We now have a predictions application installed on the board that you've probably seen other places. It's a bit limited, but will serve well enough for some fun throughout the season. We've started out by including 4 leagues: EPL, Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga. Each has it's own leaderboard. There may be some minor prizes for the winners of each league, but that is yet to be determined.

The functionality is fairly simple. Each round you pick the winner of each match for that league. You get a point for each match you get correct. You are welcome to play all leagues, or just the one that interests you. I encourage you to play them all though, as we may end up having a "grand prize" for the member with the highest combined score from all 4 leagues.


A few helpful notes:

1. To access the application, simply click the "Predictions" link in the menu bar. Or, alternatively, follow this link: http://www.tiki-taka...php?app=pickems

2. Please keep in mind that because this app was designed by a 3rd party, support may be limited if we find bugs or issues.

3. Keep a close eye on deadlines for picks, which are midnight the day before the first match of a given round in that league. Some rounds have a very early match!


If you have any questions or comments, please leave them here.

@Roger does clicking on submit picks and resulting in the SAME page with submit picks mean that it has been submitted? i just did mine for the English PL.

If you go to the main page of a pool, say for example the EPL, it tells you how many picks you have made at the bottom of the page, for example:

You have made 0 correct picks out of a total of 10 games picked in this pool.

That's how I know it accepted my 10 picks for matchday 1 in that pool.

It's Swansea vs United this weekend and not Swansea vs City. Consequently City play Newcastle.

Crap. I'll make the change.

@Raúl

Ok, fixed it, also fixed the same mixup in future rounds that were already up.


If anyone finds mistakes like this, please either post in this thread or PM me so I notice, thanks!

A couple of notes about this application:

1. You can see who everyone picked for each match (once a match has started and picks are locked in) by clicking the "trend" for that match:

2. You can see your own results listed in the "result" column once the matches start to get updated with results:

3. Leaderboards for each league will show who's winning that pool overall, and who's winning it for a given round.

4. Very important: You can change your pick right up to kickoff of that match (as long as I get the kickoff times entered correctly). Don't count on this, but keep it in mind in case you want to make some last minute changes to your picks.

5. Have Fun!!!

Shame it doesn't work out as well when I actually have money on the games.

Is there a way to have an overall leader board for picks across all 4 leagues?

Not the way the developer made the app. I may be able to hack it and do this though. Will look into it.
