I seem to be getting a "Something went wrong" message when I click on the download (.csv) button for both 1 month and 6 month August Leaderboard.

Richard, could you try again? The download button should work now.

@alisa : the August 1M and 6M leaderboard (LB) results are different, but I presume they started on the same day (yesterday). Are they being ranked or graded differently? Just wondering what the difference is.

Also, is there a way to distinguish the 1M and 6M csv files by inspection, or is that a distinction we need to manage?


@Alisa : Download works for me now thanks.

As Paul mentioned, as an example of a difference one of my algos is ranked differently in the 1M vs 6M contest.

The same algo with Beta reported as beta= 0.2929 has a beta badge in the 6M but not the 1M.

Your rank is relative to the other entries that are in the pool - as the number of entries changes, you rank will change as well.

The August 1-month contest is closed for submissions, and the deadline was August 3rd at 9:30AM. All entries submitted by this time are in the contest.

The August 6-month contest is currently open for submissions, and the upcoming deadline is August 17 at 9:30AM. So the differences in ranks you're seeing are the result of the new algos being entered. All entries after Aug. 3 are rolled over into the 6 month contest.

The beta calculation is done as follows:

  • August 1-month: 7/1/2013 - 6/30/2015
  • August 6-month: 8/1/2013 - 7/31/2015
