Welcome to the forums, My Rites! Thanks for not publishing IPs!


#42

Let us know if this ever happens again and we will investigate.


#43

I am working through your suggestions and thinking about different ways to rank servers. I am almost done but anyone here has an idea of how we could rank servers who don’t get as many votes please let me know.

BH2.0 will rank servers based on:
Votes
Users Online
----Other ideas welcome----


#44

Why not have the top showing servers not go by votes, but by amount of active users online? That would rotate the top servers a lot. Full servers at the top. Votes still show, but it would probably be more fair that way.
Or even make it a user option, full servers or by votes at top, depending on what you click.


#45

Working on something like that :slight_smile:


#46

I already mentioned this to Red on PM, but might as well share it here:

If we could somehow obtain the creation date of a server (It’s visible to owner’s on the Owner’s Portal), then we could sort the server list by age.

Wouldn’t that be great? You could look for servers less than a week old and go and claim some pole items!
Or - perhaps you want to take a look at the Grand Skeeve’s Gigantic Empire - well over 2 years in age.
It opens up some nice possibilities.


#47

That is a great idea Skeeve! Wingy and I were just wishing for something like this for pole reward collection.


#48

Thanks Shariu, yeah it would open up some new goals. I’m having a bit of fun though harvesting my own pole items from 1/16x Single Player Vanilla Worlds. Still pretty time consuming, but once you work your way up to gold spade production, it becomes only a matter of time and patient chopping before getting that one diamond you need to upgrade your portal. TC cost is pretty darn high though… but, worth the fun.


#49

My fear with age is owners will simply lie about their server age to get attention. I wonder if there is a way to determine age…


#50

What sort of attention? And what age do they lie about?

EDIT: And I have a question: what do you get for having the most votes?


#51

Oh me and skeeve were talking about a leaderboard for oldest server. However, the lack of ability to find how old a server is means that you would just put in age. People would put in old ages to make their server seem old when its not.

By being #1 on BlockheadsFans you get traffic from thousands visiting the site. You get #1 by getting tons of votes.

Good questions!


#52

Perhaps owner’s could post a screenshot of their owner’s portals showing the creation date.
Like this for example:

Any server that is so old that it was migrated from Blockserver.net over 2 1/2 years ago would show “Unknown” for the creation date. But that’s ok because obviously the owner wouldn’t be lying - it’s old!


#53

You might be able to get web-based OCR technology, you wouldn’t even need to look at the screen shot!


#54

Uh…thanks…? Hmm, well, having people at a server is Lways interesting. I agree with Skeeve’s idea. No screenshot, no entry! Yeah, I’m cruel…


#55

Haha - works for me Alexandra! :slight_smile:


#56

That would work for cloud servers, but not Mac servers.


#57

Does anyone still use mac servers?


#58

Of course. Most of them are ‘off the grid’ so to speak, as they don’t show on the search feature. But they (we) are out there. :slight_smile:

Edit: still, I d like to apologize. After I posted that, I considered the thread topic. Mac servers really have no place in this discussion.


#59

No problem! I would give more weight to them but it seems they are probably few and far between.

blockheadsfans.com is a highly useful site of checking which servers are the most popular. This should be a FIVE!
