We’ve had a few issues with people saving their scores over the last few weeks so Dave has come up with a solution that should suit the majority if not all of us!
“we can add an option at the top of the page called “Auto Save” which when selected (can be enabled as default) will save each change on the page as edits are made (very much like how the admin pages work at the moment). This will eliminate the possibility of users forgetting to click “Save” as it will save every modification as it’s made (suggest highlighting modified scores with a colour change too, and clear this when saved for visual confirmation).”
Sound good? Good! It’s getting implemented.
But until then please CHECK that you’ve saved your scores – DOUBLE check even!!
Also, on a darker note, our algorithm experts have spotted a few cases of “blanket scoring” in the last few weeks. We’ve had a few (stern) words with the perpetrators so it will cease immediately…
Please be aware this practice is frowned upon in PAS as it’s competition based on what you THINK the score will be and NOT what you HOPE it might be (in the past we’ve had to reduce points awarded for 0-0s, 2-2s, 3-0s, 3-1s etc because of players abusing the system) and we want to keep it that way.
If you want to “beat the system” there’s loads of bookies & online comps (like Soccer 6) etc you can take on but please don’t count PAS in that number…
Blanket scoring? 10 games with the same scoreline – highly unlikely! Four or five games in a row with the same scoreline? Hmmmmm….
Please don’t do it as it will just encourage everyone to do it and then the whole competition fails. We can’t stop you doing it, but we can give you your entry fee back and politely ask you leave…
