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

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/
