- name changing support
- partial name matching when searching for members
- automatic case correction when inputting
- easier interface using escape for aborts and enter to confirm
I've put together (for my own usage, but I thought I may as well share it) a program for helping clans to quickly maintain ranked tables of quests in their clans. I can speak from the success of my own that having a list like that naturally increases the motivation as people compete, aim for the proud top, or try to escape the shameful bottom.
The main point of the ranker is to format the list in a nice format for common BBS forums and as such it uses the BBCode which is standard across the internet. It's fairly strictly locked into the format I chose for my clan, and while I doubt you'll object to the layout I plan to upload the 3 source codes for the program in case anyone wants to tweak it, or if the compiled [Caution: Executable File] is not compatible with their machine (since I use 64bit). Since it's just a throwtogether it's not heavily commented.
"]QuestRanker 5.3.1 Working App (Xp64)
note: the above was just the first free hosting site i could find offhand. If someone knows a better host feel free to tell me, or if anyone wants to host it themselves you can. There is nothing personal in the program so it's freely distributable.
I hope this proves of help to someone other than just me. It may be a little buggy now (my fault for rushing it in a morning off) but meh
Make sure your current data (a sample is provided) is saved as "input.txt"
the title lines for the sections are the tags read by the program so make sure it follows format.
run the program in the same directory as the input file and follow the prompt
output can be saved back into the same file ready for copying or for loading in future
