We at TVC are really psyched to finally have reached the top of the mountain. I had actually thought we finished just short of the Mensans. When I think about all of the work that we've done to get here, it's so gratifying. I just love the people on this team, and it's the people who make this so special. Thanks for everything you do. Go TVC!

And as the shepherd's crook yanks that award recipient off stage, let us remind everyone these standings wouldn't be possible without the efforts of WesleyCrusher. Thank you WC.

Lol, Mehaul, it did have a bit of an overblown award acceptance feel to it. Thanks for all you do, Wesley. Oh, and I would like to thank my mom as well.

Thanks a lot WC...really appreciate all the work this takes. Finding my team at 23 (up from 43 a couple of months ago!) is a terrific shot in the arm for us smile

No major surprises - Vicious Circle seems intent on running away with the title in 2012 featuring two wins early on. Can anyone still stop them?

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Sun Mar 04 2012 09:37 PM

I just deleted YET more cheating allegations from this thread. Please, stop.

All I can say is this: I am making some changes to some of our games, and the way that data is served from FunTrivia.

It will indeed be interesting to see what happens to scores over the next couple of months.

Sounds good, Terry, and I apologize for my post. I didn't mean for it to be inflammatory. I'm just a little discouraged.

I do truly apologize and won't post anything again that isn't at least an attempt to be helpful.

I truly do love this site, and want to support it as best I can. I know how hard you and all the Admin work.

Please forgive me. And Wesley, honestly, thank you for crunching those numbers.

I'm not happy with our team score. I used to be but not now. Did the check bounce? Why do we do this anyway? Will it ever stop?

Seriously, thank you once again for your efforts WC.

I just learned of the existence of this "Team of the Year" listing.
I was surprised to see my own team among those on the lists.

May I ask what determines a team's score?

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Tue Apr 03 2012 01:56 AM

Wesley has explained it thoroughly on the relevant thread. In brief, each team is given a ranking based on their performance during the month on the ten designated games, and the total for the ten games is used to rank the teams. Results are reported each month, as well as cumulatively for the completed portion of the year. At the end of the year, the teams are given their final rankings for the entire twelve months.

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Tue Apr 03 2012 02:13 AM

The competition began last year. Wesley explains it in the thread linked below. There you can also see how the year progresses. What you haven't seen yet this year is a Quarterly year-to-date totaling and reranking of up to that date's progress.

http://www.funtrivia.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/580880/Team_of_the_Year#Post580880

I've copied the game results/standings from your team info and ranks page. These are the ones that are unitized then summed for a composite score which levels the field between teams (no team ELO number!)
Game Today Pts Yest. Rank Yest. Monthly Pts Monthly Rank
Daily
Team Heroes Scores 8 - heroes 36 of 48 24 35 of 48
Team vs Team Daily Scores 1037 102 of 119 2053 94 of 121
The Daily Game Scores 40 39 of 48 393 32 of 48
Mind Melt Scores 301 30 of 48 528 31 of 48
New Question Daily Scores 237 32 of 48 668 29 of 48
Who Am I? (hard) Scores 130 34 of 48 205 35 of 48
World Daily Quiz Scores 92 35 of 48 92 37 of 48
Pot of Gold Scores 136 35 of 48 260 34 of 48
Hourly
Who's the Smartest Hourly Scores 123 33 of 48 739 23 of 48
Easy Hourly Scores 197 31 of 48 366 35 of 48
Mixed Hourly Scores 411 19 of 48 946 16 of 48

In bold are the values that will get unitized (kind of like changing rank number to a percentile value)
Sorry I haven't the hang of doing the 'code' table organizing of HTML yet. Someday it will dawn on me how it's done.

For that purpose, the Info and Ranks Table is still the place to follow day by day. I thought the Mixed addition was a done deal, mea culpa. Wasn't there to be another addition too? Obscurity, Expert, FMI or Word Wizard which were awaiting a team value to be developed at some point?

Posted by: mehaul

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Thu Apr 05 2012 07:59 PM

Do you throw it around inside your house when you play with it? Did it come with a pedigree? Is it sedimentary or metamorphic? Have you had it 'fixed'? Do you need a license/permit for it? Have you built it its own little rock garden? Have you bought it any concrete toys to play with? Do you plan to get the Roll that goes with it? Have you more rocks in your head to keep it company? Does it have its own chair? Bed? Have you bought any accessory outfits for it to wear? Have you painted a big C on it so it can be called crock? There's the game to play with it: the C on its chest, a big red cape tied around its neck and you throw it across the room! "Look up in the sky, it's Supercrock!" (as the cat that owns you runs out of the room.)

Haha! And this is what I mean -- mehaul is one and one-half hoots!

I would also like to thank Meryl Streep, all rocks in general and not just the ones considered "special," and my very own kitties, who have marched across my keyboard more than once, answering questions, tabbing down, and hitting "submit" while I screamed and gurgled, only to discover they were not only really fast, but all the answers were correct, too!

And I should thank Coco Chanel for my very first little black dress. Without her, I would be only half the girl I am today. And what a mess that would be.

And sheep. I feel compelled to thank sheep everywhere, since without sheep there would be no shepherds, and no need for that handy shepherd's crook.

And congrats to Tesla Coil for their 6th placing so far. That's quite an accomplishment for a small team (so I suppose a little black dress wouldn't be entirely out of order - unless the male members of the team were wearing one LOL).

And way to go VC, on your quarterly finish : )

There's still three quarters of the year left. Can VC hang on to their 0.22 advantage? ``~

Does anyone know what happened to "leeless"? They were always a quite competitive team and have disappeared from the cumulative. Has there been a name change or has the team been disbanded?

Thanks flopsy - "Incredible Casuals", ex-"leeless" now correctly in 22nd place.

They've gone back to being The Incredible Casuals. Must be a revolving door round here somewhere. smile

Thank you, Wesley! Glad to have them. We didn't forget, but figured you were too busy with the Great Quiz Race and other projects.

Oh, I think I see them on page 2 here.
The list was posted above on Sun May 20 2012 06:02 PM.
Am I right?
Can they be found anywhere else?

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Sat Jun 02 2012 08:28 PM

PS-what does the #795866 signify next to the date(Sun May 20 2012 06:02 PM)?
It doesn't seem to be a sequential number.

It's sequential across all forums.
The infopop software gives a unique number to every post in the forums.

This thread is where you see the latest Team of the Year standings when WesleyCrusher posts them. I believe there is a statement somewhere earlier that it only happens every two months, since the incremental changes are too small to be worthwhile posting every month.
Posted by: mehaul

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Sun Jun 03 2012 05:00 PM

There was another thread that had these rankings posted. It was for last year's results. WC started a new thread for this year's data so we wouldn't be having to go to page 22 or 47 to find the latest results. Perhaps the thread title should include the year? Oh, it does! So if you want to see stats for 2011, you have to find the other thread.

edit: the last posting to it would have been in Jan, 2012.
The last posting to it was on Jan 4, and is on the Forum Feedback Index page 14 or here is a link to it:

And there was much rejoicing. And some gnashing of teeth as well. All in the game, win or lose.

Note: The score of team "Trivia Bubbles" had to be reconstructed out of raw data since the final standings on the site inexplicably didn't list that team (I suspect they may have been too small in terms of active members at the start of the month to make the cut). The rebuilt score will be used in the annual standings, but I'm not going through and changing 140 place numbers smile

Wes, I've been through the list three times and can't see my team, Trivia Bubbles, anywhere. I'm going cross-eyed now. Can anyone else find us?

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Thu Jun 07 2012 09:07 AM

You've not been in the end of May results in any way. The site just doesn't have any of your scores. http://www.funtrivia.com/tvt_lastmonth.cfm

Since your team is however established and active, I would not believe you've completely fallen off the roster. You had a monthly average of just over 850 for the first four months, so I'll credit you with an 800.00 score for May if we can't find anything more accurate. It's probably a bit less than you'd otherwise have achieved, but for fairness, I need to rather underestimate than overshoot.

I can't find it - I did the Ctrl+F search thing and there were 3 matches: 1 from your post and 2 from the April standings.

EDIT: Oops, didn't see Wesley's post.

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Thu Jun 07 2012 09:20 AM

Rossian - good news. I have been able to fully reconstruct your scores by checking which numbers were missing from the small teams table. The only one I couldn't reliably get that way was thankfully on the site itself - 106th in TvT.

That puts you at 844.86 points which I'll be adding to the annual total.

Thanks, Wes. I know that we don't always have enough players for TvT, but we normally score in the other qualifying games. Maybe Terry will be able to work out what went wrong, and it isn't that important in the grand scheme of things, but I don't want you to have to do this every month!

No major surprises and it doesn't look like the standings dropped a team again either.

Echoing that, thanks for the speed and effort expended. Is this going to be a feature Terry will add during the GC interlude?

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Wed Aug 01 2012 09:25 PM

Team GC would be pretty cool. It would respark my interest in GC. I mostly sat out the last one.

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Wed Aug 01 2012 09:54 PM

I do not want global challenge to be a team game. It is designed as a personal goal oriented game that is a long haul, and against everyone. I think it should be left the way it is, and not become another team game.
Posted by: mehaul

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Wed Aug 01 2012 10:17 PM

Terry said he's going to do a lot of things he's had on his agenda during this GC break. I didn't say make GC a team effort. I meant having the TotY as a feature regularly churned out by the FT PC and not by the WC PC.

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Sat Sep 01 2012 12:25 PM

A hot summer has only slightly shifted the standings near the top - the most obvious movement in the table is due to Chain Gang and Comedy of Errors having been disbanded in mid-league. Both teams have been dropped from the cumulative list (although by virtue of points, Chain Gang would still be 47th).

But first, the monthly results:

classicalmusic/mensan are slowly eating into The Vicious Circle's lead - if they can keep this up, the October standings will see a new leader!

The Wild Mutant Noggins are working on the premise that there's a worm hole at the list bottom where all the pressure of the teams above will increase our density and force us through to the other side which would have to be the list top, right?

Thanks Wesley, at least for letting me get in an "Einstein-Rosen Bridge" quip.

So do I understand you right that you are actually trying to become more dense ? *big grin*

I don't usually do the cumulatives on odd-numbered months. They are far more manual work than the single month standings (which I have 90% automated) and there isn't that much movement on the table in just one month.

I don't think there will be any major moves except that about everyone will go up one place due to the disbanding of The Vicious Circle.

I took the time to check that for the teams that were in 2nd, 3rd and 4th place (no vested interest, here ;)) and they have indeed moved up a slot, with no change of order.

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Mon Oct 01 2012 05:52 PM

By my very quick check of the two lists next to each other, in the top 15, only the two pairs Devil's Advocates / Animal Farm and Music Moguls / Recycled Virgins have traded places. Everything else remains sorted.

It can be done. The llamas didn't start off at the top but had to climb slowly up the table (had it then existed). Good luck.

Well, if it wasn't a table you were climbing, it must have been something. May I inquire if it was slippery in nature as you tried to gain a foothold?

Lots of upward movement with almost no corresponding downward trends this time - this is due to the dissolution of previous leader The Vicious Circle, resulting in a universal uptick of one place for everyone. Otherwise we're seeing a quite stable leaderboard with no major surprises.

That's funny...I could have sworn we were doing better in games...especially Team Heroes. Oh well.

Thanks for doing the stats, Wes! Always good to see them. smile

And thank you for the encouragement, GTC! We're getting there, in about a decade, maybe. I used to be able to count on my fingers our active members, now they're popping out of ears. Most say it's because of the name...

Don't pay any attention to our team leader, encouraging other teams to climb the ladder? shocked Whatever next! (Except he's right, it can be done, lol.) (Just don't do it higher than step 2.)

Thanks for the stats, Wes... very prompt, and in the right order. wink

But if we don't do it higher than step 2, then in the cumulative 10 month, we'd be second and you third. tongue

Well done to the Llamas and classicalmusic/mensans. We shall be trying very hard to get ahead of you this month!

Thanks for the very quick stats Wes.

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Fri Nov 02 2012 04:04 AM

My team, Trivia Bubbles, is in a creditable position overall, considering October was a bad month with two of us on holiday at different times. Since we're lucky to scrape six players most days, that had a major impact for the month. Thanks for the stats, Wes - as interesting as ever.

Edit in accordance with Dippo's sensible comment.

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Fri Nov 02 2012 06:06 AM

Just a suggestion, but could posters actually mention their team name rather than just saying 'we'? It saves having to check profiles to see who you are talking about.

I keep looking for a team called 'We', and I've added it to my list of possible names for the future, but they don't appear on the list at the moment.
Posted by: Jakeroo

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Fri Nov 02 2012 04:47 PM

lol dippo, I agree.

Can I ask a stupid question? What does the "v" on the cumulative list mean? I'm sure it's been mentioned at some point, but I will readily admit that I am too lazy to wade through all the previous notes.

Anyhoo, I'd like to congratulate Kindred Spirits and Wild Mutant Noggins for moving up so many spots, as well as Midwest USA Players and Washingtons greatest being newly added TO the list : ))) Way to go folks!

