Well thanks again!
I've had a play and haven't found any major problems. Just a few minor curiosities, just FYI:
It seems essential that the TR and TD tags be on the same line and also both be uppercased. Otherwise it's interpreted as a table with one cell. E.g. this doesn't work, even though...
I think someone tweaked it; the post content seems brighter. It's pretty close to being good! Here's what it would look like with two more changes:
(1) Border colors #444
(2) "filter: saturate(0.7) brightness (0.8)" on everything except post content
This prevents even very bright signatures...
I prefer dark themes generally, but the Night Mode theme here is no good because it makes the stuff you want to read really dark while a lot of stuff you want to skip over remains bright and eye-catching. See here for example: There are 4 sentences of actual post content here, but they're very...
Here's a simple one:
How it used to work: Separate cells with "|", rows with "\", and wrap the whole thing in [ table ] [ /table ] tags.
So the above...
I also recommend the book -- it's not too technical and illuminates some interesting areas of the game.
Some chapters that stuck with me are on the illusion of momentum and the long-term physical burden of travel on Perth teams.
Ever since the style upgrade, site performance has been truly horrendous. (Desktop version, Chrome.) It's just about unusable for me now.
It's slow at almost everything, but especially when scrolling. I have a modern PC and I often see the browser visibly struggling to paint the page every time...
It does seem like AFL Ratings points overweight aging stars on the decline and underweight rising talent who will probably get more games. But this may be wrong; I could believe that Champion Data gets it right more often because humans tend to overrate the chances of the exciting new kids and...
I don't think anyone has published 2019 game-by-game tips yet (not even Squiggle), which AutoTip relies on. They will arrive before the start of the season, but not sure exactly when.
Thanks for the feedback!
This is how I look at Sydney's 2018 -> 2019 player movements using AFL Ratings Points:
Daniel Menzel +338.2 *
Ryan Clarke +222.2
Jackson Thurlow +129.3
Alex Johnson -8.1
Jordan Foote -21.9
Kurt Tippett -75.3...
I mean statistically speaking it's more likely that a team will win about the same number of games next year as they did this year, as compared to winning a lot more or a lot less. Ladders tend to be reasonably static... you notice the bolters but most teams stay roughly where they were.
Carlton are easing toward 5 wins in my more recent forecasts.
There is a quirk where the forecast always implies the coming season will be very tight, with 1st on ~15 wins while last wins 4 or 5, even though this is unlikely. That's because someone will suffer a bad run with injury + lose a...
