Well, they'd better get started because they have a whole lot of data entry to do.
And a fancy search routine to write.
No fancy search routine needed. The site can be done in simple ASP with MS Access as the data source. It can also be done in PHP and MySql which I am not good with.
If someone can compile the data in Excel spreadsheet I can import it into a DB. I just don't have time to do both.
Thanks for the memory lane, I'm not really active in posting, but Extremeskins has been my home page since the beginning and it still does.
I've witnessed a lot of what's stated above as well as the continuous growth of this website.
I don't know but I'm probably the oldest non US member of this site and I've kept the same nickname (Novato = Rookie) since day 1 (in honor of Champ Bailey great rookie season).
I have not have the pleasure of meeting none of you guys, I attended the Houston game what, 2 years ago, but did not meet any ES members, I was wearing my ES cap (hey I still have it, as well as 3 black ES T-Shirts... color is pretty faded now but I love them).
I've some some friends depart this life (sadly) and some friends just depart, but we still here strong as ever.

Skins Fever, Fantastic!!!
I also don't have birth date and high school and birth place. All that stuff is listed somewhere else and I don't know how to get to it.
Such an awesome post. Loved reading about the history of the website.
Just don't press the search button as it will re-direct you to his website since the code under the search button is still pointing to redskinsdb.com (root).
If you just press the player by letter you will see that all the data did get downloaded -hopefully.
But, let me know if it is missing anything though.
Shouldn't DH or Blade already have this db? And do we know how out dated it is?

That's the same data I have, but as you can see, it's missing the years they played.
But if you actually use the site to access the db, it includes the years they played and the birth date, birth place, and HS
For the search button to work I would need to recreate the db and redo the search code.
The program I used queried the db on that website and converted it into static web pages. All that info would need to be put back into a DB. But the important part is, at least for right now, we have the data and we can rebuild.

So if the other site's db goes down it won't matter. A query has already been done on all of the players and the data has been posted to one HTML page per player that was in the DB. Static. I now have 1600 pages of data that use to be in the DB. Which I would need to put back into a DB if we really want this project to move forward.
I hope that helps.
That was an awesome read Mark.
It really makes appreciate what you guys, especially TK, do for this website. Maybe it's just me but it seems that TK is shouldering a lot of the load these days. He updated our smileys and he's been making improvements here and there. Real good work.
