Wow, that deck is so nice.

The Ballad of Mel Cooley (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 20 March 2021 15:58 (two years ago) link

The one I'm using was last updated in 2017, do you have the link to the newer one?

Eleanor of Accutane (Leee), Saturday, 20 March 2021 16:28 (two years ago) link

Ah! Found it: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/184436527

Eleanor of Accutane (Leee), Saturday, 20 March 2021 16:29 (two years ago) link

Cool. I just did a search of the LL Message Board and Anki was mentioned exactly once, in 2014, so either not used or a well-kept secret.

The Ballad of Mel Cooley (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 20 March 2021 17:54 (two years ago) link

There's something wrong with the search, because I learned about it on the board, and not in the thread that shows up in the search results.

Eleanor of Accutane (Leee), Saturday, 20 March 2021 18:04 (two years ago) link

Yeah, the only reason I know about it is via the LL board. (I've never used it, personally.)

jaymc, Saturday, 20 March 2021 18:07 (two years ago) link

From that one post? My search must not be working properly.

The Ballad of Mel Cooley (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 20 March 2021 18:10 (two years ago) link

No, from assorted references over the past couple of years. I think the search isn't working properly. I did a search just for "deck," which returns 30 results -- but they're all from 2015 or earlier. It doesn't seem very plausible that no one has used that word in 6 years.

I've scratched my way to 11th, then noticed that I'm just 2 points away from promotion! Obviously a very packed field, and given my bad tiebreakers, I'm not going to worry too much about this; I'm just glad I've gotten a cushion between me and relegation.

Eleanor of Accutane (Leee), Saturday, 20 March 2021 18:54 (two years ago) link

OK I'm sharing this here instead of the LL board because I don't want to give my opponents an extra leg up on me (NA thankfully got promoted ahead of me): https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/445411558

You'd think the State Attorney would be in a higher rundle

“It violates everything that should be honest and straightforward about our elections,” Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle (D) said on Thursday, noting that investigators are still probing the case as well as two other suspicious candidates in other state races.

argh tying 9(6)-9(5) is miserable

I gave them a 0 for gracenote because they had a .891 classical music

i had a week of 5 or 6 right and am on a week of 2 or 3, wheeeeeeee

are AnkiWeb and the Anki phone app somehow not compatible? Or am i doing this wrong?

Piven After Midnight (The Yellow Kid), Tuesday, 23 March 2021 16:43 (two years ago) link

They are compatible afaik

The Ballad of Mel Cooley (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 23 March 2021 17:01 (two years ago) link

when i searched for that Great Works of Art one before, 2 other decks showed up but not that one

Piven After Midnight (The Yellow Kid), Tuesday, 23 March 2021 17:05 (two years ago) link

okay well the answer seems to be that the AnkiApp that I downloaded and have been using is like a rip-off of Anki and is not actually affiliated with it?

Piven After Midnight (The Yellow Kid), Tuesday, 23 March 2021 18:14 (two years ago) link

WT...?

The Ballad of Mel Cooley (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 23 March 2021 18:27 (two years ago) link

I almost didn't get Gracenote because while I knew it I thought "that can't be right because the word note is in the question" -- fortunately I couldn't think of any other answer

Guayaquil (eephus!), Tuesday, 23 March 2021 20:52 (two years ago) link

I'm in 5th place! I think this is the highest I've reached this late in the season, and I still have a reasonable chance at promotion!

I know that there's been talk about how this stretch of matches (going on 10-11) have been historically easy, but I don't care, I'll take it.

Eleanor of Accutane (Leee), Tuesday, 23 March 2021 22:18 (two years ago) link

Ok what the hell, I've secured promotion?!

Eleanor of Accutane (Leee), Friday, 26 March 2021 14:53 (two years ago) link

Congrats! I've had a pretty good season by my standards, going into the final day at 9-6-9. Most excitingly, I've set a personal record for TCA.

jaymc, Friday, 26 March 2021 15:30 (two years ago) link

Yeah, me too! I was on a tear and have since lost my last 6 in a row (lol?) but should finish in the top eight in C.

