Interesting result latest update

The export/import issue I had submitted as a bug, is solved and I was able to export and import the realm in question. Great stuff!! Thanks!

What is really weird, is what the update did to every single one of my realms:

Many of my custom tag domains had its tags duplicated. Seemingly in every single realm (have not opened all yet, but so far with out exception) has had one of more of its tag domains tags duplicated, perfectly, and in its entirety.

So example of the error:

Domain 'Community Type': Tag 'Encampment'
Domain 'Community Type': Tag 'Fortification'
Domain 'Community Type': Tag 'Other'
Domain 'Community Type': Tag 'Outpost'
Domain 'Community Type': Tag 'Racial City'
Domain 'Community Type': Tag 'Settlement'

So now I have to go in and delete the entry, what is even weirder, that I have now topics using both the old and new tag, yet there was just one when I created them. I have set structure I apply to a new realm when I create it.

Nothing is broken, but it is a fair amount of tedious work to go back through and delete al the duplicate tags in every realm.

This only happens on my tag domains I created.

I had the samething happen a couple of updates ago when they came out with alignment tags and I had created one prior.

Yeah with further work it is not every realm, but near half. which is odd in itself, but cool enough.

It is a mixture of my custom tags and default tags.

I have gone thru half my realms, and fixed it all. Also used this to run the link fix up and fix all the little issues as well, so all in all a good exercise lol.

But I am really happy my export/import issue was solved!

For several older versions of Realm Works, importing would in certain cases create duplicate tags in your realm. However, in those older versions of Realm Works, duplicate tags were perfectly legal, so Realm Works wouldn't warn you about this.

Things have changed in the latest version of Realm Works (build 240). Duplicate tags are no longer allowed, and importing no longer creates duplicate tags (or at least it shouldn't).

Based on what you've said here, it sounds like perhaps you did some imports with previous versions of Realm Works where duplicate tags were created, but perhaps you weren't aware that the duplicates were created because Realm Works didn't flag this to your attention. Now that you've upgraded to the latest version, they are being flagged to your attention. Does that sound accurate? Or does something else appear to be going on?

More generally, has anyone reading this thread experienced any cases where the latest version of Realm Works (build 240) creates duplicate tags on import into a realm that previously had no duplicate tags? If so, that is a bug, since import should no longer be creating duplicate tags, so please let us know :)

For me it wasn't anything I imported, it was a realm I had been working on for a few years. I started it before RW had alignment tags so I created my own alignment tags. When RW added alignment tags the two didn't play well with each other. I did report the bug and it was eventually fixed in one of the updates.

You are right in some cases, I did do some imports. How ever it has happened to realms that have never seen an import.

However it is not as wide spread as I first thought and prompted a clean up.

Again, if that's the payment for my import/export solution? worth it.

Another possibility might be game system conversion... like import, game system conversion would in some cases create duplicate tags in older versions of Realm Works, but no longer does that in the most recent version.

For the realms that you didn't import anything into but still got duplicate tags, did you run game system conversion on them at some point in the past?

Conversation is probably the key, I converted all realms away from legacy.
