Alfonso Nieto-Castanon submitted a Comment to Problem 1774. Free passes for everyone!

Freepass functionality has not been working for the past few weeks due to a change in the underlying Cody machinery. The fix to get freepasses working again is very simple but I am hesitant whether I should take this change in Cody machinery as a sign from above and let this problem quietly expire. If you believe freepasses are useful please let me know in the comments, and if you believe they interfere too much with the normal Cody balance and I should let this functionality expire please let me know as well. Other thoughts/suggestions are also welcome (I could implement a maximum number of freepasses per user per week, for example, if that would help avoid abuses)

Alfonso Nieto-Castanon submitted a Comment to Problem 2033. poll: would you like the regexp (?@cmd) functionality to be banned in Cody?

This problem is also working correctly again after a few-weeks glitch. Rescored the last few votes to get those right.

This problem has not been giving the correct scores for a few weeks now but it is working again. You might have been led to believe that you phrases were funnier than they _really_ were if you have submitted in the last few weeks. Rescoring now to fix that :)

note: as a side effect of the glitch solutions submitted between May and June 2015 had been incorrectly scored so please disregard those

Sorry for the discontinuity. This problem is working again (changes in Cody were interfering with our old way of assigning not-size-based scores to solutions). Let me know if you still run into any issues.

Just an update, the "Test reference solution" button issue has been fixed now and they are working on some of the other issues (thanks Cody team!)

Funny behavior of possible over-reactive spam filter in Cody: changing this code to use instead of char(str2num('[49 36 49.... 36 50 57')) the actual char array '1$1...$29' will get you an "inappropriate content" flag... I admit no regexprep string should ever have that many dollar signs...

there may be a few incorrect tests here (e.g. test 2 with 'X31.6X' and qty=111 should return '531.69' if I am interpreting correctly)

Hi Ned, it seems that we are no longer seeing the error message strings when a solution fails. This makes it kind of hard to debug when not working from a computer. Any ideas if this could be fixed?

Perhaps relatedly, the 'Test solution' button when creating a new problem does not seem to work any longer. I tested this on a couple of computers (both using Chrome), anybody else experiencing this?

You are right, it seems the entire "using and alternative function name" issue has been fixed (this is fantastic news, that was getting a bit out of hand). Also now verifyCode seems to be obfuscated using .p functions as well! Perhaps we should re-open a new hacking series to test the new system. This is going to be so much fun!!

it would seem that the recently added test#2 is incorrectly defined
