@TimD: It is still on my list. All I can say, it is under the character page rework stuff.

@The Masked Ferret: Unlikely, I don't cache much. If so it is on the client side. Maybe the nightly job of recalculating the statistics failed... I oughta look into that.

@James Anderson: I shall add the 1-98 and the faction is also tied to the character page rework. So on the short list!

Simon, thanks for fixing the SFS Scenario counting in the statistics!

Interestingly enough I have not done anything just yet. :P

Alright deprecating this thread, new thread at: http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2v76t?Pfstrackernet-info

Alright, new thread! Since the old URL is not in use anymore, and we cannot edit the first post anymore since it is years old, new thread.

The old thread is still around if you are looking for older statements: http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2t5ah?Our-PFS-sessiontracker

So I've build a tracker for your PFS (and SFS) sessions, you can track them and try to match with other players who have played or not played certain content.

The URL is: https://www.pfstracker.net

This URL will not change as long as I run the service. :)

If you are afraid it might go offline, you can transfer your entire played history to an excel file in the profile page.

This is my profile: https://www.pfstracker.net/#/players/25642/

Questions, suggestions, missing content, etc. go here. :) Thanks peeps!

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

@The masked Ferret: I'll look into it.

@Sandra Wilkinson: Well... maybe if we yell loud enough a mod would be so kind. Alternatively we can start a new thread with the proper link. This one has been around for years.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

After roughly 3 years I have chosen not to extend that domain. Saving some money. ;) That said, I would love to update the URL in the first post, but it is quite locked. :(

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

The pfstracker server is running a Debian version which needs a major update (/salute). This will require some downtime. I am planning on updating the server july 1st at 12:00-15:00 CET (https://time.is/nl/CET)

I hope to be done in 15 minutes, but it is likely to take a few hours. This is something I only have to do like once every 3 years or some such.

Regardless, planned maintenance! Plan accordingly!

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Nope, but that is on the short list. It is the tools for exporting that I was talking about. Exporting history is still new and for now seems to be working quite well for solo people. So now I would want to export played histories aggregated... somehow. :)

Maybe export the results of a query, maybe just export entire played histories. Trying to figure out what columns, rows, etc. to put in that.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

It is indeed low, but at some point that would be what is required to do a bunch of new features. The thing is that would require a rework of all the database querying and datastructures in the tracker. :) Gonna be a while, do not intend to do so yet. I do not get the feeling it is a dealbreaker for people so far.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Seen that question before. To do that I need to do a rewrite of about half the code of the tracker to allow for registering scenarios multiple times and stuff. It is on my list, just not near the top.

Near the top is a character option rework, expanding maximum group sizes, some bugfixes and a tool for organisers to download the played history of a group and people at a time.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Added, thanks Nils. :)

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Alright content added datadump:
- All PFS S9 up until 25
- Version C of The Solstice Scar
- Skitter Shot
- We Be Supergoblins (without a link or blurb)
- The SFS multitable special
- The Strange Aeons AP (I keep an eye on the sanctioned content directory, this was not in it, yet it DOES have a chronicle thanks for tipping me)

If I am still missing any content do let me know.

And we're back! Turned out the cert-supplier had made a small mistake as well. Regardless, please let me know if anything is not working.

Once again apologies, I don't think I've ever been down this long before.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Yeah that is the issue exactly. :)

For the techies among us:

So it turns out that due to the GDPR they cannot send me the new certificate on my personal email address, because they cannot check that it is me (because whois is blocking the info due to the GDPR) so we have been trying different validation methods.

Set up a CNAME to do validation, but isn't working. So I am now (on a sunday, sigh) setting up a way to recieve mail on @pfstracker.net so they can send validation there.

That said it is sunday and I am not expecting much support on a sunday.

Right, so the customer service is sort of unhelpful. It is a long story, but it will be a bit longer. :( Sorry!

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Auke noticed that I made a boo-boo with the certificate on the site. I am in the process of putting up a new one, but Comodo (supplier) is being slow in giving me it.

So... at the moment you cannot reach the pfstracker for a few hours, apologies.

