I would totally agree with HS on that, I also have trust that the UK team will be aware of the problems and also will have a better overview of the difficulties than the rest of us can have.
SO FAR, VS have always come right over what they have said they will do, OK it may take longer than many of us would wish, but we are not aware of the complexities of what they are tackling - we only see the outcomes.
I think it is fair to say that the old site was modified so often and in so many ways all apparently undocumented that anyone looking at it now will struggle to dissect the pieces we want from the mish-mash of superfluous add-ons. It is of course, "old" technology and the staff currently working on the technical aspects will NOT be familiar with how it used to be constructed - things have evolved markedly and it would be the same as expecting a modern car technician to sort out a problem in a steam driven vehicle - they MIGHT be able to sort it if they can acquire the understanding and skills, but there can be no guarantee of success.
So, may I suggest that we continue to differentiate between those pieces which we definitely want to retain in some form, such as the campsite database and possibly some of the other supporting peripherals and also clearly identify those parts that we fail can be safely disabled from view - such as the goal and the awards - none of which have functioned in my life-time on here, yet they still appear and things like "Entertainment"- not used and therefore just taking up bandwidth.
That is my suggestion, but of course others are welcome to disagree.
