Submissions count bug and rainbows

We upgraded the site again yesterday after a bug was confirmed in the New Submissions counter.

Thanks again to Zeikcied for figuring out the exact circumstances that would make the problem occur.

It turns out that multiple pages uploaded to one submission were each being counted as entire new submissions. But that would only affect the counter for users seeing the submission notification as an Update, not a new submission upload. Wild.

It was a hard one to reproduce on the dev server as we had no clue how to make the bug happen, which was the reason we hadn't been able to fix that ongoing problem until now.

This is not to be confused with the previous Submissions count bug; https://inkbunny.net/journalview.php?id=11742

Hopefully that's the last of them!

So now for the official (and very short) list:

Updates

* Fixed: Another bug in the New Submissions page counter has been squashed (see above).  Please let us know if your New Submissions or Notices counts seem wrong.

* Added: Equestria background by Javkiller (thanks to Kantra). For more info see https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=117216 Go to your Account Settings or click the links at the top right to change backgrounds.

* Changed/Optimised: Various improvements to the Site Announcement system. The event date in the countdown was displayed incorrectly (always showed system date, not your local date). Event start time is now displayed in your local time and the date is omitted (date wasn't useful as notices are never more than 24hrs ahead of a shutdown event). We now cache database query results for notice updates. We now allow multiple tabs on one computer to share the one update request between them. In the previous version, every tab sent its own request for status updates every 2.5 mins. Now it doesn't matter how many tabs you have open, they will all be updated by a single shared request.

* Fixed/optimised: Other minor code improvements and fixes were made.

That's all. Probably no more updates for at least a week or two now. :3 *collapses*

Nice to see someone actually maintaining their site proactively for a change! ;3

And how many times have you been told not to go 6 hours on a 5 hour energy drink?!

Nice work! I know how frustrating un-reproducable bugs can be.

Here's a new bug for you :) When changing the backgound in the settings page, it resets to the previous one as soon as you navigate out of the page. Changing with the arrows on top right works fine on the other hand.

Yeah that could explain it but also any submission notices older than 90 days will be removed automatically.

Yeah... when this notices update rolled out, it deleted all reply comments. I noticed that when I went from 96, to 46, while leaving all journals, and first comments. Every person that replied to me, that message was deleted.
