< Machina updated his status:

Brett says the problem is fixed. I published the German chart yesterday and everything seems fine, so it's full steam ahead for now, unless the problem crops up again.

< tak13 posted something on Machina's wall:

Hmmmm, ioi was online yesterday...

Yeah he's working on it, but apparently it's a bigger problem than I first realised, so it may be some time :(

Oh thanks god, that's what I thought when saw him online!
Would you be able to fix the issue if ioi allowed you?
What is this bug and why we have it? Do you know?

Ah... May I ask about hardware sales update? lol


ioi was online after bein offline for 1 month!
I guess you contanct him by emails? Is he replying you late ? hehe?

I can't fathom that he reads you message on time and , it takes all that time to log in to his site and fix a bug!

No I don't know anything about coding. Trucks likely could tho.

I don't really know much about it, besides the fact it prevents me working on the charts until Brett can get it fixed.

Trunks asked him a few days ago. Doubt it'll happen before the fix but who knows.

Yes and yes.

Pffff...
Ask how much money does ioi need to give you and to trucks full power! I'll pay! :P

5 days ago

It's not about money it's trust - ioi doesn't trust anyone else with that much power over the site.

IMO that whole trust thing is BS. He either needs to fix it when it the moment it becomes a problem or give the permission to someone else like seriously.

4 days ago

I agree but it's ultimately his decision and he does not agree unfortunately.

Another bug.....





....



-_-

10 days have passed...

Why only ioi can fix this?

P.S

When he gets back, ask him to teach you hardware sales tracking, you have to take charge of it too! It's pretty obvious now that ioi is outright bored doing it....

Two months without hardware sales update after a period when vgc started to retrieve a considerable portion of its lost popularity, thanks to you ;)!

on 14 July 2016

Because he won't give anyone else the permissions to fix any of the issues.

I send him reminders frequently when I come across a bug that prevents me making further progress but only occasionally get a reply.

on 14 July 2016

I imagined that! Infuriating....

< Machina updated his status:

One Piece Burning Blood figures won't be accurate until Brett updates them manually. Some sort of database glitch I'm presuming.

< Machina updated his status:

Brett's fixed the problem so am starting work on the charts again.

:D

think-man said: OoT doesn't even deserve over 90. I have no idea why people harp on about this game, the controls were enough to make me rage quit. As for the other games i would put them in the 80's at best. GTA4 is probably my least favourite GTA game and is probably a good example of critics being paid for high scores. Was gonna say I could've basically copy/pasted this post...

Yikes, what a selection. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 I remember being fun at the time, so I voted for that, but not out of any great love for it. Never played SoulCalibur (may have played a demo back in the day, but that's about it), so can't comment on it. GTA IV. Enjoyed it at first because of the novelty of a new GTA on a new gen, but it's really the worst GTA ever made imo. OoT -...
