    Default Entry Express Breed Categories

    What is the best way to pursue changing the breed categories used by Entry Express? I have been contacting people for the last two years and not getting anywhere. I thought I was getting somewhere this summer, but not now. Any certain person or department that would be the best? I've tried through the editors at Retriever News and at least got responses, but haven't gotten many responses from the contacts listed on Entry Express. We have Curlies and under the breed summaries, we get lumped with Flat-Coats at field trials and "others" in hunt tests. We used Entry Express for our breed national field events in September....all curlies.....all listed as a bunch of fcrs in the breed tallies.
    Anyone have any advice? (other than get a lab....I have already heard that once or twice or a zillion times as you can imagine )
    Thank you,
    Sarah

    It should be an extremely easy fix, but what do I know? Not to mention all the other little things...

    You could get a Golden... Sorry, couldn't resist. I have been able to email EE when I had a problem with the site. I also remember talking to somebody at one time, but don't remember where I got the phone number.

    I asked for that one
    And yes, the software nerd responses I always get are it should be an easy fix that is why I think I just need to talk to different people or pursue it a different way....
    When we enter ft and ht, we are listed correctly there, so it has the capability to do it.....

    It can be done, it isn't rocket science...I've offered to help fix the code but have been ignored...oh well.

    Well, here's a thought. The CCCRCA can go back to doing their own catalog. Doing so will save money for our participants at the WC tests. More work for the hunt tests but might be worth the hassle to make a point. I was the first to use EE for the CCRCA and tried to get our Curlies a listing as CCRs but the people there just would not make the effort.
