Just a quick reminder that SCT is for college teams only- high school teams are not permitted to register.

Quick reminder that registration for the 2018 SCT will close on Monday. There are a number of active teams who haven't registered yet; please sign up as soon as you can so that our hosts have enough time to make staffing arrangements.

I can't find a link to the NAQT Sectional at UNC. Does anybody have any details on that one, other than it's on Sunday?

Today is the last day to register teams for SCT. We currently have a record 253 teams registered for this weekend's SCTs; it would be great to have even more!

Is there any way to make either the D-value table (at https://www.naqt.com/stats/rating-values.jsp) slightly narrower or the scroll window in which it resides slightly wider? In Firefox 58, the rightmost four columns are cut off, notably including the final D-value; this holds regardless of zoom level and window size, and is also true in Google Chrome and Safari. Screenshot attached.

It is scrollable horizontally for me; is it not so for you?

I will try to see if we can make the first two or three columns fixed as you scroll the rest of the table (which happens on mobile), but I'm not sure if that will be workable.

edit: it is

I am able to scroll to see the rest of the data, but then I can't see the team names anymore. It would be helpful if the first few columns were fixed, as you suggest.

You're going to update the rankings once the stats are in from Sunday's SCT at UNC, right?

Yes (the list is not finalized until every SCT reports complete statistics).

Any word on what's keeping the 3-4 remaining sites from reporting stats?

We've heard from most of these sites and are working with them to correct various minor errors in the reported stats.
