Conference Score Board

Post by kofdog » December 30th, 2010, 10:35 am

Not sure, if this has been suggested or not...or if it's there and I'm just blind. But I was checking out the site today and thought, I wonder how the other WAC games ended last night and I had to leave this site to go find out. Could there be a conference score board? Not the end of the world if I have to leave this site, but I do like it so...
Thanks for all the hard work!
Kris

The only problem with this is that it would have to be updated manually. Right now we don't have any data feeds to pull scores and such in. If I could find a way to automate the process then I'd be cool having something like that. Until that happens it isn't likely to be added though.

Feeds...mmm...I'll keep my eyes out for one. RSS the easiest for you?

RSS works but I can use pretty much any type of feed. Or even if there is a widget or something that someone provides that can be added to the site. I'm pretty sure that live-rpi.com uses a feed from somewhere but I'm not sure if it's free or not.

I may have found a feed that will work. I still need to talk to the other Admins on this site to see what they think of the idea before I add it and we'll need to find somewhere to put it. I'm thinking that the footer may be a decent place for it to appear...that way it can even update automatically under the chat window when everyone is in there.

The feed does indeed work for this purpose. If Aglicious gives the go ahead and we can find somewhere good to put it then I will get it added within a couple of days.

Take a look in the footer....it updates every minute when games are going on so if you're sitting in chat during a USU game, the scores under the chat window will automatically update.

I wish there was. Maybe you can make one up.

Sorry, been kinda crazy at work so my... You Rock! ... Is a little late coming, But you do. That is just perfect!!!! We should stop bashing the AD's for a while and I'd gladly show this site to Tom Hale. Maybe he'd count it as a big blue donation or something... Ok stretch maybe but I will anyway.
