  1. New NAF Glicko Rankings

    Hi all, Some exciting news for NAF members today, as we are launching our new Glicko ranking system, implemented by Nick Harding / mubo. These rankings aren't designed to replace the Elo numbers you've been used to since NAF rankings began, they are simply a new way of processing NAF data and ranking coaches, and will run in parallel. The Glicko system is able to introduce new features that some coaches have wanted for many years, such as decay and greater reactivity. You can read more about how they work here and view the ranking page at thenaf.net here.  The system is currently in a 'soft launch' period, and if you experience any difficulty viewing the page or using the dropdown filters, please flag this up. The rankings will update on a monthly basis, and we hope the April update will be take us to a fully 'live' state. As we move forward, you can expect fun and interesting updates and developments to pop up on both thenaf.net and thetacklezone.net, and we'll advertise these as and when they become available. Finally, we'd like to acknowledge Kyrre for his great work parsing the games played in the database so Nick could work with the data and implement the system. Please join me in virtually patting Nick on the back for his fantastic work, and enjoy playing with the new system! Thanks, Phil. (P.S. Sorry for the English - but I thought this was cool enough to share! :D)
  2. Elezioni presidenziali NAF

    Hi all! My February TD blogs are up. Thoughts on tournament stuff can be found here and a tournament report (this time the Waterbowl - please forgive the massive image I can't seem to fix!) here. All comments in the relevant sections welcome! I'll probably stop dropping by and hassling you guys after this month, but will keep blogging.
  3. Elezioni presidenziali NAF

    Hi gang! I'm going to try and keep monthly blogs as I progress as TD. January's duo is now up. Thoughts on tournament stuff can be found here, and a report of a tournament I attended, this month the UKTC, can be found here. Enjoy, or not, either way, let me know by feeding back in the blog areas. I'll try not to come back and bump this every month, that would probably get annoying! Cheers!

I've set up a thread (if you're logged in to the NAF site, it's here: https://member.thenaf.net/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=7147) for if you have any questions , please pop over and say hello. I hope to see you guys at a tournament this year! Cheers! Phil.
