Can somebody fix this HUGE error I found this in the WCA website statistics page. I'm pretty sure I'm not 110 years old.
Please see the first post on this thread. Mistakes like this should be emailed to the results team so that we see them. I don't check this thread regularly.

When you registered online for Hackley Summer 2011, you listed your date of birth as 6/22/1901. MIT Spring was the first time you competed in anything besides 2x2, so that's why you weren't listed in the oldest competitors list before then. I've fixed this.

Sorry about not emailing instead of posting this error, anyway thanks for fixing this so I don't have to worry about people asking if I'm really 110 :)

So it looks like results/competitions/persons went down?
Basically everything relying on the database?

Is this a major problem, or has something just gone down temporarily?

Ah it's back now.


Oh, I totally missed that message. oops >_>
My bad guys.

EDIT: actually, on a related point. Why is there still a DoB column on the competitor page if that information can't be public anymore? It just seems a bit arbitrary to leave it there unless they're coming back any time soon.

We're moving servers. As the DNS entries propagate, everyone should be able to use the site like normal again.

Yeah, that still bothers me. I'm going to make a note to remove that column.

Couldn't find a thread for suggestions, so I guess I'll post it here:

When I click on 333bf at the top of the table with competitors for a future competition (example page), the page orders competitors by average. That used to be single and I don't understand why it changed. Please order it by single again. Thanks.

It makes more sense to show average for a psych sheet. That gives a much better representation of speed for any sort of seeding. Although it is too bad that people who have official singles but not averages don't get to be seeded.
