I'm just relaying this great info from discord, Make sure to thank the Web Team in this topic!

luchaos — Today at 4:06 AM
@Community-News RAWeb 5.1.0 has been released & new servers
We are now starting to use the aggregate data that we started populating in 5.0.0
Add trending games to Active Players widget
Re-enable contribution points calculations (will update on next unlock)

New servers
Maintenance of the servers is done. Our services should be much more reliable now.
Please let us know in ⁠site-feedback if you encounter any issues.
As soon as the new servers have settled in we'll re-evaluate enabling the Web API again. Bear with us just a little longer.

Lets break it down


We have new servers, go try and load Super Mario World (SNES) and see how fast it goes. Previously this could take 10 seconds!


The front page now displays a new section which highlights the four most popular games being played at any moment.


Most of what this update entails won't be visible for you on the site, as a lot of it involves work done behind the scenes to ensure stability for the site with our growing userbase. A list of all the hard work and complicated recoding done by the Web Team can be found here: Link

Thank you for all the work. Site feels much faster. Lets see how it feels during peak time. And I am excited about the implementation of the "beaten" status.

Other than the speed, the new Trending section is 10/10. I limit myself in the games that I play, but I do dabble from time to time, and seeing others diving into things helps scratch the itch of "idk what to play but i don't wanna just browse through every game on a system until something jumps at me."

Also super looking forward to the Milestones section. Alongside the Trending, these are super welcome additions to the site experience.

As I understand it, a silver medal will be given for completing the main game? No side quests, mini-games, etc.

I'm so excited about this update!! I love the extra detailed statistics and can't wait for this to go live! And the site is absolutely much faster. I tried loading up A link to the past before and it would take 30 seconds. Almost instant now. This is so great

Is there a backend reason why the friend section was moved to how it is now?

It was a simple thing, but it gave so much to the profile page.
