Over the past week or so I have been thinking about a reward for those that predict every week, but also an incentive to try and get everyone to predict every week, and the idea that I came up with was for all those people that predict for every single game in the season (League and Cup), then at the end they will receive a bonus.
I have decided not to incorporate it into this season because it isn't fair on those of you that have not predicted for every fixture so far.
So, because I would rather have your feedback, rather than just to add the rule, I have added a poll, listing how many points you think should be awarded (I think 5 should be the maximum) and I have also listed an option for the rule not to be added.
Please can you reply to this thread and state why you have selected that specific option, so that I can get more feedback.
I myself am going to chose 5 points, because I think for those that predict every week deserve to be rewarding, as predicting for every week (which does involve a lot of predictions too) deserve a nice reward, and I also think 5 points gives people that more incentive to try and go for it.
Not for me, either. Isn't the incentive to predict more already built in with the rule that if scores are equal the one with more predictions is favoured? I've always thought that was a bit cock-eyed anyway...
Doesn't look like the idea is popular with everyone , as you are the ones that make the prediction league worthwhile to run though your say is final, and if the idea isn't well liked, then that won't get put in.
As I said, I had this idea when I was thinking of things to try and make the prediction league better, but I do understand that not everyone can predict every week and that by the end of the season if someone was 1 prediction out and lost to someone who had predicted every game by 1 point I can see the flaw of the idea now.
Because the idea hasn't faired well thus far, I don't really see the need to keep this open any longer than it already is, so the Admin team can close this and remove the thread.
Just one note though, if anybody has any ideas that they feel could make the prediction league better then get in touch .
