As you may have noticed, the Botball Team Tracker has been released. As with any YAC project, we would like community input to make it as good as possible. This thread is dedicated to improving the Team Tracker. If you notice any issues or think of a feature you would want added, let us know here. I cannot promise your comments will be fixed quickly (we're unpaid students), but I can promise we shall listen and prioritize based on your requests. We already have many features we want to add at some point. Please look at our list before suggesting new ones.

Wanted Features:

* Add more filters (filter by: Score, Team, Middle vs. High School, Veteran vs. Rookie Team, columns to show, etc)
* Add graphs of data (bar charts for seeding, brackets for DE, line graphs of teams over time, etc)
* Get previous tournament data from KIPR (from more regions as well)
* Add where each team goes next to DE tables
* GCER / NCER papers (writers, links to papers, videos of talks, paper count high score board, etc)
* Robotics Showcase entries (writers, links to papers, videos of robots, etc)

Bugs:

Fixed:

* Lower resolution screens cannot see all columns
* Improve loading times
* Add Alliance match support
* Add documentation score support
* Add real-time overall score calculator
* Link to Botball Live videos when we have them
* Add coefficient of variation to seeding tables
* Add more statistics to tables (normalized score for seeding, etc)
* Add winner column to DE tables
* Mozilla Firefox doesn't work

Also, I just loaded the page on google chrome and could not scroll horizontally and was unable to see past total score.

I added GCER / NCER papers and Robotics Showcase to the list. Can you tell me the resolution of the screen on which you couldn't see all the columns? I has a similar issue on my phone during the tournament.

I found a setting in the data tables to allow horizontal scrolling. A fix will be uploaded sometime soon (don't hold your breath). It seems only 1080p screens worked before...

The new script is online. Horizontal scrolling now works. Note that the scroll bar is at the bottom on each table. This may not be ideal, but it is the only way to do this.

A MAJOR update to the Team Tracker has been in development for a while now (since march 10). Codename: "faster than a sluggish bullet edition". The new version has a bunch on new features and improvements. A partial list of changes is:

Much improved loading times (down to near instant for fast computers)
It now works on phones (only tested on Android, but iOS should work too)
Firefox now works (except for some minor sorting issues)

Seeding changes:
The standard deviation has been replaced with the coefficient of variation (this lets you properly compare variation for teams with different mean scores)
A Z Score column was added. This column is a representation of the overall performance of the team in seeding (taking into account both score and variation) = (Zscore of mean + Zscore of coefficient of variation)/2. If you want to know which team did best in seeding, look here. It's 1 number that says it all.

DE:
winner id and name columns have been added so you can easily find who won
If we don't have a score for a DE round but we know who won, it will simply display "Win" and "Lose" for scores and appropriately assign the winner to the winner columns

Alliance support was added

Real-time overall score calculation was added. If you want to know where you stand in the overall rankings, just look (We won't get documentation scores till after the tournament has ended, only Seeding and DE in real time).

Major thanks to Daniel Goree of Norman Advanced Robotics for helping me with the math for DE Rank calculation and Dr. Tracy Foor of Norman North High School for a great year in AP Statistics which made this whole project possible.

I guess I didn't make it clear that the new version is not live yet. It will be in the foreseeable future. I'm hoping for a week, but AP tests are coming up and I cannot be sure that it will happen. It will be up when it's done.

I have an iPhone 4s, so I can run a test on it if you can get me the version.

I would love to do that Daniel, but that would mean giving you admin access to our test server which definitely won't happen. I have 1 bug remaining so it may go live fairly soon.
