Did anybody try submitting predictions a few hours ago?

I received 2 emails: one was full of 0-0 draws and the name given was “echo ‘WTF’” so I think they were maybe testing to see if they could insert php into the email or something, the second one was literally just the team names. They would have had to have done something in order to erase all the 0s that are in the boxes by default.

I think someone was having a little play around.

They look cool. I want to see them animated.

If you still can’t get it to work after a couple more tries, it’s okay to just copy and edit the numbers from someone’s post above. You can put them here or pm them to me.
Yeah, it's pretty weird, it works neither on my phone nor my PC. I'll post my guesses here. However, I also don't have access to the rules, would be great if you could post them here (or PM me).
I've updated the first post to contain the rules in spoiler tags :-D

I now tried at different times on different days but I always get a server not found error ???
That’s odd. It’s been pretty reliable from where I’m sitting (apart from on the set times where it’s reliably unreliable). If you still can’t get it to work after a couple more tries, it’s okay to just copy and edit the numbers from someone’s post above. You can put them here or pm them to me.

The whole php form thing is just my silly little project anyway. It doesn’t really make things much quicker as I still have to manually input them into the spreadsheet. I’ve just started a new teacher training course. My AGS-related activities always go up when there is something else I should be concentrating on. Read an linguistics book or tweak some CSS? No brainer.

@DBoy - Well done for finishing your game already. Do consider adding something in the way of background music or noise. You've still got a week to go.

11 people in Eruo ‘16 (well 12 because Creamy came on as a sub for Tzachs who came off injured at half time) and 14 in World Cup ‘14. But 20 would be great.

I hit Enter by accident and submitted 26 no-score draws that I didn't intend to.  I think I'll leave it at that now and hope for the most boring World Cup ever!
Hehe. I noticed that and it made me laugh. I thought maybe you were planning to submit the rest later (not in the rules but I wouldn’t have minded) but I just took the ones you put in hide tags in your post above and entered them into the spreadsheet. :-)

We now have 10 players already (including me).
Another 10 would be perfect.

I have no idea what I'm doing. I also forgot to copy the results, so let's hope the site doesn't crash or something.
When you submit the predictions they are emailed to me and I’ve also entered them into the Google sheet, so they should be safe :-)

I’ve just submitted my own guesses.
I’ll post them here too, it would be good to have a time-stamped record so that no one will think I fiddled the spreadsheet if (when :=) I win the league.

AGS Games in Production / Re: Tardigrades

It looks like most games take forever to release like a few other games stated out in late 2017 are still not out nor do you ever hear anything about them: kind of guessing game..O well maybe I will check back next year to see ....
It’s kind of tradition in adventure development, and games in general, to wildly misjudge how long it will take to finish a game.

As a rule, take the number given by the dev, halve it, then add 9 years.

@CaptainD - Yeah sorry about that, Dave. Try again in a couple of hours or when you have a chance. If you don’t pay for the premium package, the host puts your site to sleep for one hour every day for “maintenance”. They’re a great free host for learning though.

Cheers Cassie.
Two entries already :-)

Good plan Selmiak. Thanks for your submission. It was fun to receive the first email from someone other than ‘John Smith’ or ‘Guybrush’ or ‘Testy McTestface’

All in one go would be preferable. It used to be that you could do them in drips and drabs but most people did them in one block anyway. It’s easier for me because I have to transfer them manually to the spreadsheet in my free time.

It’ll be a mission but it’s just 5-10 minutes and you’ve got 4 weeks to think about it and make notes before submitting. After the group stage it will be dramatically easier.

No no, it's not immediately obvious. My web design skills are about as basic as all my other skills, so any suggestions or feedback is welcome.

Due to being on a free host, the site is unavailable between the hours of 14:00 to 15:00 every day (sometimes a little longer).
Is that sentence different according to my system clock? If not, you might wanna add the timezone.
Thanks for checking it out. It does say at the top of that box ‘All times are in BST’. But I might add it again to that sentence just to make it clearer.

The beautiful game!
No, I don’t mean Phantasmagoria.
I mean Soccer.

Football fever is nearly upon us and suddenly we're all armchair experts again.
That can only mean 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia is nearly upon us.

Predict the scores, win points, become a champion.

Make Your Predictions Here!


This year, we have a special predictions website. You only need to enter your forum name and predictions. That's also where you'll find all the rules and updates (via a twitter timeline).

I will be maintaining THIS SPREADSHEET and league table on a publicly viewable document. I won't always be able to update things straight away. But rest assured, if you submitted a valid prediction before the deadline, it will count, even if you can't see it reflected in the spreadsheets and updates straight away. It just means I'm probably asleep or at work.  I'm in the Japanese time-zone through this, so please bear with me.

I think that's all for now. Let me know if you have any Queries.

Good Luck and Happy Predicting!

Just a bump to say the prediction website will be going live preeeetty soon.

General Discussion / Re: Where`s m0ds?
« on: 15 May 2018, 00:55 »
Yeah, it’s weird not to see m0ds around here these days. To me he’s one of the AGS All-Stars. I’m sure there are several good reasons (moving away from AGS for his games for one). Plus, the community has evolved and maybe he just doesn’t feel like this is his place any more. I know some of the political trumpybrexy threads got a little bit nasty and some of Mark’s views seemed less popular than others’. I don’t want to put words in his mouth though. Maybe he has totally different reasons.

We can still follow him and Screen7 on Twitter, Facebook etc. Mark, if you’re lurking: all the best, dude