Isn't it the opposite of ^, meaning they've moved down?

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Fri Nov 02 2012 05:02 PM

v is the down arrow (lost places), ^ is the up arrow (gained). Sorry for the rough ASCII smile

A team that would rather remain anonymous than have you look up 'our' name shouts from deep in the canyon bottom (v^2?) hoping and hopping to be heard, thanks again Cat Royalty for stirring the numbers in your tidy box. Those are numbers around us that you're stirring, right?

Speaking of teams, why is it that names stay on team rosters when a person has moved 3 and 4 times from your team to another team and so on? Isn't there a way to remove those names?

Thanks for the speedy service Wes. Congratulations to the classicalmusic/mensans and the Llamas. Pi are very happy with our third place, but with less than five whole points between the top 3 it's been a tight month.

Which brings us to the annual finishes. Only 50 can make the final rankings, but quite a few other teams have also put in a significant effort and should be recognized for it.

And we'll get to the top 50. Virtual bronze trophies go to the teams ranked 21 to 50, as there are:

Code:
21.	v4	Diabolical Devils		10,081.46
22.	^2	The New England Alliance	 9,997.03
23.	^2	Incredible Casuals		 9,922.81
24.	v1	The British			 9,884.09
25.	v4	Heaven's Angels			 9,875.33
26.	^2	Trivia Garden			 9,835.51
27.	^3	Phoenix Rising			 9,710.08
28.	v1	The Bees Knees			 9,683.05
29.	^5	Kindred Spirits			 9,681.54
30.	v4	Almost Angels			 9,640.58
31.	v2	League of Nations		 9,593.90
32.	*	THE CONSERVATIVES		 9,583.55

34.	v1	Dog Park			 9,481.44

38.	v2	The Lost Connection		 9,135.94
39.	*	The Scrambled Eggheads		 9,080.72
40.	v2	The Wild Mutant Noggins		 9,079.40
41.	^5	Quiz Makers Guild		 9,003.92
42.	v2	50+ And Proud Of It		 8,961.73
43.	*	All Right!			 8,957.43
44.	v3	Dynasty Dominators of Death	 8,950.91
45.	v1	Snape's Select			 8,823.01
46.	^1	European Players		 8,792.39
47.	^2	Midwest USA Players		 8,758.03
48.	*	Worldwide Wizards		 8,639.20
49.	NEW	United States of Trivia		 8,473.36
50.	v5	Bikers				 8,442.40


The Diabolical Devils missed the silver trophy range only by 25 points - here are the teams in 11th to 20th who will be proud new owners of such a virtual cup for their equally imaginary team trophy cases:

Code:
11.	^1	The Cat People			10,969.06
12.	v1	Animal Farm			10,837.96
13.	*	Recycled Virgins		10,834.41
14.	^1	Canadian Players		10,684.12
15.	v1	Music Moguls			10,653.99
16.	*	The Devious Demons		10,521.73
17.	^5	Wandering Quizzers		10,195.55
18.	*	The Regal Beagles		10,176.93
19.	*	Trivia Bubbles			10,264.47
20.	*	Calculators			10,106.61


Again, the gap to the grand prizes - imaginary gold trophies in increasingly large sizes for the top 10 - was very small with only sixteen points separating 11th and 10th place.

In 10th place, down from fourth last year but still every bit as opinionated:
Code:
10.	*	The Devil's Advocates		10,985.88

In ninth are 2011's third place finishers:
Code:
9.	v1	Joliettes			11,092.25

Our first new entry in the top ten (and also in the top 50!) is fueled by a certain sparkling yellow liquid:
Code:
8.	^1	The Beeronians			11,096.82

Three places up from 2011, the Clock is still being rocked with great power:
Code:
7.	*	Rock the Clock			11,158.51

As in 2011, "fun" and "win" do not need to be antonyms:
Code:
6.	*	Funsters			11,444.68

No longer an inn to chill, but a competitively and aptly named, successful team takes home the fifth place trophy:
Code:
5.	*	Tesla Coil			11,644.19

The persons of interestingness and knowers of stuff have also returned to the top 10, improving their standing from seventh place:
Code:
4.	*	The Moops			11,745.13

The prize for greatest improvement in 2012 goes to our third place winners - still lingering outside the top 50 for 2011, they shot up to claim a podium spot:
Code:
3.	*	Pi in the Sky			11,787.47

The two top teams have repeated their performance. They have however traded places, so this time Llama power fell just a few points short of repeating the title:
Code:
2.	*	Revenge of the Llamas		11,916.49

Which leaves us with a deserving winner - last year they lost to the Llamas by a mere three points, this year, they struck back and beat them by 46:
Code:
1.	*	classicalmusic/mensan		11,962.69


As it was last year, your prize money - varying amounts of question marks ranging from 5,000 for the unplaced finishers to a cool million for our winners - have already been deposited to your team accounts, waiting to be processed into beautiful questions and quizzes in 2013. You won't have a shortage, so make good use of them!

