Weekly News #43
NewsAfter a delay of the Weekly News, we are now back. I was getting tired of posting the Weekly News in the middle of the week since it was only confusing. Therefore, we are now back at posting the news at the end of the week, preferably on Sundays. Sorry about the delay - I'm sure you've been eagerly waiting for it ;)

2008 stages
With the 2007 season as good as done the first 2008 stages for PCM are beginning to be make its way. The community is working very hard at the Tour de France, which always takes a long time to do, but already now a few new stages and stage races have been released. In our DL-section, you will find the 08-editions of Tour Down Under and the Tour Down Under Classic, the World Championship in Varese and the Tour of Wellington.
A few more will probably be released in near future, and when that happens they will of course also be added to the download section.

So, all we need now is a 2008 database. Get started, DB-makers!

More editing tips
As you may have noticed, we have used a lot of time and space on making DB-editing easier for you. Our Articles-section is filled with articles about editing, and throughout the last week two new articles were added. One of them were submitted by our member, mrlol, who used the "Submit Article"-link in the Navigation Menu. It's not used a lot, but if you, as an ordinary member, writes a good article that you think PCM.daily maybe can use, feel more than welcome to add your article through that link. It may be published. In fact, I think most articles will.

Anyway, about the articles. Mrlol's article tells you how you change your sponsor goals, either making them more difficult or, more likely, easier. You can read it here. Addy returned from his holiday this week today, and he immediately began helping the members with their editing problems. That also resulted in one article, explaining how to add a new team. Enjoy!

Dankan leaves PCM-Spain
Surprisingly, PCM-Spain's famous member, Dankan, the main leader of the PCM Spain DB-project, has left the site and also quit his job as an "adviser". This also means that there'll be no more updates to the PCM Spain DB. Dankan said that the old atmosphere was gone, the respect was gone, and that only a few guys were actually positive - things which all made it sad to be at PCM Spain's forums.
This doesn't mean the end of projects by Dankan, though. He has said that he's very interested in keeping on working. Time will tell what projects he'll dig into.

Beta of the All-Time Historical DB
StephenRoche from the Italian forum has released a so-called All-Time Historical DB. It contains teams and riders from 1894 (yes, 18, not 19) up until today. It's still in the beta-phase and contains a few bugs here and there (so don't start a career), but the beta gives a good overview of what to expect. I mean, Merckx vs. Coppi vs. Armstrong vs. many other old stars -- could it get any better? I don't think so. Download the beta here or wait for the final version which is released in the beginning of November. Keep your eyes on the DL-section! :)

Rasmu89's DB added to the DL-section
While PCM.daily had its main focus on PCM06 I critized Rasmu89's DBs a lot for being very buggy and requiring more patches than PCM itself. Now (or, well, a while ago) he released a DB for PCM07 -- and you know what? Only one patch has been released since. So, it could seem like Rasmu89 finally got better at DB-editing :P
You can download the rather large DB here and the patch here.

Speaking of Rasmu89. After Michael Rasmussen's Tour de France performance (:P), he has decided to change his nickname to Evans89. This, of course, also means that he had to make a new DB. As far as I can read (everything is in French, of course) it will be released in one week's time.

PCM Road Tournament
One of our members (whom I have already mentioned earlier), mrlol, has started a so-called PCM Road Tournament. Basically, it's an online PCM tournament for the members of PCM.daily. You register for a team and meet up at fixed times to play some classics or a stage race. You're given points for your results, and at the end of the season the unofficial PCM.daily PCM07 Champion is celebrated ;)
You can read everything about it here. It's 18 pages, but .. well, give it a try ;)
