There have been over 100 skills scores so far this year. There have been 4 that are over 100. I wonder when robotevents.com will update to the current game? Right now, they are over 4 months behind given they are still on last year’s game and almost two and a half months behind from when skills scores started rolling in.
It would be nice to be able to find everything in one spot and that one spot be the same place teams register. Right now, we have to go to the community sourced website to get the rankings.
Right, but we just established that robotevents doesn’t have the data on their front-end site. I was under the impression he was web-scrapping data off their page. Unless he has access to their back end that clearly isn’t where the data is coming from.
It would appear upon first look that they do indeed have the same information available. However, they probably don’t have any method by which they could/would know if a score was removed or changed. I am just reminding the forum that the official rankings are available only at www.RobotEvents.com. Have a great day!
My mistake, it sounded like you were saying the vexdb scores were invalid. I can’t know how vexdb gets their information, but in the past they have been extremely reliable and have matched the robotevents scores exactly. In any case, you’re absolutely right that robotevents is official.
But @Brad Lauer is just reminding people that only the RobotEvents site information is official.
As Brad implies, sometimes the information about a tournament is updated. I personally know of at least four cases where that happened last year. Nothing nefarious, just things had to be changed due to some data upload/data entry issues.
The case last year was that our friend from New Zealand (who does a phenomenal job with vexdb.io) said on the forum that he doesn’t know to re-download, re-parse, and reload the data until someone tells him. That could have changed by now, but re-polling all results all the time doesn’t seem likely. So, since there isn’t a subscription service for RobotEvents updates, if you want the new CSV files, you have to know they exist and go get them.
The information on the page you reference appears current. It would likely be helpful for you to point out which part of the information you know to be wrong, and the source you’re using to get the correct information.
