My own understanding is that while it has specific features for certain Tournaments, it was designed to be more useful for anyone trying to do officials' staffing.

Example: for those of us who do both SO and NSO, it is easier to see at a glance the mix of our recent games, or to go diving for specifics.
You will bout as you practice.


Cheers,

My resume is here:  http://tinyurl.com/axisofstevil

You'll notice I made a tweaked the summary page at the bottom by adding two small areas.  One is for the photo credit and my short URL to the document.  The second shows my total # of WFTDA and MRDA games combined.
6.1.3.5.1.2.3 - The referee who quotes a rule with the most digits is declared the winner.

How would your treat a "public scrimmage" that was played like a normal game between two teams under the WFTDA-Ruleset ... 2x30min, full Ref- and NSO-Crew, Scoreboard, public, etc. ?
Would you put it to the "Other History" or to the "WFTDA-History"

Scrimmages of whatever type typically do not go on the resume.  The line between "scrimmage" and "game" is not well defined, but public scrimmages aren't generally considered games.

I've occasionally seen people who add an entirely new tab on scrimmages to keep track of them.  You could do such a thing, but at the risk of speaking for Cert it's doubtful that they would pay any attention to it.  Scrimmages vary too much in procedure and adherence to the rules for Cert to know if it's a "by the books" kinda scrimmage vs. the lax sort of scrimmage where skaters do 10 pushups in the penalty box then return to the track.

If it's really something you want to track, put it on the "other" tab.  As the instructions page indicates ,"This information is not considered as part of any WFTDA/MRDA evaluation of your experience but is included so that you may utilize a single game history for your officiating career."

Stevil,  I'm not trying to get on you or anything but I've always been told not to make modifications to the Game History Resume'. I'm pretty sure I even remember reading that if you did modify your game history in anyway and you wanted to apply to Division 1, Division 2 Playoffs or Champs, you would have to change it back into the original formatting before they accepted your application.

If it's really something you want to track, put it on the "other" tab.  As the instructions page indicates ,"This information is not considered as part of any WFTDA/MRDA evaluation of your experience but is included so that you may utilize a single game history for your officiating career."

My undestanding is that the "Other" tab is now reserved for other *rulesets*.  Games played under WFTDA rules in the new version of the history go in the main history tab (if you chose to list them at all) with a game type of "Other." 

I have a few scrimmages on my game history that were run as "all-but-regulation", i.e. with medics, rope, a scoreboard, etc.  I don't worry that anyone will look askance at them, because I'm pretty sure tournament staffing folks, Cert, etc. are only looking at the totals for "Sanctioned" and "Regulation" play, and so don't really care about anything marked "Other".

 This does of course raise the question of why put them on if no one is looking, and I think the answer is that I'm a completist, and I like to have a full history of my significant derby experience. If I'm working a scrimmage with a full complement of officials and equipment, then that, to my mind, is significant enough to warrant a record.
I'm better at remembering "Smasher" is me than "Adam."

The plural of "anecdote" is not "data," but have an additional tab on my history marked "Other Calculations", and my game history was accepted when I applied to playoffs as an NSO this year.  Things may be different on the ref side.  Or, I may be getting a phone call after this post goes up rescinding my playoff staffing until I change my game history. :)
