Re: Indiana 2020

Just think if anyone took any of the flu virus strains so seriously. You know, that thing which kills several thousand people every year.

Re: Indiana 2020

Thanks for all the fish.

I'll never forget the trials and tribulations the SO brought into my life.

I'm better for it.

This chapter of my life has come to a close.

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

This would be an unofficial ranking done by the scioly community for fun. The idea behind aggregating multiple voters is that it decreases the influence of bias (you could even take out the highest and lowest ranking of each team to cut out bias even more). I don't think it would be something to ta...

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

Ranking teams is not that hard. Even just writing a program to do it is able to put Nationals placements within 3 ranks from actual position on average. This is true. But like I pondered in my previous reply (which you probably haven't seen since I just posted before this) would that create a secon...

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

If we're throwing out ideas here, what about this: 1) Figure out the critical mass of teams for nationals at the venue. 2) Give the #1 team in each state an automatic bid. 3) Give 1 extra bid to states in alphabetical order to satisfy the max amount of teams. 4) Subsequent years pick up at next alph...
