Has anyone noticed a speed improvement on the new website?  Previously mine took a few days to appear, i've uploaded a about 100 races and after 2 hours only two have appeared.  Is it worth me looking back this afternoon or is it still taking a few days to appear?

Matt

That issue has been fixed.  It wasn't entirely slowness, it was just getting stuck.  It is processing much quicker now.  We (and several other clubs) now have 500 races loaded.  If it is still going slowly for you I'd report the problem, may be something in the data that is causing the problem.

It's loads better. You'll see them this afternoon.
Even better now that it's got all the classes.

They did appear later on in the afternoon, although from home some of them appeared virtually straight away.  The new layout for the reports is much better although the confidence factor doesn't seem to climb ver fast.  I've got around 4 years of data uploaded and the highest we have is a 0.5 confidence, has anyone got much higher than this and how much data did it take?
 
Also is anyone struggling to get on this morning, i'm getting an internal server error :(

c.f Iíve seen 0.7 (see above, fireballs) Iím sure the c.f. raises quicker when youíve got more of the same class in a race rather than a few doing many races.

Im getting error as-well. must be working on it

Alex

The confidence factor for the calculated PY for a class is a composite of three factors
- sample size (bigger sample = higher confidence)
- variation in calculated PY (lower variation = higher confidence)
- change over time (lower change = higher confidence).

This was a first cut at establishing high confidence.  As the database grows it will be possible to look at other measures.  But in general the more data you have for a class, over a longer period of time and with the resulting PYs in a narrow range then the confidence factor should rise.  0.7 is pretty good.
