Sorry about the problem in the first release of January's results. I have went back and corrected the problems (hopefully all of them) and the standings and points should be accurate. One thing you will notice different is the "FSM Improvement Points" column. Instead of giving each use the max each month I formulated it to reflect the most points that could be received in a year (180) and divided by how many months into the 2008 season we are at the time. This will help clarify the standing.

You can visit the 2008 FSM here.

If you find any problems or have any questions feel free to contact me in this thread or by PM. Again sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Scott

Just took a quick look and it still looks as though your script isn't working. My data is still missing altogether, even though I was very definitely in the Jan FS.

Sorry!

Sorry!

Yes you are in the FSM. Let me look and see if I placed an incorrect formula. I will look real quick, and be right back.

Thanks for letting me know.

This looks much better that way, even though I don´t like that people are getting handicap.

For beginners like myself this gives us a little bit more of a fair chance to "Rise to the Occasion" in the rankings against the all time "pros".

Let me check and see whats wrong. The macro I'm using is very strict. If I even have a space after your name it will not recognize your score. I believe that may be the problem. Give me a minute or two and I should have it corrected.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

21.gif nikolaos your score should appear on 2008 FSM ranking now. Sorry for the problem.

21_F.gif sulamk , I don't know what to say. Everyone seems to be able to access the site by the link I provided. You may already tried this but in case you have not copy the following and place in your browser address bar and see if this works.

//home.mchsi.com/~scottwhiddon/2008Jan.htm

Let me know if that works. If not I will contact my IP provider and ask them why. Sorry for the problem.

Thanks everyone for your participation. If you see any incorrect or omitted information please let me know and I will correct the problem.
