Things are partially fixed now. When it writes the log and updates the database, it will now use the last timestamp in the timeline for the endtime, assuming there is a timeline. Otherwise, it uses the present time. Apparently, it keeps a timeline only if time controls are in use. I may want to change that.

The other problem is that write_log.php is being called too often. I have to look into each instance where it is being called incorrectly and fix that. The difficulty in fixing this is that, thanks to the complexity of the script, I have lost sight of everything that is going on. I made updates to Game Courier to update the logs and database for finished games when any data is incorrect, but there are still bugs in that.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
