If you had trouble submitting art over the weekend

8/2/10 by Rob

In fixing a persistent scoring bug in the art portal - which appears to actually, finally be fixed - I introduced a new bug that caused the art submission process to sporadically fail. Oddly, the aborted submission would appear on the browse page as an empty box when you turned on all the ratings. Anyway, the bug has been fixed, and the Ghosts of Aborted Fetus Art have been sent back to limbo.

So, if you submitted art over the weekend and it died, I'm sorry, but as it was killed before it could be baptized, its soul cannot be saved. You can, however, submit the same art again, and it will work. It will completely replace the one that died, so that you'll never think of it again, like when your old relatives die, and after you do all that perfunctory funeral stuff, you can rest easy knowing you never have to struggle through a phone conversation with that lady who forgets who you are but somehow doesn't lose your phone number or the desire to talk to you again.

How do I remove myself from a collaboration if I'm not the project leader?

I can't submit any art, all I get is a pop-up that says crop image. I crop it and it is still not working. Please help!

Did you add more PM filesize? I just noticed my PeMis grow much longer than it's ever been before, just as I was reaching the limit.

@TOAS:
Oh, maybe the toggle have been altered some way when I've been unscouted and then scouted again, or something similiar...? It seem to work, though, thanks! :)

you're not as cool as me Rob. ... that is a compliment believe it or not.


@ Rucklo:
Toggle the box which says "This is not a sketch" on and off.
If that don't work, PM an art mod, and they'll do the same thing.

Job's a good 'un.

Would you be interested in starting a doll line titled 'My little Stillborn'? I've been looking for a partner for ages and it looks like you might be the guy!

also, here's another voting-bug for ya;
http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/ru cklo/the-theft

can't vote on the amazing piece of artwork. Don't know if it have something to do with the fact that I've been scouted and un-scouted once or twice... same with thisone:
http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/ru cklo/jebus

I'm using FF only, last version afaik.


Why DID some art pieces end up with scores over 5.00 anyway? What was up with that?

8/2/10 Rob responds:

Concurrency issues - i.e., when two or more people voted on the same thing at the same time, the numbers got screwed up. I tried to solve it a couple different ways, but I was misunderstanding MySQL's concurrency rules, so it kept getting f-ed. But it would always take a long time for the problem to be noticeable. So, like a year later, I finally fixed it. Yay.
