  Stonehenge: Can someone explain to User: fragan that they shouldn't be uploading 'German' PGNs? Thanks in advance.

I've deleted his latest submissions. I'm getting very tired of having to fix games before I can process them.

I'm working on repairing the broken character displays in user game collections right now, and I ask you to refrain from editing your collections for a while. I will post here again when I'm done.

  beatgiant: I'm done working on the game collections for now. It's not fixed yet, but I'll complete the task another day.

You can edit your game collections again.

  MissScarlett: I don't follow domestic chess. Didn't even know there were no such things as FM norms. Seems all you need to do is visit Hungary and you've got the title. Obviously helps if you can a play a bit.

  beatgiant: I changed some of the game collections last night to repair the character displays. Specifically, it affected games with a collection ID between 1000000 and 1004600. The collection ID is the number appearing after the "cid=" in the collection's URL.

If you notice any character display flaw in a game collection in in that range, please report it and I will investigate.

If it looks like the change worked, I'll repair the rest of the game collections within about a week.

  Messiah: I still cannot change my password, this is going for a good 5-7 years now, or even a tiny bit more. Into the old password field I can write anything (I am dead certain that I am actually typing in the correct one), it does not let me to change it.

If necessary, I can inspect the underlying codebase, totally free of charge, and I can even help implementing a hash-based password scheme instead of the current <plaintext> based one, completely free of charge once again.

  stevemcd87: <Messiah> Thanks for the offer.
We'd like to begin our "User Authentication" upgrade soon, after Gameloader update and Live events.
We're thinking of taking the steps to go "serverless"( https://aws.amazon.com/serverless/ ). If we decide to go the serverless route we will be utilizing Cognito ( https://aws.amazon.com/cognito/ ). You can read about the process at https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/mobile... .
I'll see if I can fix the current "password updater" before our migration.
Sorry for the delay.
