If we take the UKAHFT website for instance.... once the cards are in it takes me 6-8hrs to check all the cards, collate the scores, enter them into the spreadsheet & then create & alter the relevant webpages, to do this I take a day off work on the Monday after competition so that shooters can view their scores as soon as possible......would I do this just to benefit another site who haven't contributed to the process & may actually be harming our events..... NOT A CHANCE
Has anyone actually asked to see if a collaboration can be made? Sponorship nor hits is not a vaild arguement as web parts in html5 could be used. plus more links from a heavily used web sites increases search engine results for said club or ukahft site.
the excel spreadsheet being used which was created is some what out dated as i had to rewrite my own to use. There are a lot of benefits to using something like this so you dont have to take a day off to publish the results theres cheap tech scanners etc... which can be purchased where you scan it detects and posts results in excel that aint gonna happen
i can discuss over a cuppa or beer after a shepreth shoot
