I think you all are being a wee bit harsh on the staff. Last I checked,
1. They are all volunteers
2. That means they are unpaid for their work here
3. They are on the East Coast
4. It's almost 1 in the morning on the East Coast
and 5. They all are stressed because they know that you are all fussing about it.

Give the team some time, and stop whining; it comes across as horribly ungrateful.

Or they could just roll back the feature until they recode it. Sure, that would mean an embarrassing about face for them, but when half of us don't even want to use this feature why should we suffer just to cover up the fact that they got it wrong the first time around?

Just a guess, but I think that will not be an option unless they also roll back the database and lose any changes to the site in the past days.

Rossy, they haven't said anything at all yet. I highly doubt they're going to pretend like nothing happened and it wasn't their fault. They're probably just waiting for the best time to bring it up.

Timezones are not relevant when this has been public knowledge for MULTIPLE days.

Depending on if the hidden comments will be viewable again if they fix the hidden comment feature. If comments are gone after they are hidden, then a rollback will be demanded practically.

In regards to 1 and 2, I guess the site gets what they pay for.

In regards to 3 and 4, I was under the impression that this was an on-call job?

I'm not sure how much time they need when the easiest solution would be to revert to the previous version of the site, at least until they fix everything wrong with this comment hiding feature.

It's sort of like if the key fob to your car had your VIN number inside, and if you find another car and change the VIN in your key fob to match, you could open that car.

(By the way -

I'll be the first to concede that car key fobs might actually be almost as insecure as this. I've heard tons of stories of things of that nature turning out to be exploitable.)

Well, I guess this is what we get when the FA staff gives us a feature that wasn't even needed, and said that they were not going to do it in the first place....

No. This was like, a really basic exploit. They shouldn't have rolled out such a badly coded feature.

They also still have not admitted that this is the reason for the site being down.

You get what you paid for. Now piss off and go fap to some porn.

it's easy to reverse hidden comments, says a site admin last I saw.

Time is irrelevant. Caffeine is a simple replacement for sleep.

Though I can imagine that A) No one is even attempting to fix this problem at the moment, and B) This will be a week-long issue and read-only mode (since this time you can't even view pages) when simply taking the feature out would have been a better idea and easier fix than putting in moar coding.

I have a solution that AngelAito said herself. Instead of adding new features we DON'T NEED, try fixing the problems the site already has. There's still plenty of bugs in the system as is, so the need to make more features that will bring more bugs.

A smart coder would simply use an "isDeleted" flag to hide the comment rather than delete or update to blank. Thus any abuse can be tracked.

A smart coder would, anyway.

There aren't enough updates or crazy twists to make me enjoy this. :( It was interesting at first, but now I just want to upload my art and get the refs to work on new arts. :<

I'm surprised we haven't gotten the generic and stereotypical "I WANT FA BACK SO I CAN LOOK AT PORN AND FAP! >:C" reply here yet.
