Thanks Tricky,

The page recently created for Pockets Inverness provides an idea of what it's hoped to add for each venue...

http://scottishpo..._inverness



Ideally, for each/any venue, the information will include....

Summary:
General write up on what the venue has to offer.
Including opening hours, food available? and facilities.
Pool, snooker, darts, big screen telly, etc.






Number of...

UK 8ball Tables:

Snooker Tables:

American Pool Tables:


Full Name & Address:





Post Code:
I can use the post code to create a map.


Contact Name:


Contact telephone:


Contact Email:


Web Site:


Twitter Account:



Oh .... and a photo, interior or exterior, would be good too! Smile
Email address for any photos :




As with all the pages on the developing site I'm trying to show the information in the form of 'responsive' displays.
So, if that works out, the pool venue pages should be easily viewed on mobile phones.... which hopefully makes them more useful.
There are also pages so that details of events at major venues can be added. Added events will appear in the calendar and lists of events.

Shandon have just put in 8 new tables but it takes it to a total of 10 + US Pool + snooker. 20p a game on some tables, hourly rate on others.

Dianes has 7 tables upstairs and 2 downstairs. 20p per game.

Riley's has 6 tables + US Pool + snooker. hourly rates only.

Polls and Surveys

For convenience, at the moment, polls and surveys are being treated differently on the development site.


Polls : These are completed by league representatives on behalf of the membership of the SPA's affiliated pool leagues.
The wording of official polls would be determined by SPA officials and a summary would be provided outlining the thinking behind each poll.
Administrators would probably also want to publish a web page expanding upon the consequences of voting one way or another and which allowed site members to add comments or ask questions about the poll.

The votes made by individual league representatives are listed, including the date upon which each representative's vote is cast.
The duration of the poll is set out. After the specified period the poll closes and no further votes can be made.

There are two examples of polls for league reps to complete and test out the system online at the moment.
(League reps are very gradually getting involved... please PM if your league has not yet a rep's account set up on the new site.)

One test poll was added only today so no league rep responses yet.... perhaps those league reps who already have accounts on the new site could log in and complete the second poll.... and those who have not yet done so vote in the first poll about spotted cue balls?

League rep's polls are here...
http://scottishpo...ll_cueball
http://scottishpo...ional_fund

Site users can not only view the results of the polls but see when and how individual league representatives have cast their vote on behalf of their league.

It remains to be decided whether on-line poll results will be used to to arrive at binding decisions, though it's hard to see why not.
There are some clear advantages, not least being greater transparency in the voting process and the involvement, hopefully, of all league reps.
On-line voting by league representatives could perhaps provide a more democratic process than is currently possible?


Surveys : A demonstration survey has been set up just to show what might be possible on a new website.
This demo is open to any site visitor to submit responses at the moment but would normally be restricted to site members... if a new site comes about.

So if you want to try out the demo survey please go to....
http://scottishpo...urvey_demo

After a few responses have been submitted the results will be published.
As I say, you don't need to be signed in to fill out the survey... though don't I think it will allow a second survey response from the same computer/IP address.
Please let me know if there are any problems using the survey, it's still all untested and there may be bugs.

Many thanks.

These are the league representatives who have an account on the development site...

http://scottishpo...gues-email

.... about half of the above reps have so far updated their league's web page on the site or voted in the two test polls.

By the way, only league representatives can vote in those two polls but anyone can vote in the demo survey linked on the site... no need to be signed in (so it's anonymous). It would be useful if a few more folk than the current two could try it out please, just to test for bugs....

http://scottishpo...urvey_demo


Getting back to league online representatives. League reps are also provided with an official SPA webmail address, league twitter account.... and are able to add league or major local events to the calendar.

Many more on-line league reps are clearly still needed to open website accounts.
I can set these accounts up for them.
Are there about 35 leagues? ... I've no idea.

Please PM with details of who will be taking on the job of official online league rep and an account will be set up.

Many thanks.
