I'm running a bitcoin bracket with my friends.

I suggest everyone do the same.  I'm using the following scoring system:

RND 1 RND 2 RND 3 RND 4 RND 5 RND 6
1       2       4        8       16      32

Any suggestions for better scoring systems?

Any suggestions for online websites that allow you to setup a league of brackets and it auto grades them for you? (as well as has a way to input selections)

Heya!

You could also score one point per game no matter the round, or one point per "seed" (as in, if you pick a #9 seed to win a game you get 9 points, if you pick a #1 seed you only get 1). You could also do seed*round points I suppose!

The two main places online are yahoo and cbs sportsline for bracket managers.. although, I'm working on one myself specifically for bitcoin that I hope to have ready before Sunday!

And, I'm done!

Check it out:

http://www.bitmadness.com/

It's a free, ad-free way to run a march madness pool, with or without bitcoins!

No limits on number of users, pools, nada!

It uses the new mtgox payment API also for all the bitcoin stuff!

Give it a try and give me some feedback! As soon as the teams are announced later today, I'll update the site with the full bracket!

I'm going to use your site.  Thanks!

I selected the cash option since I only have 4 people playing, haha.  How do I mark people as paid?

Whoops, sorry about that.. there was a bug where you could only mark them as paid after the tournament begins! Now you can mark them paid just by clicking on their entry name, there'll be a button on the right that says "mark as paid"!
