The Pit / Regarding Fansites ... GEOCITIES IS CLOSING.
« on: August 25, 2009, 06:48:06 AM »
I didn't know where to put this, but since this is the subforum for fansites, I felt it would be most helpful here.

GeoCities is closing for good in a few months.  I suggest moving your servers if you use it.

The Heart Room / The Best Legends Team: Mathematically Proven!
« on: August 12, 2009, 12:58:17 PM »
I created a scorecard system to determine the best team ever on the show.  Here's how the scoring worked.

THE MOAT
- 20pts for 1st, 15pts for 2nd, 10pts for 3rd, 5pts for 4th
- 2pt deduction for every 30 seconds that elapses

THE STEPS OF KNOWLEDGE
- 11pts for the first question right, 10pts for the second, all the way down to 1pt for the eleventh question right
- 2pt deduction for an incorrect question

THE TEMPLE GAMES
- 10pts for winning a half-pendant game
- 20pts for winning a full-pendant game
- 10pts for winning a tie-breaker
- 5pts for winning a tie-breaker via the other team getting it wrong

THE TEMPLE
- 25pts for grabbing the artifact
- 25pts for getting it out of the Temple
- 10pts for finding and picking up the hidden half-pendant
- 15pt deduction for taking an incorrect route

The maximum number of points as such is 140 (20 Moat + 30 Steps + 40 Games + 50 Temple).  While 145 _is_ possible (20 + 30 + 30 + 10 + 60 Temple) for teams with 1.5 Pendants, it never happened.

And now, here we go:  the countdown of the twenty best Legends teams!

I'm currently undergoing some superbly detailed advanced statistics, and if you know any information, I'd love any assistance.

What I'm trying to find:
- Quickest completion of the Silver Monkey
- Steps of Knowledge with the most asked questions
- Frequency of each Temple Game ("pulley pillar", "bungee soap mat", etc.)
- Quickest/slowest moat
- Most frequent half-pendant locations

Stuff like that.
