Sorry to be picky, but... said: What about crews that row over all 4 days, so are simultaneously worth maximum and zero points? Does any incorrect guess score minus infinity?!Oops, I get it better now... The areas are all added together first... It would still go wrong if every crew rowed over, but that seems unlikely.

|The top line on the aggregate chart looks wrong for FaT M3. I know it's silly, but I still think it's wrong.|

|Ok, folks. Your last chance to enter the full-on 4-day contests. I'm diving off to the river now and as soon as the first results are here, that's it!|
JPD, I'm going to need you to find the errors in my scoring algorithm! As you will see, haven't quite finished it, but it's a good enough stop-gap for today. I believe the area figures are right. Fingers crossed it works at all!

|Well, not quite the smooth first day I'd hoped for....|
The Bumpit leaderboard is supposed to update with results as new results come in. Also I'm not sure why there are no men's results! Also, we need to find out the result of the rerow between Fitz II and Peterhouse II before tomorrow's competition can kick off!
Hopefully tomorrow will be better!
Racing was great though. Good rows from M3 and M2 which I saw.

|Wednesday's competition is now open|
And we're working to get the leaderboard running smoothly...

ScoreIt said: And we're working to get the leaderboard running smoothly...Yep... there are a couple of really annoying little problems which are causing small errors in a few cases. I need to get these sorted before setting up the full scoring.
Have to say, some pretty fine preliminary scores have been posted! Will be v. interesting to see how the week pans out!!!! :-)

|I have fixed the aggregate charts. 84% of people think that Downing are going down tomorrow.|

|I like the new goldness of the aggregate lines (I was playing with it when you changed it!) - much easier to see what's (supposedly) happening. :)|

|It took a good few minutes of thought before we hit on gold as the colour for the new lines.... Martin can't really see them though, cos he is colourblind. Hence the rest of the charts are in greyish.|

|Does that mean that the message boards are hard to read? Because they are in gold. Gold is a good sort of a colour.|

|Another fix to the aggregate charts - this one just affecting sandwich crews. It now properly shows Fitz with a 73% chance of bumping New Hall into division 1.|

My eyes have about 50% efficiency in detecting the red component. This must mean that gold looks rather darker and greener than it's supposed to.

|Just uploaded new predictions charts - which show the actual results underlaid as thicker lines. I hope this will also pick up actual results through the day (incl on 1-day charts) - if someone could keep an eye on this and confirm I'd be grateful!|
Check out Rich (Sidney Sussex)'s women's prediction so far! Seriously impressive.
|by fudgeIT - Thu 2nd Mar 2006, 12:37pm|
|That's very cool, I like it! At some stage will the exact scoring system be published? I don't think it'll make any difference to my predictions strategy (which is so far yielding results worse than if I'd predicted nothing at all) but could be interesting.|
|by Bryn - Thu 2nd Mar 2006, 5:31pm|
|Possibly a big ask, but can we have a leaderboard to see which club is best at predicting results? (Just average scores over all the members from each club or something.)|
|by Martin - Thu 2nd Mar 2006, 6:25pm|
|BumpIT Friday is open for business. Will anyone score 100?|
Probably easier tomorrow than Saturday, with the number of divisions racing each day increasing......

My mistake said: It would still go wrong if every crew rowed over, but that seems unlikely.Nearly happened in M1 yesterday!
I don't think it's going to be relevant this year, but can future Lents have some sort of bonus game for predicting cancellations?
|by Martin - Fri 3rd Mar 2006, 10:25am|
Simon said: Nearly happened in M1 yesterday!Although that wouldn't be a problem in this case - because the rejigging of the scores is done on the total within each competition. I want to write this up properly today.
|by Martin - Sun 5th Mar 2006, 12:17pm|
|Unfortunately we are missing results for M2 and one result for W2 from yesterday... BumpIT winners will be announced when CUCBC publish the final set of official results and these are updated!|
