Trackmania Rankings opens its doors! Trackmania
Rankings is a website which references teams, players and competitions,
in order to establish an interesting and always current ranking of the
different teams and players of Trackmania Forever. It includes a
Trackmania Nations Forever ranking, but also a Trackmania United
However, there are probably still a lot of
mistakes and incomplete files, and we are aware of it. Therefore, we'll
ask you to do your best to help us with making this website better and
better: we will keep the "beta-mode" for a few time, so that everyone
can tell us about players and teams missing in the database. Notice
that we do not need to add players and teams which have never
participated in any competition, because anyway, they would not appear
in the ranking. Reading the FAQ will let you know how to ask for modifications.
let's talk about the ranking itself. The different competitions are
divided into 8 categories. It's obvious that not every competition
brings the same amount of points. For winning the most important
competitions (such as ESWC, GC, NC, STC, UL), teams/players will get
168 points, for example.
If you are in a team, your team's
results influence your personal ranking (we know that being in a strong
team does not necessarily mean you are strong, but players make the
results of a team, and so they completely deserve to get some points
for the individual ranking). Your individual results also influence the ranking of your team.
ranking is "always current" because the amount of points teams and
players have is based on their results over the last 6 months. A
competition result becomes "inactive" at the beginning of the sixth
month after the end of the competition.
cool is that everyone can see everyone else's information in just a few
clicks. Players are teams can add the different RSS feeds coming from Trackmania Rankings to their own website: news, results, rankings...
TrackMania Rankings has their own Forum,
in which you can talk about everything that concerns Trackmania
Rankings. Feel free to ask questions about the website. Suggestions
are, of course, also welcome.
We are currently
looking for administrators, because running such a website is a huge
amount of work. There are various tasks for which we need assistants,
but there are some conditions you need to be aware of before applying:
- You have to be someone the head-admins completely trust. - You have to speak english (you must at least understand it, and you must be understandable by anyone). - You have to be motivated, and aware of the fact that administrating such a website is a huge amount of work.
Please send your application mail to lg2303 at orange dot fr. You can also contact us on IRC, at #rankings.tm on Quakenet.
Here are the different administrator categories we have to strengthen:
- Newswriter: This
is the category that you have to speak good English for. On Trackmania
Rankings, there must be news concerning the most important competitions.
- Database Administrator: This
is the most important part of Trackmania Rankings. You will have to
manage teams' line-ups and competitions results. A perfect knowledge of
the Trackmania Community is therefore required. Speaking French would
be preferred, but not obligatory.
When you write your e-mail,
please specify which category you are applying for, and the game you
are specialized in (Trackmania United or Trackmania Nations).
If you find Trackmania Rankings is an interesting concept, and want to know more about it, you can read the following things:
to Atze-Peng, Bergie, Bramble, Cibermix, Davidd, Ramiro Junior,
Skynight and Zooz, for their involvement and their enthousiasm during
the beta-testing phase, and of course thanks to Lolomax and Rastaben,
because both did a great job filling up the database with the
information it now contains. Last but not least, congratulations to
Duke, who got the first ideas about Trackmania Rankings, and who
entirely developed it.
Hoping you'll get an entire satisfaction from TrackMania Rankings, and that it will become a useful tool,
прежде всего это открытие сайта http://www.tm-rankings.com/ который вбирает в себя новости,анонсы чемпионатов,капов атакже рейтинги игроков,команд которые складываются из выйграных чемпов и капов) для регистрации нуна на форуме создать отдельную тему по шаблону в соответствующей ветке....забавно они вчера сделали в мания линке новость а сегодня удалили...наверно изза неисправности рейтинговой таблицы)
