You thought wrong ...

I really think this can be very successful, but we need a lot of help getting the word out. The Rivalries forum isn't exactly the best place to get the word out, but hopefully things will pick up when the real season 11 starts.

Ok just to check if my glitch was fixed, right now( friday 8:40PM EST) it says:
03 Days, 23 Hours, 19 Minutes, 10 Seconds

sound right?

That does seem right 8pm EST is midnight GMT with the 1 hour DST difference...however if I'm not mistaken, javascript works off the time on the user's computer...if thats true if your time is off then so will the countdown clock

Well since we're already 3 weeks in and I still haven't been verified for either of the leagues I'm giving up. I love what your doing for the community codemann but I don't think I'm gonna be back until I see a front page announcement or something of the sort.

I verified you, did you sign up after I verified you?
EDIT: I think there was a problem with converting from the Hard league to expert...I should have never created that Hard League, I should have known it was going to get dropped right away

I really appreciate the effort you put into this Codemann, so I would like to leave my thoughts about the whole thing so you can use it as feedback in case you decide to stick with this thing.

Don't take this as any personal reflection on you, Codemann, but I really thought this would work out better. I thought it was set up nicely, sign-up was a breeze, score input was a cinch, and it's a really good idea for the community (we need this). But on the other hand, the participation level has been a problem since Day One (maybe there's a reason SH doesn't do this anymore?), several members were confused about the timing system (including myself), and the scoring system (to me, anyway) is so convoluted that I don't even feel like trying to figure out how I did for the week.

Again, I really appreciate the effort, and I hope this thing can take off regardless of the rocky beginning. I'll be keeping up with this thread to see which direction this thing takes from here.

I do like the feedback, its good to hear how people feel about these leagues...yeah participation sucks and that is a big problem directly affecting the success...yes, the timing system will need to be looked at more thoroughly and figure out a more consistent way to show how much time is left...as for the scoring system, its the same as how it has been for the past few leagues so I'm not sure how I could better that...a better way to see how you did for the week is clicking on whatever week you want then you can click on whatever song you want and it will show you everyone's scores

Things that should improve next time (if there is a next time):
-Better Countdown clock
-Get rid of qualification round (just use week 1 scores to determine)
-More clarification about the difference between verifying and signing up for a league
-Have an FAQ, not like people read those anyways but will help with repeating myself 100 times
-MORE ADVERTISEMENT/PUBLICITY (I WILL NEED EVERYONE'S HELP WITH THIS)
-Ability to submit proofs (for playoffs)

C'mon man, you're already permarocked, why would you put yourself in a spot to have something done worse than that...last thing we need is to have this thread locked up...Jizzle, the banners great!

I said something similar to this in a different thread, but the best way to get the word out and keep people from forgetting about the leagues mid-season would be to...

a) Put a front page announcement up for a week to let people know that they're coming back and when they can start signing up and other rules (i.e. where to sign up, # of leagues you can sign up for, etc.).
b) Put up another front page announcement for a couple weeks after saying that you have a couple weeks to sign up for whatever leagues they want to.

ONCE LEAGUES START (this is the most important part)

c) They need a spot on the front page just for leagues (maybe between the countdown to the new games and the "Guitar Hero Metallica: Now Shipping" ad) that countdowns to when score are due. I think that this is definitely the biggest thing we need if we want it to be successful. I've been doing these leagues for the past 6 seasons and the biggest problem is that people simply have a lot of stuff going in their lives and just forget about them (it even happened to me during week 2 this season and I've never forgotten). If they make it stand out (make a box around it or something?) and if it's constantly counting down to the deadline then people will notice it because it's moving as well. Now, every time someone goes to scorehero, they will see the countdown and remember "Oh yeah, I have leagues score due in..."

I really hope this works out because leagues really got me into the game when I first started playing and I truly think they are the major reason I'm as good as I am today. Unfortunately, the competitiveness of this site has seriously dropped ever since GHWT came out and I really think that these leagues can help get SH back to where it used to be competition-wise.

Again, I really hope this works out .

As I said before...a front page announcement probably won't happen...

Again one of my scores is giving me 0 points. On PaJ I should be tied for first but I'm getting 0. I submitted the score at around 2:30 today.

Sorry I was unable to input any scores for last week, but all of my controllers have stopped working, I have ordered a new one and hopefully it will arrive today.

Anyway I think codemann is right and we probably won't be able to have a front page announcement which means it it up to us to get the word out.

One thing you could do is when the score deadline is coming everybody is emailed or sent a PM automatically saying that scores are due soon.

Edit: Ok Guitar still hasn't arrived and now my Xbox has got the RROD (again), fortunately I have GH3 for Pc but my laptop is a load of rubbish so I don't know how that will work out.

Obviously, week 4 scores are updated and everyone is placed in seeds based on their overall score, but if u don't submit a score, ur seed is dropped and the next seed takes ur place.... After this round, the seed that shows is going to be the permanent seeds... All is automated from here so Also no waiting on me to update the scores or anything

Are we going to have to show picture proof? Or have you not integrated that into the site yet/figured out whether or not you will do that?

Ok, all seeds are now final...there was a glitch for 24 minutes which I have fixed, but all is correct now...we'll see if something changes for next round, though I don't suspect so

Looks like there's a glitch on the results page for the GH3 and I can't check who won. I'm anxious to see the result
