Evening all!

 

So I don't have to spend valuable programming time on upkeep for Bet MMA, I've made it so you guys can enter fighter profile data for me. This is an ongoing job and there's enough there for several people to maintain their VIP time by entering data. Anyone can do it, whether you are VIP or not. You can cash out the VIP time above 30 days earned (to be progammed in the next couple of days).

 

http://www.betmma.ti...ighter_data.php

 

To get involved, visit that link. Log in (with your MMA Tycoon login info), refresh the page and it will add you to the data entry team. Do as much or as little as you like :)

 

This is important stuff, so don't screw up. If you screw up on purpose, I will delete your Tycoon account. If you screw up by accident more than a couple of times, you won't get any VIP time, even for the stuff you did properly... so read the guide and do it all properly every time. If you make occasional mistakes that's OK, just PM me and I will fix it. If you think someone else's made a mistake, PM me and I'll check it out.

 

 

I've also decided to pay out VIP time for the handicapper directory.

Read about the handicapper direcory here.

 

I want more people making unit predictions so whatever unit profit you make, I will give you 3x that in VIP days. Don't guess though... if you guess, you'll lose. Make small unit bets to figure out the system, so a couple of units here and there and if you do well, start upping your unit bets.

 

I've promised I'd pay out VIP time for WOC predictions for ages, so I'll sort cashing those out at the same time too.

 

 

 

 

Again, I'm passing this all over to you guys so I can spend more time on Tycoon. Until now I've entered every bit of data myself and it's taken and enormous amount of time, so the more you guys help, the less I have to do myself :)

 

Thanks and fire away with any questions! :)

 

 

EDIT - I WANT TO EMPHASISE...  DO NOT GUESS AT STANCES! I need you to watch at least a round of fight tape and be 100% sure of the stance. This is the most important stat we are entering.

Yo Mike, this confused me 

"Birthday (YYYY-DD-MM) e.g. 1991-12-24"

 

You got the example the wrong way around, so what way do you want it?

YYYY-MM-DD

 

Cheers! You can just copy that from the sherdog profile for 95% of fighters.

Cool, I didn't know if you got the example the wrong way around or the way you wanted it wrong, since I'm used to DD-MM-YYYY. Better to be safe than sorry!

Just wanna check something... I see you're entering fighter stances already. Make sure you are 100% on those. I've put that at 3 days because I want people to watch tape and make sure that people aren't switching stances ever. That's probably the most important attribute we're storing.

I'm a good boy, doing my research Mr Tycoon

Some guys are harder to scout than others, Jose Aldo and Diaz were easy... Dan Henderson was a bitch, no videos uploaded in my country yada yada yada. But I've found an efficient way of doing this.

 

1. Go down the list and find a fighter you want to scout (E.g Dan Hendo)

2. Find his most recent fight (e.g against Boetsch) 

3. Tale of the tape FOR BOTH FIGHTERS can be put in

4. Watch fight and record stance, or... fast forward. 

 

Boom, you have like plenty of VIP days

Is it fine that for a fighter like Ricardo Abreu I found a wiki page but it was not English, I'd guess Portuguese but I also crossed it the Sherdog and the UFC website and the info matches.

Just english wiki pages please.

 

There's a site called MMA Core that has basically all UFC videos.

 

Try and get at least 5 mins on the feet to check their stances. Some people don't switch straight away and I really wanna get that right. Someone like Frank Mir for example fights entire fights southpaw sometimes and other times entirely orthodox. We've got some really interesting stats coming on the stance vs stance stuff;

Alright one round sounds fair, I'll do it properly but I was doing the ones I'm really certain off, I was going to do Benson Henderson but F that lol, I don't want the pressure of being wrong so I'm just doing what I'm confident with: Aldo, Nick Diaz, Henderson and Boetsch but I feel like I'm just whoring for VIP days now so I'll give other guys a chance.

Ah, well I added it so that may need to be removed - I assumed it would do until he gets an English page made.

 

Also Jim Alers wiki link is actually to Sherdog - is there a way to report things like that on the site?

 

Akbarh Arreola also has a wiki link that goes to sherdog.

yeah a couple of old ones will do that when i was entering "Link" and sometimes did sherdog and sometimes wikipedia. If you just post their IDs I can sort those, cheers.

 

And don't worry about whoring for VIP time - I would rather it gets done by someone I know will do it properly. There is plenty more to go around anyway - look at all those effing crosses :S

I'm not doing too much right now, I'm just digging up UFC, Sherdog and Wiki pages if they exist and filling whatever info I can pull from the pages using them in that order, 90% of what I'm filling in is a copy and paste from the UFC page. I'm just going to work down the roster as I have time and if/when that is sorted I'll look into putting some time into the harder info to find when I have time. I just finished the "A" fighters, going to take a break and get onto the "B" or whatever needs doing at the time.

Blah.

 

Tae Hyun Bang's wiki link leads to Yui Chul Nam's UFC page - it messed me up and I entered the wrong age, it's the same month and day but the year is wrong, he should be 32 but I enter it as 34 since I was giving the UFC page precedence. I also entered him at a BJJ purple belt but that was also taken from Yui Chul Nam's page.

 

I feel slightly racist that it took a minute to click that they did not look the same. >.> at least I noticed something looked off.

http://www.betmma.ti...php?FID=61#a_gb - wiki link is to sherdog

 

 

http://www.betmma.ti...hp?FID=491#a_gb - I thought Sherdog was listing him as 21 for some reason and UFC had him at 23 so I subtracted 2 years, my mistake. I'll be calling it quits at this guy for a bit.

Anybody know of an easy way to hear of a fighters BJJ belt? I guess just through scouting, the UFC will make a comment about it. But for some guys it seems impossible.
