I'm introducing today something new: full user profiles for all players of the Creeper's Lab!
What you see above is a screenshot of my own profile. The basic information displayed for each player was already available through the forums, but easily missed. Most notably, you can see on this page someone's playtime on each server, when they were last online, along with any Minecraft name change they might have gone through.
Newly added are various gameplay statistics, such as the blocks most mined and placed, and various PvP-related data. Those curious to see the server-wide statistics can now consult the global stats section, also available through the website's menu.
You can easily access a player's profile through the search box now found right underneath the navigation menu on the website. You can enter a part or the full version of a current or past name, or even a forum name. As an example, someone trying to look up our colorful Merls could enter "Merls", "Salsa", "Henry_Jaime" or any other variation and find the same profile. As an added convenience, all player names displayed on this website now link to the appropriate player profile as well.
This update also adds proper 1.8 skin format to the forum display, so anyone who edited their skin when 1.8 rolled around will be able to see their characters with the extra layer added.
Please note that the statistics available in the profiles, besides server play time and first connection, are counted as of 1.8 only. The data format changed for the new version, unfortunately forcing the numbers to be reset.
I hope you'll have fun looking at your own information, and comparing your numbers with your friends!
Mojang released today a new update to Minecraft, 1.8.4. This new version is compatible with all previous 1.8 versions, so you're free to upgrade at your leisure.
On a related note, I've already patched the servers against the exploit that was disclosed yesterday, so we don't have anything to worry about on that front!
