I have been attempting to set up a formula with the following criteria.
The top 16 positions receive points regardless as the number of players. 1st place gets 16 points, 16th place gets 1 point, 17th through 48th place receive 0 points. I have not been able to work out the formula.
Thanks for your help in advance.

You're going to have to set up this in prize form under the "prizes" tab. There's no way to program a formula the way you want to (as of yet).

Try the following:
max(17(r), 0)
This should provide the higher of the two variables, either 17 minus rank, or 0.
For 1st place, 171= 16 points
for 2nd place, 172= 15 points
for 3rd place, 173= 14 points
...
...
for 16th place, 1716= 1 point
for 17th place, 1717= 0 points
for 18th place, 1718= 1, in which the equation will award 0 points instead because 0 is greater than 1.
...
...
for 48th place, 1748= 31, in which the equation will award 0 points instead because 0 is greater than 31.
This should work for what you need.

Ooo, does that actually work? Sweet.
