Spinning Wheel on Hall of Fame page

Postby HooCairs » October 12th, 2017, 10:25 am

I don't see any data in the hall of fame for season 21. All I get is a spinning wheel.

Yeah I have been wondering about that as well. Want to see if someone else miraculously sneaked in front of me

Seems like the server update job failed, we'll fix it tomorrow. Can we survive until then? ;)

Thanks for fixing and of course you will understand that I have to send my psychiatrist's bill to EW. :ugeek:

Still a spinning wheel for season 21. I keep a list of all previous seasons and usually check once a week to see if I can access. I have yet to have season 21 load. I check the wikia just as often to see if HooCairs was able to get the data as well. Since the wikia chart isn't updated since his last post, figure he is also still failing to be able to view the data.

Wait a minute! A job for the hall of fame? Now it dawns on me why you have these issues. The HoF is dynamic? It should be static!

Now I understand why you have these big issues.
  1. Seasons 1-7 are broken. You cannot reproduce the data because you have either lost these seasons, or they were stored differently back then. Your job cannot find the data. If the HoF was a static table, you could just put in the data which is readily available. I have sent the correct values to pretty much every of your web developers from the past. Now I get why none of them could fix it. With a static table you could restore these seasons.
  2. The HoF is slow to load. A simple static table with a few hundred entries would be very fast to load.
  3. You have a hard time removing cheaters retrospectively, because you need to go and change the source data. If the HoF was static, changes were faster to make.
  4. It takes you a long time to produce the HoF after every season. I know this from former employees. Sure, a static table would mean some manual work to enter the last season's values, maybe an hour at most? But this is little time spent compared to those hours trying to fix the dynamic table without a result.
The only data you could keep dynamic could be the avatar. But even this is not super necessary to have. Otherwise there is no reason to have a job regularly producing HoF data every that really never changes.

If anyone of EW is still reading this, consider fixing the HoF by making it static and you can fix all of the issues above (from my point of view) and make your own live easier in the future. I am happy to send the correct data for seasons 1-7 another time. Oh and please choose a design that doesn't show a season over 10 web pages. :)
