Default Who and how?

A small topic for some sort of a how-to.

Who has access to this subforum?
  • HWBOT staff
  • HWBOT OC Archeologist
    • Antinomy
    • Hyperhorn

Only people with the OC Archeologist role on the front page can add submissions to the database. Some people prefer to just be part of the discussion, but don't have the time to actually add the scores. It's possible to just be part of the forum discussion group and not have the front page roles.

How to manage this?

Three steps:
  • Identifying the resources
  • Collecting the records
  • Adding the records to the database (and timeline)

I propose to add the resources like forums and OC databases in the resource sticky thread (click). This thread should have all the resources needed to find the results. To identify the records, I have no suggestion yet. Any suggestions from your side? Maybe a discussion for each benchmark? Or a thread in case there is doubt? False positives are not really a problem since the timeline will find the right record at the right date.

To add the result to the database, we will create a similar interface as we made for the live competitions. This interface allows you to add information as well as upload a screenshot.

The interface is not ready yet, but will probably be included in the next development sprint.

//Edit: since it's been a while, I have set up a dedicated competition page which we can use to add the scores. The competition page can be found here: http://hwbot.org/competition/hwb_ls/. People who want to help with this project will be added as contest moderator and will have access to the admin page (as displayed above). The admin page can be found here: http://hwbot.org/competition/hwb_ls/adminsubmit/.

I think it's very important to collect the following information:
  • Record score (obviously)
  • Date
  • Overclocker (+ nationality)
  • Screenshot (important, but will sometimes be impossible to find)
  • Hardware (as detailed as possible)
  • Reference (where you found the result)
Where courage, motivation and ignorance meet, a persistent idiot awakens.

For all HWBOT community related questions, contact Christian Ney or Websmile. For any other questions, contact me at pieter@hwbot.org.
