Gene, why did you liquidate your position? Was there some news?

GeneH   •   Mon Oct 12 2015 at 09:11am PDT

No. No news. I liquidated all my long term holdings (winners and losers) on the news that we got through e-mail that this site is going to close (suspend) in December.
Not sure how they will handle that for current users. I suppose the “fair” thing to do would be to refund all those long term questions that will now never see a resolution.

I’m sort of hoping they can be convinced to keep this site open through the primaries

GeneH   •   Mon Oct 12 2015 at 11:04am PDT

Same here, but I get the feeling they have set this a firm date so they can move on to the new format.

I see where you signed up for the new Sports site (I am guessing you got it from listening to the latest podcast too).

The format is same one (for the most part) that the new incantation of Good Judgement Project is using (which by the way, I do not like for a variety of reasons). It is way harder for me to follow and there is no clear cut scoring mechanism.

One positive is that is seems like it invites MUCH MORE commentary from participants (I found this very rare in the GJP competition).

Because I like the competition so much I am sure I will join the new one when it opens.

I gave them some feedback after I first signed up with basically the same complaints as you. They said they’ll be adding a dashboard (i.e. scoring) etc. relatively soon.

Here is a very detailed article out this past week and there appear to be no major issues at this point. Absent a catastropic event, it seems communications is not a problem.

Thanks for sharing. This is the most informative piece on the Rover that I’ve read in awhile. Appreciate it.

Graphs will begin to show data one hour after the question has been open. The Historical Trend chart does not display all prices ever reached since it is only updated at discrete time intervals, (hourly/daily/weekly, depending on the date range).
