No offense to either of you, but turning it into a game would really put me off. Just make it a contest of who can enter the most reports!
No offence taken, but the point is that while this might put off some of us regulars (it's nothing I'd be personally keen on either, actually; I'd favour the 'holiday resort' version), it could potentially be a way of getting more people to participate in the project. I mean, this isn't just about us and what we would like, is it? It's about coming up with ideas for making boring, event-free weather data more appealing to people in general
, because that will benefit the project as a whole.
At the moment, there aren't really that many active transcribers - which isn't too much of a problem now, because we're dealing with a relatively small subset of the available data, but if a big lump of weather-station data were to be added on top of the additional logs we'll be able to transcribe thanks to the grant, it could become a bit problematic if the bulk of the trancribing is being done by just a few dozen people...
