what about qualifiers , guys , do i have to fill them in my own or just write qualifier ? 

 

I have just left 'Qualifier' where I think the qualifier would lose in round one anyway (just not at the men's tournament because there I thought it would be useful, but it wasn't :p ), and where I thought the qualifier would win at least the first round, I wrote the name with (Q) behind it.

This one definitely can't count for the general standings. Short notice, not complete templates, contradicting statements from prediction contest mods... It's back to the same old story from 2016 and 2017 (for which we still don't have results btw), as @Pablita very well explained in her post.

 

:yes I agree

 

@tuniscof is back :hatoff:, and we hope he can update the last year contests

Missing from 2017:

  • Tour de France
  • Judo WC
  • Afrobasket

(despite the GS 2017 have already a clear winner ........:bowdown:  @Dunadan )

There must be some rules, although they can seem harsh, they should be for the best. I don't think prediction contests on Totallympics can survive any more flops to be honest...

 

 

Yes it better not, i didnt complete my predictions, when i saw that it was cancelled ...

So now this will certainly only be for fun for me, because it will be difficult finishing high without any points from the first day ...

I can personally say that i dont care about the general standing, so for me its fine to not include this contest.

Concerning general standings for  2018, I had an idea that the points should be awarded according to the number of participants. For example: if contest has 40 participants, 40th place is to be awarded 1 point, 39th place 2 points and so on until we get to the half of the total number of participants. Then, 19th place should have 2 points more than the 20th... with difference between 10th and 1st gradually increasing and with 1st ranked getting 80 points (for each contest, max points = 2*number of participants). With this way, we award the winners at the big contests. It is harder to win when there are 50 people competing than 20.

What do you think?

Not sure, this would favor those who do well at more popular contests - meaning more popular sports.

 

Also, I have an idea concerning the general standings. I think using tennis-alike system would be nice, meaning  points from one contest are removed one year after the contest was held. Ranking could be updated on a monthly basis (as opposed to tennis' weekly basis). This way we'll eventually always have yearly Totallympics rankings, and not just at the end of each year. Also defending points and stuff like for how many weeks X user has been no. 1 can add to the intrigue. :d This time we obviously start from 0, so this is more of a 2019 idea.
