Hi guys, here are the NEW RULES for 2018. I will add to this/amend it throughout December. Feel free to post comments/suggestions:
COMBINED LIVE AND NON-LIVE: There will be MONTHLY, QUARTERLY and YEARLY TABLES.
LIVE ONLY: There will be QUARTERLY AND YEARLY TABLES:
Quarterly tables are by calendar months JAN-MAR, APR-JUN, JUL-SEP and OCT-DEC. This is to assist those who are more interested in JUMPS/FLAT etc.
The minimum participation for all tables will be 70%.
Monthly and Quarterly tables will be based on TOTAL PROFIT, yearly tables will be based on AVERAGE PROFIT.
Players will have two months (Jan and Feb) where their yearly totals will be valid (even if less than 70%). If a player drops below 70% at any time after 28th Feb, (on either the GO-LIVE or COMBINED tables), then their results will no longer be recorded on either table, but they can still enter NAPS as and when they wish.
This is to avoid administrative errors/work when players come in and out of the 70% threshold.
New scoring as follows:
5/1 or less: 5pts
5/1 or less: -14pts
70% will also be the minimum participation for your score to "count" on the leader board, although you can still participate regardless of your participation percentage.
THERE WILL BE QUARTERLY AND YEARLY REMOVER TABLES.
BALANCING SCORES AFTER NON-PARTICIPATION:
Please note, to balance removal scores if a player doesn't participate he will be given the average score for that particular day. He is allowed one of these per month and five additional ones per year upon request in advance. If they fail to participate more than once in a calendar month and haven't used their request then they will be allocated the lowest score achieved on that day.
This is to avoid big biases when the scores are really high or really low.
P.S. The order on the removals will be based on the players 2017 finishing position for full time players then part time players, then NAPS only. This should hopefully be better aesthetically and also those that did well in 2017 as they won't need to tab across so much. NAPS will be ordered by 2017 GO-LIVE finishing position.
