    Which player will exceed their listed stat? For each game that the player exceeds their stat in the following week, that player will score 0.5 points. (Select 1 answer untill 02-06-2014 08:00 PM

    Does this mean each of the two games this week? Says following week. This is Arizona question #3.

    Might want to just switch the wording on p12 Q#5 to which is the highest over the weekend. Oregon State plays Sunday. Unless you're trying to be tricky, or meant Oregon.

    Below are the highest totals for each category achieved by a P12 player so far this year. During games played from Thursday through Sunday, the category that has a player come closest to meeting the benchmark (evaluated on a percentage basis so 6 achieved and a benchmark of 7 would yield 0.857) will score 1 point. If 1 (and only 1) category is actually met or exceeded, 1.5 points will be awarded to the selection, and no other selections will score. If multiple categories are somehow met or exceeded, then only those will score and will receive 1 point. (Select 1 answer untill 02-06-2014 08:00 PM)


    Yeah

    I'll make your life easier. Just read this and don't worry about how it's scored.

    On pac-12 #2 question, modified wheel. I am not quite sure I get how this works. If each win is worth a 1/2 pt and each loss is -1/2pt. Conceivably if you picked USC and they were to win their one game and Colo and UA won both of their games (2 each) wouldn't that count for 2.5 points? You said ceiling is 1.5 points?

    In your example, if the total exceeds 1.5 points, then 1.5 will be the max points awarded. Pickem rules state that you can't get more than than 1.5 for a question and obviously can't get negative points on the other end which is why there is a floor of 0.

    For AZ #5, For option 5 (and same question for option 6), does AZ need to be outrebounded in both games or just when adding up the totals. EG. against Oregon outrebound 40-30 but against OSU lose battle 29-40. I'm guessing the overall total is in play so would evaluate as 69 for AZ and 70 for opponents and score the question?

    I changed it. . . someone scoring obviously missed the word exceed.

    If you see any mistakes with the questions or the scoring, always point it out early and often, its a team effort! Thanks!

    Yeah, I probably gave the wrong impression with my post above so I modified it!

    Apps - some of the answers that are scored aren't pulling over to the team/individual scores, are you having to manually input the scores? (eg BigT7 should have 1.0 on NCAA)

    OK, now it just updated after a 10 min lag, lol

    Now I'm seeing what you are saying. I'm fairly certain this is a byproduct of how the developers fixed the system. Before the reason the system ran so slow was it was constantly processing a ton of data and refreshing a ton of queries. Now theyve started using a caching process so it won't be a constant process. I put a question into them as to often it will be refreshing and if we can refresh on command. Definitely a small price to pay to get the site running fast again though.

    100% agree. System is flying right now. It doesn't take 10 mins on a decent day to get into the lineup. Very well done. Don't change a thing.

    Excellent update, thanks. Lord knows I agree on the small price comment -

    They may have it set on at least a 15-20 minute refresh, given the time elapsed from the Wisconsin Q being scored...