G.A.G.S. (Gophers Against Getting Stuffed) (forksclovetofu), Friday, 26 March 2021 15:40 (two years ago) link

good season here too, i was expecting to get knocked back down to C but i've held my own

na (NA), Friday, 26 March 2021 15:41 (two years ago) link

Pretty good season yes, was in promotion placing after MD 22, with all in my own hands really, but then went on a fair loss to the rundle leader followed by a none-too-flattering 2(3)-6(3) defeat. I seem to be guaranteed a 4th or 5th placing in Meridian B. (Promotion isn't totally off the table I guess, considering the occasional higher-rundle attrition, but I'm not too bothered; contending in the top of B certainly has its charmes vs struggling against relegation in A.)

anatol_merklich, Friday, 26 March 2021 19:43 (two years ago) link

charmes even!

anatol_merklich, Friday, 26 March 2021 19:43 (two years ago) link

anyone have any very best wrong answers they wanna rep for? i can't even get thru them, so many of them wouldnt even be worthy of a temporary dn change on ilx which to me is the bar u have to pass for a VBWA

Kompakt Total Landscaping (Will M.), Friday, 26 March 2021 19:44 (two years ago) link

i was serious about "IM Cute" which in retrospect was more clever than "Tweet Cute" imo

G.A.G.S. (Gophers Against Getting Stuffed) (forksclovetofu), Friday, 26 March 2021 19:47 (two years ago) link

Someone on the boards posted Meet ICQute, which is a great deep cut.

Eleanor of Accutane (Leee), Friday, 26 March 2021 20:44 (two years ago) link

ninth-highest TCA, second-lowest CAA. so i finished second

the person whose stats i posted above won the rundle for the fourth time in the last seven seasons and got *eleven* more correct answers than i did. utter savage

mookieproof, Saturday, 27 March 2021 09:32 (two years ago) link

5th, third highest TCA

G.A.G.S. (Gophers Against Getting Stuffed) (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 27 March 2021 15:43 (two years ago) link

4th, finishing with a 9(5), which is always kinda fun. Highest TCA; 109 would even be top-half in the A rundle it seems.

anatol_merklich, Saturday, 27 March 2021 16:22 (two years ago) link

8th worst TCA, third best CAA, and second best defensive efficiency are why I ended up and overall.

Btw, the Rivers, Lakes, etc. is another deck I recommend. I almost got the Irrawaddy question right because of it (I went with Salween).

What's up with the fingerprint?

It Is Dangerous to Meme Inside (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 1 April 2021 12:37 (two years ago) link

With 18 categories, the total number of combinations is over 6 quadrillion possible orderings, so the theory is that with some tens of thousands of players, each one has a unique order of categories (ranked best to last or whatever).

Ovid-19 (Leee), Thursday, 1 April 2021 17:09 (two years ago) link

? i'm missing the context.

G.A.G.S. (Gophers Against Getting Stuffed) (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 1 April 2021 17:34 (two years ago) link

From the thread that kicked things off:

It occurred to me that, with 18 LL categories, the number of ways to order the categories far, far exceeds the number of active LL players (or humans in general). In principle, then, everyone might be expected to have a unique category ordering by Q% and that be a "fingerprint" of sorts.

Then Thorsten in a fit of procrastination decided to add it to the site, and now it's a thing.

Ovid-19 (Leee), Thursday, 1 April 2021 18:18 (two years ago) link

yikes, okay.

G.A.G.S. (Gophers Against Getting Stuffed) (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 1 April 2021 18:40 (two years ago) link

It's hard for me to imagine that *no one* else shares my fingerprint (6BGE147FA8D9I2H53C, if you must know), given that there are some correlations between strength in some categories and weakness in others. But maybe!

jaymc, Thursday, 1 April 2021 18:53 (two years ago) link

Wait, Thorsten’s fingerprints only use letters.

It Is Dangerous to Meme Inside (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 2 April 2021 23:47 (two years ago) link

Just submitted the draft questions for my 1DS. Feel kind of weird.

It Is Dangerous to Meme Inside (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 11 April 2021 03:38 (two years ago) link

Looking forward to the 1DS this week that one of you smithed.

It Is Dangerous to Meme Inside (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 11 April 2021 14:25 (two years ago) link

And just got my first feedback from a tester. Good stuff.

It Is Dangerous to Meme Inside (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 11 April 2021 23:26 (two years ago) link

Thanks James! We're still polishing it a bit, so we're cutting it close.

Tahini Coates (Leee), Monday, 12 April 2021 14:41 (two years ago) link

Think I just read on the magic spreadsheet that one has to turn it in two days before it goes live.

It Is Dangerous to Meme Inside (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 12 April 2021 14:43 (two years ago) link

Yep! And just submitted, so it's all ready to go.

Is yours "Dude, Where's My Car?"

Tahini Coates (Leee), Monday, 12 April 2021 18:19 (two years ago) link

Ha, no. Did you use the Bulk Uploader?

It Is Dangerous to Meme Inside (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 12 April 2021 19:48 (two years ago) link

I did (definitely beats copy-pasting a dozen times). It can however be a little wonky, but trying again seems to iron out the wrinkles.

Tahini Coates (Leee), Monday, 12 April 2021 19:53 (two years ago) link

Mine is not live until May.

Yeah, there are some subtleties to the Bulk Upload, but overall seems to work pretty well.