Oeh surprise! Cool. :) Gonna go back to coding group features into pfstracker now.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

VPN hm? That seems to suggest something is being blocked. The tracker does load 2 scripts off-site, but those are from google hoster and cloudflare hosted versions of basic frameworks... I can't see those being blocked on a normal connection. Weird.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I'll be adding that content soon.

@Andreas F.: Weird, sounds like a device problem. Curious though what device that was. What browser and device were you using?

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Character page rework is indeed on my shortlist. Together with adding SFS character options.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

@Majuba: I do store that data and it is in the spreadsheet. The date when you checked the box is the value you see in the columns for PC, GM, PC (CORE) and GM (CORE). :) Unless that is not what you meant?

And yeah I concluded that sometimes you just want to do more then a interface can do, so... excel. This is meant as a try out for potentially exporting queries on the search page into excel and possibly also groups. First I want to see how and if people use this before diving to deep into that though.

@The Masked Ferret: Glad you like it. I shall be adding the new content, and thanks for pointing out that Dead Suns 1 is an evergreen.

I have not considered adding tags. I am not really familiar with them, it is possible to add them aye. I can look into it, would that be useful for sorting and stuff?

EDIT: The Dead Suns stuff should be having a level range now and #1 is a evergreen. That will show up in statistics when those get generated tonight.

EDIT: And SFS scenarios up to and including 21 are in as well.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Alrighty! New build is up. If you go to the pfstracker you should get a popup with what is new. Let me know what ya'all think or if anything is not working.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Good catch Mike. I just noticed that Into the Unknown was lacking more information, like a link and a description. It was a placeholder that I have now updated. When the statistics run tonight (CEST) it should show up in the SFS evergreen category.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

In the meantime: Next up is a download of all your played history (or someone else's) in xlsx format. I got a fair idea what to put in it, but if you want to see something specific speak now :P

Alright! The first feature-fruits of my labours is now online.

https://www.pfstracker.net/#/statistics

The new and improved statistics page. It has a new layout, scales better on mobile devices, but there is more.

If you click on any player you go to their profile. If you click on any scenario/ap/mod/other content you go to the store page for said content.

And it now also has 4 starfinder categories.

Please let me know what you think of it. It is working, but call it a public beta phase. I am not going to put it in the what's new yet until it had a few days to run.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

@The Masked Ferret: The statistics page does not keep SFS in mind yet. It is on my shortlist of things to add. Same goes for SFS characters.

-------

Anyhow I just updated a lot of the server backside libraries. Let me know if anything isn't working.

I am aware of an issue (that was there before as well) where the last few pages of a scenario query that shows 'all the scenarios available for PFS' are empty. I know why, I am on that.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Dear pfstracker users. I have started doing some more coding to implement cool features. Unfortunately a library I use for the database has recieved upgrades and is no longer compatible with pfstracker. This is not bad, it has a lot of cool features.

It does however mean that I need to do a bunch of underwater recoding work first to make everything work again. I ask for some patience and some understanding if some bugs do make it to the production environment.

Once again please report any bugs you find here. :) Thanks!

Ah sweet, look at me being all out of it. Dayjob is keeping me quite busy. Think I should run a nice scenario at my place soon. ;)

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Alright! All that content has been added.

I heard something about a high level scenario from PFS about cracking the jewel though... is that in here?

Did any PF APs get sanctioned when I wasn't looking?

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Awesome! Thanks Gerard, Virginia and Edwin. I shall first add the content I missed to the database then in my spare time I will try to write a bit of a admin backend.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Hello peeps,

I have a idea. I notice that I am just not always in a position to update all scenarios. Also adding authors is something I usually postpone, not ideal.

What I could do is write a small application (browser based) in which some people could help me out and manage creating and updating (I would probably turn deleting off because of obvious reasons). That would be people that we know we can trust, so forum reputation.

Would anyone be interested and willing to help out with keeping the content nice and up-to-date? Before I code a 'admin' interface.

Here are some things that have changed significantly in my campaign. They are going to take down Harrigan's fleet this tuesday.

