Re: SQBS Help Thread

I found SCOP's SQBS walkthrough (http://scop-qb.org/stat/) to be really helpful with things like efficiently dealing with cross-over games and merging files.

Re: Neg 5 : Quizbowl for the Cloud

It appears to be working again, though I'm hesitant to use it again in the near future. Having a bug like this pop up in the middle of a tournament would be pretty disastrous.

I think you left a team (or more than one) off in the parser_settings.json file, or at least I was able to duplicate your error message by doing this.

Re: Neg5 to SQBS Parser

It appears to have worked pretty flawlessly after I fixed a few mistakes in total TUH for a few matches. I was unsure of how to enter a forfeit into neg5, so those were entered as 10 - 0 games and were easy to change to forfeits once the SQBS file was made. Thank you so much!

Thank you Bryan Lu for creating a parser to convert the Neg5 stats to SQBS. We will be sharing this once we finish testing it so that everyone can use it.
Is there any chance you've finished testing this?
