| Hey ECs
For those of you who have done the Skilling Contests before, how did you go abouts calculating? I currently have screenies of all the beginning exps (and will be putting them on Word later so i can send them to you Arthur)
Excel good? or was there another way you guys have done it before?

| check out this tread.
yeah excel seems to be the best
personally i like mine better. I think its simpler. I made it so it auto calculates the difference when you put in a new current xp.

| I did that method, cept all on one page with the auto calculate formulas, however, K Arthur was talking about a macro that would take the experience right off the Runescape Highscores and put them onto a spreadsheet and calculate for him. All he would have to do is post the gains!
I don't know if he's figured out the macro, but he said he'd share it with the ECs and Star once he figures it out!

|seems difficult to do but if he gets it working it would definitely be more efficient then our methods.|

| If I was doing one I'd probaby just do a spreadsheet, but I'm like technologically impaired.
Speaking of which... I'd like to run a contest in the near future if that's ok with you guys. ^^
But it'd have to be in like 9 weeks when I'm on holidays again, just wouldn't work if I had school.
