PJ Losey & Donations
I would like to take this moment to announce that PJ Losey has offered to help with development of iLeagueRace going forward. PJ has been involved in many different sim racing related websites over the years. iLeaguerace is a pretty complex piece of software so 2 heads are better than one. I personally look forward to what PJ can bring to the table to bring iLeagueRace forward.
I've tried to do this myself for a couple of years now putting 1000's of hours of my time and money into this project, so it is nice to have someone else on board to help.
In other news. I've tried my hardest to avoid adding a donate button to the main ileaguerace website. The intention of ileaguerace was never about money, just to control the quality of the leagues using the service. A good league requires putting a time investment in. League Admins determined enough to do so have kept ileaguerace going up to this point. We have almost 4000 registered racers on ileaguerace. So if you run in leagues that are run at ileaguerace, and would like to give back a little even a $1 donation is welcomed, but not required. I would like to also suggest if you do donate, to donate an equal amount to the league you race in. As they are the ones that make the league great and keeps you coming back. You can find the donation link in the top right of the main website. It is also typically where it is located on the specfic leagues within ileaguerace.
PJ and I hope to have more exciting news about ileaguerace moving forward.
It has been quite sometime since I have made a news post on ileaguerace.com. Be rest assured that I do intend on continuing to develop,improve and maintain the ileaguerace.com service. Currently I am spending time evaluating a new update to bring the league pages more upto date in terms of design standards, in terms of reponsive design. With the size of the system currenlty in place, every template file needs to be completely overhauled for this to happen. I also intend on improving some area's and systems along the way as well. A lot of focus has gone into providing features for leagues, but I would like to move forward with visual updates first, as the league pages are starting to look dated.
I am glad to say since posting the 2000 member notice back in July of 2012. ileaguerace has almost doubled it's member base as we close in on almost 4000 register league racers!
I hope to have more information on upcoming features and improvements soon.
Our server will be going through a maintenance period on May 25th 2013 at 9:50PM Pacific Time. This should not last more than 1 hour. Most likely less. The server will be getting a core software update. The current server files will be migrated to a new box running the latest server software. This will make our server even faster, and even more reliable, as it will include latest spec Xeon Processors, and better memory management.
iLeagueRace has decreased our prices by roughly 25% accross the board! This new pricing is as a result of an overall decrease in our costs to make the service scaleable to increasing demand for the ileaguerace website and it's services. This means we can serve many more leagues for the same cost we already have. Which is great for anyone using iLeaguerace as it means you save as well! Thanks to all of our current leagues that have supported iLeagueRace we hope to have more exicting things in 2013!
