Spirit, thanks for changing the font. It was very hard to read. A lot better now.

Text on front page no longer overlaps.

Re: Report website bugs here

The recent activity log on the frontpage is broken at the moment due to a silly bug. I can't be arsed to fix the bug so we will just have to wait for 10 updates until the culprit scrolls off. ;)

Re: Report website bugs here

Not a "bug" in the strictest sense of the word, but:

A few of the earlier maps have incorrect dates (these are the only ones I've checked, as the dates seemed suspect):

1) Kuro/Sham: listed as released on 22.12.1995, which is impossible. That would be two months before the release of Qtest (which was as far as I know the public's first ever glance at Quake technology), 7 months before the release of  Quake and 10 months before the release of Worldcraft, with which it was created. Crash's review uses the date “4 jan 1997” (not sure if refers to the review date or the release date, though), which seems like a more likely release date.

2) lmed1: listed as released in 06.05.1996 (6 May 1996, a month before the release of Quake) yet was made using Worldcraft, which only came out 3 months later. The readme is dated 9/5/96. If it uses the American convention, that would mean 5 September 1996, which – though still surprisingly early – seems like a more likely release date.

3) r-evil2: listed as released on 10.06.1996 (10 June 1996), yet made using Worldcraft, which only came out in September 1996. Readme is dated 10/6/98. Once again, assuming the American format is used, that would mean 6 October 1998, which seems more likely.

Please correct me if I'm wrong on any of this.

Re: Report website bugs here

Man, fuck the US date system...

This is some great detective work, thank you so very much!

The timestamps on the site came from the timestamps of the files inside the zip files. I wonder if that format uses no proper format universal timestamp?

1) kuro: http://www.gamers.org/pub/idgames2/levels/j-l/ shows the txt from 1995, the zip as 1996. For sham it always shows 1996. kuro and sham are indeed the same apart from the filenames (and the filenames mentioned in the readme files). Both files exist in idgames2 though so I will keep them both.

2) Fixed, thanks!

3) http://www.gamers.org/pub/idgames2/levels/p-r/ it has a timestamp from July 1998 so I went for 10.06.1998.

Great help!

Fuck the German system, too! Changing it to a universal format would benefit everyone. Please don't put it off just because it means a little bit of work.

Re: Report website bugs here

Another map with the wrong date:

"Potpourri" by Darren Stabler (https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/pop.html) was created on 28 July 1996, according to the timestamp of the .bsp file. The date on the map page is off by one year.

Also: the description "Small, ugly, boxed first map" is incorrect, as this is his second map (see the date above vs. the release date of "Basic Castle" https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/bc.html, and the readme: "Well this being my sophmore [sic] effort in building a quake level ...". Sophomore = second)

Re: Report website bugs here

Hi Spirit, I noticed you have Underworldfan's reviews archived in http://www.quaddicted.com/webarchive/ but links in the map database don't use the mirror yet.

Could you do a find/replace of:
http://underworld.planetquake.gamespy.com/

with:
http://www.quaddicted.com/webarchive/un … mespy.com/

example map with an underworldfan review:
https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/768_pack.html

thanks!

Re: Report website bugs here

Another date-related oddity (I'll keep posting them in this thread even though I realise they're not really "bugs"):

Marcus Dromowicz's mexx must be a late 1996 release (most likely October, November or December 1996), despite the 1997 timestamps of MEXX.BSP and MEXX.TXT.

Reasons:

1) MEXX1.BSP and MEXX2.BSP are Marcus Dromowicz's first maps, predating mexx3 (whereas the current date on Quaddicted suggests that mexx was released after mexx3, mexx4, mexx5, mexx6, mexx7, mexx8 and mexx9).

2) Despite having a 1997 timestamp, the readme is dated "11/5/96". I am guessing this means 5 November and not 11 May, going by MEXX2.BSP's timestamp (21.10.1996) and the date crash uses (see reason 3 below).

3) crash's review uses the date "22 dec 1996".

Re: Report website bugs here

In some of Tronyn's reviews, the images do not display at all. I have tested it in both Firefox and Opera, with the same results. I have not checked the other wiki entries, but the following reviews have this issue (the rest are fine):

https://www.quaddicted.com/tronyn-revie … _by_willem
https://www.quaddicted.com/tronyn-revie … yet_living
https://www.quaddicted.com/tronyn-revie … utger_baks
https://www.quaddicted.com/tronyn-revie … ed_by_kell

https://www.quaddicted.com/tronyn-revie … _by_willem
https://www.quaddicted.com/tronyn-revie … _by_trinca

Also: over the past couple of days, I have often noticed the site's slowing down to a crawl, and every so often the feeds on the front page stop working. Not sure whether this is indicative of anything, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

No one got around adding those images back in, they are available in https://www.quaddicted.com/webarchive/w … t/uploads/

I noticed that slowdown myself earlier. Not sure what causes it.

details.php needs a check when commenting. Right now one can comment as a guest, using a registered user's nick and then his/her rating will be shown. The script should forbid guests to use registered users' nick names.

Re: Report website bugs here

Should the screenshots on the front page not be of the latest four releases? They're been static for a while and currently there seems to be no rhyme or reason to which shots are displayed.

I guess I can understand why old releases that have only recently been added and speedmaps are not displayed as prominently as brand-new full releases (although the latest sm_packs have screenshots, so they could also be plugged alongside full releases) -- but even in that case, the four shots should currently be of metmon1d, mfxsp5, alb1v1a and digs07_v2. Or if alb1v1a is counted as an old map, then it should be metmon1d, mfxsp5, digs07_v2 and sksp2b. If speedmaps qualify, it should be metmon1d, sm174_pack, mfxsp5 and alb1v1a/digs07_v2.

As it is, we've got metmon1d, digs07_v2, sksp2b and zendar1d.

EDIT: I've changed it to metmon1d, sm174_pack, mfxsp5 and alb1v1a. My apologies in advance if this was against unwritten policy!

Re: Report website bugs here

The unwritten policy is that the frontpage shows screenshots of the lastest four releases [that are worth showing]. This excludes crap like speedmaps and old stuff. mfxsp5 simply slipped our minds.

If it was for me, the four shots would be randomly selected from the whole DB on each visit, but it's either more difficult to implement than it seems, or Spirit doesn't like it for one reason or another.

Re: Report website bugs here

That would require writing a plugin for Dokuwiki or helping migrate to Wordpress I guess. I would not want them to be random at each visit anyways, weekly rotation would be nice though.

Like negke said, those spots are not meant to show all the latest additions but those with screenshots that "bait" people into clicking. Kind of a showcase.

Re: Report website bugs here

There is something desperately wrong with rating in /reviews/ index page - users' rating not match rating in map review page.
For example see https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/func_mapjam2.html , ATM it have 5/5 rating with total of 6 votes. On /reviews/ is have "4.5 (6)".
