Hey Chribba, did you trip over the server powercord?

Thought I replied to this haha, but no, however someone screwed up and wiped my dns root zones when switching registrars so everything went offline due to dns problems.

Perhaps I should look into getting some redundancy on the as well.

Yes doing a rank for each year has been suggested quite a few times. I hope it will happen, I wonder how I will do in class of 2006? Probably ranked at the bottom behind all the Achuras.


I don't know how the backend works for eb, but could something like be done with a drop down or text box filter, where you could put in the number of months (or years) of age of characters that you want to include, and the list is reordered to filter out any characters older than the filter number? So you could see who was the highest rank of six month old characters and younger, or three year old and younger. If that required a calculation every time, that would be bad, but if you had the calculations done already and this was just removing some of the people, maybe it wouldn't be so resource intensive. Well, I guess you'd have to hold those new sorts in memory somewhere, which could be bad, too. Just an idea. Alternatively, you could just store say ranks for every two months of age up to about 18 months, and then maybe for each year after that, rather than allowing users to specify any amount and having to keep it for each user.

Is the site working? It has been very temperamental lately for me.

I just noticed a slight bug in the overall (global) rank calculation. There are 35 categories but the average is calculated by dividing by 30. So either the 5 certificate categories should be eliminated (lowering all averages by 166.67) or the divisor should be changed to 35 (lowering all averages by 14.3%.) Neither change would effect the global ranking, just make it a little less confusing for those trying to figure out how it is calculated.

Also, Viggen is about to go DOWN! Out with the old, in with the (relatively) new.

It has been very bumpy lately yes with reoccuring db corruptions which I am not able to pinpoint the cause fully for since it only happens to the main eb database and none of the others. I've tried various fixes and always hope it survives the night, lately it hasn't. Soon running out of options and only leaving the option to get a brand new server - so it is yet to see how it pans out (and oh yeah Sunday night/Monday's outage was due to the server not restarting properly and I had no way of physically get it back online until the morning).

Since certificates are not around any more they will get removed.

I find it odd that my standings show Spacelane Patrol 3 times with different values:

Looks like there's been a small bug introduced in the latest code change. I will look into it and adjust things.

Good catch, thanks!

I think its something that shows when you are missioning for a corp and thus your standings are changing rapidly (relatively speaking).

Actually it was for some reason not updating a row rather than adding a new row for said corp. It's global and aprox 1/3 of the table is duplicate entries. So there's been some cleaning done and more to come as well as need to review the code so it doesn't happen any more.

Sort of off topic but...

How does one upload a torrent to EVE-Files?

I'm trying to make the client available to some people having download issues.

I followed http://eve-files.com/torrent.dxd and uploaded a .torrent to my EVE-File account, and my seedbox is showing tracker.eve-files.com rejecting: Tracker: [Failure reason \"requested download is not authorized for use with this tracker\"]

Thanks.

Wondering if there is ever going to be a rankings system for Faction and NPC corp standings?

Probably not, depending on what exactly you're looking for, per corp or sorta more global. The average faction thing is there, but going down on ranking per NPC corp kinda may at the moment bit a bit over the top without bigger changes in the code and database.

But I can put it on the list and try look into things and see what may be possible.

Highest standing with a given corp or faction are going to be pretty meaningless - there will be people at 10.0 who just sit there forever.

There are currently 3 levels of standing that matter:

5.0 faction pre skills (for pos, will become irrelevant come summer)
6.66 corp post skills, around 6.06 at connections V, needed for tax free refining
8.0 corp post skills, between 7.51 and 7.81 at connections V, needed for jump clones

How many corps people have second or third with may be useful to some looking for characters to buy perhaps?

hey c, how's things?

I was about to ask about an update on a couple stagnant skillsheets, but after going back a couple pages I have a question about the ranks categories instead.

Is Amateratsu correct, that characters who have a category maxed are ranked among each other by global rank? (and the order of the top 10 in a category can change in the future if their global rank changes?)

I was surprised to learn that skill date isn't a factor in rank sorting, and if that's the case I'm not so concerned about an update, as it's pure vanity training.

But just in case it's something you'd want to know about, I have a couple characters who haven't updated for 2 million SP +.

Since there's no way of tracking skill date (unless I code to actually keep track of such things) I can't use that. And yes, if a pilot has the same as someone else, the global rank would sort them.

took another look--that means as I finish up gunnery: all on two characters, they will take somewhere between 5th and 7th place in the gunnery ranks Lol for quite a while now I stressed about the chronological order

Hey Chribba,

Just want to say Eveboard is awesome and thanks for creating it. I am getting an error when I click the alliance button:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e31'
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Query timeout expired
/stats-progress.asp, line 36

Just thought I'd give you a heads up.
