For the last several weeks, @oafcmetty has spent God knows how many hours devising a new, and better, system. He and I have done a number of dummy runs now, changing bits here, improving bits there. T

Got it now and done it  thanks a lot. What a well run system this is 

Thanks a lot Bristol and Metty.

Don't forget to link your OWTB username - click the 'Hello...' message up the top and pick disjointed from the dropdown. Then click save.

Bollocks, there was me getting all clever, I didn't click on hello. Can I go back and do this.

That was easy, let Rudemedic know if he wants any tips on setting it up, to get in touch with me. 👍

@rudemedicwins the prize for finding the first bug! Should be sorted now (with a proper fix going in tonight).

Schadenfreude 

Especially as it wasn’t my fault.

I hate gloaters, there I was revelling in my glory. 

 

 

Hope you are well Ben, see you soon or not so soon.

At kick-off today in the Salford match, the following had posted in the old system,  but had not done in the new one. Can you all please replicate your preds in both systems for the Scunthorpe match? If you can't recall what they are, you will be able to see them here

 

Please help us by using both from now on, otherwise all of @oafcmetty's hard work will be made that bit harder for us.

Thanks to those that have posted in both. I've cross checked them and they all replicate each other.

 

A couple of players have already posted preds for Match 28 (Scunthorpe) in the current system. That's fine and you can post them in the new system at any time. In fact, you could complete the entire season's preds if you had a mind to. 

 

We now have 22 predictions to copy over either one way or the other.

 

Thanks folks.

What if some doesn’t post in both do they score no points ?

No, that won't happen as long as they use the current system.

 

We'll still calculate the points from the current system, but we still need everyone to use both so we can cross check that all the results and tables come out the same.

 

If they don't use the new system for the next two games, it just creates more work for us to do matching everything up and, as I've said in other posts, the current system will not be available from the Exeter game onwards.

 

I'll be updating my last post above from time to time today as players post their preds (hopefully, in both systems!).

Thanks for setting this up, brilliant work to all involved it looks great.  I've submitted on both systems, all seems to be logged.

Absolutely fine; it all checks out. Thanks.

Is my bloody awful and clunky mess of an Excel spreadsheet being retired then? And not before time!

 

Great work, Pete and Metty. 👍

Done! Cheers folks - I’m amazed I managed to sort that given I’m usually pretty useless with the interweb... thanks for the clear and detailed instructions. 

Echo this, great work by Pete and Metty.

It's almost consigned to the bin now. @oafcmetty tweaked it last year, but it is gradually having it's last hurrah. A bit like me, past its best. :bigcry:

The new system won’t let you edit a prediction  I went in to post a new prediction and it said I had already posted  and wouldn’t accept new one 

Editing works for me. What issue do you have? Does the edit fail, or is there no edit link?

I’ve tried both, not sure if they’ve gone through or not. Not got a clue where I’m at now as I’ve changed my prediction after seeing the line up. 

Both there, and identical :chubb:

On the far right of what the prediction page or the page that shows who’s predicted cause I can’t see it on any so I’ve got two prediction in one on the new system and one on the old both different  this is the third way of predicting we’ve had this season  it’s getting as badly run as the club  we change prediction pages more than we do managers and that’s saying something
