Hi all

I've been developing a new National Championship Attendance Table and Graph page - much more analysis is possible now. Take a look at http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/attendance.aspx - www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/attendance.aspx and tell me what you think!

I'd also really like to know what features and options you'd like added to this.

Cheers, Mark

Very cool, it took me a while to notice that when you scroll over the right hand list the graphs increase in boldness, and i would suggest making this a more noticeable visual feature by increasing how much the lines expand

There also seems to be a bug i noticed from checking the line for 18s, that the lack of entry for 2010 means the graph stops at '09 although there is '11 data in the system

I might be limited in what Google Charts can do on this - I'll take a look.

The line should stop if a year is missing and restart again but I see that doesn't work if there's a single point (such as the 18's with 2011) . I could interpolate Nulls (guess the missing points) - there's a function for that but of course that would actually give false data for the missing year.

So it's not only me working on what should be a sailing day......

It would be nice to be able to select certain classes (say up to 5 classes at a time).

I've not played with Google Charts...I'll have to give that a try.

Like some other things - sailing is more enjoyable when you do it with someone else

Hi all

Following on from the http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/attendance.aspx - Nationals Attendance Graphs , I've been working on the Class pages. The new section is not quite complete but you should be able to click on the Class Icon at the top right of news articles to see the new-look.

http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/Albacore - Click here for an example of a class (Albacore).

I'd really value your feedback on these bits and any bugs you find!

Cheers, Mark

Very nice.

(and an excellent choice of class in your example Smile - although we need to get our fixture list up to date).

Very good Mark.  I hope lots of classes will step up to the mark and provide the necessary info.

And the latest part of the new Classes section is the Class Finder - it's now linked in from the top menu.

http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/ - http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/

I'm still populating a few classes with data (such as trapezes), but the main ones should be there.

When I put in "dinghy", the Minisail vanishes from the list! Is that because it is an Ironing board?!

Yes, this is the exact reason. I just hadn't got round to putting Ironing Board into the drop-down list yet.

P.S. I've now set the categories for Minisail. Just 139 other classes to go!

Thank you! Sorry to start complaining before you've done the work... I'll be quiet now!

Glad I'm not the only one at work today - just finished printing a run of 1000 magazines, so get to escape at 1.00.

Sounds like you should support GRF's plans for burning boats, to reduce the number of classes you have to work on!

Bare bones of a class page now added at http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/beneteau-first-21.7 - http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/beneteau-first-21.7

What we could now do with is news from your class. Send any reports and photos (together with photographer name / caption and confirmation that we have permission to use them) through to club@yachtsandyachting.com

A load more options now added to the Attendance Tables/Graphs at http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/attendance.aspx - http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/attendance.aspx

It also updates the graph as you're going along now. Keep the ideas of what you'd like to see coming!

Hi Mark,
It is great what you have done on the Nationals statistics. Well done.
Cheers

PS one comment I would make now we are getting later in the summer - the quick link to the full table of statistics in Classes only includes years up to 2011. To view the 2012 result you have to poggle around in the above link. It is probably time to flip to include 2012 data on the quick link.

Hi Bob

I'm a bit lost on this one - http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/attendance.aspx - www.yachtsandyachting.com/class/attendance.aspx does show the 2012 data doesn't it?

Cheers, Mark
