I was speaking in terms of how the executives view programmed air time. They want to see more Mitch Laurence mentioning a paid advertiser of some sort instead of explanations of what does fargo mean, or what is a push out.

In terms of marketing, you would have to agree, IBR is catchy?
Or IPR....whatever it is, it belongs up there with RBIs and QBR
IBR - explain that to me - ok it's international billiard rating - ok I understand what that is

FargoRate - explain that to me - ok it's a billiard rating system - ok I understand what that is

Reply to answer #1 "ok got it"
Reply to answer #2 "why is it called fargo?"

Hence the point of icon's point in this thread.

I don't know many kids who ask "why Hershey" before tearing open the wrapper.

Let me get this straight. You're saying a name is no good if people have to ask why it's named that? its subjective already whether someone is curious to name origins or not.

I don't remember, I just picked one on the many on the page. It had Fargo at the bottom of the screen and a number for each player. After a game, the winners rating went up by a couple of points and the looser went down by a couple. If I remember right the ratings were close and around 160. I'll try to find one later.

Ok - here is an example of what I was talking about. At the bottom center is Fargo Rate and numbers (in this case in the 700's) for each player.

The FargoRate numbers do not change. What is changing is the calculated percentage chance of each player winning the match given the current score.

The FargoRates could be roughly recalculated after each game but they would usually move less than a point for a well-established player and to do a full calculation would not be possible.

Agreed. I just went back and checked a few matches and the percentages are changing - the fargo rates remain constant. My bad. Thanks Bob.

Thanks to all for the replies, even though we got off subj a little.
Mike, thanks for your all of your replies. If you get a chance, can you tell us how to determine how many games we have in the system.

Thanks again Sedog
