Bad data in rankings

Post by sdr2017 » November 13th, 2018, 12:56 am

Does anyone monitor the data in the concept 2 rankings? Does anyone correct errors?

I found that the average time for a 6000 M in the Mens 50-59 HWT section is anomalously high. The final entry is someone reporting a 6000M row in 32 hours! Ok, I would believe 32 min, but 32 hours is just not possible. It throws off the average time calculated by many minutes.

I would appreciate it if some official fixed the number. Is there someone I could contact, or do they watch this forum?

Thank you!

they may monitor but best to contact Concept2 directly as they are responsible for maintaining the rankings

Why even bother looking at the average?

I look at the median and the percentiles. They are much less sensitive to such problems.

32 hour average time for 6k. What is wrong with that? :lol:

I was feeling pretty good about my 6k time until this series of postings.

I don't look at it these days but it used to be okay and now you can filter the verified results only its way better.

The problems in the rankings are nothing compared to the problems in the challenges, the failure to move to verified rows or at least have a separate series of results for those that want all their rows verified makes it a crapshoot and not worth entering.
