This is in the makings! Along with a redesign of some sections, the addition of em machines to the archive, a game room gallery for each Pinsider, redesigned market place and a renewal option and much more!
High scores on the Pinside are something I've wanted to do for a long time. Currently there are only some sketches on paper and a basic database layout so this is an excellent time to discuss this new addition to the site.
I wanna keep things simple to start with, but totally open for suggestions!
Here are my thoughts:
1- anyone can enter high scores they made and form their own little archive of scores they made. This will be shown on their profile page.
2- settings of the machine should be noted for each high score. Which settings are relevant? Number of balls, what else?
3- taking a median average (that is, an average without the extremes) and displaying this for each machine as a guide of what could be considered a good score.
4- pinside karma determines wether your scores are part of the display described at point 3.
What are your thoughts?
