My first question was if anyone knows of some way of working around this to display my creature on my xanga, as it is much more frequently visited than on my main web page and is close to becoming my only personal site. Pretty much, I'm the only one who actually ever goes ot my own homepage, because it's essentially a universal favorites menu plus the RE stuff on there. If not, then oh well, I was just hoping to generate some more activity for my lil' buddy.
Also a separate question, but if two different computers with the same external IP but different internal IPs (ie, two computers on campus, most likely on the same network, being run through a router) were to visit my page with the script on it, would it count that as two hits or would it not be able to tell and count it as the same computer checking the page twice?
Finally, I was wondering if it's possible to put the script on a page to count the hits without actually displaying the creature. I'm guessing not, since the primary purpose is probably just for displaying the creature, but I just figured I'd ask for fun anyways.

Okay, that last question is a gimme -- Hel no! I am not running a counter service over here. What's the point of showing how many times a creature was viewed if it is not actually being viewed?
And if you meant the creature was to get experience from the ordeal as well, you'd be insane.
I don't care if two different computers view the thing; IP is all I log. Boo-frickin'-hoo for you Get a wider audience.
Tracking more than IP would, well, require tracking more than IP. I like keeping one list of one value, thankyouverymuch.
And to be frank, on my campus, every single computer has a different IP on it. I do not know how big your place is or how tech-savvy it is, so I could not infer the same is true for you.
So pretty much... don't do that.
So, the only way to display a creature is to... use the creature display code. Brain hurt now

I hate it when common sense prevails. As for the campus, we're a small school and they don't like us using their prescious resources. Everything but IMs and Webpages are blocked. And I realize this is all my own fault and not something you can change or would change, thus I was not asking for something that silly.
Thanks for reminding me that at the end of reality, common sense always prevails, especially when it's least fortuitous to do so.
