Bug #7:

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.

Ace,

The Russians streams are completely dead. I think I know why.... Many people are likely using the streams to watch the NFL and NBA via such, killing revenue for the NFL Sunday ticket and NBA League Pass. Both sports are likely aware of such and they killed the Russian streams. However, some members of the women's tennis forum found other streaming sites with some being successful, for I tried one successfully. However, for me, I elected to subscribe to TC+, paid the $99 fee and at this point I'm satisfied with the coverage in addition to the fact that they are covering the entire women's Tour this year, save for 2 events, San Jose and New Haven, which will be covered by ESPN. Video quality is okay, tho' I think the quality is 720p level, as opposed to 1080p, imo, but the stream is stable and not subject to lag and fluxes at this point. On the women's forum thread on this, those who have subscribed to such are expressing satisfaction of the coverage thus far, plus they are able to see matches played that they missed, which are archived practically immediately after match completion, which is a godsend, like ESPN. So, you have options to choose how you wish to view the Tour this year, either ponying up the fee for TC+ or opting to use the streaming sites provided via the women's forum, as some have discovered.

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.

I failed to make D2F predictions, but that is something down the to-do-list; PGame (and Skan?) are more important.

Under normal conditions, the Skan would be open for submitting teams next week. How are prospects on that one?
It was not saving the scores. I fixed it last night. Should be ok for now... until a new bug shows up uninvited.

Ace,

Bug 4:

On the "Year-to-date Ranking" page for both Tours and all events, point ranking for the gamer leaders should be listed in descending order in the grid. At the moment point totals for gamers are jumbled (for the ladies, the men haven't played the Rd of 16 as yet).
Thanks....
Weird .. this forum software is very unpredictable.. That list is well sorted at my testing page:
http://tennisgamers.com/board/pdgame/ye ... r=WTA#Ttop
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).

Ace,
Re Brisbane:
In the Rd of 16 prediction page, Twit earned 2 points for his predictions, but his total is listed as "zero". Further, on the "Year-to-date-ranking" page on the grid for Brisbane, Twit doesn't have a score for the Rd of 16, has a -1 figure for the qtrs and the Total box and a positive # for "ump_Total" box (same issue as Cry' and Perdida, noted above). Thanks....
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.

Bug #8:

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. :(

Ace,

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?

Off topic:

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.

off topic
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.

Ace,

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? :lol:

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?
