@tryasta,
Thanks!

BTW, do you know which defensive tactic I used in my own 22? The one you so vigorously had to defend against my criticism in the U20's. It worked really well for us then and me now. Thank you! Embarassed clown

LOL.

Good to hear that. I quote a certain sparky saying:
tryasta quoting a certain sparky wrote:"be careful with that defense. Use it wisely. It is a high risk-reward defense".

I'm been trying to figure out who to award last season's trophies to.
Is there an archive of last season's standings @Pantherus and @Bren ?? Can we set one up?

From believing what Bren said in a post last season, and the automated "comments" from repeat signups for this season, I am close to certain that these are the winners. The trophies are ready to be awarded but have the "wrong" mouse-over titles so have resubmitted with the new tier names. Trophies to be awarded soon.

Prem = Championship Winner = Melville RFC 39230  
Champ = Premiership Winner = Mud Dogs 19747  
Vaikona cup = Championship 3rd Place = Direwolf Straits 20581  
Kember shield = Championship Shield Winner = Mean Team 19581  
Cottier shield = Premiership Shield Winner = Belfast Cobras 19778  
Gair shield = Emerging Clubs Shield Winner = Buccaners 21279
Molia bowl = Championship Bowl Winner = Levin Vipers 20158
Heartland =  Emerging Clubs 2nd Place = Kibworth RFC 19886
Emerging = Emerging Clubs 3rd Place = Bay of Plenty Bulldogs 484

I confirm the Levin Vipers won the Molia and I think it is safe to assume Melville won the Premiership. Probably donkeysaint can confirm the Buccaners won the Gair and I know for sure the Heartland was won by Kibworth.

There doesn't seem to be an archive so I'll swing it over to Pantherus but the comments are accurate on the sign-ups are accurate so I think you've got the winners correct especially considering this post.

When there are new trophies, we'll unaward these trophies and award them the new ones right?

Yes I presume you can add trophies and then retroactively award them for previous seasons. So yes would remove these "current" trophies then.

However I thought I would award trophies now so people don't bitch, and I'm not confident of getting these new trophies in a timely manner, even with donkey's generosity.

Cool. Yeah, easy enough to remove trophies and re-award them. Sweet.

I've got the placing data from the last few NZIs; just have to build in the interface to display it.

I've updated the standings but there's some weird stuff in there that Panties will need to look at (namely the two fixtures made for Herc-WuhC and the unaccepted fixtures) so keep that in mind.

Nice!

The cups look great! For the kiwis, I imagined massive golden and silver statuettes, standing on a wooden base. A bit like my avatar. Smile

The usual problem when I try to do anything fancy like that is the 28x43 size...

You spend 2 hrs to get the image you get, then you scale it down to 28x43 and you realize it will never work.

That is why I KISS

I would say the cups have an amazing level of detail for such small pictures. The same is true for your golden and silver kiwis. Well done!

My objection is that the kiwis look more like plaques than the grand prizes they are meant to be, though.

A simple search for "golden kiwi bird", produced this.



Could be a good template?

"Mirror, mirror on the wall.." Wink

Perhaps we should just do what Pantherus suggested and keep the ones we have, adjusting the ones that need adjusting?

When the kids sleep later today I'll dig up the existing trophies from the S29 winners and see what we've got.

Current trophies

Premiership
Championship
Vaikona Cup  
Kember Shield  
Cottier Shield
Gair Shield
Molia Bowl
Heartland
Emerging

These are really good ones, most of them. What do we really need to change?

IMO, the Championship trophy should be silver and the Vaikona Cup in Bronze (simple re-colour, is that possible?).
The Gair Shield should become the Cottier Shield, and be used as a template for the Kember (Gold) and Gair (bronze).
The Molia Bowl should be bronze.

The only ones that would be nice to have from scratch is a silver sheep for Heartland and a little bronze baby kiwi for the Emerging clubs, again IMO.
