Also, should have mentioned this in the OP. Looking for feedback on the new profile page. The goal is an easy to understand page for new and experienced players alike. So if something comes off as too complicated or not initiative, let us know.
I would move everything that's in the left column and put it in between the name and the table. Primarily because I think the User Comment should be given more space. Or, you could just show the whole user comment, but make it so that you can toggle visibility by clicking the banner, just like in the other columns.

GR categories is coming on its own page with more details and more comprehensive charts. The profile page is just a high level look at things since there is already a lot on that page.

KW901 is not included. PPSC is included.
Gotcha!

Does PPSC have a weight-modifier?



I also just noticed that the new user search page now routes to an actual url! It's a super minor thing, but it's bothered me for years. Amazing work with all your many changes, folks! <3
PPSC does not have a weight modifier. Oh, also I guess I should have clarified that PPSC is not included in the Full Press/Classic category. It is included in all other categories though.

This one I can't do, we have some members (EMC, etc) who enjoy maxing out the comment size so displaying it takes a stupid amount of space. We did think about maxing it out at a reasonable size, but this way people can at least still make it as long and obnoxious as they want.

Thanks Jmo. Lasted about a week where I got to say I was once again #1 on both PlayDip and WebDip before these "recalculations" kicked in.

When were you last #1 in overall GR? Nikola’s been #1 for most of 2020, I thought you were #1 in one of the GR subcategories...

Overall - you mean the novelty non-FP games? I hear those are super neat.

There's a thing about the ranking in HoF where I believe it glitches out when you have less than 100 GR? For example, this is what it currently says for me;
You are ranked #25233 out of 25232 players with an overall GR of over 100.
Which is, well. Amusing but slightly problematic. I'm not sure if this also happens when you have less than 100 points, since I don't qualify for that, but chances are maybe?


The other suggestion is the one I've put in discord, which is to have the position rankings be in fraction format (like the points ranking would, for the former profile)
Position: 65,942
Changed into ↓
Position: 65,942/total number

This is also and older thing, and not quite sure if this is possible since I don't know if bot games are categorised differently or not - but maybe add a subcategory under the game stats to for bot games? Currently they count in the "all game stats", but don't show up in the subcategories below, which causes discrepancies between the stats where there's seemingly additional wins out of nowhere.

TheGhostMaker developed Ghost Ratings well before you were even a member here (2011 at the latest, you joined in 2017), it has historically been the “unofficial” rating system at webDip since its inception, and it is now integrated into the site thus becoming the “official” rating system of webDip. webDip prioritizes Overall Ghost Rating (tracked since 2011), that is the only Peak Ghost Rating that is tracked, all the other Categories are merely subsets of the Overall Ghost Rating. At the end of the day it doesn’t really matter what you think webDip should prioritize or what I think webDip should prioritize, when you speak of webDip, what matters is what webDip prioritizes.

I’m personally content just being the top classic press guy as I’m a traditionalist like that, but I am ‘Overall’ top guy at PlayDip if you feel that distinction is more credible for you.

Nah I hear PlayDippers are actually terrible. Not credible distinction at all.

(And of course, although I've hardly actually spent any time at all on their site, I can clearly state that the stereotypes I've been exposed to must be correct.)

It’s not about actual rankings or credible distinctions, it’s about making false claims... Any chance you’re related to Trump?

It's a monthly bid, for the reasonable price of $49.99 you can be top guy next month!

I wonder if this relates to how my HoF ranking says I’m one less than the table below...

Thanks for doing this mods! If anything it showed me how piss poor I really am. I thought #1 Live and #1 Gunboat were attainable. Now that all players are included rather than just the last six months....eh. I need to get better.

This one I have figured out, it's because it pulls your ranking as an integer, 1037, and then checks the db for any peakRatings higher (yours is actually 1037.25) so it finds 1. Probably be fixed by the weekend.
@emc, interesting, looking into it. My short term advice is get better and you won't see that issue ;)
