    Practiscore -> IDPA.COM?

    "Some reason" and "not working" does not provide enough detail to troubleshoot anything. What is not working, what error are you getting. You need to provide enough details, because no one is looking over your shoulder.

    AZ Shooters website????

    Nothing is odd it. It was added by mistake, but the reason it is not there is USPSA wanting to keep HHF numbers to themselves and not sharing it with anyone. However you can see it in PractiScore Competitor app.

    Jaggernaut, by all means email items that need to be changed/improved in PractiScore to better support your events at support@practiscore.com More details is better and even better if you could make separate itemized lists for both ios and android.

    Practiscore contact needed

    I did see 2 emails, but I don't work on the web site. No point for me to reply. If web guys haven't answered - try to email again. I am more or less in the same boat as you guys.

    Not sure what "true Bianchi scoring system" is, but PractiScore had NRA Action in the iOS app for a few years and Android has it for about a year now.

  12. Well, they also don't want to patch and reset steel... Yet here we are. It is more of expectations and a mentality thing. Besides, no one is irreplaceable. Not JC. Not me. Others will come and sport will live.
  13. I wonder where $900 to $1400 number came from. With Amazon Fire - it is more like $300..500 for 10 tablets and you don't have those to have PractiScore app installed. Have Matchbook or Competitor app instead. But then again, I am not trying to convince you or anyone. Just saying that the same arguments work the other way.
  14. That highlighted part could be a problem. Just saying... Or maybe over time someone will teach them how to use new gear... It isn't that hard, if my 65/yo mom could do it, they can do it too. It's not like it is a new problem... We've been dealing with all kind of disabilities in computer software for couple decades now. It only takes someone to try it and do it right. Actually I might have investigated that issue upon request... But then it doesn't have to be scoring tablet. Amazon Fire tablets are really cheap. You can get 2nd set of them for the major match for the cost of 2..3 registration fees and have them at the stages running the matchbook app for competitors to look at.
  15. I wonder if you've tried it or just speculating? Most if not all of your reasons can be used to favor electronic briefing. Just for the giggles... Those tablets already protected to be used during scoring process. That's what those protective cases or even zip locks are for... Unless you are still using Nooks, then it sucks. Besides, when someone need to look at WSB - tablet can sit on the RO table under RO tent or shed. And briefing stapled to the wall on the stage won't be lost next day after a storm or heavy rain/wind. Also, when stages are posted online - competitors can browse them on their own devices. In matchbook app or directly on the match registration site when PractiScore registration site is used; or in PractiScore Competitor app when they are posted with the match results (or synced from a match wifi). Then if you like paper copy - you can print it yourself. Many major matches are rolling like that anyways - Florida Open, USPSA Nationals for at least few years now... Admittedly FLOP been posting paper briefing at the stages and still avoiding posting electronic ones with the match results. While tablet is on RO table during walk trough it can be plugged in to external battery. But then it doesn't need to have its screen turned on - only when people actually need to look at it. For the same reason, RO doesn't need to keep tablet screen on at the "load and make ready" command (unless they are doing hot scoring). It''s sufficient to turn it on when shooter is about to finish stage and he'll need to enter time. On a contrary. It makes it easier to update all tablets. Just change it on a master device and sync. Don't need to find and scribble on all laminated copies... See my note below on making match secure if you are concerned about match changes. Currently it is about 2x of a regular book font size. So far no one complained about font sizes, but I can easily crank it up 2x more... Here is a 7" tablet similar to ones they are using in Florida. If major is not posting results online or not enabling use of the matchbook app, perhaps they do deserve using paper. But then again, you should enable match security to make sure only stats or RM can make changes in match, stage or competitor's data.
