  1. The ticket links are gone missing in the scheduling games !
    When we see a ticket that needs our comment, we can’t go directly to it any more.

  2. Hey jesus2099, it seems some of the recent syncing between JIRA and the Scheduling Game has gone a bit wrong. I’ll look into that and get it sorted out. For now, just keep voting – it will sort itself out eventually 🙂

  3. Just to update everyone – that problems reported above should be resolved now.
