Club members: Future of the track record

Saturday, October 14, 2006 2:00 AM
I'd say blow it away and start again. If nothing else, there are quite a few coasters on my record that are not in the database here, so I've been keeping my own copy anyway.

I develop Retro Games for macOS, iPhone, and iPad when not riding coasters.

coasterqueenTRN's avatar I don't have a problem with it. I already printed out my track record just in case. :) There would be no way I could remember ALL of them. ;)

I like the track record, but have no problem re-entering. Sounds like it'll be worth the effort. *** Edited 10/14/2006 7:44:57 PM UTC by Chaindog***

Blow it away and let everyone start fresh.

I know what a pain it is to write data conversion code that gets used once, and then thrown away. :)

If there was a way to make your tracklist, and the rank the coasters you've ridden, and then Cbuzz could cull some statistics from that data, I would join. I love this sort of thing and I'd be miserable if I couldn't participate. Weighing the rankings similar to what Mitch does would be amazing. Watching those rankings change as people add to their count and new members join would be fantastic.

Tell me now if I'm getting my hopes up. *** Edited 10/14/2006 6:15:53 PM UTC by matt.***

I'm with everyone else, I'll gladly redo my list.

bobthecoasterguy's avatar I'm for redoing the list, especially if it's easier to use and the database gets and overhaul. :)

Thanks for asking, not sure you need our permission. In what ways will it be different? Can you give us a heads up before you do it?

My track record on this site is so out of date anyway, it's not funny. Wouldn't bother me at all.

Rick_UK's avatar Yeah - no worries for me. Go for it.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

As long as you give us a few days heads up notice about it, I'm all for it. Besides, it's not like I have over 100 coasters to remember ;)

Haha no I'm not giving Patrick the finger

I've not uipdated it in a few years...I guess that tells you how sad I would be if you "made it better." :)

Here's an idea...Why stop at coasters? Include flats and waterslides too!

How about a "snacker tracker?" THis way we could rank individual menu items on food too. (Which is really better, the potato patch fries at Kennywood or the Potato Wedge Triangles at Knoebels?)

OK...I'll shut up now.

OK by me.

CPLady's avatar Another who says go for it. I have a separate track record on my website and includes a defunct coaster that's not listed here anyway. Sadly, it's the first one I rode.

I'd rather die living than live like I'm dead

As for Track records, Well. Id be more likely to rejoin for the feature if it was more complete.
You'll be happy to know I'm actually working on a little side project that will allow everyone to be more involved in getting the coaster database more accurate and complete.

The general apathy toward the feature though kind of verifies what I already knew, that it wasn't much of a feature for most people.

Among the other things that I struggle with from a data perspective is the ride that has moved. I mean, I don't want to get into setting policy for whether or not you can count a ride that started at one park then you got to ride it at another park. But at the same time, I'd like to restructure the database so there's still just one ride referenced to more than one park.

Like a few other people have said, as long as you give a heads up, I'm good. I have most of it written down, but it's still cool to have the online feature.

Maybe you could have some alias(es) set up for each installation of a relocated ride.
