Re: Quiz Bowl Tournament Posting System

I changed the order, I didn't realize that it wasn't doing that :)

I made a change last night that must have removed the "Pointer" cursor. I'll fix it today. I had to present this project for a class so everythings been a little hectic lately.

Thanks for the submission!

Quiz Bowl Tournament Posting System

Hey all, This is a cross post from the collegiate discussion thread. I've been developing a web application over the last few months that will handle several tasks of current quiz bowl applications, as well as take some to the next level. A brief overview of the website and what it does is as follow...

Re: Quiz Bowl Tournament Posting System (QBTPS)

Against my better judgment, I've removed the requirements for a phone number.

While it's not required, it's HIGHLY encouraged to add this information the day before your tournament, and it can always be removed later.

Re: Quiz Bowl Tournament Posting System (QBTPS)

While I agree with you Gordon, I'm not sure how to implement a decent system without making queries extremely complicated. Avram suggested having a hideable modal window that would have the check boxes and things within it, as you only need to toggle that data during substitutions, and that may be a...

Re: Quiz Bowl Tournament Posting System (QBTPS)

A phone number is required. It is nice to have that contact, for day of things, but why am I posting my phone number up to everyone? I prefer to just send it out to teams in an email. Also I get a server error when I try to submit a tournament. A big problem with TDs is that they neglect to post ph...

Quiz Bowl Tournament Posting System (QBTPS)

Hey all, So it's been a good while since I first posted about this system, and I feel like it's time to make a few updates about it, as well as announcements.. 1) I added a Google Maps API implementation. Any tournament that is added to my database will automatically be added to this map (which is s...

Re: I needed a database project

I've registered a domain and moved this website onto a live server. Jerry Vinokurov has expressed interest in providing additional functionality with this web application in regards tournament question submission and editing, but that's yet to come. The website is stable enough for tournaments to be...

Re: I needed a database project

Most of the back-end is finished. I'm still adding support for the stats page (the UI is finished, though. It just won't post data to the database). If you'd like to login to QBTPS using a test account I've created, you can post a tournament and see how things work. The Tournament System UI will be ...

Re: I needed a database project

One problem with specifying line number is that different computers size the view differently, depending on the user's requirements. Anyhow, the ideal solution would be to incorporate question delievery into scorekeeping. The question is on the screen. You click where they buzzed, then it goes to t...

Re: I needed a database project

How can it upset the statistics when there's no current system that even tracks the total distinct negs in a tournament? And to clarify, do you mean: Match A Round X Room A. Player Negs. Match A Round X Room B. Player Negs. Would this count as "one distinct", as they're on the same question and negg...

Re: I needed a database project

It may be possible to do an after-the-fact "where did they buzz in?" type system, but I don't see it being used frequently. It'd require the reader to mark where they were buzzed, and the stat keeper to mark either the line number or the word number on where they buzzed in. Another potential problem...

I needed a database project

So I did one. http://173.30.99.237/qbtps/ This is an early beta of a program that will have an in-game stat management system. Eventually, you will be able to manage stats for a tournament, which will provide people with the ability to see a tournament that's in progress in a "live" state. You'll se...

Re: Tournament Discussion Committee of the First International

I played at the MU tournament on these. As to people thinking the CS questions are completely unreasoable, I disagree. I'm a freshman CS at Missouri State and the only tossup CS that I didn't get was serialization, and I early buzzed for RSS shortly after the XML clue. The multithreading question ha...
