Cloud variables are refusing to change

If you look at my Browser Survey project, when somebody votes, it adds 1 to the cloud variable containing the number of votes for that browser. It also adds their username to an encoded variable containing who voted (it's all numbers). However, when looking at the cloud data log, only the browser variable changes. The voted variable isn't changing. I then tried voting for Safari, Firefox and IE (although I cringed at the last one), and they also appeared not to save. Chrome is the only variable that is saving properly.

Probably report it here also. I don't know what's up with them…

Hmm, that's strange. I tried to add a vote for Firefox, but my vote isn't reflected in the cloud data log. I could only add a vote for Chrome. I wonder what's going on.

Sadly, my forum signature was eaten by an evil kumquat.

Cloud variables are refusing to change

I have just made a very important discovery:

Hacking my way through the network logs, I found that the JSON code for the cloud variables looks like this:
{"variables":[{"name":"☁ chrome","value":"21"}],"lists":[]}
(source)

This means that the variables aren't saving properly on the SERVER end.

Look, I understand that cloud variables are a mess right now, but we can't pressure the ST to fix it until the offline editor is done.

Network tab of the Chrome dev console.

I was trying to find how to embed CVs on my site using HTTP requests, so I needed to do a bit of hacking.

Something went wrong while creating the variables, and since now the server does not know about the variables, it's not saving them. Trying to figure out what broke during the variable creation process.

I'm trying to make the variable creation process more robust. Meanwhile, just delete the variable, and create a cloud variable with the exact same name. That should work.

Mine even refuses to create cloud variables! When I try, it does not create the variable!

im so ocd about ip addresses

I enjoy coding, writing electronic music, building computers and servers, and playing the piano. I am a big fan of F-777's music, you should really check it out.

I have written a few semi-common pieces of code that are used in scratch projects, like scratchapi.

I'm kind of lonely, I'd like a bit of attention, if that's possible.

The offline editor is the least of their priorities…

Thanks, but this thread is very old and already resolved - please don't bump old, no longer relevant threads.
