Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

Thanks for reporting this. This forum was moved today and in that process it seems that the DNS records for the main site were affected. It may take a short time for the DNS to update, but everything should be sorted now. Hopefully this is the last issue we face and all sites (.net and .chat) should...

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

As far as I can see, the issue with the text boxes are the form on the bottom of the page, which is nested in a table with a fixed 400px width. If I modify the width of that table, the problem disappears. Nested tables... Ugh! I have no idea when that unnecessary HTML crept in. They have been remov...

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

I'm glad you appreciate the effort. I've fixed most of those issues, but I can't replicate the answer box not fitting. As it's not a major CSS update I've not changed the file tag to force a browser update, so you'll probably need to hard refresh the cache to fix the hamburger/colour height mismatch...

Re: Why does the amount of 80% problems keep changing?

Yes, since problem #277 the difficulty rating is based on the time taken to solve the problem taken from the fastest solvers tables. It could, in theory, change slightly if one of the members in the fastest solvers changed their account status to private or deleted it and the next fastest person to ...

Re: Problem 94 typo

DJohn is right, but sometimes common usage makes what is best practice obsolete. Warning: Potentially boring grammar lesson ahead... An adjective is used to modify or add an attribute to a noun (name of a thing). For example, when you have tasty food, the word "tasty" is used to add a quality (tasti...

Re: Why does the amount of 80% problems keep changing?

If by 80% you're referring to the difficulty rating, then you will notice (as I make this post) that problem #671 is currently not finalised due to only having 99 solvers; a problem requires 100 solvers to be finalised. It's possible that it has been moving between 75% or 85% as it has been approach...

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

That's strange. It was working yesterday when I made my last post. Then this morning it wasn't working. I can't even be sure what I did, but it seems to be working again. We'll have to keep an eye on it. Please report here if the images stop working again.

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

I apologise for the SSL certificate issue today. I can assure you that our current certificate (due for renewal in March 2020) is perfectly valid. We had an internal migration today between servers and it should have happened silently. However, there seemed to be an issue with the configuration of t...

Re: Old account dont have recovery key

Due to the anonymity of accounts there is no way to prove a particular account belongs to any individual. I am sure that you are the real owner of that account, but if we just deleted accounts because someone asked us to, then you could imagine how such requests could be abused.

Re: Statistics Levels no longer works

Thanks for letting me know. I suspect it was a caching issue and as they cache every 12 hours it would have coincided with the time when we had issues with the DB migration last night. It should all look good again now.

I've just got in from being out with my family. Our hosts are now aware of the issue and hopefully they'll fix it soon.

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

Very strange. I have no idea how that happened. I have test accounts and they all seem unaffected, but we'll have to keep an eye on things.

With reference to your concern about the fastest solvers. You are now back in the table for problem 677 at #62.

Re: About Statistics-->Countries

As far as I know I've successfully updated the website to replace all references of the word "country" for the preferred term "location". Please let me know if you spot anywhere I've missed.

Re: About Statistics-->Countries

So would the word "location" be a safer option? For example, if two people lived in Hong Kong, then one could put their location as "China" and the other could put it as "Hong Kong". Neither are declaring which country they reside in, rather they are both accurately describing their location.

Re: About Statistics-->Countries

I would certainly not consider this to be unimportant. I was not aware that this had been offending some of our members, so thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Might a more neutral solution to the problem be to change the phrase throughout the website from "Country" to "Location"?
