Reaction tracking is borked

joshofalltradesjoshofalltrades Class TraitorSmoke-filled roomRegistered User regular
This really isn't a huge deal, but going to check on who has reacted to my posts shows just a single page of agrees and awesomes with bros not showing up at all. There are reactions tracked from posts prior to and after the Christmas Hangout, so it isn't something as simple as a time cutoff.

    It is not borked, it is working as intended.

    Think about how the holiday forum works. For most of the year you guys can't even see it because it is hidden away in the aether. We do this using permissions, obviously, so for 362 days of the year you have no permission to see that forum or its content. This doesn't change when you're retrieving posts via the reaction list, either. Those posts of hidden from you in the main forum AND in the reaction list.

    For a more black and white example: if you were made a moderator for 3 days, and during that time you posted in the moderator forum and received some reactions on your posts, when you were de-modded would you expect to still have access to those posts? Nope. They're in the mod forum which you can't access anymore. The exact same system is in use with the Holiday Forum, even though its not because of the posts themselves, but the forum they're in.

    I think that Josh is saying that no bros are showing up on his page.

    In fact, looking at my "bro" list (when you click on the bro number), while the count is right, it only shows bros that I've received since the Holiday Hangout closed.

    If I give Josh a bro (as I have done in testing this post), it is the only one that shows up on his reaction page. Take it away, and his reaction page is empty again.

    Posts from the normal forums aren't showing up either though? Any posts pre Hangout aren't there in the profile section.

    Yeah I only have one Bro example visible on my profile, and I know I did not get 432 bros in the holiday forums.

    Nope, all reaction types are similarly messed up.

    EDIT: If it helps, I am 99% sure that this wasn't happening until after the troubles we just had last night.

    Sometimes pages breaks, try adding &page=p2 to the end of the url and see if that shows your extra stuff

    This is odd, because I seem to remember this was working last night when I went to bed, after the Holiday Hangout shenanigans were resolved.

    I remember having to click 'load more comments' about 4 times to get past the blank stretch that was the Holiday Hangout. Now I don't even see the option.

    Okay did that one I just gave you show up on your bro list?

    I think I'm having the same problems but I haven't gotten any bros since the holiday forum.

    ok, so for me the only reactions page working as intended is for the 'Bro?'s. this could be because all the 'Bro?'s i've received are from before the switch to the Holiday Hangout. none over christmas week, none since the HH went away.

    with 'Agree' and 'Awesome' i can see the reactions from immediately before the switch and since the switch back, but the 'next page' option is missing for both of those while its still there in the 'Bro?' section.

  • WybornWyborn GET EQUIPPED Registered User regular
    I have received reactions of all kinds before the HH, all kinds during the HH, and all kinds afterward.

    Right now I can only see reactions for posts that received those reactions after the HH - if an old post of mine gets a new reaction it will be on the list, but not otherwise.

    I have received Awesomes since the HH ended, but I cannot see them. I can only assume that it's people with access to the HH still replying to whatever was posted there, probably the "draw a reindeer" thread

    It seems like only posts that are getting reactions after the HH close are showing up in my list

    I'll chime in and say that my reactions are borked as well. My bros seem to be ok, but I can only see the agrees and awesomes since the closure of the holiday forums.
    not that we are narcissist, but I use my reactions as a bit of a bookmark for searching through my posts for content that I posted a month or two ago that others deemed relevant, like my quick guide to warframe a few threads ago.

    i can't go past the first page for awesomes/agrees either. i thought it was because I crested 1k agrees and it like, reset or something.

  • MetalbourneMetalbourne Inside a cluster b personalityRegistered User regular
    Yeah I don't think I can see any reactions past the ending of the holiday hangout.

    My reactions allow me to see the first "page" (i.e. the first five posts) of each, but no way to go to the next page.

    As the OP mentioned, not a big deal, but it's kind of annoying, because occasionally I can't exactly remember a turn of phrase that I know I made in one of them and now I can't go back if I ever need to find one.

    My Agrees and Bros are borked, but my Awesomes appear to be fine. I believe this to be a new development though, I think I remember them being broken, but they're fixed now.

    My Agrees are the only ones borked. I think it's because I got some Agrees in the holiday forum, so it's looking for those and not finding them, and not looking for anything earlier than them.
    I wasn't Awesome over the holidays, so that works fine.

    If I had to guess (and I'm no expert), I'd say that the reactions from the holiday forum are "invisible" on the reaction pages, but still counting towards the total that it will display on a page. However, since they can't be seen, the function to give you a link to the next page of reactions is not appearing because it's not counting enough entries on that first page to justify there being a "Next Page" link.

    Thus if someone didn't get a lot of reactions in the holiday forum, they can still see some reactions from before it, but if they did then they may only be able to see the ones gained since then. And if they didn't get any reactions of that type on the holiday forum it will work like normal.

    I found a bit of a work-around

    you can type in a page number in the url, like so:

    http://forums.penny-arcade.com/profile/reactions/28378/YaYa?Page=p?&reaction=agree

    wherein ?= a desired page

    and it'll take you past the holiday forum block and you can navigate as normal from there

    not ideal, but workable!

    Supporting example: I got reactions on maybe two posts in the holiday whiskey thread and my reaction views are fine.

    Not sure if it was intentional, but all reaction tracking has once again disappeared. I tried on a few different forumers and nobody has visible reaction tracking anymore.

    Yaya's little workaround does actually work, if you can figure out what user number you need for the person you're trying to view the reactions of.

    Maybe an issue; if ya go into your own reactions and click one, the stuff at the left of the page turns into Edit Profile settings, rather than browsing stuff.
