Event information (dates/results) can only be trusted if it comes from the club.Craig Bauer said:I would think that EE.net could do something. The technology is there already. It would need the results from all the other trials they don't support. But it could be done.
I don't think you should have to pay for it. I think it should be free.Hawkeye Labs said:Obviously the technology is there that isn't the problem. The problem has been previously alluded to, who's gonna pay to get the info? There aren't many people in this world willing to donate the time necessary to compile and update such a database for free. Therefore, you've got to feed a market and there isn't enough of one to support this right now.
The way I see it working is as a draw for a site like this or if the people would ever get their act together and offer an online version of the magazine. Here it would draw many more eyes to the site and sell advertising which would pay for the extra work.
How much is anyone on this thread willing to pay for this information and how many people will ante up? That's the guestion here. If we get enough hell I might be willing to make it work.
Additional traffic to sell advertising doesn't cost you anything. The more people coming to view the free info, the more the paying advertisers benefit. It's a win/win.Hawkeye Labs said:Come on now Shayne you know nothing in life is free. Either a site is going to use the additional traffic to sell advertising or charge for the information or both.
