Thanks to JAP69 for pointing out an error on the South Carolina page.  I had incorrectly set up Palmetto Cash 5 as a 6/38 game in the database, rather than a 5/38 game.  (I have to hand-type all the game info into the database, so it was definitely my error.)

As a result, anyone who has posted predictions in the past for Palmetto Cash 5 had their predictions screwed up (and probably encountered strange errors when trying to enter the picks).

A total of 213 sets of numbers have been entered (in Pick 6 format) into the Palmetto Cash 5 database.  Luckily there weren't more.

I am looking for suggestions on how to deal with it.

My inclination is to delete all the predictions for Palmetto Cash 5 that are in the DB right now, as I'm sure they are not in the format that was intended by the predictor.  That may screw up the predictors' statistics, if they posted predictions for that game.  However, I'd like to get input from everyone before I do so.

As it turns out, there were only four people who posted predictions for Palmetto Cash 5:


  • NBey6

  • MADDOG10

  • JollSC5

  • ames139

(I'm sure many others tried, but were given errors when they tried to input the numbers.)

The problem is fixed at this point, so you can freely enter your Palmetto Cash 5 predictions now.

Feedback is encouraged and appreciated!

    Todd,

     It's an honest mistake that anyone could have made. Jap69 did a good job catching it. Is there anyway to correct those 4 individuals stats? If you can, good, if not so be it. I would wipe the slate clean and start over. Just my 2 cents.

      Carbob,

      I thought about that (cleaning up their stats), but it would be messy and a lot of guesswork.  I agree JAP69 did a good job catching it.  Thanks for your feedback.
