Hi,
I'm posting an article on the main page as well as a topic here. I'll describe the Survivor contest in more depth in this thread. Probably a little later tonight. It's like most Survivor contests where you pick the winner and you are only allowed to pick that team once. I've added Sand Dollars to the mix - although these aren't tied to your actual Sand Dollars from posting so what you win (or lose) in the Survivor Contest won't impact the amount that displays in the forums.

If you have any questions or problems post them here or drop me an email. I will try to respond one way or another. Thanks and good luck!

Bill

I'm getting a "URL can't be found" error when I try to submit a SWTS team.

I had a "sure thing" roster too. And now I forgot it. Great. I bet I end up in 113th place after week 1. I coulda been a contender!

Bill -

I noticed that the Survivor interface is essentially the same as the Pick 'Em interface (meaning the spreads are displayed with each team.) Are spreads involved in the Survivor game or is it just picking the winner like most other survivor games?

Thanks,

tip

Tiptonhr - just pick the winner. The spreads are there so you can see who the favorite is. Spreads DO NOT factor into this contest.

Moosen - same thing happened to me TWICE! If I ever find out who did that shoddy programming I'll have a few choice words for him...Oh - it was me :oops:.

More info on the Survivor Contest:

Each shark will be given $100 sand dollars to start the year. The object is to pick one team each week that you think will win and bet based on how confident you are that they will win. You are only allowed to pick a team once. Each week you will be given $100 more than the previous week to bet as long as you've won. If you string multiple wins together you get more money. The winner is the shark with the most sand dollars at the end of the year. So, it's not just about picking the winner as someone could go 17-0 and not win.

I don't believe we have an official prize like we do for the Pick 'Em Contest and Swim Contest but I'm sure Tony has an autographed card or Fantasy Sharks Tee around for the winner. Just send a self addressed envelope to him and he'll get it right out :wink:.

Edited 9/27 - removed the statement that losers would get S$100. You don't!

Will the Survivor contest entry and standings get added to the Contests drop down menu?

Looks like everyone's betting the whole S$100, so not much difference there!

Yes, the Survivor contest will be added to the drop down. I'll have to double check but I don't think you'll always be able to see what people are betting! It may be that everyone starts will $100.
