HWBOT Rev4.3 released - new team ranking algorithm and plenty other improvements

Rev4.3 fixes plenty of bugs and focusses on a more rewarding and fair Team Ranking: the Team Power Points (TPP) for both global and hardware rankings have had a major overhaul. The hardware info pages now show a clear overview of the current records both made worldwide, by your team and by yourself.

The rankings have been improved to clearly show how TPP is distributed, and the user profile now shows where all your points come from, including clarifying the competition points. Check your profile, points tab.

The new TPP algorithm is currently recalculating +23000 hardware rankings, we expect it to be done in approx 8 hours.
