Any user profile, it just certain people's?  This bug seems to randomly affect some people, but I've never been able to reliably recreate it.

Well, looks like any, at least every I tried. Including mine.
If that's an error, it does not seem to affect the rest of page contents though.

Maybe that's a known problem:

The download counter for "The Can" for example doesn't seem to work.

The host site behind the download link is FileSwap.com.
With FileSwap you can't link to the download button on their site directly, so that the download file will appear
instantly (except for the very fist time). On all subsequent occasions of someone hitting the download button here in the AGS database, it changes to FileSwap and you've to
hit another download button again over there.

Not sure if that has any bearing on the issue at all though...

Nope.  Even if a link is dead, it'll still count it in the AGS database when you click download (the first time - multiple downloads of a game from the same IP address aren't counted).

However, I did change the way downloads are logged recently, and apparently I forgot to include the field where the games page entries' download counts are stored.  This also affects another five games that were added recently.  Luckily the number of downloads a game has is stored elsewhere, so I can accurately rebuild this information.  Give me some time and it'll be sorted!

There is something strange with the rating of this game: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/710/

The public opinion shows

13 people have rated this game so far:
Visual: 62%
Immersion: 45%
Puzzles & Pacing: 43%
Overall Enjoyment: 42%

But the player rating on top gives it only one cup and when hovering it says "Rated 27% (13 votes)"

Where does this rating come from?

(In case you are wondering why I dig up such old games - now that the screenshots are working again I like to click the random games images on the games page if they look interesting)

There have been two rating systems used on the AGS games page.  Some older games have a strange combination of the two systems, which produces inexplicable results.  Not much we can do about them at this point though, without scrapping all of the older ratings.

Ah, that explains it. Just out of curiosity: how did the old rating work? Were there also categories or just one rating?

No idea!  There are just fields in the database called things like "oldratingsavg" and such  :P

I recently added my game to the database (Shitty Quest) but there doesn't seem to be any way to add images for it. There's no option for it in the fields on the edit page. I hope I'm not just missing something obvious. Thanks.

I can confirm this, I can't add it neither although I should have permissions for it.

Image upload has been offline for a while.  I need to get around to fixing that.

Not a bug report per se, but currently people can create threads in the Modules & Plugins forum. Just wanted to point it out in case it isn't deliberate.

Should they not be able to?  The forum rules seem to say that module authors are welcome to start threads...  There's no easy way of only giving module authors the ability to start new threads, without staff intervention.

I don't think there is a lot of spam going on in this board. If I were about to release a module I'd prefer to post it directly there instead of posting somewhere else and waiting for a moderator to move it. I think it's best the way it is now.

Plus Dualnames is now a mod of that forum so he can also look after threads created there. The change was intentional, nothing is wrong.

Yeah, I already assumed it was a deliberate change.
As you were :)

Also not a bug report, but seemed the best place to post it: be more appropriate if you ask me if the Title that appears on the top of the browser and in the tab labels was just the last part of the whole thing. Like for this page, it'd just be "Bug Reports". I don't know about others, but I often have many tabs open in the browser or windows open in the taskbar, and always having "Adventure Game..." is a bit unhelpful in immediately identifying it.
Not a major problem or anything, but it'd be cool if it could be changed.

Eg:  Bug Reports - Adventure Game Studio Forum

That would probably be the most logical arrangement if you were to change the way it is.
