2010 DPC USER RANKING
updated June 9th, 2010

Week 22 has been updated!

I have updated the way you can view the results. I have included an index page with a calender that shows each week; click on the week # to view that weeks results. This will help users understand what dates the week corresponds with. Also you will be able to see what challenges and what stage they are in up to two-weeks in advance.

Please take time to view the new layout and let me know if it helps.

Thanks,
Scott

I have spent the last week updating the rankings. In doing so there have been a few changes and features added.

The main change was determining which challenge should represent the fist challenge of the year. Previously I had been going by the first challenge *announced* at the beginning of the year. This did not match up with userís profile; evident by users PM'ing me saying that some of their challenge entries were not counted.

I have changed the criteria of what determines the first challenge of the year. It will be the first challenge of the year with an ending *submission* date on or after the first of the year. This will match everyoneís profile page as DPChallenge.com also uses this date when recording user challenge on everyoneís profile page under challenges entered.

When you go to the 2010 DPC USERS RANKINGS page, the homepage will show the TOP 25 users as of the current week. At the bottom you will see a link to view full results. On the full result pages you can view each week by click on the [back] or [next] button.

You are AWESOME Scott !!!!! Thanks.

I hope I have made navigation easy for everyone. However the full results pages will not be formatted with color or lines to conserve homepage space. When Iím able to purchase a webhost I will be able to format all pages for a cleaner and easier viewing experience.

Iím going link to the new 2010 site; it includes week 16. After rollover tonight I will upload week 17. Each week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday and the week number is based on a normal calendar week.

Thanks everyone for your participation at DPChallenge.com. I hope you enjoy the new features.If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

Regards,

At least you're not heading backwards like me... and... I predict you'll see some positive movement in next weeks table.

Scott... you're a legend! :)

I like the "static in the table" thing. I seem to not be dropping like a stone like I feel I deserve :)
04/28/2010 03:47:38 AM · #9
I dropped 6 places to #797. Thanks for posting this, Scott. Thanks a lot.

I thought last week was week #17 and I was 2nd then? Now it says last week I was 3rd? I don't understand stats! LOL

I believe this inconsistency might be a side effect of the new definition of week 1.

Yes, I took the points total out because several people said it was confusing. There still their, just hidden to see if it helps people view their entries, average, and percentile better. The total score is still there.

I thought I would try it this week to see if people like it better. If not I will go back to showing all the point columns.

Fair enough. I found it helpful in explaining where the Total Points came from... but that's me. Scott... have I told you lately that YOU ROCK!

Is it just me or does the list get stuck at 126th place?
