    I just tested it and It all works for me!

    I will create a demo account and test with that as well.
    I may need your user id and password to test with also

    I just realised what is happening

    The bonus round is pre-defined by me and you can not select which of your games gets you a bonus. Though it's no a bad idea, it is a bit of a logistical nightmare. I may code it in after round 5 or something.

    As it stands I will select anywhere up to 8 bonus games per week :)

    You'll also have to alter the calculation code as well for when the tips are calculated

    You havent paid, so you dont get the bonus games.

    The bonus games only apply to you if you have paid to enter the competition

    You should be on 12. i have fixed that now. There is a bug in the code if you have not paid, it didn't calculate your points to 2

    You are kidding right?
    You have up until round 10 to pay, but those rules and regulations have been there for nearly a fortnight.

    The point of you missing the bonus rounds if you haven't paid, is so that it entices you to pay more quickly. There are also multiple posts with this information in it in the general forum, dating back several weeks there was most definitely enough warning

    Information: The 2009 Footy tipping competition consists of a win/lose/draw style tipping, entry for the tipping competition is $20 AUD with a part of your fees being donated to the McGrath Foundation. Your fees will further support the site and it's continuation.

    Prizes:
    1st Place: A large professionally framed 2008 Grand Final Photo, picturing the team and the crowd inset
    Last Place: a "2008 Premiers" Rugby League Ball

    Rules & Regs:

        * You must be a registered member of Silvertails.net to enter
        * You have up until Game time to enter your tips
        * Failure to enter tips on time, will give you the away team for the missed games
        * Depending on your location we may ask you for postage & handling money for the prize
        * All fees must be paid before round 10, if you fail to pay by this time you will be withdrawn from the competition
        * You will not receive bonus points, for bonus games until you have paid, there are at least 1 bonus games, per round
        * 2 Points for correct tip, 3 points for picking a draw, double points for bonus games

    Dan is right, it was up there all along about not getting the bonus points until you had paid. I just need to do something about my tipping skills to stand a chance.

    Thanks for running this.
    Seems we cannot see the individual results for each of our tips for each game of pervious rounds, nor our score breakdowns - just our total points in the ladder?
    Not important, but would be useful.
    Come on Sea Eagles at Brookvale this week!
