Yes, you were banned way back in April last year (when the database scans first started), for cheating during the preceding months.

When "testing" a cheat, you're still cheating. roll And you still created a mess of cheated records that I needed to clean up.

I talked to Slig about it, and agreed on the following deal:
Make a donation of 10 Euro to Dedimania. Be sure to mention your login in the payment message, then it'll be unbanned.

This goes for anyone that is truly sorry about cheating, and wishes to resume making legitimate Dedimania records with the same login. Through the donation you're at least making a positive contribution to the Dedimania system. smile

No cheaters, just a misplaced batch from an RCP-based server that wasn't detected or reported before.  Happens quite regularly with RCP unfortunately. All deleted now, thanks for the heads-up.

Yeah, you did. sad  My normal database scans yesterday already detected a lot more misplaced records batches than usual which I cleaned up then, and I just completed some special scans for the above server logins to nail the last few.
Thanks for the heads-up, and please try to avoid it happening again.

Im sorry for that, but seems to be a massive rcp problem (perhaps live) everytime the servers are full of players. i hope this will fixed soon and will report the "bug" to the rcp builders. thx

*edit: after a short test it seems to be the dedimania plugin of live. it need several minutes to load the times/records and after disable it rcp runs fine. any ideas about that?

I know, misplaced records happen with other controllers too, but a disproportionally large number (compared to the number of servers running it) are caused by RCP.

No, you'd have to talk to Sasha about that.

Re: Other records problems

Hi Slig and Xymph,

I have 2 items that need cleaning up.

For some reason there are 2 entries for Brickyard 56. The one with UID 8vtL__JKzIUotyzUP5qhJ667vW1 is not needed. In fact, I have no idea where that UID came from. I was having some troubles with a FAST plugin and I think it messed up. You can delete the entry for 8vtL__JKzIUotyzUP5qhJ667vW1.

The other one is more of a favor. I created a track named GP_Casino Royale (I_i4JDDucuFk7A6ue5HJEoQnW11), then I made some cosmetic changes and renamed it to GP_Casino (0_Md6M_0o9XvsmkEw9x_zc45jn2). The track is identical in both. Can you transfer the records for GP_Casino Royale to GP_Casino? You could also delete the records for I_i4JDDucuFk7A6ue5HJEoQnW11 as that challenge will never be used again.

Thanks!

ISTR tracks without recs are eventually pruned by a regular clean-up job.

Re: Other records problems

I seem to have lost some records on Dedimania.

In particular my Montezumas record, set in CUP mode (rounds): http://dedimania.com/tmstats/?do=stat&a … ow=RECORDS

The time I got (online, was on dedimania before) is the same as the replay on montezumas' tmx page: http://tmnforever.tm-exchange.com/main. … 19299#auto

I almost never touch RPG tracks in terms of records clean-up, since they're rarely the target of cheaters, being so overly long and all...  wink
So I don't know what happened there, if anything.
If the number of checkpoints for any records don't match the track's CP count, then they're always deleted though, as that's a controller or storage fluke.

Re: Other records problems

don't you have some sort of log or cache? The record was set on a "funpark server", but I am not 100% sure how it is written (special characters etc)

Daily backups of the database are kept for a week or so, but without more specific data it's impossible to search that due its size. And there's no point, since records that are gone (for whatever reason) cannot be restored anyway.

no, actually the controllers don't send the replays to dedimania.

Re: Other records problems

Hey admins,

I'm having a huge Dedimania problem the past days.
Out of a sudden almost all of my dedimania records disappeared and no new records are being saved.

This problem only occurs with my login "joana4ever". It's working fine with other logins.

It was working perfectly fine some weeks ago and I haven't changed anything since then.

Would be nice if you could help me.

Thanks in advance
Joana

Not just the "past days" or "some weeks", that login was banned for cheating three and a half months ago. roll

Re: Other records problems

That has to be an error in your database then. I never used any cheat at all so please check your "evidence" once again because that has to be a mistake.

I am Contracted with n!faculty so i sure know how to play properly and i would be really really stupid to cheat in any way while being contracted with such a multigaming organisation.

Impossible, there's just a week of daily backups to check back.

Would not have been bad to mention also the donation reason as i missed it until seeing your last post.

Your login is unbanned. Don't forget that the 2nd chance is also the last one.
You should be able to make records again on all servers on which you can enter.

But it is possible that you still can't enter on some servers immediatly, because :
- i don't know when Xymph will update his global blacklist, it should be fast, at most few days. You will be able to check it on : http://www.gamers.org/tmf/dedimania_blacklist.txt (without forgetting to reload). Edit: it's done.
- As indicated in the 2 posts there http://dedimania.com/SITE/forum/viewtop … 1614#p1614 , once removed from the global list then it will disapear from the various servers blacklist (which use it) when these will be restarted, which can take few days/weeks depending on each server admin.

Actually, on XAseco-powered servers the global blacklist is merged with the local one and saved, so upon restarting a once-banned login remains blacklisted. Only an explicit, manual unblacklist by the admin can address that.

Re: Other records problems

Hi Dedimania team and thanx for the great job.

This is a selfish report about how a (probably) world record on a classic demo island track disappeared.

Login : _icyrus
Track : Infinity by Panis (10EnwERPBHgMNtkOCv4r3eqWgR7) .
Time : 40.39
Record date : around 2010-07-27 21:40:00 UTC
Server : eyebosislandparadise

Just before I drove 40.46 at 2010-07-27 21:31:09 UTC and it is still recorded in the database :

http://www.dedimania.com/tmstats/?do=st … ow=RECORDS

I saw the new record (40.39) on the dedimania panel on the screen after I drove it yesterday but this morning it has disappeared.

The same problem appends 5 days ago.

Hope it can highlight a more global issue.

Regards,

TEP=CYRUS=
