Re: New Website - Bugs

WEW XP!

When you go to do a new comment you get taken to a page which is literally your picture and the comment, to then have to press the back button to view the website again. (Taken to http://www.gamegrin.com/Comment_Controller/addcomment)

At the top it says I'm level 0, but my profile says level 12. Eitherways, I was like level 4.

Where's my XP?

New comments don't appear in the gamer feed.

UNSURE: There's no titles for articles, so, I can't quickly glimpse and scroll either this is a bug or a stupid change.
(This is for NEWS, titles show on other catagories.)

Pictures, videos etc as a preview in media for articles show up small and don't take up the entire box.

Thanks for the quick reports. It's still settling in a bit and XP will be transferred shortly. I'll double check the other items when the rest is settled in.

Re: New Website - Bugs

Unsure: Directory is a massacre and looks horrible.

Search button is broke, I searched for Cardboard and it took me to the home page.

Latest on gamegrin at the very bottom lists no items titles

What is profiles at the bottom of homepage?
EDIT: Only appears when redirected to homepage from search page

On my profile it tells me I wrote 64 articles but does not allow me to see them when I click on "all" or "media"

Re: New Website - Bugs

On the home page at the bottom there's a link that says smite and it takes you to
http://www.gamegrin.com/about-us/smite/about
and thats just a massacre aswell on the similar games to smite - If they're meant to be links they're not

There's no titles in the admin cp for stuff

Can only see new catalog on my profile (think dawson is pissing about with that tho)

Logged in via http://www.gamegrin.com/Security/log..._LoginForm_tab to then be taken to a blank page (got there by clicking login with no details, then tried just email)

EDIT: No... Just cant login over-all not even with the small box anymore.

In regards to: "Pictures, videos etc as a preview in media for articles show up small and don't take up the entire box." - Videos are a small box and msut be clicked and it takes them to youtube page not play the video.

Re: New Website - Bugs

Comments made via facebook seem to be missing, I think..

Eg
http://www.gamegrin.com/articles/how...ital-and-disc/

I commented on this in reply to Acelister, and Ryan aka RGDfleet references that comment, but it's not there. Also, Rash commmented on the one below, but no comment there either.

http://www.gamegrin.com/news/new-bat...es=og.comments

(From my understanding of techy stuff [ie, 0], it looks like commenting via fb has been removed. Could be to do with that.)

Fixed, you'd beaten me to running the fixer to switch XP to the new system.

Haha, unintentional feature is the preferred term. But yes, that should now be fixed. Definitely would have been a stupid change if not

That's actually a part of the search page, would you be able to screenshot that for me?

Moving this to work in progress, will remove it from the site for now.

No idea where that page has come from. Deleted.

So this one is the big one right here, Facebook comments are gone, as they were too inconsistent with notifying the site whether a comment had been made or not, there was an issue with "first posts" on an article where because we weren't notified, the site wouldn't generate XP for people, along with other issues. Now, people can comment anon, with a forum acc, or with a Facebook account (by logging in with Facebook). And I'm hoping that this clears a load of the shit up with it!

I'm going to look into how/if I can retrieve those missing comments into our system, but I'm not sure how well that will go at the moment. Watch this space.

Note that if the comment is missing, you still have your XP for it regardless

Well, I didn't get XP for any of the few comments I've made, but I'm not so bothered because unless there's stuff for tiny amounts of points I'll not be able to use them anyway, I don't comment enough

We're ironing out the new system for this, so look out for updates later. Some exciting stuff coming that way

My name. Not sure how it shows to others, but to me it says JK Ferret <Real Surname>, and I'd rather not have that information there (Yes, I know that info is on fb, but I actually want my real name there)

That's only visible to you on your profile page and only visible on your public page if you write articles:

http://www.gamegrin.com/u/view/jk+ferret
http://www.gamegrin.com/u/view/djdawsonuk

Your user account only shows your surname, as your first name is "JK Ferret", hence why it's appearing as you mentioned :P
