So... I see them posted regularly... but how do you translate all that's chock-filled in there? I looked on the lines page... but no FAQ.
Any help would be appreciated!

Really obsessive types like myself print them out and keep them somewhere. There are keys at the bottom. It's all easier on paper than the screen (or at least for me it is).

Did somebody just put a (newer :-) ) subliminal message in the rotating Wienerville sign?? I just printed one of those out, & was wondering how to decrypt some of the information in there. The sequence after the match rating (eg. "Mx-1c-1k-2a-2b-2b-2a-E-1b-1k-2b") baffles me, & don't see anything that decodes it for me.

(I do get an Acrobat Reader error when I open the file. Am I missing something?)

>Mx-1c-1k-2a-2b-2b-2a-E-1b-1k-2b

This can be confusing if you haven't read it before, yep.

It's basically a transcription of the momentuem shifts in the match - who had control when, and who got it next.

Mx = mixed, so the match started out with no one side in control - some people

1c = The first side got control - and the guy who's last name starts with c (John Cena!) was the one doing to the moves...
1k = and handed it off to kidman
2a = Angle turned the tide
2b = Benoit got in
2b = and stayed in for a while (not quite sure exactly about what determines a repetition - when I used to do this, a repetition indicated a hope spot [ex: kidman avoids a corner charge but ends up getting clotheslined anyway] but I'm don't remember Robert's criteria)
2a = Angle back in
E = Even - no side has control. This differs from Mx (people from different teams are in control at the same time, as opposed to no one being in control)
1b = I think that's supposed to be 2B and Benoit back in control but not sure
1k = Kidman hits that SSP
2b = but Benoit ends up hitting the submission for the win

The ides is that you can not only get a feel for how a match flowed, but how it felt - was it a one sided squash (lots of momentuem for one, none for the other)? More back and forth? One person stuck in the ring a long time?

I'm not getting an error with the newest line - perhaps it's a version thing? I've got 5.0.

Got it. Excellent -- thank you !

So the asterisks do refer to the interferences listed below under "Breakdowns" -- cool.

OK then, in the Brock et al match:
??-Mx-??-Mx-1b-1t-1t-1t-2e-2x-2e

-- the x-in-a-circle symbol means what?
-- MX = mixed
-- the x-in-a-circle again
-- MX = mixed
-- 1b = Brock in control
-- 1t = Tajiri (also of the first side) takes control
-- 1t = Tajiri does something else particularly interesting
-- 1t = Tajiri again
-- 2e = Edge gets in
-- 2x = is this a typo, or is this when Edge & Rey are both in doing stuff ??
-- 2e = Edge gets the win

Something like that?

BTW, I downloaded a newer Acrobat Reader, & am fine now -- no errors.

You know, that there is no key is a product of time. When I started posting these regualrly this year, there was a key, but with time, I omitted it for space, hoping everyone would know what everything meant by now. I shall post a key with the next set of lines, but the current posts have it close enough for the time being.

Cool - I was stalling 'cause I wasn't sure and hoped you'd make the save.

You may want to have the key show up at the start of each PPV month cycle, so there's a recent point of refernce.

Having a key available would be a wonderful thing. New people wander in, old people get interested in different things.

Perhaps the key could live permanently in the Stats directory off the main page (where the pdf's seem to live), & then just hyperlink to that periodically?

Thanks for the help!

I have just submitted a key for posting and hopefully permanent residence (reference credit: emma). I hope this explains everything better.

Perfect -- exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!
