Is this already a known bug?

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/joj ... /rankings/
On the main page and here, it shows as only in 1 list, but it's in 1 official and 55 personal lists.

Code: Select all

All (1) | Official (1) | Personal (55)

I do not know how this happened, but it looks like when this profile, https://www.icheckmovies.com/profiles/joao.neto/, imported their checks, they created brand new pages for each of the movies. I noticed this because I copy and paste from IMDb and noticed it twice recently with Looper being the most recent, https://www.icheckmovies.com/search/mov ... =tt1276104 .
He used a script created bu StegSchreck who caused the exact same problem multiple times before. We are aware. Marijn will fix it.
Ugh! How annoying. Know if it was accidental or on purpose (as in malicious)?

Marijn is also going to be seeing more spam accounts - I'm not up to two fake friend requests. Guess we've just been lucky for a very long time.

got my first spam friend request on iCM and now both iCM and the official forum (or at least whatever part that is used to login) are down not working on my Chrome browsers. Had to report on Edge. Now to see what trackers need to be removed.
I don't know if it's the same one you received, but today I got a friend request from a name something like "megan_doz." And when I clicked the name, there was no corresponding profile.

Different name, but same format - 'normal' first name, underscore, three random characters. The second one I received had a different name but was already gone, so I'm guessing either someone else reported that profile before me or Marijn is already working against the, not sure if it's the best work, exploit

I can't remember what we have to do to send a Friend Request other than complete the form. I know other messaging features have a challenge, so I expect that's the same for the Friend Request. While I'd be surprised if someone is actually creating these profiles and sending the requests manually, it's possible. But if the challenge is being passed by a bot either through exploit or completion, that's not going to make Marijn's job any easier.

Wonder if we'll have to play the Captcha game in the future. They haven't been quite as frustrating the last few times I've had them appear on other sites, but middle of last year they seemed interminable. Really annoying, especially since they are getting more difficult and my eyesight isn't good enough some times.

Not on purpose, but StegSchreck neglected my response about abandoning this thing, after he replied to my first few messages. Instead of abandoning it, he posted his script on github. I think he still believes it works. Lately two users used his script. They certainly didn’t intend to do any damage.

My guess is there's a bug that counts awards for previously official lists.

This glitch may happen for 500 different horror movies, but here is just one example:

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/bla ... heckmovies

The old official list "Top 500 Horror" is wrongly classified here as official.

I don't know if this has already been discussed, but I keep losing my bronze award on the Tim Dirks's 100+ Most Controversial Films of All-Time list. I have checked 55 out of 110 movies.

There's another user reporting this problem in the comments page.

I wonder if the award System actually works on some of the new lists ...

Or it's taking extra time to batch calculate them because of the huge TSPDT 1000 films new official list maybe ?

I got two awards. TSPDT and AV Club, but it is possible it's still going through. I don't think it's the length of the list as much as the number of users. Normally it only has to check for an award when someone checks something, but now it has to check for every single user.

Yeah, I watched something from the Black Canon and got that award before the TSPDT & AV Club awards. Will still need to watch a number of films for bronze on the other two.

How long should I give Marijn before complaining about none of the images for the new awards working? :shrug:

i favicon is also "down" i imagine the image server is having an issue. Only reason you are seeing some is the cache.

If none of the list-mods can provide a timeframe, I will ask Marijn on the other forum. I just don't want to be the person who's always complaining when the site isn't functioning as it should. :unsure:

I don't think any of us have an answer. Did they work and stop working or did the awards never show up? If they never showed up I'd give it another day to see if he has to do something to wrap it up, if not feel free to ask. I don't think being that person who reports a bug once a month is a problem, I do it pretty regularly.

On the other hand, I'd argue patience is a virtue: how important are the images to using the site? It's entirely possible that more pressing issues require a person's attention right now. While I don't mean to suggest that pointing out something is not working is, shall I say, being a pain in the arse, once it's been mentioned (on the official forum), that's probably good enough. We need to respect other peoples' ability to prioritize their time in completing the myriad of tasks demanding their attention.

And it's entirely possible some of our friends are feeling very stressed out right now but don't want to let on. I'm not saying I know or suspect this to be the case with anyone in particular: it only stands to reason.

Nothing like two different list-mods telling you different things to make a decision easier to make. :whistling:

I can use the site, I guess, but it makes my profile page look unsightly/ugly. I suppose as a band-aid solution, I could try to get three more awards in order to push the non-working images off my main page, but the awards cabinet still looks shocking.

Maybe I'll meet the two of you halfway and given Marijn the balance of two days before pointing out the problem on the Official ICM forum.

Report as you like, but as xianjiro says, be understanding that things may take a while to get fixed. If Marijn is so busy he can't look he won't see the message, if he has time to look then he can add it to the list as he sees fit. In this case I'm pretty sure he knows since he mentioned he'd be doing them soon a few days ago along with the signatures. I assume he couldn't find the time to finish the awards and they're next up, but I suppose it's possible he thought he did it and it didn't work.

I don't really think my advice is contradicts xianjiro's.

No, it hasn't been mentioned. Or at least not when I last checked a couple of hours ago. Given what you've said though (highlighted in blue), I think I should give it a little longer. Maybe approx 24 hours from now and then maybe mention it on the ICM site forum if nobody else has yet.
