Cali Chapter Contest/Scorecard-Rules and Links Updated.

Post by Fundad » February 6th, 2012, 3:13 pm

Rules

All California entries count, regardless of the NAFHA members home state.

Scoring
1 Point for =Every Entry
1 Point for =Every County
1 Point for =Every Species
1 Point for =Every DOR
1 Point for =2014 County Record (The first entry of for a species in a county, for a given year)
1 Point for =2014 Personal County Record (In other words if you enter a skink in LA county for YOUR 1st time in 2016 you get a point)
2 Points for =County Record (True NAFHA county record)
5 Point Bonus= 25+ entries of a species in a county (Any species you record 25 of in a county you get a 5 point bonus.)

Every Entry MUST include
Species to atleast species level.
County (can be hidden)
Date-Time
Vouchered
And any questions on the entry itself must be answered on that entry.

I nominate Lawrence (Conservation Officer)to judge any debates regarding the contest.


This will give everyone a fair chance, encourage new data even from counties with a lot of records, encourage lots of data of same species (density), encourage visiting new counties (diversity)

Here is the link for the Scorecard, Thanks to Don

Last week I tried entering some recent finds but the location on the Google Earth page that comes up is way off from the correct location, so I stopped in my tracks. I was entering the coordinates in degrees/decimal minutes and the data base was converting it to decimal degrees. Most of my entries from last year were in degrees/decimal minutes and came out just fine. Was there a change in what's accepted?

PM psyon about it.. something might be different. He is consistently trying to make the DB better..

Did you know you can click on the wrench, above the GPS box, and then just click on the location and it will put it there?

I have no answer for you except to do it like a "real" human...take a pic with a camera, go home, upload to computer, put in photoshop, clean up, re-size, and upload to database. I know that sounds like a lot of work, but it's what most of us crap-cell-phone people do... :lol:

If you post your question in the main NAFHA forum, psyon (the database administrator) will probably tell you the answer. I suspect that Brian is right and you may need to upload your pics to a web album first. That's what I do and everyone else I know does.

Post by Owen » December 17th, 2012, 11:10 am

8,604 Total California entries thus far from 112 participants. We still have a ways to go to reach 10,000 records and the 15,000 stretch number now seems a pipe dream. It's understandable given the data ownership issue that popped up a couple months back.

If you made the top ten or any of the lists below, give yourself a pat on the back.

Keep it up, the 10,000 is still highly doable.

Brian Hinds has recused himself from the contest this year (maybe he just doesn't think he can compete with Hubbs ;) ), but since his numbers are significant, I'm including them in the categories.

I'm catching up my old stuff... I got the 2nd half April C. o. oreganus in tonight (28 snakes/25 records). Loads more to enter. If I do 50/day, I'll catch up by mid January.

I'll update the totals in a week or so.

Your Mono County Records are great, and are much needed. I love to see posts like yours it helps motivate all of us.

Well, if it's any consolation (or inspiration) for you, I am pretty much done entering for this year. You people all have 8 more days to try to beat the Hubbster. Go for it! Hit that 10,000 mark... :thumb:

8836 records for CA. That's 1164 short for those who are math challenged. I have 300 at best that I can enter. I was thinking about building a Tinker Toy and dowell 12" square grid that I could float over the CA Tiger eggs in the shallows in the vernals to get an approximate density count. With the tinkers, I can take it down and stash it plus it floats. I would then need to measure shoreline, blah, blah, blah...

So you're saying to go out and photo as many Batrachoceps and Taricha as possible and enter them in January, huh? I could get 200 more in the next week, but at what cost? :?

So, what's a realistic goal for 2013 since some of our most prolific 2011 folks aren't entering or have moved out of the country? Maybe 12,000?

Why can't I find the 2012 scorecard?...it seems to be replaced by the 2013 scorecard. Owen's getting a little uppity on the new scorecard...guess it's time to take him down a few notches on my next trip to CA...Heh, Heh... :lol: 8-) Pretty bad when an AZ guy kicks the crap out of all you Californians, huh? :o

Oh master Brian, you so rule. My 2013 just started out fast because I hit a bunch of new ponds. Lots of Ambystoma eggs.

Here's the scorecard link:

Outstanding Job everyone..

BTW it looks like Owen is going to pass me in total points, not an easy task. I am impressed.

Keith you do a great job recording much needed data from up in your neck of the woods..

:thumb:

Figures Brian Can't find the scorecard, he also doesn't know how to work my "Simple" DVD player at my house. We only watch about 20 movies a year on that dam thing when he comes over to hang out.. :lol:

Thanks Owen, I would be lost without you around here to help us these days. Thank You!

Great Job on coming in Second place too. Having a 1000 Records is amazing. (I should make a thousand records for a year Club Award)

The Total of all records entered in 2012, including out of state records and historical records for our Chapter members is
12,236 (That is close to 10% of all the records alltime in the Database).

Therefore I have to say.. The California Chapter ROCKS the place..

I thought the 25+ was a 5 point bonus...in fact, I'm positive that's what it says up top in the rules...You still did the math right for the overall scores so it's not a problem, but you might want to correct your typo. Thanks for sharing this Owen.

I guess it's a terminology thing. I should not have used the word 'point' and will change it to 'count'.
