Ranking page for the 6K, 10K and Fit Git comps

Postby caffeine » Thu Feb 03, 2011 8:49 pm

Howdy!

Inspired by Philip's excellent work in the signature images for BikeJournal progress, and the infamous 'red triangle', I've knocked something together for rankings from BikeJournal, both ACF/BNA in total (which I believe is effectively Fit Gits) and the sub competitions (6K and 10K).

http://www.ipeddle.net/bna/rankings.php

Have a play, let me know if it seems useful. It will auto-update overnight each night (similar to Philip's signature images), and the 'red arrow' line in the table for the comps will move accordingly.

Going forward it should have daily history as well, so I can do up some more fancy stuff around trends once there is sufficient data to make it look properly.

I've managed to solve the riddles matching up the BJ names with forum names for the vast majority. If I have any wrong or if you know who one of the 'blanks' is let me know and I'll update it. Tomorrow I'll knock up a page so that you can change those things yourself.

If you join the ACF group at BikeJournal you will automatically be added to the correct ladders, but your forum name will most likely need updating.

Any suggestions for what else would be handy, or feedback let me know here!
Probably best to keep the 'gauntlet' challenge type discussions in the relevant threads, but this might make it a bit easier to see who your competition is!

Cheers!

Caff.

EDIT: I'll be doing some tidying up and adding of stuff to the page from time to time, so if it's broken or comes up looking weird some time I'm probably playing, give it 10 minutes and I should have finished :-) If it's more than 15 minutes post here.

Lol

Caff, i think you have just opened a can of worms. It doesn't look pretty further down the table. But nice job. So does numero uno get a medal at the end of the year or is it just perpetual bragging rights?

No prize I don't think, although I could put some pretty sparkles on their name and a gold jersey for next year!

I wouldn't have put it up if I wasn't sitting near the bottom myself, happily in the 200's so no personal gain LOL.

Now.... to get a mod to fix my silly mistake and move this to General rather than commuting...

EDIT: Which Christine did whilst I was mid-post. Thankyou!

Not really... although my web dev skills are 3 years rusty.
The longest bit was matching the forum user id's to the bikejournal ones, required a bit of detective work in some cases LOL.

It's a step in the right direction. My next item is to write something to collate my rides easily and in a way I like. Having seen MapMyRide, BikeJournal and some others each have good points and bad points. Certainly I plan to have it so that I can add an email address to Cyclemeter so that when the ride completes it emails through, then it gets sucked into the recorder (and injected into BikeJournal). Mostly because I am lazy and find updating things in multiple places troublesome.

If it works nicely and I set up GPX and KML uploads I might share it.

In the interim if there is anything people would like to make their lives easier let me know! I'm a newbie so I can't contribute much advice, and am not a mechanic so can't help there, so 'puter stuff is about my only way of doing my share :-)

Great to see the progress of the members and where one is in the standings. :shock: I see that there are a few people that under estimated their goals for the year or are just hustlers, setting low goals and then smashing it. :roll:

Yup! Breezer1 in the 6K club is on track to exceed 15K!

Actually I might add that in...

And done... the 'Actual' column now contains an extrapolated figure in brackets which is the end of year total if you continue at your current rate.

LOL, uncle arthur on this forum PM'd me the same question (MX-5 forum?).

No I don't, but I am surprised at the number of MX-5 drivers on a bike forum!

thats pretty cool caffeine, i cant believe i'm where i'm at on the table :shock: , i was going to be proud if i made 6666km :) , now everyone thinks i can make close to 15000 8) , that is a big ask especially when winter comes, but at the moment i will enjoy the time on the bike, clocked another 56km today on a group ride, so i will just continue on and keep lovin the rides at the moment. :)

Haha, there's a guy on the MX-5 forums with the same nick, and has a bike rack on his car.

Eerie coincidence then!

Great work that :D I really like the Actual as I'm trying to cut my k's down to around 12,000 a year (Last 3 years 14,000, 19,000, 15,000) with this little number I can keep and eye on my excess. :D
