Statistics most of the time represent things like "kills" or "deaths" or "meters walked". GameMaker Server provides a collection of functions for implementing statistics and syncing them to an online account or username.

There's no maximum number of statistics. Every statistic has a short name. This is used to easily distinct different statistics. A statistic named 'pixels_walked' is easier to recognise than a statistic named '946258.'

Is there anyway to view other player's statistics, and if not will there ever be? This is kinda important to me, as it's one of the main reasons I like statistics - to compare them with friends. Thanks for the help in advance =)

Sounds like highscores might be more suitable for this. Any reason you can't use them?

I guess high-scores could work for this, I just wasn't using them because I felt like it'd be much easier using statistics if possible (something along the lines of gms_statistic_get(Player_id, Name)) but I can make do with high-scores. Thanks for the help! =)

Somehow I'm confused about how this works,
So you can use this to make a scoreboard right ?
But then can you put that scoreboard on the game ?
(for example).

Yes, you can put the scoreboard in your game. You have a built-in GUI to show with one simple command or you can write it yourself. It's not that hard!

Do these reset for every session or are they permanent?

Statistics are permanent. (and per-player)
