Well, it might be a little little over doing it to have one board just for stats, but if you guys find it's better to do it that way, then of course I'll just make it.

I think it's important to think about what kind of system to display the stats works best. I'll let you guys debate it out whether or not it will improve with a new board.

I don't see what's wrong with the current system, except for people with slow connections. O.o

Plus, if we have a board where everyone has there old threads the following happens:

- Old, active member's threads are pushed to the back by threads of new members, who often never battle.
- A few people bump their thread daily just to be on top.
- People threads change pages whenever new members/bumps happen... annoying, I think so.

The alphabet thing is OK, I guess, if you combine unpopular letters to make the threads fit on one page.

-the thing about bumping is... you can't bump your thread like proboards.
-plus, there would be a stickied thread that lists all the members in ABC order and link to their stats, so it won't matter too much where your stat thread is.
-and, some members want two posts for their stats... because they can't fit everything they want in one post. that isn't a good excuse but i think two posts for stats will make them cleaner to look at.

in the long run, i think it will be easier. eventually, i will run out of space to fit links in the current stat threads. the next post is Allie's and i can't ask her to move her stats if she isn't around.

Yes for me. Personally I think it gives people more space...as said, you will eventually run out of space, i think i almost did so i had to take some pictures out to shorten it.

You make some interesting points. There were some bumpers at the PB forum who bumped by deleting the old thread and making a new one, so that can still be done. But as far as running out of room for links in the current thread, yeah... that could be a problem. But maybe you could take hyperlinks out of the later names on the list and just link to a page? Later pages aren't hard to scroll through because most of those posts don't have 50+ pictures like page one stats do. Oh, this would be a pain to do, but you could also make the links to posts shorter with urlcut.com. I don't even use the links though, I just look at the page number whoever I wants stats are on and go there. It works beter for me.

Although probably the best thing that you mentioned and I hadn't even considered is having 2 page stats. For some people, that's quite a problem, and in the current situation, long stats often take my slower computer 5 or so minutes to load. So in that aspect, it could be good. But using urlcut.com would help too... or plain leaving pictures out, waiting forever for the page to load down to my stats because of other people's pictures is plain-out annoying. O.o

Hm, most of the against views are more of, "It's hardly a difference...", so I guess in general it's a good thing. But can you make the links in the new system non-popup? Maybe it's just me, maybe it's not, but popup links make my Internet crash...

I voted no, purely because I see nothing really wrong with the Trainer Stats as they are.

Any URPGers who have been around here for a while now know where their stats are, and any newbies to the URPG only have to look at the end of the thread.

But maybe I'm just saying this because I don't really participate in the URPG much now... meh, I still stand by what I said though, I think that the Trainer Stats being a thread is much better than making a whole board for it.

Besides, how can we guarantee that EVERY SINGLE URPGer is gonna' move their stats over to the new board, unless one person copies everyone's stats, but then they might change during that time period...

Now I've confuzzled myself,

Well, simply put, nah, I prefer the stats as they are, ^_^

I prefer 11 pages in a thread, then 11 pages on a board. I vote no.

Thoughts: Wait. I'm not even IN the URPG!
