The mobile site needs improvement, particularly the Past Predictions Leaderboard. I find it hard to see the categories after I clicked a user in the leaderboard.patsymaloneParticipantJoinedFeb 17th, 2017Total Topics2Posts86March 8, 2017 at 10:24 am #1202032091

Greeting Tom, One of the things I noticed that changed this year was the way the odds work. Well, work in the sense that two years ago, when you picked a category to win the oscar you could lock something in at the those odds, and if you ever changed them the odds would switch to the current odds. Paul even made reference to this in a recent podcast when he mentioned that the winner two years ago picked spotlight and left it out from just so she could keep those odds. It seems like the way it works now, you can pull over the best odds at any point. For instance I would check the odds once a week or so and if there were longer odds on the left, I simply pull them over which would sure me I have the longest odds to work with for my final picks. The odds seem to hold puling them over from the left rather that making a prediction. (once odds are pulled over to the right, they stay that way, two years ago they would change if you moved anything up and down.)
Or if you are truly trying to use “racetrack” odds (horses)…you should have the odds change for everyone all the time. When you bet on a horse at the track, you might bet a horse at 8 to 1 and if that horse goes to 1 to 1, then you get the odds 1 to 1. That would make things a level playing field rather than a lot depending on when you pulled odds over.
Just my thoughts.Karl VincentParticipantJoinedSep 19th, 2014Total Topics24Posts343March 9, 2017 at 4:52 am #1202032708
