Noticed in Census results and Rosters that people that haven't been seen in 30 days are still showing up.

Normally this is a result of people being inactive in game/cancelling.

This obviously skews the data and will overtime lead to the data becoming more and more incorrect.

I would imagine this is due to them still being in people's local databases and being uploaded all the time. Blizzard has promised a date() function that will let Rollie put in individual timestamps for characters, until we actually have that available the data will reflect this.

What Alanthus said =)


And another note, in the guild rosters and in character history, characters beyond 30 days will always be available here. The only place that characters older than 30 days will be filtered is on the main Census display, the Quick Stats, Realm Stats, and the Player Activity graphs.

I would suggest not including those past 30 days in guild rosters, due to the problem with people that may be booted out for inactivity or who cancel/leave the game.

Its not critical yet, but will become more so in another couple of months once churn starts to occur.

I agree, and I am working on some measures to counter this =)
