Current and Historical Qualifying database


#1

Surprised it hasn’t been done yet or even talked about plus I’m far too untech-savvy (i.e. lazy) to head up such a task, but thoughts on having a spreadsheet or list of all tournaments and any appropriate link to past qualifying/final results? I’m thinking almost like the Pinball Videos database, but with links to all of the past NeverDrains, Lefkoffsupreme, BDivision, Expos, PAPAs, etc. Personally I always like to check out past tournaments to see what qualifying scores were at past tournaments or how the finals all played out, but usually have to track down any tournament or remember the acronyms at the end of the NeverDrains/Lefkoff sites to find anything. That is all, will go back to lurking and hope to see some of you at Expo next week!

Figured I’d make this an editable Wiki post (Greg, help!)…

Archived PAPA Scores
#2

It’s a massive undertaking to do this for all tournaments. Imagine all the work IFPA puts into collecting data on just the tournament results and then multiply that work by a factor of… a lot to start collecting data on individual matches.

Shameless plug: You have access to all tournament data for tournaments run using Match Play Events on Match Play Live – there are even play profiles where you can view your own history (or anyone else’s). Here’s my player profile: https://matchplay.events/live/users/1

You can also browse old brackelope tournaments at http://live.brackelope.com/ but it’s a bit hard to navigate older tournaments.


#3

Oh I agree, it definitely wouldn’t be an overnight thing, but I might have worded my thing poorly in terms of the “data” aspect. I just simply meant a catalog of links, for example and perhaps maybe I’ll simply start a Wiki page here to get the ball rolling, but something as simple as this was all I really meant:

California Extreme 2015 - http://neverdrains.com/cax2015/playerIndex.php
INDISC 2015 - http://www.neverdrains.com/2015standings/playerIndex.php

I think a wiki here would be a great start. I would certainly be adding links to that wiki page.

I would love to have more tournament data available. I know I’ll go through old tournaments and replay some of the games in my head. I bet (or hope) that I’m not the only one :slight_smile:

It’s why I’m building out player profiles on Match Play Events and making sure old results stay online.

@kdeangelo does appear to clean out his server from time to time. E.g. CAX 2014 is still online, but CAX 2013 is no longer available :cry:


#5

I have CAX 2013 backed up. When I finally get around to my big redesign I’ll put everything back up. Problem now is I get a total of 50 mysql databases at my host and I’ve used them all so anytime a new tournament is needed something else has to go.


#6

Ah, that explains it. I’m happy you have the database backed up still! :slight_smile:


#7

I have qualifying standings (on my site or backed up) for:

Cali-Extreme 2011 & 2012
Expo 2011 & 2012
NWPS 2011 & 2012
RMPS 2010 - 2015

I can see about putting those results back up into a lefkoff.com/legacy type location…

@Smack847: Some of the links in your most recent edit of the original post don’t seem to be working, because they have a “1” at the end – seems you copypasted them from the other post including the click counter.

@haugstrup: agreed, this should be a wiki; pinging @keefer, because you’re the one I’ve most recently seen making a post a wiki.


#10

This should be a wiki now. Let me know if it doesn’t work. It was the first time I tried pushing those buttons :slight_smile:


#11

Thanks, didn’t know you had access to those magic buttons. I fixed the links now.


#12

Awesome, thanks! Those magic buttons weren’t appearing for me, but nice to have those fixed. And hopefully can update this soon with this weekend’s Expo standings


#13

Heh, I still have some historical qualifying results from super-old Cal Extremes, like 2007 or earlier. Will see what I can dig up if you think it would be useful.


#14

PAPA keeps all historical data on their site, under the “PAPA events” tab.


#15

Figured I’d update the title of this thread to also say current since I just updated with the current Expo standings!


#16

I just came here to add the same link!


#17

FOURTEEN BYES zomg


#18

Wrong acronym, but close…FOURTEEN BYES or GTFO!


#19

Yeah, going to need to keep the code archived separate for this one :laughing:


#20

Most of these are Karl’s obviously, wonder if we could get lefkoff and shepherd’s archives too?
