Simtropolis 8.1.x - Bugs & Issues Report Thread

370 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!

With a completely new forum software, it's time for a brand new bugs thread...

When reporting issues, it always helps to be as descriptive as possible, such as by including the following info:

  • A summary of the issue.
  • Screenshots / videos to highlight what's wrong (with annotations if applicable).
    Images are best uploaded to an online image host, and the direct link pasted into the editor.
     
  • Your system info (e.g. browser version / operating system, device type).
  • When the issue started, or how often it can be reproduced.
  • Any error messages shown?


This can help us to reproduce the problems, and then work on finding solutions. ;)

Thanks all for your help!


Known bugs and issues can be found below in the following post. We'll work and aim to get these fixed ASAP.

Known Site Bugs & Issues  (Listed in estimated priority, with more major issues highlighted)
 

  • An issue with inline thread page loading on some browsers. [More info]
     
  • Performance issues with the site Leaderboard feature. [More info]
     
  • Formatting issues on some previously uploaded STEX files. This causes the page layout to be broken, such as moving the download button from its intended position. [For example]
     
  • Minor formatting issues on STEX categories (e.g. link colour, font size). This could possibly be related to the dropdown menu issue.

  • An issue with CJ entries occasionally not shown in the correct order on the index list. [More info]

  • Status updates are disabled by default for new members (in profile settings).
     
  • For homepage feature headlines, capitalisation is only shown on the first letter of a word (E.g. "SC4" is displayed as "Sc4").
     
  • On the STEX, the "Top Downloads" and "Top Submitters" sidebar blocks show incorrect totals (currently disabled).

 


Recently Resolved Issues  (See spoiler below)

Spoiler
  • FIXED!  Attachment images are being duplicated when posted or edited. [More info]

I'm also getting the EX1054 issue. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a pattern to the errors, they just occur randomly whilst browsing the forums.

 

Edit: Seems to always happen when opening the forums for the first time, navigating to them from the homepage.

Yup same here, the navigated forum shows up when you hit refresh.     Seems to be more when you are exiting back up the forum tree rather than going in...

I have been getting Error Code EX1054 fairly regularly as well, both when first navigating to the forums an also when navigating up and down the forum trees.  This error appears both on Win 7 IE11 and with Android mobile web.

I consistently get the error on the main forum page, but strangely the two featured threads still show. Might want to check there, just to be safe.

I basically get the error on every page when I load it first. After a reload, it's gone.

I get the error message on every forum page unless I reload. Oddly enough when I am not logged in I have fewer problems.

"Sorry, there is a problem

Something went wrong. Please try again.

Error code: EX1054"

Not a minute ago, Win7, IE 11

Also, I've just tried to swat your fly sig, well done on making it both annoying and believable :P

Trying to choose a new GIF avatar doesn't seem to work. It's saying this type of fily is not allowed (standard .gif)

Also, what happened to those stats showing top posters of the day, all-time posters etc.? Are they gone forever?

Things have improved slightly after that last break.  The response time for me on a broadband wired connection is very, very good indeed.

At this time we have

--- www.simtropolis.com ping statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 5 received, 0% packet loss, time 8116ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 25.209/32.486/36.563/3.912 ms


I think this can be described as a hot connection.  33 ms is about 10 times faster than the expected worst case for shared sites.  Well done.

As mentioned in my tweet, there was a network incident last night at around 11:30 PM EST at the datacenter. They were attempting to offload network traffic while they resolved the issue and during that time we had intermittent connectivity. They did resolve the issue a couple hours later.

Currently, I'm not seeing any issues with chat... try again?

      Got some ideas?
      Here's a place where you can recommend any improvements to Simtropolis. 
      It's about time we had one of these. Even though the site continues to develop, we'd love to hear your thoughts on how it can be further refined and made better for everyone. Whether it be a simple layout/design tweak, or a completely brand new feature, post away in this thread!
      While we can't promise everything will be possible or implemented, each idea will be read and considered. I'm sure you'll appreciate there are limitations, both technically and financially.
      To report any issues with an existing site feature, or something not working as intended, please instead use the Bugs Thread.
       
      Guidelines
      For clarity, please keep one idea per post. Double posts are acceptable if you've more than one idea at once.
      Note: To prevent successive replies from auto-merging, you may need to wait 5 minutes.
        Give a subheading, describing briefly what the idea is.
        Explain the idea -- it helps to give as much detail as possible. Pictures or diagrams are acceptable, but not required.
        Why would this be of benefit to the community?
        If you value anyone's idea, please Like it to show your support. This helps to give a rough indication of how well an idea is received.
        If commenting on an idea, please quote/copy the subheading so it's clear what is being discussed.  
      Progress Status
      Once processed, ideas will be tagged with one of the following:
       
      NOT PLANNED -    The idea is appreciated, but at this stage, is not feasible to implement.
        INTERNAL REVIEW -    We like the idea, and will pursue whether it's currently feasible to implement.
        PLANNED -    We have decided to implement the idea, and are finding the best ways to go about it.
        IMPLEMENTED -    The idea has been added as a new site feature!
      This will change depending on ongoing progress with implementation.
       
      Thanks all!

      Index of Display Name Changes 

      Display name changes can sometimes create confusion, especially when the new name is completely unrelated to the old one.
      Since there have been a number of recent changes, I think it might be useful to have a resource where these can be documented.
      For general information about name changes, please see the FAQ in the following post.

      If you're aware of a change that isn't listed, or have recently changed your own, please post below and I'll add you to the table.

      The table below lists the known changes, along with the dates and original names. For those where the date is uncertain, a reasonable estimate has been made (based on their posts referring to the name -- e.g. quotes). For users who've changed their name more than once, the "Other Changes" column provides these details. The links open a document on Google Drive, where this info is presented.

       Reminder:   Due to the site upgrade, remember that display names are now the same as usernames! 
      As Dirk explained here, this replaces the previous system, where your registration username was always used to login. If you've changed your display name, you should always login using the current one. This may explain if you're experiencing difficulty logging in.
