DB error when renaming a character
« on: October 28, 2011, 12:05:37 AM »
I get the DB error page when trying to rename a character to one that already exists on that server, or to move a character to a different server where a character with that name already exists.

At least before I left, there was a unique key/index on (tu_key, [strike]char_id[/strike]name, server_id) which I'm guessing is still there. 

Possible solution
1.  Alter the "edit character"/save character logic to check for existence on the key (if either value is changed)
2.  Remove "unique" part of index

EDIT: it may have included global handle instead of tu_key.  I don't remember at this point

The unique key is still there, yes. Apparently I forgot to make that check... I'll fix it as soon as possible, hopefully this Friday. Thanks for reporting.

Just got the DB error screen when changing Jack's Hammer's server to Exalted.  Looks like he changed over correctly, but his badges weren't de-verified.  Errorbot still working? >.>

Well it seems to me that the DB error occurs when I try manually update badgers as well, and the badges Sentinel picks up won't verify. I even tried to delete at toon yesterday and got the same thing, though this morning the toon was gone.

Would at the same time send my appreciation and thanks, for all the work that TonyV and rest of the devs have been putting in lately. I am amazed over their dedication to the comunity.

This should beThe process of unverifying badges upon moving or renaming characters should be fixed now. Please let us know if it's still not working for you.

EDIT: the character name clashing on different servers is still being worked on.
