VotingTrouble

The bounty program web site has poor error handling.

It gives the same "technical difficulties" diagnostic in all of the constraints checked with triggers:

  • Your reward votes on this issue would exceed 100%.
  • No votes on issues created after the current pay period
  • other internal errors.

When you get the "oops" message, check to see if your vote actually worked. If so, the problem is harmless.

Otherwise, report the problem in the #bounties channel in discord. Note that the error message itself isn't all that helpful. We need to know exactly what you were trying to do such as log in or cast a specific vote.

Everybody is more than welcome to pitch in and fix these usability paper cuts in bounty issue #491.

July 31 Database Problems

We (Dan, David, Jim) think we fixed it:

  • 26891c4 2018-08-04 09:30:44 -0500 trust_cert: use utf8 to match github_users

Symptoms

If you see Uncaught exception was thrown while processing this request. or cannot prepare sql statement you are not alone. Report the problem in the #bounties channel in discord. Note that the error message itself isn't all that helpful. We need to know exactly what you were trying to do such as log in or cast a specific vote.

Diagnosis and treatment

The mysql database started reporting Table 'xataface.trust_cert' doesn't exist Jul 31 16:08:33. This coincides with some work on converting some of the tables to unicode as part of the following commits:

  • 3934d16 2018-07-30 14:35:13 +0000 Hide weight field when entering votes
  • d62bad1 2018-07-27 12:32:44 -0500 budget, reward: don't retrospectively drop votes
  • ddc1abe 2018-07-27 12:25:19 -0500 budget_wt: use frozen weights where available
  • e146005 2018-07-27 12:22:06 -0500 utf8 charset fixes
  • 2b6d579 2018-07-27 11:37:16 -0500 rewards: use reward_vote.weight where available

One of the more useful diagnostics, Turn off 'foreign_key_checks' and try again. started showing up 2018-08-03T06:25:24.265059Z after some flailing around with service mysqld restart and InnoDB Troubleshooting and such.

Toggling set foreign_key_checks=0 and then set foreign_key_checks=1 seems to make the symptoms go away for a while. Currently, only a very limited number of people can login an issue SQL commands to the database. Ask around in #bounties to contact them.
