Hmm, I see. As for winners, Marco would step down in 2016 since its last races would not count, but there should not be other changes; more differences would arise in the podium, though.

To be honest, I have no idea how the newbie league code works, but it seems to cover all the pipsqueaks for which...
Code: [Select]
pipsqueaks.joined + INTERVAL 18 MONTH > season.year . date('-m-04')
The code refers to the 4th day of the current month, whenever the season scores are recalculated.

I suppose that was meant to say "all the pipsqueaks who joined within 18 months from the start of this race", but races don't start on the 4th of the month anymore, so that can be wrong of up to 4 weeks. And if anything changes and we recalculate the scores for an earlier race, the set of newbie pipsqueaks could be disturbed... leading to a messed up scoreboard.

So I'll likely have to fix the date filtering, then fix the whole "recalculate for a previous race/season", then recalculate the past five seasons and hope that scoreboards don't change too much :'(

Yesterday Seeker asked about not being in the newbie league anymore, this is consistent with the 18-month period, but:

  • in the season standings, he has been wiped out; Heretic is listed as taking 12 points in C210, while in fact he took only 11;
  • a similar phenomenon also happened to me in 2015, but there is more: Cas is listed as participant in the season standings, while he does not count as a newbie in any of the races! This can have something to do with the fact that he registered in 2005, but he posted his first replay only in 2015, and maybe the 18 months are counted starting from a different date in the two cases.

How do we have to count correctly the points? Note also that Marco joined in January 2015, but according to season standings, he took points in the newbie league until the end of 2016 (that is, for a period longer than 18 months), and FinRok joined in March 2016, while taking points in that league until the end of 2017 (also here, for more than one year and a half); in both cases, the results in the single races are correctly counted only up to 1.5 years. Maybe the latter ones make more sense...

Last time we raced at 17:00 Buenos Aires / 18:00 Brasilia / 20:00 London / 21:00 Rome and Budapest. Because of coordination delays, it usually takes an hour, or 1.5h if we race two tracks.

I could be interested too, but in this period I can't assure my presence for a precise date and time, even at a short notice...  :-\

I don't know if it would be compliant with new European privacy regulations ( ;D ), but for the rest it is a great idea.  8)

I'm interested. I suppose we would shoot for somewhere later in the European evening so it would still be reasonable in South America? (Depending on interest of course.)

Time to get one organised again ;D
For those who are new, read about the "Le Stunts" format that we usually follow.
Stunts Related Programs / [idea] Replay auto-upload
« Last post by dreadnaut on February 13, 2019, 09:32:29 AM »
I was thinking about live races while having breakfast, and this came to my mind. I'll dump it here, not to forget.

Uploading a replay for a race is a multi-step operation, nothing too long, but seconds! are really important at the end of a live race. So what if there was a little program that looks at the Stunts directory, and every time a .RPL file is created or modified, it uploads it to ZakStunts?

The website should have an endpoint to allow automated uploads, and keep only the most recent 15-20 replays to save space. pipsqueaks would have a new page with a list of their uploaded replays, and the option to Publish, Download, or Delete each.

Bonus, a "Team mode" where the list is shared among the members of the team.

P.S. bonus factoid: when there's 14 negative points to distribute between a portion of 50%, one of 30% and one of 20% the bonus algorithm will apparently go with 8, 4 and 2 points respectively.

The points removed from the podium cars are rounded down, so with 14 point the cars in the top three positions would receive 14 * 0.50 = 7, 14 * 0.30 = 4, and 14 * 0.20 = 2. But those number sum up to 13, so the "rounding" point is always assigned to the car in first position.
