Leaderboard Update 2/16/2017
Today we encountered a problem with the Dressage leaderboard where it had hit a google docs size limit and become unable to read show results. In order to fix this problem all 2016 shows had to be totalled into one. While this solution has kept every horse’s points and current level intact, it does unfortunately mean that the entries and placings counters have been reset, so all horses are squarely back at their current level, instead of being half-way to the next level etc.
Since this problem is related to the size of the leaderboards we will be totalling 2016 shows for Eventing and Show Jumping as well to avoid any potential downtime (we would hate for this problem to happen during a show!) This will occur over the next 7-10 days, taking care not to conflict with any open events.
So far we only have plans to take this action on Eventing and Show Jumping. No other disciplines are currently large enough to be at risk of hitting this size limit.
Thanks for understanding as we sort this out.
Regarding recent issues:
Some horses have been advanced beyond their breed cap because of this process, which is due to the feature we had during the transfer which allowed horses who were competing during 2.0 at a level above their 2.5 breed cap to keep that higher level.
Due to the additional complications caused by this feature, as well as the overdue normalisation of this, we are removing this feature. The result of this is that all horses will be restricted to their breed cap, which is what we are all used to.
This change will happen at the end of the month, during the lull between shows. Until then you may compete your horse at its current level.
Some horses have also lost a level on the dressage leaderboard. If anyone has horses to which this has happened, please reply to this post with the following information:

Thanks for your patience & understanding.
