Re: Veterans - Alternate points

This would require no work except from me and the bib officer… SS could do this automatically. I beg to differ, for SS to do this automatically I suspect Dave would need to do some work and for him to be able to do his bit I would probably need to do some stuff too. … just saying :D :lol: :lol:

Re: What is the Spectators Race in Online Entries and What do I do?

I thought it would be obvious that spectators was for those not paddling and would allow organisers to get and idea of overall numbers and lists of attendees. Clearly I got that wrong! Some people have clearly understood but as soon as one person books in twice every one else follows suit. I tried a...

Re: Yahoo, aol and Verizon email addresses

Thanks for the suggestion. However, aws is only free if you are paying them for hosting, and we are not! Also, we’ve been happy with the service provided by postmarkapp. This glitch was not of their making and significant glitches are rare. Finally we bulk paid for emails years ago and got a really ...

Yahoo, aol and Verizon email addresses

If you are on a yahoo hosted email address (includes aol and Verizon), you may experience issues in receiving emails from canoeslalomentries and therefore be unable to log on. According to the service we use for these automated emails (a company called postmark), Yahoo have confirmed that caused by ...

Re: Llandysul Div 2 12 and 13 June - Has it been cancelled?

The decision was taken a while back that no div 2s or above could be run before the 21 June (at the earliest). This is based on div 3/4s being more localised events whereas paddlers travel considerably further for div 2s. Hence Llandysul has lost the div 2 but will be running the div 3. So the disap...

Re: What is the Spectators Race in Online Entries and What do I do?

OK my first attempt was obviously as clear as mud, so I've updated the system and the first post.

Red button on entry page mean attending parents and hangers on should register as spectators.

No red button then nothing to do

Re: What is the Spectators Race in Online Entries and What do I do?

Just for clarity here, not all competitions are using “Spectators” to collect data. So, if you can’t see a spectators race then you don’t need to do anything.

What is the Spectators Race in Online Entries and What do I do?

If you are entering a competition via Online Entries, you may have come across a “Spectators” race which is clearly a tad confusing as it is not really a race at all! Paddlers entering other races do not need to enter the Spectators race, but if you are attending and not racing eg parent, coach, gen...

The organiser needs to have fully completed and submitted their yearbook data (a few still outstanding!)

Re: OnLineEntries ... Going Down

I think I have managed to speed things up quite a bit. I'm not sure that any of the slowing down was due to MySQL upgrade, so much as a combination of loosing some local caching due to a package change and the fact that I've not really tried to help performance at all over last couple of years and t...

Re: OnLineEntries ... Going Down

Having checked this out ... query cache is deprecated in 5.7 and removed altogether in v8. Also reading various docs, from what I can understand (which is limited!), I'm not sure that it would help - implication is that it wars with InnoDb. Also our tables are small - the entries table (which is the...

Re: CanoeSlalomEntries Support for Covid Slaloms

PS I am able to update sessions, but may have disabled them for organisers as it does require a bit of fiddling and best discussed before actioning.
