live chat request
« on: May 10, 2017, 10:49:07 AM »
While I think the live chats are awesome, there is already a lot to keep up with in changes and many of us don't have time to watch the chats to find the updates.  Can I please beg for the announcements to go on here after the chats?  I know I'm not alone in not having time to watch the chats to keep up.  I try really hard to keep up via the board but I just can't add the extra time to my day to watch a video too.  A quick announcement here would be fabulous.  Thank you!!!

I would request there be a post here a few days in advance of the next live chat.  I didn't know about the last one and just stumbled on to it.  I check the Fporum multiple time  a day so I don't miss things.

I agree with Linda.  I didn't know anything about the "live chat" until I saw it on the Forum.  Would be nice to have some advance notice.  Thanks, Chris, for all you are doing to improve the NADAC experience.

When it's something like this one,   where it's not immediately effecting anyone negatively.   SCT going up and a new leaderboard on the website.   I'm not too good at announcing things.

When we did the big announcement about Hoopers I put that one out there almost a week in advance :)

But we'll try to let folks know!

I didn't know about it until an agility group posted it on their FB page!

I guess my request is getting missed.  Is it ok to ask for a 2 sentence summary?  So far I've gathered that SCT is changing and something about a leaderboard... Truly, I can't be the only one who can read the board at lunch but who doesn't have time to watch the full videos?  Thank you for all that you do and I really am trying to keep up but adding the videos is just one thing too many for me.

1.  There is now a table in the rule/handbook (page 23) that lists exactly what SCT is for all classes (Reg, Chances, etc.) and all heights (20, 16, etc.) and all levels (Elite, Open, etc.).  It used to just be by class and level and the way you figured lower jump heights (and skilled, vet, etc.) was by doing the math for a 10 to 20% reduction in SCT.  Now there's just one table and SCT is listed for each class, each level, and each jump height.

2.  In the past there was an annual Top Ten List for the year.  From now on there will be a Top Ten List - most likely named "Leaderboard" that will be an ONGOING listing of top ten dogs.  It will probably just be top ten by class right now - and not by breed yet.

You're not the only one... Chris, I have an idea. Instead of a live chat to release changes, can those changes be announced on the forum and then a life chat scheduled for the next day? That way - everyone has access to the same info at the same time (ie even those not on facebook) and folks can attend the live chat if they have questions or want to hear more about the topics being discussed?

Thanks for adding the SCT chart! That makes it a lot easier!

There is always the announcements page on the website if you prefer text over video :)   Not as detailed of info, but it gets the general point across

I know there has been a lot lately, but once things settle down a bit these videos really won't happen much.  It will really only become a Q&A session for the folks who want it :)

I just looked and I don't think it is up yet.  But I'm pretty sure it will be under the Titles and Awards Tab when it is.  That is where the other Top Ten Lists are now.

Correct!

I'm putting the final touches on it tonight.  So should be able to get it up either tomorrow or the day after :)
