How to Move Data from Tornstats.com to Forums (And Make it Look Good)

Wyntyr

 

If you are the Faction Leader or Co-Leader, sign in to Tornstats.com and create your Faction.  Go to Faction Headquarters and click on Copy Link.  Send that Link to the entire faction and tell them to apply for the Faction ON Tornstats.com.  If you are the Faction Leader or Co-Leader, you can jump ahead to €śOn the first day of Chaining€.  

 

If you are the stats guy or gal for your faction, you will need to click on that link in the email and apply for the Faction ON Tornstats.com.  The Leader or Co-Leader should allow you to have all of the permissions that are listed.  At some point you will need to put in your API Code. Then you are able to go about making the stats sheet with results that can be posted on Forums.

 

On the first day of chaining, go to Tornstats.com and sign in.

Click on Factions

Click on Headquarters

Click on the Start Chaining button on the left hand side of the page

On a Weekly you will need to do this, to update the data, as the data is not saved that far back, you will need to click Factions, Headquarters, and click on Stop Chaining.  Then Press F5 and click the Start Chaining button once again.  If you do not do this, you will not have any data to pull when you go back a week later.

At the end of the first week of chaining (and every week of chaining after that), go to Tornstats.com and sign in
