    I have the same questions. It's almost 6:45 pm CST. Surely there have been at least a few rounds of eliminations run by now.

    Not sure why everyone would complain. After all, in the emails we get about the LIVE coverage, we should all know the results.

    Guess I'll get banned for insulting their coverage. But if the shoe fits........

    Re: Elimination?? - Results??

    Seriously, guys... Give us a break. All of us have other jobs here at the track that absolutely can't be put off. We can't say, "I won't go out and shoot round 2 because I need to get round 1 coverage on the internet right away" or "sorry we didn't shoot your car feature before it got too dark - the guys on the message board can't wait."

    Until we can afford to bring another person along who's only job is updating the results, you're stuck with me. And as long as my primary job is producing Race Pages, getting the results up is always going to take a back seat to the things that absolutely have to be done when they're happening, like shooting photos for the magazine or doing interviews.

    All complaining does is make me feel bad. It doesn't get the results up any sooner; I am doing them as soon as time allows. I wish the situation was different, but unless somebody comes up with a grand or so each time to send somebody out to every event, it is what it is.

    Paul:

    I can appreciate that you are all very busy during a race weekend. If Eric runs NMRA next year, we would be happy to volunteer to help out when we attend - Sarasota, Maple Grove, Atco and maybe a few others...

    Have laptop, can type, have user Id - unless you ban us!

    Re: Elimination?? - Results??

    Paul,

    I dont think it is directed at you. The problem is you guys send out email saying you will have resuls and "Live" video. If you do not have the funds or people to do this NMRA should not send evey message board member emails saying you will be doing this.

    I think id you just posted the copies of the time sheets as soon as you can the video could wait. I would rather see the results.

    Good luck

    I should make it clear that PowerTV is now a separate entity, and they're the ones doing the video emails. James feels that since the video is being shot at the track, it is "live" no matter when it gets edited and posted. In the past we've called it "same day," which I feel is a reasonable description, and I'm not sure why they've gone back to using "live" instead. In my opinion, there's no up-side whatsoever in giving people expectations that aren't in line with what you actually deliver.

    I don't want anyone to be disappointed with the reality of how we bring you race coverage versus what we promised, and if this was something that I still had influence over, I'd be trying to change it. I'm sorry.

    Paul - Tell Charlie to pull me on board... I'll work for ya and get the results online next season, if you guys need help.

    PS - I'm with you on the "live coverage" - live is .... well... LIVE. Tape delay is just that - taped and shown on a delay. I understand marketing, and I'd go with Same Day video coverage.

    LOL - Noooooo, I was told that Josh Bolger was covering FFW this season, so I gratefully took the year off and helped out a few of my friends... when I could go. I still got the stats for a few articles tho (I think you looked at the ladders a time or two, lol)

    BTW - Nice having you join the night life in Dallas, Dan... We didn't think you stayed up that late, hahahaha!!

    Re: Elimination?? - Results??

    I'm with you, OD - I even offered to do it for FFW, if they would just pay my expenses of getting to the track and back. I was told it was up to Josh, so I backed off. It's nothing for me to do it cuz I love going, but I can't afford to go and pay my own expenses, doing it for nothing sucks.

    But ALL of us that have had the opportunity to post results know how aggravated the fans get when the results aren't posted pretty quickly. I do sympathize with anyone else doing it, frankly it's a PITA job... but when WE aren't there ourselves... well - let me rephrase that... when I'M not there, I'm as anxious as you guys are - wanting to know what's going on, but I have about 100 numbers that I can call to find out what's going on at the track, lol.
