Change of rules - What kind of Events belong into the Database

<Post edited by Count Zero on 6/4-2016 19:12>

Quite a while ago the mod team started a general discusion on updating the CSDb rules regarding several aspects. To start off "slowly" we started by finding an agreement on changes towards "Meetings" (Parties!). The result can be found at https://csdb.dk/help.php?section=rules under Section V Paragraph 10.

Under 1. we added "C64" to point out that there is a strong desire towards this special 8bit machine. Point 2. was reworded slightly to be more precise.

Both points combined lead to surely debatable combinations and entries but basically it _IMHO_ boils down to:

- defining "historical" regarding C64 scene content and events
- the value of releases

For the "historical" part we have choosen to start off at 1st of January 2000 (to show how liberal we actually are) ending on the 1st of January 2016. You guess right. We found tons of entries without releases and pages requiring a definite update. Overall a quick glance was taken at about 500 of the nearly 2500 "meetings" revealing a horrible picture:

- about 15-20% of the entries simply don't deserve the entry here unless a release gets added (meeting in a pub to spend money on beer is _NOT_ making scene history!)
- MANY of the added links don't work anymore and it is beyond our understanding why http://sil.ly.ip.addy/party.html suddenly doesn't work anymore...
- entries with no linked releases AND only 2-3 sceners attending. This excessive info won't turn the meeting entry into an entry of historic relevance at all - not now and not in the far future really. Entries with no linked releases and MANY sceners attending? Where is at least some party report? YOU SCENERS maintain the database and your entries! It is not up to anyone else to report on how the meeting turned out!


So, the following 61 events were deleted. You can currently not access them. We will restore them on request: meaning "you found the missing release" to be added to that particular entry is one of few reasons to do so. Yes, this MEANS you can finally dig out the disk you saved the scrolltext on at $party, link it to the intro screen and release something!

The list below also means pure drama!

I was under the impression that at least one of the Focus meetings had a party report but if not I'm more than willing to add one if still possible.

I second that. I even added my own experiences in the comment section. Now I know that Ben & I getting fucked up doesn't constitute scene history, but it sure added to our scene history ;)

Focus meeting #5 ( "Revolt of the Slaves", 5 attendants ) and Focus Meeting #6 ( "Welcome to Ben's house", 6 attendants, can't wait for meeting #80 ... ) had nothing attached to it at all.

TDJ: whenever you found your report packaged into the ready to upload FLI upscroller, just say so :)

Every scene event is about boozing at the camp fire, but not every "boozing at the camp fire" event is a scene event.

I guess, I better get that demo-creator ready for Camelot usage so you can release something again soon ;-)

I just got another idea for CSDB.dk clean up.

Let us adjust groups and releases based on how many years since release, so after each year your releases looses half a point...

Same goes for groups who does not release anything... I wonder how the top 10 would look in each category after those adjustments.

Now we could have lists of ACTUAL ACTIVE TOP lists, which would be cool, I think.

Double-score-dungeon, eh?
