Same here. My computer's old and crap too, but I doubt that's the issue.

Same for me now , but I did install a Java update this week. Maybe that's the cause.

It's gone funny for me too but I thought Java was just the in-game thing so it wouldn't be that would it? (I know nothing about computers so there's probably no point in me speculating.)

On Firefox the gap between the menu and the page content has been shrunk to basically nothing which looks horrible but is the only visible change.
Are these bad side effects of whatever Chrome thing was being fixed, Charlie?

Right, the bottom and right hand side of my console have decreased in size, so that I can only see 3 and a half of ratings digits, no names, and only the very top of the custom challenge button. I can still play the game, I can scroll through players and challenge them, but I can't see whether they are playing or not which is very annoying. This is happening with chrome. Still can't load with firefox and have tried safari and same is happening. Very odd. Just decided it was going to start happening yesterday afternoon. Downloaded the latest java to see if that would help, but no joy. Is this just happening to me?

Multiple tie-break games like these Spoilage games and foreign conundrum games are skewing the "Highest maximum" figures by hundreds, if not thousands of points in total (Ian and Andy's games make up 690; there may well be other foreign CAs with loads of TBs that are out there). This makes me sad because I've dropped back to 69% of the max on the all-rounders leaderboard (basically dropped fully 1% after Andy's Russian Conundrum Attack). Can these be excluded from the maximum stats like naughty schoolchildren?

Yes, meant to post much the same thing the other day, this has affected the standard 15-rounder and standard 9-rounder highest max sections too.

To the extent that the stated 'highest maximum' for a 15 rounder is actually 100 points higher than the theoretical maximum...

Reports that some users are experience trouble logging into apterous after recent log in changes. They tried different browsers but it kept just saying Attempt 1 of 500 and then counting up but not logging in.

On a similar note, they can't report this problem as they're not on the forum and are waiting for verification for the forum. Namely these are Michelle Nevitt and Callum Carton (Callum has been waiting about 3 months I think).

I can't get in to the game. When I went on the homepage I was logged out (which is very unusual). I logged in successfully but then when I tried to access the game it told me I wasn't logged in. I tried logging back in a few more times and realised that as soon as I press anything after logging in, it logs me out. When I pressed the Play (small) button as usual it prompted me to log in again in the pop up window. I did this but it still wouldn't load the game (just cycled through login attempt 1, 2, 3... of 500). Back on the homepage I had been logged out again. Might be something to do with the new multiple login feature.

This should be fixed now.

I just activated Michelle's account, Callum's was activated already so I dunno what that's about.

I don't have the problem of getting logged out whenever I click something anymore, but I still can't log in (counting up from Attempt 1 of 500).

Should be working now. It's tricky for me to fix this because it seems to be working for most people including me, but let me know if you get in/still can't.

I also had this problem yesterday. I updated java but it didnt help.
I have tried today and I can log in but when I hit "play" I get this message:

"Internet Explorer has stopped trying to restore this website. It appears that the website continues to have a problem".

Is it down for everyone?

That's a problem with Internet Explorer, not apterous. My general advice is don't use Internet Explorer, but if you have no choice then this might give you some ideas: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/For ... ed96261f7/ (especially the reply from Robinson Zhang).

I've just installed the new version of Java (twice) but when I click play it tells me the required plug-in is not installed. I'm not great when it comes to technical stuff with regards computers, is there something else I should do? Every other time I've had to update Java it has worked straight away.

Thanks.

Same for me. New Java installed and got the message "If you are reading this, you do not have Java installed or configured correctly" when trying to access the game. Lemmeknow if you want a console dump.

Just read the advice on the homepage. I use Firefox, not Chrome. I managed to get on with Safari but it's got the old teething problems of getting in with my 4th attempt and having to play warm-up rounds with Prune. After all that's done it should run speedily as long as Safari doesn't decide to quit itself. Firefox comes up with the "If you are reading this, you do not have Java installed or configured correctly" message.

It was only about two days ago I was thinking "I must ask Charlie to change the log-in thing so you can be logged in from several places" and then I come back to C4C from a day away and you've done it. Absolutely awesome bit of implementation. Equally useful for me will be being able to remain logged in from multiple browsers on the same PC for testing stylesheets! :D

Probably explains why I was logged out the other day, I think my ISP rotates my IP periodically. Or something.

I changed the authentication recently so that you have to log in again if your IP changes (since you can now be logged in from several places). Seems like that was a mistake. I'll change it back.

I wasn't on a phone just on laptop. Heaven knows why my IP address was changing every few minutes, very strange. It has only done it once since I posted so I don't think it's an issue any more.

Same for me, but when I click "log in", it seems to log me in without typing anything (or click "Log me in, please").

Yeah pointed this out a while back, it takes the gender from the second player instead of the first.
It's happening in aptochat now too:

2011-07-14 20:30:44 Keith Bennett got a silver pencil for HERSELF!
Mike Brown: "Round 12: T N R S A E I G U

C1: SIGNATURE (18) ["9; not written down"]
C2: SEATING (7)
Score: 108–16 (max 113)

Another niner for Adam and yet another century. Well done, that man."

I just got the word OTOÑAREN is Spanish and thought it was a dead cert for a pencil but I didn't get one. So, after the game I thought I'd have a look and see who had pencilled it already but in Lexplorer, it said the word hadn't yet been pencilled. Is this a bug or is it just that the Lexplorer pages aren't updating that frequently?

Err.... You pencilled it yourself, on the 21st of June, according to this. Maybe you Lexplorered OTONAREN instead?

Any words that don't just contain ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ don't show up as being pencilled, even if they were.

On the lexplorer thing which tells you if it was pencilled.

Climbing Mount Conundrum I was made to solve SPINDLIER twice. Firstly I solved it in this game and then 7 minutes later in this game. I'm trying to catch Chris and Nick, how can I do this if I have to solve conundrums that I've already done?!?!?!!!

It has just happened again. I have just had OVERSEXED and BETROTHAL in consecutive rounds in this game even though I had them both in this game (although I didn't solve BETROTHAL the first time).

I'm investigating, but my house has just been burgled so other investigations may have to take priority...

It tells me it hasn't been pencilled in. Is that good? Separate to that, if you click on "languages" it says "OTO�REN is not valid in any language recognised on apterous."

Might be a browser-specific bug. It works fine in Chrome+Linux. What are you using?

My final 20 conundrums for reaching the peak of Mount Conundrum was ruined by no fewer than 7 repeats. This was meant to be a joyous occasion. :cry:

Edit: I hope apterous got stolen.
