Title: Leaderboards
Post by: Chris Nelson on May 20, 2017, 07:19:44 PM
Hey Folks,

Leaderboards are up!
Well Step 1 anyway.
Step 2 will be more options beyond this basic page to look at.
Step 3 will be to make things prettier :)

Are those for the year or for the month?  If they are since Jan 1, I think something is wrong.

The ones for Regular and Jumpers (only ones I opened) say MONTHLY.

Yeah, but what month?  And does it count VT?  And why monthly when the top 10 is yearly?  Just curious and full of questions.  I do think it is an awesome new feature!

Are the points posted for the month of April or May?   Just trying to figure things out?

Also will points earned in May and currently pending be considered final at end of May or when?   Just trying to figure out how you are counting points?

It is current month for now.

I'll be updating the pages tonight to make it a little clearer, as well as adding the past months for this year

Most likely I'm just not seeing it, but I'm trying to find the link to Leaderboards on the home nadac.com page.  I thought it would be under the Titles and Awards tab but I'm not seeing it.  I know I can click on the link in this original post, but if I just go straight to nadac.com how do I find it?
Title: Re: Leaderboards
Post by: danforth on May 23, 2017, 10:18:43 AM
Leaderboards are great.   

And I was able to download updated points fine.   But the Title and Awards button does not return any awards for Cocoa  10-11316

Did something happen to that page?

Thanks.

I presume Chris may be working on it.  I ran my dog's point history and the Title column is not populated with any data.  That being the case, the query you are trying to run wouldn't have any data to pick up to build a report.

The missing titles issue should be fixed!

I haven't added the leader board link to the website yet.  Because you guys are the guinea pigs :)   I didn't want it to be too easy to find until I was sure the bugs were worked out.  Which I'm glad because a few unforeseen issues came up that I need to resolve before I make it easy to find!

I guess I'm just slow, but I still don't understand exactly how this is working.  Are the dogs listed the fastest, have the most points in a month in a given class or what?

Most points in a month.

As time goes by we 'might' try to work in DRI's into it.  But we have some issues to iron out before that happens

So the dogs/results listed now are from April?

VT does count.

It's monthly because a lot of people don't like having to wait until the end of the year.

Title: Re: Leaderboards

We've got some new pages added today.   Now you can look back at the monthly leaderboard all the way back to January of this year.

Once it's out of the current month we are limiting it to the top 10 dogs.  If it's a tie for 10th then all those dogs get listed as well.

Any chance of also getting monthly results by breed?

Another option to consider might be year-to-date instead of individual months. Monthly achievements are sporadic, depending on when trials occur in a particular geographical area (the only reason my dog and I show up on the May leaderboards is because we just happened to start the month with a three-day double-run trial). Year-to-date results, on the other hand, would track cumulative progress towards year-end placements, which is probably what most people are interested in anyway.

I agree it would be more relevant.    The only downside is that a lot of people really look forward to the end of the year top ten announcements.   So I'm not sure if doing a cumulative throughout the year would detract from that.   If fluffy has been in first for 8 out of the last 12 months it's not gonna be a big surprise when he comes in first for the year end top ten.

At least this way you could still figure it out, but it's gonna take some work!   So it would hopefully keep the year end stuff a little more exciting

VT does count.

I'm a little confused...I have four open hooper vt for may, 40 points, they are in my points final (dog 15-10192). But I'm not on the current leaderboard. i'm not fussed just confused as I assumed vt just didn't count until I saw this  :)

EDIT: oh is it just elite, maybe?

You got it, it's just elite dogs for right now.

Once I'm sure everything is showing up correctly we'll start adding a bunch more options like different levels, breed selections and we're playing around with the idea of something else that would be pretty cool, but we have to work the basic ones out first :)

I agree!  Have to have some excitement and mystery.

Right now, there are no listings under 'current month'.   Yet points earned for end of August are pending only.    Is that because it is now September?    So we will see the effect of those points once there are August points listed below?

Thanks.

Correct and correct!

We're in limbo.

Waiting on a set of results from August, so can't post that page.

And no results have come in yet for September, so nothing to show there either :)
