Having a graph generated from your last logs would be neat!

1. For this, of course, be careful to handle situations correctly where someone deposits on one day, then logs, and then logs again on the next day before depositing - he didn't miss one, then, even though a day has passed. :)

I like this idea too. And maybe a 'comment box' of some form that you can enter the desired stats you want and the date you want them by. It will be saved and accessed on the main screen (if the user activates it). It might also show the needed stat(s) per day to reach that goal.

Example:
You have 1000 B/P points
You want to have 1,500 B/P points by the 19th April (in 5 days)
You will need to get 100 B/P points a day.

A thing that can tell you how many hours on AVERAGE you're on the site.

That could be hard though.

Dude, STFU.

How about a generator that gives you a preview of what your stats will be like in a given amount of time?

For example, let’s say I pick “1 month”, the generator would take my current rate of every stat and replicate the results for 30 days in the future. It would show me how many posts I’d have at my current rate, whether or not I’d levelled up and how many B/P points I’d have.

Exactly, if you'd have read the whole post, I also said it might be hard to do it.

I didn't say it'd be hard to do, I said it would be IMPOSSIBLE. "Hard" implies the opposite of that, namely that it is possible (if difficult).

Maybe you should stop talking about things you don't understand.

Ok, How about arranging the 'users' section in order of logs instead of the way it is now. So that the more dedicated users can find there name and times logged easier. At the moment it takes forever to see how many times I have logged my stats and I have to search through for ages just to find my name.

Or, If that isnt possible how about a little column in your profile that tells you how many times you have logged. Either way is great for me!

Thanks Casualty!

I found out why this happens... If you are in the top 100, your current rank will be divided by 10 to see if you moved up in the next 10 ranks. The problem is, I rounded the values with floor(). This way, if you are in the top 10, your rank will be seen as 0 and therefor always less.

I changed it to ceil(), I don't know if it'll work because I am SO lazy today, but it should.

On a similar note, how about a "negative" section to complement the achievements? Something along the lines of "You lost a B/P rank today! Blimey!" or so, and similar for other things. "One of your reviews was deleted today! Crap!", or "You forgot to deposit twice since your last login! Rats!"[1], and so on. ^^

That sounds like an excellent idea! I added it for several stats like your level, VP, ranks and reviews. I don't think others are either possible or needed, but tell me if you think so...

A long time ago, I did try to make such a feature. It failed miserably. I might try again some time, though.

That sounds like a really useless idea to me =P It's like another achievement page, but with more (and another way).

I don't really feel like adding it (especially now, it's warm as fuck and I'm tired) but if more people support this idea, it might become something...

It would actually be possible, but extremely stupid and straining. It would require a script to check the Newgrounds BBS page, analyze the data in some idiot way, and log the only users.

Then, every time you request the page, it would need to browse trough tons of data to find out on which hours you were online. Plus, the data would be extremely inaccurate for several reasons.

This makes it so stupid and hard it could be considered IMPOSSIBLE. And I asked for EASY ideas >:(

Hmm. I'm not sure I see how that would help, to be honest; the problem is that nglog thought I had moved up (to a better rank, that is) when in reality, I had moved down.

Using ceil still sounds right, but I'm still not sure whether there mustn't be some other glitch, too; after all, if you have something like this:

if(floor(oldrank / 10) > floor(newrank / 10)) { print "Hurray!" }

then you'd get the message at the wrong point (i.e., when moving from e.g. 10 to 9 instead of 11 to 10), but it still should work correctly when you move into the "wrong" direction.

Ah well - without seeing the code, I'm just taking wild guesses, of course. :)

Cool! ^_^ Might also be worth adding whistle levels for this, but that's about all I can think of right now.

Hmm, you mean the list of logged-in users on the BBS pages? I always thought that only counted users browsing the BBS, not users currently active on NG in general...

Actually, the code you wrote is quite accurate =P

Seriously, I just found out what the problem was... and it's a pretty stupid one, too!

Without all the floor and other stuff, the code is (was):

if(rankNow > rankBefore){ print "Ahoy!" }

The glitch is extremely obvious and idiot: the condition is that the current rank must be greater than the current one, which is not what we want! We want to go UP in the rankings XD

I just fixed that, I don't know why I made that error...

Cool! ^_^ Might also be worth adding whistle levels for this, but that's about all I can think of right now.

Good idea, though it requires me to write out all the whistle levels on the script. As I am a lazy bastard, I will do this a bit later =P

Sh*t just happens. :P Unit testing probably would've caught it, though. ;)

Yeah... shouldn't be very urgent, anyway, though. How often do users lose whistle levels, anyway?

Yeah, but that could still refer to the BBS.

I would have always imagined that that referred to users on the BBS, not the whole site. It would be worth it to PM liljim and find out though, this could be a cool feature for NG Log.

Mostly it's just new users getting a garbage whistle because they didn't know how to correctly flag reviews...

Found a (small) bug today

You passed 7000 Blams. Impressive!
You entered the top 200 in B/P Points. Outstanding!

I am in the top 300, not 200... strange...

And a statistical change meant I lost 4 Exp, what does it mean?

Two ideas.

1. A simple spell check on the post page, to check before you post. Could help cut down the spam.

2. A better search engine, which trys to find threads with both words entered before searching each word seperately. eg. you search animie club, will come up with hundreds of other threads with the word 'club' rather than both animie, and club.

If you use firefox you can turn on the spell checker(not sure if its already there or if you need an add-on though). I have a spell checker for my posts.

2. A better search engine, which trys to find threads with both words entered before searching each word seperately. eg. you search animie club, will come up with hundreds of other threads with the word 'club' rather than both animie, and club.

Also, are you sure you are not suggesting things for Ng log and not just for newgrounds? cause there is another thread for that.

Too straining for the database. What you say means the script would have to browse trough ALL of the records in the stat table (currently 17,500+) every time the page is requested!

Impossible, as I am using an "official" Total of stats. I believe is was established with the 10,000+ Pentalist.

I do could make up a new type of special total stat though... I'll think about it.

And also can we have graphs of how we improved stat wise graphs make anything more serious and interesting

I might work on that today. I have tried it before and failed miserably, but I feel like trying again...

It says you lost 4 Experience RANKS. Pretty obvious: you went down 4 places in the experience rankings...

Great great idea.

I actually use the users page if I forget if I deposited that day to open my userpage without having to log in, but since gfoxcook is #127 and gfoxclock and gfox are #304 and 305, I have to do some major scrolling.

But I've logged my data 140/138/138 times, so if there was either an option to sort by times logged or a separate user list that ranks us by times logged in descending order, I'd be set for getting to those links a lot easier and faster.

Or, If that isnt possible how about a little column in your profile that tells you how many times you have logged. Either way is great for me!

I don't care so much about the number of times I've logged, but now we've got the number in our userpages, so I guess you got what you wanted!

Thanks Casualty!

Indeed. But hey, Casualty, can you take his original idea and come up with maybe a second user list (linked to from the main user list, perhaps?) that sorts by most-logged on downwards? Pllleeeeease? #;-}>


gfox // wi/ht?#9 // 2x10k PentaList (final update: 3/15/2008) // Bahamut's List!
a long, long time ago: 60000 b/p (#2) // 36000 blams (#3) // 24000 saves (#1)

I don't know if this has been asked before, but how about an option to export all the results as a .csv file? I'd be curious to look at a histogram on my daily BPs for shits and giggles.
