    I'll probably be the same with the American Nationals.
    And Russian...
    And Japanese...
    And Canadian...



    Have we got a definite entry list for US Nationals yet? I've just been looking on the boston2014 website, and can't find any.

    By the way, I've replied to your comment about Polina K in the Russian Predictions thread.

    I'll copy the lists straight into the post for now. Then when the results page is set up, I'll replace the lists with the starting order for the SP (like in the Italian Predictions thread).

    Phew! Thank goodness that was noticed in time! Because I was planning on spending this hour linking up ISU Bios!

    You know, I thought it was funny that Alissa and Jonny were on the list when they had already said they weren't competing. But, since it said "withdrawn", I didn't think any more of it.

    Don't worry about it, Mrs. P! I've made plenty of simple mistakes these past few days, so I can totally relate!

    I'm just putting up the revised list now.

    A few items of note before you start linking:

    ** Evan Lysacek is out
    ** Brittany Simpson/Matthew Blackmer ended their partnership, so they are out as well.

    ISU Bio links are now up.

    There were a few changes in partnerships in the Nationals entry list compared to the ISU Bio list, so here are the Bios I have used.

    Dance:
    Isabella CANNUSCIO (with Ian LORELLO)
    Michael BRAMANTE (with Kaitlin HAWAYEK)
    Anastasia OLSON (with Jordan COWAN)
    Ian LORELLO (with Isabella CANNUSCIO)
    Andrejs SITIKS (with Jekaterina SERGEJEVA)

    Thank you. I've kept them on the list, but have replaced the number with "WD".

    I am not playing the game, so I should not stick my nose in .. but I really cannot help myself #SorryNotSorry:

    CL_fan, I must say that I think you are going waaaaaay above and beyond the call of duty to provide hyperlinks to the many, many bios.

    To save yourself a lot of trouble, I think that it would more than suffice simply to offer links to the four ISU pages that in turn provide the bio links for each discipline.
    And a link to the IceNetwork general bio page where one can search by name for individual skaters.

    The wonderful Mao88 , to whom we all are so grateful, already spoils us with so many links to competition videos.

    Obviously, I admire and appreciate your dedication as well, CL_fan, but the rest of us are going to get even "fatter and lazier" , so to speak, if you spoil us this way too. [ETA, of course, you already spoil GS members in another way with your exhaustive research on streaming of competitions. ]
    I for one encourage you not to go to such extraordinary lengths.
    Just setting up the basic structure of the game (apart from the bio links) as you are doing is a sizable contribution unto itself.

    Indeed. While I'm sure I speak for most people when I say we love you for your effort and dedication... please don't burn yourself out!

    Wow! I wasn't expecting such praise. There really is no need!

    The thing is, I am not providing anything that we didn't have during the GP Game. The difference is, during the ISU competitions, the links are provided on the Results Pages. All I am doing is providing them in an alternative place.

    It always winds me up that the Results Pages of national Championships do not provide any information about the competitors. And when you are trying to make predictions on skaters you are unfamiliar with, it really is invaluable having information about them.

    I just thought that since I was looking up all the Bios anyway, I may as well add the links to the post while I was doing it! Like, it does not take a lot of effort - just copy on one page, and paste onto the other. It only takes a couple of seconds for each skater.

    The TV schedules, on the other hand, take an awful lot more time and effort. And, I do find making them out is draining.

    But I enjoy trying to help people out. The way I look at it is if I want to look something up, then chances are that at least one other person wants to look it up as well. And, what is the point of have 2 people doing exactly the same thing?

    Although I am the one that is posting all this stuff in the lead up to each round of the Game, I am not actually doing that much otherwise.

    The spreadsheet was set up by another member (pitterpatter).

    All the scoring is being done by other members (Li'Kitsu, guenever, Wilhelmina and FSGMT).

    They are the ones that are doing the hard work.

    So, providing all this information in one handy place is my way of making myself feel as if I am doing something productive towards the game.

    LOL, "something" would be an understatement, I'd say. Your energy and productivity are exemplary, as is your instinct to help others -- and to give credit to others.

    Hats off to the entire group that is orchestrating the game for nationals -- and to the group that orchestrated the game for GPs. (And to last year's group.)
