    Octal is used a lot in computing as well, especially as a sort of 'pointer' for bytes and binary digits

    Also im thinking of working on the CTAM leaderboard generator again
    Okay, thanks for the info!

    Excellent, didn't you make me the last leader board generator? Though having said that, you had to add each user in manually under a different name... Wouldn't it be better if we could just input the TSR data, and get a leader board somehow? Anyway, I anticipate the overall leaderboard! (whether I include PT or not, is another matter...)

    NEW DISCUSSION TOPIC:
    Is sprint Tuesday a good idea?

    Information: Every Tuesday (or any other day of the week that we decide) we have a competition to see who posts the most in 24 hours. A winner is declared.
    Leaderboards are drawn up based on either a points system or a winner-takes-all system. Any thoughts?

    Intrinsically, since 9 is number whereby it follows an obvious sequence ie 9, 18, 27, 36, etc - I presume that it would be a relatively easy number to count up in, as you will always know that the unit will increase, whilst the tens will increase. What could the number to reach be? I was potentially thinking that this could be an idea for a counting thread!

    Sounds like a good idea Although what would also be necessary, if that, during Sprint Tuesday, the 10 post rule remains in place - as that can't be lifted, for obvious reasons.

    Unfortunately, though, it comes under the same category as the previous "let's have more counting threads" ideas; we previously had a large cull of counting threads and we almost had a 2nd cull, so I don't think it'd be wise to create more counting threads until the current ones have been completed :yep:

    That is an excellent idea! However, would there be a limit to the amount of consecutive wins allowed, if consecutive wins are permitted at all?

    Hmm... Okay! However, as someone previously mentioned - due to the fluctuating nature of the threads, it may take quite a long time before all of the current threads have been completed! :yep:

    I know that it may take a while - however, when one thread is complete, we'll be able to create another, or resurrect one from the bin I believe it's a case of the amount of threads in action.

    Of course, the only reason I suggest Tuesday is that FG have a sticky saying tournament Tuesday, so I thought it appropriate. Shall I do a thread poll for what day to do it on?

    You could do a poll to see what other people think, but then again if the whole of FG are doing Tournament Tuesday, then that might be a good idea for us, have our sprint day as Tuesday too

    Hi everyone,
    one smaller competition we want to introduce to the counting threads is a sprint day each week. Where there is a competition to get as many posts in 24 hours. The plan is to make this a recurring theme each week. See the poll at the top of this thread to help us decide which day of the week to hold this competition. Thanks for your input! And other suggestions to modify this idea would be much appreciated as are other ideas for small in-thread competitions, just post it in this thread.

    Thanks.

    Excellent, thanks for creating the poll This should definitely get the post rate going up quite a bit

    I've voted already (but I won't say what day...)

    Okay, I understand now - perhaps you are indeed correct in stating that we should stay with the four current CTAM type threads, as to prevent them from being culled. :yep:
