PSA: Site Leaderboards Will Be Turned Off Until Early Next Week

By Rich Stone, 2 years ago
UPDATE: We haven't been able to finish all of the development for this change (it's actually pretty huge and affects a lot of areas of the site) in time to get it live today. So it will now be early next week when we will turn the new leaderboards on. Apologies for any inconvenience, but we want to make sure we get it right.

Hi everyone

As promised last year, we are moving to a multi-genre system for categorizing our games.

This means that our site leaderboard generation needs to change to allow for the new system.

We are also making some other changes to simplify and speed up the leaderboard generation - at the moment we build over 2,000 different leaderboards for each statistic we allow you to track.

We hope to have all these changes completed and live by the end of tomorrow - in the mean time we will be switching off site leaderboards as we make the changes to the data and remap all the tracking bots that you guys have set up.

Thanks for your patience during this time!
