250000 games (kind of)!

#1 Post by BobMcBob » Sun Oct 06, 2019 4:14 am

I just noticed (yes, I'm probably a little slow), but the site has recently reached 250000 games! Or should I say, the number of games created has exceeded 250000. A fair number of those games never actually started. There's still only 93043 finished games. Congratulations to LeWarz for creating the 250000th game!

So, each time a game is created, it gets a unique number, and if it then fails to get enough players to start, that number is still used up?

Yup, looks like it. Typical database unique numbering stuff.

Does every site have its coding accessible through github? I didn’t know that was a thing

Not every site. Just the best ones. It's called "Open Source".

A lot of proprietary code is also on GitHub, but on private repositories and not accessible to the public.

It's certainly the best way to do it!

Game IDs are likely a sequence. Once those numbers are pulled, they don't replenish unless there's some outside logic in place (which can be dangerous and cause issues). Pretty standard.
