Hey folks, just a few words.
First of all, there is a minor mistake in the stats for SotW 131
. I listed it as a tie despite the vote difference because Relic called the contest a draw within the thread. What I did not
recognize is that there was actually a tiebreaker process in place at the time that would make DFW the sole winner of that contest. This will be reflected in the next update. (Some ranks will be shifted around as a result of DFW's earning a full win instead of a half win, so don't be shocked.) If you find any other discrepancies in the archives or leaderboards, please let me know.
On a less technical note, I plan to create a condensed version of both pages--an archives page listing only the last fifteen contests and leaderboards that cut off at the tenth place or so while purging the "details" section. These condensed versions will be provided in parallel with the full pages (i.e. I would still be able to learn I'm #81 on the participation list if I want). This change will open the door to additional categories we haven't seen yet. Are there any leaderboard categories you'd like to see that are not currently available?
I was thinking a "most persistent" would be good--this would favor people who entered the contest the most times but are still looking for their first win. Or how about a highest average vote total category? (I suspect PrinceMSC would get that one.) Longest gap between entries? (That one might go to Nick.) Anyway, there's a world of possibilities. I'd love
to hear your ideas if you have 'em.
Also in the news, Sheik recently passed Dawnlight for most votes and wins all-time, but the numbers are very close. It's awesome that the two of them are still active contributors. Keep it up.
