There's a maintenance run each day which goes through and adjusts. Dunno the explicits but this is inline with other people's expressed experience under the same circumstances. :)

So no matter what I do, I can't get my avatar to show properly. I've uploaded a picture of the handsomest guy I know, but no dice. ;)


Also, I can clear my banner but if I upload another it just reverts to the one I had before (even after refresh).

I brought the first part of this to their attention a few responses ago and they were able to fix mine and possibly others. Apparently they didn't fix what actually causes this if it is still going on. It's a bit annoying if you actually like changing your avatar to fit your current tastes.

For the game Monster Hunter Now on Android, could the Solo tracks with submissions get softened rules as below - I've already modified the unused tracks on Android and all the iOS tracks. No current achievements are affected by the change but the adjudication process should throw up less confusion. Thanks to @Cthulhu for highlighting.


https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/monster-hunter-now/android/?track=Solo


Before:

Time rating on successful completion of a hunt for the specific creature indicated. Player must use the Begin Solo option to fight the creature on their own. Any equipment and upgrades permitted.


After:
Time rating on successful completion of a hunt for the specific creature indicated. Player must play a solo fight against the creature. Any equipment and upgrades permitted.



Thanks. :D

This has been going on for all of the games I've added lately.

The name of this game is messed up.


Currently shows "Val d'Is?re Skiing and Snowboarding"

Should be "Val d'Isère Skiing and Snowboarding"

It looks like my avatar is working now, many thanks!

Could I have my username changed back to "Don Atreides" or "DonAtreides" if possible? It's so much easier to spell. ;)

theres been an update since you're ban where we can choose between screenname and real name appearing. i see this is arleady resolved for you, but its worth pointing out if you're screen name and real name are diffrent, you can toggle back between the two whenever you want without admin getting involved

Please can the Dragon 32/64 computer be added to the list of systems we can submit for

Hey, Admin-

Isn't important really, but could the rounding be fixed(i.e., removed), from this leaderboard?

As you can see I have several rounded "ties", but still not position, and I can't see the numbers I am shooting for from the other competitors, pre TGSAP.

Thanks for any help.

My joystick will likely be broke before it's fixed anyway.

Since this was originally entered by Twin Galaxies, can Twin Galaxies be so kind to add a NTSC track as well?

Bounties don't seem to be working correctly.


I made a bounty: https://www.twingalaxies.com/bounty/beat-my-score-win-a-poster/


Tuffy64 submitted to it, and it was rejected. When he tries to submit again (or when I try) it says the bounty is closed:



On the main bounty page, it shows under my created bounty as both closed and accepted, neither of which are correct. Then the bounty itself is showing unclaimed/unsubmitted to:





Then there is this one: https://www.twingalaxies.com/bounty/1983-cinematronics-dragons-lair-5-lives-challenge/


I guess someone made a fake account and submitted a joke score? idk.


Anyways Jace claimed it would be fixed over a month ago, but it still shows up there as in process.

Adding tracks is messed up:



Trying to add a completely new game. Therefore the name/description is in fact unique, but this pop up happens and then the track title is deleted.


Also the pop up says "description" when referring to "track title". Please use uniform labels across all components.

Text still gets hidden behind the character count box and you can't see what you are writing.

Can the "[Version 3]" please be removed from the Astro Blaster MAME track text so it matches up with Arcade and can be accessed through the drop down box?

This is a much wider request than might be seen at first glance. MAME (and some other platforms) have traditionally included more specific information in the game name than "just" the game name due to its far-more specific requirements than other platforms - dates back to the early 2000s.


Brief thoughts:

Pros:

- Makes navigation of the site easier.

- Makes navigation of the site far more logical.

Cons:

- The move would remove information from the track specifics.

- Admins will need to adjust variations to match the then-missing information.

- Sets a precedent that game names on both MAME and other platforms will need to be reviewed (literally thousands of games: MAME has 2500+ games some with tens of variations each requiring change).


Going alphabetically finds a simple example:

10-Yard Fight [Japan]
10-Yard Fight [World, set 1]

- Both have a "Points" variation.
