Thank you for pointing that out. It should now be fixed. I did a DB search and there don't seem to be any more instances of that relic.

This is a problem I regularly run into: I open a problem page and work on the problem for a while. If I take keep the page open sufficiently long, something goes stale on the webpage, so that when I try to input an answer I am simply returned to the archives page. If I then navigate back to the problem page and try to input the answer again, I am told that I cannot submit an answer within 30 seconds of a previous submission. This happens even if the answer I submit is correct.

This is quite irritating! If it helps to diagnose this problem, my web browser is the following:
Chromium, Version 89.0.4389.82 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on LinuxMint 18.2 (64-bit)

Hi, Yly.

I've tried twice now to reproduce, leaving the page open for a couple of hours then submitting an answer, and I am not experiencing the problem.

I've checked through the scripts and I cannot find a redirect directly to the archives page AFTER your last submission has been processed.
Are you seeing a message, like, "The confirmation code you entered was not valid"?
When you say you've been working on the problem for a while, what period of time are you referring to?

seems that the profile pictures are currently not generated.

(like in https://projecteuler.net/profile/Jochen_P.png)
I have the same problem
How do I get a "profile image"? When you click on the link [link] https://projecteuler.net/profile/artexxx.png[/link], it does not appear.

On the Progress / Awards tab, the link for the "Perfection" award does not work (https://projecteuler.net/award=27).

I manually tried many numbers other than 27 with no success. I guess the page no longer exists.

In Problem 765's thread, two users posted the exact answer in code blocks. Both showed 267... which lost the first digit in the numerator; but if quoted, we can see the digit is there in the raw text (2267...).

The was previously observed in another thread (viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2720&p=58858#p58858) . Is there a more systemic fix?

@SaxTenor: Having that award as a clickable link was an oversight. It is not longer clickable. Although you can earn the award, and anyone who does earn it should be very proud, we do not display which members have earned it. Although it is an incredible achievement and the vast majority have earned it through sheer hard work, the lure of appearing among those greats encouraged some members to earn it by less honest means.

@shs.10978: I've fixed the problem. I identified the issue from a curious line of code that I'd added. I know I must have put it in there to fix another previous issue, but cannot remember what that was precisely. I've not removed the line, but modified it to not interfere as it had been. We will need to keep a close eye on things as it might soon emerge why I had it there in the first place! :lol:
