      I’m going to get back on the predict the score contest now, since I have the home page done. I think there are some ghosts in the machine on the home page though, so may have to do some bug fixes. 

      Haven’t gotten any feedback on how to do scoring for predict the score, so here’s what I’m thinking.  Each game the user can make points in the following ways:

      1. Guess a team’s score within 10 points – 5 points awarded

      2. Guess a team’s score withing 5 points – 10 points awarded

      3. Guess a team’s score exactly – 15 points awarded

      4. Predicting the winner – 10 points

      5. Bonus for guessing both teams’ scores exactly – 10 points

      So let’s say Utah is playing byu in football.

      User Ute69 predicts the score to be Utah 42 byu 7
      User BigUteFan predicts the score at Utah 40 byu 6
      User Tony (haha) predicts Utah 42-0 over the zoo

      Utah wins 42-0.

      Ute69’s points:5 points for guessing byu’s score within 10
      15 points for guessing Utah’s exact score
      10 points for predicting the winner
      30 Total points

      BigUteFan’s points:
      10 points for guessing Utah’s score within 5 points
      10 points for guessing byu’s score within 5 points
      10 points for picking the winner
      30 Total points

      Tony’s points:
      15 points for guessing Utah’s score exactly
      15 points for guessing byu’s score exactly
      10 points for picking the winner correctly
      10 bonus points for picking both teams’ scores exactly
      50 total points

      I like it. Although guessing the score exactly is seriously hard to do so probably should be awarded like 50 for that day or week. If someone can nail it they deserve it. But I’m up for whatever. Enjoy the pickem’ and did well throughout the season. Keep up the great work with this site!

      *** GIVEAWAY—- If you want I will throw in FREE TOPGOLF to the TOP 5 users of a week/season however you decide to do it since I work a side job there I can get FREE GOLF and 50% off food. I’m willing to take 5 people in and have a good time.

        Ok sure.  A bigger bonus for picking both scores exactly.  Sounds good.

        Ok I have made the calculations work on my development version of the site!  I did a 30 point bonus for picking both scores.  So based on that the one person who picked both scores exactly right in the NCG was of course the winner, by a large margin because of the bonus’s.

        I’ve got some cleanup to do on the stuff before I can bring it over here, but it is coming along.  I may make the points configurable so we can tweak them if we decided they’re not quite right.
