Cheers everyone grin

There is now a complete list of the questions on the "answers" page, if you wish to copy them to work on and submit later. This page will contain the actual answers as they happen. Unfortunately those I'll still have to keep an eye on and enter manually, so please let me know if an event happens and I miss it! smile

Can you use the little up/down arrows to select a number instead perhaps? Still not quite sure where the issue is.

Edit: oh 17 doesn't have arrows. Hum. I'll look into it today but PM me your answers if you'd like and I'll enter it manually.

Just realized the error you're getting is from the first validator, not the 2nd like Firepac's. Make sure you're not entering spaces or anything that's not a - or . or a number. If it still doesn't work, just shoot me a PM smile

Also had a look and Darwin has possible thunderstorm on their forecast for tomorrow. Don't make me remove a question please!! poke

Validators are a pain, but it doesn't take much to completely destroy the database without them if you know what you're doing.

LOL, might as well be, dormant grin

Morning all! Things I'm trying to enter but I keep getting the same error message about question 17 needing to be a number? I've tried a few times and am definitely not entering any other characters or anything?? Help please!

Grr, have tried 5 times and I can't get it to error for me. Anyone having issues please PM me your answers. I'll have another good look at the form after work today.

On a positive note, the scoring system is coming along nicely! smile

I found that the problem regarding question 17 was related to Internet Explorer (of course..). I've redone the validation and it should work fine now .. but as usual, let me know if it doesn't! smile

LOL, thought I'd made a mistake somewhere then realized what Q7 was. Maybe all the Townsville members can have "pity points" for the rainfall questions wink

Scoring system done, averages will now display on the Answers page once entries close, and the leaderboard works (but will be empty until a question actually gets answered), and prettied a few things up.

Very close to being completely finished functionally grin

For those wondering how the competition and scoring works, take a look at one of the previous competitions. The scoring system is basically identical, except for a slight change with Q16 (landfall does not affect score): http://forum.weatherzone.com.au/ubbthreads.php/topics/1205882/1/Annual_Tropics_Competition_201

Was gonna wait till 10 days but beat me to it grin

14 days until hopefully nothing breaks poke Surprised Darwin hasn't had a storm yet though, was half expecting that one to be answered early. Still time I guess.

No worries .. eventually I'll get it on it's own domain and move it back to a server in AU so it's a bit faster. Curious to see how it'll go once it hits the 1st of November grin
