[fixed] Comments bug
Liam Dawe 6 Jul, 2018

Just FYI, there is an issue right now with comments going to the mod queue that aren't supposed to.

Will look over what happened tonight.

I briefly had access to the admin notifications as well. Maybe related?

You mean it popped up in your nofitications bar or you could actually view the admin?

mcphail 6 Jul, 2018

Yes. It was like a chat panel with all the editors and discussion about upcoming articles. I stumbled across it because my notification icon listed something like "1 new admin notification". It is gone now.

Liam Dawe 6 Jul, 2018

Interesting! Will be taking a look as soon as I am back.

Rather confused how that could happen.

Liam Dawe 6 Jul, 2018

This should now be solved.

I no longer see the prompt telling me my comment is going to the admin queue

What was the issue ? Just curios

Liam Dawe 6 Jul, 2018

Still going over it. Essentially, an editor had someone log into their account. This person adjusted the Supporter user group, to be forced into the mod queue. Unsure on their motives, not seeing anything else done.

Ouch.
Like something deliberate ?
Or just a mistake ?

Quite obviously deliberate, but they didn't do much as I said, only seemed to adjust user groups which I've re-adjusted. Obviously the editor has changed their password now and the session was destroyed for whoever it was, so no real harm done.

Currently improving a few back-end things, to keep tabs on any and all editor activity to prevent any future issues.
