Clan Ranks 'n' stuff (in General)

Colonel Custard [The Knighthood] July 24 2008 3:06 PM EDT

I noticed that my clan was in 11th place before the hour changed, and that we should move up to 9th next hour. I still only got 13.4% bonus once I started fighting after 3 o'clock, though. I looked at the clan stats page, and it said:
"Clan rankings will be recomputed in -1 minutes."

Clearly, though, they weren't. It's fixed by now, but why the couple-of-minutes delay?

Windows Vista?

God don't get me started on vista. My new laptop that I got. I boot it up, open a folder in windows explorer, and windows explorer crashes & restarts repeatedly. I mean come on if you're going to ship software make sure it works right out of the box.

In relevance to clans I have no idea where you checked that stat so this post is completely irrelevant.

However, as a side-note I think something has to be done about clan rewards. Blue Army has a bounty on it, and we barely notice. Even at 100 points you get a 10 percent bonus... so why bother getting number one.

Okay, I take it back that wasn't Vista's fault only it was Windows Live Messenger's fault combine with Vista's fault, but what does it matter it's all still Microsoft. Windows Live Messenger was able to corrupt a file transfer AND Vista couldn't understand what went wrong. Great huh?

But uhm so much for my complaint about shipping bad software out of the box, guess that was wrong, but it still could have handled it better I'd hope, at the very least an error message saying 'THERE'S A CORRUPT FILE THERE'; instead of 'Let's restart windows explorer repeatedly until the problem fixes itself'.

Again sorry to be completely off topic, but I just had to write it down, I've been struggling with this/avoiding solving this for a week. It's hard to trace the problem down to a corrupt file when the file is sitting on your desktop.

Semi-on topic: I figured out what page you were talking about, but uhm small delay, no big deal right?

Colonel, it has got to do with the regen not being done at 00/20/40, but a few minutes later. Those pages get refreshed a bit later too.

I realize that it doesn't happen at 00/20/40 all the time, but most of the time, the "will be recomputed in x minutes" figure is accurate in my experience. However, -1 minutes is a completely incorrect figure, since they hadn't been recomputed a minute before that. I'm kinda wondering how it got to the point where it displayed a negative number for how many minutes in the future something would happen that hadn't happened yet.
