Heads up: total recalculation of the points scheduled

Just a small newspost to give you a heads up on a possible slower response from the HWBOT server this afternoon (or morning or evening, depending on where you live).

The latest HWBOT revision (r4.6.3) includes a fix related to the submissions of banned users. Previously, the results of banned users still affected the points of the rankings, meaning lower points for other participants in that ranking. R4.6.3 now fixes this, but there's still a part of manual labour involved: triggering the recalculation mechanism.

We expect the site to run a little slower than usual and this for a couple of hours. As you might know, there are about 650,000 results in the database ... lots of work for the engine in other words.

Thanks for your understanding!

The HWBOT staff.
