New WCR site

Post  Traperac on Tue Mar 04, 2014 1:51 pm

As you might know, I'm currently working on a new website for WCR.
I tried to add as much new features as possible, but you might have some ideas to share in mind I haven't thought of. This is the purpose of this topic : let me know what kind of feature you would like to see on new site. It can be functional (rankings, information about zones, etc...) or display (design, video player, etc...) feature.

Ideas so far :
-embed youtube videos
-lost positions in news
-info button on scores (or tooltip maybe)
-Country page with National Records and owners.
-Display numbers and nicknames in game's font
-Top5 for each zone in a player profile
-Gamercard
-10 stars should be displayed with regular stars

It's planned to be done in a second time. Shouldn't be so hard to do, but I would need to work javascript a bit so that when you click on video, embed player opens with the selected vid.

Since the new overall ranking was added i thought about a feature so everyone can see if he lost AP. In the news i announce the AP someone lowered but not the ones which lost AP due to the new score. If u get overtaken on a zone u loose a position which is equal to loose 0,03 AP (0,033333...). A solution would be to just show a table with the number -0,03 in the overall chart.

Now the problem is if its shown after each update, and someone checks back the rankings after for example 3 updates, so he won't see who lost or if he lost AP. Or if he knows he lost AP he will maybe wonder where. So a solution would be maybe to show the AP lost for a week or last 30 days, etc. . But then it would just show u lost 0,10 AP, that means u lost 3 positions and u would still wonder where. It could also show u lost AP in someones profile but it would be nice if u could check the overall ranking after each update and then u would imediately see who lost AP for that update.

I would like to have the easiest and most simple solution for this, maybe someone has a idea.

Could be done 2 different ways :
1 - Using extra field
In scores table, I could add a previous_rank field to store rank at the beginning of month (and mid-month if we update this every 2 weeks, but I think it should rather be monthly).
In players table, I could add some fields to store positions and score for each ranking.

2- Using a new table
I could add one or more table to store positions gain/loss in charts/rankings with the date.

The 2nd solution would be the best I think, since it would be possible to keep track of every gain/loss in charts and rankings (and not only monthly, but for each update).
This would also allow really cool new features, such as showing a player loss and gain day by day, or even a graph showing player's evolution in rankings, etc...

Another idea:

Thought about info for some scores.....Just a idea, maybe can be done different. There could be a row in the charts and if there is something to tell about a record, there would be a info button. If u press that button or scroll over it, a box appears and there it could tell how for example the 206mil score on 14 from crashfreak looked like. Small text like it was a early glitch and damage counter jumped to 14mil. Also could be used to tell what strat was used for the ones without a video, etc.

Others ideas I've been thinking of but won't be done in a first place (noting them here for further dev) :
-Country page with National Records and owners.
-Display numbers and nicknames in game's font
-Top5 for each zone in a player profile
-Gamercard

Some design improvement which could be done, cause for my taste the charts look to colorful at the moment. If someone has 10 stars the stars are not only yellow, they are golden or what it is. I would like to see them just in the same yellow like the other stars, not highlighted in any way.

Another features which would be nice to see:

It would be nice to have some statistics for the top-25s like i had them in that WCR text file.


Main stats for all top-25s (just the top-25 scores):
-kind of proofs (how many vid-, pic-, xbl- and unproven score)
-version used (how often xbox,gc or ps2 was used)
-podium ranks, tops appearance (overview who has most top3, top10, etc)
-countries (simple country appearance listing)
-cars used (how often cars were used, order from most to less used)
-most video proofs



For best vids sections:
-total
-version used
-players appearance
-would be nice if u could sort each list per date (maybe also biggest scores)



And as this site is kinda used for a WR overview
http://www.crashmoderankings.com/zones/
i would maybe like to see there also dates added (so that u could also sort it per date).
+ total, version used, players appearance, countries, cars

Had the idea for another 2 nice features:

The 1st would be for the AP rankings. For each position/player it shows how mayn spots r needed to climb 1 place.
For example Infinity A.B have a AP of 9,900. And the position above him, in thise case Drew22werD has a AP of 8,067. So Infinity needs another 1,833 AP "points" to pass Drew. 1 spot on a top-25 is worth 0,03 AP points. So Infinity would need to gain another 61 spots (1,833 : 0,03) to pass Drew on the AP rankings.



The other idea is a "wayback" machine. U could just go back to any date and see how the rankings looked like on that date.
For example you go back to 1st January 2009 and then u can watch the whole website how it looked like (Zones, Rankings, Vids).
