See also Changelog

Some thumbnails done appear when first viewed.
Cause: Thumbs are created on the fly then cached. The first view of a thumb has to make it and therefore is slow and sometimes doesn't work
Solution: Refresh


Fanfiction submissions get white bars and bad paragraph spacing.
Cause: This is a html bug in one of the submission methods. I don't know which one.
workaround: Use a different submission method. I dont think BBcode has this problem.

I think this bug is fixed. If you have an effected story, edit it with the BB code style and just save it.

Profile pics can only be one size
Cause: bug in the resize algorithm
workaround: Only use pics that look good at that size.

Profile pic can't be deleted.
Cause: Didn't get programmed
workaround: Don't upload one.

Pages scroll down to the comment box
Cause: Problem with the spell checking system. I don't know the root cause of it.
workaround: Turn off spellcheck

Search is slow
Cause: Search engine is running on a slow server. FAC can't currently afford a faster server for it.
Solution: Wait longer.


Picture views are not updated
Cause: Picture views are no longer updated in real time for performance reasons. They are still being logged.
Solution: Wait for them to be updated when FAC has the resources.


FAC says I have more pictures/comments/favories/othercounter than I do
Cause: Deleted pictures/comments/favorites/etc does not decrease counter values currently
Solution: Live with it.

My profile/forums says some users joined 31 Dec 1969
Cause: This is what is displayed for users who joined before join dates were recorded
Solution: Eventually that will be replaced by something more useful

FAC is too pickey about what is allowed in picture titles
Cause: This code to strip problem stuff out of titles is too agressive
Solution: It will be re-programmed eventually.

Some pictures don't display when I have the resize feature turned on
Cause: Same problem as "Some thumbnails done appear when first viewed."


Last visit date in my profile isn't right
Cause: System to update last visit date doesn't work right


"Browse Categories" Page doesn't work
Cause: This page uses complex JavaScript and CSS and may not work in some browsers. It works in IE 6 and FireFox but is known to have problems in Safari
workaround: Use a different web browser.

Some categories dont appear in the list for adding pictures/stories
Cause: There is something broken in the category hirarchy realted to aliases.

This should now be fixed.

Some pictures show -1 favorites
Cause: Unknown.

Featured pic shows up as offensive image when it is not rated as such (Unconfirmed)
Cause: Unknown

Workaround #2: Create a completely transparent GIF and upload that as a profile pic.

"Database Error" submitting pictures
Cause: Unknown, the error doesn't give any details. May be caused by submissing certain image formats.
Workaround Try submitting the image in a different format.

This was related to submitting to category aliases. Its now fixed.

Broken thumbnails: Some people have been reporting all thumbs appear broken to them.
Cause: Unknown. Seem to work fine for most people except for the occasional broken ones.

Going to list new ones.

"Newest First" sort order
- Sorts by time of order of review + approval rather than time of actual submission. Certain multi-page submissions (such as doujinshi or tutorials) may appear out of intended order when viewed in a gallery.
- Priority: Low. Is a rare occurence.
- Workaround: "Newest Updated" sort method is not affected.
- Suggestions: User and category galleries sort by pid value (i.e. time of submission) while "Recent Pictures" page sorts by time of review+approval.

"Advanced Search" page does not work properly
- The dropdown lists are not properly initialized, i.e. instead of showing "Pictures / All Fields" it simply shows "Pictures" with the second list blank.
- Workaround: Normal search toolbar and Search Results pages are not affected.
- Suggestions: Assume default search options if none specified.

Deleting/Removing pictures
- If a site admin (i.e. staff member with picture-moderating permissions) removes one of their own submissions, it is processed as an admin-level deletion instead of a user-level deletion.
- Priority: Low -- strictly a matter of recordkeeping.

Submission error message
- /add_picture.php produces a valid form, but generates "I have no file to process" error when submitted.
- Priority: Low. Does not affect existing "Add fanwork" links.

User forum profile information
- PHP error occurs when trying to edit forum preferences, signature, etc.
