Today I'd like to announce a new and special section of the RuneTrack website - Clan Tracking!

The Clan Tracking section is focused on providing clans with a unique and efficient way of displaying their members' experience gains. The first Clan Tracking project to be introduced is a Clan Competition Tracker. Clans will often host xp gaining competitions, but are always left with the troublesome task of manually recording and calculating experience gains among their members.

With the ability of setting customized competition tracking times, displaying interesting statistics such as cumulative/average clan xp gained, and allowing live xp updates, RuneTrack's clan competition trackers leave clan members free to enjoy the competition without constantly crunching the xp gain numbers manually.

Simply click "View Clan Competitions" on the left menu to explore its features on an already created sample competition tracker.

I hope this new feature proves useful for clans. Be on the lookout for more Clan Tracking projects in development! :)

Our members have been enjoying, for months, logging out of runescape and then clicking "Update Competition Stats" to see their various standings. With this months "Old Goats - Slayer" we are unable to do that. We are getting a message that says the stats were recently updated. Only one player out of 11 can see how they are doing.

I looked here in the forum and on main site but see no message about any changes being made.

Can you let me know so I can tell our members?

Hi,

Yes, due people abusing the "Update" button, there was a minor update made to fix it. The button still does exactly what it used to - with only one change: it can only be clicked on once per hour (though it allows a click every 3 minutes during the last 30 minutes of the competition to allow for the most accurate final xp capture). Remember that once the button is clicked, the stats for every single clan member are updated, not just for the person who clicked it.

I don't think this really changes much - the stats page is still very up to date (look at the "Last Updated" line, which will display that the tracker has just been updated only minutes ago), but this just prevents people from attempting to overload the system by sending requests in every second. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused. :)

Thank you for the quick reply. We had no idea our fun of being able to get instant contest standings was causing a problem. I'll let our members know that we're only able to get the information once an hour. Our contestants are in time zones from the U K to Australia so they play at different times during the day. We'll adjust.

Thanks again,
Tamarac Elf
