    Is there a scoring algorithm now? It used to be done by hand, so to say.

    Still can't believe I went 5 for 5 with ice dance of all disciplines. I know nothing about ice dance. Nothing.

    This is one of those strange situations where somebody withdrawing actually works against the player.

    Fortunately, it doesn't happen that often.

    But has Loena not withdrawn, Polina would be in 6th place and 6th place does not count,right? Only first 5 places. And it depends on how Loena would have done. If she bombed it would be 0 points for the player, so we don't know for sure that it worked against the player, 5 points is still better than 0.

    Depends on how you define 'a while' - it took me about 40-60 mins to score out by hand and put scores in the spreadsheet and then to prepare post with podium/summary, not much in my book. And for me it is a great exercise for a brain to score out by hand, spot some 'trends', who for example predicted also 6th place correctly etc. But it's just my weirdness.

    Apologies, I'll correct in right away - in the sea of 45 and 55 it was bound to happen

    Yes it would, but when I helped score it around two seasons ago, we did it by hand. I don't think we had quite as many players back then, however

    Oh, yes, quite a bit has changed since you were scoring, satine.

    Samkrut developed this algorithm which makes the scoring process a lot quicker and simpler. There is still a good bit of stuff that the scorers have to do themselves, but the spreadsheet does the calculations itself. Which is a godsend when you have as many players as we do nowadays.

    Some scorers still prefer to do it manually, though. And, curiously enough, it tends to be the younger scorers that prefer doing it manually. Which is the opposite of what I would have expected.

    Personally, I prefer using the algorithm.

    But, at the end of the day, it is best that the scorers do it whichever way they are most comfortable with, be it manually or using the algorithm.

    NoNameFace, I have the same feelings on scoring! It doesn't take me that long to score by hand and definitely helps spot some trends. For me, the longest part is copying and pasting the predictions into a spreadsheet. Love that there are more players this year. I'll definitely get a workout scoring Men's for Skate Canada this week!

    Glad to hear that!

    It also helps me to memorize more names of posters participating, I think it is a good thing - I see who is new and who participated in past years. And with Men the workout could be REAL
