  1. I'm just seeing the "heart over matter" article. @John Gunning, you should use my DB more often.

    Banzuke for Aki 2018

    Examples please for "Rikishis better than Ura haven gone 6-1 or worse"? Anyone can say that but I don't quite recall such an instance. I'd say 7-0 is indeed very likely given the disparity in skill between Ura and Sandanme. Of course if Ura is close to his old form.

    Pre-bout torikumi records can be wrong in rare cases, not sure why. That corrects itself after the bout. I think it looks ok now.

    You meant Motoyamamotoyama, right?

    He didn't mention juryo bouts as a requirement at all, just "juryo wrestler" which obviously points to the most likely bouts taking part in makuuchi.

    Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Nah, while watching the video I wondered if it really was okuridashi, because Chiyomaru was out BEFORE the push already, watch his foot. So I'm not surprised at all the kimarite is different.

    You are correct, and I'd correct his shikona if I get detailed info about the used kanji. The Kyokai uses the hiragana because the kanji apparently isn't in the unicode set (it was much worse in the past when they still used Shift-JIS), so I'm thinking that 靏 also isn't the correct choice, but an approximation too... maybe it's a better choice though, but hard to tell without a close look on the actual banzuke.

    Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Wait what? You cite this (marked bold) and claim this as verifying your stance? Really? The bold phrase pretty clearly is beyond the basho's limitations and exactly fitting for exceptional cases like shin-makuuchi (actually the most regular and obvious example) and, yes, cases like Aminishiki.

    When does an “Ozeki run” begin?

    Thanks, I was just about to post this query. Phrasing such absolute statements is just hitting you back in the face when there are so many counter examples.

    Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    You really asking?

    Trivia bits

    Here are all such instances: Goeido in Aki 2007, days 14 and 15 (like Endo against Hakuho on day 14, and guess who Hakuho's day 15 opponent is tomorrow?) Takanosato in Nagoya 1980, days 13 and 14 Futagodake in Haru 1974, days 12 and 13 (the other way around with the first bout on day 12 and the last bout on the next day)

    Fixed... Edit: I did a rather big SQL and found 15 more of these weird musubi bouts, mostly from 1989 to 1993, all sorted properly now.

    What do you mean with this? If you look more closely, you'll see that for these basho no lower division results are available. Maybe I am missing something?

    Not really dummy data, it's the basho table entry with data like venue, start and end date which was still missing. I added the next 18 basho now according to the dates on the NSK site.
  17. Doitsuyama

    Sumo Reference Updates

    Yeah, yeah, the NSK website has changed their ajax output bigtime. I took the website offline while reworking the grabber. Actually, their changes make for much neater code as the parsing is much easier now, I basically had to remove all the unnecessary stuff and use their data structure. I'm not sure how the kyujo number for returning rikishi is done here but we'll see soon enough I guess.
  18. Doitsuyama

    Sumo Reference Updates

    Yes, that's a bug - the second choice actually is selecting currently active rikishi (no intai yet). I had two choices, remove this entry or changing the text to "Active". I decided to do the latter even if the choice of the current basho in the box "Active in Basho?" is very similar.

    ATTENTION: Doitsuyama

    Look, I don't really know who McBugger is. At least in terms of a sumogames login which is the absolut minimum needed information for me to create a Bench Sumo player and associate it with the login. So (like for any new player) please include his sumogames name or email, then I would be able to do that.

    Tochiakagi might be ahead of Toyonoshima here, but they are not really in the same class. Toyonoshima had 5 jun-yusho and appeared in a yusho kettei-sen, he probably is already the leader in such a category.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    I'm not sure at all, if you look at the connections (with LiveHttpHeader for example) there is an access cookie which I believe is new. The old server was a cloud server which had several network related limitations in the past, so it could very well been hit by one of these limitations. It could be an intentional IP block though which would be a problem as I can't just switch servers many more times. Another solution in case of sustained IP blocks would be the option to enter daily results (like video links), so anybody viewing the bouts could enter the results, making the database potentially faster than the NSK site then...
  23. Doitsuyama

    Sumo Reference Updates

    I had to move the sumogames websites to a different (and better) server as the old server somehow wasn't able to view the sumo.or.jp website. The new DNS entry might not be there for everybody at once, but usually is available in a matter of a few hours, up to a day. If you see any hickups (which I actually expect with such a big change) please write here or in the games bugs section. Entry for the sumo games should be possible now.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    Well, the Kyokai has changed the site design and programming again, and this time I'm not able to grab the pages automatically. When I find some time, I certainly can update the new banzuke, but it's not looking good for timely grabbing of pairings and results during the basho. If someone finds a way to capture the data from the redesigned NSK page, well, any help is welcome to direct me to do this.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    Right, that is not going by the same rules here. Since jun-yusho isn't official and pretty much made up from me I can make my own rules... I feel someone with same win differential, but more draws should be ahead, so I did remove the jun-yusho for Komagatake in 1910.01. It's just 1 win for wins, 0.5 wins for draws, 0 for losses and absences in my mind, as sumo generally isn't very kind to absences.
