History Section

Is there something that we can do to get the history section updated? In my opinion, it's one of the most important aspects of the website (in addition to being a place for alumni to discuss things, and to host photos), and yet we went from having Team/Buggy/Driver/Pushers (at least somewhat) in 2009-2010, to Team/Buggy in 2011, to just the Team in 2012. In fact, the website doesn't even list new buggies since 2012. Is there something we can do to get this updated (even if we don't have pushers/drivers, it would be nice to at least know which buggy rolled for which teams)?

If it's as simple as updating a database, I'm happy to spend some time updating. If it requires actual technical skill, sadly, I'm out.

Unfortunately it's currently more difficult than a little data entry. Were it that easy we would absolutely appreciate the help though.

It's something that we know has been an issue and is on our list. We just need to find the time to actually go in and implement.

Add buggy history here: ... c/viewform
Add raceday info here: ... I/viewform
Other organization/participant details here: ... o/viewform

If someone has a large batch of updates then sharing a spreadsheet is probably easier, but if you add info to these forms then we will get the details into the database.

Thanks Revo, yeah, I agree if we get the data collected, we can definitely get it in now. I got back in better touch with the DB in prep for my "history of buggy" talk so I'm ready to add and update.
