I am sorry, but I did miss it. It happens, and that is why I ask every player to verify that I got their prediction on the prediction summary table before the game. I can correct any error prior to a game in less than a minute, but after the game, the correction process takes between 30 and 60 minutes depending upon the number of players.
Please, all players, verify that I got your prediction entered correctly prior to all future games.
I have corrected the results for the Lipscomb game to include kdale's prediction that I did not see, and therefore did not place on the Prediction Summary Table.
To all players, please check the Table before each game to make sure I did not overlook you, or that I did not make a mistake entering your prediction. Such errors occur. I am human. However, the ability to correct a mistake prior to the game is simple. The process to correct the error after I have updated the cumulative standings is very complex.
Thanks Professor. I did not get a chance to check it last time.
