The post ranks you guys came up with were too long to be put on a badge. The badges can get shrunken down to 16 x 16 pixels at times.

Edit:
News for others.

I've decided to add some gloss to the generated signatures. Only thing I can't do is add cool animations for everyone. I would have to start paying for hosting if I did that. My signature alone is 18.6mb. Multiplied by 209 users is over 3gb. Not to mention, the stats get re-uploaded hour by hour (which would eat up a ton of bandwidth). I only have 1000mb of free hosting. Currently, the generated signatures are 40kb. I only ever have to upload 15mb hour by hour.

Alright. I've modified the code to navigate to a quarter of the image, as opposed to the half point of the image. Should be fixed in 8 - 10 minutes.

The gloss is a nice addition :9 What library are you using for generating the images/gifs?

Its a combination of GDI and a third party API for outputing a GIF.

Edit(3/15/2014):
For those of you who want to see a more recent run of the stats.
[media=youtube]Hh_0NFKZbGs[/media]

The stats run faster than they ever have. 24 seconds is now the average time to process data, and the stats are able to be ran every 5 minutes. Removing badges/signatures also aided heavily in the speed increase.

If you've ever posted a blank post on the forums, there is nothing I can do. Since, that is what causes quote issues.

What about post counts? I'm pretty sure most of us have been past those numbers for awhile now...

If any of you guys are wondering about the certainty calculations the stats make, its based on whether you've actually maintained a consistent post count across two weeks. If you make 0 posts one week, then make 14 posts the next, the stats calculate the values between the two weeks and create a percentage based on the highest value.

"0/14 = 0" so there is a 0% chance of calculations lining up in the coming 12 months.

Examples:
  • If you make 9 posts one week, and 14 posts the next week, the stats assume a 64% chance of calculations lining up in the coming 12 months.
  • If you make 14 posts one week, and 14 posts the next week, there is a 100% chance of calculations lining up in the coming 12 months.
  • If you make 15 posts one week, and 14 posts the next week, there is a 93% chance of calculations lining up in the coming 12 months.
  • etc
Hopefully that clears some things up.
