    Just wanna get mine done and out of the way. Cat remember, next week is a double-header again on the 4th ...

    Getting down to the wire here. 12 events remaining in the year including this one.

    Updated the standings and I've got 16 points to catch up on Fed. Although with the average dropping the lowest, etc., who knows where everyone really stands. I'll redo it including the average and dropping out the lowest scores closer to the finish line.

    Also, I'm skipping pick 'ems #34. Somehow, somewhere, the numbering system got messed up. I've got 34 events scored as you can see in the pick'ems standings page, but last event was #33?

    Demetrious Johnson vs. Chris Cariaso - DEC
    Donald Cerrone vs. Eddie Alvarez - DEC
    Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier - KO 1st
    Tim Kennedy vs. Yoel Romero - DEC
    Cat Zingano vs. Amanda Nunes - DEC

    Dominic Cruz vs. Takeya Mizugaki - Cruz DEC
    James Krausevs. Jorge Masvidal - DEC
    Patrick Cote vs. Stephen Thompson - KO 2nd
    Brian Ebersole vs. John Howard - DEC
    Kevin Lee vs. Jon Tuck - DEC
    Manny Gamburyan vs. Cody Gibson - DEC

    FOTN - Cerrone/Alvarez
    POTN - Cerrone
    POTN - Thompson

    Strange. I don't know if it helps any, but you posted all the scores for every event in the main thread, except for the first 2 of the year (FN #34 and FN #35)

    Doesn't really change the numbering system. If you look at the first page where the standings are, I've got 34 events with winners listed. It must have been that one of the double headers was listed as 1 pick 'em challenge, and I scored the 2 events seperately to get a winner out of each card.

    Fixed it. Posted the results from 1 and 2 in that page as well now. Totally forgot we had like 20 people playing at one point. Hopefully we can get more to stick around next year, with a few tweaks to the scoring system.

    SO, for next year. What kind of format do you guys want to go with? I'm totally open to suggestions for it, and the guys who have consistently picked this year will have their opinions carry more weight.

    The only one I've pretty much decided on is ...
    Anyone missing an event, will get a score of the minimum score obtained in the event MINUS 1.
    This also applies to people joining a few events in. They will be given the MIN SCORE - 1 for every event they have missed so far.
    (This replaces the rule of dropping the lowest 2, and having average result plugged in).
    *Note on this rule - The 'minimum score' must be the lowest scoring person who has picked ALL fighters/methods/rounds. Players picking only fighters will not be included for the minimum score, because they did not pick all outcomes.

    Gotta re-word it a bit maybe. But basically if someone misses some, or joins mid-way, they're not at too much of a disadvantage.

    Other possible changes include, but not limited to:
    - Restructuring of point totals for any/everything (more points or less points)
    - Dropping the method/round and making it only picking the winning fighter
    - Dropping out POTN and or FOTN
    - Adding in odds for picking winning fighter (ie everyone gets like $100 put down on each of their fighters or something)
    - Play-off format for final events of the season, maybe for only the top 4 guys or something, or a big bracket
    - Dividing it into bi-yearly challenge, or quarterly (everything resets to 0 after 6 months or 3 months and a champion is crowned)

    I dunno. That's it off the top of my head. Hopefully getting some promotion for it on the main page closer to the end of the year. And also hopefully getting the admin to get a prize going for the winner of 2015.

    Anyone like/dislike any ideas there, or have their own ideas? I'm also willing to take a vote on it with everyone who regularly participates, before any rule changes occur for next year. Which is basically the 11 of us at this point ...
