Sprint dates

Post by Skillz » Fri Nov 26, 2021 11:19 am

What are 6 of the most popular sports in the world? Also, what are the championship dates of said sports?

I am thinking of having 6 sprints in the year. Each one starting xx number of days before a specific championship game.

For example:
The NFL Superbowl is on 13th, Feb 2022. So I will start a Sprint on the 10th and let it end on the same day the superbowl starts.

Australia Open... maybe :D

I'd guess the Olympics if you run it every 4 years

The dates show Jan 17th through Jan 30th, 2022. So I'll do

Jan 27th, 28th, 29th and end on the 30th.

That's 4 days. Just need to set a time on the 27th to start it.

Yes I noticed some of them after I set them up. Didn't have a backup plan or know what to do to change it so I left it as is.

Highly unlikely boincgames will be used by many for the first couple years anyway. For example it took many years before FB took off.
