    I'm working on the updates right now, I'll be back to you asap

    one thing is certain, listing points one by one as chesser did it's simply impossible and, IMO, not worth the hassle; for the moment being I'll focus on the counting and the new medals, then we will see

    edit: there's another issue .. there's a limit of 100k characters for reply; the actual leaderboard is already close to that, so no way we could keep with that procedure; my actual idea: for the moment being I'll keep the listing as done by chesser, and will upload the files Akar and KA provided to the TWC download and link them at the bottom of the leaderboard page; then I'll add manually the points to each single player (I'll just record them, ie: Conan the Barbarian has 22 points listed, and now earned 6 more, so I'll just add a line below the listed points like this - "updated 06/05, plus 6 points") and update as well their contentbox with the total amount

    then for what concerns counting points for the single games I'll think on how to proceed

    eventually I managed to update the leaderboard without breaking the whole format..
    However, here are the latest medals updates:

    General Brewster - Eye of Knowledge + 50 rep
    Paleologos - Gold Medal + 20 rep
    Akar - Gold Medal + 20 + 10 rep (for the Silver)
    John Doe - Silver + 10 rep
    lolIsuck - Silver +10 rep
    Morticia Iunia Bruti - Bronze + 5 rep

    A special mention to Brew, for being the first ever to hit the top of top, and to Akar, for doing double up (from Bronze to Gold); I'll be giving out medals and rep shortly.

    give me now some time to think on how to proceed for the future

    Would doing the recording/tallying on a Google Docs (or similar) spreadsheet work? You could restrict edit access to You/Akar/KA - but also link to it for anyone to view the live status (instead of periodically re-uploading the base files to the download section)

    Many thanks to everyone involved.
    Perhaps, when you find the time you can also fix my position in the score board.

    & Commentary
    Seems this would be the appropriate place for us to post congratulating others on their ascension and to thank you and others for their hard work no? If you think that commentary should only ever be posted in the OTHER commentary thread (remember, this is technically a commentary thread too) you should probably either remove the "& commentary" part from the title or lock the thread. In my opinion everything that has been posted on this last page is entirely appropriate for this thread but obviously you disagree.

    I deleted 3 posts which had nothing to do with that

    However, sad news:

    due to RL issues chesser2538 has to resign from his duties at the TGC competition, which means that that position is now vacant. If any of you can suggest me any name for evaluation for that job, I'll be grateful

    Let's go by steps:

    Master Guesser - Awarded for earning sixty points in one single game of those included in the TGC Competition. Awarded members will also receive 50 rep points.
    most of you play in at the least 3 games, someone even more, and only four of you have 60 or more points, with Brew being the only one who's far above (162 points, damn man you are too good at these games ). So doing the counting now doesn't make much sense, I'd say that the fastest way to do that is that you resort on your own memory, or: any of you that feels that they are close or above 60 points in one single game, just tell me so and I'll be double checking the results. Honestly I don't think anyone is there yet, still worth to check.

    I've identified a couple of names for possible replacement of chesser, but I won't move on with approaching them before next week; if I'll manage to enslave convince one to join me in the GS, then I should be able to train them so that around 10th of June we can make another update; otherwise if they'll flee my trap, I'll resort again on your help, lads

    I believe Brew has been keeping track of his, actually. He told me he was close to 60 points on one of them. He informed me he's going to be away for a week so won't be able to double check with him for a bit.
