The Blades Forge is now open for public use.

Reviews are not yet available. They will be added some time before next weekend, hopefully. Syndication of the Spiderweb Tables and CSR (xml) may follow depending on success of the site.

Beta-test organization (including mailing lists, private forums+downloads, automatic publishing and reply-scanning of Beta Calls here and on SV, the works) may come around the new year if there is demand for it.

In general, the site right now is good only for hosting scenarios, graphics, scripts and articles.

One step closer to Aran assimilating all of spiderweb.

I love the Blades Forge idea, for the record, and am going to have lots of problems if it doesn't take off. So you clowns start using it or I'm going to have to start busting skulls. :P

Um, still can't register. Now it tells me that the User Name field is required when I tell it to Create new account, despite the fact that I've entered a user name.

Ditto.

It wouldn't have anything to do with the space in my name would it?

Edit: Oh, by the way: Pixel Profusion is missing in the links to external graphics sources.

Edit 2: If this page is any indication, the [spidweb] tag doesn't work. Nor does the [spoiler] tag. (Or it could be just an error in that page?) And the example for [table] isn't very clear. Does the tag allow you to format multiple rows and columns, and if so, how?

I notice your smileys are absolutely identical to the ones on this site...

Edit 3: The avatar system seems a little odd in that it scales the image up if it's too small. Shouldn't it just leave it? (Obviously it should scale down if it's too large though. :) )

Seconded, but with possibly less bloodshed, and more "unexplained illnesses".

The avatar does not scale up nor down. The preview in the form just has a fixed size, so the image will look scaled up until you save your profile.

Spaces are not currently allowed in names. This is probably a bug, since Jumping Salmon evidently got his account before this happened, but I do not currently know how to fix this. If you really want a space, I can put one in for you after you register.

Oh, I see. The avatar thing is confusing. A note about that might be useful.

As for my name, removing the space does not work. I get a "User Name field is required" error.

I'll just go ahead and put it on the record.

I am an anomaly.

It'll be soon, probably. Arancaytar thinks he's identified what the problem is, and will fix it at some point in the future.

Unfortunately, that may end up being next weekend.

I hope I can be excused for spending the beginning of the vacation first catching up on my sleep deficit and then helping my family with the decoration, dinner, so forth. :)

I promise that I'll have registration working in about 6 hours from now.

That's nice, but since it's Christmas, I'd be satisfied with 36 hours from now. :) I wouldn't expect you to work on Christmas Day or even Christmas Eve (but if you want to, I won't complain).

I wouldn't normally, but I meant to do this for weeks and finally can get SSH+vi to work again without a two second lag for each letter (yay for broadband internet!).

It took a bit longer than I expected, but then I started later than I said, and I fixed a minor WTF in Drupal core along the way.

Edit: And because I kind of silently implied that - user registration is supposed to work now. If you still get trouble, yell on AIM; I'll be around.

YES!

*clears throat*

Sorry. Just got a bit excited.

(and yes, that means it works)

Yay! Finally it works.

One thing I noticed: when I logged out, the page didn't update to reflect this. (Bypassing my browser's cache fixed it.)

Edit: How long does it take for bulk graphics to be processed? :confused:

Technically? Under ten seconds.

Actually? Directly dependent on how often the batch job runs. Never -> forever.

There's a problem I haven't yet fixed, and until then the batch job can't run.

---

On a positive note:

Scenarios are now filtered by released state. By default, unreleased scenarios are hidden in the list; they can be shown optionally.

Actually showing whether or not the thing is released is right now a different matter.

Edit: And this different matter is also solved. The CSS rule that does it is a thing of beauty.

.view-field-node-data-field-released-field-released-value {
display:none !important;
}

td.view-field-no + td,
td.view-field-no + td + td,
td.view-field-no + td + td + td,
td.view-field-no + td + td + td + td,
td.view-field-no + td + td + td + td + td {
background-color:#fed;
}

Now if only scenarios could be released...

I posted this on Shadow Vale, but it appears you may have missed it.
quote:
Two errors to report.

First, (this is the error I PMed you about) when a scenario is submitted, an error page pops up with this:
EDIT: Now gone. Sorry, Aran!The scenario still submits, it's just that it could be a bit deceiving. I should know; I submitted Witch Hunt 5 times before realizing it.

Second, I can't release the scenario. Whenever I fill out the form and upload the scenarios, when I click on submit, it just takes me back to the main submission page.

Bug fixed. Now please remove the error message so that the page stops being broken and Google stops connecting my real name with Spiderweb.

Edit: Unfortunately, the bulk graphic feature is terminated until further notice. It has repeatedly failed to function in any predictable way and wreaks complete havoc on the database every time. I will need a completely isolated development and testing site set up before I can continue work on this feature, and that will take a lot of time. Until then, graphics have to be uploaded individually.

If you click Submit without first clicking Upload, the graphic fails to upload but you still get the points.

Edit: Also, everytime I add a graphic I get an warning of the following form:
user warning: Duplicate entry 'xxx' for key 1 query: INSERT INTO drupal_node_comment_statistics
(nid, last_comment_timestamp, last_comment_name, last_comment_uid, comment_count) VALUES (167, 1198636863, NULL, 15, 0)
in <path removed> on line 151.
where xxx is an ever-increasing number.

Edit 2: I'm assuming that means the zip I uploaded will be deleted? Because I'm now uploading them individually.

Edit 3: I'm getting 15 points per graphic even though the FAQ says I should get 10.

Fixed; Sorry about that, Aran. The scenario release bug still appears to be present. When I attempted to release Witch Hunt, after clicking on the Submit button, it just took me back to the main submission page.

Muting error messages in the production version will make it rather difficult to track bugs, but seems inevitable in retrospect.

Also, I haven't been able to find the release bug yet. I'll take another look at it when I'm more rested.

Please take it out, like Nioca did. :)

--

I've traced the release-form bug to a simple boolean logic error.

if (on_a_release_form OR on_a_review_form AND NOT scenario_selected)In my advanced state of mental exhaustion while typing that code, I forgot the parentheses around the first two to ensure the precedence worked correctly.
