For example:

http://mngca.org/lakers/laker.php?id=10

Unless I'm totally confused, RJ took it from the event, placed it in Timber Shores. Then, Rouster took it from Timber Shores, and put it in Crow's Nest.

Due to something that happened, I'm assuming related to timestamps, it's a bit out of order, and the system thinks Rouster has possession of it when he indicates otherwise in the cache logs.

Do I have a possible solution? *shrug* Maybe a sequential ID number for each activity on a laker to keep things in order reguardless of timestamp? Or would that cause even more problems...

This sort of thing happens with travelbugs too. . .

Suggestions? Or do we just be careful?

I noticed that when I was testing out the laker site, when I would put my own date in, things got screwy. As long as I didn't touch the time/date thing, everything stayed in order.

I have edited my logs so it is in the correct order now.

I didn't notice the timestamp when I logged the grab. I removed it when I logged the drop because I had no idea what time it was, making the drop at 00:00 and the grab when I logged online.

Even a sequential system will depend on who logs first. I guess I'll just be more careful about times. Not easy for someone, like me, that can't even get the date right sometimes.

towlebooth,

can you fix the timestamps for "L of the Isles"? Gaffroz put a pickup date in 2008 and it has been screwed up ever since. I tried to contact him but have not recieved a reply. He has not been logged in since 10 Aug. Confused

Thanks
