CAPS Improvements?



January 23, 2007 – Comments (3)

Well.... Since you asked

Alot has been written about improving the scorekeeping in CAPS.

I agree with some of the ideas, (I have to hope any change will help my score) but the score will not be my biggest concern unless I get close to the top ten. (Fear not TMFEldrehad)

I am in this party to (at least based on my results so far) throw away points instead of dollars on my investing education.

But mostly I am here to learn from people generous enough to teach and to share their investing ideas and knowledge.

With that lofty goal In mind I would like to be able to search the CAPS sytem for Quills, light bulbs(5+ helpful pitches) most helpful pitches and pioneers and all the other lucky charms.

I would like all of us to be able to rate blogs (There are so many excellent blogs out there) and then search for highly rated blogs.

I would like to search top CAPS players based on performance without accuracy, and accuracy with more than x picks. (we could have more than one leader and a shot at a triple crown).

I would like to be able to search player rankings by more than one category at a time. (is that the same idea twice?)

Perhaps we could offer 1 point for each 5 helpful pitches or one for some number of helpful blogs instead of two cents.

O.K. thats it for now.

It is your game and I enjoy it as is.

I have no idea of the amount of work it would take to make these changes and I would never expect you do it except if you want to. I am sure there are some negatives to these ideas, especially the points for pitches thing.

Thanks for asking us though,


PS. I only just realized we could rate pitches, and I will start to do so.

You can actually do a search by charms already. If you click on any of the charms, you will be given a list of everyone with that charm.

We will definitely be allowing blog posts to be recommended - and then have top ten lists with the most recommended posts.

Some of those more nuanched searches may be available sometime down the road as we beef up advanced search.

Glad to hear you are enjoying the game.

Is there a list of charms somewhere that I cannot find? The ones in the 'help' section cannot be clicked.

You are correct.

But the charms on player pages are all clickable. Give it a shot.
