For me, the last update of the solo ladder was this morning at 07:10 (hour of Paris). It may be a problem on the nadeo's server but I think that all it's ok (nadeo's server send me the update notification so it must be updated)

Smurf, I understand that Nadeo probably won't give (m)any others access to their stats database anymore.
Do you plan on allowing others to access your data?
Not the database itself, but perhaps an XML file filled with only the entries that have a corresponding account name registered on tm-ladder.com?

Another Question:
Why my TM-Ladder sign don't says "Forever" or "Stadium" like yours ?

for the first question:
if nadeo give me a second access I will try to update http://tmladder.free.fr

For the 2nd one:
When the nickname is too long, the -forever- is erased. it's only because if the nick is under this writing, the nick isn't readable.

Cool, thanks for the reply.

I found a small issue, if you could even call it that, with the ladder.

If I look up myself, I have 616.80 LP (I know; I haven't been driving at all since Forever, and I suck at driving if I do drive).
I'm placed 451604 with United worldwide.
However, if I search for myself using my name, I have 616.8 LP.
Note the missing 0.

I actually discovered this with a friends account; the numbers of nearby drivers didn't line up properly.
It's not the case with everybody, so maybe it has to do with rounding (are there even .001 LP?) and/or amount of fractional digits shown.
(It's also when I'm not logged on.)

A question for tm-ladder admin:

Our new clan Stormracers has a tag that doesn't show correctly on tm-ladder or signature banner from there.

You can see the results on my signature banner below.

I am not the one who came up with the tag and I do not know what character was used for the S but it shows correctly in game and we would like to keep it the way it is. But we would also like it to be correct on tm-ladder.

Is there anyway you could make it work?
Add it to fonts list or something? I am just guessing here.

Any info would be appreciated. Thx. :mrgreen:

Here is a direct link; it's an "Ș".
It's not a matter of adding a font (although that could be used as a workaround), since the font is obviously working for other letters.
It's just that the font doesn't include that specific letter.

hi,
I could specify Retodon8 answer: in fact this letter is included in the font file (arial unicode) but the php librairie used to generate signs (GD2) seems to be not able to render some letters and I don't know why...

After a quick bit of research into the issue this discussion is probably the most informative thing I found.

Thanks for the quick responses. :thumbsup:

I guess I was wrong when I said it didn't display correctly on tm-ladder (I didn't even notice). The signature banner was more prevalent so I made an assumtion about the actual web site. Evidently it must be something in the banner software.

A bit too technical for me to follow but thanks. :?

So as it stands now...... no solution other than changing the character?

Crap!
Oh well, I guess we will deal with it.

Thanks again for looking into it. :1

I will take a look to this problem as soon as possible.
I stumbled across on this player on a team website http://fr.tm-ladder.com/1070297_rech.php. It's not really the same "S" than you. His is a "Ş" and your is a "Ș" but the letter works in signs (Image). I don't know if it matter for you but you coult take this letter in you nickname but the rendering in the game is not the same: Image
