If someone else only has time on a couple nights that week then they are missing out on many of the available points that week.
That doesn't seem right.
Yeah, that idea was just off the top of my head.
After a couple of comments like this I will agree that a bonus point each day awarded to the highest score thus far
would be a better idea. This would encourage early play, but not penalize those who cannot play every day so severely, and would make the administrator's job much easier.
But I still feel that this is much
better than doing one set of awards mid-week and one at the end.
Example scenario: Player "C" uploads the best recording on Day 1, and stays the best so far through Day 6. Then on Day 7, players "A" and "B" who had not previously uploaded submit first and second place scores, leaving player "C" in third.
Total points for the week:
Player "C"..........11 points (6 daily bonuses + 5 for 3rd place)
Player "A"...........10 points (first place)
Player "B"...........7 points (second place)
In this scenario, players "A" and "B" did not come out ahead by hiding their play, and that is what most members seem to want in order to make the competition as interesting as possible.
Seems like a pretty good idea to me.
