I like the sound of that. We're gonna make him an offer he can't refuse...

Well, you better have quite a few bucks ready for that. Hosting a wiki takes surprisingly much bandwith, and that won't be cheap to buy.

One of my many involvements in the internet world is being the other admin of Grand Prix Rejects (the successor site of F1 Rejects). Besides the main site and forum we also have a MediaWiki to store data and results from the many virtual racing championships hosted on the forum. Our hosting fees are $26.67/month, but the other admin also does a lot of technical work most people would just prefer to pay the webhost for. An all-inclusive package would probably be much more expensive.

Thanks Nuppiz! Well i'm working on getting rich part (no guarantee!) but not in that position yet, so in the meantime we can just use the forum as a pseudo-wiki, which is often what forums end up being, for better or worse! Not much of an update from me today. My significant other is selfishly consuming my time but it's for a good cause and may help with that getting rich part. I'm currently just piecing together some stuff for F1 Manager Pro that's been on the backburner for years and I should probably publicise before it's lost forever. Hoping to work on something substantial over the next month with GPW.

Well since my last update, I've managed to put some good hours into reworking some of the hacking code I wrote years ago and that's allowed me to better organise the driver and staff data in the game. As a result, I have now implemented the ability to edit all F1 and Non-F1 drivers and chiefs. You will notice that there are now tabs inside tabs inside tabs, to break up these grids into subject areas and so that we dont have an entire scrollable row of tabs across the top. Before the first version of the editor is ready for download, there are little bits and pieces to finish off and I plan to dedicate a tab to adjusting teams' chassis handling percentages that are decided at the start of the game (if I can find them!). Sponsors will have to come later...
