No, when you look at the competitors tab, u can see names/comps/attempts and I would like to be able to maybe order them after average attempts per comp (or just get a top 20 of that stat) :)

Would that even be doable in an easy way?
It can certainly be done, but I'm not sure how much calculation will be required, and if it might be prohibitive on calculation time to do. It wouldn't be as hard if it weren't for the fact that the 5 solves per week are stored as 5 separate columns in the same row, so an SQL query to solve this would be quite complicated.

If calculation time is prohibitive, I could probably make it so you can see your own personal PBs by offloading the work onto javascript on your personal machine if you really want to know them. Anyway, it will take some time to think about it, so it will be a while before I add something like this.

I do hope to eventually go through anything in this thread and consider things for adding, but I already have a lot to do in the immediate future between the new events for 2020 and integration with the Forum. Once those things are done, I can start considering these other things.

I decided to go ahead and add all 4 of the new suggested events this year. They are now live.

Please go easy on the timer for speed FMC (and probably for FMC as well, since they share much of the same code). The timers seem to work properly if you don't do anything too tricky, but I know there are still bugs in them. I will be trying to eradicate the bugs as fast as I can. I suggest that you keep your paper results (including the times, for speed FMC) until the start of the next week; that way if something goes wrong we can reenter them.

Scoring for speed FMC is moves + minutes, with minutes scored to the hundredths. I have not (yet) implemented a maximum time. I do see some justification for the recent suggestion that I perhaps create an hour time limit, as in regular FMC, just to stop the trolls. So please try not to take more than an hour for a solve; I might decide to retroactively DNF it if you do.

Please, if you see any problems, PM me. I will be attempting to watch messages closely, especially for the next few hours..
