I did a very rudimental update, you can see it here.

It's a very basic update, just a table, no congrats on Level ups (after 2 years??? The congrats-list would be longer than the actual xp-list...), no new users added (if you see a gap in the rankings, that's possibly due to a missing user), no deposit rate, no level pics...

As always, users with a Exp Rank of 0 are striked out, they have a rank of -1 in my list. Users that got their account deleted or got a name change have a rank of 0 in my list and can be found at the end of the table.

Now for the most interesting stat: The exp change: If you have a change of 4500 it is very likely that you haven't missed a deposit since the last update. Users with a change of 4510 or even 4520 can be sure that they haven't missed a single deposit since the last update. Not many among us who accomplished this (for example, Pimp didn't make it... :P )

Also, the list is sortable. Meaning you can click on any of the column names to get the list sorted by that column. But since it's a largle table it does take some time and it may show strange results while sorting. So just be patient.
If you want to get it ordered by Ranking again just reload the page.

If people here like this update I might be able to update it every other month or so (I'm not a clockwork like Murray who was almost always on time during those 5 years he did the updates...), and I might put in some more eyecandy to make the list more viewable (meaning, I most likely just steal the layout from Murrays update page ;) ).

If you see any errors, please let me know. I'm too tired to check the list again...

EDIT: If the admins think it's a bad idea to run those updates due to the server strain it may cause, please let me know and I'll just stop.

That is neato. I don't mind if it's the bare essentials here but it's still nice to see.

I'm still flawless as usual. I haven't even missed a single deposit since 2008. It's scary how I can still keep this up after all this time. What I really like about this list is how the others below me are doing. I was curious how those up to the top 150 were doing while I'm there getting myself near to the top 80.

By all means steal whatever you want from my updates. I'm not going to accuse of others but some have adapted to the layouts that I used (which was originally taken from gfox) and took their own spin so I'm all for it. Would be great to see the EXP updates again in some form.

Oh man, its been so long! Unfortunately, I wasn't one of those with 4500 experience points, though I did achieve around 4300. Also a whopping 161 ranks passed since the last update! I would obviously love to see more of these updates if possible. Thanks so much for attempting to bring this thread back, Haggard!

It was late at night when I did this, heh. It will be no problem to add more to it, since I can do everything in a database. I just need to pull the stats from NG (obviously).

I missed quite some deposits during this time. Since I missed one deposit when I had no access to the internet during a vacation my motivation to start a new streak of "no missed deposits for x years" wasn't very high, heh.

That's good to know. I have to see how much I can automate the process. It would be ideal if I just had to click a button, wait a bit and then just upload the files.
When I think about it, it isn't really that hard to include a table in a webpage, thanks to php.

Also, I don't think it will cause too much strain for the servers, since I only access the source code of the stat page, not the page itself (means, I don't load any huge images from those pages). But of course, I have to access ~3000+ pages during a relatively long time span of about 40 minutes.
So, @BrenTheMan (and possibly @liljim as well), what do you think? Would it be okay to run a program that accesses this data every few months or is it too much?
I ran the program yesterday a few times (should've tested it better...) at around 11pm to midnight GMT+1. Any noticeable effects on your side?

Wouldn't have thought it'd be a concern, depending on how you're doing it. Email me the scripts and I'll take a look. liljim@

I use C#'s WebClient class: WebClient.DownloadString. In a nutshell: It downloads the whole source code. Much like as if I would do a right click -> save as on an html link.

As long as you're not slamming us with requests, that should be fine.

Nope.

I think citricsquid had to shut down his little tools because they caused too much of a server load. So I figured it's better to be safe than sorry. :)

Well let's not let that happen again. You know you can always rely on me to get the job done. You just have to ask.

Response to Top 2,000 Exp Users 2015-03-07 15:29:33


Huh? I have no idea how I lost at least 10 days worth of deposits.

I must be getting old.

Thanks for the update!
