Thread: Bad idea to show only top 100!

  1. #1

    Default Bad idea to show only top 100!

    When the webmaster decided to only show the top 100 it became almost ridiculous and very frustrating to find my friends and to keep track of their numbers so you can find them, as is now required! This was supposed to be fun and interesting, maybe a bit of a friendly competition among your friends. This is a great site, but is becoming too cumbersome to utilize.

    When you click on the show all at the bottom of the top 100, you can't sort by name to scroll down to yours or your friend's ID, why? The list sorts for the top 100 names at this point and you are left wondering still.

    The person in charge should really think before implementing such a bad algorithm! Does it hurt anything to show all right up front? Or, do you just want to make more work for your users? Keep making it difficult to use and you will not have a site.

    Start reading the thread at the below link by clinking the below, if you read it you will better understand why we are having problems with the AutoTracker. The Administrator is doing everything he can to cure the problem. Maybe you're a computer expert and can help?

    Hey my friend -- I'm glad you're on and I'm really glad you're starting to make yourself known.

    The Webmaster - TOM - has spent many days and nights making this the best possible SITE he possibly could. There are many features of this site that far exceed any other and if you take the time to enjoy them you'll find the benefits and rewards -- grow as you stay longer.

    This is my first year OFF the AT (AutoTracker) and that is where your hang up is. It is NOT Tom's fault -- how the names are numbered. Every person has the exact same opportunity to be at the TOP or at the BOTTOM and the TOP 100 merely reflect the decisions those individuals have made.

    If your friends aren't included -- it has nothing to do with TOM. Believe it or not - it's not even Tom -- BUT someone else who does a lot of work every single night calculating up everyone's moves. That's a lot of work for a 'free site'.

    Listen friend -- please be careful about sounding 'negative' - and try to be cool and appreciate what's here.

    I'd like to hear the more 'positive' things - so we can know you're cool.

    PEACE MAN -- Welcome to the MB
