Voting Problems? Oct. 12th, 2011 @ 08:15 AM Reply

I've had a couple users PM me about not being able to vote on entries that they haven't voted on in days. It is a bit unusual to get a couple people PM'ing me in a short period of time about this. Is anyone getting the message along the lines of "You have already voted on this today"?

What I've noticed is it treats the submissions I've viewed recently (top 4 fav's that I usually five-bomb daily) as if I had already voted on them that day, when I hadn't. To remedy this and cash in on the xp, I simply voted on submissions I hadn't seen before. That seemed to work.

Additionally, the top 3 daily's in the bottom corner haven't updated...something must be mildly askew in the portal.

I assume the process that calculates the days awards/stats and removes the previous days votes hasn't ran, which is why there isn't a p-bot post for the day either?

Yup and the problem is extended into the forums a tad bit as well. CampusPolice was demodded very early yesterday and yet it says they are still a mod today. As for the voting, I'm getting that one a few submissions here and there. Was able to vote on something again that I had voted on last night though.

Yeah, tried to counter the retards 0-bombing my audio yesterday morning and I got the message that I'd already voted on them.

Strange, but when I logged out and voted, it allowed me to vote normally.

P-Bot issues, with no updates on the Tuesday or Wednesday top 5s could be some kind of portent for, I don't know, a redesign or something?

Also , the audio top 5 list didn't updated as they used to be, everyone went crazy at the audio forum.

It's happening to me as well. I didn't notice it because it doesn't happen for under judgement flash, but when I tried to vote up my flash that some retards 0 vote every day, it said that there were 15 hours left for the next day when I didn't even vote on it!

Could it be a redesign feature that's leaked?

The sooner the redesign the better. All because of Coop's rumor, I'm giddy and filled with false hope...don't let us down, Fulps!

I tried voting on a flash portal submission I voted on over two days ago as a test and I couldn't vote on it, so I think something is up

I just cleared the caches of all my browsers and abused the shit out of CCleaner to get this to work again... it did. I'd rather like to keep my data up though instead of having to clear it every day.

Guys, I'm pretty sure this is linked to obvious problem that P-bot hasn't posted new daily/weekly winners since the 3 days ago.

Looks like Wade has worked some magic and part of the problem has been solved. At least the some of the bi-products of the problem.

Thanks WADE!!!! You make teh Newgrounds work!

Okay, the daemon that runs the nightly scripts was switched off on Monday whilst we were working on the storage maintenance. It's back on now and I've run the portal awards for yesterday and today manually. The voting issue will persist until midnight, after which it will right itself. You'll just have to find something else to vote on until then.

Apologies to those of you who were banned and should have been let off the hook either yesterday or earlier today.

And thanks to those of you who actually contacted us about it, which is the fastest way of getting resolved, rather than just complaining about it on the forums in the vain hope that we'll stumble across it.

you should only be able to vote once forever.
more than once ruins the system and turns the ratings into a giant circlejerk/0 bomb party.
Maybe you could update the vote.
But 1 vote per person via a review.

If you want to vote 0 you should at least stick by it.

Same here. I tried to refresh the page before the "cannot connect to the NG server" windows pop up, but still could not vote.

I will quote liljim for you, maybe you just didn't see it, due to this stressful situation:

Yeah, I tried voting on the TF2 flash, and noticed that it shouldn't be number 1 and also I can't revote on it.

So I just wanted to test that on a classic flash game, such as Epic Battle Fantasy, and see what I find on abusive stuff.

Yes, I got that message just before while trying to vote on some entries. I've since been able to vote on certain other entries though.
