Ok. The season is under way and the first Guess the Grid result is in. We had a fantastic response to this first round. A competition record 285 entries. Thanks very much for your enthusiasm and support. GTG is getting stronger by year. That said lets get on with reporting this weeks result. The season has started with a good result. Top score of 23 going to Apex. We have a tie for 2nd place with three entrants scoring 21, ghostrider, Mikael, and scheivlak. The average of all guesses scored 13 which would have placed it 172nd along with 28 others. the average score was 14. Most points were gained from picking Fisichella in 8th and the most points were lost by picking Villeneuve in any position.

This season there is also a few webpages to help you follow your results. If you click here you will go to a web page that displays how your season is shaping up. This page includes links to other pages that show how your score was calculated, where you stand in the season rankings and past race results. There are also links back to the top 100 results for the previous 2 years. Have a look and give me your feed back. Let me know if the pages take too long to load, links are broken anything else you want to know. Lets try to get these working for you.

Now, for the information you have all been waiting for:

Thanks for the hard work :up:
I took a look to the link, I don't know if its my screen or what, but I have problems reading the entrant names, due to the color of it...
The Fantasy link is not working, maybe it's not ready yet.
Congrats :up: :up:

Great work Garth, great work. If it wasn't for _________ I probably would have done way better!!!!

I suspect the Vliieneuve angle was a negative while for those who picked Massa (I didn't) were rewarded.

Again, thanks (the links page is in a soft aqua and has some background issues Garth, making it somewhat hard to see the names)

Can I bookmark that page??? (ie will it remain throughout the year at that spot on Atlas?)

garth:

All links work and it doesn't take too long to load. I see the link to how the score was calculated is done in the order posted. That is good as well. Just not sure about the colour scheme - the grid has this contrasting background, making it difficult to read.

Great job and very appreciated.

Oh, for edification - if someone did not post as per yours and gerry nasser's instructions, did they get counted?? Just wondering.

Thanks for the feedback. I will try to come up with a better colour for the unvisited links. Yes all who entered get counted. As long as most people enter correctly then I don't have any issues. Those that use other formats to enter are quite few so it is not too hard to amend to my preferred format.

Yes you can bookmark the page. It will be there all season long.

garth, in the list that shows ones picks and scores for the round on your site, the placings are numbered 1-2-3-4-5-6-5-6-5-6... Slightly weird imo :)

I will have a look at that. Not sure what has gone wrong there!

Logic

You posted after I posted my "Entries Closed" announcement. Entries close before first practise on the Friday. It is "Guess the Result" that closes just before Qualifying.

I will check with the final arbitor - gerry nassar - to see if we can accept your entry. You will have to wait until mid week as Gerry is at the Grand Prix.

Placings numbers now fixed but the page seems to take an age to load now. I might have to split it in 2 or something.

Skylark

Can't seem to change the colour on the unvisited links. I will need to go back to my HTML text to figure that one out.

As a former champion it's great to see this competition getting more popular every year. Thanks garth_b for that great web-site.
:up: :up: :up:

My start for this season was rather good: 17 points. The first race is allways tough and I didn't beleive Ferrari would get the front row with last year's car.

Bring on Malaysia!!!

Guess my Fisi tip did pay off!! :clap:

This is probably as high as I ever will get, but I will go down with a fight at least!

I am ahead of SeanValen, my tip for the final victory. :wave:

139th.

But I used last years Brain just hoping for a reasonable finish. :drunk:

I was in a rush when I did my tips and I forgot to put Barrichello in the top 10. :lol: :drunk: I don't think it affected my score that much, though.

Fisichella was my choice as well for 8th as well, everyone seems to be one with Fisi:lol Fisi says use the Force Luke:smoking:


Well done on second place, I'm very pleased with 4th. Thanks for the tip, it's guess the grid, anything can happen:up:

garth_b: This is probably your problem:
<style>



	.back1 { background-color: "#D6DCE4"; text-align: "center"}

	.back2 { background-color: "#E6DACE" }

	.back3 { background-color: "#E0E8F0" }

	.ft1 { Font-family: "Arial"; font-size: "1" }

[b]	a:link { color: "00ffff" }[/b]

[b]	a:visited { color: "ff0000" }[/b]

</style>

Try making those 'f's into, say, '6's or 'a's or something :) Might also want to add #s infront, although I'm not sure it makes a difference, but it's 'cleaner'...

Also I noticed that there's a missing on the links in the first column... Shouldn't matter too much as they're all followed by s, but it could cause problems on some browsers (neither of mine though, I tried IE and Opera)...

Thanks Bjorn, I thought those codes should mean yellow and red. I don't know why it is displaying turqoise for the unvisited links. I made some changes and it affected my site map links but had no effect on the table. Infact I have a great deal of difficulty getting formatting to work in tables at all. I need to do a bit more reading. The first chapter of HTML for Dummies doesn't cover things like that :lol:

re the 's. Yes I know technically I should have them. I am using excel to cut the code by using a combination of fixed and variable data. I saw I was missing those after I loaded the pages. Trying to decipher the excel formulas to figure out where the should go is proving more difficult than it should. :confused:

Any way, thanks for your advice. Any further help you can give me would be welcome. :up:
