HWBOT 2020 Make it great again Thread:

Recommended Posts

So for those that slept the last months under a rock, it is sort off official that HWBOT ownership has passed on from the original developper Frederik to the Thermal Grizzly company. 

Before continuing I would like to thank Frederik and the staff ( or whats left of it ) to have kept the Bot up and running, especially for the last year. 

I've had several phonecalls with the new owners and they stressed the Bot will remain a free service to the OC community. The main goal is to preserve the database, fix initially some major bugs and revise the current point calculation.

Now everything will take time and there will prolly not be a huge overhaul but we would like to hear your input on things. 

These discussions have been held before, but some of the previous decision makers are no longer amongst us and maybe time to revise some stuff.

 

UPDATE: Transfer of access is nearly completed as the paperwork is being finalized. Hopefully the new programmer has full access soon!

 

Current to do List:
(there are way more things we need to address then the below, but these are the ones that should be the most visible to the users) 

 

Main Site:

  • Removal of the current point cut-off system (75%), everybody deserves credit for their efforts
  • Fix the competition points bug
  • Hardware master ranking, no more updates ???
  • Scores drop off, subs get hidden
  • Easier to understand rule set (challenging for sure) / update "How to Videos"
  • Front page 2020 refresh with pictures/videos/streams
  • Adding Port Royal to 3D bench list
  • Merging off "with BenchMate benchmarks" into the normal ranking
  • Revision of benchmarks (removal/adding) and their affiliated points 
  • Replace 2x/3x/... crossfire with Graphics card
  • Removal of submitting via XTU button
  • adding user Delete button (for 24hrs max)
  • Adding/updating achievements list ( definitely requires your input )
  • Update "About HWBot"

 

Videos:

  • New Tutorial videos offered by der8urner (editing and such)

 

Forum: 

  • Result discussions need to be re-linked to the Hwbot submissions
  • Continuously Securing/Updating/patching the forum    

 

Bugs:

 

Benchmarks:

  • Omission of Parallel Pi
  • Omission of Realbench 
  • Omission of 1068... & shzo benchmark

I would like to know who are "authorities" as of now - result moderators, forum moderators. A link on front page "Our team" will be great.

Definitely most of the 'about' hwbot needs updating, from benchmark rules to who the 'staff' are etc.

Now seems like the time to implement/change the way the leagues work since there's already going to be some confusion, just get it all done with at once 😁 (single league or rookie/general/elite ftw)

It will be step by step George, your proposal  is already a serious overhaul. 

Changing rules, linking them to new benchmarks is on the to do list (but not visible for the users ofc)

I support all the things on the todo list, especially point revisions and integrating Benchmate. 

I'd like to help where I can. Please let me know.

First I've heard of it, guess I'm sleeping under a rock.

Don't assume the masses know what's going on behind the scenes and keep the front page updated.

Make achievments happen. First to hit 9 ghz, first to hit 5 ghz on mems etc

Like feats of strenght on the profile. Better than you made 100 subs with g.skill, buhuu.

Will love to see who the first to hit 9 ghz lol, just imagine that there is an fx chip somewhere rotting away in an OEM machine that's never been cleaned but if given some lhe and an expert touch could hit 9001

Proposed changes look great tbh.

Having things easily accessible and understandable for newcomers will be great imo.

Yep mate, the old ones are no longer cutting it. I would love to have one how to bench at HWBot. Analysis first of what hardware are we benching, which benchmark then choosing the right OS and co... But we need some sort of script to follow to make sure everything has been mentioned

  • Joe will do one with how to use and submit with Benchmate

Had no idea you were partial to the midwest timbre lol

probably moreso that I literally tell everything I'm doing when benching on stream usually.

Thx great job so far, 

some typos left and right: (verion, samample,...)

  • I would only talk about the big version with included Matt approved bench set
  • The "With benchmate categories" will dissapear because they will be merged with the exisiting ones, as it is too confusing for the users.
  • Submissions will still require 2 - 3 (for compos)  CPU-Z windows to make moderation and comparison easier
  • Thus show them manual submission by the benchmate made screenshot only  (as I have no clue when full integration by datafile will be done)

Thx heaps!!

^ I know I'm being slow -> Have had the Nvidia Cards for 2 yrs -> I would still like to get my " Have Benched 25 Different ATI/AMD or Nvidia GPU's cookie 🙂 

- To add to the wish list :  When I first started, I did not fill out the submission forms correctly :( Now looking back at my list of Hardware that I have Benched/Submitted, I have found several errors. I would like to fix these errors but I can only view/change the last 20 submissions with a __________.

^ This is the only place (Specially made just for ME 🙂 ) that you will find a EVGA R9-280x submission.

Thank You
