    This would be appreciated regardless of whether or not someone wants to host the project for you. It's an overall nifty idea and reminds me a lot of Shields for git projects. Host the source on GitHub. Would be a great learning experience ^-^ Would also allow us to contribute to the project, which while it's closed source, might I suggest dynamically expanding the beveled background based on the length of the title? The resource titles get cut off currently ;P

  11. bump for nothing
     
  12. finally reach
    3k requests
    with 81 hours uptime
     
  13. Im Curious where the data is being pulled from
    I put the images in my signature. For GraviTree it shows 201 downloads
    Also it shows the plugin has 1 rating, yet theres three
    Yet, my plugin has more downloads than that

    I would guess spiget.
     
  15. Yip, I have the same issue.

    yep, spiget is lacking behind with the data, it shows 5.0/1 for gravitree, nothing op can do about.
    another future issue could be that spigot caches images, so they will never be 100% up to date.
     
  17. Pretty sure if you just link the image it will always update - at least that's what it's doing for me.

    Not instantly iirc. Someone was complaining about that for his resource description the other day.
     
  19. It's really good idea make status for maked plugins with ratings!
    I'm can suggest one idea please make banner with user statistics (ratings, topics, etc.).

    Good job!
     
  20. that was me!
    I wasn't aware they were cached on the website.
    Also, the one for my signature, i don't think its cached because if you reload the page, the colors constantly change.
    But thanks for letting me know the data comes from Spiget and its not the OPs problem. The more i know :)