40th place consolation prize of a heap of ignored spaces, " and 's from the daily challenge assembly line, title sort decision division, will be put to great use. Thanks a heap! Do we have to mount them ourselves or is the plaque in the works?
Posted by: WesleyCrusher

Re: Team of the Year standings 2012 - Tue Jan 01 2013 12:32 PM

You'll have to mount them into your quiz templates yourself, but if you're short on those, I have a few dozen lying around that you could use.

Same here on the spaces anyway. Anyone care to acquire them in a trade for a British Railways Station Map?

Thank you for all your hard work in compiling the tables Wes.

As the new leader of the ClassicalMusic/Mensan team, it falls on me to accept this great honour on behalf of the whole team and for Dr Bob who formed the team & brought us all together. He sure can pick 'em! smile
We're very proud to be the Team of the Year on the best trivia site in the world and hope that all the other teams will give us a good fight if we want to hold on to the title in 2013. I'm sure they will.
Congratulations to all the teams who won a virtual trophy, especially the Llamas who made us work for the top spot right to the very end.

Congratulations to the CMMs, very well done. But as we know, it's tough at the top so watch out, there's a Llama behind you! Oh yes there is!

(Sorry, it's still Panto season. wink )

Wes: you're amazing for all the hard work you do (not just for this, but for editing and advice and fun text for the challenges and also because you're way smarter than me but still a nicer/more tactful person. I admire you (and no, I'm not sucking up as it's unlikely I'll be writing any quizzes in your categories anytime soon lol).
Merely appreciation for what you (and all the staff here) do.

Flopsy: You're probably right on the "beware" part lol. Your team is formidable and there is no hope for my personal contributions to count, as I've been told I couldn't win even a under-6 watermelon seed-spitting contest (hangs head in shame). Am particularly looking forward to more picture posts from you in 2013 though, as they have all been lovely in the past.

Anyway, "good going" to ALL the teams! Many have made incredible moves up the ladder, but the main thing is that folks have fun and enjoy the company of their team and friendliness between their competitors. I think the Christmas messages between teams showed that spirit.

Not that I don't LOVE my team, but I converse with more folks (in personal messages) from OTHER teams. They are each fabulous in their own ways. Sure, it's nice that our team won for a change, but I wish everyone lots of laughter and love for 2013. If you have THOSE two items, you can get through pretty much EVERYthing : )))

Sorry for being slightly "mushy". Happy New Year everyone.

Oh, if we can't be a little mushy at the holidays, when can we?

I joined CM/M a year ago and have found it a warm and caring community of trivia friends, who, nevertheless, were able to brook a little controversy from yours truly - and more than once! There's more to us than just a bunch of trivia nuts and bolts. Make no mistake about it: I am a small cog in this machine! I'm renewing my option for another year.

That said, I'd like to pay tribute to my former team (twice over in two, two year stints), the Joliettes. I remember encouraging this group of overcommitted, exceptional people to pick a month and trounce the opposition. They did, more than once. But, like myself, my former teammates just can't maintain that level of participation year-round.

So there you have it - many friendships formed from what Terry hath wrought, with a healthy respect for all our diversity.

Exigua pars est vitae quam nos vivimus. - Seneca

(The part of life we really live is short.)

Or, as I have reworked it in an original thought:

Life is short, becoming ever shorter.

Cheers, Chevy

Are there any "Team of the Year" standings for 2013?
I looked for a new topic on this but cannot find it.

To answer my own question, I see that the final standings for January 2013 can be found at:
http://www.funtrivia.com/friends/lastmonth.cfm

(The name of the page is: "Last Month's Final Standings".)

To access above link, go to the TvT game page.
See where it says: "My Team: Today - Yesterday - Cumulative | Last Month Team vs Team".
Click on "Last Month Team vs Team".

PS-OOOPS! That was only for the TvT Game rankings, not the overall rankings.

To go back to my original question:
Is there a new page for the overall Team of the Year standings for 2013?
