Thanks to @Atilla who's shared with me the spreadsheet and has been very accommodating with the handover. I hope to relaunch the competition shortly!


Any chance we can drop One of the averages. Still leaves Two others to contend with.

What I want to know is ----------------- will Att come back as a player !

I've reached out to @Atilla to see if he can handover to me and we can get the weekly S&P contest going again. If you were a regular entrant and therefore poster on here, do let me know if it's something you'd be interested in participating again.
Sounds good.
Count me in.

Sure, but first you'll need to explain what you mean by averages?! I'm planning on going over the spreadsheet tomorrow. :LOL:

Well, as I understand it, there are 3 averages that play alongside the players in the comp.

1) Weekly Average of all players forecasts.
2) Weighted average, which must be some sort of trend bias input.
3) Another 1 which Att called, his black box calculation average. Or something like that.

Thing is, it's hard enough for players to amass points over time without all these averages robbing us blind every week. :ROFLMAO:

I'm sure we could probably lose at least 1 of them, maybe 2, leaving the last one in play as a joker in the pack if you will.

CV old bean,

You can drop my BB_Tfs_V2 but I'd recommend keeping the Mean Average and Weigthed Average. It is a good baseline to see if the field with Weighted Average is outperforming Basic Average forecasts.

Also, the MA and WA don't participate in prize money so no one really looses out.

Keep MA & WA in and drop BB_Tfs_V2. The only downside is they take some time (minutes) to calculate.

Would you feel better if we changed name to T2W_AI_Bot or something else? AI seems to be all the craze at the mo.

Sure, they are only suggestions. I'm fine with losing 1 of them. Just trying to simplify the admin process for Sharky.

Good of you to think of me 😅
