Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

If you look collectively at all of the posts in that thread you will see that almost everyone has written exceptionally good posts. They include a lot of detail and a significant amount of mathematical notation. So rendering is going to take a bit of time. After the page has finished rendering and e...

Re: Suggestion to reduce "an error occurred whilst trying to submit your guess" error

Thanks for the suggestion about autofocus. I wasn't aware of this new HTML5 attribute. Over time I'll consider convert existing pages to make use of it. But I must be aware of backwards compatibility. I think that some members are still using Netscape Navigator! :lol: Regarding the CSRF token scheme...

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

The syntax highlighting on the main website relies on the superb highlight.js to do it's magic. I've just updated the version and it does appear to have solved your problem. It is possible that this change will have a slight impact on the "cosmetics" with some other languages, but I hope none of tho...

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

Yes, it started yesterday about 6pm UK time and the site has been up and down numerous times. Our hosts are aware of it as it was an issue across their network shared hosting network (where this forum resides). Fortunately the main site is on its own VPS, so it has been unaffected. I'm hoping it is ...

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

Fortunately I'm not a betting man. But thank you very much for getting back. As I mentioned in the email, I've had reports about this issue in the past and in those cases we were able to identify it as a badly behaving plug-in. So when I've sent that suggestion to others, who reported the same probl...

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

You emailed me with exactly this issue. When I replied, I said that if you're seeing that error, then you're probably using a browser plug-in that is interfering with form submissions. I'm more than happy to help, but you'll need to give me some information. It would be good to know which browser/ve...

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

Thanks for reporting that. It seems to be a bug, and a known issue, with the latest version of phpBB. I've modified a few of scripts to fix it, but hopefully a proper fix comes on the next iteration. In the meantime, I tested it myself and it seems to be working again.

Re: Removing incentive for spoilers

I would say that you're pretty good at reading my mind, and your thoughts echo the sentiments and convictions of the team. This is why they work so hard at developing and refining new problems that offer something new and, as LilStalker suggested, makes the challenging journey so worthwhile. If you ...

Re: Suggestion - Link to Fastest Solvers from problem page

You can still access the fastest solvers from the problems table page by clicking on the value in the "Solved By" column. Having a link on the actual problem page would be an unnecessary distraction if you've not already solved it. I imagine most members are more focused on solving the problem in fr...

Re: Suggestion - save to clipboard when posting?

So I've implemented the new system and updated the privacy policy accordingly. It would be good if some of you could check it out. I won't say too much about it, as I'm hoping it is intuitive. But essentially, if you leave a page unexpectedly or you submit the post and it is unsuccessful, then it sh...

Re: US flag color

Getting new flags is on my to-do list, but in the meantime I've resampled the "blue" from the flag taken on the Wikipedia page for the United States: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States Hopefully this is a more agreeable blue. Keep in mind you may need to refresh your cache to see the new im...

Re: easier new problems?

Solving problems can be quite addictive and when a mass of "easy" problems lie in-front of you the temptation is to solve the next, solve the next, and so on, until you can't solve any more. Sorry if you've already done this, but there is a mass of learning that can be found in the threads of the pr...
