Bug in the new distribution was there and has been fixed


James had to spend today fixing a bug that we found in the new distribution code. What it was doing is if you had been using an address that you used before, or that you are using on 2 different teams, then the distribution calculator would actually pay you your overall FAH credits on that account. So James was getting paid 1.5 million FAH credits worth from oct 17-19 and we caught it soon enough to were i only got 74000 FAH credits for free.

We have fixed the bug and have gone through all the last 4 days worth of payouts to make sure nobody else was affected by this and we have confirmed that only me and james were getting the bonuses. We went ahead and sent all the FLDC we received back to a new distribution address that will then be sent out to the distribution server address to distribute all lost funds from James and me getting unearned FAH credits.

We have a complete breakdown of how we figured out what everyone lost. Basically we removed ourselves from any earnings over the 3 days that the bug was active and redid the calculations. we then took the difference of what everyone was paid and what they should have been paid (without me and james on there) and sent the difference to the addresses. here is the excel file

This is why the distribution was late today, we wanted to make sure that the bug is completely gone and James has eradicated it. I am just now sending out both the reimbursement pay and the 10/20 pay. Looks like the LTB distribution server is down again tonight so look for these payments in the morning. Sorry this was the first missed day of distribution but we had to make sure everything was alright. Please as always let us know if there are any other issues and/or bugs that you catch. We caught this one super early so that is a good thing.
