New version of WrestleStat!
« on: September 08, 2016, 08:20:26 AM »
Let's get right to it; what's new in this release?

1) The architecture went through a complete overhaul which has drastically increased the performance of the website
2) Website design completely re-written to try and make me look like less of a beginner in that area. Feel free to give suggestions :)
3) Prediction engine (PE) has been added. This is a cool tool which analyzes all of the matches for 2 wrestlers and comes up with a score prediction. You'll see match results (predictions) just like normal matches. This shows up on the Wrestler Comparison pages (http://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler). You can also see team predictions from the Team Comparison pages (http://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/dual).
4) Now that the prediction engine is in place, the Dual Rankings process has received a major overhaul as well.
      a) The old version of this process was to just take the rating of all 10 starters and add them together. Very boring and un-scientific.
      b) The new version utilizes the prediction engine exclusively! All 77 teams are pitted against each of the other 76. Of each of those matchups, the 10 starters are taken from each team, and each weight's matchup is run through the PE. Calculate the team scores for a mock dual by adding the match scores together. Repeat this for every team and all of their opponents and you come out with their expected win/loss record. If there's ever a tie using this scale, then the tie-breaker is determined by using the old versions ranking (from a).
5) (Coming Soon) Data Integrity Team - I'm in the process of developing a workflow process (approval process, and todo queues) to help share some of the [data] load it takes to keep up-to-date. I have a small team of users that are helping with this stuff while they beta test the code for me. More on this in the coming months.

I hope everyone likes the new site. It has taken me an incredible amount of time consisting of some extremely late nights in order to get to the point it is today. Thanks for visiting!

Andegre, I appreciate you site and all the work you are putting into it.  I do have a suggestion.  Why not also become the leading repository for all the statistics in wrestling (it is in your name after all)?  Fans love to debate such things as who had the most pins in a season, etc. (If anyone knows please tell me).  Unfortunately, there is not one place to go and find that kind of info.  Hammonds wrestlingstats.com is a valuable source but is no longer being maintained.  I know that this would be a huge undertaking but I think it would snowball as more and more people contributed to it.

Hey Jammen, I saw your post on Guillotine but hadn't responded to it yet.

Do you mean most pins in a season, tech falls, etc? Or are you talking ALL TIME?

Most pins in a season, with a different category for pins plus tf's.  I do have an unofficial list of all-time pins on this forum:

1) 109 Wade Schalles
2) 94 Larry Bielenberg
3) 91 Ben Askren
4) 87 Howard Harris
t5) 76 Hudson Taylor
t5) 76 Dan Gable
t7) 73 Jayson Ness
t7) 73 Ed Banach
9) 70 Chris Taylor
10) 69 Taylor Walsh
t11) 66 Corey Olson
t11) 66 Len Kauffman

But how about consecutive pins?  So much is unknown and uncatalogued.

Word I have with consecutive falls is Gable with 25.

Sure, I can do this. It was actually on the old version of the site, but I didn't think anyone actually looked at that page so I didn't worry about converting it.

I'll put that in my work queue...
