character counter

You don't think the pixelwidth blabla was a good explanation? The title-included theory certainly isn't. ;-) --ukelele 08:29, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

If you understand something about databases you can disregard outright the pixel theory. As for the character count explanations in the current article, they are both quite plausible depending on the structure of the database. --Jhattara 08:34, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
I know little about databases, but i know something about webdesign and fitting a certain amount of characters in a box that's limited by pixelwidth can be problem. Typing only 'www' instead of 'iii' will matter a lot in a non-monospaced font. The messegebox is just (i.e.) 200x200 pxl and it can't stretch if you decide to type 300 w's. But I'm not sure on this at all, just a theory. If HT weren't down I would go and check straight away. --ukelele 08:49, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
The textbox where you enter the text might be of limited size, but everywhere where the data is shown varies in height according to the amount of data entered. The limit on characters used is almost certainly related to the amount of characters allowed in appropriate database sections. And there is no feasible way to limit the amount of text you enter according to how much space it would take with a non-monospace font. --Jhattara 10:15, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
That sounds feasible. It just came to me that if the pixel theory were true, your post would probably end with half, cut thought the middle, characters. So it's bull afterall. ;-)

Why in the bugs page there are links to non-ht sites? This is spam.

Yes, it was spam. It's quite frequent in here and can be dealth easily by reverting to the older version of the page. --Jhattara 12:24, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

It is quite clear that the error in the character counter is caused by new line characters and this can easily be tested by anyone who counts how many new lines his post has. This is also not a Hattrick specific problem, but one that arises all over the web. --Fluster 22:01, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

TS-drops when selling players

This seems completely false. Even some research that has been posted on the wiki refutes this. -- Jake 17:03, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

It's true. That research is outdated. The feature seems to be broken since the server problems in March this year. --ukelele 17:15, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Loss of formation experience due to transfers

This bug was repaired on august 21, 2006 --ukelele 20:15, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Is that something that was announced, or did you observe an instance of the supposedly non-functioning exp loss on that date? --Mr Wednesday 21:36, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
This bug was reported by members of the Weetjewat federation and it was fixed the day after, along with the ts-drop when selling players bug. There was no official announcement. --ukelele 20:57, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

based on opinion

Is the 'based on opinion' template appropriate on this page? This are all established facts. --ukelele 20:11, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

I'd go with "based on research", but not "based on fact" since the HT's have verified little to none of these bugs. -- Jake 20:18, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
maybe a new template 'based on experience' is in order. --ukelele 20:20, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
There's already a template for "based on research". We have three templates for game-information: based on opinion for information that is considered "common knowledge" but isn't easily verifiable, based on research for information that has been gleaned from research using actual in-game data, and based on fact for information that the HTs have said using the rules, public conferences, MyHT, or an editorial.

Last club money is paid to the teams that change owners

I disagree of the existance of this bug. I have heard several times that previously owned players do appear in the bids page of the new owner of the team, but no money is received. More accurately, I recall that the percentage announced in the bids page is zero, and thus the amount of money paid will also be zero. But I do agree that the policy of old players appearing in the bids page can be confusing. --Fluster 22:01, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

pops from non-existent

I thought this was a deliberate feature, so that people who signed up for mobile phone tracking didn't have to pay for these useless messages?

Maybe, but it doesn't really make any sense to me. Why would a pop from nonexistent be any more useless than a pop from disastrous? --Mr Wednesday 18:26, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
