All other participants will receive 100x their score in CPs. 


Does this mean that wen i have 200 cp's, that i will get it multiplied by 100?

That means that if you get 200 points you'll get 20,000 CPs for the game, not if you have 200CP's you'll get another 20K of them.

Typos count as any errors in the entire website barring posts in the forums?

Any typo in a static portion of the site (rules, Game interface...) counts.

Forums, classifieds, personal messages, GNS or sim news posts do not count.




No, you cannot lose CPs.

Stupid question but then again probably not so stupid :

Why are all bugs weight the same ?

It obviously takes much more time to fix some big bugs (like you will likely encounter in new features) than to fix typos.

While in essence this contest is a good idea, i fear that :

- developpers will be tempted to favor quick fix of small bug and not take care of bigger ones, for the sake of gaining points

- developpers will be tempted to fix bugs all around, possibly fixing typos on files that are being reworked by someone else,... again for the sake of gaining points.


I would remove the developper participation to this game altogether to avoid such side effects.

1/ Because I do not want to start weighting bug, it would become quickly a nightmare.

2/ With our restricted team, I doubt this will happen. Especialy as typo are mostly on the rules page or static page and everything has to be reported once on the bugs base.

3/ Even if the developers fix all "easy" bugs, it will make the work of the senior developer easier to just have to fix the "big bugs".

4/ The Sim Master does not participate in the contest but still fixes bugs (eating your points potential) ... :)

This may be a stupid question, but where is the bugbase?

There's a 'Bug Report Form' link at the bottom of every menu, that takes you to the bug base in an iframe. Direct access to it can be found here: http://swcombine.com/bugs/view_all_bug_page.php

I have a few question here:-

1) If someone like me win the first prizes as example, where by I actually live in the Asia Region. Do I still get those prizes or have any option of what I want.

2) How do I know that someone else has report the bug I intended to report when in the Bug Report is only summary of the bug. No format to follow to report.

3) In Contest rules - How to track earned points, stated that Points due to fixed typo, Points due to fixed link or Points due to fixed character/custom picture. Does this mean player get point even developer fixed the bug?

1/ No worries. We will either use an online webiste that delivers in your area (amazon or whatever) or have you buying it and refunding you through Paypal or whatever. Anyway, if you win the contest, I will make sure you get the price.


2/ Use the search feature of the bug base to be sure.

3/ If you reported the typo in the bugs base, it is rather easy, check the status of the bug (open or solved).

In regards to Alans 2nd point, how do we know whether the bug is the same one? I mean, isnt it possible that you could have a bug that looks similar but is caused by a different set of events?

By the way, what happened to the bug contest (and all the recent posts) on the sim news page?


Year 6 Day 365 18:05
Centauri,
If a bug is causing two different sets of problems then I wouldn't count is as a duplicate, so you wouldn't be docked any points when it was closed.


Jam,
How many hours ago did you post it?


Tarform,
Part of the news table got wiped, should have a backup of it up today.
