Found a problem with the site that isn’t urgent? Report it here and the Elves will pick it up when they have a moment.

I don’t know if it’s a bug or if it’s intended, but on one’s name where you can then access the drop-down to manage team, etc. instead of a space between your forename and surname there is a backtick. Again, I don’t know if this is intended or not. (Can repo. on IE, Edge and Chromium)
Also, on mobile there doesn’t appear to be any way to access the forums besides appending
/forumsto the url. Not sure if I’m just blind and can’t see the button though.19 Sep 17 at 11:15 am #26808AnonymousInactive
With thanks to Bottersnike who is taking the lead on debugging this year. We think the mobile menu issue is fixed now, but do let us know if there are any browser issues.22 Sep 17 at 11:56 am #27123AnonymousInactive

Very minor: On the Lesson Plan page (https://2017.cipherchallenge.org/resources/lesson-plan/), the Beginners Guide to Codebreaking link is https://2017.cipherchallenge.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/A-beginners-guide-to-codebreaking.pdf, but the file can’t be found as it’s really named A-beginners-guide-to-codebreaking-1.1b.pdf (found via other pages, e.g. Media).
Love the site, Harry, can’t wait to get started…26 Sep 17 at 3:27 pm #27396AnonymousInactive
There’s no limit to team description lengths. I broke the page formatting by setting our description to ‘muhahahaha’ (etc) for about 1000 characters. Also, 100 characters is a really long length for team names. My teacher chewed me out because apparently ‘Roses are Red, I love Caligula, There’s no rhyme please help, Fourteen peninsulas’ wasn’t memorable enough.27 Sep 17 at 5:17 pm #27519AnonymousInactive
it seems that the link to last years cipher challenge seems to work, but the page is very much empty, and none of the challenges are accessible. similarly, there are no other previous challenges available, except 2002-2004 via external websites. could these be made accessible directly so that we have something to try out.28 Sep 17 at 6:43 pm #27812AnonymousInactive
aliman – hopefully this has all been sorted now and you can see all of last years challenges. Before that, sorry no they are not available.04 Oct 17 at 4:28 pm #28488AnonymousInactive
Not necessarily a bug, but in Challenge 0, Tacitus’ book is spelled “De vita et moribus lulii Agricolae” when it should be spelled “De vita et moribus iulii Agricolae”. Google autocorrects this when you look it up.05 Oct 17 at 3:28 pm #28889AnonymousInactive
I’ve submitted a correct answer for Challenge 1 part A, and I’ve deciphered part B, but there is not box to submit my answer to B on the challenge page. Is this a bug or a feature added to reduce load for the first challenge start?05 Oct 17 at 3:29 pm #28895AnonymousInactive

I can’t submit my answer to task B. Is this a bug? I’ve already submitted task A.05 Oct 17 at 3:29 pm #28923AnonymousInactive
