    Designed by yours truly. Made by the best! These are the darts I've played with since 2005!

     New way to submit your SEWA Practice Scores!

    Team SEWA NewsCraigB writes "Yes, that's right! I'm "retiring" from the SEWA Rankings update position. Maybe this will give me more time to actually practice myself?

    What started as a few games under Black Horse's direction before becoming my baby began with about 18 members. It soon grew to double that and a new method complete with different color "belts" (like they give out for martial arts) was adopted.

    Back then, it could take a week or two just to get a few updates, now, with almost 120(!) members participating, I was getting over 20 in just a few days! Even with all of my shortcuts, the last update I performed took me over two hours.

    To my rescue came Mark (a.k.a., PDL) driven by the fine suggestions of slave task master Mike (a.k.a., On and Gone ;-) to create a better way.

    Well, that better way is here now and ready for all to use! It should look very similar to the table I used to maintain and is accessible at the bottom right of the home page. Just look for the links section called "Member Stuff" at the bottom of the link areas on the right of your screen and you'll see a link called "Practice Rankings" that you can use.

    Once you click on the link you'll see all of the scores that have been entered so far (a few from the old table are already there, but others still need to be transferred - or, you can just enter your own scores back in yourself). The last table of my updates will remain as a Sticky thread in the Practice, Strategy and Finishes forum until all scores from it have been entered.

    The new table has some error checking (including reminding you that Bob's 27 scores must be odd), will handle new participants and display belt graduations.

    Now don't think that we've left you all by yourselves! A record of the entries is kept so we can track the progress of members and to correct any errors that are spotted. Remember that you're only hurting yourself if you enter inflated scores - this is meant to be a tool to help you progress! (Alien status might need to be checked for any really high score entered! Hehe...)

    Feel free to use this whenever you get a new high score (no need to PM me anymore ;-) and I encourage all members who have NOT participated to consider it. I've heard from many that it really helped them improve their games.

    The rules and a sample game of Black Horse's RTW are still in the Practice, Strategy and Finishes forum.

    Although I will redirect all update request PM's that I get to the topic about the new table (since I can't update your scores for you), don't hesitate to send me a PM if you have any questions about the new table.

    Enjoy!

    Craig B.

    Note: This is an awesome addition to SEWA! Along with the new Member Stuff block which also includes the tournament Calendar. Excellent!"

    I remember when you couldn't leave my rounded off scoring, Craig, you OCD'ed it into an exact science! LOL. It was immediately apparent that you were the person to run the Rankings. Very cool how you grasped the numbers like Rainman and made the system into a very professional standings board.

    I borrowed the idea from Erik's original SEWA player rankings and you made it into the fantastic system it is today. Your graphics and Belts and enormous amounts of time and effort turned the whole thing into an amazing project. Despite tons of entries, you never did let them backlog for long, and your dedication with the updates kept people very interested and rewarded for their practice, which was of course the entire idea.

    Excellent, excellent work and spirit, CB! If you truly are freed up from it now, I look forward to what you produce next!! Have I told you about my ideas for......

    Ok, thanks to even more work by Mark (pdl), all of the remaining participants from the old rankings have now been added to the new table!

    As of this moment there are 137(!) members reporting their SEWA Practice game scores!!! There would have been more, but we had three members who joined only to send me their scores and, since they never posted, had their usernames removed (at least that's my guess anyway).

    Thanks to all who have participated! :-)

    Wow, as of today we're up to 146 participants!

    And all of them are wondering if Petro and/or Taechon has it in them to make Brown... ;-)
