Scoreboard issue i'm making a wall post about

cut and paste "ok now i'm justly upset. I previously reported my "fire" track for game and watch went missing. I can prove i created since the game itself appears on a search. How can a game appear if there are now tracks for it? whatever, my report in socreboar errors got no traction, i sucked it up, i spent the 10 points and recreated the same track. now mind you, others donated 20 points, i dont know who they are. i donated the final 5 points just now. and wtf, the track still doesnt appear!!!!! "Fire" for the game and watch is frelled. at first i thought dave was pissed at me and destroyed my first track. now i realize theres just some bug. I created a second bug and at least two other people donated their sub points, yet that track does NOT appear under the game. I currently have a sub i'm waiting to submit. I've been screwed twice as a track creator. The other donators (at least two) were screwed. Please look into this. I realize this is a bug. I realize noone is systematically screwing me.but i accpeted the bug before and rolled with it and spent more points and now its happeneding again. Frelling "Fire" on game and watch is frelled. i have submission waiting to go. This is dren. "

    side note "frelled" and "dren" are slang from farscape universe. Every 5 years since i was 18 i noticed i wind up leaving my old group of friends and joining a new group. I thought TG would break the pattern, since throughout all my friends the only constant was i loved video games. when i was living with indians? video games. when i was living with roughians? video games. when i was working on medical equipment? video games. i've been at tg 5 years, i discover farcsape. do i change communites? frilling maybe. the time is right. but ah i love games but i digress. i've been screwed twice now, and my donators have been screwed (i mean frelled). please look into this

    I notice when you click in to the game, the url shows g&w, but the platform on the page lists pinball, also the game name on the page is "Fire!". I believe the exclamation point is causing whatever the issue is.

    The same thing happened when I tried to add "BreakThru!" for Saturn. Not only did it not enter that game correctly, but it also jacked up the existing SNES version, and seemingly tried to associate them with the unrelated but similarly titled "BreakThru" game.

    I've posted about it in scoreboard errors multiple times over the past couple years.

    Interesting I know kaboom technically has an ! I guess if that’s not allowed I’m ok with a slightly wrong name

    Still programming should either fix this or prevent such an entry

    Those former interns never updated the Kaboom rules ...

    So in both examples, Fire and BreakThru, the ! existed in a previous form of the database. You added Fire no ! and broke things, I added BreakThru with ! and broke things.

    I'd assume adding a new track to the existing Kaboom! would be fine, but adding a new game called Kaboom or Kaboom!!!!! would break things. The URL for Kaboom! is just "Kaboom", so in some places on the site the ! is being overlooked and some places it is not, so having a 2nd entry of a name that is not supposed to have ! breaks things cause the site doesnt know if it should group them as the same game/different platforms or keep them as separate games. Are smart urls to blame? probably.

    whats also weird (part of what you earlier stated, but to expliclty give all clues to admin) the game doesnt know its platform but the platform knows it games. that is to say, if you list all game and watch games by clicking on platform, it knows the game is filed under game and watch and it shows up in the list. yet the moment you click on the game, the game says its under pinball. so the information is in fact recorded properly somewhere that its under the right platform yet somehow that info gets lost when you click on it.

    in your cases did you knew tracks at least get created and just filed in the wrong place? cause my tracks dont seem to exist anywhere findable

    two other points
    1. I did NOT put an exclamation mark in the name of the game, at least not this second time that i made it. maybe the first time around i did? regardless making the game now without an exclamtoin mark still causes problems
    2. i noticed if you like carefully for the game and watchin its not "fire!" its " fire!" that is to say the first character is either a space or some invisible character

    Looks right to me.


    Can a similar fix be implemented for:

    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/breakthru/super-nintendo-entertainment-system

    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/breakthru/sega-saturn

    They are broken in a similar way
