Competitions Time announcement - list view & expiry
I hope you've all been keeping well and are staying safe during lockdown.
First of all, a big sorry. It's taken us too long to return some of the core features you relied on in the Comping community and we're still not quite there. The Forum team have rightly been giving us a hard time on your behalf.
To be completely transparent, a number of things have slowed us down. Like so many other organisations, we're having to work very differently at (the now virtual) MSE Towers during the pandemic, which hasn't helped the situation. This has also been true of our development partners, who are based in Canada.
But we're also still getting used to our new home and working with our external developers after the massive job of migrating 17 years of accounts and content.
I know it's been a hard slog for you without the ability to enter and skip comps from the list view, and with no way to properly filter comps that have, or are about to, expire.
We've been working on this functionality for a few months now and, in all honesty, our attempts have come up short a couple of times. Competitions Time data stretches to hundreds of millions of rows of 'Skip and Enter' data, and we've had to make sure the logic around merging, removing and archiving threads is robust enough not to cause you further problems.
Thank you for sticking with us. I ask that you stick with us just a little bit longer. Below are some screenshots of the work that we will bring to you – we’re aiming for mid-July at the latest – to show you how tantalisingly close to completion we are.
