10th Anniversary!

It's hard to believe, but we started AchStats a full decade ago! Now ten years later we're still alive and kicking! In terms of a special update, this was already deployed last week for more performance facing the huge amount of newly added profiles.Speaking of new profiles, it is still going on: Just another ~30,000 additions in the last two days totaling in ~984k profiles! Those are just not immediately crawled or the update queue is going to explode again. So the journey of AchStats continues and some day we might release version 2.0 as a complete overhaul. Maybe for the 20th anniversary? Stay healthy and keep on achievement hunting!

Granted, the site was never the fastest but in the recent days it really slowed down and was barely usable. So I was trying to figure the reason out and noticed a really big influx of newly added profiles. Why? I have no idea, but just to give you a number:At the beginning of this year we tracked ~657k profiles. At the end of January we counted ~718k profiles. After two more weeks the number climbed up to ~822k! More than 100,000 profiles have been added in under two weeks! That's kinda insane compared to the usual growth.We're currently at ~837k profiles, that means 180,000 new profiles in this year only. To put it in another perspective: It took from August 2019 to 2022 to grow for the same number of new profiles.ANYWAY, I had to do something, so I sat down and implemented a persistent cache for best achievements of each profile. This was the bottleneck and had to be solved. Et voilĂ , it is now active and speeds up the overview, global rankings and friend rankings! Consider this as an early anniversary gift! Go try it out!! Until next week!

By now you can tell it did work, so we can fully focus on the more fun things: Halloween!The calendar is PACKED with date specific achievements and your profile is FULL TO THE BRIM with upcoming cheevos. All newly added seasonal achievements are maintained, so take a look and don't miss them! Good hunting and Happy Halloween!

Database doesn't want to play

Remember the inconsistencies after the last restore? Turns out they are technical not possible but still exist and while trying to fix them the database did not liked that at all. Last week we had no time whatsoever to take care about it. We are now looking into it. More updates soon. Thanks for your understanding.

Database alive

Holy moly, the import took 3 weeks to finish! After that, the most recent data salvaged from the crashed database was applied and we're finally back.However, there are some inconsistencies, so I needed to rebuild a table manually and I'm still checking on the overall data integrity. For example, you have unlocks from a game you don't own - I'm currently working on that.But anyway, the site is at your service again. Enjoy!

Database crashed

Update on the database issues: That was a major blow, far beyond some corruption. We actually needed to wipe everything and reinstall MySQL, because it was no longer operational. Before that, we could back up almost all the data except three bigger tables.Right now we're importing the latest backup (dated 2 days before the crash) and once it's done, we are updating it with the stuff we could save from the crashed state. The actual data loss should be very minor.Expect some more days of downtime, your Quake achievements have to wait a bit longer. ;)
