Nick  - I think you are correct on that, but I also think Barton want to categorize types too!! If we only put totals on our post, how does the type of Rev figure in?  

 

Not sure Wayne, but I thought that I remembered John trying to get that format established, some time back.  All he wanted was raw data.  That's why I added in the (for now), in my previous post. 

 

I suppose you are correct, to some extent, but regardless, I think that it is Barton's intention, that WE, as the users, will add all the descriptive data, such as size, type, etc., somewhere down the road, and no one (administrator) will have to go through, hunting and pecking, trying to figure out what we actually got.  I'm guessing you will have to go in and classify/identify your own kites, once the new system is complete.  There are just too many entries out there, that don't have anything, other than the raw data [ username +/-# (total) ] that John originally asked for.  At this time, I'm thinking that they (?) are keeping up with only the numbers, which we will be able to access, later, and be allowed to add in a description or classification or something.  No way anyone could go through all the old posts, and make note of all the comments, etc, that have been made............ 

 

But I'm just speculating..................Barton will let us know soon enough.....I'm sure...........ani_victory.gif

 

Whatever, this has got to be an enormous undertaking, but I think it will be worth the wait.

For this thread, the general Global Rev Count, the "user +\- # (total)" is all that I need in order to keep the current list up to date. I personally enjoy seeing the details of the transactions and, yes, will use the rev type information as I build the new database. So from an administrative standpoint, please use that format to report your totals, but please continue to include the narratives and descriptions also if you wish.

That would make sense, adding descriptors after the fact! That's why I usually put an inventory on my posts, but those with much larger collections will be hard pressed to even put their info in place! I'll bet some don't even know what they have!!! Then again ......!ani_giveup.gif

Crap!  I guess that means that I would need to get a new Rev, to be able to do that, at this point. Sometime back, I went all the way back through, to the beginning, and changed all of my old posts, to the new format ! cat_shy.gif

What?? Still got room for more in the Rev bag, but it is getting full!! Only reason for room is that my Indoor goes in a separate tube with my gliders, only for indoors! Still have room for 1-2 more!!ani_idea.gif

 

PS: at Lincoln City this last weekend, I flew 5 different sails, depending on conditions! Something for just about anything!!ani_yahoo.gif

THE CORRECT FORMAT, FOR ADDING OR REMOVING A REV IS:
 
USERNAME  +/- #  (total)
 
USERNAME ........... is your username, that you go by on the forum
+/- # ........................ is the number of Revs that you are adding to, or subtracting from, your total
(total) ...................... is the total number of Revs, that you now own, after adding to, or subtracting from, your previous total
 

As a favor to me, so that I can be sure that I am keeping your totals correctly, please include this format somewhere in your post. I have no problem with you also including the back story about your transactions. It just helps for clarity to have this format included somewhere. As has been discussed, I am working on a new format for the Global Rev Count that will include a categorical breakdown by model. Each user will have the opportunity to input either a bulk total or a total for each model of rev. The entries will go into a database that will be used to display to the whole community the list of flyer and total number of revs (like the current list) plus a new Global Count broken down by Rev model. Each user will also have the option to display their own individual model breakdown to the community. I am working on the automation of the data entry and display processes, as well as capturing the model data in this existing thread so that the old data is not lost when the new system comes online. I'm not a programmer so this is taking longer than I want, but I am working in it, and I hope that you all can be patient with time while I'm working though this. I will keep this thread updated in the interim. So please keep posting and telling us about your Revs and where they are going in the world. ---Barton

Thanks everyone for the replies. I'm glad to hear the project is still going. Thanks bbailey for working on a new better system. Hope you can get access soon to update the first post. I didn't realize that was an issue.

I have updated the list and the first post should now reflect the count up to btbt's post.  Please let me know if I've gotten something wrong.

4 revs plus one on order, but one of those 4 is a Backtracker which I never fly. So I don't know if  you really want to count that one, it is a Rev in name only and part of their history.

Unless the sail is completely and irrevocably unusable, I'm willing to count it as long as it was made by Rev unless anyone objects.
