Problems with the Pool

Post by D » Tue Jul 22, 2008 12:20 pm

As many of you are aware there are some problems with the pool, at this point I don't know if they are problems with the pool or do to a virus attack on the database of this site. The virus attack on this site has been repaired altho I'm not sure it won't happen again all I can really do is monitor it and prevent any real harm from happening in the future.

As for the pool what's done is done .... I was also effected by last weeks problems all I can really do is hope it works properly this week :cross: If you are affected with wrong outcomes this coming week please report them in this thread. As a precaution I would recommend everyone re-select thier picks for this week.

Good luck everyone and sorry for the inconvenience

Something STRANGE GOING ON :o

Twilight Zone? :hypno:

Maybe we should scrap it and start a new one with next weeks games???

Maybe a good idea. I always bet on the Lions and checked last night before I went to the game and then today, suddenly I am an Al's supporter and got zero points.

The Pool has been frozen in time for a while now.
The Lions retool...never rebuild!

OK...NOW I Know something is strange here...

First off...I bet my Ticats to beat the Argos last week...it showed I bet Toronto :o when the results were published :x

I had checked it several times...just to make sure!

Now the system won't update!

I have bet this weeks games early and have been checking back to see if the board has been updated, only to find that my bet for the Winnipeg game has been changed to a Winnipeg win. :? This happened twice
(the first time, I thought perhaps I screwed it up...but I made sure yesterday it was AWAY WIN...even went back and checked it last night...All OK)

Tonight I checked it again and that bet has been reversed!

Too Bad someone is screwing with it! :thdn: I know that "D" has put a lot of work into it! :thup:

I just checked the "Pool" again.

After correcting my choices again this morning...my Winnipeg/Hamilton pick has been reversed. :x

Is there anyone looking into this?

I had the same thing happen Woody. Don't let it ruin your day. Somebody will get around to fixing it when they get a chance I'm sure. :beer:
Argos Suck! Since 1869. Accept no substitutions or pale imitiations.

The one true and original. All time head to head won loss record:
Hamilton: 124 W 91 L 2T! Now you know why the Argos Suck!

You're not quite as mad about it with a drink in your hand. :wink:
Contrary to popular belief, the most dangerous animal is not the lion or tiger or even the elephant. The most dangerous animal is a shark riding on an elephant, just trampling and eating everything they see.

Not mad Ron...and I wish I did have a drink in my hand...just goofing off at work right now!

But seriously...

Is there anyone else noticing that their picks are changed around?

Yeah, since the restart I've had one change for the good, and one change for the bad... always seems to be the last game of that week too.

Look. We can go round and round about this all the live long day. Let's keep it simple. I embody amazement. Can you dig on that? Good. Then meet me on the corner of rock and roll, and bring a flask of something that burns.
