KW changes to regional entries...
« on: February 22, 2016, 12:31:10 pm »
So I noticed something while uploading a test photo that had me make a few inquiries, as well as look at the new KW rules.
Of particular interest is the end of rule #4
"Team members do NOT have to all be from the same state to be on the same team. However regional points will only be accepted in the region registered in."
Since we don't just enter our fish caught as in Freshwater North America, we actually enter them for the region they were caught in. EG.fish caught in Tennessee would be entered in the US region they were caught in and only count individually, but not towards your Canadian teams totals, or possible Canadian records.

I noticed that also. However i believe the us teams will be the only teams available to do that. We are individual Canadian international and couldnt have a usa region member. Hence the Cross Canada flavour this year instead of one province area. Best example was The Norseman last year.

I've entered both one Canada and one for a US region that shows on my catches just not for our team totals.

Can someone registered in Canada now log USA saltwater fish and it would
only count for individual points and not team points ?

Also if registered on a Canadian team and you log a North American freshwater
fish from the USA it now only counts for individual points and not team ?

Guess I should be asking them directly, but doesn't affect me anyhow.

I currently have points in both US southeast as well as Canada, but only the Canadian fish gives me points towards my team. And only Canadian fish counts towards International angler points. But both count towards top angler points.
If you look for me on both US angler standings and Canadian angler standings and then team international you will see what I am saying.

So far they have no individual worldwide stats so this as far as I can see would only count towards winning individual in another region, records and career totals.

Honestly I think this is just going to make a big mess for them, going to be too many people click on wrong region and have to fix entries etc. People are going to realize they don't count as team points and just enter them as their own region anyways too. They should have just left it simple imo.

Also how is this going to work if a team member enters say a northern pike under a us region. Does it come out of team upload limit for month?

Too many hassles imo.

We be interesting to see how this works out.
I did a test saltwater and a test freshwater entry from a US region, and
system has me on the US individual standings, but no points for Team.

Agree with Ravyak.

Individual USA has a overall individual category where both my US entry and Canadian entry count for my total.

Which is how it should be.

You should have 25 and show up in top angler section but you don't. Brent shows up as his total of US points there, CAN points are not included.

I sent them an email on the issues I had and potential issues I see. Will see what they end up doing and how it works. I just see it being a mess, people can't even upload right species etc lots of the time, the fewer choices the fewer things to go wrong.

Brent or others that have tried, does the region default to where you are or the one you last used? Yet another big reason this is going to screw up horribly because no matter which way it is set up someone won't notice or remember to change it when uploading 50 fish in a batch etc.

What I've been told is Canadian waters/bordering waters only count towards your team and international totals. More or less...no USA fish to be entered to win Canadian region...finally

The region default is the one you are registered in.

I think this is what they want, they know what they are doing.
A Canadian now can get a South-Central record red drum if visiting there.
The points will be for individual and for that region only.

It's good for most of us, but would not like it if I lived on
Border water ( ie Windsor ) and had to have my individual points split
depending on where it was caught.

Brent i believe it is to make a Canadian fish a Canadian caught fish and not about the angler. This way a USA caught fish becomes a record caught Canadian fish. If that same guy (Canadian) say catches a record SW region fish it will become the record there and not Canada.
