GTB Natsu 2022- Results!!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Due to the virus and to my continuing depression, laziness, seniority, social distancing and flatulence, there will be no special GTB invite sketch this time Apologies to the person waiting for this. A heads-up- less than three weeks this time so do it NOW!!

This is a formal invitation to play the "Guess the Banzuke" game!! 24 years, 144 bashos. Please play.

Game rules: Guess the Banzuke. Simple. You get two points for a bulls-eye and one point for just getting the rank right. You get no points for wearing pink clothes. Tiebreakers - Most total guesses, then we check the banzuke backwards - getting the lower half right will be important.  The most correct guesses in the last ten places will win the tiebreaker. If still tied, we go up a ranking at a time like a penalty shootout. If still tied, I suggest the highest bribe wins. preferably in Euro.. It's up to you to check if you are on the list of entries. It's going to be your fault if you don't notice that your entry went missing in the Internet void. No late entries will be expected or accepted. Those are the rules, and the rules will never be changed. Just like the dohyo will never be lowered.

For rules, standings and the Onami brothers' secret chanko recipe: http://www.dichne.com/Guess.htm

For the nifty entry form: http://sumodb.sumoga...b/GTBEntry.aspx

For the "new" archives: http://sumodb.sumoga...gtbarchive.aspx

See if you are on the entry list: http://sumodb.sumogames.de/gtb/GTBEntryList.aspx

Deadline: Monday, April 18th, 2022 at 18:00 GMT ("Get Me Tea!!") - PLEASE NOTE-THIS IS ONE WEEK BEFORE THE OFFICIAL BANZUKE ANNOUNCEMENT!!

Special thanks to Andoreasu who runs it, Doitsuyama who automates and maintains it and to retirement!

I nearly made it in before the website went down. Armed with a spreadsheet this time! I expect worse results than thought possible, but maybe I've stumbled upon the formula.... beats not having a plan at all, I guess.

EDIT: I think I've managed to submit it, the website at least said "successful entry".

The site has been down almost every time I've checked for almost a week now. Is there some kind of backup for entry? This is way beyond the usual "enter ASAP because the site is unreliable". If not, no worries, it'll just have to be a very low turnout this time until something is done about the site.

I came here to say the same thing!

We're screwed. You can try sending me an entry to motidi@yahoo.com  I'll try to do everything by hand. Then. I'll kill myself.

Wait, the deadline is tomorrow, right? I've been checking the site every time I've been near the computer, but no luck so far. Will keep trying and email as a backup.

Well, I sent Moti an e-mail with my banzuke bet, but just in case, I'll post it in here publicly so you can laugh at my attempts at getting in the minds of the banzuke makers.

I'm failing miserably to post it in tabular form as a text, so may as well put the .png to see what it does.

Got mine in. My apologies to Moti if it isn't in a good format....and also for contributing to the pile of entries he's going to have to do by hand...

The entry site is not currently up.  You know what to do... I was hoping that you did not have to kill yourself because I love the videos and will greatly miss them.

 

Entry was e-mailed.  Keeping you on a special watch.

It's occasionally up for a few minutes, I managed to get the entry form to load yesterday, but I couldn't submit it and I've restarted my computer since then, so I've lost the form. I've emailed my entry but I'll keep trying until the deadline.

Edit: I managed to enter via the form, got the confirmation email as well.

For future reference, the forum coding seems to like it best if you copypaste from Excel into Google Sheets, then from Google Sheets into the reply editor. That's the "easiest" way I've found to force the reply editor to respect tabular formatting of text.

I've found that using Edge works perfectly copying from Excel.  Firefox causes an image to be uploaded instead, which really sucks.  I haven't tried Chrome, which is probably what you're referring to; it would make sense that that browser would well with Google sheets, whereas Excel would work with Microsoft's browser.

Pasting from Excel seems to work but it doesn't keep more sophisticated formatting like borders, unlike with Google Sheets.

And I am using Edge, which nowadays is built on the same Chromium base as Chrome anyway. So some other chicanery is at work here.

Thanks for the advice about tabulating and the use of different browsers, fellas, I'll try to keep it in mind for future reference.

BTW, I didn't manage to find an opening where I didn't get 404'd, so sorry about that. I guess I shouldn't be procrastinating and leaving it all for the last minute (or week) but whatchugonnado.

If there is no plan to solve the db instability issues, might it be feasible to move the game entry method?
