How to report a bug in Microcosm

Posted on
  • We are using Github for bugs and issues.

    Github is where we host our open source code (for the front-end project).

    You shouldn't use Microcosm to report bugs, as what if the bug is "Microcosm doesn't let me make a comment".

    You shouldn't use LFGSS to report bugs, as Microcosm is intended for a wider audience and it may not be appropriate, plus we won't be able to assign it internally and will not be able to track the bug as we fix it.­/issues

    That is the only place where you should report a bug... though if you do reach us by another method, that is where we're going to put the bug report.

    You may need to register on Github to make a bug report, but please do so... we really appreciate bug reports as they are the bread and butter feedback that is going to enable us to build a great product (the very product that will power LFGSS).

    When you report a bug, don't assume it's self-evident. "It's broken" isn't as helpful as providing us with a URL to what it broken and describing what you were trying to do and expected to happen, but what happened instead.

    @mands on LFGSS is going to help us organise and manage our bug list. Please help her do so. If she asks for more info, please give it. She'sa volunteer and helping with bugs is definitely not a glamorous thing to do, so we really appreciate her help.



  • Would be appreciated if you could provide as much detail on steps you took to encounter the bug and therefore helps in recreating it.

    A suggested template to use....

    Title: (already a field)

    (Then within the Details field)
    Steps to recreate:

    Expected result:

    Actual result:

  • Developers confirmed for fast turnaround on bugs and merging pull requests. Thanks :)

  • Not so fast for actually seeing it in production though. So many caches!

    I'll flush a few of them now.

  • No worries. Other PR this morning 'tis already live it seems though. :)

  • This one should be live now

  • Yup

  • Though you know Tab and then Enter is also 2 keys and always worked... and usually works on all sites even that don't have the JavaScript keyboard shortcut.

  • Though you know Tab and then Enter is also 2 keys

    Yeah, but I'm laaaaazy and have muscle memory from Github, $other_bugtracker, my own stuff :)

    [tab+enter] usually works on all sites

    Curiously not in my experience as it requires them to be sane enough to change the tabindex, alas.

  • Today and Following both not working for me

  • Still? They seem fine to me.

  • Most likely not a bug but an error on my part. I cant seem to long into my own account any more @Jameshk I believe I'm using the same email address and have tried all the others I can think of too.
    Anything I can do to get it back?

  • @Velocio any chance you can help? Have searched the forum but cant find a solution.
