Transferapps database

Postby upgrade » Sat May 22, 2010 2:36 pm

I don't have much time to update this for this year's cycle because I am still studying for finals, but I think the standardized data entry and presentation is much better here than what is available at the yahoogroup. The entries are also editable.

Filter data at the top and enter data at the bottom. I modified the structure a bit so that it can be used for the 2010 cycle as well. My goal was to have something like this replace the transferapps database. DabbleDB is good, but I couldn't figure out how to get things setup the way I wanted to, so I just left it like it is. They may have added new features in the last year that would make it easier to work with if someone is interested in picking this up.

I also created a separate database for notification methods and timing here:

(Filter this page for 2010 cycle by just putting 2010 in the Decision Date field at top)

Wait, can you explain this? Is this your own website and did you create it last year or something? Already looks a billion times more user friendly than transferapps.

DabbleDB is just a database platform for online databases. I put together the database structure and the forms for entering and viewing the data last year.

You can filter the data at the top of each page and you can enter new records at the bottom of the page. If you have specific questions, let me know.

You might have already answered this, but are you going to add any of the old yahoo cycles on here?

Edit: I'll be the first to say that I'd donate like $10 to such an endeavor. If like 30 transfer hopefuls did that, well........it probs still wouldn't be worth it lol.

I'm not going to enter the old data, but feel free to do so if you are so inclined. I entered a lot of the 2009 data manually for testing purposes.
