'Unknown'

Post by PTRACER » 4 years ago

I have felt since I started this project that everything we input into the database should be 100% identified. Nothing should be entered as 'Unknown'.

Having seen a few items that ARE entered as such already, should I drop this policy? How 'unknown' should we accept?

While working on the Rally Fatalities Project, I've come across a number of spectator fatalities in which the spectator's was not released. How do we wanna proceed with these?

Same as you have already.

So long as the "Also Involved" section contains consistent info like "1 unnamed female (spectator)" or "1 unnamed marshal" etc., and that the Description makes it clear what happened to the bystanders, that's all we need.

I would definitely like some of the main blank spaces to be filled in though, even if it says 'Non-Championship' or 'Unknown'.

Thanks :thumbsup: I can't wait to get my Uni work out of the way so I can start contributing to it again.
