Does anyone know when Phase III will come out?
« on: June 27, 2012, 08:56:40 pm »
I was absent for a while (see my previous thread), so I'm wondering if there is any word on when Phase III will be ready? Will it be after all these ships are done, a certain date, or are there more ships in Phase II that haven't been released yet?

Soon.  When the PTB think it is ready.  I've yet to see any software development happen more precisely.

I have a gut feeling it will be July 4th, because Phase III is supposed to have US ships and July 4th is INDEPENDENCE DAY!

A lovely gift, but most of the PTB are British, and unlikely to celebrate the loss of a great colony.  And the Americans on the Phase III team most definitely will be celebrating with family instead of working.



Plus we still have a baker's dozen ships to complete. ;D

You bet they won't celebrate the loss :P

Have a Happy Fourth everyone!!

I used to drive my Science students crazy because I'd ask them if the had a 4th of July in Britain. They always insisted NO! until I asked them 'What comes after the 3rd and before the 5th??!!' ;D  THEN they got it!! ;)

And also remember:  If at first you don't succeed, try playing outfield! ;D

Did you see this PS in the message to the OW community? P.S.  The new logbooks will mostly be older than those we are used to, but if you want to see some really old documents, have a look at another Zooniverse project - Ancient Lives

I thought we were going to get US WW2 logs  ???

All I heard was Coast Guard. According to wiki that could be pretty old ;)

See the newsletter! :)

Subject:                          oldWeather - have your say
 
oldWeather has been a tremendous success: thousands of us have been following hundreds of different ships, and we've recorded not only the story of each ship but also more than 1.6 million new weather observations.

We've done so well, in fact, that we're moving on to new logbooks - we've read almost every useful Royal Navy logbook from 1914-1923. So the next batch of logs appearing on the site will be quite different, and there will be some changes to the site to accommodate the different logs. As we make these changes, we are trying hard to keep oldWeather simple and pleasant to use, as well as effective in collecting weather and history records, and we'd like your help with this.

Many people love oldWeather, and have devoted lots of time to the project, many others quickly decided it wasn't for them, still others enjoyed it for a while and then moved on. In each case we'd like to know WHY, so we can do better for everyone in future. So whether you loved it, hated it, were bored or indifferent, we need your comments -
please give us your thoughts at: bit.ly/oldWeather

Thanks for your help with this, and if you're waiting to see what the new logbooks are like, hang on just a little longer - we'll send more about that soon.

Philip and the oldWeather team.

P.S.  The new logbooks will mostly be older than those we are used to, but if you want to see some really old documents, have a look at another Zooniverse project - Ancient Lives

"we've read almost every useful Royal Navy logbook from 1914-1923"

So we haven't actually had them all then?  Might we get some more?  To me it is a notable omission that we have not had the Mantua's logs for the first few months of her deployment (though possibly these have been misfiled by the Admiralty and are not available).  :(
