Before you release 492

490 just died mid-wiggle, with the message 'Your current puzzle changed to Gallery phase. Please stop current action and re-enter'

I've got a message in my 491: "Your current puzzle changed to Gallery phase. Would you like to re-enter the puzzle?"
My 487 and 490 are still running scripts.

sorry about that, this should hopefully be fixed now.
Please re-open this feedback if we missed a puzzle.

I tried looking up ' Gallery Phase ' on this Feedback before posting this, and only found ONLY this rather fresh entry, so I think possibly we all might need further understanding of exactly what ' Gallery Phase ' means.
All this begs the question, Why did it happen to begin with?? I woke up to find the same as above on all puzzles on multiple machines. Whatever fixed the issue also seems to have let me simply exit the Gallery Phase in the midst of which the puzzles were still processing, so no apparent loss of score or time. But the surprise was somewhat uncalled for. It would be nice to get a few answers, not merely fixes, when asked for.
Other then that, I'm glad it happened after I went to bed, rather then just before, because my rather tired body and mind would not have been very happy having to come to Feedback and reporting it while still in a vacuum concerning if it was affecting others or not. My mind immediately told me it was, as it affected more then one of my machines, but my emotions might not have been so easily satisfied.

On a side note, this puzzle's deadline is now shown as Jan. 1, 2030 at 23:00 GMT for me. Is this happening to anyone else?

nice catch, I changed those all back.

Sorry about this, something went wrong when making the deadline 2012 and a script was launched that messed everything up when trying to fix the problem.

Hopefully this won't happen again... until 2030 ;-)

Changed to Noted so people will see it. This needs to stay visible for at least 24 hours until everyone who sees the "Gallery Phase" popup has a chance to read this.

thanks B_2... this is probably a good idea in general when we resolve feedbacks (we just don't want to clutter the main feedback page with Resolved feedbacks, so if we forget to switch it after 24 hours please feel free to mark it as Resolved) Thanks!

Maybe the Feedback section of the website could be scripted to automatically close feedback items that have been resolved, after a certain period of time?

We actually never did hear what happened with this.

Why was it necessary to futz with the puzzle deadlines, and who ran un-tested scripts in a production environment?

What exactly do they teach the those computer science students at U-Dub? Not a very good resume-building incident...
