Title: Championships results for this year
Post by: Chris Nelson on September 16, 2013, 06:44:05 PM
So I made a little page to keep track of all the results this year.   I spent very little (zero) time in making it pretty, it's just data on a page.   But it's fun data :)

Here is the page:
http://nadacforum.com/ChampsScore (http://nadacforum.com/ChampsScore)

As you can tell it is completely devoid of any information, except for a couple test entries.    But once Championships start it will start to get more interesting :)

We will probably post the results to this page about thirty minutes after the results are posted at the event.  Mainly so that we don't take away any of the surprise/excitement that the process of being there and seeing your name on the board can bring :)

Chris - does one have to be a Forum Member to get to the link? This would be a fun link to send to friends and family back home.

Nope this will work for anybody.  It's not a protected page or anything.  If I have time I might add a tab on here for it so that people wouldn't have to come into this thread to find it, but honestly I don't see that happening :)

Thanks Chris! Yeah, I don't see that happening either. I'm thinking you're pretty busy about now. Looking forward to seeing you next week. I can just email the link to friends and family. Thanks for doing what you do!

Hi Chris, Will the Q's be on this as well?  I didn't see a column. Since there's not really a chance for me to place, I'm going for the Q. Thanks!  Angela Pezzarossi

No, the Q's will not be listed on the champs results page posted.  We do record Q's but since they are not the major focus of the event itself, we do not post those as part of the champs results.

I can send a set of normal weekend trial results each night to competitors showing the Q's and NQ's.  But they come out of a totally different set of software than the software that calculates the Championships placements.  We score every dog into two different sets of results.  Normal weekend Q's and Champs scoring of time plus faults.

The results that I will send to Chris at the end of each round is coming out of the champs scoring software so Chris' results do not calculate a normal weekend's Q's.  But I will send those results to the competitors separately.

Great to hear we can earn Qs at Champs. For us, Champs is about the fun, the people and of course, the purple  ;D but Qs are a very appreciated bonus.

Just curious, if we have a dog in Open are any Qs we earn applied to that level, do they apply at Elite and wait till we get there or do we just not earn them because we aren't in Elite yet?

 Chris,

     This is awesome, one question I don't know if you remember our Video review you and Becky did last year that changed a result of a run.  If that were to happen to anyone this year would that update show up here in real time?  I think some people were surprised we were where we were last year because the posted results were NOT changed real time like the official results were.  This would make that a thing of the past and a great improvement for everyone!

Sincerely,

AK Scott & Jazz

Yup!

The nice part is that the upload for this page works directly with the 'main' scoring catalog.

So if any changes are made we will end up just re uploading that particular round and call it a day :)

What is the "Final score" column on the Champs results sheets???
Title: Re: Championships results for this year
Post by: Richard Wolfe on September 27, 2013, 03:43:45 AM
There is some kind of 'base score' number around 125 or 150 depending on the course, apparently.  On a run, you have time plus faults added together and subtracted from that base score to get the Final Score.  That way, the ranking is now based on the highest score instead of the lowest score.

Hi, Sorry to butt in but nobody can tell me how to find the run order for today at Champs....any helpers?

Hey Chris, great job with the results.  Love it.  When you had to fix the triple crown round 4 small dogs, the large dog scores went away.  Could you please fix again. :)

Chris/Sharon,
    Will it be possible to post the standings after round 7 ? It would be nice to know how our friends are doing point wise?

Yes, the base score is based upon the length of the course and technical difficulty of the course.

So everyone walks into the ring with a "base score" and then time and faults are subtracted from that, leaving the "final score" for that round.

We will post the round 7 as it's completed, same for finals.  But we won't post overall scores until everything is finished.

Thanks for posting the results Chris.  It was nice to see how our friends were doing and who won before they all got home.

Will round 8, finals, be posted some time?

Thanks,

They sure will!   Although it will probably take a back seat to some other more pressing issues :)

Gee, can't imagine there are really "pressing issues" in the life of the chief NADAC techie!  (Like, did your wallet ever show up?!)

This site was definitely Cool Beans throughout the week!!  Looking forward to the final run numbers too, whenever you get to them.  And perhaps you can explain to us non-geek types...why that round's results are delayed ?  Obviously they are "in" the system...

Many thanks for this and alllllll your other hard work!!

We have found that we need to hold round 8, just because too many refer to it as the "finals round" and then competitors see the scores from that one round and think that their "overall" placements should have been different.

Last year we never posted it and just added the Q's to the exhibitors records.  This year we will post with lots of references to "Round 8" and not refer to it as the "Finals round" and try to stop some of the reactions...

Round 8 isn't actually in the database yet.   All the scoring is done in a excel spreadsheet, and as each round is completed I upload it into the database for you guys to view.   When it got to the end I decided that I just wanted to upload the overall totals and go to dinner, rather than do round 8 and the overall and miss dinner :)

Isn't missing dinner a tradition at Champs!  :) 

Good for you Chris.  I acutally had my own spreadsheet going so I was able to figure out who ran in the finals and how they scored.

Title: Where are Qs found?
Post by: TwoPawsOn on October 04, 2013, 11:03:49 PM
Just wondering where to look for Qs from the Champs rounds.  Got two results emails during Champs but not a final tally.  Is there a final "results" email coming or where are you ultimately recording them?

Many thanks to the scoring fairies and Chris for making the process WAAAAAY faster than we could have ever thought it could be done!

Thanks!

I see where I got results from Rds 1-5 via e-mail and the results are now up on the forum, but I am looking for results for rounds 6 and 7.  I think that both dogs should have Q'd in Rd 7 since they were both clean and fast, but I don't see their results listed on the forum and I haven't gotten an e-mail either.
