- Updated the colors of the different ratings. Green = 'Great', Blue = 'Good', Grey = '(Low/Average)', Red = 'Bad'.
- Movies with less than 5 ratings show up in grey and should be taken with a grain of salt.

This can be useful when requesting edits or link battles. All items with a profile will have this button, including Forum posts and Gallery items.

Everyone keep in mind that the stats of many profiles as of now are inaccurate thanks to what just happened. When you vote on battles don't look at the score, just vote for who would actually win.

Hopefully, this is what people have actually been doing even before this problem because there were still plenty of stats that weren't all that acurate even before and still aren't. Not to mention, it is possible that very powerful character could be beaten by another character that doesn't seem that powerful overall but just happens to possess the one power that is perfect to counter and beat that particular opponent. So hopefully people were always looking at more than just the stats values to determine a winner. They can absolutely be helpful but shouldn't be the only thing that's considered in a battle vote.

@Galactus I'd also like to advocate and give mods like me access to any profile on the database. I'm advocating for this because we would keep adding in and fixing stats and it would be helpful because we'd have more work to do and we don't have to keep reaching out to you or the heralds about the stats. I love being accurate and want to be accurate on this site, and it would be fair if I and the other mods can be given an oppurtunity to do this, that way we can finish things faster. Especially now since a lot of profiles now are f*cked up.

I have a right to feel impatient it's a normal feeling people have, especially now since we lost a lot of data and fell behind as a result of this. I'm here to be accurate and make sure this site is resourceful, that's actually a fun part of it just so people can learn how powerful a character is and what their powers are. I'm being calm and doing my job as a Mod.

Removed some powers and moved the characters to the (already existing) powers.
Air Control -> Wind Control
Lava Manipulation -> Magma manip
Absolute Condition -> Omnipotence

Absorption -> Deleted
You need to add the specific 'Absorption' power to the characters.

Heal -> Vitakinesis
Timeframe Control -> Bullet Time
Perception Manipulation -> Illusions

These changes also have an effect on the Class, since some characters had both powers.

Removed: Enhanced Senses (It was too general, and we have the separate powers anyways)

*Important update*
I've added something called 'Vibe' to the User Dashboard. This shows what 'vibe' you give off, how your presence is on the website.
This is calculated from the comments. Including; the amount of (up/down)votes you give, the amount of (up/down)votes you get, the amount of comments you make and the amount of 'flags' you get.
It's calculated pretty positively, taking into account the 'voting' topics. Being flagged will count significantly.
Vibe works exponentially, the higher it is, the faster it will grow.

Overall this should be a good way to see if someone is positive in nature.

* Still in beta, I might change some numbers in the near future.

In the last few days I've been optimising the database and removing some redundant data. In total I deleted over 1GB of database storage. Although maintaining websites/databases can be annoying some times, it also has plenty of satisfying moments. Removing over 50% of the database footprint without it messing with the website functionality is great.

That would be perfect! That's all I'd need to see anyway. Just good to know who's been deleted so they possibly don't get requested again and also gives context as to whether a character you are thinking of requesting might fit into some of the reasons others got deleted. In those cases, might not want to request them in the first place then. Just a nice reference. Thank you!

@Galactus, what exactly does "Doesn't fit SHDb" mean? Is that just when a character isn't associated with a publisher and/or universe and we can't determine which one they belong in or it doesn't yet exist in the database? Is that a correct assumption or is there something else that means?

*Update*
Regarding the downvote option for comments.

Some topics, some of mine included, use the voting system as a poll. So I've added a 'Allow downvoting on comments'-option for forum topics.
It's turned off by default. For already created topics, you can use the (tiny) pencil icon to edit your topic and switch on this option.

I find some movie/series characters without universe and made universe for them, can you add their movies too?
Ava
Haywire
Total Recall
Anna
Peppermint

Do you have plan to add option to request movies?

I'll add them tonight.
I think it's best to do the request through a forum topic. To make sure we don't get movies in here that don't belong.

*Update*
Made some progress on the Movie section;
- Movies are now part of a Universe. (Some not yet, since the Universe doesn't exist on SHDb yet. Feel free to add it)
- Movies can be part of multiple Universes, Like the new Dr. Strange movie and Spidey No Way Home.
- Editors (and up) can now add characters to the movies (where a universe is selected; with the 'person +'-icon )
- The connected Universes work as a filter when adding characters. No need to sift through 40 Spider-Men.
- The connected movies will show up on the Character Profile 'Movie'-tab.
- Added two movies;
-- Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (2022)
-- Split (2016)

*Update*
Changed how the Top X characters on the homepage are shown.
- The list is generated once an hour, instead of realtime.
- It's generated from the last 7 days, instead of the previous 14. Which should make it change more often.

