Yeah, it's as you say: nice and easy. More ideas like this, please! =D

Sorry, Just after I posted I went on the site and saw it. It was just a little hard to spot when looking at that section. Is it possible for you to make it either Bold or outside of the brackets?

Hmmm, I just rephrased the sentence, but I think it's clear enough as it is...

Good point my friend. I am also one of those people who never finishes what I start. I dont blame you for not finishing this idea. I can understand why you didnt bother.

Thanks dude! Not finishing what you start is one of my greatest qualities! *COUGHCOUGHCOUGH* I wish I finished more of the things I started... Are you lucky I finished NG Log =P

This is really no big deal for me but maybe for other users who are very lazy...

Ok if you know for when you log in it says "Remember" well for some reason it never remembers for me? Oh and this one time it was really funny. I know Casualty did this on purpose but once Casualty's name popped up in the word box to write your name to log in.. It made me lol a lot. Anyways i just wanted to let you know if you didn't already Casualty.

More ideas you say! Ok well I have one sort of good one. Is it possible for you to add onto the achievements area or make a new achievements area that tells you if you have moved up a few spots on the Rankings list? I know it would absolutely huge and you would have atleat like 20 new achievement everytime you logged on but I think it would be cool to have a section like that. At the moment I have to look through all the the ranking sheets to see how I am going and if I have passed anyone I know.

HEY! That brought up an even better idea.

Is it possible to have a section where you can type in your friends names and it will do calculations on things like:

Your b/p points today:
Their b/p points today:

You have made (16) more points than (Alias) today!

Or something like that! You could of course add onto that etc.

I am not sure if that is a really good idea or not. Tell me what you think!

You should try to log in with any name without checking Remember, and then do it with remember and your name.

Also, RupeeClock warned me about the system not working. It was obvious it wouldn't work, because I accidentally set the cookie validity period to one hour. It's changed now, and it'll last until 11 years after your login =P To delete it, just log in without remember checked...

At the moment I have to look through all the the ranking sheets to see how I am going and if I have passed anyone I know.

Actually I'd have to make a system which goes kinda like this:

-If you're in the top 1,000,000: Only when you move up x*10,000 places.
-If you're in the top 10,000: Only when you move up x*1,000 places.
-If you're in the top 1,000: Only when you move up x*100 places.
-If you're in the top 100: Only when you move up x*10 places.

So that you wouldn't get achievement messages every day if you're a bit low in ranking =P

Buuut I don't have time for that today, neither do I have tomorrow. So it'll probably be Thursday, or maybe Saturday. But probably Thursday!

HEY! That brought up an even better idea.

Hmmmm... I dunno, but that'd be a bit too much, it's just another page. Plus, to be precise, you and your friend would have to log stats every day... I dunno man, I just don't think it's that great...

Thats heaps better. Thanks!

No problem dude!

Really! ME TOO! I am quite surprised you did finish NG log and you still update it. Kudos to you!

Thanks man!

Since the username lockdown happened near the start of the month, there's really no more need for that 'click here if you've changed your username' button. Getting rid of that would be convenient.

If they didn't log their stats since March first, they are not worthy using NG Log >:C

Also, the database is down, and I don't know for how long. I'll start working on the "rank achievements" as soon as it's back up (which should be very soon).

Casualty is god

That is a hell of an addition to the site. Overall I like the quotes on the top. I saw somewhere a while back you posted something about a downloadable program that could let you log on NGLOG from your desktop. I was just wondering if you scraped or if you didn't what the timeframe was for it coming out.

I already asked him that same question on the previous page.

I'm kinda leaving it how it is. I mean, what's the use... Going to the site isn't THAT much more than pressing some button on your system tray... But thanks for asking!

There is your answer.

Two suggestions:

On the index page (http://nglog.denvish.net/index.php), there's a line that says "You are logged is as $username." with a "Get Stats" button underneath; the username should be a link to the person's profile page.

Also, how about a "Least deposits missed" and "most deposits missed" ranking? :) I know it wouldn't always be exact, especially for older users, but it'd still be fun.

Sorry about that repeat question. I haven't been very active in the Wi/Ht forum lately so I didn't really read this whole thread. The only reason I even knew about that program was becuase you mentioned it in the Level Up Lounge and I saw it while I was writing that massive congrats list.

I noticed that on the NG log site just before. I cant download it thought because I am at school. THIS IS TORTURE!

Thanks for making a great program Casualty even though I havent seen it yet! :-)

Casualty that was a good program. You have some serious skill. One problem though. Every once in a while it pops up with an error message that says "this project has been discontinued and is now locked" or something like that. After that I hit ok or whatever, the program closes, and I reopen it and it is working fine. Any ideas? And is the NGLOG site down right now becuase I can't seem to log in.

Good idea, I made the username a link to the browse page, and added a profile link.

Also, how about a "Least deposits missed" and "most deposits missed" ranking? :) I know it wouldn't always be exact, especially for older users, but it'd still be fun.

That's a great idea! But I'm having problems with that right now, and I don't know why. I'll try again this weekend, when I have more time.

The problem is, I use an approval file on the NG Log server to secure the program. So if the NG Log server is down, the program can't read the file and it thinks the access has been locked...

As I said to DarkSoldier, the program won't start if NG Log is down too. Thanks for the comments!

Well, if you combined the portal guard program with some thing that could track the users stats, that would be cool. but you'd have to balance it with nglog.

Or you could make a simple stat calculator for all stats, making it easier for users to make quick calculations etc

that all probably sounds like ramblings but I'll get back to you if I think of anything really good

I'd prefer to keep both project separated. I mean, I don't want a program with 10,000 features running at once and raping your computer, you know.

I don't know why NG Log was down, and yeah, you can only START the program while NG Log is fine. But that's not too bad, is it. Well, you're going to have to live with it.

Here's a picture of it.

That does the same thing to me occasionally when I first open it. Just open it up again and it should be fine. It works for me anyway.

IDEA

I am not sure if this would be a hassel for you or not.

With the NG portal guard, Is it possible for you to change it so that it has a link to the NG portal somewhere?

Because the whole purpose of it is to check up to see if there are any new submissions when you are not on NG itself. If there is a new submission you have to open up expoler or firefox (I love firefox) and then type in www.newgrounds.com/portal. It would be so much easier if there was a link to either the portal or even better the submissions page. Is this possible?

Tell me what you think!
