I see you as 2nd when I just opened it.

ETA - That was before logging in. After logging in it's back to you as 3rd.

Bottom line. Don't delete an image from the challenge like I did? :-)


Just keep hitting refresh, it is like Russian Roulette as to who will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd lol

It amused me for 10 mins lol

Happy to amuse! Note that this behavior is intentional and is unrelated to the image deletion bug.

In the existing site, when multiple images score the same and are in the same place they are shown in an arbitrary order. Such images are then followed by a dummy "Image Removed" entry (probably to make people stop and make notice). This behavior is not very clear, creating occasional questions in the forums.

The new behavior is to present such images in a random order. This way no image is arbitrarily favored. Hope this makes sense.

It was the "4th place" image ... I was looking at it, noticed where I could select 'remove image' ... tried it, and voila - it's been removed. ???!

This sounds like a bad thing.

Agreed. It is a bug. See #74 in the bugs list at the top of this thread.

This could be a good thing ... maybe relabel it "acknowledged" or "noted" ...


Free Study 2020-12 I was def not the blue winner this morning???

Yes, button changing name sounds good.

Can't remember if this happens now, but clicked on a link in message and it took me straight out of DPC, did not open in a new window.

Old site then. Yes, I was voting the FS.

Originally posted by nam:

As far as I know, I'm still on the old site. I haven't deliberately changed anything. But I was just voting a challenge. I use a PC and had the images open full on my monitor; using my keyboard. I was a little over halfway through when suddenly there was a hiccough and I was looking at an unfamiliar image. I hit the browser back button (Firefox Mozilla) so I could "find my place" but the image I saw was also unfamiliar. Back again. Unfamiliar. Etc. Finally I closed and came in again. Started with the ones it showed I hadn't voted on and finished. Then I looked at the overall view of the contest to see where I wanted to bump. Much to my surprise, I had voted on at 8-12 images that I hadn't intentionally voted on AND they all had the same score - the same as the score I had intentionally given the image at the "hiccough" point.

I have NOT been following this thread and do not know what could have caused this or if it's even remotely possible for the update to have caused it. But I thought I'd report it anyway as I'm pretty careful when I vote and try to always look at the overall picture once I'm done to give my bumps and I've never had this happen before.

I just went to the new site to see what the challenge was there. Just to reiterate what I wrote below, It is REALLY strange to see the submission date for tonight's challenge listed as January 6th.

PS. To confirm the recent change you made, I was automatically logged in this time.

Happy New Year Mita!

Discrepancy Noticed The new site differs from the current one in how the deadline for a challenge submission is portrayed.

In the existing site this "Sunday night's challenge" is shown as:

Submission Deadline: Sunday, December 20th, 2020 (began Dec. 7th 2020)
Voting Dates: Dec. 21st 2020 - Dec. 27th 2020

On DPCv3 Beta the Sunday night challenge is shown as:

Submission Deadline: December 21, 2020 (began December 7, 2020)
Voting Dates: December 21, 2020 - December 28, 2020

I much prefer the way it is portrayed on the existing site and see a potential for confusion the other way.

Observation: If you are not logged in and you try to upload an image you get a non-specific message along the lines of "Error, image not uploaded, (or unable to upload)", rather than something that tells you that you cannot upload because you are not logged in which would be helpful.

This one too

p.s. happy new year
