Is there a looooong delay in results? "Sticker Tracker" says 11 found, but I DEFINATELY entered 22 :thinking_face:😔

All stickers found but 3 are not reported through the games-self-tracker, only get to 19 out of 22

Stijn Claes - Nike15:10:28

I also have a suspicion that the tracker is stuck

Tom Coudyzer15:10:47

@stijn.claes , @alex is looking into it ! Woot woot!

Chrystina Nguyen, Rhythmic Technologies14:10:23

Random thought.. last year.. I was hosting random Among Games in between speakers.. Anyone interested is getting suspicious?

Peter K.15:10:12

Just wanted to report a (possible) bug on the tracker? I am stuck on 19 stickers found, even though I have found the rest of the 3. Waited 20 minutes (and more) to wait for it to update. Looks like it isn't updating the game checker properly.

Peter K.15:10:00

Thanks for the fix!

Stijn Claes - Nike15:10:59

Sure this has been fixed?

Stijn Claes - Nike17:10:55

Looks like I now got to 27 out of 22.. guess that's good enough :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:

Alex Broderick-Forster, IT Revolution, Event Staff17:10:33

haha we’ll see how long that 27 lasts!

Stijn Claes - Nike17:10:52

should I see an official confirmation from the "sticker seeker completion" app?

STICKER SEEKER UPDATE: I released a fix that will allow you to enter passwords multiple times for “stuck” passwords. Before it only accepted it once, and therefor your future attempts to reenter the password were never going to work (mwa hahahaha) Now once you get the password to stick, it will raise your count. TIP: Give it like a minute with one password to work for the best results.

Eric Swanson (EA, CarMax)16:10:56

Thanks @alex. I didn't experience a "stuck" password entry. My 22 out of 22 experience was "Success" messages every time, but tracker only reports 11. I'll compare the tracker companies listed against the ones I actually found and try re-entering them all...

Alex Broderick-Forster, IT Revolution, Event Staff16:10:46

the tricky part I noticed on yours was you registered with one email, and entered another for the passwords.

Eric Swanson (EA, CarMax)16:10:23

... it all makes sense now 💯

Javier Magaña - Walmart16:10:26

interesting... I hade the same experience, but used the same email for all. I haven't tried to do them again. FYI

Eric Swanson (EA, CarMax)16:10:06

@alex oh yeah! I am an over-achiever now! 😆

Javier Magaña - Walmart16:10:36

great success! (Borat Meme here)

Brian Marshall - CarMax17:10:35

@iseric I had the same thing... only showing 11 of 22 w/ success messages. I probably screwed it up 🙂

Alex Broderick-Forster, IT Revolution, Event Staff17:10:44

Let’s see what’s happening here Brian

Brian Marshall - CarMax17:10:37

I have a feeling it's the who I registered as vs. email address I used thing

Brian Marshall - CarMax17:10:49

OR - @iseric is sabotaging me

Alex Broderick-Forster, IT Revolution, Event Staff17:10:19

Maybe that’s how @iseric ended up with 44. He took all of yours.

Did I also mess up the emails? Not seeing all the stickers I found in the self-tracker 😅

Anshul Dubey18:10:29

I checked the games tracker it shows"22 of 22 passwords entered correctly" does it take time to get added to the daily prize drawing list? Games channel doesn't have my name being entered for daily prize drawing.

Javier Magaña - Walmart18:10:17

Seems like am an overachiver as well. Looks like a fun day @alex

@anshul.dubey they take a little time to show up. I see yours coming in now.

Tony Maimone19:10:42

I believe I have found all 22 of the stickers and used the same email. Is there any way to verify? The self checker is only showing 3 of 22....

Binita Nayak19:10:53

@alex It still doesn't work 😞 I have tried so many times that I now remember the position of the hidden stickers 😄

Binita Nayak19:10:51

it worked finally 🎉

Anshul Dubey20:10:23

@alex games channel still doesn't show my name for drawing.

Ed Schaefer20:10:12

@alex odd issue - I am seeing all 22 booth names when I check on self-tracker, but it says "20 out of 22"

Tish18:10:36

Does the sticker thing work in Chrome? I've moused over ever pixel on these expo pages and I can't find a single hidden sticker.

Tish18:10:52

Thanks. It did pop up. So now at least I know it isn't broken. 🙂

Andy Nelson20:10:54

hello - im having some issues with having the passwords being counted - how do I communicate that issue?

Marjorie Kessler (Events Staff, ITREV, she/her)20:10:31

@alex Any tips here? Does @isuanelson need to try entering the missing ones again?

Andy Nelson20:10:59

I did DM alex as well but figured maybe someone else had teh channel - I just re-submitted one but my results didnt update - right now it counts 4 of them but lists 13 > 4 of 22 passwords entered correctly > Adaptavist, Anchore, Blameless, Rollbar, Sonatype, Split, Splunk, Tricentis, StackHawk, LogDNA, Instana, Granulate, Basis Technologies

Jason A. Beranek21:10:33

I'm having the same issue. I have all 22 listed but showing me as 14 of 22 at this point.

Jason A. Beranek21:10:48

@alex: that doesn't sound ominous at all. 🙂

Andy Nelson21:10:04

@jberanek I believe @alex is incentivized via unmarked envelopes filled with cash...your move

Alex Broderick-Forster, IT Revolution, Event Staff21:10:41

And not just any cash—the greater the mix of rare, international bank notes the more motivating it is.

Craig Larsen - he/him - Solution Design Group Mpls15:10:10

Yeah, I had the same problem. About every 15 minutes I would re-enter the ones that didn’t go through. finally I got them through. Maybe we have to enter them overnight. : (

Mohamed Ali21:10:10

, then find the hidden stickers on their booth pages. ??? can somebody share a photo how to find that hidden stickers ?

Mohamed Ali21:10:38

@alex Thank you 😁

Tish21:10:36

These stickers are NOT easy to find. I applaud you guys who spent so much time moussing over ever inch of these pages... I'm giving up... Just feels more like a waste of time than fun.

Anil Sadhu21:10:05

There is a trick to find them easily. I am sure all of us doing the same.

Tish13:10:19

care to share the trick?

The self tracker is showing that I’ve gotten all 22 entries, but nothing has shown up in here yet, should I be worried? 😅

I’ve got the real tracker, and you’re a winner in my book, @joe.waid.

Alex Broderick-Forster, IT Revolution, Event Staff21:10:20

But seriously, I can see you have them all.

Daniel Cahill - Engineer - Ontario Systems22:10:18

Is there a way Im not thinking of to find out which 1 or 2 I am missing? I opened a tab for every vendor and thought I found all of them.

Joe Moretti - Synapse Wireless22:10:36

Your status will show up in #games-self-tracker and you can compare with the stickers on https://members.itrevolution.com/live/games

Daniel Cahill - Engineer - Ontario Systems22:10:27

I think there might be a bug. I filled in BMC multiple times and it isn't showing up.

Joe Moretti - Synapse Wireless22:10:10

Yeah, I had to do a few a number of times as well

Joe Waid - Manager, Delivery Engineering - Columbia Sportswear22:10:25

I found that typing each one in worked, when pasting the password in seemed to be successful only some of the time.

Daniel Cahill - Engineer - Ontario Systems22:10:27
