Much of my focus has been on inserting performances so athletes preparing for Perth could be better informed about the competition. Focus will switch so I can catch up on the other things important to you. Scroll down to read more.
Everything on this site is inspired by Masters Athletes – this is your site so that is the way it should be. This site will improve more with your feedback.
What to expect in the months ahead
Now that the WMA Championships are underway, focus will shift to cleaning up errors, making the planned changes like adjusting non-FAT 400 meter times and removing excessive wind performances from sprints, short hurdles and horizontal jump rankings lists (they will still appear in performance lists and athletes’ profiles) and fundraising. Inserting performances will not cease for the next couple of months – tens of thousands more should be inserted between now and the end of the year.
End of Year Goals:
- Get caught up on addressing correction needed notifications & corrections identified by MastersRankings
- Design database & modify programs to accommodate changes mentioned above.
- Insert no less than 80,000 more performances
- Raise 2016 expense balance and 50% of 2017 funding
Why is fundraising important?
Contributions and memberships have enabled this site to continue as they have paid for business expenses like insurance, hosting & licenses. No salaries have been paid and we have not been able to add staff. Sponsorships and grants are the plan for providing funding needed to sustain MastersRankings. All secured funds go to pay expenses to run this site including a small staff to keep up with the volume of work. Thank you to everyone who has helped with fundraising. Do you want to help? Email or call me (you can call through Facebook Messenger) to discuss how you can.
