Re: HOF in login page

Just imagine ... You have a nice pretty login page, with a full Hall of Fame listing the top 5 users by <whatever>.

Great, looks good... BUT

Every time any search engine sees the page, your software will run that query. Every time a real person looks at that page, your software will run that query. It wouldn't take long or be difficult to flood your database server with requests, slowing down the main game itself and perhaps causing the DB server to shutdown.

There ARE ways around it, very simple ones in fact, and a little thinking can easily lead you to the position where you can implement these without any difficulty.

What you have to do is analyze the question carefully. Just what is it that people see when they look at a HoF page? How accurate is the data, does it even need to be accurate?
