Nice and helpful tool David! :)

I have to say though: I think you should consider different percentages for different species. I guess you make the cut at 90? Seeing Seifer's example: I'd rather post a 101 sitka than a 28 polar bear!

Its good but some species need some work, reindeer are scored weird because they get to 700+ but even a 550+ is a giant.
This is #99 on leaders and it says "88 good" and doesn't recommend to be posted in the TruRacs
(not shot by me)

Reindeer
Score: 616.418

Which is a bad thing now?

Someone new who is very excited about their first red deer stag scoring "only" 220 should better not post?

Pretty trophy shots should no longer be posted unless the score meets the minimal standard?

In short, no good score, no posting please, no matter if you are excited, would like to fit in, or have taken a good picture?

Just questions to make sure I understand.

Sorry Boypappa or whoever you are, you might think that you got an awesome 627.221 that is ranked #59 on the leaderboard near the end of the season, but he judges have spoken, it's not a true trophy animal, do don't you dare posting it! :)

Jokes aside, nice tool for people new to this game, well done. ;)

I still need to create links between the two. I wanted to get a feel for whether it would be used first.

At the moment the cut-off is 90 (% of leaderboard #1) for all species. For some, that number will need to be tweaked, but I guess we would need to decide what those thresholds become. Unfortunately there's nothing we can do in a situation where scoring changes and a new season doesn't start straight away (current Piccabeen Bay situation) since that creates huge gaps in the leaderboard. Nevertheless, varying thresholds can always be added. The problem is, people might always want the threshold adjusted to suit them, not that it really matters since this "rating" is just a rough guideline.

No, to all of the above. Everyone is free to post trophy shots of lower scoring animals, like I said in the TruRACS thread when all the debate was going on. To be clear, this is just a tool to be used as a guide for people that want to know how their animal ranks against those on the leaderboard. Nobody is obliged to use this, or to take the recommendation as gospel. It's not a tool intended to force users to follow rules, and if it was, it would certainly fail. It's just a way of getting a quick comparison of your animal against the current leaderboard #1.

Yeah, OK, point made. Like I said above, the thresholds need to be tweaked. And for the record it never tells anyone not to post. It makes a recommendation on what's worth posting and what isn't. The important word being "recommendation".
