We squashed a bug! (Hopefully for good.)

We had a nasty bugger in our system. The &%*^$# critter gave out a few random Editor's Choice Awards without first consulting with us. What a slime ball!

Over the past few days...if you've discovered an EC Award on one of your articles but have not gotten an official email notification...you've caught a bug. Or vice-versa.

Fortunately, there were only a few instances. Unfortunately, most of those articles did not quite qualify for our award.

Another sign that you've caught a bug was the fact that it showed the award only on articles and profile pages, but not on the front pages of Wizzley.

Along with squashing that bug, we also had to remove the fake EC Awards. As you can imagine, we are totally embarrassed about this, and we are sorry for first causing excitement and now disappointment. (Self-flaggelation in progress.)

Thank you for your understanding.  Embarassed

If I have one, I'm not telling.

I don't normally condone squashing bugs but that one deserved it! What a mean little trickster. Didn't happen to me but sorry to anyone who go caught with this.

My sympathy's to those involved.  Give yourself a pat on the back regardless!

 

As for you and the rest of admin Chef, Atta Admin to you for being so forth coming and graciously admitting the blunder even though a sneaky bug did it.  Very good of you to openly address the issue in the community forum.  That is very good of you, I admire that and am impressed! Cool Cool!

Whoopsie! Well, we all make mistakes, Chef. Thanks for being upfront about it. Confession is good for the soul (and the sense of community on a website).

My question is - are the real awards permanent?

The ones for which you got an email note are permanent, Pam. Have you lost any of those?
