It's more the fact he's been saying the update will be coming "soon" for the better part of the last couple months. I'm just curious how far along the update actually is, and what sort of timeframe we should expect.

"Two weeks" :D

The update is ready, and has been for some time - what isn't ready is the base system we want to apply the update to. CAG runs on several web servers, and Invision's style system works fine across multiple servers - *if* you're happy making occasional changes to the live styles in bulk, and dealing with a considerable amount of hassle in syncing up the live servers with the development server whenever a tiny change is made. (As well as dealing with a bunch of other problems, just template corruption, broken caching, and so on.) I know, I've been complaining about this for some time. 

 

So, my solution has been to write and implement a better template system we can use for the areas of the site that aren't based on the forum software. It means that anything outside of the forums will be platform agnostic going forward, iterations on those features will be much faster to roll out and maintain, and should we ever switch forum software in the future (god forbid), it'll just work with minimal changes required. Completely swapping out Invision's template system for the forum stuff wasn't an option, so the second part of the solution was to extend the stock template system to add various tools that allow me to instantly sync all style changes from the development server straight to the live servers - as well as fixes and optimisations for clustered environments. That's what I'm testing now.

If that translates to the return of the Marketplace so I can get back to sorting & trading my collection...

The spell check function hasn't been working for a few days. It works on other sites, but not on CAG.

I encountered this problem awhile back. I found that the following worked for me: Right click in the text box and make sure 'Check Spelling' is checked. Also, under 'Languages,' make sure that 'English (United States)' is selected, otherwise you may have to add that dictionary. Also to note, it seems the right click list of items can be one of two different lists. Be sure to type some text first, then right click in the vicinity (at least the same line?) as the text. Hope this helps.

ok, in order to use the spell check on CAG, I have to select language to English every time I log in. Is there a way to save that? It works just fine on other sties like facebook, ebay, etc, but CAG always requires me to right click, then select English.

Sorry if this has been mentioned elsewhere in the thread, but can we add new games in 3.0?  I know the User Moderation allows for editing existing games (which I do often), but I didn't see where I could add new games to the database.

 

TIA to anyone that answers!

Is there a setting somewhere to disable/enable showing signatures?  When I'm signed in I don't see anyone's signature but if I sign out I see them all just fine.

How do you do an advanced search?

 

Or display results as posts, not threads?

You can get to the advanced search page by going to the CAG homepage, clicking on the search bar, then pressing enter without typing anything. There's an option there to display the search results as posts, too. You can also get to it from this link.

While it's unlikely that anyone would come across this, and who knows if it can be fixed, but if you click on the 'Preview this topic' down arrow for a thread and either of the posts has a spoiler, it gets rid of the interactive spoiler and shows the actual contents of the spoiler.

Alright, so not sure if my subscriptions are busted, or just my head here but I used to get daily subscriptions of new threads started under the main board for Video game Deals (http://www.cheapassg...deo-game-deals/) for the longest time now I haven't been able to activate these emails again. I've un subscribed and subscribed a dozen times, I've messed with my Subscription settings too, to no avail.

Now, it gets even more interesting that I've subscribed to the main Blu-Ray & DVD Deals board (http://www.cheapassg...-ray-dvd-deals/) and I'm getting daily emails... but they seem to only show one new thread with a seemingly random comment from that thread from that day. Whut.. the Fuck....

Any thoughts? Suggestions? Just me?

Shit, we brought a new server online earlier today and I forgot to install everything we need for the game searching stuff. Should be fixed now. 

 

Everything else you've mentioned should be back up over the weekend, except for CSV downloading - I haven't done that yet. 

I still can't search for anything without great difficulty. A search for "Pokemon Red" for example, brings up a lot of Pokemon stuff, but not the actual game. Hell, searching for "Tetris" brings up a lot of stuff, but not the original GB version. I can't find hardly anything with the search feature, and I don't see a way to just browse the games so I can finally add my long-lost-and-now-found GB games to my collection. Are collections still borked, or am I just doing something wrong?

 

Ever since the switch over last year, searching and collections has been a painful experience.

I'm in the same boat.  CAG had been my preferred method of keeping track of my collection for years.  Now I've resorted to using a spreadsheet on OneDrive until CAG's collections & marketplace comes back (... I hope :wall: ).

I don't think Pokemon Red or Blue are in the database because searching as Pokemon GBC shows Pokemon Crystal as the first result.  However, searching for Tetris GB will return that as the first result.  I don't know if John's working on it at the moment because the product search just stopped working for me again.

Well, I will say Pokemon Yellow came up without issue, but everything else GB I tried to search did not. And if Pokemon Red/Blue are not in there, and I can't seem to find Tetris (though you can?) something is wrong here.

 

But I will say issues are definitely not limited to just GB games. I've tried using this search feature for any number of other XBox 360 and PS3 games, and half the time the search either brings up nothing or just brings up random stuff. The game I'm actually searching for may be buried somewhere deep in the results, if it's there at all. Right now, it just doesn't seem to be working at all.

 

How come there is no way to just see what is in the database? Unless I'm missing it, there is no list of games you can browse/filter to just find what you're looking for alphabetically. It all relies on the search, which has been busted for me ever since the switch, so that's over a year now. Like others, I use this as a way to track all my games. I'd rather not have to do it manually.

 

I don't mean to be "that guy", but seriously, what happened here? CAG used to be awesome and everything functioned without issue. Then the switch to the new format came and ever since then features don't work and the content/posts/deals have all seemed to go downhill. I find most game deals on other deal sites now. A year later and I find myself coming here less and less and missing the CAG of old. We fixed what wasn't broken, I'm afraid :cry:

Weirdly, it looks like Pokemon Red isn't actually in the database. Seems unlikely, but I don't see it anywhere (and I'm looking at the game database directly.) 

 

Post-update users will be able to submit game records, though.
