@Chrulle - Had some problems this morning (~12:00 UTC), but I think that was left over from overnight/yesterday. All appears well now. No host corruption after 8 uploaded results just now.

Great job--looks like it's working fine!

My host is looking fine.

See if BBcode is working also.

[Edit
BBcode seems OK.

I still have 4 of 15 that do not have a 100/day quota. Other than that they all seem to show correct information. I wrote down their current quota and will see if it changes after they report some more work. I did not see any errors on the ones I looked at as far as results validating. I am not forcing any of them with a manual update, just going to let them run and monitor the situation.

Chrulle, do you have any plans to "manually" fix any hosts that aren't getting caught automatically? As of the last XML export (10 hours ago), I see about 1,800 hosts that are still showing invalid data. Some of them are probably no longer active. Some people probably reset the project in hopes of fixing the problem and got a new host ID. Now they can't be merged because of the bad data. It would be nice to get these hosts out of the system since they are messing up some of my stats queries. If you have no plans to do anything about them I suppose I will find a workaround on my end.

Delete the lot - they are quite simple to identify.
1800 hosts that everyone no longer has to work around.

about 24 hours later.

They seem to be improving. 2 have gotten up to 100/day. The other 3 are not there yet, but have increased from 2 to 32, 2 to 16 and 2 to 8 so they are working on it.

I would say all is OK.

Well as of right now it appears to be down to 680 hosts that are still messed up. I'm sure a few more will auto-correct themselves but eventually there will be some that will remain in their current state. It would really be great if these could be dealt with in some way as they are playing tricks with some of the queries I'm trying to write for my stats website. Trying to make a host OS breakdown table is kind of difficult when 680 hosts have some random number in the os_name field.

If you really don't plan on ever fixing it, I will have to build more analysis into the XML importer to screen out bad hosts. However I would much rather have "correct" data from the source and I would think you all would rather not have a bunch of invalid data in your database either...

Not a bad idea anyway - you don't know when a corruption might occur again, on this project or elsewhere.
