I have finished up work and testing on version 1.2 of the CensusPlus UI mod. Here is a list of changes:

<p><b>1.2</b><br>
<ul>
<li>Fixed a bug with a current census that is paused becoming unpaused when you close certain windows.</li>
<li>Added a /censusverbose command that will toggle the CensusPlus messages on/off.</li>
<li>Modified the way a census is taken. Instead of the divide and conquer style used that started a census
with 1-60 and going from there, it will now start in 5 level increments and divide if necessary.</li>
<li>Added guild support. The mod will now capture guild data when viewed on the guild panel. This data
is used to provide more comprehensive data on the site and is available through the guild exports.</li>
<li>Added a tracking feature that will allow tracking of the number of characters seen during a census.
This data is displayed on the <a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/activity.php'>Activity Page</a></li>
<li>We are also now included in the Cosmos UI deployment system</li>
<li>Site related: Updated the way the site handles foreign languages and character sets. It should now
handle UTF-8 compliant character sets correctly. <i>If you find any incorrect character names or guild names, please let me know!</i></li>
<li>Site related: Am now tracking data on characters under level 10, but you will only be able to view
under level 10 characters on the character history and guild info pages. Under 10 info is not included
in the main <a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/census.php'>Census Display</a>, the <a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/quickstats.php'>Quick Stats</a>, or the <a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/realmstats.php'>Realm Stats</a> pages.</li>
<li>Site related: Added in realm information and guild exports. Info can be found on the
<a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/dataexport.php'>Data Export</a> page.</li>
<li>Added a <a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/mostwanted.php'>Most Wanted</a> page showing the realms
that have not been updated in the longest amount of time.</li>
</ul></p>


Of course, you can find more info on the <a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/censusplus.php'>CensusPlus page</a>.

One of the major additions is the tracking of counts when you take a census. Lets say for example you take a census at 6:15PM GAME TIME for your realm. Let's say you track 785 characters. This will be saved off and added to the database when you upload your data. This information will then be displayed on the activity page:

<a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/activity.php'>http://www.warcraftrealms.com/activity.php</a>

Please note that this info is only saved per session. The next time you log into the game, it will delete all of your previous time counts. This is to prevent people from submitting the same counts over and over if they happened to get an off time tracking that they never update.

It will take a while for data to come in across realms so be patient. Once the figures start coming in, it should give a decent indicator of on average how many players are currently throughout the day.

So hop over to the <a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/censusplus.php'>CensusPlus</a> page and grab the latest version!

We will soon be included in the Cosmos UI distribution system too so that will be a boon for Cosmos users!

I didn't understand. Will the data be deleted every time we login?
What will happen to us that have crushes every 5 min? We do lots of logins! Rolling Eyes

If you crash out or have to log back in, then the time counts will be lost. I do this in order to not get watered down by submissions that come in from people who do not have current time counts.

I could implement a session counter and only clear out info that is older by session and may implement this to help ease data collection for the time counts.

Note that this only applies to the time counts, and not for the rest of the data.

There is another small update available that fixes a couple of creeper bugs that managed to make it in to this release.

So the time counts is only for the activity page, but the normal data keeps safe?

I don't understand, wasn't it on version 2.0? Now it shows 1.2. Am I blind? Shocked

This release is 1.2, dunno where you came up with 2.0 =)

And yes, the reset is ONLY for the time counts, not for the census data. Your census data is safe =)
