Publishers showing up twice in rewards menu

bug

#1

Description of the issue:

Site shows up twice in the brave rewards page. The double entry also causes the percentages to not make sense

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Not sure. Seems to be random other than the fact that it is a youtube channel.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
Only one entry

Reproduces how often:

This was the first time I noticed it. It happened as shown in the screenshot and it also happened for youtube.com itself

Brave Version(about:brave):

Version 0.58.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) unknown (64-bit)

Additional Information:

This is on Manjaro. Which is known to have its issues with brave.

@drose2211,
Thanks for pointing this out to us. Forwarding this to the Rewards team right now. Also cc @sriram for additional input.


#3

Looks like it may be this issue:


#4

Just curious, what is going to happen at the time donations will be made? How will rewards calculate the contributions if all the percentages are off?


#5

We actually have a fix for this set to get pushed out today. Let me know if the issue is resolved after the update.


Release Channel update 0.58.21 is LIVE!

I have updated now. I haven’t noticed any additional double entries, but the previous entries still exist.


#7

@drose2211,
That is to say (for example) that Philly D still appears twice in your a-c table?


#8

That is correct. A few others as well.


#9

But removing one of the duplicates for any of these sites works, correct? When Brave is relaunched, the duplicate entries don’t remain, do they?


#10

So removing duplicates had some unintended results. I was having a known issue where some sites could not be excluded from the rewards menu even after clicking “x”. This includes the duplicates. After removing the duplicates didn’t work I attempted to remove a non-duplicate site. That site was removed, but the entire list got rearranged. Duplicates are still present, but almost every site including the duplicates is now showing 0%. I will also note again that this is on Manjaro. I loaded up windows where I also have brave installed and am not having the duplicates issue and am seemingly able to remove any site I want. Curious if it is possible to delete the entire list and start new? My contribution date is stuck on 12/11/18 so the sites never reset monthly.


#11

@drose2211,
Thanks for the info. Not sure about deleting the entire list (I believe there’s a feature request open for this right now) by way of option or setting. You could create a fresh profile and start from scratch (with respect to your Rewards list).

Hold off for just a bit so I can inform the Rewards team about this and see if they have any suggestions.


#12

Just an update on this. The rewards list randomly emptied itself. So its essentially a clean list now with new sites being added. The only difference now is that all the sites are stuck at 0% and do not change no matter how long I am on the page.

EDIT: The contribution date seems to have fixed itself as well. Now showing 2/19/2019
