how about leaving the old background active for one more day after publishing the new one? Should solve most conflicts here...

I planned an operation around this whole thing, can you make it earlier instead of later? Cause I wont be lifting a Dewar after.

 

Make it Friday the 7th, and everyone will be happy.

 

otherwise, can someone fly to QLD and be my pour bitch

Naw I like this change of background, sandbags are stupid. Tbh it'd be awesome if there could be a background change every day of the comp, but the overhead would be too much. Seriously guys, how hard is it to download the new background on the same laptop that you use for taking notes while benching? If you're not sandbagging then this is no big deal. Really sandbagging is stupid, if you're worried about people beating your scores then make bigger scores. Sandbagging only hurts competition.

the problem is not the download, the problem is to use accidentally the wrong background because you forgot to change the background at midnight or you forgot to upload one result at that day/before midnight and the next day it´s no longer valid...

i have no problem with changing the background, but not at weekend or the day before or after. bigger sessions with extreme-cooling take place at weekends and on such sessions the risk for forgetting to change the background within the benchsession is to big.

thats no matter of sandbagging. i don´t like sandbagging, too. but it might be very annoying to do all that work and pay hundrets of euros for LN2 and stuff and then everything was for nothing because of such a nothingness.

Yeah changing in the middle of the week is not a bad idea, and my comments about sandbags were more towards those saying we shouldn't do background changes...

Best sandbagging effort I ever witnessed was the Mad Shrimps team in Team Cup. Server was slowed bad,

around same time as the sneaky coin mining of members pc's HWbot

Really it's the last few days when the best scores are revealed :P Comps that are short like a week haha ... 1x month beforehand to purchase parts

Quick you see, big scores straight up is more exciting if you can see a target to beat

maybe it was an idea to establish leadingpoints for each day your team is in top 3, 3 leadingpoints for 1st place, 2 lp for second, 1 lp for third.

to win the title or get a rostrum-place your team need to have at least x lp. does your team not have enough lp, it´s maximum rated 4th.

so you can bench the whole time without any ristrictions but have to fight the whole time for a leading place to earn the needed lp.

maybe the leadingpoints should be given for top 5 ot top 10, else a top team could fall through because most time of the cup other topteams hold the top 3 places and the best team faid to earn enough lp...

this idea needs to be elaborated, but i think it has potential...

Feedback for deaf ears: rules re: mainboard tab and sensors tab are just good ol' fashioned retarded.

Finally managed to fit it all in my window. Good luck to mods trying to make sure my competition wallpaper is compliant.

Question: my Dothan-submission for referance clock (score) does not appear in the ranking:

 

competition ranking

 

It is recorded as belong to ranking, see top of the screen shot:

Only one submission per user per stage, so your better submission is counting.

Can you clarify this for single core stage

  • One submission allowed per CPU socket 
  • This means that if we have a L3014 sub ,a P4 640 is not counted anymore ?
