I just forgot to put it in.

JonT is going to add it in time. We're going to work on it together as part of him getting to know the ins and outs of developing for the meterboard.

Was at a loose end today (procrastinating and not wanting to dig the garden) so fixed the Gap Column issue.

Nice job Thomas. =D> =D>

For those of you who have forgotten (like I had). To get this working, you need to tell the Meterboard who you are. You can do this by clicking on your name on the board and then clicking the "This is me" button just above the profile image on the top right of the profile page.

Great! It is amazing how much incentive things like this provide.

I'll take a look Plummy. I suspect the challenges are not automatically updating themselves. I'll have to do some detective work, but if all else fails I will force an update manually as a last resort.
Moving this discussion to this post.

This bug is a bit of a mystery. I am still digging. The Meterboard is updating correctly, and if I force the challenges to update they set the metres correctly, but for some reason the automatic update (which runs every four hours) isn't working at the moment. This would also explain why some Free Spirits didn't get a tree. I'm doing some more detective work in between a dozen other things.

The good news - Thomas' code was working perfectly. ^O^ ^O^

The bad news was the automated process that updates challenges has not run since we migrated to my server. #-o This is now fixed (I think). Please flag if you think it is still not working.

Hi Jon,
there seems to be a discrepancy with my C2 log and the meter board.
Log shows 931,622 so for some reason the mtb is giving me some extra meters :-k
I'm not too worried about it, but thought you'd want to know (and I won't claim my 1M m until it actually happens :-) )
Cheers, Steve

EDIT : just found one anomaly my end, but still seems out. 931,622 should be correct.

Steve - When I look I see 931,622 on Meterboard 2 and 3. Is it still wrong when you look?

Don't know why but I seem to have dropped off the meterboard completely.
I know I haven't rowed much this year but to expunge me complety seems a little harsh :lol: :lol: :lol:

I’ll take a look this weekend Richard.

Update - the good news is you are in the database, positioned 149th with 60,165m. The bad news is that you are not appearing on the board. I have no idea why...this thing is so, so complex. I'll keep digging. There is a field in the database which says you are "not active". I have to admit to never noticing this before so I will have to see if that is the problem and where that field is set and used.

Richard, you appear not to be affiliated to Free Spirits -> https://log.concept2.com/affiliation/13 ... ype=rowers

This may well be the problem. Can you do me a favour and go on to the C2 logbook, edit your profile and see what it says on the Affiliation tab? If it doesn't say Free Spirits for some reason, can you change it and let me know?

Jon, a couple of weeks ago I changed affiliation to a small group set up by some ex work colleagues. I didn’t realise this would remove me from the meterboard as I didn’t change the team I was in which was still FS. I’ve changed the affiliation back to FS and I’m back in the meterboards. Really sorry to have wasted your time. Thanks, Richard.

No problem Richard. Glad we sorted it out. As ever I learned something about how the meterboard works at the same time.
