A small number of people put a lot of effort into the soaring community to benefit all of us. Sure John has some good points, but the site looks much better and will only get a bit better as the rough edges are worked out..
I would like to thank all who worked on this site and suggest that there are a number of new "volunteers" whom have posted their ideas, criticism and outright damnation. Please contact the SSA office with your donation of time or money to bring the site up to your particular needs. Ask yourself "what would Tom Brady do?", complain or act?

I received the new web site announcement email from the SSA on April 1 saying that in the next 24 hours I would get a link to reset my password. It is now April 7 and nothing thus far (yep, I checked spam). Reading above it seems others have received the link. Am I the only one left in the cold? Out of curiosity I clicked on the Login button (upper right) and all I see is the "Not a member, want to join?" message.

- Yes, the rollout should have been done in the fall, not in the spring, so as not to impact the heart of the soaring season.
- Yes, the first "public" incarnation should have been via an alternate URL.
- Yes, the denizens of RAS should have collectively been asked to test and make comments.
- Yes, the password should not need to be 12 digits long. This is not a bank or the NSA. It's ok to require a special character, upper case, number, etc.
- Yes, impacting low speed access users is bad. Every event I have been to has low speed internet.
- Yes, needing two logins is strange. Must be a two phased rollout.
- Yes, captcha is an annoyance. Hopefully, a cookie is set to remember that I am one of the good guys.
- Yes, not being able to click "Remember me" at login is bad.

Jonathan,

Yes, "Act" is the correct answer of course. The new site is a great step forward and I hope that this brings more power pilots, or non-pilots, into the soaring game.

As an involved volunteer at my club for 20+ years I know personally about those that stand on the sidelines and harp - we call these people "pockets" (hands always in their pockets watching others keep the club going).

My thought is that I would have loved to have been involved in the beta version efforts and helped as a tester. I suspect that others in RAS-land would have also gladly made the same offer. Maybe we would have had zero suggestions after getting involved and understanding what went on behind the scenes.

My $0.02.

John (OHM)




GoodNews..........I just got on without logging in......just punched “Sailplane Racing” on the home page, then “Sailplane Results” and there was the old racing page!

Would be nice to get a copy of the latest SSA contest rules, but all I can get is a 404 page not found.

Yeah, I got the 404 unable page when asking to see the rules, also!
We don’t need no stinking rules!

Yes, the link is in members.ssa.org, but when I try to access it, I get the 404. Other links on the page work OK.

The rules link on the ssa.org site takes me to some weird dropbox link:

On https://members.ssa.org after logging in, click on My Home Page, then on the Sailplane Racing menu, click on Contest Rules and Process. Don't click on Sailplane Racing at the top as it will redirect presently.

So, trying to fill out my paperwork for Region 2 Contest using the link emailed to me when I did the initial, online registration. You need to sign the application, but the link in the email returns a 404 error. I tried logging in and going to the Contest Registration section, but that looks like it ends up with a re-registration (i.e. starting over). I just need the completed PDF(S) so I can sign them...
