With what frequency are shards polled by ServUO, dmurphy?
Shards are polled on a per request basis. Everytime a shard info is looked at it will update so long as 5 minutes has elapsed since the last update. So the minimum would be 5 minutes but could be much more. Using the export function counts as checking the cache time and if it has been longer than 5 minutes it will update.

Hey guys,

So I have been working a little more on the shardlist, I have created a launcher that, in time will become a replacement for UOGateway and ConnectUO.

Here is a little video showing the current progress:

Great work!

Will the shard poller ever be scheduled so that we'll be able to generate graphs of player population over time?
Historical stats will be a feature of the shardlist, you will be able to view graphs here on ServUO or export the stats as a json array or xml file to do your own parsing on your own site.

ServUO Launcher changelog:
  • Connect the app to your forum account. Once the app is launched you will have to connect the app to your forum account in order to vote. This will save a generated machine ID to your account on ServUO, votes will be tied to this machineID, this is a way to combat vote cheats. You will still be able to launch shards without logging in.
  • Sync your favorites between the site and the app. When you favorite a shard you will not need to visit servuo to launch it, you can just right click the taskbar icon and launch it directly.
  • Recent shards. Saves the last 10 shards launched, accessed by right clicking the taskbar icon.

Just a question about the shardlist, will there be any pages to it?
Or will it be dynamic loadings like duckduckgo.com searching or facebook scroll down through old posts?

Right now there are no pages, but if we get tons of shards signing up it will probably be the facebook / duckduckgo approach where it loads more as you scroll down.

Shardlist changelog:
  • To make it fairer for all shards and to give every shard equal advertising the shardlist is now sorted randomly by default.
  • If users wish to sort the list by certain criteria then they can change the sorting options on the right of the page.

Love the new look dmurphy! And the shard listing is nice. I think the random sort is a great idea :)
