The only extra task right now is editing the Super Power scores.
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).

Your role weighs less in the calculation. It gives you less benefit.

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!

Updated the uStats.
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.

- Deleted a bunch of characters yesterday. People still create copyrighted OCs and it's getting really tiring to have to keep removing them. Just stop it already or it's going to be a '1 strike, you're out'-system. Out of creating OCs, that is.

I've added a Notification tab to your user page. This will show all direct replies on your comments and shows dm messages since the last time you've logged out.
At this point it's in a pretty basic form, but it will have more features in the future. This is the first step in the right direction when it comes to notifications.

@Ezio: that's what I'm wondering.

@Galactus: why is the user score so important?
Galactus
Galactus 8 mo 24 d
SHDB v4.1 - Updates

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.

@Dark_Wing; By doing things, like; create and vote battles, request new items (characters, objects, locations), upload images, etc.
@Bane333: Go to your main profile page, it shows '33K'. That's your current User Class.
