While this is a good suggestion, we don't really see anyone use it actually, besides awarding the tracks of your buddies..
Also, this requires some kind of authentication, or at least identification with your uplay account (which seems to be the best option here), but this isn't possible if I'm right..

And seeing the number of maps going up soo fast it's nearly impossible to even get awarded by someone.

Why it's requires big authentication? Simply register like TM-X or Mania-Exchange is enough (work on that websites so will work here). People do not use awarding because is not exists, they will start and when they start - some good maps may be the same popular as Nadeo default ones.

I agree, let's make it the same way TMX and MX are :1010

But only if you can and if you have time of course :thumbsup:

I have just shutdown the turbo exchange due to the less visitors and use of the service, the cost of the server and the lost time in maintaining the server and service. Also to make the pressure on the Amazon servers (that Nadeo payes) a bit less.

Some neat statistics:
  • We downloaded ~40GB of mapfiles (GBX).
  • We stored 142749 documents in our map collection (MongoDB).
  • We served the website to ~2595 users (Analytics).
  • We had ~29293 pageviews (Analytics).
  • We had over 2TB of traffic on our outgoing interface (system).
  • We scraped over millions of pages of the official website.
  • We used Angular 2 while it was in Alpha :shock: .
Thanks for the warm messages you gave me to invest time in the project! :1010

Hey,

i am really missing your turbo exchange so i went out and build a simpler version so i can still find good new tracks to play.. Since your main reason for shutting things down seemed to be the server cost i've build a stripped down database based on a google spreadsheet and hosted at github pages (means i don't have server costs).

Check it out at https://papoms.github.io/trackexplorer/

Its currently PS4 tracks only. Let me know if this is of any use or what you are missing.. My focus was to get a list of popular (as in most played) tracks to add to my favourites for offline play with friends.

Best,
Paul

Nice, good work.
I don't know if there is interest in opening the source of all the tools and stuff of the TMTurbo Exchange?

Maybe someone is interested in picking it up so why not. I did the same just in case i lose interest ;-)
