  Again passwords to the races! 

Hello!

Please download and watch this replay to see why EOLC should start the servers with race password.

http://www.share-online.biz/dl/DE82TEONH5B

Follow M. Florkin and watch his behaviour on the track.
9:02 - I hit him as I expected he would give me the racing line
7:55 - He ruins Casula's lap

As you can see he ruined the qualification of two regular drivers. He could be there because the server was not passworded. I suggest to password all challenge races.

What's your opinion?

Hi Gabor,

You are right.

On 10 May I watched the replay and wrote here:

Hi,

Next race we'll have a password. I didn't use passwords to make it less complicated for myself, I mean, to make sure latecomers could join quickly without (my) help and without logging in to the forum to find the password.

Sorry Gabor



& sorry Fabian

Best regards,
David

np. in fact (if I remember correctly) I didn't want to run a lap but just practice breaking onto T3 and the park the car
erm.. park the car as I was unhappy with the setup and wanted to use the remainder of the time rather to brainstorm about some tweaks on the setup.

David, I see your concept about "open server" (i.e. more drivers literally finding their way to the races) but I think the world doesn't really run that way.. and it poses maybe more risk than gain.

I would agree with Gabor and rather revert to password locked server.
we can still be somewhat open to additional drivers in such a way as that people can ask for permission if they show up in the EOLC chatroom prior to the qualy.

btw. what do you think of automated reminder (newsletter) e-mails*) ?
a) our races are greater spaced apart than they used to be. so great that people apparently tend to forget about the races we could avoid that by sending reminders
b) we could "spam" registered users of old and who knows, maybe some will consider to show up for a race or two (a reminder e-mail provides a sense of being involved thus some might return. if only occasional)

*) ofc only 1 person COULD implement that.... *jump into cover*
