New voting problem

Post by Dumper » 25/02/2015 - 9:59

When voting on a remix I'm not getting the old drop down menu where I could see the top 5 remixes I've voted for, even when typing in the shout box. Don't know if I'm doing something wrong, I do have javascript enabled.

Also the ROTY 2015 page is coming up with loads of errors for example,

'You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'COUNT(m.id) AS mixcount, MAX(a.arranger_name) AS arranger_name, GRO' at line 2'

Thanks Dumper, for reporting the bugs. I've fixed the ROTY page, there you can see all your past ROTY votes.

As for the ROTY voting process: we have ditched the weighing of votes from the past years for two reasons:

1. It is now much simpler to find the ROTY functions and to actually vote for ROTY.

2. The system of weighted ROTY votes is unfair towards early year releases, since people tend to put a song at #1 that they favour right then, thus at the end of the year your chances were higher to get the top position..
