OSJ season 3
« on: May 30, 2008, 11:17:38 pm »
i see your actually on your final this weekend  of season 2

sorry didn't realize it was so close to ending 

Right, now Mario has decided to stand down  there is a need for somebody to organize the next season for you guys
i read in another thread  [SJ]FAR say
Quote
if i can help somewhere i would like to do it..we/i have many ideas for a next season...

 
so if it is OK with the rest of you would [SJ]FAR like to organize the next seasons league line up :?: or anybody else for that matter

like Mario said i helped him out by sorting the server as best i could and doing a points table and uploading the replays

as long as there is a set fixture like before then I'm willing to do exactly the same so the only pressure/responsibility is to actually set out the fixtures

the fixture is the tough bit sorting something everybody will like  :tut: :biggrin:

if nobody steps forward then i will do my best to organize something for you but it would be better for somebody running in the league to do the organizing  ;)

 you can choose any cars/tracks that are legally available for GTR2 just bear in mind it takes time for me to upload what is needed   so the bigger the list the longer it will be before your season can start  :nose:

anyway run through any ideas you want  and we will go from there

thanks in advance Ian

It's sorry to see someone step down, but I know what you're going through Mario. I wish I had another 5 hours in my day, though I'd probably still spend them in the garage lol

I'll give a huge +1 vote to having Frank run the show. Having him in my Race07 team has been a real god send when I didn't have the time to race & live. He is always on the ball here giving number of laps, setup tips, track testing, etc. He's also one of the charecters that make this place so great.

It's all good Frank the important thing is that we have people here willing to step up with Mario stepping down I'm sure between the lot of us we will have OSJ GTR2 well and truly under control :yep: :)

Agreed, as long as the racing goes on :)  I too am interested in the answers to Franks questions.
I have no idea what I am doing, but am a quick learner and knowing nothing has not stopped me so far  lol

would be interested in running in this, orlending a hand where possible, but havent been able to get a cheap copy of gtr2 :( dont have the finances for a $60 copy. Anyone got a spare they dont want anymore? Have been using an 'evaluation' version and love the P & G mod, but cant race online with youse fellas :( and online is more important to me than vs AI.

But i have some questions (i have my own answers but would like to hear the others so that there is nothing missing):

Which part has to be done from me or us exactly?

Which parts will do exactly Gizmoto?

Do we need to get access to the server if something goes wrong?


well it all depends on how much any of you want to actually do
1,  if you just want to organize the events, what cars/track and when you want to run them  then give me a full list i will take it from there
then i will sort out all the announcements,set the server, sort the points, and sort the replays 


2 you can do it as Mario did it  sort out the events cars/track and when then make the announcements
i will then make sure the server is set sort your points and replays

or there is
3 take Full control of every aspect this will mean 1 person becoming a server admin with all the responsibility that entails with access to the server for the purpose of setting the server for each event, sorting the season out  tracks and cars and when  you can even do the points and sort the replay out if ya like {but i will offer to carry on doing the points and replays  for you as i have things all set-up here ;)}  who ever takes this option will have explain what is needed to do the job

4 a mix of all above that suits whoever take on the job lol
this we can talk about when anybody decides to do it

as far as the actual events are concerned whoever decides to work out the season be it just 1 of you or a group you have full control of what you run  all i need to know is if there are any new tracks/mods needed with links so i can set-up the servers

any additional tracks/mods needing adding to the server i will keep control of simply because there are a few GTR2 servers on the game server that need to be kept up to date whenever anything is added

That all looks good to me Frank.  thumbs up
Personally I would love to get straight into it, but that is mostly because I have only just got into GTR and only done 1 and a bit races.  If you guys want a break then I am happy with a few fun races here and there.  :biggrin:

1. It would be good to have admin rights for GTR-Manager to correct the weight-penalties, for restarts, for postioin-swaps and so on...
2. Who can we contact if the server is set incorrectly?? Maybe there is alist of names who can do this...
3. maybe it would be good to have one of us as an admin just in case there is something wrong, but the generally setup of the server should be done by Giz


1 not a problem will add a few of you guys so there is always somebody in the races with GTR-manager admin;) {{ let me know who you want on the list }}
2 will supply a list of people who can be contacted and when most of the time {I'm around most the time plus i will make sure server is set 24 hours before race time at least so it can be tested well in advance }
3 somebody can be given admin right to the server in case of emergency if needed {will need to talk to rest of Main admin to sort this }

and 4 whoever takes up the organisation of the OSJ and needs forum access to sort out the announcements will be given moderator status for the OSJ section in place of Mario {so ya need to sort out who is "leader" ;)}

it is no problem for me to do what i have done so far with Mario  as long as i know when and where I'll sort things

if you want a different points system that also is not a problem just let me know what it is and I'll use it ;)

main thing is you guys keep having the fun  thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up

All sounds good to me :) personally I think it's probably best if Frank takes the lead role, and me and Nodnerb help out where needed.  It's very easy to see by the posts so far that FAR has the passion for the job  :toast: :salute:

 :salute:

Ok, your wish is my command...i`ll do it as a leader with the help of Dammit and Nodnerb (i`m sure he will become a SJ-Member too after his applicant-time)
So these three should also be the guys who have access to the GTR-Manager.

One of us should get the access to the server for emergency cases...Giz can choose one if he likes, don`t know how difficult it is to set the server up...

What is differnet to the the normal access in the forum?

We have to act fast because there is already the wish for a Le Mans Enduro in two weeks...

Did you guys have skype? It`s maybe agood idea to talk sometimes instead of posting all the time.Here is my Skype address if needed: far_rosi

Good point Frank it had not even entered my mind  silly arse
It was very presumptuous of me to put my hat forward and perhaps out of place as an applicant.  :oops: I had not thought about it.
I don't have skype, but am sure it is only a download away.  Alternatively we could use a free Ventrilo channel perhaps

finally managed to get a legit copy of GTR2 for $NZ20 approx 1.50 UK lol , so hopefully can attend some races..although you guys usually race on a Sunday night at the same time as the Kiwisim Race fun series (around 8:30pm starts), correct?
