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.

Spreadsheet

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!

If I was doing one I'd probaby just do a spreadsheet, but I'm like technologically impaired. tongue.gif
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.

> I'm working on a Python script, similar to the one used on Tip.it's website calculators to automatically get the xp's but it's taking a little more time than usual tongue.gif
