Please visit the 2012 DPCSTATS site and let me know what you think. Originally, at the first of the year I had planed to do this weekly, however, several members (including myself) decided it would be best if the stats were updated with each challenge but show the user how he/she is doing on a yearly basis; not weekly.

I have the site setup so that you can view user stats in five ways:
1. By Rank
2. By User Name
3. By Entries
4. By Average
5. By Score
The links or on the left side of the page under Sort By.

How the stats work.As a user enters challenges the number of challenges will be recorded along with their average. Each user is ranked in two sub-categories, Average and Score. Each sub-category will be percentile based. This means that the user with the highest value in the sub-categories will receive 100% and the user with the lowest value will receive 0%.

The two categories are combined and divided by two to get the users total %, this will determine the users rank.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Great stuff Scott, the scoring system seems a bit complex for my tiny brain, not complaining though but I have no idea how I got in that 2nd spot :)

It's quite simple actually. Here is how it works.

1. Average: This is your year-to-date average.
The highest average YTD is 7.4576 (100%) and the lowest is 2.7727 (0%). Your average YTD is 6.4436 (92.65%).

2. Score: Score is your year-to-date entries * year-to-date average.
The most YTD entries is 28 * 4.9467(100%) and the lowest is 1 * 2.7727(0%). Your have entered 20 challenges * 6.4436 YTD average (98.79%).

3. Formula: YTD AVG Percentile (92.65%) + YTD SCORE Percentile (98.79%) / 2 = Total Percentile 95.72% (YTD 2nd Place). Users are ranked by their TOTAL PERCENTILE.
