Thanks for the explanation. One mystery has been struck off my list.

Bug Reports / Two search engine bugs
« on: November 11, 2021, 11:28:48 »
I found two and a half bugs related to module searching.

1. When searching modules via Artist Search with "Guessed Artist" option selected, it appears that "Most recently archived" and "Least recently archived" sorting options in the "Change Order" drop-down list work exactly the opposite: "Most recently archived" option shows least recently archived modules first, while "Least recently archived" option shows most recently archived modules first. These two options are swapped.
Example:
https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=search&search_type=guessed_artist&query=Djamm&page=0&order=3
and
https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=search&search_type=guessed_artist&query=Djamm&page=0&order=4

2. When browsing modules by license (https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_license&query=publicdomain), the "Change License" drop-down list selector works as intended: it actually shows modules licensed under chosen license, the title above 6 browsing options ("Random", "New additions", etc.) displays chosen license correctly, but in two cases the "Change License" selector doesn't display the chosen license correctly:
1) when "Non-commercial" option is selected, it says "Non-commercial No Derivatives";
2) when "Non-commercial Share Alike" option is selected, it says "Non-commercial".
In other cases, the "Change License" selector works fine: when "Non-commercial No Derivatives" option is selected, it says "Non-commercial No Derivatives"; when "Share Alike" option is selected, it says "Share Alike"; etc.

2a. There are, however, several modules that are not licensed under chosen license, but they still appear in search results. Only two examples are illustrated.

Feedback & Suggestions / Re: Module by artist on TMA without link
« on: October 26, 2021, 23:09:55 »
Understood. Thank you very much for going through my massive list. And could you please then link https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=35096 and https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166459 to Maktone's profile too, like you did with other modules from the list, so that everything would become (almost) perfect? Thanks in advance.

I did some research on unlinked Maktone's modules.
Maktone's profile is: https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_profile&query=69469

A. These modules should be linked to Maktone's profile:
1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=44281
2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=52130
3) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166060
4) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166065
5) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166408
6) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166470
7) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166471
8.) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166476
9) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166478
10) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166507
11) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166508
12) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187178
13) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187525
14) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187640
15) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187641
16) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187642
17) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=188358

B. Next are pairs of duplicate modules. Both modules in each of the following pairs are unlinked. One module from each pair should be linked. I did a checksum comparison between the following modules and the modules from archives that were available on Maktone's official website. Today these archives are available by the Wayback Machine, see links [1] and [2] between this section (B) and section C:
1.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=35096MD5 correct
1.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166440MD5 wrong
Spotted difference: sample texts.

2.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=36346MD5 correct
2.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166481MD5 wrong

3.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=54801MD5 wrong
3.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166414MD5 correct
Spotted differences: title is missing in 54801; different notes in patterns 6 (row 6 on channel 2) and 2 (row 42 on channel 2).
Commentary: 54801 seems to be corrupted.

[1] https://web.archive.org/web/20120427213122fw_/http://sidchip.ath.cx/~maktone/777/maktone_all_mod.zip – all MOD modules
[2] https://web.archive.org/web/20120221220435fw_/http://sidchip.ath.cx/~maktone/777/maktone_all_xm.zip – all XM modules

C. Next are pairs of duplicate modules again. But the difference is that the second module in each pair is already linked to Maktone's profile. If in some pair the first module is preferred over the second, then it should be linked. I did the same checksum comparison routine that I did in section B:
1.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=51334MD5 wrong (not linked)
1.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=106828MD5 correct (linked)
Spotted difference: title (two spaces between words "on" and "top" in 51334).

2.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=53037MD5 correct (not linked)
2.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=109348MD5 wrong (linked)
Spotted difference: sample texts.

3.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=55852MD5 correct (not linked)
3.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=108236MD5 wrong (linked)
Spotted difference: sample texts.

4.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=57519MD5 wrong (not linked)
4.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=111470MD5 correct (linked)
Spotted difference: sample texts.

5.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=57689MD5 wrong (not linked)
5.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=108985MD5 correct (linked)
Spotted difference: title is missing in 57689.

6.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=57876MD5 correct (not linked)
6.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=144870MD5 wrong (linked)

7.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=60056MD5 correct (not linked)
7.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=112213MD5 wrong (linked)
Spotted difference: sample texts.

8.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166061MD5 wrong (not linked)
8.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=54945MD5 correct (linked)
Spotted difference: sample texts.

9.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166459MD5 correct (not linked)
9.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=54798MD5 wrong (linked)
Spotted difference: different notes in patterns 2 (row 6 on channel 1), 0, 1, 6 (rows 6, 14, 22, 30, 38, 46, 54 on channel 1), 3 and 7 (rows 6, 14, 22, 30, 38, 46 on channel 1).
Commentary: 54798 seems to be corrupted.

D. These modules should be unlinked from Maktone's profile:
1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=35343 (86260 bytes) – wrong version of castle.mod, correct is https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=110742 – duplicate of https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=35334 – real author is Matt Furniss (proof: https://www.exotica.org.uk/mediawiki/index.php?title=Special:Modland&title=Special%3AModland&md=qsearch&qs=castle.mod&pg=1). It is also incorrectly linked to the artist profile of Semtex (https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_profile&query=69642).
2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=57269 (68076 bytes) – wrong version of simple.mod, correct is https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187178 – real author is unknown (proof: https://www.exotica.org.uk/mediawiki/index.php?title=Special%3AModland&md=qsearch&qs=simple+blood).

The Lobby / Incorrect module assignment
« on: August 07, 2021, 03:16:43 »
This module:
https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=136469
is assigned to the artist profile of Daedalus (ID: 69079). But Daedalus is not an author of this module. There is even a message from Daedalus:
Quote
This is not a song by me, Daedalus. If you know how to relocate it, or delete it please let me know - Daedalus

Today I opened my favourites list with expanded details and accidentally found a bug: module channel counter doesn't show the number of channels used in every single module on the list (screenshot attached).

I tried:
  • logging in my profile;
  • opening favourites lists of other TMA members;
  • browsing other pages of favourites lists than page 1.
None of the above fixed the bug.

There is also an identical problem (described by tzukidoji) with updating the Artist Statistics section (see the picture made on 21st of January). Today, on 27th of January, the problem is still in place (statistics are not updating).
