Make-Yer-Own Oscar Pool Page

The Make-Yer-Own Oscar Pool Page is up and running at http://www.defectiveyeti.com/oscars. I made some changes to the back-end, so let me know if you find any bugs, experience any bugs, or have any suggestions.

Update: Should be working fine, now. Let me know is that's not the case.

I'm having trouble with fleas. Can you help?

It won't let me see my page. I just keep seeing the "I reckon you're here for one of two reasons" page.

Rory Parle,

You sure you're in the right place?

Created the page ok, but I can't edit it - I just end up at the "I reckon you're here for one of two reasons" page.

Matt, I had the same problem as wetwebwork and Rory (I think). I can create a page, but then I can't access it or edit it. If I type in the pool number it gave me, the program just gives me a blank stare as if I had just asked it for bacon. I tried it in both Opera and.. IE. Neither one worked.

Ahhhh...it's broken! Help us Matt...

First, I am so glad you are doing this again. Last year my friends and I enjoyed it very much. I did notice that the emailed results seem to be missing line breaks at Best Makeup forward.

Thank you!

Yay for fixing stuff! Thanks, Matt0r.

It does not store the predictions anywhere, so you will need to keep the emails and, once the winners have been announced, do the tabulations yourself to determine who won your pool.

It was my understanding there would be no math.
