    HEY you know what would be cool

    instead of people having their best or mostrecentasoflasttimetheycheckeditandupdated ladder ratings in their signatures, if we could find a way to hook this up to postbits somehow so it could be automated?

    i just think the integration of sim and community would be cool esp now that we have our own sim in the works and lots of people seem to enjoy keeping track of this stuff so

    ps is this even at all feasible

    It was until we drove Cathy insane and she quit.

    I think people want their ladder peak in their sig, not their current ladder ranking.

    It could be interactive; i.e. the sim checks the script in the sig to see which number is higher and only replaces it if it would be a larger peak.

    I think the easier way would simply to be store each user's peak...

    Haven't you figured out yet that aesoft is just a Cathy alt?

    Anyway, I actually agree with az that this could be kinda cool if it could be worked out.

    Point of fact: ratings--but not rankings--are stored in a sql database (I assume the PO server recalculates rankings every time you pull up the list).

    That being said, if anyone figures out a way to make this work, I'd be more than happy to implement it.

    Damn PL was a pretty sweet sim....

    Anyway yeah that would be a neat addition -- but I must disagree with peaks being recorded. It should be a current standing of who is #1 and such.

    this could also provide incentive for people to ladder again with the removal of suspect testing!

    It could be used as a postbit field that you fill in, like with Location/Custom Titles, although then it would most likely have to be restricted to one specific peak, but at least you'd get to choose what goes there. Although if feasible, the suggestion in the op is definitely superior to this.
