    I had to rejoin all my vote chess games, and now I can't see the board positions. Additionally, one of my groups vote chess games was lost on time: link

    I've been signed back into all of my games now.  The missing votes seem to have reappeared as well.  Thanks, Baseballfan, erik et al.

    No... no thanks to me at all. All I did was relay messages back and forth, the thanks for this go to Jay.

    Well done for restoring state... can you just check that the votes are still being treated correctly? I think I there might be a discrepency between the actual vote count and the calculated percentage of votes and therefore the vote that goes through.

    On this one -

    after 8 votes we had:

    • 14...f5 (50%)
    • 14...Rfe8 (38%) 
    • 14...c5 (13%)
    • 14...Offer Draw (13%)
    (4, 3 and 1 votes for the moves listed - this was posted in the comments by one of the players, and which I can verify was correct at the time from memory)

    After the changes and fixes, and 9 listed votes we have:
    • 14...Rfe8 (40%)
    • 14...f5 (40%)
    • 14...c5 (10%)
    • 14...Offer Draw (11%)
    • 14...Rae8 (10%)
    So somehow, +1 vote for Rfe8 and new vote for Rae8... but only +1 vote total.

    Maybe the count itself is wrong, or maybe something odd happened because of voting during the changeover and therefore will go away on it's own.

    I just got a message for a new vote chess game. The embedded link "Click here to go to this game" points to the message... not the game!

    So far two of my vote chess games have been lost due to time outs since the upgrade. The vote chess games were inaccessible for almost two days due to the live chess upgrade. I thank Jay for his work but it should be noted that it was all just to get back what we had to start with and there still seem to be a few wrinkles. The URLs have all changed for vote games. Bookmarks are my main way of keeping up with vote games since there is no other list of games I am engaged in and no convenient way of keeping track of when time is running out.

    It is really too early to 'thank you' notes!

    It's a lot more convenient using bookmarks. I keep them in a folder on the bookmarks toolbar. Then I can right click the folder and select [open all bookmarks] The browser opens them all in tabs while I go get something to eat. Then I can just flip through them, closing each tab as I please. But all the URLs had changed after the vote games were restored, so I had to go through all 34 of my bookmarks and edit the URLs. I want to take this opportunity to thank myself for all the hard work.Tongue out
