There are some useful informations such as the current round, the starting date of the tournament and the full list of games with outcome.
If someone knows more about the termination-api and how to get these data from there, please tell me. Otherwise I’ll just continue with the V1 source.
Aren’t the bumps a normal effect of the recent ranking updates? Anyway congrats on 666th post, @S_Alexander did you think your baby tournament would reach that far as to reach the number of the beast in the forums?
The yellow curve moving to the right is that.
The spike at 1d is just a glitch in the source I read.
That could also be viewed as a consequence of the recent ranking update because something happened under the surface and the variables I was reading before are no longer updated or reliable.
I don’t know if they will ever be fixed, so I don’t actually know what I should do now. All my charts involving rankings are someway broken.
I say wait a bit and see if it stays unreliable or if it seems alright. It could be some under-the-hood changes, a glitch, or perhaps an eventual consequence of the ranking updates as the new points get redistributed?
I’m not sure how much of what I just said is possible but it’s never a good idea to throw your work down the drain if it might not be 100% broken ^^
I had some issues in the last days and my toy seemed broken. Out of memory errors. Database slowing down. And I don’t even know why: pieces that worked for months now are experiencing new problems. I managed somehow to download data and take my picture, but still don’t know how to put things together.
Changes since last update:
107 games completed (wow!)
13 players disqualified
58 players completed all of their games, one of them with 9 victories
one less player with all of his games still in progress , now there are 7
In my search of old records in the 1880s, I stumbled upon the term 郵便碁 (play via mail), and one of them is supposed to be the first-ever play by mail game in history played between June 1883 till Nov 1884. I feel it could be called the oldest long correspondence game.
It was not finished when this was published and still on-going according to the description, and sadly most likely never was finished because the white player 村瀨秀甫 (Murase Shūho, or more widely known later as Honinbo Shuho) died the next year in 1885.
And there was a second play by mail game played by the same black player 三戶與彰 at the same time between June 1883 till July 1885. And it was finished (white resigned)
