Wow, great and OK :)
Firstly I appreciate the very positive responses, and you have given me food for thought.
A little more on what I had been turning over in my mind.
Currently I pick up the Milestones posted into Tanks original thread and pop then into the Millionaires Club sticky.
I was looking for a little automation and improvement in the accuracy, not depending on my eyesight. Currently my thinking was to (as I had mentioned) prune the results to include only Active Milestones. However reading the comments, I can understand the reasons behind the comments and I will look to change what I'm trying to do.
As we have had over 12k members contribute in the past, and almost 800 current contributors, to keep all Inactive as well as Active users, then I suspect that we will need to keep close to the original format, in that I only add Milestones for users who post up at least once in Tanks original thread - to keep the spreadsheet to a manageable size and make it easy on members to check on the progress of themselves and others.
In regards to XZ's ideas, they seem like a good idea, but tbo may be a few steps to far for my abilities (most of this will not be my own work as it is :)) Therefore I intend firstly to improve the current process and when we are happy that the Milestone list meets our needs I'll look into those
I specifically like the idea of adding the top 100 producers.
With the other ideas, I'm not sure but suspect that to add the memorial and notable mentions might need a sub forum to hold, but AB would know more about that than me I guess?
AB's links to the "Free DC stats system, also seems sound, not sure how much work would be needed to set it all up and if we could have different contributors across EVGA DC to update there own "bits"
All in all, you have provided me with lots of good stuff to think about and modify my original idea :)
It would look a little like this:
milestone Milestone Status Display Name 24/06/2012
400-600 Million active mmillion 574,734,736
300-400 Million active barbarossa (barbarossa17)
100-150 Million active desktopgeek 103,308,654
MrAsh (Mr_Ash) 131,034,788
Just a quick update :)
The full stats for the Folding Team are also available on the link posted by AB fantastic :)
just look to the right and select non Boinc and then Folding - scroll down a bit and the full team stats are there (as also they are in the Extreme Overclockers stats published by Jason over there - great guy) http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=team&proj=fah&team=111065
As you can see from the above, I'm currently only picking up "recent" contributions - more work to go there I suspect :)
