Re: Extending game times

I get it, but last time the problem was I didn't add enough time. The worry is that someone had orders to enter but it's late or they have other obligations, so they miss that 3 hour window to enter their orders and the next three hours they can't access the server, so they can't submit turns out of...

Adjudicator bug?

I got a report of an adjudicator bug. I think it's been over a decade since we last had a confirmed report of an adjudicator bug so I always give the adjudicator the benefit of the doubt, but this does seem like a bug: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=455699 Previous turn positions: B.png C...

Re: webDip makes international news: Science!!!

Congrats to the Meta team! it's not just the Zuckerverse they do some very cool stuff too. Look forward to reading and digesting this properly I asked whether we'd be able to get it running permanently and was told the AI needed 56 GPUs to run.. so it'll be a while before you can play against a full...

Recent downtime

Apologies for the downtime recently, not sure what is causing it yet but we do know why it wasn’t triggering the alert, the meta bots aren’t responding so there are orders stuck in the queue which means it has been stuck in failure mode for days so not triggering when another failure happens. It has...

Re: Unable to access games

kestas, does excusing misses that occurred mean you would allow someone to rejoin a game that they were kicked from? a game that I am in had that situation, which doesn't seem fair to the player who was booted Yep that's right; any kind of issue with points / bans / missed turns / reliability ratin...

Re: Unable to access games

FYI the downtime was between Sat Nov 19 02:34:23 UTC 2022 1668825154 and Sat Nov 19 04:04:33 UTC 2022 1668830802. There were 6 missed turns across 4 games and 6 users, luckily it looks like they were all extended due to the missed turn so there are no games that people missed submitting orders for. ...

Re: Unable to access games

Damn it.. I added a feature that I tested on the dev system here that runs PHP 8, but the function doesn't exist in PHP 7 which the production server is running on. Because the function only gets run for logged on users it meant the status check didn't trigger and the gamemaster and bot API kept run...

Re: Processing problem

Yep yep constructive criticism, frankly any criticism because there’s always a germ of truth, is always welcome. It might be best to scan for all missed turns due to the downtime and remove them all

Re: EasyCaptcha Image Doesn't Load

Arghh.. There was a bit of whitespace in the config file which caused the image not to render.. I need to add the captcha to a status check.

Thanks for reporting that

Re: Place to enter moves not loading

Thanks for that; we just updated the server to the latest Ubuntu and for some reason it enabled some bizarre Apache configuration that redirects /javascript/ to a shared folder.. Very odd.

Let me know if any issues persist

Re: Bot games not starting nor progressing

Thanks for your patience; an unknown issue causes processing to pause for over the 12 minute threshold which cause processing to halt. Usually I would get an SMS about this and get it back up and running in a few hours at most, but we ran out of SMS credits so I wasn't aware for 2-3 days. We've made...

Re: Profile page

Nicely done flame, will have to check that out. Over time and with the bot additions the code has got a bit out of shape, and we had a loss of mod availability that highlighted how much the site depends on volunteers putting in constant effort, so right now we're focusing on optimization, stability,...

Re: Processing problem

@jamiet The idea is that if the site experiences downtime time will be added to compensate for the down time, but in this case I thought processing had paused but the site had been up the whole time. If the site hasn't been processing for two days but people can enter orders surely no-one would wan...

Thanks all, I noticed a site down e-mail just now with no associated SMS; the site down was because the bots had to catch up with a bunch of orders and it turns out we had just run out of SMS credits due to all the site slowness alerts.

Re: Processing problem

I guess I can see how if I added a day of delay to all games that would give people time to prepare that in a day processing would resume. Are you saying it would be better if I had added time to all games just so people can see when the next process time is coming?
