Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ entry 10.21:
I get error messages when I try to enter ratings or comments on the Big List.
Various sanity checks and abuse traps are used to prevent such things
as comment spam, fraudulent ratings, machine-generated ratings and
comments, etc. This may result in errors messages such as:
- Corrupt argument ...
- Phase error ...
- Insufficient arguments ...
- Improper argument type
- Disallowed vendor for this ip
Should errors persist, please report the circumstances to firstname.lastname@example.org
giving date/time of the error and the type of browser you are using.
Most of these errors can be prevented by observing the following:
- Use a standard web browser, correctly installed and configured.
- Don't enter ratings or comments via an anonymous proxy or with a
plug-in which disables the HTTP_REFERER. (If you don't know what these
are, it probably does not apply to you.)
- Don't use a computer system on the premises of a listed vendor to
enter ratings and comments about that vendor or any competitors.
- Click SUBMIT only once. If you click more
than once "just to be sure", you may very well elicit one
of the above error messages.
If you continue to have difficulty entering ratings and comments, please
write to email@example.com and explain the circumstances. If necessary,
we will enter the ratings and comments for you manually.
