    Hello!

    As some of you may know, as of recently our beloved www.leechcalculator.com has been broken. It is when we lose something that we realize how precious and nice it was. I've attempted to contact the creator in hopes that they'd give us an update on if it will ever be fixed but haven't received an answer, and i don't intend on harrassing this person :']
    (SrslyGuys, If you see this, Thanks for making such a great tool <3)

    Now, I'm certainly no tech genius.. I have no clue how hard or easy making such a tool/website would be.. but with leech being such a core mechanic in ML, it got me thinking if it would be possible to have a more "official" version of said tool?

    Again, I have no idea how big of an ask this is.. but thought it's worth a shot asking atleast!

    Feels like I should add, for anyone not too familiar with the site. The feature that is currently broken is the character search. Once a character was searched, you could autofill the calculator with starting/ending level/exp at the click of a button. It was such a life changer.. Anyways, let me know what you guys think :)

    Like I said.. It's not that I can't calculate exp after a leech. It's just a QoL thing that leechcalculator.com was providing. And having everything on one page instead of spamming discord bots just made it even more convenient.

    With "official" version do you mean one made by ML staff as a collective?
    I personally think these kind of things should come from the community itself if there's a desire for it, just like how the leechcalculator originated

    I get your point. The idea was mostly so that it could be maintained by staff as long as server exists I guess? Since players come and go, like leechcalculator, not even sure if the creator still plays. But yeah i get that it's nice to see the community come through with stuff like this.. If it doesnt get revived i'll be grateful it atleast existed at some point

    I started working on creating a new leech calculator from the ground up yesterday but it's still a WIP.

    I saw this post so I decided to just deploy a mirror of the exact same site. You can access it here. Please let me know if something doesn't work.

    With that being said, are there any features or improvements leech sellers would like to see or is a revamp not needed?

    Thank you so much for mirroring this service!

    A few suggestions in order of my personal desires:

    1. An optional field for timestamp for start/end (of course, automatically populated with the timestamps that come in with the profiles to begin with);
    and also an automatic calculation of XP/hr if the fields are present. Definitely falls into the "would be nice to have" bucket, but it would improve transparency and comparisons between ratio/leech selling.

    2. Recording the ratio used somewhere in the History entries.

    3. Ability to to designate date/time formats (DDMMYYYY and 24h time particularly) -- low impact change, but would be nice.

    4. Of course, all additional information making its way to the export (and maybe changing the exported Date/Time column, or just adding a new column, for a unix timestamp).

    I mocked something up really quickly, and I think my presentation of the new information is very lacking (the ratio in particular is horrendous lol). But I'm confident there's a nice design that can be dreamt up by someone more imaginative than me.

    Most of these changes can have an equivalent improvement implemented for the "hourly" mode; suggestion #1 in particular would, again, improve transparency and comparisons between ratio/leech selling. But I doubt the site is used terribly often by hourly sellers.

    I agree with Nightz that there shouldn't be an official tool. The server already offers the API (directly or via Discord) for seeing exp, giving players the ability to do the math themselves.

    As per my wishlist of improvements? Leechcalculator.com is an amazing tool, but the #1 feature I would like to see, is suggested eph and/or suggested ratio to use based on the selected level of that character.

    Also, improved mobile breakpoints would be very nice :)
