All Tennis, All the Time
Wannadoo is back! However, he apparently has been here ere, inputting his picks and didn't return 'til today to discover that his selections for the women's and men's events didn't take. Doesn't remember his ladies selections, but for the men's events, Doha in particular, he had chosen Novak to win (uWP), Thiem for fmKO and Nishikori for fmKO in Brisbane, but it didn't register. So, Ace, he needs to have that corrected for him.
Re Brisbane, Wannadoo, (man...he's good) got bonus points for his correct prediction for Dimitrov over Millman. "However".....in the Rd of 16 prediction grid his point totals "zero", instead of 2 and in the point total grid he posts "-1" in the QF and Total boxes. Needs correction.....
alright.. those nasty bugs.. let's see.. where to start from...
Well, it would help a bit if the tennis fans would say a bit more about the problems.
Are you able to get to the page? Is the error happening when you are submitting scores, or simply entering them? Does the window crash, freeze, ... etc?
The old site was running a different version of php. So not only we have a new server, a new forum software, we also have a new php version.. And the new forum software is blocking things for security reason; many functions that used to work in the old forum are out. So ... patience.. it's gonna be fun a ride.
And please, don't try to run the Skan Contest, folks. The code has not been rewritten. It's still the same file from the old forum. Won't work here. We didn't just move to a new server with the same forum. That's what we've done in the past.
You'll get blank screens, an errors.... I see the logs full of errors from Skan contest pages. Until you see a link here that says 'Skan Contest', stop trying. There is no chance.
Thanks for the fine post. I forgot I had the Desktop version of the Russian Channel. That version works although it's listing fewer matches. Just watching Vekic vs Bertens. I might reactivate my ESPN subscription.
It was not saving the scores. I fixed it last night. Should be ok for now... until a new bug shows up uninvited.
Weird .. this forum software is very unpredictable.. That list is well sorted at my testing page:

It's a pain to get things working once I add the forum header. The font is all over the places no matter how I try to control it. Gonna be a ride. I miss the old forum already, coding-wise.
You are doing a great job, Ace!
Everytime I come to the site, it gets better and better
At some point, I will ask you to create a Hall of Fame where we can enter all the previous PGame-winners for each event, but that is - at this point in time - nothing more than a nice-to-have.
And if you come to that: don't bother to copy all the data from the old H.O.F.'s ; I can recreate them them (the naming of some was not perfect, anyway).

This issue has cleared up. Twit's stats look ok, if I am not misreading it.
Yeah.. We'll get there. For now, let's keep chasing the bugs.
This issue has also cleared up.
This pertains to you, Ace. In the Auckland QF you've posted your predictions. At the bottom of your prediction there is already a -1 notation for the "total" with the QFs not having commenced. The -1 total is also posted to the scoring grid in the boxes "QF" and "Total".
I see I got 4 points. But no -1 in any column.
This thing is crazy. We are not seeing the same data.
The "Reply Button" is needed badly.
Re your issue for the Auckland, are you saying that you didn't make the correction of what I reported as a bug, but the system just corrected itself?
On each post by a member to the right there is a "Contact" icon beneath the avatar with the # of posts, joined date, etc. Question: by clicking on such and filling in information to be sent to the contactee, does that automatically become a "notification" reflected in the header? If so.........oh.
1/ Maybe the errors was resolved as part of other fixes. I have not specifically been able to trace it.
2/ I think the member will receive a notification if he/she has selected to be notified.
Each member has a control Panel. The link is in the drop down list under his/her name in the Menu. In that control panel, the member can elect or not to receive emails, private messages, etc. I have to look but I think notification is one of them. .... or maybe it's tied to the email...
Yeah.. I miss that too. Some of those are codes that I added. They were all wiped out by the new forum software. Any custom code was shutdown. It only converted much of the database so members and messages are not lost. Everything else was wiped clean.
Will have to add those "Reply" links again.
They were weaved in the middle of their codes.. so no chance they could survive the sunami.
1). Re errors, so....you're saying the system is correcting the numerical errors on the grid "incidentally" to whatever you're doing to address the reported bugs encountered thus far?
If so, then why hasn't the "Leader Board" (Year-to-Date Ranking) page been corrected for both Tours, denoting the Gamers with the most point in descending order? It's still a jumbled mess.....
2). On this new site you've sent me 8 notifications thus far within 3 days (an all-time record). How did you send such? Private message, by the Contact icon to the right, or by the "Contact us" e-mail, noted at the bottom of the page?
