hall of fame launched, now onto the bugs

Hello again folks,

Hall of fame launched! Currently these are hand picked sites that have had an exceptional amount of views, votes or have just been in the top five list for a long time.

I've also changed some of the voting and views algorithms to avoid view/votehacking and keep large forums from being able to "spam" a site to the front page.

If you've been having cookie issues or voting issues, please read more.

I am having a lot of problems with reproducing the "staying logged in" and "voting" bugs. If these have happened to you recently, please outline the following:

1. Browser/OS/Browser security level
2. Problem
3. Steps that cause the problem
4. Any other useful information.

Thanks!

The main reason this was made was just to keep the content a bit fresher in the content boxes on the front page. So you can now change all your 1 star votes to something more fitting.

How about a "Hall of Shame" as well?

Hall of fame should be a seperate page. Allows for more room for future entries without deleting current ones. Maybe give it it's own special background, etc. Either way, good idea max.

I think the hall of fame should be listed chronologically. And should probably be on a seperate page.

1) Firefox/IE (not browser specific) 2) Cannot vote on any individual site's page (I have to go into the site profile to vote). Also, when I login on http://www.ytmnd.com, I also have to login on http://ytmnd.com 3) N/A 4) These problems seem to be account specific, and not dependent on the browser/computer

God, get "Paris Hilton doesn't change facial expressions" out of that list, please. There's no way it deserves to be in the Hall of Fame over some of the classic fad starters simply because it was linked on collegehumor.

1. Safari/Mac 10.3.9 2. I get a 400 error on site profiles unless I add a www. to the address. 4. This works on 10.4, but at work on 10.3, I need to add www when i click the site profile link in YTMNDs.

max: You should look into the issue of Firefox allowing only 300 cookies max. Each subdomain site here sets about 5 (from what I can tell using Firefox cookie editor addon) so visit 60 subdomain sites and the login cookies could get bumped off the list. Not sure if it's your problem but it's something to look into. I'd have all the cookie domains use .ytmnd.com instead of the individual subdomains. Good luck tracking down the problem. Voting seems to be fixed in Firefox for me now, so thanks for that!

You've done an excellent job with the site. As far as the voting problems go, I haven't changed any security settings in months, just using IE and Firefox on whatever medium cookie setting there is as usual. And for the past week or two it hasn't been letting me vote through either browser. So yeah, I can't really tell what the problem might be, but good luck finding it. Also thanks for trying to stop viewhacking like that Indiana Jones site did. Also cocks, I mean also is there already a way, or will you be making a "theme" to have the forums look like the new main site design?

The Hall Of Fame Looks Great! I'm soo glad those really good YTMNDs are now getting the recognition they deserve. Like "what is love?!" and the Blue Ball Machine

i hope everyones prepared for the inevitable 'hall of fame' problem. by giving them their own section it will boost their hits, thus possibly hurting other sites from getting enough views to join them.

I was wondering where YTMND radio went as well. Is it being worked on or is it dead?

how does the anti-forum spamming system work? does it just ignore a group of people with the same referer or cut the views down by a specific fraction, etc?

Max, now all you need to do is change the minimum votes required for Up and Coming and Top 5 to 6 and 15 respectively and you're set.

All the new features have been great. Although, could you find a way to limit one account per IP, because lately a punk has been making accounts to downvote me and others.

Seriously Max, why did you wipe all my sites? That was really uncalled for. Some of my sites were getting consistently high ratings, like classicytmnd.com And it wasn't like I was involved in any serious sh*t like hacking the site. I deserve an explanation for this.

she says 'oh, you've got some coco on your shirt, let me get something to wipe it off. wipe it off? what the hell, my clothes are already wet what's her idea, i don't even know anything about this woman, she can't be more than 25 years old, is she married or something to live in this huge house? before i can even start to conjure up the answers she sits next to me and starts wiping the stain, even though the shirt is completely wet

'she finally realizes it's no use and gives up but then says 'oh! another stain 'where? !! she starts carressing my manlihood through my wet trousers 'oh! 'she covers my mouth and prevents me from talking while looking straight at me with those sensual halfshut black panther eyes

'what's going on? 'she sits on me facing me, grinding her *ss into my legs and her brasts to my chest, it hurts a little because i'm getting excited, she notices it too and smiles, gets up and signals me to follow her into her room

i'm completely dazed that i even forgot what i was doing before i entered this house, i instintively take off my jacket and stare for a while at the alcove right before the room before deciding to calmly walk towards it

i open the pink door that leads to the room and am bewildered by the sight before me, on the queen sized bed is the woman, naked and sprawled on the bed, rose petals cover the entire bed and her vagina, i take one step forward
December 20th, 2006

she looks at me with a confident gaze like i'm her puppet, she's right, she starts touching her right breast and clearingthe petals in front of her. her eyes never abandon my sight except to look at the bulge of my pants once then back at my eyes
December 20th, 2006

i surrender immediately, i take off my shirt then my pants while trying to walk to her, like a mosquito to the light, i jump onto to the bed, without hesitation i thrust myself into her, she let's out a scream that turns into a moan when i keep thrusting it into her, harder and harder, faster and faster
December 20th, 2006

the feeling in unbelievable, i feel i'm abou to come after only a minute. yet i can't wait, i just want to keep on doing it, the woman grabs me firmly as she screams louder and more passionately, i seem to be hurting her but i don't care she doesn't appear to either
December 20th, 2006

i come, i seem to never stop, i hold her closer to me, pressing her breasts against me, i stay this way for a while then i relieve the pressure and fall asleep on top of her, still inside her
