Important change in Neighbourhood Group scoring

In working with Max Serpa in developing the EcoGames website, Max convinced us that the fairest way to calculate the Neighbourhood Group (NG) scores is to divide the total points won by the team by the number of EcoGames players on the team. Previously we divided the total by the total population of the entire NG, whether they were EcoGames participants or not. This has resulted in some changes in the Neighbourhood Group leaderboard.
