MSX Rating

Many years ago, Novatec hosted a service called MSX Rating. It was a ranking system, presenting a list of the most visited MSX WebSites. Unfortunately, MSX Rating was disabled a long time ago. MSX Resource Center also shortly offered an MSX website rating facility, called Top Sites, which was closed in January 2002.

As of now, a new MSX Rating service has been introduced, with even more features than the original one. To webmasters, this rating can give a nice impression of the amount of visitors a website attracts, and it's relative popularity to other websites, whereas visitors of websites linked to MSX Rating can easily find other MSX websites. Webmasters interested in a daily page visit counter with MSX logo can register an account at the MSX Rating WebSite.

Nice initiative to restart the MSX Rating... though I wonder why not use GIF (or even better PNG) to enable transparency? People with a different background color will have a white rectangle because of the image.

Well, that is a 3D border. In my dark sites it looks good. Tongue
Anyway, I did not used PNG because not all browsers support it. I do not want to do something that works only on latest browsers.
Maybe I can add an option for GIF with transparent border, if you want to. But it'll be an aditional parameter. Smile

Just a question for the MSX Rating crew... how the counter works?. I mean, how the rating is obtained?. Please, check this screenie, and you'll see how this morning Karoshi Corp. forums counts 7 visitors + 1 user but the MSX Rating just counts 5... kinda strange. Anyone? :-?

Hi...
The counter only register different IPs. If more than one access is made from de same IP on the same day, it is just ignored.
If it was showing a counter of 5, that means 5 different IPs had acessed that page (or, at least, had accessed and waited for
MSX Rating image to be "called").
