Permanent competition revival
« on: May 30, 2014, 05:39:04 PM »
I've been looking into automating the permanent competition, and it's not too difficult. The only thing, I think it's a bit... uninteresting: most tracks have already incredible records, probably all driving Indy, stuck there for more than ten years. Then again, there's no information about which cars were used.

So I thought about this:
  • we archive the current permanent competition
  • we clear up the scoreboards, and restart with the 6 original tracks
  • I add automatic upload, and store the replays on the website
  • these replays are public and downloadable
  • scoreboards filtered by car
  • every year, we add a new track!

Everyone can of course resubmit their original replays, and they'll start at the top of the scoreboard, but these time the replays will be there for everyone to see :)

1, If there's no sign for the car, it was Indy.
2, We should keep the old records. They are strong, but not THAT strong.
3, Closed tracks should stay. ;D
4, No public replays, please!

Yes, good idea. Let's get rid of the closed tracks. They're completely arbitrary. And let's have public replays. We're too far into the future for secrecy.
But we can't be quite sure.

They're completely arbitrary.

But still, they are part of permanent tracks' history. Would it really disturb you to have a bit more active permanent scoreboards?

They are indeed history, that's why I would archive the whole page. And we can reintroduce them in the future, but I think that a competition starting with 12 tracks would be too "diluted" for the number of pipsqueaks around.

- I would like to stay with the records. Anyway automatic upload replays and publishing them it's ok for me.
- Closed tracks are nonsens but if you like keep them.
- Erase the GHOSTS from the records.

Don't be so strict with yourself. Chulk, Cordi and the others should stay on the list. ;D

Btw I would miss the closed tracks mainly because I can beat some of those records. ;D I mean Skid's, Helen's and Cherry's Closed... and maybe Bernie's Closed, too.

My opinion:

YES to deleting closed tracks
YES to archiving old records and to start with a clean scoreboard. Old records should be clearly visible though.
YES to public replays
YES to car filtering - this would add a lot of extra layers for fun racing
 
not sure about every year a new track. Which track? Maybe the best ZakStunts track voted for the year?

and YES to let all original opponents have a go on the tracks and we submit their times. :)
