Stumbled across an oddity on the Miniature Market website today and sent them a brief email notifying them as such:

Quote:
Just a quick heads up – looks like someone left in some debug code on the Account Information page (https://www.miniaturemarket.com/customer/account/edit/). As the page is loading, a browser prompt appears saying “edit away”.

-Adam


Not a big deal, and as a developer, I'd like to know if my code in the wild is misbehaving. I've used JS alerts many a time when debugging a webpage. In any case, this was the response I got:

Quote:
Customer will see that prompt when viewing their account if their birthday has not been entered. Once a birthday has been entered to receive birthday rewards you will no longer see that prompt when you go to your Account Information page.

Ah, the ol' "working as intended" argument. Again, not a big deal, but I thought it was funny, especially as I live and breath these sorts of interactions as part of my current work.

The Golden Camel UberBadge is a mystery. Nobody knows where it came from or how it got there.

You mean in your BGG account, when you remove everything from your wishlist, then add Caylus as a wish list 3, and then proceed to search for User "Easter Egg 2017", you get a gold camel microbadge, but upon trying to look at your microbadges, your internet browser irreparably crashes?

Don't worry, that's a feature. We are glad you are enjoying your user experience.

Thanks a lot - now I have to add all 100 games back to my wishlist
