Scoreboard inconsistency
« on: May 31, 2020, 12:46:08 PM »
I recently had problems accessing Chi on my old steam-driven desktop computer;
 consequently I now use my laptop/notebook most of the time for playing Chi.
However there do seem to be quite major inconsistencies as far as the scoreboard is concerned.
[Using Chihuahua-puzzle.com] I have just got a rosette on today's Standard game; the scoreboard quite clearly shows a rosette next to my name.
However…..
[switching to Lexigame.com,] the scoreboard shows that I have played only 4 words, two of which I have entered in the last few minutes.

Also, the Lexigame scoreboard shows that I am one word short of a rosette on the 10-letter game, whereas the Chihuahua-puzzle scoreboard shows, correctly, that I have a rosette in that game too.

Another strange thing; on the Chihuahua-puzzle frame, the times when the different games start have been blacked out.

Very strange!

Thanks for pointing that out, Mike. There seems to have been something failing in the synchronisation of the two sites. At least one other player was affected. I think the scoreboards are right now.

The blacked out times on the tabs has been happening for a while, but I haven't been able to discover the cause. It only seems to happen in the Edge browser on the chihuahua-puzzle.com site. Usually it can be fixed by clicking on the Reset button under the "Forum Latest" panel.

Thanks, Alan.
As far as I can tell, it all seems to be OK now.
Chrome, Edge and all the rest of them.
Oh, for the good old days of Windows XP.

Sorry, Alan. The problem is still there. Just opened the current 10-letter game on Chi-Lexigame.com and the game is still 'virgin' even though I have already played the game on Chihuahua-puzzle.
The moral is easy - avoid Lexigame and go straight to the other site.

There was an ongoing problem affecting a few players for a day or two, but everything seems to be working correctly again now. Please let me know of any further inconsistencies.
