Threadgrounds!

I've been making lots of silly tools and websites recently, quite a few focused around Newgrounds. I've already built a Top Posters list for the bbs, I've also built something that let's you total all the posts between your accounts automatically.

Last week TheMaster suggested to me that there should be a place where users can find all the topics that they've ever created, being his bitch and work whore I did it. After working for a few days I've finally got all the information needed and the site working, it uses some fancy javascript and the basic Newgrounds layout.

What does it do?
Simply put: It lists all the threads ever created by a specific user, I'll use BlueFlameSkulls topics as an example. As you can see every thread he's ever posted is listed, after a few seconds the options should load at the side which allow you to narrow down the display criteria: You can select to only display threads in general, or any other forum, you can also select to only display locked or open threads.

I also went with another feature; emote tracking. It's quite fun seeing a users favourite emote and the frequency at which they use these emotes. On the Front Page of the site you can see BBS wide statistics on the emote usage, as I type this the most popular emote is (besides none) is the little "hmmm" face.

The homepage currently displays a few bits of information: A list of the total emotes used across the bbs for threads, the users who've posted the most threads - this ignores P-bot and ">deleted users - and also the latest threads that the site has tracked.

but why?
There have been so many times when I've thought; "Haha, I really want to see that thread that <user> made last year!" but all I can remember is thier username, the forum it was in or a 3 letter word that was in the title. So all I need to do now is go to their threadgrounds page and find it, simple! I've found some hilarious threads and some really embarassing ones. Even bananabreadmuffin used to be a shitty user :D

Known Bugs
Due to the way the BBS Handles people who have all their posts deleted - like psycho and chailatte - there are some incistencies: For example, if you had the first reply in a thread by psycho it will now show you as the thread starter, if you send me a PM I can fix this but there is no automatic way.

When I started gathering the stats I overlooked deleted users, so some threads (pre 2003) may show the first replier as the poster where the original thread starter is deleted, if you post any threads like this you can find I'll have them fixed, this mainly effects pre 04 mods.

Thanks!
Everyone wants some love, so thanks to TheMaster for the idea, Gagsy for extra ideas and suggestions to improve it, TheD-LucksEdition for the slogan thing and various other people for stuff.

So yeah, here is is: Threadgrounds!

I don't really know what else to say: It updates every 60 minutes and has a "cache" system so that page loads are as fast as possible. If you have any problems, suggestions or ideas feel free to post them here and I'll sort them out for you. Feel free to send me a PM etc.

You genius.
Holy shit though, last night I was thinking of how easy it would be to do something to calculate emoticon usage and statistics.

Hahahaha!!! Imagine that.

When David mentioned this the other day I was looking through your posts to see if you'd posted about it...

This is awesome. I've not made many topics, but there's probably some I forgot.

You must not understand the load this takes. It's running through almost 900,000 records on the first page load for a user, so the weight on my server is huge while you all get over how awesome it is. My server isn't that bad.

I think it was something else under the old design, the emotes changed recently.

And really.. It's the 1st most used mood. The default one doesn't really count.

I remember there being problems with stat crawlers back in the day adding server loads to NG.

Is that a problem nowadays or has the internet got big enough that it doesn't really matter?

Seriously I'm such a shitty programmer, my server load is up to 62 (That's 6200% more than it can handle) so it's probably going to explode in a minute.

If it goes offline, sorry :(

Suggestion:

Show only 5 or 10 threads on a profile, add a link to full list of threads on the bottom. Keep profile full of small info. Or you can be nifty and have a javascript button that shows and hides threads.

Also one more thing.

I've posted the most threads? Surely that is bollocks.

Wow, I've used about 50 emotes. Even if that's just after the redesign, it's not much.

I'm quite surprised that I've made nearly 100 threads, too.
