Database Updates & Database Liason Officers Wanted!
A quick update on database - after a slightly longer than planned delay due to circumstances waaaay beyond anyone's control, Lou is now working his way through the queue of stuff waiting to be added to the database. I've also received the PM's from everyone else who wants to help and am/will be in touch with you all too. Thanks to everyone who's offered to help!
Those of you who offered to help might also be interested in this; We’re still hard at work on the next-gen version of the database, but it’s now nearing completion, so we wanted to move to the next phase….
Because nobody will know better what’s going to work than you guys, we thought the best way to introduce you all to it and get it fine-tuned would be if two or three senior community members took the role of Database Liaisons. They’ll get to see over the beta version of the system, give us initial feedback, then tell the community at large about it. They can then take questions, pass these to us and solicit feedback on any points they/you think might cause issue or could be improved.
We think the best way to find them would be if you all want to nominate others for the role here in this thread. We’ll ask those with the most nominations if they’d like to take on the role (they can of course say no if they don’t want to!) and pick our people that way.
We hope you like the idea and as, ever, any questions, just let us know.
