    Hi donatreides:

    The original ranking thought process was as follows, and keep in mind that it worked behind the scenes as only referees created variations so for us it was easily understood...

    "Descending" meant that the scores would be displayed in descending order...obviously highest to lowest for points, and slowest-to-fastest for time. Since we already knew what that meant there was no need for further FYI text, but as the new variation tool which may soon be created is released, gamers submitting ideas will need to be 100% sure so additional text will surely be included.

    "Ascending" is the exact opposite...for points lower was better (think golf scores), while for time-based challenges faster was better (think your average racing-based title)

    I'm to blame for the term "Integer"...this was going back to the structure and naming convention of the original database so I suppose the term stuck. "Decimal" is more appropriate for sure.

    It is time to remind everyone that this is the NEW ERA of Twin Galaxies.

    THAT MEANS THAT EVERYONE IS GETTING A CLEAN AND FRESH OPPORTUNITY HERE. EVERYONE.

    Twin Galaxies does not care what he/she/you said/did/didn't do in the past. It only cares about what he/she/you said/did/didn't do NOW in this NEW ERA.

    All of these historical accusations, finger pointing, cherry picking, reshaping, totally accurate/totally inaccurate, age-old battles that have cumulatively dragged the entire community down and limited opportunity for everyone are not welcome here. Please keep that kind of discussion to other websites.

    This thread has been cleansed. This sort of interaction will not be allowed to live here. It is not the same old Twin Galaxies. It will never be.

    Twin Galaxies is judging by what people do HERE. NOW. Not by the past.

    The Twin Galaxies community past is very complicated, with many perspectives. While there will never be agreement on the details of behavior and decisions from the past, we can all agree that many people have been hurt, dreams have not been realized and that the overall community has historically suffered.

    That negative parts of the past are not welcome here. It is where it belongs - IN THE PAST.

    This is the NEW ERA. This is the NEW TG.

    Users that continue to attempt to bring up old negative history for the sole purpose of discrediting, hurting, or harassing others will get a warning and then get banned on a second violation. Twin Galaxies is done with this nonsense. It is time to move forward positively. Either get with this idea and support it, or leave the site.

    Agreed, and thanks, Jace !!

    With so many incarnations of the TG forum, more than a hundred thousand replies easily, spanning almost 20 years, a complete reboot is the way to go...the "New TG" as you named it.
