Time spent in jail: 0d 8h 7m 11s (-29231s)

that's right, that is what it says on
http://www.torn.com/personalstats.php

If that changes by the time someone reads this bug report, here's a proof:

oops, just made a report myself on this too. Didn't see this one first.

Can add me to this bug too

Quoting from my report:
By bogie [148747]
My 'time spent in jail' on personal stats has gone into the negatives...

Done nothing out of the ordinary, I bust frequently, get jailed from that only as I don't do crimes resulting in jail, I get busted/bailed out but more often use an LBC to get myself out quickly to rebust the person I failed on.

I'd have thought this would be something that could only ever increase but according to the personal stat graphs too it's taken a sharp drop recently... (Compared to new players with 0s spent in jail they are 'green' on the personal stat text implying that they spent more time in jail with 0 seconds...)

Seems a tad odd... Any ideas? Or have I missed something here...

I think I'm about ready to give up with these stats. Dealt with this a year ago and it seems to have come back. I may just have to completely remove both.

@bogie: It happened to me (a year or so ago) because I would bail myself out at the exact same second I got busted/bailed by someone else.

@chedburn: nooooooooooooooo I love these timers! Can't you just lock tornberry or someone in the basement until they come up with a fix? please?

Is it really that bad?

That would be a good idea!

Sounds like a plan!

Sheesh, Im sure we can think of better things for Tornberry to focus on.
Besides, you're already locked up in the basement, no room for tornberry down there!

Do you have any idea what exact instances cause the time to drop? I assumed it was double busting but I can't find any records of those.

Try looking at bailing perhaps? Self bailing in particular either through an LBC or standard bail from the common law education perk. Lawyer business cards being used at the same time to being busted/bailed? Or being bailed at the same time as one of the above?

99% of the times I end up out of jail is because I've used my lawyer business card to bail myself out (waiting to be busted is far too tedious even in this current system where the jail always seems empty).

Sadly all I can really do is speculate though as it's not something I've ever noticed instantly as it happens, only afterwards when curiously looking at personal stats :/

I guess this system just isn't going to work. And there's no way I can improve it more for 100% reliability. Once the jail is fixed I think it will be much less of a problem, perhaps I'll revisit then. My guess is that removing from jail twice in exactly the same instance causes it, but we're unable to put the data in to a transaction or speed it up any more.

We might have to remove the time in hospital / time in jail as they're probably more effort than they're worth.
