If some of the points listed are wrong, who do I notify?

You will want to send a email to NadacSharon@aol.com

Be sure to include your dogs registration number and any pertinent info.

Means the thread will always stay at the top of the list.

So anything important, or stuff we want new people to be able to find easily gets 'sticky' :)

When are the points going to show up on the NADAC website?

They are being worked on as we speak.  Soon :)

Not complaining....just asking.   It says points are new here each week.  Yet when I look at the file for my dog, the most recent points are from March 10....and yes, we've done trials since then.

(and please excuse me if I posted this is the wrong place....I totally do not get this forum thing yet)

Try going here:

http://nadacforum.com/Points.php (http://nadacforum.com/Points.php)

If they are not on there then you will need to contact Sharon as they never made it to us :)

Chris- is there a way to put that points link someplace even easier to find? Like, in Media? So (even though it's sticky and will be at the top) we don't have to search discussion category for it? (does that make sense?)

Thanks, Lynn

I will see.   The media section is set up for documents, photos and video.  Not sure if I can put just straight text in there in a readable fashion.

But I shall investigate 8)

One thing I noticed (not a big deal) - when a dog has 5 pt increments (from skilled Q's or 15 pt bonus Q's) the NATCH designations do not show up because they are looking for specific points (ie: 130 pts, 230 pts).

10   ECC   305   ECC-300   10/23/2010
10   ECC-V   315      2/26/2011
10   ECC-V   325      3/12/2011
10   ECC-V   335      5/1/2011
15   ECC-V   350      6/18/2011

If you're ever totally bored and need something to do, you can update the script to account for this. :)

Could you maybe have a date on the page to indicate the day  points were updated?
Title: Re: Points files not yet on website *Sticky Topic*
Post by: Jackie on April 23, 2012, 03:11:26 PM
So if I am missing some points on the forum site, but they show up on the NADAC website (they are old points--first ones listed on the website) should I let Sharon know?  Or will they eventually show up on the forum?

Hi Chris,

When I look at my points for Ziva 10-01026 on the new Points Forum I see she has earned her NCC title twice.  Looks like the points were not combined properly.  Took me a while to figure out where the new points were but now I see they are just listed as a separate title.  Can you take a peek?

Thanks,

Karin

I just bookmarked to post that has the link in it.  At least for now that's easy to find for me.  I don't know if that would suit you or not!

You could just Bookmark it or Favorite the link once you get there in your browser for future reference.

Otherwise just refer to the sticky note topic and click on it.

Actually I manually do those, so if you send me a registration number, I will fix that!

I have bookmarked it, but it's not really for me that I'm asking, but for my students and NADAC newbies. Most of them will join the forum only for the ability to check their points (at least at first), and I want it to be easy to find, and easy for me to describe where it is!

Sharon - you should have Chris or someone create a script so you don't have to manually manage the 5 pt intervals! It really isn't a big deal for me since I know the points needed for the titles.

The dog I see this for is Brisco 05-04325

I try and keep his numbers even by going for 20 pt bonus lines, but sometimes all that are offered are 15s. :)

I think this is a great idea.  I've got this page bookmarked for the address to find points, but it would be nice to have a reserved place for it like media does.

And how about a topic category for kudos?

None of these are critical, as I know you are busy.  Thank you for taking on this job.

Adding a link in the media section isn't an option.   I have explored many options and the Media tab can only be used for media (Video,Photos,Documents).

I am looking at just adding a new tab altogether that would say 'Points'.    And that may be a more viable option.
Title: Re: Points files not yet on website *Sticky Topic*

And...wait for it...BAM!   We have a points tab  8)

I noticed that I'm missing a 10pt Novice Jumpers Q from 4-15 at Family Dog Center.  They had an issue with their software that caused Savannah to NQ, when she in fact did Q (they had her as Proficient and she is Skilled).  They said they fixed it in the computer, but I don't see her Q in her file, she is 10-11126.  Any thoughts on how we can get this fixed?

Thanks so much!

Amazing! Thank you Chris!!!! ;D  ;D  ;D