The Top X list gets its data from the Pageviews table. Which grows incredibly fast, as you can imagine (now at around 10 million records). It took almost 9 seconds each time to generate the top x list and add all information of that character. (Probably also due to lack of knowledge to make it faster. 😬)
But, updating the list hourly is more than enough. So, it now takes about 140 seconds a day compared to the over 140 minutes/day (based on all the pageviews).

Saving some more precious server time.

Did some cleaning up on the forums.
- Locked topics will be hidden from the topic list after 7 days. They are not deleted, so you can still read them if you have a link (search, fave, or a comment, etc)
- Topics without any comment will be hidden after 1 month. Again, not deleted.
- Fixed the order of the topics, it was a bit weird.

These changes also improve the load times a bit.

*Update*
- Changed the Top 3 battles list on character profile pages. It's now based on the vote count for that character (or team with that character) instead of the total votes for the battle.
- As above, but for the Profile Battles page.

Creating the top list this way is 8-10x faster, saving some server time.

You can (read: should) now login with your e-mail address. In the near future you won't be able to login with your username anymore.


1. I want to allow for you to be able to change your username. (With limits, but I haven't defined them yet).
2. Some database related reasons you're not interested in.

If, for some reason, you can't remember what e-mail address you've used, I've added it to your main profile page (only you can see it).

So, for future compatibility, make a habit of logging in with your e-mail address from now on.

*Spring Cleaning*
I've been cleaning up the database the last few days. Here's a summary of the amount of records I've deleted;

Users 7,826
Login 10,482
Users settings 58
Battles Votes 60,446
Comments 64,460
Comments (History) 6,160
Comments (Votes) 7,015
Forum Topics 225
Favourites 2,307
Characters 9
- Stats 429
- Stats - Powers 10,530
- Info 806
Requests 381
- Votes 99

So, over 170,000 records were removed. Although still a small percentage of the total of records, it still helps (a bit).

Some accounts set for deletion (by Heralds an me) haven't been removed yet (including all connected data). That's 84 accounts that I want to check a bit more specific before deleting, since there's 'no' way back.

You might not care about the statistics of running a website like this, but some might. I always try to optimise the website wherever I can. Every small bit of optimisation helps.

Removed the 1M membership. Doubled the OC count for the annual 1K and 1B memberships, also lower them one $1,-.
Added the 1T Membership for $6.-/month or $48 annually (33% discount) including 48 OC slots.

Thinking about adding a lifetime membership; $86.- once, never have ads, and unlimited OCs. Like to know your option on that.

This is more an update for me than for you, but you can also benefit.
All purchases are now stored in the database per purchase, rather than just added up. So I can now see what you've purchased from your profile page.
This will also allow me to add any new purchases from within the interface, so I can add it faster, no more database fiddling (although it is still manual).

And I want to thank everyone who've purchased either a membership, OC slots or donated! I can't stress enough how much I appreciate it you helping keep the website running!

- Deleted unactivated accounts older than 2 years. About 35% of the account data.
- Optimised a few database tables.
-- Feed page and Battle (overview) page are still a bit on the slow side.
-- I have to change how comments are build up, it's just too slow.

(I flooded the system memory for a few minutes, sorry about that.)

Since it's too time-consuming to calculate it real-time for each comment, I've created a new db-table to store the class. I'm working on getting this updated every x-minutes. For now it updates whenever someone visits your user-profile page.

So, after @Ezio approved your uStats, you only have to click the Load-button and hit Save. No need to redo all the stats. The ultimate timesaver!

If people didn't use it for copyrighted material all the time and read the rules on OCs, this wouldn't have to be necessary.

Thee website was facing some issues earlier for a few hours.
The database had grown too large. We moved the database back to its default location, which has plenty of room, but is a bit slower.

I've located the main culprit and will be deleting a lot of redundant records next few days.

Sorry for the downtime.

Also added 'Featured' battles to the feed page yesterday as an experiment. If people like it, I will keep it.
I'll put battles on the featured list that I find personally interesting or fun. I'll swap them out whenever I see a new fun battle.

Added the 'Version'-field for characters on the edit page.
This is where the version info should be entered. These are things that appear in between parenthesis (...) and isn't universe info.
Some examples; Worthy, Force Ghost, Extremis Armor, etc.

If you're done editing a character shouldn't have anything between () anymore, except a universe that isn't in the db yet. Before finishing the edit, please request the universe and let me know so I can upvote it and you can select the right universe.

On the request page I've added a 'Version Name' field for characters. This is for what you normally add between (...) as a suffix.
So, we shouldn't have anything in parentheses anymore from now on. I will convert all existing characters to this format.

Old situation:
name: Iron Man (Hulkbuster) (MCU)

New situation:
name: Iron Man
versionname: Hulkbuster
verse: MCU

I've already converted the profile pages and search to use the new format. The rest will follow this weekend.

