There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

Internet Community Rage


Italy 28 Aug 2010 at 23:18 | Published by: Hans | Views: 6183 | News search

Internet Community Rage The Internet community has been raged today by the lack of online results from Predazzo.

The arrangers didn’t know how to update the cup-three when the first round was finished in Bangolf-Arena. They tried a long time with different people as experts on the software but without any success.

This was of course a major irritation factor for the often thousands of online spectators to our sport. This is the major event of the year and now it’s not working is a argument heard in many of the different Minigolf forums around the Internet.

People have shown their irritation and one might wonder why the arrangers didn’t publish the result in another way earlier.

Still this evening the final rounds are missing from the result page. Minigolfnews have taken an old-school photo of the result board and its available in our Photo Gallery.

I think the Finnish system is great. I've never dreamed I would be driving to work while checking the latest updated results of the Portuguese players at the SNC in Cheb!
I just don't know why it doesn't gives us the general statistics, because I know the software calculates that.
Of course there's a lot of hardware involved and the chance of failure increases. But as we've noticed in Italy, the human factor isn't all that reliable...

Remember that it is WMF Technical Committee who finally decides how the system is _allowed to work_ during the competition.

We had some different ideas for the system before EURO 2008, but WMF Technical Committee decided what the user interface must include, and what is forbidden in it.

The main idea for Stockholm 2010 is to use BA + lane-by-lane functionality. WMF and the Swedish Federation are supporting this effort done by Lars Isberg. Uppsala and CJ helps us test and specify how it shall work. This is currently under development and the plan is to have a well tested solution by next summer. This is not the same solution that has previously been tried by Askim and is instead developed by Lars Isberg himself.

At the moment we in Uppsala are testing BAs lane-pr-lane function at it works really well. Hopefully we will invest in a bunch of WLAN capable phones and have a system in place for our clubcompetitions for next season.

The Finnish system can not be handled by some local IT guy.
We used it in Odense (with great success thanks to Tommi) but it would never have worked without assistance.
Bangolf Arena can be handled by almost anyone (OK - IT knowledge helps) and are almost there when we talk about lane-pr-lane results.
My vote goes to Bangolf Arena

ps. IT can be a pain in the a..

actually an austrian ad on TV says that
"...90 % of men do not "need" a user manual..."

some of you already mentioned earlier that everything is within the package. I believe there's nothing more to add?! :)

I am just astonished that no one had the idea to put the results in an excel file, make a pdf out of it and put in online.

Bangolf Arena is a very good program, with more functions than any other program has. Just not the cool photo layout, which I have designed to the Finnish system :-]

The Finnish system is usually rented as a total package, including the phones and an administrator who has years of experience using the program. That brings reliability to the system, when it is used by someone who really knows what he is doing.

Maybe its a good idea too use the same system as the Finish competitions do? Its much better then BA i think.

you are hoping for the best, aren't you?

I am sure anyone else would have tested it before?!...

Two major events located in Italy next year. Hopefully, it will be a lesson learned for them.
