problem: predictions after closed games

Jun 8, 2012 at 5:51 PM

When a new user make his predictions after a game has been locked, there was no line created for the predicted game in the usermatches table.

match 1 has been locked.
new Player make his prediction for game 2, 3 and 4.
lines with match_ids 2-30 was created. (line 31 ist still missing, see previous bug report)

problem: the prediction for game 2 is displayed as prediction for game 1 (which was already locked!) So the new user can make prediction for already locked games.

workaround: created lines 31 and 1 manually and moved the predictions in a box for 1 line downwards.

Can anyone verify this? thats could be better :D

Hi Alon & everyone,

when I updated to users standings this morning, I realized that all finished games were still open except one (game 2: Russia - Czech Republic was ok), so it is still possible for the users to update their predictions.

Can anyone verify this? It is a bit different from codejoe80's observation, but may have the same cause.

Regards, Matthias

I solved this by exporting all games to excel. Sorting and checking that all had a full set of games,  and importing back into sharepoint in the corrected order.
