Good point, and that would be a lot of data requests if each time a page loaded it went and grabbed the stats from BOINCStats for any team members on that page.
Maybe a deal can be made where OCN's servers grab the data on a daily basis and the team rank references that, that way the amount of traffic to BOINCStats is reduced. Something for more informed people than me to look into.
