I have my MUD/site listed on TMS, and I was wondering how would I find the link to vote for it? Or how does it even increase in rank? Thanks.

I am not sure where you get the TMS icon from (I think there are a few you can choose from) - if you even want to use their icon ... but the link looks like this:


http://www.topmudsites.com/cgi-bin/t....cgi?id=xxxxxx

where "xxxxxx" is your TMS login ID. For example, mine reads:

http://www.topmudsites.com/cgi-bin/t...cgi?id=lanthum

Because lanthum is my TMS id. Remember, this is the TMS id you used to add your mud to the DB. Some people use a different id to post with. I hope this helps.

Thanks, but how can I be sure that it is correct? I mean, even if I enter any random letters for the TMS id that does not exist, it'll still say it is voting.

You can get the coding and a selection of voting banners by clicking on Edit your Site (http://www.topmudsites.com/cgi-bin/t...unts.cgi?login) and then choosing Display Link Syntax from the dropdown.

Ah okay thanks. And is there anyway to check the listings rank?

Open up the page and do a "find" for it with your browser. There's only 5 pages But that only works if you're in the top 100.

Which brings up another question I guess I should ask elsewhere ... but this quote made me think of it.

Synozeer, is it ever going to be possible again to where we can search for our webpage and see it's current vote count/status? I remember a LONG time ago this being possible - then after a site crash it wasn't due to an old backup or something like that. But I was wondering if you ever found a way to do it again - or if it would ever be possible again.

Thanks.

After the crash, the database got corrupted in a strange way, and the search function stop working correctly. I still don't think it'll work, but I can always give it another test behind the scenes.

Also, I *think* that you can go to the same Edit your Site link, choose Display Stats from the dropdown and see what place your site is in on the ranking list.

Oh yes, that displays the stats. Thanks. Although, how exactly does Hits In/Out raise? The vote link that was said in this topic would raise one of them right? How would the other raise if it cannot be found since its not on the top 100?

Hits in goes up when someone clicks on the voting graphic you place on your site. That's the stat that is used to rank. Hits out is just informational, and will only go up when someone visits your site from TMS. That means that if you're not in the top 100, that won't go up.

Ah okay thanks. One last question, how often does it update? Every hit? Or a certain time interval?

Every ten minutes for the top 100. If you go to the main page at the bottom it says:
Last Updated: 4-28-05 5:14am
Next Update: 4-28-05 5:24am

I use to think my votes weren't being counted
