The main problem here seems to be that the news has been submitted as generic news and not specifically for a league.
When you submit news for a league, you should select "League news" and then the concerning league in the next drop down.
If you click the Add News button on the league info page, this selection should be set for you.
Have you missed that, or is that not working as you would expect?
Other league news does seem to be posted as such, so it doesn't look like a bug at first sight.
We have wondered about this before and we're a bit reluctant to make the Rockingham SMX freely available due to the costs that were involved to get it laser scanned. We're not really looking forward to seeing it recreated for free in Assetto or something like that.
Perhaps after a while we will change our opinion, but for now the Rockingham SMX won't be included in the SMX pack.
hmm would you be so kind as to give an url of a forum section, or make a screenie of one such situation?
I think what you're seeing are either remnants of removed threads, or it's related to this auto-hide feature for obvious spam (and something might not be functioning properly).
I've updated the registration and details pages now with a bit more info.
Though I agree you should be able to use an entire phonebook as a password, there are upper limits with LFS. For us it's due to packet sizes. Game passwords are sent in typical LFS packets which are limited in size. But I agree it could be implemented in a stronger manner.
Web passwords are sent to a separate, locked down host that only hashes passwords, very strongly. Also using a packet structure with an upper limit for password. But I think 48 bytes is long enough tbh. With no character type limitation. If you're worried about THAT being broken, then I can enable two factor auth for you (the one-time pass kind, like e.g. Google authenticator tool produces)
I've disabled comments for demo users. You now must be logged in and have at least an S1 license to be able to comment. So that also goes for demo setups. Ideally I'd allow demo racers to comment on demo setups, but I'm afraid that'll be abused.
Everyone can still post comments for their own setups though.
Rating has also been disabled for demo racers, for the same reason. I'm considering allowing this again if I can use a better averaging algorithm that takes abuse into account.
Finally I've removed all spammy setup comments (4 or so, out of 125).
I'm a bit confused by the report, but the gear ratios in the first screenshot are all wrong at least and not drivable.
So I'm investigating what's going wrong with the hotlap setup extraction. That's where it appears to go wrong.
I've added all setups that have been uploaded to the forum over the years, as a starting point for the database.
I've added a track preview + short name to the main setups page. You see it when you hover over a track name.
I'm wondering if it should show whenever a track is highlighted, not just when you hover over it.
If you are referring to the hotlap setup import, they are regarding all your hotlaps. Not just wr's. In fact, wr's are in no way used for the setups section (except for calculating laptime differences).
