Hey guys,
Jack from Inkling here. As was noted in the comments, there was talk of a bug in the accounting dealing with the uh-oh closing and reopening and then re-closing of this market. After looking through the logs, I found there was a bug that affected a few of the traders here. Because of this, I’ve changed the balances of those trades (all in the positive direction). If anyone else thinks they should have gotten a refund or didn’t get all the money back that they should have, please contact us and I’ll take a look.

Could you check on my trades for this one. I don’t have them but at the time I remember thinking something was off. My balance swung considerably after it closed.

Hey Miller,
Checked the logs and you were missing 1500 from the bug, so your account is credited with those missing funds. Thanks for letting us know!

Hi, question on this one: did the uh oh feature close at the right time? I made a trade at 8pm on Oct 15th, which has now been refunded. Shouldn’t that have been pre-uh oh close?

I must of messed up. I set the time to 2 a.m. but maybe it defaulted the day to the 15th and not the 16th. I’ll try and re-do (I’ve never tried doing so before, so, fingers crossed).

malcmur   •   Wed Oct 29 2014 at 01:38pm PDT

Hey, it didn’t work to redo, did it? Perhaps it’s not doable.

I had some trades that got reversed, but it looks to me like they got reversed twice.

malcmur   •   Wed Oct 29 2014 at 02:01pm PDT

Weird. I have no reversed trades on this one.

just_the_inklings   •   Wed Oct 29 2014 at 02:21pm PDT

I redid it a couple weeks ago, moving the date to the right day. If that didn’t fix it I’m not sure what’s wrong. Sorry.

BeteNoire   •   Wed Oct 29 2014 at 03:26pm PDT

I had some trades that were reversed when you put it in the first time. I believe that got reversed again when you put it in the second time, which I have been trying to get the inkling administrator to examine because the second time created a big loss, I think. I could be wrong, but I think there may be an accounting glitch in the system.

malcmur   •   Wed Oct 29 2014 at 02:23pm PDT

Ok, thanks, thought it would reverse, but no worries.
