Tube Challenge homepage

Post by tpfkar » 18 Sep 2006, 12:56

I see that the home page at http://www.tubechallenge.com still has the headline that this year's Zone 1 Challenge is being organised.

This is now several months out of date. Come on o great guru, it'll only take a minute to change it....

Indeed I will change it - I'm removing all of the site content except for the forum, as everything is more or less on here anyway except a comprehensive list of 275 times.

I'll be putting a list of them up shortly, as I have recently come into possession of more than are currently on the website.

In fact all you need to do is change one number the end '6' to a '7' as it won't be long now :wink:

I think your expose over Tube Challening history is very well written and quite interesting. With a minor revision I'd certainly like to have it around in the future too!

Keeping up the history of the challenge might be nice.... it was a good way for me to get introduced to the challenge and read through the different ups and downs it went through as lines reopened, closed, so on.

Yes on a serious note (for once) the history of the challenge should be kept I feel.....

That means I either update it or make a note that it will not be update further.

Surely you'd only needed to make a brief notation that a new record has been set? Really it's your site so whatever is easiest for you. If updates are too much simply state that it won't be updated anytime soon

Come on guru, we've had the argument about the main content of the site before, but just a minute of your time to change the front page please!

Yes it's clearly unfair as Dr Who is the only one on this forum who stands a chance of doing this.

p.s. Dr, if you do go back and enter yourself in the event for the second time can you try and do something about the man under on the Viccie Line, that way we can all improve our times a bit.... thanks :D

It's still there.....

I don't want to seem like a nagging auntie.

But I'll have to get the rolling pin out soon.

Come on tubeguru, you know you want to update it...
