Get users to create passwords on their accounts, because there used to be a feature that sent you an e-mail whenever you logged your stats, but it was removed due to the fact anybody can enter the account.
NGLogs used to have passwords a long time ago, but it became a real hassle to manage user accounts when people forgot passwords or had issues with them. Casualty (the original programmer) felt that since the NGLogs site was just for stat viewing, it didn't really matter if you had a password or not. If someone wanted to log the stats for someone else, it would do no harm.
As for e-mail notifications - if you think about it, it's kind of redundant - if you are logging your stats, you already did it, so why do you need an e-mail telling you just did? And if someone else logged your stats, there's nothing you can do about it. It's just stats, plain and simple.
So, no, there won't be passwords and the e-mail will most likely be removed in the next version.

Hopefully this is the right place to put this, but I just logged my stats a few minutes ago, and noticed that I'm listed in the Medal Ranks section at #1718 even though I have 107,210 points (I think I was at #11 yesterday when I logged). Maybe that's due to the points I got since the last update?I just had a look in "My Medal History" and it tells me I have 1 medal and 22 points. Strangely enough, the amount of Games I earned medals from has gone up from 160 to 162. So, there really seems to be an error somewhere.
Those are my last logs:
Log Date - Games - Medals - Points
02/17/12 - 162 - 1 - 22
02/16/12 - 160 - 1 - 22
02/14/12 - 154 - 1107 - 20935
On 14th February everything was all right, on the 16th something happened (or maybe on the 15th, but I haven't logged on that day).
The stat program reads the medals from the Newgrounds stat screens for each user. I know for a fact that Tom and crew are sorting out some issues with medal counts, points and reporting. I will keep an eye on it, but for now we need to be a bit patient as they work out reporting kinks on their end. Once the medal stat pages on Newgrounds works correctly ALL THE TIME then I will verify the code here to make sure all the right values come across.

I'm not freaking out over it or anything, just wanted to bring it to those in charge's attention if its a glitch that others have experienced as well.
There are a few things here to consider: (1) see the note above about NG Medal reporting. That can mess things up. (2) Not all users who play medal games log their stats here (it's voluntary by user) so you are only being ranked against those users who log stats, and (3) if someone who has played a lot of medal games had never logged stats before and now just started, that new number can throw off the list because they weren't on the rankings yesterday.
However, as before, I will keep an eye on things, and once Newgrounds settles in with correct data, I will verify that the NGLogs site is as accurate as possible.
Thank you all for the feedback!
