Alright, a lot of you have probably noticed the new stickied yet locked thread called "Results Archive". The idea for this was originally from valoem, who wanted the results posts of nearly every past tournament moved into the Tournament Results room, and then I came up with the idea to consolidate all the main result posts to a single thread. Now, thanks to a list compiled for me by valoem, we have all of the results posts that could be found in that thread, ordered chronologically. What does this mean? A database and history of results since the beginning of competitive smash. The problems? Well, there are a few. First off, the mass-copy method of transferring posts unfortunately removed most of their titles, so it's pretty tough to tell which results go to which tournament. Secondly, having an archive is one thing, but having a navigation for the result posts themselves is entirely another. So, to put this collection to better use, I'm going to try to organize the tournaments in this thread by year and month, so it will show a complete history of the tournaments.

So essentially, that's what we need help with now. We're going to need a few (or better yet, a bunch) of dedicated people willing to go through the archive thread and a) post a link to the post and the correct tournament title (so that I can edit it and fix it), and b) dig up the date(s) of when the tournaments occurred so it can be properly catalogued in this thread. Now, to help you in this, the following post of this thread will contain links to all of the tournaments currently listed in the Archive, so you're not going in blind.

To get the url of a specific post, simply click on the number over the upper-right hand corner of the post, and copy the url from the page that opens. Your posts should be similar to this format:

http://www.smashboards.com/showpost.php?p=1705295&postcount=11 - Dutch Tournament 1 - [Month]/[Date]/[Year]

or for the more vB savvy:

Dutch Tournament 1 - [Month]/[Date]/[Year]

So dive right in! The list in the second post contains the urls to all of the threads used. As a general rule of thumb, the threads with a lower number (the last number listed in the url) are from earlier tournaments. That means, the results listed in the archive thread are arranged from the threads with the smallest numbers at the end going up to the larger ones. Also, don't be afraid to post a bunch of links at once... but it helps if you don't dig up info that someone else has already figured out. Also, if you post the number (as they're listed in the following post, from 1-174) of the thread you used to dig up/verify this info, I can edit that info into the bottom portion so people know which has already been finished and which hasn't, and we'll also have a complete working list with links to the original threads!

And finally, as far as current/future results are concerned, just leave a post in this thread in much the same format as I have shown above, except have the url link directly to your results thread, and it will be added to the archives.

numbers refer to numbers in 2nd post, link(tourney name) is to post in Results archive thread, and date is as close as I could get it (up to a day off). Unless stated otherwise in the results post or 1st post of topic, I based date off the date of the results post. If the results post was between 12:00am and 6:00pm, I said the tourney was the day before the post. For the remaining 6 hours, I went with that day. The links are in chronological order.

That's it for DC area tourneys.

Thanks for the help nookrulz, but what I meant by "finding the post" was getting the link for the post in the Results Archive thread, not the post in the original thread ^_^;

And valoem, you can help in the way described in the first post of this thread, by just finding which thread listed points to which post, and the proper name and date for that tournament. Or, you could start off on your original list and just add the name of the tournament beyond it. Up to you. Basically any way that helps me fix the info accurately is good.

Edit: Thanks for the work nookrulz. I'll be updating things as they come.

I've updated everything posted so far... however, I'm noticing that some (a very small portion) of the threads contain partial or unofficial results... one of the things to fix up once this is all organized. Nothing to worry about for now though ^_^;

while I was going through the big tourneys, I noticed a couple DC area ones I missed (112, I think there was 1 or 2 more). You have not yet updated those.

Omni Edit: Just added 112 and BOMB2. Let me know if there are any others.

I'm confused, are you pulling these posts off the topics? It looks like they are no longer with their topics, which disturbs me somewhat. I've been doing research for a Midwest history project and I'd rather like the original threads intact.

originally, I was linking to the results posts in the topics themselves, but he said he wanted me to link to the post in the stickied topic that has entirely results posts.

Approximately the first 10-15 threads (in order of the list) had the post physically moved, which I admit is my error. The rest of the posts were simply copied from their parent threads, which left the original thread completely intact. I should be able to re-copy the original posts back to their parent threads once we determine where the posts are in the thread.

And Great Marth, as of now this thread is attempting to cover all tournaments that have had threads here on SWF, not just those considered major.

Alright, a lot of you have probably noticed the new stickied yet locked thread called "Results Archive". The idea for this was originally from valoem, who wanted the results posts of nearly every past tournament moved into the Tournament Results room, and then I came up with the idea to consolidate all the main result posts to a single thread. Now, thanks to a list compiled for me by valoem, we have all of the results posts that could be found in that thread, ordered chronologically. What does this mean? A database and history of results since the beginning of competitive smash. The problems? Well, there are a few. First off, the mass-copy method of transferring posts unfortunately removed most of their titles, so it's pretty tough to tell which results go to which tournament. Secondly, having an archive is one thing, but having a navigation for the result posts themselves is entirely another. So, to put this collection to better use, I'm going to try to organize the tournaments in this thread by year and month, so it will show a complete history of the tournaments.

So essentially, that's what we need help with now. We're going to need a few (or better yet, a bunch) of dedicated people willing to go through the archive thread and a) post a link to the post and the correct tournament title (so that I can edit it and fix it), and b) dig up the date(s) of when the tournaments occurred so it can be properly catalogued in this thread. Now, to help you in this, the following post of this thread will contain links to all of the tournaments currently listed in the Archive, so you're not going in blind.

To get the url of a specific post, simply click on the number over the upper-right hand corner of the post, and copy the url from the page that opens. Your posts should be similar to this format:

http://www.smashboards.com/showpost.php?p=1705295&postcount=11 - Dutch Tournament 1 - [Month]/[Date]/[Year]

or for the more vB savvy:

Dutch Tournament 1 - [Month]/[Date]/[Year]

So dive right in! The list in the second post contains the urls to all of the threads used. As a general rule of thumb, the threads with a lower number (the last number listed in the url) are from earlier tournaments. That means, the results listed in the archive thread are arranged from the threads with the smallest numbers at the end going up to the larger ones. Also, don't be afraid to post a bunch of links at once... but it helps if you don't dig up info that someone else has already figured out. Also, if you post the number (as they're listed in the following post, from 1-174) of the thread you used to dig up/verify this info, I can edit that info into the bottom portion so people know which has already been finished and which hasn't, and we'll also have a complete working list with links to the original threads!

And finally, as far as current/future results are concerned, just leave a post in this thread in much the same format as I have shown above, except have the url link directly to your results thread, and it will be added to the archives.
it is not real to look over weigh archive. It will occupy a lot of time and him I patrachu on a game

Every time i try looking at one of these results thread, it tells me i cant view it because

Eikelmann, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.



what gives?
