Bad News on Reviews

Okay, so there are some problems. For one, there needs to be a "correct subject option" for each individual review, not each individual title. I had two different reviews on two different subjects both titled "So Okay It's Average", but only one "correct subject" button for the whole page. It looks like when this happens the review with the lowest score on the page will be the one affected. I ended up accidentally moving both of the reviews to the Avatar film. (Please move https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/review_comments.php?id=1344#listtop to The Last Airbender when you can).

Second, entering the ptitle doesn't seem to work properly on some pages. This is probably just an anomaly though, as it works fine on others. Also, it looks like it categorizes the work under "P" in the reviews index.

Lastly, Google Cache works wonders. I used this: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:hD2cgUie3qUJ:tvtropes.org/pmwiki/review_activity.php%3Fsort%3Dsubject+https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/review_activity.php%3Fsort%3Dsubject&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us Although that list is a little outdated...

Oh, and sorry for double post.

Here you go, 'dee.[Image]

Thanks, but the next page links on that don't work, they bring up a normal next page.

That's fixed. There is now a "find your reviews" button on Reviews Activity.

Cool. Though it may confuse people that it only searches for broken reviews (I clicked it and it found 0 reviews of mine, since I fixed mine). How about a message at the top of the page explaining what's going on for those unaware with the problem, or those who don't read the forums? A couple sentences explaining that the review title system broke and here's a button to help you link to your reviews, and you have the ability to change the title to the correct one. It'll get the point across instantly to everyone who visits the review section, without the non-forumers scratching their heads wondering what's going on.

I checked the list and there are a TON of reviews that I moved when I was reformatting the Eva fic rec page that aren't in the list. Are they gone for good?
Can I get some info on this? The reviews were there last week but since this thread came up I only see a handful of them, mostly of ones that I made myself.

Already answered. They are off line for now, because they are going to be tough to classify.

Alrighty, just wanted to make sure they were still floating around in the æther.

That's fixed.

Okay, one more problem: the number of pages seems to be wrong—it's still taken from total reviews. For instance, if there are 22 pages of reviews total and 13 pages of unfixed reviews, it shows links to pages 1 through 22 and if you try looking at the links from 14-22 they're just blank.

I just corrected one for Darker Than Black... but for some reason Darker Than Black is not showing any reviews at all (not even "0 reviews").

Dec 14th 2010 at 6:28:22 PM

That was because it is marked as an index, not a work.

I forced a solution that makes the buttons show up and am installing a permanent fix for other articles of this type.

Metal Slug has the problem too, and it's not marked as an index.

Edit: Never mind, it was set as a trope.

The setting page types has changed. You can now set a page to 'work' and an index.

There seems to be a glitch with page listings. If you click "page 2", it's like it skips a page. All reviews on page 1, for example, are for Dec 15. But page 2 starts at Dec 12. This was the case even after a few more reviews got added. So it seems to be skipping the true page 2.

Same. If this site didn't exist, what would we be doing with our lives?

But really, I do appreciate what you're doing and I can only imagine how hard it must be to program an entire website as complex as this one. I stopped learning programming languages over a decade ago, and have several times questioned the wisdom of that decision.

Something is keeping reviews from being shown in chronological order. For instance, look at District 9—it has a "part 2" review preceding a "part 1".

(And is anyone fixing these things aside from me? I fixed pages of them but aside from the ones I did it hardly changed at all.)

Dec 19th 2010 at 10:05:58 PM

Your permanent fix for articles that are indexes may need fixing for Power Rangers. It has legitimate reason to be an index, but also legitimate reason to have reviews, and the review isn't showing up.

The page wasn't set right. It was set as an index only, instead of a work and an index. I fixed it for you.

I fixed as many as I could (I'm very disappointed that I seem to be the only person doing them.)

Reamining reviews are still at https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/review_activity.php?f=unfixed . A couple are actually correctly named and are named the title of the work by coincidence (note that fanficrecs can have spaces, others cannot). Everything else I can't recognize and others will have to look at them. Some are probably just impossible.

That's not all of them, unfortunately. Is there any news on the missing reviews from the Eva fic page?

Maybe I'm missing something, but can't we just PM each person asking them what they were reviewing and/or have them fix their own reviews?
