  • Scoring errors should be corrected. We've changed to recalculating all points whenever they change rather than simply +/- so that errors don't occur.

  • There's no visual feedback that the mouse click is recognized and forum server response is getting slow.  The OP probably just clicked many times when the first click produced no result.  It works the other way around too.  Point counting is severely bugged, vague promise that it will get fixed in the release after the next one.

  • This seems a rather serious bug as far as the rating system is concerned. It also looks crazy in the thread display where these multiple additions or deletions are recorded.

    Are these scoring errors going to be corrected? I know at least one case where I benefited by this bug, and I would guess that most point scores have been inflated because of it. Except Hans/nobugz of course; his score seems chronically deflated.

    On the brighter side, in the new version it says "Marked as answer by xxx" rather "Answered by xxx" as previously. Something I bugged got fixed - yea!!

  • Here's a good example, I've never seen 8 before.  Kudos to the OP, s/he must have really liked the answer.  Maybe it's a good thang...
