Is there a better way to navigate the Standings pages?

Is there a better way to navigate the Standings pages…and I am just too dumb to figure it out???

I don’t generally pay much attention to the Standings, but today I got curious to know where I rank within my country (I know where I am worldwide, that is fairly simple).

So I went to the Global Standings page and find no discernible search function. I changed the drop-down at the right side of the chart to United States, and waited for the list to reload. I scrolled down to the bottom and set it to display 200 entries at a time, and waited for the list to reload again.

Since I figure that I am probably somewhere near the middle, I looked for controls to jump through the results. I see buttons for First Page, Last Page, Next, Previous, Pages 1-2-3-4-5, and page 69. I select page 5, thinking that it will reload and give me the option of 6-7-8-9-10 and I will be able to advance through 5 pages at a time.

But after that first 5 page jump, I can only go to the next page, the previous page, or the first or last.

Normally, this would be mildly annoying. What makes it super annoying is that each time I advance by one page, list is taking anywhere from 25-35 seconds to refresh with the new data.

Eventually, it turns out that I am #8208 out of 13,789 feeders in the US. That put me on page 41 out of 69, when set to 200 per page. Not as high as I had guessed, but that’s fine. The problem is that it took me nearly 20 minutes to figure that out. I had hoped that the page url would have a query string that would let me advance to a specific page, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

So 30 second wait to load page 1 with the first 200 feeders, another 30 seconds to load page 5, and then 30 seconds each for pages 6-42.

What am I missing here??? If I wanted to see the page that included me in the overall standings, at # 12506, I would have to navigate to page 63 - waiting 30 seconds for the page to load…60 times. It seems to me that if you aren’t in the first 1000 or on the last page of results, the page navigation is nearly unusable.

I appreciate any replies that show me that I am a complete dumba$$, and that it is super easy. Because it should be easy.

I just went through the same pain. Fortunately I only had to wade through 12 pages. To site admins, why can’t we just search the standings by our user name?

Not to mention that those outside the US always have to either scroll through the country drop-down list or type the name of their country each time they want to know their standings …

I am in the US, and I had to do that as well. The page opened to global stats, and I had to go to the drop-down and scroll down to United States because the list was arranged alphabetically.

(but I am glad it’s not just me)

Being able to do this would be great, it’d really help.

/edited because it tried to change it to a hyperlink.

thanks for the awesome information.

This is one for @obj really.

That’s fine. I was really just hoping that I was missing some fundamental, obvious functionality & was overcomplicating things.

It sounds like that’s not the case.

Thanks!
