I'm creating a thread here to keep track of website errors/bugs that have popped up since the server migration from last week. Hopefully this will keep other threads that address bugs related to crunching a little more streamlined, but also to keep a record of these other items so they aren't forgotten when time allows.

Bugs so far:
1. The banner being too big.
2. I was just browsing through the top teams, and every time you click on a specific team, the top of the website says "Database Error" right above the banner.
3. I also noticed that team #20 is the same team as team #21. This problem does not appear to propogate with teams 40-41, 60-61, etc.

Bill, which team was it? It seems fixed now or a stats refresh moved things around.

Hey Bill,

To address the issues you have pointed out. The banner is probably going to remain the way it is for a while. Unfortunately, it is not within our time or monetary budget to make or have a new banner made right now. One of our users has graciously started working on something for us, but I don't want to pressure them into anything.

The database error for uncached team pages is fixed now.

I'm not seeing the duplicate team issue you are describing. If you want to describe it in a little more detail (what pages you see it and how to reproduce the issue) I'll gladly work on it.

Best,
Jake

I've noticed in my account settings I can't choose between Nbody workunits or separation workunits. Right now it's a moot point since there are no Nbody workunits as I'm posting this.

Huh, the duplicate team name (I don't remember which one it was) seems to be gone now. If I notice it again I'll let you know. Database error is gone, too. Thanks for fixing!

About that banner, here is what I came up with so far...


https://i.postimg.cc/qqR5svTx/Milky-Wat-home-banner.jpg

Size is 900x162. The current banner size is 900x200, but I notice it gets stretched to fit the screen. Disable/change that setting so it displays the true 1:1 size and the current banner may be ok.

But if you want to use this one instead then it's your's. If there are any changes or suggestions anyone has, please feel free to share.
