Post by: Team Matassa on January 10, 2015, 22:30:08

That seemed almost too easy.  All this time I thought there was an elaborate secret ceremony with a sacrifice to a thorn bush and a bath in the swamp.

Done.  The speed of the requests are directly proportional to how far down it bumps me from the position I'm on in the list.  So long as you are below me, It'll get done quickly.  ;D ;)

Just noticed that the Leaderboard is no longer loading, it goes straight to the forums.

I have the same problem.

Not sure why, but the main http://canadascapitalcachers.ca webpage is now redirecting to the forums.
However, you can still look at the Leaderboard by pointing straight to its webpage: w w w.mikron.ca/cccstats/

Now that there is no longer a dedicated webpage for the CCC, maybe it would be good to add the CCC Leaderboard link http://canadascapitalcachers.ca/cccstats/ http://w w w.mikron.ca/cccstats/ to a sticky post at the top of the "Newbies to CCC and geocaching" category?

The CCC "main page" was not being maintained and was essentially useless.  I added a simple redirect to send all the traffic to the forums, but had forgotten about the old link to the leaderboard. Since the leaderboard was rarely advertised, I just assumed anyone who cared to check it was using a local bookmark in their browsers.

I've added a bare-bones splash screen on the main page, with a few simple links.

Thank you kirok  :)
The new main page looks sleek, and it contains as much useful information as there ever was on the old page.

Thx for adding me to the leaderboard.
I guess in my case it's more like a trailerboard. :(

For some reason my total on the leaderboard is lower than what my profile shows (even accounting for the one day lag/upload time). The total is consistent with the linked page that comes up when you click on the # of finds in the chart, but that page shows 10 less than my current total.

I think maybe it is not accounting for 10 lab caches that I found during the Moncton Mega - is that possible?

That is correct.    Some statistics pages (including their own) cannot count lab caches, as they are not "real" caches.  If / when Groundspeak ever imodifies the lab caches, they'll get picked up by the script. This is because lab caches do not have Difficulty or Terrain ratings, so they can't count them in those stats.  The search screen that my script (any many others out there) uses to gather stats, has a D/T column in it, so the lab caches do not show up.  While I could, with much work, modify my scripts to get the "real" number, it would require one of:

a)  Caching my password into a local cookie and then fetch the data as an authenticated (logged-in) user from each cacher's actual profile screen.  This is do-able but it violates the Groundspeak usage policy, and I don't want to get my account revoked over this. 

OR

b) Pay to have an API license and query the database directly like other external software packages do (GSAK for example).   No thanks.

Technically even doing it the way I am doing now may violate the usage policy, as I am putting a (small) load on their servers when I fetch the data.  This is why I have limited the look-ups to once a day, only in the wee hours of the morning, and have added a one second sleep interval between data fetches for each cacher name.  This is why it takes a little less than 3 minutes to update the database every night, but I'm trying to be a good Groundspeak citizen.  ;D

Hey Kirok, mind adding me as well? I'd like to see myself on it.

Guess when I dropped the "4" in my nickname, I got dropped off the leaderboard.  I dropped because when I signed logs it looked like it was "CanTha 14" instead of "CanThai4"

Would it be possible to get me up on the leaderboard again.  Thank you.

Now that I've teamed up with a real g(e)o-getter, I was hoping to be added to the leader board. Not expecting to hit the heights, but interested in being on it. Thanks!

Update your bookmark folks.  The CCC Leader-board has been migrated over to the main domain site instead of mine.  You can find it here now: http://canadascapitalcachers.ca/cccstats/ (http://www.canadascapitalcachers.ca/cccstats/)

Please add me to the leader board.  Albeit a long way down from some pretty impressive numbers but would like to pretend we are among the leaders.
Thanks.

There seems to be something odd happening with the CCC leaderboard today - I was credited with 10 finds yesterday when I had just 2, and my total finds number is slightly off, as well as my trackables total.  Has anyone else noticed any glitches?
Title: Re: CCC Leaderboard
Post by: j.r.dalelahey on July 02, 2018, 13:21:03
I notice that my totals are off as well. It shows as last updated on 30 June, but my numbers are not accurate for that date.  I'm not sure who maintains this, but I am willing to help if it is required, let me know.  Might need a bit of training though!  Happy caching all.

It appears to be stuck. I wonder if the token expired?

Post by: kirok on July 14, 2018, 08:45:34
Sorry folks, but the leader board is busted for the time being.   GC.com updated their site security and certificates, and now no longer support the type of site scraping the scripts were using.  Until our hosting provider updates the software on the servers we're on, or we move to a new provider, the leader board will be inaccurate / busted.
