News contribution

kpjb's avatar

so I went to contribute a news story about that Boring tunnel in LA, but I used the "post new topic" button on the news discussion page instead of the normal "contribute news" tab from the dropdown.

Looks like the topic posted, but when you click on it, you get the ole "O noes!!!1!!! You broke CoasterBuzz. Our servers are automatically generating a bill, and you should receive it shortly."

I contributed it properly afterward, but don't see a way to delete the improper post.

Yikes, that new topic button should not appear there for news. Nice going, way to break ****! ;)

OK... should be OK now. Just a general FYI, I made a huge update to the underlying style frameworks, so you might need to do a shift-refresh for bad formatting (because I'm too lazy to do that part right). You'll definitely have to login again, too.

speaking of site issues, a dude posted a picture of steel lasso at frontier city recently and coasterbuzz claims the ride doesn't exist and is waiting for review. the thing's been there since 2008, come on dude!

What are you talking about? There are no photos in the queue. I've definitely deleted a lot of submissions lately that weren't very good though.

As far as approving database entries, maybe not be a dick about what I do with my spare time?