1: They have a alliance with the hag coven on the Isle of Empty Eyes.
2: Norgorber is actually against the Chelaxian invasion. It would lead to Asmodeus becoming the dominant religion in the Shackles region, thus I have a good reason for a non-Norgorberite to carry Aiger's Kiss.
3: Same Norgorber situation: They made 'friends' with a group of halflings that 'speak for the grey master' and trade in secrets. Everyone one of the halflings introduces himself as 'ricardo', so the PCs call them the Ricardo's.
4: The hurricane king is going to not be the final showdown, I am switching the invasion and the assault on the hurricane king around.
5: There is a big alliance with 'Raffle' the halfling pirate lord. See my PCs are all playing women (and most are OOC) and they've been happily marrying themselves out under shackle law. :P
6: One of the PCs is a dhampir from Nex and her 'dad' wants her back. He has sent vamppires to retrieve her, a squadron in Harrigan's fleet and has allied with Cheliax for the invasion to come get her himself!

I do believe that we will not be continueing the campaign after the chelaxian invasion. It seems like a very nice ending and we are up for something new after that.

PS: Do I hear pit fiend on the chelaxian navy, I do believe so! :D

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Not yet, had the question before.

See the use, have not had the time to implement something like that.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Alright all upcoming PFS and SFS content was added.

I do have a request for those that keep asking if they can help: I do not always notice all the new content. Mainly free RPG day, quests, modules, sometimes APs that get sanctioned are not always on my radar. Please post here if something is not in the database and I will add it as soon as possible.

Thanks peeps!

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Added both without adding details yet. You can report on em, will fill em up properly when I have time tomorrow.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I have added it. :) Thanks for pointing that out.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

It has come to my attention that there is currently a bug affecting adventure path, quest and module filtering on the search page. I am on it, but it might take a little while to fix!

Thanks for reporting!

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

That is why it is a toggle, that is apparantly malfunctioning. I'll see if I can fix it.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I don't filter them out by default, it always includes them by default (or at least it should).

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

- Added up to and including scenario 9 for Starfinder.

Going to be adding the Starfinder tag to characters and add the Starfinder factions as options for that soon as well.

@Ricardo: NP, sorry. :)
@SanderJK: Actually not heard that one before I think. The evergreen toggle is not really working properly anyway, so I can keep this in mind when I fix it to make sure it can do what you are asking. Good idea!

Best wishes for 2018 peeps!

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

@Magabeus: no probs! Just don't have as much time to integrate new features lately.

@Ricardo: Hm, not directly. You could, however, just make the GM a player and see... though no that also doesn't add up. Uhm 'no' is the official answer. :) Sorry.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Some content was added again.

There was also a bit of downtime due to the hosting having a problem. This downtime was at max 2 hours and the tracker is fully back up and running.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

@majuba & HMM: It has never worked yet, but I got a code update from the javascripter. I would need to code the import part of it. It is on my list.

@MikeKn: Claim to Salvation is in there, it is a multitable though. So in the search page you need to check 'include multitable specials' :) As for Into the Unknown, I'll toggle that to Evergreen in a day or two, thanks for that. :)

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Just a small update. All new content was added a while ago. If you see anything missing please post or contact me in PM (or email).

I've been really busy, but I intend to code some new features and optimizations in the tracker in a month or so.

Carry on! :)

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Yeah this is not planned. I am on it. Server is just fine, so it has to be something else. Will keep posted.

My host did have some maintenance, looking into it.

EDIT: A reboot did it. Still going to look into why it was not working properly, but for now it should be working. Let me know if anything is wrong though.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Alright... so that was totally my bad. I... added the scenarios to a old (very old) database copy. I apparantly never checked to see if they worked on the live site.

They should now be available for reporting and searching!

Thanks Karpana.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Odd I did add them. They must not have the correct flag set. I will look into it, gonna try to have that fixed today.

Scarab Sages **** Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Aight! Heroes for Highdelve added, season 9 options added, first four scenarios added for season 9 (beware: you need to check multitable specials to see the special in the search page).

The bug with author names is quite a nasty one and I am trying to fix it still.

Also about to introduce a option on the filters that selects 'pre-gen' scenarios only.
