    Default Data and techie stuff thread for BAFS 2016

    Just wondering if it would be possible to link the old Freezing Saddles web pages somewhere on the FreezingSaddles.com page? In addition to the team and individual points, it would be great to see the previous Data Exploration, Pointless data, etc. Even the pics would be great, although I think they vanished after a certain number or something. Essentially the whole thing. Even if they are just static screenshots or something, it would definitely be cool.

    I think the 2013 page is still somewhere on the internet, but not sure where.

    Those pages are no longer on the Freezing Saddles site, because the data was cleared out. However, if you go to the registration page for this year, there is a link to the archived individual scores from last year, which in turn links to archived team scores. (You may have to click an x on the header thingie on the individual scores to see the link to the team scores.)

    Correct. But that's just a little peak into last year's info. I was thinking it would be cool to archive the 2015 and 2014 and 2013 complete sites with the information all in there somewhere. For historical interest.

    The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, and it will quickly and rightly forget that we rode here.

    You'll have to ask hozn about that one. The database was cleared out at the end of each year. The Internet Archive didn't archive the site for the first time until the beginning of 2015. So 2013 and 2014 are gone for good already, unless hozn saved the data he deleted somewhere (and is willing to put it back somewhere).

    The most recent pics from 2015 are still available via this link.

    I will make an good, but timeboxed effort to get previous year(s) up for reference. I agree it is a good idea. We definitely have the old datasets, though probably the databases from previous years won't be compatible anymore.

    What hashtag should be used to have recent photos appear on the Freezing Saddles home page?
    Instagram? Any other social media?

    Also, any specifics that can be provided to new players regarding the web site I'm sure would be appreciated.

    Last year, the hashtag for Instagram was #BAFS2015. I'm assuming that it will be #BAFS2016 this year.

    However, the only way that photos appeared on the Freezing Saddles home page last year was if they got associated with a Strava ride (which at that point happened only if you linked your Strava and Instagram accounts). This year, Strava has its own photos feature, which does not require use of Instagram. You would have to check with hozn as to whether photos that are added directly to Strava, as opposed to getting synced from Instagram, will automatically show up under recent photos on the Freezing Saddles site if they are associated with a ride that is counted for Freezing Saddles, or whether some other mechanism is required.

    We will need to update the code to support the non-insta photos, but this shall be done.

    Would this be a good place to ask about a leader board issue? The two people currently holding us all on their shoulders only have 1 point each, but show 1 mile and 1 day ridden. Other 1 mile/1 day riders show 11 points. Did they just ride short miles?
