how in the world is it that a server which is brand new and only has 20 players lists as no5 on the list above several servers which have over 100.

Specificly


AncientK's LotGD    0.9.8-prerelease.13
A new server, very short days, lots of mods, needs players    0.9.8-prerelease.13
Pulpreligion.org's LOTGD    0.9.8-prerelease.13

One of which has removed the paypal logos.

hmmm... i wandered to the site without the paypal logo, the one ye listed second,  lotgd.t35.com.

granted there is not a logo, however upon clicking the 'donate!' will take ye to the paypal site and the donation is made to lotgd.net as it should be.

yeah.  I did that after I posted.  but none of these sites has more than 35 players.  Yet they are in the top 5.  The second place one only has 15 players.  One of them even leads to a url that directs you to another url.  

Kinda makes me wonder if they are cheating the system somehow.

This appears to be a topic more suited for the LotGD Forums or SourceForge LoGD Forums since it has nothing to do with any mods for the game.

One???  There are quite a few that lead to other places and not the game itself or are broken links  - LOL  Cool

i think the question needs be asked as to what is the method which determines a ranking.

Kendaer has explained the mechanics of the lotgd.net listings in here before...have a look for that thread.  If you disagree with how the listings work, then http://lotgd.net/forum is really the place to discuss/complain/question how it works.

To answer the question however, there is a bonus applied to a new server so that it shows up higher in the list briefly.  The logic for all of this can be seen in logdnet.php folks.  It's no rocket science Smiley  It's not even dark magic. Smiley

oh, man. people are talking about my site Shocked. I'm very sorry, first about the paypal my server won't let me upload the paypal pics, I'm going to try to fix that soon, as for the one site directing to another I had one site, I ran out of bandwidth so I put the redirect on the home page so all my players would know where to go, but I forgot to take it of lotgd.net, I'll fix that as soon as posible, and again I'm very sorry about all that.   Sad
