    • Partha- It was more of a Hi Hello get together..Expected at least 12 to 15 members..Ehasan, Sampath Ca, Gopal666, Karthikstorm, Karthikraghavan1994,Velayudham,pypkSrikant,Novaknole attended the casual meet up. Nothing big was discussed except for some volley of questions which Gopal666 raised regarding radar study and wind pattern..Our Windman 2-Pypksrikant answered one by one…Ehasan again proved to be a nice host and the place (Kanders) was really quiet on a Sunday afternoon..Wish the place had more bloggers friends yesterday.Since the whole thing was arranged in a short notice,the meet had to settle with just 8 bloggers.Hopefully we can have a full strength next time around..

  1. Kea, my views on the points is, we should be giving points for temp as currently being given with bonus for accurately predicting the temp. With regard to rains bonus points should be applicable only if we get the rains accurately not for accurately predicting 0 mm rains.

    Also I think there has to be a bonus for a full house. 6 Points for temp & 2 points for rains in case of no rain days or 4 points for days when it rained. If it is full house we could have a bonus of either 50% or may be even double the total points.

  2. New points scoring system for week 2. The focus is to award more points for more accurate predictions.

    Difference of 0 gets 15 points
    0.1 diff – 12
    0.2 diff – 9
    0.3 diff – 7
    0.4 diff – 6
    0.5 diff – 5
    0.6 diff – 4
    0.7 diff – 3
    0.8 diff – 2
    0.9 diff – 1
    1.0 diff 0.5 points will be awarded

    Difference of 0 – 0.5 mm gets 15 points
    Difference of 0.5 – 2.0 – 12 points
    difference of less than 4 – 9 points
    6 mm – 7 points
    8 mm – 6 points
    10 mm – 5 points
    12 mm – 4 points
    14 mm – 3 points
    16 mm – 2 points
    18 mm – 1 point
    20 mm – 0.5 points

    Zero rainfall
    To discourage 0 mm entries, only 5 points will be awarded if the rainfall is zero. No points will be awarded if rainfall is 1 or 2 mm and no difference will be calculated.
    If 1 mm is predicted and actual rainfall is zero, zero points will be awarded.

  3. Surprise Surprise !!! Patgaon takes the Lead from Hulikal – All India SWM Toppers from 01.06.13 to 22.09.13

  4. Hello all – I hope the post title comes true else I should be back to cribbing on the blog from day after tomorrow morning. Looks like I will be jumping from a pleasant 31C/21C into 35C/27+C soon ūüė¶

  5. Raijin,

    If someone predicts zero and rainfall is indeed zero or trace, then only 5 points will be awarded
    If rainfall is .1 mm then the person who predicted rainfall of 20 mm or less will get points

  9. Rame1975

    A small request to you. Please do not repeat same question over and over again. People will read your question and answer them. It becomes irritating to see the same message posted over and over again.

    • Okay Kea . I will not repeat again or ask same question.
      Btw new points system is very fine.

      Some clarification about Rain fall points rules.

      1.RF of about >5 mm will only be considered
      2. Minimum values for rainfall amount considered.

  10. @ kea , Thanks for updating my points. But still you missed 1 point for rains in Meenambakkam, I predicted 0 mm rainfall , but you gave only 1 point ….

    Pls correct and update…

    Pls let me know where are the photos taken yesterday ?
    Vela said they are posted in Facebook , but not able to find.

    Pls post the link here in the blog. I do not have FB account.

  11. KEA,


    Sorry for repeating the same point again.
    By mistake i posted earlier in reply to your comment.

    Some clarification about Rain fall points rules.

    1.RF of about >5 mm will only be considered
    2. Minimum values for rainfall amount considered.

  12. Ehsan– Great point system..tempts me to join from next week..only 1 submission..it is a brilliant move to lower the pts on zero mm rains..in the same vein,as all of us here wish rains and so we need to incentivise bloggers who predict more rains and get it right..for example if the average rain in sept is 20mm/rainday,any prediction above 20mm should get bonus pts if they get it right.

  13. Reg yday bloggers meet,the disappointment was there were only 8..but I feel that content and texture of the meet was a relaxed and an informal one and I think this should be the tone for future meets..yes there can be ppts from Jupi and Others like Susa,but lets keep this soothing ambience

    • yes my guess proved correct.

      I tried this :

      I saw the names of the persons while moving the cursor over them

      Now Gopal confirmed that he is the person in extreme left.

      Thanks Novak . No other photos ???
