Forums - Gaming Discussion - What's causing the delays in chart updates?

I can't be the only one noticing the lag, right?



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

We still have updates>?

This site lost it years ago with the numbers.



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

I know, the updates were actually being pretty good and consistent a few weeks ago, but it's been almost an entire week since we got the UK weekly update for July 17th.

You must be pretty new here.



Partly my fault, partly Brett's.

I fucked up the latest chart I was working on (the next German chart) by making a rookie error. If an error is made in an unpublished software chart then it needs to be completely reset so that I can start again from scratch. What's causing the delay? Well Brett is the only one who can reset the charts and I've been waiting all week for him to do so but he still hasn't.

So that's the reason for the hold-up, and I've been kicking myself about it all week because I know if I need to request a reset it can take anything from 24 hours to a fucking week for Brett to actually do something. As soon as he responds to me and resets the chart I can get back to doing a chart or two every day.

So yeah, sorry guys... :(

And nor will it until there's an industry-wide consensus as to what generation it fits into (and if it's the start of a new one then we'll be waiting for at least one competitor to also launch so that we can introduce a meaningful new market share graph).

It's on the weekly chart, which is what matters for now.



Basically we need Brett to place a little more trust in machina. I can understand he wanted to ease him into doing ioi's old jobs and didn't want to hand him full powers right away. But machina has proved he's the man for the job and should be thrown into the deep end. It would increase the productivity of the updates big time.

It's ok I think it's seems that a lot of people here are used to a wait when it comes to the sites numbers anyways lol. Any chance when everything is sorted the charts will be updated at a bit of a faster pace to catch up for the lost time?
