Another note: Looking at doing a server reboot/maintenance sometime soonish.  In the range of 5 to 30 minutes of downtime for everything with a the-elite.net URL.  It just doesn't seem worth it to be set up for 100% uptime, etc. for this site and I don't think I'll be in too much trouble for taking it down for a few minutes.

This is somewhat related to the operational incident you may have noticed a few weeks ago where the site was down for around 30 minutes (unplanned). We've had some really great uptime stats in the last 3 years though.  We'll get a little specs bump, too.

Let me know if there are any particularly BAD times I should avoid doing it at, like when an event or something might be happening.

The Related Links are incredibly outdated, with six of the nine links being dead or redirects. Both links to the WR DB can be replaced by http://rarewrs.free.fr/. Links to the LTK/DLTK Division are dead and can be removed. Link to the Turbo division is dead as well, appearantly it was removed from the site after not having any updates for 5+ years.
Links that could be added in their place: The Elite twitch team and Discord for obvious reasons, speedrun.com for speedrunning in general.

On the Rare Leaders page, it still says "Records for Duel A/SA are not counted." when it shoud say "Records for Duel are not counted." now.

On the LTK rankings, it says Enemy Health for LTK "can be set to the minimum" when it should say "must be set to the minimum" or "is set to minimum". Applies to the PD LTK rankings as well.

For the leaders on a leaderboard, it should not cut off the eleventh person if there are only eleven people on that leaderboard. Having the "...and 1 more" button serves no purpose, since no vertical space is saved, but you need an additional click to reveal the eleventh person. This phenomenon currently occurs on Bunker 1 and easily is the most relevant issue on this list.

Thanks for posting! And welcome to the site.

These all sound great.  If you happen to be interested in fixing any of these yourself, you're definitely invited to do so.  There is a yearly flair award for everyone who makes contributions to the code on the site.

To get started, you could open separate Issues on our GitLab page for each of these, or just submit Merge Requests if you think you can fix them yourself.  The GitLab page is located here https://gitlab.com/the-elite-net/rankings but you will need to let me know your account name on the site so I can add you to the project first.  I can talk you through anything you want to do and provide feedback and assistance.

If you're not interested in any of that GitLab stuff or making the changes yourself, that's totally fine, too. I'll file these four issues myself if no one else has done so within the next day or two. (Some people like to get credit or points for notes and I don't want to just steal your thunder.)

the /GE folder

Okay, turns out most of this content APPEARS to have been moved to /classic/rankings/ge, but there's a bit of a problem. The links are all going to be broken and we can't do a straightforward redirect either.  All the content in this folder seems to have been renamed, moved, shuffled around.

I did find "Derek Clark's Informational Records Site" now, though:

https://the-elite.net/classic/rankings/ge/world-records/wr-site/

Tons of links here seem to be broken. Due to the note above, I can't just set redirects either. Someone's going to have to go through the whole page and fix every link.  This is something I would do, like I did for some other parts of the old content, but it will only be a "whenever I feel like it" project and there would be no expected date of completion.

If someone else wanted to work on fixing that page, or anything else in /classic, I will definitely get you set up with access to help out.

According to Ng, the 2007 version of the Turbo page may very well be the latest update.

Link to the Turbo division is dead as well, appearantly it was removed from the site after not having any updates for 5+ years.

I would try to restore these but the site archive Derek sent me several years ago does not have the /GE folder. I already asked Ng and Thiradell if they have any backups from the old the-elite.net server (before I was managing it).  Maybe someone else here has this folder?

Here's one page about Turbo that's buried in the /classic stuff:

https://the-elite.net/classic/rankings/ge/turbo/2007/elite.htm

There's actually quite a lot of old content in /classic but directory browsing will remain disabled until someone goes through it all and cleans up broken links, etc.

It's because leaderboards are intended to be a top 10 for each level, and anyone extra (due to ties) gets "and X more"'d. It looks a bit silly with 11 players, but I think it's a good design choice since it gives a better intuitive idea of what leaderboards are when there are more than 10 players on them.

Agreed with the rest.

Some minor issues that are easy to fix but most of them are long overdue.
