Fail. Bug deletes 800 of Massman's results.

Just a quick newspost to let you know we've installed a quickfix for a critical bug. The bug in question triggered the 'delete duplicate result'-action when a member was first banned from a team and then moved to another team.

We ran through the HWBOT logs to find cases where results were deleted and turns out only one user was affected: Massman. A definite fail when it comes to being respected by the HWBOT engine.

In any case, a quick fix was installed to work around the delete-procedure. In the coming days, the bug will be removed from our system and (hopefuly) Massman will get his results back.

It's not funny, but is it okay to snicker behind your back?

recently, hwbot are so slow in coding, testing and introducing features that I doubt this is a "real accident".

Christian Ney says:

hihi :D

Belgium Massman says:

When in doubt, check the profile.

who was that member removed from madshrimps?

Belgium Massman says:

That was me. There was a bug allowing all team captains to remove any member from his team (fixed already). After it was tested on my account, I tried to return to Madshrimps but doing so the engine though my results were duplicates and deleted those. Very stupid bug.

i thought it was somebody else, i saw your team drop 18k to 15k-ish

We at OCF wondered what happened, we suddenly got promoted to 12th and were like "Sweet! But why?". That sucks, really :(

That's a good one, can you restore them or are you gonna have to do a k404 style submission day?

^ Thinking the same thing

Eeky NoX says:

Same here oO What a trauma :( I could hang up myself for less...

Germany Hyperhorn says:

Sorry Massman, that really sucks. Next time let's better try it with a dummy/test account. :o I would get mad in the same situation.

Having said that I am probably the first and only user, who ever banned Massman from his team. "I banned Massman" - that's priceless and nobody can take it away from me. :D

Belgium Massman says:

No, it was good that this happened to my account. With a dummy account, we wouldn't have noticed the loss of results ... :)