So, I messed something up. I thought I would fix it by importing a backup. But that messed up other things again, irreversible.

Long story short; all battles, battle variations, comments and collections of the last two days are gone. I can't turn it back.

Note to self; never do the deleting at the end of the day.

Added Power Scores for all 'new' powers added in the last few weeks (or months even).
They might not be ideal yet, but they add at least a minimum of what I think they should add.

I will be adding the scores to the Power profile page. And I'm also thinking of a way for you to have a say in how many points a Power should add. This will be less influential than just adding a score and calculating the average.
If you have any suggestion, please let me know in the suggestions topic.

You can select Species and Type now on the character profile edit (bio) page.

I intent to make it multi-select, but I was taking too long figuring out the right way to do the interface for it. So, for now, you can select one species and one type. Already an upgrade from the previous selections.

If you're not sure how it works, or what the difference is between Species and Type, just edit a character and open up the Type option. That should clear things up right away, I think.

Requests can now be voted on by regular users. Your account needs to be at least 30 days old to vote, though.
Voting will earn you points (either up or down vote).

Hopefully we can reduce the request list a bit this way.

IMPORTANT!
Please search the website before requesting and voting. Try a slightly different spelling, or search partial names (like 'Parker' instead of 'Peter Parker). We don't want duplicate entries.
Also make sure that the item you request and vote on actually needs to be on this website. If you're not sure about that, please ask here first: https://www.superherodb.com/requesting-new-characters-and-items/100-4678/

How many votes does it take for something to be added to the db (or removed from the list)?
It's not based on the number of votes, but by a score. Each role adds/subtracts a certain amount of points. If 90 points is reached, the item will be added to the db. And with -90 it will be removed from the list.
Normal user: 20 pnts
Editor: 30 pnts
Moderator: 100 pnts

So, without any downvotes is takes 5, 3 and 1 vote respectively.
Hope this all makes sense.

There were some issues the last few days concerning the speed of the website and throwing errors (max user connections).
I've cleaned up de database yesterday and fixed some other speed related issues. The feed page should load a bit faster, might not be very noticeable. And the homepage is 5-10x faster now. (Going from the Admin page to the homepage was annoying, not anymore).

Hopefully these changes have fixed the error issue. It's working a lot better till now, but weekends are always less busy.

@Galactus, I just have one thing to say, now due to we can add more powers to the nigh-omnipotent beings so they easily pass the omnipotent beings in billions, so I think that when you put the power '' omnipotence '' I think that 1000b or more should be added to the character.

You should be able to edit character's bio, stats and image on the Admin page.
The history, powers and equipment edit pages still need to be converted, but can still be edited through the older pages (Abbs > My Edits)

The conditions of editing are still the same. You can edit if it's your OC or on your edit list.
If you're an editor you can add all characters that aren't locked to your edit list. Non-Editors can only add characters you suggested (and are approved).

I just updated the 'bio' page. A small new feature on that page is that you're able to add the height and weight in more detail.

I've also added an 'Admin' page (found under your abbs, for now) from which you can edit your OCs or items on your edit-list. The History, Equipment and Powers pages will be updated very soon.

Eventually the Abbs page will be removed and be replaced by the Admin page.

DarkProdigy is the only one with this role. To keep it all consistent he's the only one to edit these scores right now. (And me of course).

That was a frustrating hour or so.
I was trying to delete some redundant pageview data (±30 million records) , but that crashed the whole database. After chatting with the support guy it got resolved, after an extra reboot.
It clears up a lot of space and shouldn't be an issue for the next few years.

*IMPORTANT Update*
Everyone can now edit the characters that they've requested (and were approved).

For those who are new to editing;
- Go to the profile of a character you can edit.
- Click on the (purple) Edit in the Profile-menu
- Click 'Add to Edit'

- Go to Abbs (User Menu)
- Click 'My Edits'
- Click the character you want to edit.

This sounds like a lot of steps (and will be made easier), but you'll get the hang of it real quick.
You can have a maximum of 3 characters in your edit list. When done editing, click the 'remove'-button on the 'My Edits'-page.

Have fun! And thanks for contributing!

There was a bug that saved duplicate entries. That would cause all stats turn into 0 when saving, you might have encountered it.
This has been fixed, but it's possible that you've lost the selected Super Powers.

To make it easier for everyone to check, I'll make a 'My uStats'-page that lists all your uStats. It will be up in about an hour or so.

Who said the user score is 'so' important?
It helps people do things on the website. People like to be awarded for things. That's what the score is for. To see how much you've contributed to the website.

I won't go into the specifics of the calculation right now, but the main idea is; the more effort it takes to do something, the more points you get.
Commenting won't get you points, though. So no need to spam.
