March 2016 saw a number of display enhancements along with the addition of additional roster information and new search capabilities on the CFLdb Statistics site. Read on for more details.
Since the last report, the following fixes and enhancements have been made:
For the jersey number and player classification data added, jersey numbers are filled from pre-training camp rosters published in the annual CFL Facts, Figures and Records publications. Anyone who wishes to contribute to the completion of this data can submit record of rosters from a game program, newspaper or other source (electronic copies please). Players can wear multiple jersey numbers in a season, so submissions of multiple games can provide additional players and changed jerseys. Player classification data is complete, however data entry or other errors may have been made. Please submit any corrections via the contact page. I have not reviewed the new seasons or done a basic audit of the aggregate values to check for errors.
Expansion of roster jersey and classification information will continue as time permits. Bug fixes and display improvements will continue as discovered. Major backend work and new features are being developed but no timetable is in place as to when they will be delivered.
