Tournament Reporting / Ratings Page Errors

Postby clintolsen on Sun Jul 02, 2017 4:43 pm

Hi All,

I wrote some scripts to extract all of the tournament results and ratings info as they appear on http://icheckers.net/ratings/ and after doing some data validation I found a number of typos/errors. As you can see from the dates of the tournaments below, data integrity has improved dramatically since the end of 2010.

Some of these fixes (top list) are quite obvious when looking at the other results in that round, but others (bottom list) will require some more research. I will likely need assistance from others to identify the correct fixes for the bottom list.

The following are fixes that I believe need to be made. In most of these cases, the ratings page recorded the player as having played themselves, or two players playing the same player:

In all of the below cases, the results for the pairing don't add up to the correct amount of points available in that round - either too few or too many.

Seems we need a rating team of 8 to do this.One guy looking over that among of tournaments will make alot of errors.

In Chess ratings are taken seriously being a Grandmaster in chess is like being a Doctor.In checkers All players look at one title in my view and thats world champion.
