    Well having been there and done that kind of helps in knowing how to submit it to make it as easy as possible for you guys. I could have much more easily said "Hey guys, your counts are all off, fix them!", but I know how much I would have appreciated that back in the day

    A lot of them don't even come to the site anymore, for one reason or another, some more obvious than others... It's the same with former staff from a lot of other teams too though.

    Took a look, forgot about Puck and Shinobi, those guys have been around for quite some time, I think Shinobi was even a mod when I signed-up to the site.

    And thanks for the nomination, my first one!

    Ya, of the guys that were on before me and joined with me, I'm the only one that's really active anymore . Good to see the current guys sticking around for so long though, of all the current non-admin/non-supermod staff I think you're the one that's been around longest

    Completely forgot about Hodge... When I joined Pandora still had access but was inactive, and JC was just leaving. Fizz was in charge (would like to say more there, but probably shouldn't, especially in public space...), and Cacky was an active CD.

    Ah, you were with Apoch and Kamikaze! Ya, there was your group of three, the group of three recruited that I was a part of, there were 4 previous people on club duties when I was recruited (though only one and a half of them were active at that point), and then I think there was one more group of three recruited right around when I left... Can't remember who was in that for sure, but I kind of want to say bplayak, Deekboy, and BEA.

    It was 4.5 years ago that I was initially recruited if I recall right, me, GameFreak47, and Sirius. There were so many members that came and went while I was on that I honestly have a hard time remembering all of them, I don't even remember who else joined the team at the same time as you ...

    Anyway, the program, it's pretty simple. Takes the block of text you give it, feeds each line into an array (basically itemizes each line), then goes through them individually. I gave it a bunch of guidelines saying that if a line meets any of these requirements (has "first:" in it, "second:", one character in length, blank, etc.) then just skip it, then if a line doesn't get skipped it adds 1 to a counter. Get through to the end and the counter has the total number of members .

    see previous message first...

    That counts members while ignoring layout, assuming you don't have stray bits of BBcode floating around, thus why I threw that in the posts too... Not quite polished enough to share as-is, but if you guys ever want to make use of it in the future, you know who to contact, it could be polished pretty quick .

    And no problem . Like I said in the thread, I meant to do this years ago when I was still on the team (4.5 years ago?). Just didn't have the time back then unfortunately, same reason I volunteered to leave staff . Just make sure more than one of you guys don't tackle it at the same time. Could end up with some games still wrong, just with some games too short instead of too many, or vice-versa

    Uhh.... Back when Gamefreak47/Asian and I were first recruited for the clubs they decided to reformat all the clubs. New wording in each one, new banners, etc, etc. Together we managed to blitz that in a couple nights. Wasn't near as many clubs back then though .

    After getting fed up very early with manually counting I did pretty well have the same initial thought as you. Copy/Paste into notepad, remove all the formatting, look at number of lines, and compare to number of members. Even that got tedious after a while though, and meant I had to be very careful I didn't accidentally delete an extra line while removing layout. Ended up deciding to go with this approach...

    Quite a while! You don't realize how many clubs there are until you start going through them all. Originally I was looking at it taking a little over a week, using up most of my free time during the week that I had off to myself. Managed to keep figuring out ways to count them quicker and more accurately though (in reference to accuracy, I did double check most ), only "manually counted" the first half or so of "a" in retail. The whole process took about 3.5 days, including half a day spent entirely on refining the process .

    Not sure how much you guys have looked at it yet, if at all, but I made sure everything lists the discrepancy instead of what the actual value should be, so there shouldn't be a huge rush to get through it or do it before club sign-ups . Tried to make it the least burdensome possible, despite the size of it, I honestly didn't think the list would be that big when I started .
