entries with it does something Bad.

puke7 pls halp

edit: just barely xposted with xterm

edit 2: i would definitely just do nothing (i.e. don't submit a duplicate sample) until puke either weighs in or restores order and balance to this world

1) couldn't figure out cold hitting the sample submit URL, but fixed it where the link was wrong

2) removed the "broken image" thing - I hate this view; should be replaced with the modern Entry List view

3) I updated all entries in this battle thus far to be samples instead of remixes

Everyone should vote on ENTRIESSS!!!

I know it looks screwy, but bits only have one vorting category -- I'm not sure why the vote form is appearing as it do, but I have very limited dev bandwidth while on vacation you n00bs!! :P

i'll get you your boons back
folks maybe should quit submitting samples and start vorting on the ones we got?

post #87870 :: 2017.07.13 10:13pm
Ohh, whoops. I read this too late. Botb just took 924 boons from me for a single bit as well.

Darn, I had a whole bunch of samples prepared. Well, I guess I can keep those for the next Detroit battle.

I'm really looking forward to the remixing part :)

931.00 boons well spent.

tbh, you could probably keep the whole rising boon count per sample thing as a feature, to make sure you don't get too many samples. :p I dunno, I'm tired and still trying to vote ahh

i also read this too late, whoops (sorry)

edit: please don't make this a feature, it might stop n00bs (and even not-so-n00bs) from uploading good samples because they don't have boons at all

I'd like apologize for the rollout of this battle. I thought it had been a year since the last one; not 3.5 years. I had no idea how broken things were, but we're getting through it!

@irrlicht\ project - I gave you 750b which isn't all of it, but I didn't know other n00bs were gonna do similar and I'm not returning all of them!

i think the most important thing to get sorted is fixing sample badges where the hell is my sample badge at!?!?!
Level 23 Mixist
post #88377 :: 2017.07.22 9:59am
Yeah, I don't know how the whole sample thing works in regards to badges, but I didn't get any sample badge progress for any of these.

Not complaining, just wondering if it's supposed to be like that.

Also, the gold guy for the best bit doesn't show up on my profile page, while the silver one from the "Detroit wuw" category does.

@Savestate I might be misreading but I definitely have progress from my Detroit X kazoo sample:

I'm guessing that score scale was reduced for samples to prevent this from happening again:

weird; i know detroit VIII samples were out of 7. maybe this was changed when badges were implemented and then changed back for the reason ktcmoop stated? detroit is full of mysteries
