hello. I have 2 questions i think.

1. This realm uppdate have many ppl it are on every server. How often does it uppdate? Becaus i wanna switch server to a bigger and wanna take a big one. So i wanna be sure if it uppdates every day or month Smile

2. It stand like 20 241 on alliance on the server outland. Does it mean how many player it is online or how many member is it on the server?

Thanks for answer, sry for really really bad english. Im 13 and from sweden Razz

1) It updates whenever someone runs a census on the server, so for some servers, quite often, for others, not often at all, since it's entirely based on users submitting censuses, and a lot of servers aren't really covered well.

2) That would be how many characters have been seen online within the past 30 days. There's likely been more characters than that actually online within 30 days, but it always depends upon how many updates are received from users, as to how accurate the results are. Outland seems to have had a lot of updates recently, so it should be fairly accurate Smile

Hope this helps a little!

Balgair already covered the important parts, but couple of minor additional details:

1) Submissions are not processessed instantly. It normally takes about 1 to 8 hours for a specific submission to get processessed.

2) One can drop the "likely" part. If my improvised math is correct, even 16 people running censuses 24/7 with 15 minutes upload intervals, each person timed 1 minute off eachother would still miss occasional characters making very brief (= less than 1 minute) visits online.

And no faction is even close to that... I think the very highest values for specific factions are around 40 censuses submissitted per day... nowhere near 1440. Very Happy And sadly.. some realms fail to attract even one census a month, as things stand now. Sad

Also, as additional afterthought, even that math would fail, if a single census lasts over 15 minutes, which isn't all that rare on high population realms. Hmmm... If I assume the about 54 minutes I recall to have spent on a peak time on high population realms is assumed as maximum... Ummm.... 55 people on for 24 hours per day at above mentioned assumptions... 54 x 1440 = 77760 censuses per day per faction to not miss anyone who stays 1+ minutes.... Uhhh... just not doable, ever. Very Happy

Too much advanced math, need a break... Very Happy

Epic Censi wishes all readers a good day / night! Very Happy

I think the value between full and locked is 4500 characters in one faction for many, but not necessarily all servers (depends on what sort of hardware they run on, I believe).
