So... when?
Maybe for next year? ;D  I've just moved country, changed job, and my laptop is slowly exploding. A lot of things need to stabilise before I can find time for that, sorry!

It would be fun to race on permanent tracks with the expected New Year's hangover. :D

I think it's interesting that all the records have been static for five years. Have we reached the limit?
But we can't be quite sure.

Nope. I could beat some closed records in 2011.

Yes, so all SIX records have been static for nearly 5 years  :P
But we can't be quite sure.

Let's say it wasn't interesting enough.

Well, I'm not gonna beat any of them.

Default: don't know how
Bernie's: already got it
Joe's: don't know how
Cherry's: too much RH and un-rewindable replays
Helen's: too much RH and un-rewindable replays
Skid's: already got it
But we can't be quite sure.

Don't forget about the "new" permanent circuits: the best tracks of each years.

I suppose there would be two records for those - one with Indy and the other with the winning car of the race?

Sorry, I was busy with other stuff. But now we can store replays on the website, so it should be easier to store replays for the permanent competition as well.

Let's say in a month or two ;D

edit: maybe less, on Friday I should finally get a keyboard —it's been hell coding without one!

Hey... any news of this idea?  It's a really good one!  I think ideally, it should be exactly as proposed by Dreadnaut on the first post, with the add-on by Zak of the additional track being voted among the tracks of the year. I would add that only pipsqueaks that participated in at least a certain number of the track that year could vote. Keeping the closed ones?   Mmm... if many people want them, OK, but I don't think that's necessary.

Well, six years passed. I had mentioned a year ago or so that I was interested in taking the work of setting up a new permanent competition. Now I am building into this idea with R4K. Earlier, I just wanted to do this because I saw you guys were busy with other things and I thought "I can do this and I want it to be a reality, so why not?". But now there's also another reason: I want to rewrite R4K and it comes in handy if the base code allows for several races and scoreboards being handled together. In other words, I want to rebuild the tournament on top of the permament competition system.

I would like to:
- Start with the tracks that come with Stunts, not including the closed ones
- Allow for posting tracks freely. In practice, there could be as many tracks as posted, but the ones that have more replays will appear first, so it wouldn't be messy. The closed tracks as well as any other track could of course be posted.
- Start with empty scoreboards. However, any old replay can be re-posted. There's a point here with the matter of authorship I would like to discuss to prevent easy cheating.
- Facilitate information exchange so that, if the Permanent Competition in ZakStunts is later on updated in the way planned in 2014, the tracks and replays can easily be incorporated and possibly exchange results between the sites.
- Allow posting with any car and any style (R4K-OWOOT, GAR, free-style, RH, NoRH, etc.) but making sure it's later possible to filter results so that one can check things like "fastest lap on Default with the Lancia in OWOOT". This way, there's a point in racing anything and not just Indy free-style. That is, you can set all kinds of records.
- For each style characteristic (say, OWOOT or NoRH), there would be three possible status configurations: Verified, Claimed, and No.

Again, I would like to do this to help and I'll be happy to hand the information and system if this is later to be implemented in ZakStunts. Also, if there's a plan my idea interferes with, no problem. Just tell me how I can help and I change the bearing or focus on something else. I would like to read opinions and suggestions.
