    [imgleft][/imgleft] tMP Regional Prediction Competition 2007

    It's prediction time once again, the area qualifiers are getting close, and the tMP Predictogizmatron has been fed with all the details of competing bands. All we would like you to do is choose your top 3 in each section. Simple.

    For those of you who have not been lucky enough to be inflicted with this before, clicking on the link at the very top of the page will bring you to the Predictions Contest page, where you choose your bands. It's as simple as that.

    Well, each section in each area will have 15 points. For every successful prediction, you will score 5 points. Furthermore, if you predict a band in the top 3, but out of position, you score 2 points.

    The lucky tMPer with the most points will be declared the winner, and be the object of awe from all other tMPers.

    Have fun.

    Errrm ophicliede - can you see the link at the top of the page called "tMP Regional Predictions 07" - that's where you enter your votes!!!
  4. Entered my Yorkshire ones, and started on Midlands but then it came up with a "no user name" error when I tried to enter Midland 1st section. The others all seemed to go through fine & definitely recognised who I was.

    p.s. wasn't me who put Imps as 1st in Yorkshire, but is a nice thought !!

    John, there are a number of sections/regions where I have absolutely no idea who most of the bands are and pick based upon the best sounding band names.. but would it be possible to create a lucky dip button that automatically selects three at random for a number of sections/areas?

    Perhaps a thought for future prediction competitions. Looking forward to inputting my predictions...

    Maybe for future revisions Tim, but sorry - but we are not able to do this for the current contest.

    No worries, just me being lazy I guess!

    Also I've just noticed that the Page Titles for the "Live Stats" and "Current Standings" refer to 2006 and 2005 contests respectively.

    Fantastic way to waste time at work - thanks!!
  9. Live stats working fine for me.

    'Current standings' is supposed to reflect results so far, so isn't applicable till next week.

    Oh, & rather than a 'lucky dip', why don't you go through an in depth, detailed analysis of the results of last years regional / national contests, pontins, butlins etc etc when choosing the unfamiliar region / section results like everyone else does..... ;)

    I meant the page title simply said "2006" not "2007", which could be confusing, but based on the bands listed I guessed it was the 2007 details.

    Well that was a great way to pass an hour or so of a Monday morning!!

    A lot of wild guess work on the regions less familiar to me and so many bands i have never heard of although it is quite encouraging for the movement to see so many bands competing this year!

  12. I see Grange Moor already have a few nominations fopr placings in Yorkshire 1st section - interesting because the official tMP yorkshire area thread lists them as WITHDRAWN :(

    heres all my predictions, now I need to ask the good people of the areas where I have no idea about at all if you think ive done pretty fair guesses or if you think im bonkers and some of those bands are unlikely to come in the top 3, this is directed to the people who have good knowledge of all the areas bar yorkshire pretty much, should be pretty close there, although I dont think im too far wrong with the north west, your opinions are appreciated as I really would like to know what you think of these predictions, CHEERS! :D

    Yep, a number of people have commented on how tough a competition the Yorkshire 1st Section's going to be - it's so tough that band's that aren't even competing have got a chance of a place ;) .

    Even better is they've got more votes than BBSBB - not much chance for us then.

    Also is someone who generates the spreadsheet for the competition a Predictogizmatronicologist?

    and how long before Clive ^ gets an interesting comment from John or Dyl? I can't wait to read what they have to say to that one.

    I also had that message. Exit and go in again and you'll find all your previous entries have saved, and you can carry on.

    Hey Clive, thanks for predicting us third! I'm hoping for a top six finish, rehearsals going very well, but I'd take third I guess!

    Will post my predictions when I get a min, or when it's working properly!
