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?
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.
