Finding yourself in the stats

Am I missing something obvious here, I’ve spent ages looking around, clicking/searching/postulating…!

How on earth do you find yourself in the feeder stats, there appears to be no search? I can’t even see my current position anywhere on my page, all I see is my highest position in the previous 30 days.

I just assumed there would be a button which would take me to myself in the stats and the same for country etc. I’ve only just started using this so am just getting set up, but thought this would be something obvious to see.

I’m probably just not seeing the obvious.

I’d been thinking about setting this up for a long time, but finally got around to it on Sunday.

Hi @fizzyade, I’m guessing you found your ADSB stats page (https://flightaware.com/adsb/stats/user/fizzyade). That has rankings in the lower part of the page.

But what I’ve noticed is that while your ranking is changing rapidly (new node and likely moving up fast through abandoned accounts/deactivated nodes), the 30-day stats table isn’t so good at showing where you truly are.

I don’t know if there is a good answer for seeing where you are right now, but I found that at various times I would be in the 30-day stats then disappear. Sometimes I’d be there but disappear on a page refresh.

Once your ranking settles down a bit you’ll find your stats more often and then all the time.

From the stats page scroll or search for your user id using your browser search function. Unfortunately there is no way to do this on the entire member list (28,000 plus). It must be done a page at a time. Even the page list is problematic because one can not specify a page to go to. One must view pages sequentially with a maximum of 200 entries per page.

It would be advantageous to be able to go to any given page in the stats.
It would be advantageous to be able to go to any given user id in the stats.
It would be advantageous to be able to go to any given site number in the stats.

Yeah, this is what I’ve been doing and as you say it’s far from ideal. It seems obvious that people would like to find their user/sites in the list with filtering, i.e global, by country, by region, etc so they can see their ranking in more refined areas.

I just thought I was being (even more) short sighted when I couldn’t find a way to do this.
