Coming changes were mentioned in
. Below is a status on changes and
some helpful information. Target completion dates are in parenthesis
Fix site speed (March 31):
several pages, including the most popular, have been reprogramm
ed and post in half the time. The page look is temporary and includes most of the popular links. More pages will be reprogrammed over the next few weeks.
Site redesign (March 31): the site slowed down when people started to use the new site introduced in February. The platform I picked is apparently not appropriate for a database intensive site like this. I am in the process of coming up with a new appearance which includes all the facets you like. Additionally, the new platform will retain site speed plus enable planned expansion and features.
Database redesign (complete): there are several databases dedicated to this site. Two of these would have reached the maximum size limit within the coming months. Two new databases were created and all the others were reworked to ensure capacities would not be exceeded. The changes were done without disruption!
Watch for glitches: this is a complex site with several hundred links. Changes mentioned above are significant and making sure several dozen pages all work properly will take time. Some links will be accidentally disabled and some things may not work properly. My apologies in advance for the mistakes and distractions. Please report any problems by filling out this form.
Your emails, correction requests, pasted / uploaded meet results...(2017): I have several thousand emails, 234 additional correction requests, a few hundred pasted meet results and over a thousand more meet results to convert - these grow every day. I am not complaining, just giving you an idea how much needs to get done so you can understand when it takes me a long time to reply. Sorry for the delayed action and response. Please do not let this stop you from sending more - your emails and correction requests are extremely helpful and most save me time (I don't have to spend as much time finding errors and sometimes these errors were caused by my programs so fixing programs prevents future error occurrence).
The processes and programs are mostly in place so I expect that the vast majority of emails, correction requests, meet result processing, etc. will be done quickly by this time next year.
Many of the emails and correction requests are easily fixed using programs (which I need to write). I hope to get through many over the next several weeks.
