January 2024 Release Notes

Published on February 3, 2024 12:58 PM by dbo.

In the January 2024 release notes for the CFLdb family of sites, we document the improvements, changes and additions made in the last month. Read on for details.

The following changes have been made to CFLdb Statistics since the last report:

  • Data: Corrected names of two individuals and added season jersey numbers for four players (Thanks Mark!).
  • Data: Additional updates (over 250 updates, additions and deletions this month).

Along with other cosmetic, data, performance, administrative, or infrastructure related bug fixes and enhancements (3 commits this month).

Special acknowledgement to Mark this month. Also, we don’t usually acknowledge our anonymous contributors, but contributions of anonymous individuals has increased last year, and we want to recognize their contributions, including current data coming in, though they prefer no recognition by name. It is important to understand the effort and time provided for all who use CFLdb.

Roadmap

January saw us working with anonymous contributors on point one of the below plan. We expect this work to produce results this year.

We have the following plans for 2024:

  • Continue to expand the game statistics data in the database.
  • Display the statistics available in more places (season week-by-week, team pages, league page, player pages).
  • Develop better tools for contributors to see, question, collaborate and correct data in the database.
  • Continue expanding player data prior to 1930 (IRFU) and 1936 (pre-WIFU Unions).

Found an Issue?

Please report any issues you come across in the data on the site or in its display. If you have concerns over the absence of data or how it is displayed, please let CFLdb know. Thank you for taking the time to make the site better by adding information and sources, eliminating errors and correcting misleading information.

Missed You?

If CFLdb missed your contribution this or any other month, please send a gentle reminder so the record may be corrected. And apologies for the unintended slight.

Contributions, Corrections and Suggestions

Send all contributions, corrections and suggestions to me via methods found on the Contact page. All contributions are credited, with more prominent credit for the largest statistics contributors on the CFLdb Statistics contributor page. The contributor list does, then, reflect the true owners of the site, those that research, compile and contribute data and corrections.
