Many of the older coaches will remember the Recordopedia Spluttanica, a substantial if somewhat haphazard record log for FUMBBL achievements.

I've always had a soft spot for team and player fluff, and I think it would be great to get this back up to date and a bit more user friendly.

I'm happy to put the time in compiling it, but would need some help from one of you script geniuses to pull the info out for past games.

I was thinking of starting it again as a Recordopedia Spluttanica CRP Edition.

Could also combine it with the FUMBBL CRP Badges perhaps?

With BBCode and a number of people very skilled at it about we could make a thing of beauty Very Happy

I was thinking of making PDF versions of several "books" with a BBCode library shelf to click on for the various volumes. Such as Recordopedia Spluttanica, FUMBBL Badges, Classic Forum Fails, Classic Threads, the guide made by Wreckage etc etc.

I already have numerous images to use for the blank books pages, book covers and library shelves thanks to my hooarder mentality when it comes to images.

Any thoughts/suggestions/abuse?

You seem somewhat keen on this idea, but it's hard to be sure.

Work has begun on the parts to make it, just need someone to provide scripts to pull the info out for me.

edit: here's the bookshelf I've adapted:

I'm sure loads of people would love to help, but what you're asking is a tough task beyond most and you're counting on them reading this forum thread.

I'd PM some people who you think could do it. Check out the API thread. There are some coders kicking about in there Very Happy

Great idea. However, without a direct access to FUMBBL's database, it would be almost impossible to write a script to check the past records.

I mean... Not impossible at, but it would take forever to run and request so many web pages the server may very well mistake it for a DDOS attack. Wink

Think about it: how many CRP games have been played? Let's say one million. That would be one million match report pages to download. And just as much for individual achievements (you'd have to download all the player pages to do so). And all the team pages as well (you need them for checking the debut games etc).

Really, I don't know how Lord_Splutticus compiled it, but it's sick. I wouldn't even bother thinking about the script without asking Christer first if he minds having the server spammed with requests for a while (and if you're going to ask him, you could ask him to run some SQL queries server side instead - that would be so much easier).

Thanks Kam, some of that I even understood Very Happy

Will message Christer and wait and see what happens then whilst I work on the design and layout side of things.

Yeah I don't think Splut has really been active since the start of CRP. So starting with CRP would be a good idea.

Started building the book on Word, and will convert to PDF when done.

Thank you Very Happy

If anyone knows a quick way to upload a doc file I can show the rest of the prep work. I've made a background image for the pages that looks like old paper, and am using the blackadder (yep the TV show) font to look like old handwritten pages. It is all easily editable too.
