Have you ever thought about cleaning this thread up, and combining LD's first post and yours in a new thread?

It would be cool if info on the "old" challenges were put in there too, at least as much as we can still find given that many of us were not here in the "beginning"


I don't have time to do that properly right now, but great idea! I sometimes forget that I can edit anyone's post from any time in the past... I'd probably ask LD first since he did a better job with his than mine (my post being simple and his very thorough), but hopefully that can happen at some point.

I also don't think I'd bother with a new thread, since it was LD's idea in the first place and his first post could be edited to make it perfect with enough effort. It would be nice to see the all-time standings, but it's a fairly large project.

Actually, LD's colors kinda turn me off, as do the links, so I would prefer your style.

I will try to help and gather some info from the "older" days and put it here when I can.

I started to collect old info. This is what I found up the beginning of 2010. Some is missing, unfortunately. Earlier than 2010 is going to be harder, as I have found that they used to post challenges as fleets themselves.

2009 Challenges I Found. I stopped looking in November 2008 because that is when Woelf joined these boards. I think that is a good cutoff for the "old Era." Anything beyond that would be ancient history =)

Thanks for finding all this! I may look for the older ones someday, since I would want it to be complete if we're going to add more anyway. Smile

PS: I don't have school today either. Wink

Check out the updated main post!

I added volt's excellent archival work, reversing the order so the oldest shows up at the top and standardizing the link format for most of them. I didn't want to mess with Denton's cool post too much, so his formatting is the same except for me putting the links within the challenge title and putting the Cursed Challenge in there with some font-color finesse. Then I added my post from the first page to constitute the New Era, which so far has averaged 9 challenges per year! (18 over about a 2 year span)

There were a few notable oddities - due to a tie in one challenge, Captain_Nemo was able to win two challenges in a row without hosting in between. Possibly even more unique, puma_03 won two challenges but never hosted any. But here's the real kicker - Nemo had a bizarre pattern: hosted a challenge, then won 4 without hosting in between, and then hosted 2 more. Obviously things weren't as consistent back then, but it's still a funny thing to see.

With my usual affinity for a little bit of number crunching, we've listed 46 fleet challenges in this thread so far. Volt and I are tied at the top of the leaderboard with 6 wins apiece - I ranked volt higher because my latest win was rather unimpressive and he faced higher numbers of entries in some of his earlier wins, compared to me losing fleet challenges when I submitted a whopping 3 entries. Laughing Embarassed However, a win's a win, and since we joined at basically the same time, I calculated that we've each won about 17% of the challenges that have been hosted since we joined, so combined we make up about a third of the wins since mid-2011 (12/35). However, longevity obviously plays a big role, and between the number of past users who have left the site and the current users who haven't participated in all of the challenges, it's only common sensical that the most consistent participants would have the most challenge wins.

For the leaderboard I put active members ahead of non-active, with ties being decided by recent activity. I'd still like to go back and find any other old challenges to make this 100% complete. If anyone is ever extremely bored and has a ton of time on their hands, feel free to figure out how many people submitted X fleets per challenge (similar to Denton's format), and from there how many fleets they've submitted overall, win percentages based on wins divided by # of challenges entered, etc, etc. Laughing
