    I'm going to have to agree here. There a ton of Vbulletin sites out there so we're not talking about some obscure piece of software. I am a web developer and when you have huge amounts of code being rendered on a page (e.g. when we all look at the TM) it's just not that hard to find and fix something like that. I mean **** if someone wants to give me a copy of the DB and code or some sort of access I'll use my personal time to try and fix it.

    The problem is that the trade manager is a custom code written by a previous member of the tech team. When vBulletin does these updates, it totally messes with these custom codes, as they are not tested for by the vBulletin team. Sort of like when Windows does an update but doesn't verify that the new version will work with any of the older versions. Or Oracle if you know how those updates work. They never go smoothly or according to plan.

    Pete is the only one that has access to the code. We have reached out to him, but all we know is that he is trying to fix it.

    Listen, I don't have a simple answer to solve the issues. I have seen the requests, including increasing the PM limits, but that is all code work that Pete would have to do. I highly doubt that any bench points will be given for trades done via PM.

    Just do your best, trade with trusted trading partners and we will keep asking Pete for updates.

    Steph and I will keep asking.

    I agree with points not given for PM trades. Another alternative would be to see how many overall trades a member made since joining. I think that would seem fair to all.

    Hi Bobby, unfortunately that would take a lot of code work for Pete, and at this time I think his efforts are better off with getting it fixed so that we can move forward.

    If any of the MOD team hears anything, we will post an update.

    Why doesn't Pete get in touch with Jaydub and talk to him about what is going on . He has offered to help.I always thought an update was to make things better but since the update the Bench has fell apart.

    Hi Leon,

    You can ask Pete that, as I cannot speak for him. As far as the update, it was a vBulletin update, not a Bench update. As I stated above, vBulletin does not test compatibility of custom code, which is what the TM and other things on The Bench are. No, all updates do not make things better unfortunately.

    Please stay safe out there. Everyone!

    Thanks,

    jflan702 - I appreciate the effort. However, finding out how many trade were made is a simple query.
    It would take no effort at all to a novice if they have access to the database. This is really discouraging to a host of faithful members.

    Bobby- I get your frustration. It's more frustrating to John and I that there is nothing we can do to fix it. If there was, we would have already. Unfortunately all we can do is what we have been doing: checking in with Pete to see if he has an update. Just as you guys don't have access to the database at the moment that also means that John and I don't have access to the database either. Unfortunately we don't have Mark Wing around here anymore. He was the one that created the Trade Manager code that The Bench uses.

    Jaydub-reach out to Pete here and see if your assistance could be helpful. I've had more success with contacting Pete through FB so if you want that avenue PM me your contact information and I'll send it onto Pete.

    stephj24, I don't actually know who Pete is on the site, is his user name literally just 'Pete'?

    Jesus H I'm starting to think The Bench needs to rethink how it manages the site.
