TIDEFANS 2009 PICKEM CONTEST
WEEK 02(B) ENTRY (

Please read this before entering!

NOTE: I'm calling this week 02(B) since week 2 was invalidated by me this weekend due to errors. Next week will be Week 3 and so forth.

BE SURE you enter the same password as you entered in week 1. Otherwise your entry may be invalidated.

SUMMARY INSTRUCTIONS:
1) You must pick all 16 games each week. We expanded to 16 games last year to make it easier to accomodate all SEC games and a few others that might be a little more difficult (or interesting) to pick.
2) All prizes will be awarded at the END of the season. This will make it easier on me to administrate. So, if you win week 1, your prize will be awarded at the end of the season. See the rules for more information.
3) The 2009 pickem season will be 16 weeks long. This will help accomodate the 923 meaningless bowl games that are now played. :)

NOTES:
1) Note that picks will not be updated immediately. Instead, I have to run a program that updates them about 1 time per day or every other day.
1a) If you entered picks before Saturday, check back on Friday or Saturday to make sure your picks were entered.
1b) Be sure to save a copy of the page that confirms your picks! (in your browser do something like FILE-->SAVE AS)

2) After week 1, if you have made picks in a previous week, your name will appear in the dropdown on the pick entry sheet. Until then, you have to click NEW and then enter your username.

3) DO NOT use your TideFans password.

4) You MUST be a registered member of TideFans to participate. Registration is free, so signup if you haven't already!

5) You can enter the contest at any week. Thus, if you missed out on week 1, feel free to enter week 2B and future weeks. The season prize is for the member with the most points at the end of the season, so you're probably never out of it if you miss a week...unless you're a terrible picker like me :)

Please let me know ASAP via PM if you have any difficulties entering your picks. Make a post here and I (or a fellow member) can probably help you. Before asking a question please re-read this post! If you ask a question that is answered here, you'll most likely be referred back to the instructions anyway!

ENTER TODAY!

  4. DO NOT use your TideFans password! However, use one that you can remember in future weeks!

  6. GOOD LUCK!

Re: PICKEM: Enter your picks for week 02(b) **9/15/09**

What's up with the board saying I am picking week #2 when this is week #3.
capn-

It's actually listed as week 2b. This has to do with how I'm accounting for last week's problems on the backend and behind the scenes.

You are correct in that this is week 3 of the season. But as far as the pickem goes, it's week 2b.

Make sense?

Re: PICKEM: Enter your picks for week 02(b) **9/15/09**

My picks still aren't showing up.
Same here.
mine are not showing either


RIIIIGGGHHHHTTTT.... Assuming you mean when you click on your name in the listing picks don't show up. If that's the case, then.....

Please re-read NOTE #1 in the instructions above :D

Otherwise, I'm going to need something more than "it doesn't work" to solve your problem ;)

dave12-

I really don't know how to fix your issue other than by trial and error on your side... What browser are you using? Do you have javascript enabled? Have you cleared your cache? Did you enter your password? RE-verify that all things are entered properly.

Try all the 'usual' solutions then try a different computer (if available). I've tested on multiple versions of IT & Firefox and it's working correctly in each.

Brett,

I sent you a private message yesterday. Wondering if you got it because I haven't gotten an answer yet. Also, I still can't see my picks or know if I should do them again. Please respond back.

Thanks,

I'm having a good week thus far in my picks. And I picked for the tie breaker 62 points (60 was the total). I hope that doesn't come back to haunt me should there be a tie, seeing how Tiffin missed two extra points. :rolleye2:
