There is a new replacement for the PlayersOnline page being test under InGame->SRV ( http://game.other-li...blic/server.php ) that shows some additional information and auto updates everything above the graphs every 5 seconds, while doing it more efficiently and allowing adding more thing easier in the future.

This update is compliments of several changes including the work done for IM's to get real-time data.

Question: Should I be willing to show Player CL min:avg:max info that the IM's see or are people concerned that can leak their CL info in an unwanted fashion (the info leak isif min or max changes when you login or someone is tracking very carefully).

IMs are supposed to be trust worthy so having access to such info should not be an issue.

For myself, it does not matter if anyone knows my CL.   However, the only members who's CL will be known is probably the #1 ranked and the lowest rank players :P

That's why the IM's currently can see the info. The Question is about whether all players should see it.

I don't think it would be an issue but there are players that would want to keep their CL secret for their reasons.

I like my privacy, so hiding the info would be fine with me.

CL should always stay hidden. I dont care if IM's can see the info to better their invasions, but to the general public, definitely not

Good work L

Goodjob!

I love it being auto-updated so we don't have to refresh the page everytime just like InGame page.

I'd actually want to see player info not just ranks.

But people are too scared of other people finding out their stats. :P

I don't mind my CL being shown but then I never PK. I respect the wishes of those who do and wish to remain mysterious.

Does anyone have any requests for short pieces of information that would be good to add to this page?

Not now but possibly with future features

Could we list online players by Guild?

I'd rather make that a separate page or a page for each logged in guild. But, I was thinking if there was a page per guild, then maybe list out the Guilds that currently have at least one player logged in so you could link to it.

Most of the information there is available now in JSON format for those of you that are technically minded and want to use the information for other things. Will be much easier then trying to scrape data from the SRV page.

http://game.other-li...ver_summary.php

Permission is granted to use this data for other OL related pages. I ask to be nice and not hit it more often then once a second, feel free to go slower since that actually is faster then most people need. If this system gets overloaded, the worst you'll due it slow down serving the real-time data and can't slow down the game unless its a DDOS type speed.

That could be interesting to play around with.

Is there any other data you've released in that format?

Maybe in the future. The WebAccess system is design to easily produce & use JSON format easily. I also try to have the names be meaningful. A lot of the newer WebAccess pages I've been creating for players and IM's get the information they display in JSON format and simply have to create the page using that information.

Since the new SRV page has been running for a while with it's auto-refresh ...

Do we want to use it as a replacement for PlayersOnline? Or do we want to keep that as a non-refreshing version?
