And it's open!
Automated TC Stats Site
• Division One
• Division Two
• Team Leaderboard
• Category Standings
First of all, thanks to sks72 and 1337LutZ for their work on this. It's been a fair bit of work for the past few months, and not always easy to get us all online at the same time. And you'll all know how easy it is to do things around here with me.
Now, on to the changes we made for phase two:
• Hovering over a member's name will now show their hardware and category (on the team pages), or their hardware and team name (on the cat pages):
• Clicking on a team name (on the team pages or the leaderboard) will take you to the OP of the team thread on OCN.
• Graphs have been added for each team.
• Temporary members are bold on all pages, and inactive (but not yet replaced) members are in italics.
• Colour scheme has been changed to match OCN.
• Headers and titles are now outside of the stats box, with a drop shadow to emphasise them.
• Links have been changed to a tab bar, with curves.
• OCN logo in the top left, which links to the OCN homepage.
• The update timer has been moved to the top right, and now counts down to the next update, rather than mentioning when the previous update occured.
• Updates are still done every six hours (starting from 6am BST).
• Graph links added next to each team's name.
• Team boxes now resize to fit the longest name (unlike before, where the edge of the box overlapped them).
• "Points from next" column added.
• Graphs next to the points for each team. In colour.
• Division total are above each leaderboard.
• There is also a graph for each division for teams' overall points.
• "Team name" column has been expanded so the longer teams don't take up two rows.
Category Rankings page
• By default, the first member in each category is in the leading team (if Still in Beta
are in first, then their members will be head of each category).
• By clicking the Category header (i7, i7-2, etc), you can sort by rank (Note:
the categories are linked, so if you sort by i7, and the first member is from Laundromatic
, then all other categories will be lead by Laundromatic
• You can sort one category per division (you can rank by i7 for D1, and Fermi by D2), but no more than one in the same division.
• You can merge the two i7 categories together (and then sort by rank if you wish). This should give a better indication of how a team's i7 positions compare with the rest of the Division:
And a hell of a lot of bugs sorted out for the actual stats.
As for the future, we do have plans, mainly to do with having daily stats in the same way as we have on the GDocs stats now, and team pages on the stats site itself. Not gonna be any time soon though; we still have a fair few things to sort with the backend... so many Folders and features is making it awkward now. Plus, we need sks to get some free time, and that's not easy when you're busy trying to learn things.
The GDocs stats will continue, since we need the daily points to be shown when there are issues with points. And that means you'll still get me posting updates in the General Discussion thread once in a while.
So, for now, enjoy the site, and keep an eye out for me mentioning we're working on phase three. Again, a HUGE thanks to both sks and LutZ for making this possible.
