Club Results FINALLY Done!

Posted by Paul S on Wed January 02, 2002 at 0h00

Well, it's finally done. The Club Results Archive is now COMPLETELY UP-TO-DATE! All the results from 2001 have now been entered, and I'm eagerly looking forward to entering tomorrow's results on time for the first time in nearly two years.

Once again I'd like to remind you about this link. If you bookmark it, you will automatically be shown the newest results. Now that results will be current, I think this link will be very useful, especially as we near the end of another season.

Starting with the December 20th results (which are the latest - remember there was no club on the 27th), I've enhanced the results pages to show Top 10s for many of the Achievers categories. We have too many people and many of the races are just too close to show only Top 5s, so it seemed like a good idea. Of course it will make the pages even bigger but I think it's worth it.

I'd also like to briefly recap some of the newer features of the Archive. These of course have been available for a long time, but the results have never been current until now! There's the Hall of Fame which contains record performances of all kinds. Overall Club Statistics are also tracked and archived along with the weekly results. Also, there are many more statistics on the Full Ladder that is also archived weekly.

As I mentioned before, the whole inspiration for getting the results up to date was that they are (tentatively) going to be considered official! If all goes well, our yearly club awards will be given out based on the information stored here on the web. We should be finalizing the details of this within a few weeks, and I'll let you know what will be happening.

It was March of 2000 when I stopped entering results in order to perform a major upgrade that was only supposed to take 6-8 weeks to finish. Six months later the upgrade was completed, and by then the backlog of results was enormous. Several of you didn't think I'd ever get the results back up-to-date, and frankly I had some severe doubts as well. Well, it took me 22 months, but at last it's done! Never again will I let myself get so far behind. (Now if I could just get caught up on my 3+ years of personal game scores...)

A reminder that the Marathon Tournament is on Saturday. Within the days after it I'll be updating some other neglected sections of this site and then I'll provide you with an outline of my plans for the site for 2002.

On behalf of all of the Directors of the Calgary Scrabble® Group, Happy New Year to everybody. It should be a very good year for the site, and indeed for the club in general!
