It’s Vets. I’m sure you will think of something else to debate

Re: Tweaks for online entries?

A few people have requested a copy facility when setting up the Start List, but I can not remember who they are :oops:

I’ve now added a button to allow you to copy the set up for one day to the other day(s) in the competition.

Re: Vets' Points

Simplicity could be.... 1. Put vets into divisions. 2. Let them paddle in any division either paddle up/paddle down/ paddle correct div. 3. Promote/demote as current divisions 3. winner of each division at end of season This allows divisions for ability but doesn't constrain with limited number of ...

Re: Vets' Points

My thinking is still that a multiplier on points, not time, is the way to go. Paul. Although, as has been said this adds yet another layer of complication to Simply Slalom. The constant tweeking with our rules creates masses of edge cases and this in turn makes everything horribly complex. The resu...

Re: Online Entries and the Sponsor Field - opinions please.

Sponsor does currently go through to SS and is displayed in results I have considered comp specific field and this could be achieved with contents being combined with sponsor for feeding to SS This could stop some of the issues, but my problem is the multi comp page. On that page you would get the f...

Re: Tweaks for online entries?

.. The main confusion I’ve had is Div 4s entering as officials. Next year I plan to add the option in the division drop down box of 'Non-Ranked Official'. This is mainly so that paddlers from other disciplines can enter as officials in local competitions. However, this could mean that we drop 'Div ...

Re: Online Entries and the Sponsor Field - opinions please.

... You could set up a link in the entry form to send me a request to add a second club or sponsor. Sorry, but I hate this idea. Some people already struggle with the entry form and extra buttons to send off information to Nick will just result in even more confusion. I'm trying hard to keep the en...

Re: Tweaks for online entries?

I have never tried to enter div 4 myself, but one family at the weekend reported that they had failed to work out how to enter div 4 online because the first thing they needed to select was their ranking, which they don't have. Any chance you could have a look at the route div 4's need to take thro...

Online Entries and the Sponsor Field - opinions please.

The Sponsor field was originally added to www.canoeslalomentries.co.uk at the request of a paddler. It did, at one point, disappear from the results lists, but has since been re-instated. However, since then, we now collect the sponsor from the ranking database and I have been asked to remove it as ...

Re: Results required for promotion display

Once on dB. I could add report to online entries if you prefer, on the basis they are downloading stuff from there already. That way I can highlight paddlers that have already entered maybe

Would love a like button on this site!

Thanks.
It is an idea though - I'm not sure about financial feasibility nor even who is responsible for making decisions regarding Pan Celtic!

Re: Sshhh – it’s a secret! The Pan Celtic

Wherever it is then local paddlers will have an advantage. The same is true of Tees as of Lee Valley. Those local to Tees will have the advantage; those with a 10hr round trip will probably never have been there. In practice, even those J12/J14s local-ish to Lee Valley mostly do their regular paddli...

Re: Points calculations with DNFs

... by just running Simply Slalom again which is not a massive task. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Reloading output from timing system to the current version of Simply Slalom may be doable; I’m not sure whether original data is retained though data then has to be reloaded to ranking databas...
