    JosephD scores are missing too. But having a fixing mistake feature is a good idea Badseed!

    In the third chart down, you have Cole coded as a Hero.

    For the Sits out Challenge penalty, it appears that you deducted 15 points from Joe, while there's just a 0 under Lauren. There's also a ? in the first column of that category, as there was on the first page (maybe that was a placeholder for when you were deciding the values). So, I'm not sure what the value is supposed to be, but I imagine they're both mistakes...obviously you'll deduct some points, but 15 does seem kind of harsh considering that's also the penalty for quitting. Even Simone only lost 10 points for getting voted out It just dawned on me though that the zero for Lauren might be because her tribe lost, she didn't earn any points this week, and we don't have negative points, so the only mistakes might be the question mark and Joe's 15 point deduction.

    Don't sweat the mistakes Badseed, I'm sure there'd be far more if I was doing this. All your hard work (and your corrections) is much appreciated

    The sit outs, I can confirm is correct. What I'm doing there is saying "Your team won the challenge, but you sat out so you don't get the points." For Joe that means gain 15 for the victory, but lose 15 for sitting out, so it's not a loss, it's a net of zero. Lauren's team lost, so they all got 0 points, so for sitting out she gets -0. (I know that part doesn't mean anything, but I work in finance so meticulous recordkeeping is important to me.) As you can see, the number of points they lose in that row depends on how their team does, that's why it's a question mark.

    I'll monitor how much the sit-out penalty affects the scores, and if it skews them too much, I'll change it in the future.

    Ah, got it! I actually really like your logic of subtracting the points their tribe got for winning (or getting second in) the challenge I don't think there will be a problem with this skewing the scores as you're only taking the points that they would have gotten for their tribe's performance away. The "you can't sit out back to back challenges" rule will also help to prevent any one player from being in that situation several times.

    Here are the fixed tables, I'm hoping everything's sorted now. Idle Idols is the biggest winner of this adjustment, jumping up a fair number of places. RiNGO our non-human player is the big loser, his loss of captain taking away all the points that the rest of his team earned, leaving him scoreless for the week. We've got a 7-way tie for 4th place, so it remains very crowded at the top.

    Badseed, I really love that last chart ^^^^ on Team Progress. So cool to see at-a-glance where everyone ranked their team members.
