I'm doing OK on that but it's tough to remember to actually make my picks. I've forgotten to make the Thursday game pick in time for a couple weeks now, I think. Some of those have been easy picks, too. Blaaaah.

It might be cool to see a column of actual selections made or something. Just some way to interpret the numbers better. A percentage of correct picks could be a neat column for something like that. So when one actually makes picks, how often are they correct? Both columns could be sortable for the different perspectives.

I'll see what I can do, but currently if you have picked a winner for a game, it is indicated with a rectangle and this UserPostedImage icon. Additionally, there is a information box that shows how many picks you have to make yet.

I think this would encourage people to only pick the "easy" games to increase their ranking. Maybe this could be an extra option for "Advanced Stats" or something.


Making your picks is very easy, you can even use your phone. Big Grin You have until I think two hours prior to kickoff to make the picks.

Nice, but does not display the same as you have displayed here . In one I rank at # 13 and # 26 in another . % has he ranked higher, both are valid, but the % rank allows for games not predicted. Fun activity, what do I get when I win ?

Very cool, Zero! Obviously the games picked is the best metric, but at least this still makes it interesting for those that may forget a week here and there throughout the season. Helps keep the motivation. Good job!

That is a good point that I didn't think of. That's probably why it's better that percentage is only a second metric with total correct picks being the best metric.
