Your account & avatar for Web-based Player Stats

Post by [SC]GATOR »

One of the nice things about our stats page is that there has been a link made between the game server, our forums and the stats page:

- Your stats avatar is linked to your forum avatar.
- Your stats are linked to your in-game server name.

Avatar:

One of the noticeable links is the avatar that appears next to the players name on the stats page. The avatar that is automatically placed there is the one in your profile from your [SC] forum account.
If you do not have a forum avatar, or you choose not to load one, the stats page will assign you a generic one.
If you do not have a forum account (i.e. a non-clan member without a forum account), make a forum account and upload your avatar. It will then appear on the stats page.
The link between the stats page and the forums is an interesting one, and enables us to further develop additional items that can be added. That includes pushing data the other way, and having stats related results appear in the forums.

Your in-game stats/claiming your profile:

When a user views their own stats this will happen:
1. You will be prompted to login with your forum account (if you aren't already logged-in).
2. You will be asked to enter your in-game name (enter it exactly as in game- colors not needed).
* The in-game name field of your forum account does not work, this is why you need to type it in.
3. If your name is good it will be linked to your forum account and await approval (a forum admin will approve it- this is done so someone else doesn't claim your name). After approval, you will be able to view your stats like normal.
4. If your name does not exist on the server or you have selected a name already 'approved' you will get an error message telling you that your name hasn't been linked.If this happens, make a post in the error/questions sticky link in this part of the forum.

* POINTS 3 & 4 WILL NOT BE IMPLEMENTED UNTIL A LATER DATE. YOU CAN ACCESS WITHOUT AN ADMIN APPROVAL.
** YOU MUST HAVE PLAYED AT LEAST 1 MAP IN THE SERVER, AFTER THE LAUNCH OF THE STATS-PAGE, IN ORDER FOR YOUR NAME TO BE VALID AT THE STATS-PAGE LOGIN. IF YOU HAVEN'T, YOU WILL SEE A MESSAGE WHEN YOU TRY TO LOGIN TO YOUR STATS-PAGE ACCOUNT.
