Thread: I'm leaving and deleted all of my runs

Started by: Gamebuster1990Gamebuster1990

The WR history graph for IL runs in Excitebots is still broken months after I filed a bug report. I even looked through the code and specifically pointed out what could be wrong. I even submitted it through the old feedback form (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf6G5kHeooo1K11C8WMREf69P_Pv3X4i5DKOjLtUCcDSTreNQ/viewform), and never got a response, not even a "we recognize you have submitted an issue".

Now you've locked the feedback thread and site bug threads, so now there isn't even a real place for users to talk and/or look for these things. It doesn't matter if you don't use it, being able to read about the suggestions and issues people are having with the site adds a layer of transparency. All that locking the threads does is make it harder to discuss issues and improvements with the site.

My third major reason for leaving: the way you have implemented advertisements is stupid, lazy, dangerous, and insecure.

The advertisements are ugly and don't fit the theme, and they shift elements of the page so they're inconsistent between reloads, or they load right before you're about to click on something, and the content you were about to click gets shifted down, which makes you click on it.

ADVERTISEMENTS ARE ON THE LOGIN PAGE. WHERE YOU ENTER YOUR PASSWORD. THIS IS EXTREMELY BAD PRACTICE! DON'T EVER, EVER DO THIS! I'm not going to bother wasting my time for this, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say they're running in a sandboxed iframe. Even if they are running in a sandboxed frame, all it takes is one exploit found to escape the sandbox, and everyone's login info is stolen.

It was already bad enough having the twitch stream and twitter feeds on the login page, but at least you (and twitch) control what code is run there. Having the possibility of just anyone run whatever code they want on the login page is just inexcusable. You shouldn't have any third party scripts running on the login page, period. https://security.stackexchange.com/questions/214784/can-ads-on-a-page-read-my-password

I will not support a company that is so blatantly incompetent, with my content.

The reason why the history graph for IL records breaks is because some of the datasets are undefined.

Specifically in the updateDatasets() function, it tries to get the length of a undefined dataset.

I don't know if it's valid for dataset to be undefined. If it can be undefined under normal circumstances, then a simple !== undefined check should suffice...

If the dataset should never be undefined in the first place... well then obviously you're having a different issue.

I have a stacktrace here if it helps: https://pastebin.com/8ZejjQuc

Just a friendly reminder that the statistics page for IL runs are still broken: https://www.speedrun.com/the_site/thread/o7k5n

I didn't post it in the correct thread last time so here it is 🙂

Thread: WR history completely broken for Excitebots: Trick Racing

Started by: Gamebuster1990Gamebuster1990

My apologies, I'll use that thread next time.

I suspect it may be trying to load some of the data from the Full Game Leaderboards instead of the Individual Level Leaderboards, as clicking on runs seems to only take me to Full Game runs, and never any IL runs, even when clicking on an IL run.

(edited: )

The WR history doesn't work for most of the boards, and clicking some of the records takes you to a record for a different board.

I'm talking about the WR history graph at the bottom of this page:

EX: Clicking the WR for [School Canada - S-Rank] (By TopStar) takes you to [Excite Race - Excite, S-Rank] (By OddPandemonium)

Here is a list of all of the WR history boards and their issues:

Full Game: No issues
School Mexico: Fails to load
School Fiji: Fails to load
School Canada: Board loads but clicking a run takes you the wrong run
School Finland: Board loads but clicking a run takes you to the wrong run
Bronze Egypt: Board loads but clicking a run takes you to the wrong run
Bronze Scotland: Board loads but clicking a run takes you to the wrong run
Bronze Mexico: Board loads but clicking a run takes you to the wrong run
