Data is being collected right now, but don't count on the ratings staying as is. Discussion is going on right now on
how to most usefully generate ratings. I'm going to be on vacation next week, so no changes are immediate. Right now
most of the time related checks are off, so there may be dups getting collected. Once a rating formula is decided on,
the data will be reprocessed, and ratings will be regenerated.
If you'd like to participate in the discussion, see
on the Google Group.

Ratings are being processed
Ratings are being processed. The current process is: +1 for killshot, +5 for verified kill,
capped at a max of +1 for killing someone in your monarchy, +0 for someone with the same patron. -5 for suicides.
The processor is running in the debugger, so if it runs into an error, it will stop at a breakpoint.
while i'm at work i won't be monitoring it, so if submissions start piling up, thats why.
PKHunter 188.8.131.52 Available!|
| Posted on 2007-02-03 17:40:00 by Johnus of Grey Death|
PKHunter 184.108.40.206 is available.
Ratings are not being calculated yet. I need more data to be submitted before i start doing that.
So on player detail pages, you will see "unprocessed" data on the player detail pages. Once i start processing ratings, then that data will go away.
Since no ratings are being processed, the number of kills, deaths, etc will not increase, but submitted data is being tracked.
Since everyone has a rating of 0, the top 10's will be pretty much random for probably a week or so until i start processing ratings.
For the discussion of how ratings will be be calculated, see this post on the google group.
If you have any issues, post them there.
Planned Rating Changes|

Plugin is almost ready, only backend changes left!
The plug-in itself is basicly ready, all i have left is back end/rating changes left to do. Here's what i'm planning right now.
I'm thinking of doing something like:
- 0 points - killing someone more than 1 time in 60 minutes (you will never get any points for killing someone repeatedly)
- 0 points - killing someone with the same patron (you will never get any points for killing someone who has the same patron)
- +1 point- killshot (so aside from the above cases, you'll always get
at least 1 point)
- 1 point max- killing someone within the same monarchy. (no matter what, you'll never get more than 1 point for killing someone within
your monarchy, but subject to the 0's above!)
- +5 points for looting rights (victim has to leave a corpse, and someone
who witnesses needs to id that corpse (plugin does it automatically. but if the victim doesn't leave a corpse, nobody gets these points)
[so if you're keeping track, looting rights+killshot gets you 6 points]
- +5 points for the first time you kill someone unique.
This one is still up in the air. It might have a level restriction, or be in a monarchy or have a patron or some other
thing to prevent gaming this part of the system.
[so if this is the first time you've ever killed someone, you could max out at 11 points]
- -2 points for suicides.
For more details, see this post on the google group.

PKHunter 2.0 for Decal 3 (Alpha 7) is on its way.
I have the .NET version of the plugin tracking kills and submitting updates to the website.
A public build is coming soon.
Keep watching here for more updates!
I'm working on it!|

Where the hell is my plugin?!
Decal 3 Alpha 4 is now publicly available, and i'm currently in the process of updating all of my plug-ins. Don't worry, its on my list!
I'm also planning on adding a lot of features that people have asked for:
keep in mind, those are only PLANNED features. I will probably also change how ratings are calculated or something, i haven't figured that out yet.
- "real" killer support (identifying corpses to see who the "real" killer was, not just the kill shot.
- monarchy support
- witness support - people who submit kills will be shown as witnesses
- location - where the kill actually took place
- levels at time of kill
- ability to anonymize yourself (if you download the plug-in and run it one time, you can "opt out" of the site). you will be shown as "Anonymous Coward 34" or something similar.
Why are the top tens empty?!|

Why are the top tens empty?!
Decal is still not publicly working/available for TD.
See this post on the AC Utilities VN boards for more
info: AC-TD Decal Update
Chances are, after that is updated, i will need to update the plug-in as well.
And chances are after that, I will move the contents of the current database to a "legacy" site, and introduce a new rating system.
Ratings being REBUILT with new rules|
| Posted on 2004-02-01 14:30:55 by Johnus of Grey Death|
|Ratings are being REBUILT from scratch.|
No kills (except duplicates) will be lost! The processor is working as fast as it can, but as of right now, it looked like the latest kills processed were new years eve 2002. That leaves a whole YEAR of kills left.
For more information, see this post on the boards: Ratings update thread.

|So I haven't updated anything since oh... MAY 10th! Crazy! I did a couple updates to the front page though. Since there aren't very many news updates frequently, i moved em to their own page!
Also! The front page now shows TODAY's top 10 along with the ALL TIME top 10. Today's top ten shows the top 10 for each server that have had some kind of "event" in the last 24 hours. Event is kill, death, or suicide.
Its just a little update, but hey!
Also, we've now crossed the 700,000 kill mark!
Thats a lot of kills!
Hopefully, I'll have some time to do some updates to the processor to actually implement the stuff listed below about 0 points for killing someone > 500 points below you...
