.com Server Changes

Author Brant    Category All, Miscellaneous     Tags

A significant structural update was completed for the .com server and uploaded on Sunday morning. Adjustments were made to all of the simulators, the images, and other files that should make it easier to maintain and update simulators in the future. Most of the changes were intended to be behind-the-scenes, but some changes to the Edit Cast pages should be noticeable.

Unfortunately, this update caused some bugs, and I may not be aware of all of them. Please report any issues you notice, and I will work on addressing these as soon as possible.

Bugs Fixed:
– Ghost Island logo is incorrect.
– Various color and black & white cast photos stopped working.
– Alliances no longer work in the Big Brother Canada 5, Big Brother Over the Top, Survivor 33, Survivor 34, Total Drama Island, and The Challenge: The Duel simulators.
– Merge tribes and tribes added after the start of a season no longer show on Edit Cast for S33 & S34.
– Big Brother 10-20 Player Templates link no longer working.
– Big Brother Canada 5: The winner page redirects to the start.

Thank you for your feedback. Comments have been turned off. Please feel free to use the Contact Form for additional bug reports.
