kosp, If you actually read the sticky in Site Issues you'd know that Q-Xpress links are temporarily removed. That means that they will be back at some point, hence the temporarily bit. As for downloads, yes, I know about the issues, but I can't really do much at the moment.

Also, please don't hijack other threads or tell me what to do. Thank you.

The "Downloads per day" graph seems not to work properly.

The entire day it shows 6 downloads for today, but I looked into some of the new graphs which show the downloads per day for each upload and it is more than 6.

You can only get downloads for yesterday - not today.

I think it is great, and i am happy that moomins are downloading my houses ><

I hope that they have fun.. Although little Mi (My or however it is spelt.. I dont remember as i used to watch it many years ago) probably will get lost ><

I just wonder if anyone will add me as a favourite creator.. Doubt it, but i can always dream...

Thanks a lot for all your hard work Delphy, and i hope all goes well with sorting out the bits and bobs that still need to be done :D

Ok, I didn't know that was changed too, I did like it better when it showed the downloads for today too, but there will be reasons for that.

But then why did I get 6 downloads listed in it at all?

edit: in case you missunderstood: I mean the main graph, not the one that shows you how many downloads you got for which upload (the only graph that was there before these changes).

Eeee nifty! I just added about 50 people to my Favourite Creators list and all their avatars look so shiny next to each other. Actually, now I've made myself curious how many people are really on my list. Is there a way to see that? Spying on other people's lists would be cool too... if that's something you had planned for the future. If not, no biggie.

The scorecards look great too... much prettier and more organized and nifty and fun! I love all the stats. Awesomeness all around!

ETA: Oops, found a bug. When I click on "Faves" to sort the scorecard by how many people have Fave'd a thread, all the threads with no Faves stat get moved to the bottom of the page under the "FAQs / Tutorials" heading instead of in the Downloads chart where they belong.

I also find it quite telling that only 3 out of 10 werewolves like a nice Manly Man Purse. Very interesting stat.

RealGanacampo, it's probably due to timezone differences. The servers work out the "days" based on thier own clock which is based in Central US time... so a "today" for me might be different from a today on the server.

I'm not sure what you mean about removing the todays downloads from that main graph - they are still there. I was refereing to the dates underneath that main graph.

Delphy i was wondering, it would be really cool if we could get a " you have already added this creator to your favorites" so i( we) don't keep adding the same people over and over like i do because i have altzheimer obviously.

You will find my older and newest creations here

RealGanacampo,

I think the change you are seeing is that the graph gets updated less often now, could that be? Every six hours instead of more or less realtime, which means (if I understand it right) it's going to show "6 downloads" for six hours, and then jump up to the current value. It also means that it loads instantly now, instead of taking a few minutes to be generated, which I guess is why it was changed.

(I am talking about the main graph, the large one on top)


Speaking of Alzheimer: I noticed that there's favourite downloads of mine that I *still* haven't thanked -- would it be possible to automatically add a "Thanks" when fave'ing a download, if it's not already there?

Love the changes and thanks for the favourites.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

You can't add a creator multiple times - it checks internally, although it doesn't display any messages if you do have a duplicate.

Also yes, plasticbox is right, it's probably to do with the caching too...

i like the new changes very much. thanks a lot for it, delphy! it's a good innovation! i like especially the scorecard changes, because i like to see more detailed statistics.

but is it possible, that the statistics are a little bit erroneous in the moment? the data from yesterday show that my newest posting had alomost no downloads, but instead an older one that has never been downloaded so often had a plenty of downloads...

Yes, that explains it.

But the graph also didn't take minutes to generate before this change, so this is one thing that got worse for me, but if it took a lot of time to load for others it's ok.

ganguro, I haven't seen any erroneous numbers cropping up. It tracks everything by post id so it should all be linked properly.

Delphy - not sure if it's related, but my total downloads count seem to be fluctuating between about 893,000 and 905,000. It's been going backwards and forwards fairly frequently over the past few days. Doesn't worry me at all, just thought it a little odd.

Echo, that'll happen depending on how you sort the scorecard - there are 2 different algorithms used and they return slightly different results.

Noticed an error. If you click the graph icon next to a download title in your creator scorecard you are taken to an individual graph page for that submission. If that submission doesn't have any downloads in the last month you will receive an error page indicating that a Divide By Zero error has occurred.

More specifically:

This will be quite helpful. I will not be downloading stuff for a bit until I fix my game, so being able to save things I want to download (and some that I will want to check back on even once downloaded) will be very nice.
