Completely right, every sentence you wrote. I had 1-2 result too, I am leading at this Gambirus liga competition, and any 3 points can be crucial at the end...........

But still same result..........

Why won't you, and others, understand that this is not up to BettingAdvice or it's moderators? Is it so hard to understand that?

Default Hi

Tabak, i understand, just found words "if [...], there is no sense in continuing the contest" a little bit too drastic for free contest with real money paid. As for sending a report, i did it few times with schedule issues, they always corrected it on the next day, so they should correct this mistake too.
Iguana, i think he understands that, because he already asked other people to report the issue too

Finally corrected!
IGUANA, if Bettingadvice owners and moderators weren't serious people, Bettingadvice wouldn't have been what it is now. All of us understand that it's not up to you, as moderators, but i think that it's not the same to send report one or two competitors and one or two moderators...or to send 2-3 reports or 10 and more

well I dont think it really matters who reports mistake, as the message you can send about wrong scores is handled by some internal mail delivery system, it's not like moderators use official BA email or something to report errors, so can I even sign my report message as president of the United States and it rather won't mean anything. i think it's more about number of reports about the mistake - because if they get like only 3 messages about wrong score, the people who handle it may think its false report or something, or just delay checking it thoroughly. But when they get like 100 reports in one day about the same score, I guess they will react faster.

I dont participate in Czech league, so I reported it after you mentioned it here (that was on late monday evening). anyways, it's good to know that everything is corrected now, but I suppose such thing will happen more than once again in the future. so we should just mention it here when it happens, so more people can report it and it can be fixed faster next time.

there are 7 teams from premiership playing in fa cup this weekend, and their games have been moved to tuesday/wednesday. i'm quite sure that whoever takes care of the schedule in the contest will unlock them soon, probably after the today's games are finished.

The developer of VBulletin forum engine's vbsoccer plugin didn't made yet the norvegian and swedish leagues. The latest league that he made is Euro 2012.

Everybody can follow the development of vbsoccer plugin here:
http://twitter.com/#!/vbsoccer_

It is possible that he will make the Norvegian and Swedish league on the latest day before leagues starting.

Even when leagues become available, its all up to Grefstad, who is the sponsor of this BA contest, to make it available here and most important promise cash prizes for these leagues. And its big money if we sum up all leagues, so I wouldnt hold my breath.

Morning everybody, just couple of question on my side:
1. is the Belgian Jupiler League to be considered over as per BA contest competition? I know there is a strange play-off mechanism over there, but I do not see any more rounds to pick FT results for.
2. If over, what happens when 2 tipsters are tied in pts at 1st spot, that's to say they r both winning it? it's 1st and 2nd prize shared in 2 equal parts or.....???

Thx for the feedback!
PS This is an amazing competion, I LUV IT, and many thx to Terje for making it available to all of us!!!

I guess it's over. Russian league has similar system this season and contest finished after the regular season

You've picked one game less, so you should be the winner imo.

Judging from previous seasons/leagues, I think the answers will be:
1. Yes, the Belgian season is considered over, as it was last year, and as it was the case with the Russian league. Also, same will apply for the Scottish league, probably.
2. Yes, there will be a share of winnings.

Well..I totally agree with it then..yes true I had 1 pick less as mentioned above, but shicne in the end was able to pick more correct scores than myself so he would have the edge in this case.

Ranking table showed my name as 1st probably because of same pts obtained with 1 pick less but I believe it's fair to share the 1st prize in 2 equal parts.

It's Terje to decide of course, for how much my opinion can count, I confirm my view to have 2 winners and prizes shared. Thanx

Fairplay and respect comes overall and it wont be 50 Euros to change somebody's life.
My congrats to Shicne, he did an amazing run and deserves the same as me the victory. Well done mate keep it up!

huh, what a drama at the end

In the last round I had four points from four matches
with the exact winners, but the wrong goal difference

Anyway, congratulations to all participants (especially to Barca-United-Milan)
,and big thanks to the organizers of this interesting competition.
As for the distribution of prizes I think the rule was merging the first and second prize and sharing in half, but whatever the organizers have decided I will be satisfied. Nice competition and a pleasure to be among the winners, cheers.

lol the last matchday was crazy indeed. I changed the result on Anderlecht game from 2-1 to 3-1 just seconds before kick off, so could have been tied up with your guys on top spot with 226 points... But it is what it is and i'm happy with my 3rd spot finish. Anyway, Congrats to shicne and Barca-MU-Milan

P/s: any chances to know when we will receive the $$?

Thanks

Terje should really think about adding me as a Main Page tipster for Scottish Premier League

8 points ahead of second place(s), with 8/9 matches less... awesome season for me.

Also, congrats to all the guys sitting on 2nd place. Really went down to the wire.

Hi everybody! Just a quick question from my side: what is the standard approach when a league is over and I am top 3? Is me to get in touch with Terje or viceversa? It's my 1st time among the best and I am not sure which the next step is...
Thx for the clarification!
Nice evening / night to everybody!!!

Just please (you and all other winners) be patient and don't start havoc here if you won't get any answer in next few days. Terje is busy with work and other commitments, so this may take some time before he visits forum, check contest results and sends all prize money, but everyone who won will be rewarded for sure.

Plus, I have a feeling he doesn't even know that the Belgian/Scottish leagues have finished already

Ok then thx 4 the clarification, I'll be patiently waiting for Terje to contact me so to start the reward process. I am not in a rush at all, and of course I am not puttin pressure on this. As soon as Terje will be free from commitments I will be more than pleased to get in touch with him.
Thx for the answer again.
Good Luck to all with the rest of the contest!!

I'm just curious if someone else noticed wrong calculated result in Serbian League:

Metalac-Sloboda Sevojno, which finished 0:1 but is calculated as 0:0.

I report for this result through link that I found in previous posts since I know that mods can not update it since it is maintained by third party, but 3 days past without correction and I report it twice.
I know there was same situation in Czech championship and there was lot of talking about that and at the end it was corrected so I just want to know if someone else reported also about this match.

What's with Swiss Super League ? There is 5 rounds to play but it's not open for betting. Yesterday and today we have games of 32nd round and we can't bet.
