Submitting Results

The website appears not to be sending emails from the results pages. The last received was on Tuesday 9th April. When you submit a result captains always receive an email confirmation; if you didn't receive one, the result did not get through either.

For the time being, please do not send or resend results by the form (or any other way for that matter). Keep an eye on this page and a I hope normal service will resume soon. Last time something like this happened, when the blockage was removed, the mails came through.

Update 22:10: It seems back to normal now. I'm not sure if Mark Newton at hosts ECats did something or it was to do with our Google mailbox (and so out of our control). I stood Mark down around 18:00 while I tried other approaches and the old method started working again arounbf 18:22 (nothing I did).

Fortunately included within the send-failures I received are the submitted results. They appear to be:

There are also duplicates, I'll sort them all out in the morning.

Knockout Draws

Apologies. Both knockout draws were accidentally corrupted on 17th January. They have now been reverted to their original state – if you think differently, please get in touch.

As a result of some innocent tidying, the indexes between the team-names and the random numbers (fixed after the draw) were broken. Everything else is done by team-name and unaffected.

Website

There have been a few changes to the forms that record results and team details. In the main these are 'under the hood', to consolidate data and better manage the end of its useful life. That part, the removal of personal details from historical records, is ongoing.

The results submission has been tidied so, I hope, adding new players is more intuitive. If any irregularities emerge, I'd like to know.
