If you had trouble submitting art over the weekend

Posted by Rob - August 2nd, 2010

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.

Grab a cross. Those Ghosts of Aborted Fetus art are persistent.

"I see dead art....."


Have you figured out why the full list of art reviews a user makes don't come up when you click the link?

I fucking love you Rob.

code my babies

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

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.

lmfao at the last part... that sweet old alzheimer-lady, eh...

also, here's another voting-bug for ya;
<a href="http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/rucklo/the-theft">http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/ru cklo/the-theft</a>

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:

I'm using FF only, last version afaik.

Don't you just love the feeling after crushing a bug?


You could've done some overtime this week-end :P

You rule.

Sounds like a handful!

@rucklo, The same thing happened with luis' NG london meetup art piece, still can't vote, although I don't know If the staff disabled it.

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!

Even more scarrier than the Ghosts of aborted fetus art:
Unclosed public class{

You need to get your shit together sir.

Actually, there is still dead art in the portal.

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

Job's a good 'un.

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

well that explains why my art submision was getting fucked up
