Really cool transferapps Database (user friendly, not Yahoo)

Hey,

I swear this isn't mine, I'm not trying to promote my own stuff. It's really cool, you can just input your info, and then the website owner views your application to make sure its not bogus and then adds it to the list. Check it out:

notification dates and methods can be found here.

I think it would be cool if this took off, as the Yahoo transfer apps excel database is great, but is not dynamic at all.

That being said, searching the results could be more intuitive. Maybe if the database takes off the site owner will install new features. Anyway check it, see what you think.

It is cool, but it's not cool that we can edit the preexisting entries.

Dammit your right.

It seemed a bit too good to be true lol.

Well I guess that makes this a SHITE thread.

You can—just mouse over the entry and there an edit button that comes up.


Fair enough. But I spy an interpretation error on your part :lol:

I lost you all in the glass house / touché / interpretation error exchange.

The thing is editable, right?
It would be really cool if the dude would lock it down so that people could submit and view but not edit.

Then we won't dwell on it lol.

Yeah I know... I wish the website had a "contact" function... The guy making this thing and not completing it is the rough equivalent of saying f**k it on third down when you have one yard to go....

+1, and it doesn't look like there's a contact person to point this out to. It's like this site just appeared out of nowhere

I'm not tracking it down, but someone on this forum put it together last summer's cycle. There is a post linking to it from back then and earlier this year somewhere.

I put this up last year and modified it slightly for this year's cycle.

Yes, the data is editable (the main issue with the Yahoo group) by anyone. The platform makes backups frequently such that if someone does go on a malicious rampage, the information can be reinstated. If someone wants to take over the maintenance let me know.

As far as not finishing it, the capabilities of and/or my expertise with the dabbleDB system limited making the system as robust as I would have liked. It has been a year and I know the team was actively adding features last year, so perhaps it is possible that the interface could be cleaned up a bit. In either case, the site fulfilled what I wanted it to at the time, albeit in a less than ideal format.
