AO Skan

Post by PeterSkan » Jan Fri 04, 2019 2:33 pm

Hi all - just poking around the new site and seeing how it works. Looking forward to another year of SKANs here :)

and listen with deep emotion,
but not with the whining, the pleas of the coward;
listen-your final pleasure-to the voices,
to the exquisite music of that strange procession

Ace seems to have the Skan working over here...
I made the top32 lists, I did set up the game, and submitted a provisional team....

Encountered no bugs....


Edit: added some scores (one of my players beating the other)... the fields of the player losing went grey and points were added correctly...

Looks as if we are ready to go :-)

RandomSkan forgot his password.

Of course this can't be typical ...

Here is his team [The Randomizers]:

1. Tsitsipas
2. Goffin
3. Verdasco
4. Buzarnescu
5. Giorgi
6. Tsurenko

41 teams so far...

We had a late start over here (due to the work on the new site), and adverting the event on other places (i.e., on tennisforum, for instance), was later than usual, so I guess that likely explains the lower turn-out at this moment.

let's see if we gan get to 60 teams by closing time (in about 6 hours).

I can't do any of that team entry.. I am just not strong enough to sit up and do all that. I am barely getting out of bed after 3 days, knocked out flat by a nasty flu.

Ace,

Sorry to hear about your illness.

Re Skan team entries, I think Grav' and Peter Skan are doing the honors. So, you have help in running the show.

As far as the other bugs that are o/s, they don't appear to be significant problems that the Prediction game and the Skan contest cannot continue. Minor inconveniences that can be addressed later at some point. You've done a great job handling the transition alone and at significant personal cost (near 1k for the new site, didn't know that). Yet, the most important thing is for you to regain your health. Get well soon and take care....
