Weekly News #30

Yesterday, the first patch was released. Today, Le Tour de France starts. It's perfect timing, isn't it? While you're waiting for the start of the prologue, here's the Weekly News in its 30th edition.

Submit your cycling photos

In the coming weeks, some of you will be able to watch a Tour de France stage. If you decide to bring along your digital camera we would really like to see your photos. Therefore, we have created a new photo album to which you can submit your photos.
You are of course very welcome to post any other photos you have taken if you want to - we'd like them all! ;)

You can view the submitted pictures here:
(Currently, there's of course no pictures, but they will hopefully come eventually)

You can submit your photos here:

On-going Site Events
If you're very quick you might be able to sign up for JustinWK's GT (TdF) Game. In that game, you have to choose 12 riders and for each stage, your team will be given points for its performance. You can read much more about it here: http://www.pcmdaily.com/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=17&thread_id=585
But remember, you have to sign up NOW since Le Tour starts in a few hours ;)

Our crew member, Crommy, has also started a game -- it's a Treasure Hunt! Basically, you will be given a hint, and afterwards you will have to figure out the answer before you're given a new hint. The first to find the answer for the third hint wins. So if you're a real pirate, try out his game here:

Several new stories have also been started. Crew-member SportingNonsence, who has written a lot of PCM06 stories, has now started his first PCM07 story. It's a story about Tour of Britain, and Mark Cavendish is of course also participating ;) You can read it here:

Setzel has started a career as a manager of T-Mobile. He's already at Giro 'd Italia, so you better hury up before it's over ;)

The German Patch
Due to some extra protection in the German CD-version a seperate patch is needed for the German version. It still hasn't been released, but according to the publisher, it should be released today. But since it's Saturday, it's unlikely that Cyanide will release it today. It's much more likely that it will be released in the beginning of next week (Monday or Tuesday).

PPDB 2007 V2 to be released soon
The PPDB team has been working on a new version of its 2007 DB (for PCM06) ever since the first version was released. Several bugs have been fixed, and in one of the coming days, the second version should be released. As always, there's no "official" date, but we'll keep you updated.

PCM.daily searches crew - again
Back in March, we searched for crew and found some competent people. Since then, we developed and to keep up the standards - maybe even raise them - we are now searching for even more new people. We don't have any requirements except that we expect you to be good at English and that you're interested in doing some work. It's not a really time-consuming job, but we expect you to be around ;) The "job" is (of course) unpaid.

The crew will be divided into groups:

Download Database Updaters - this job is about updating the download database with the newest files. This requires you to have knowledge about FTP uploading and a basic knowledge of how linking works. It's not that difficult, but you won't get this job unless I know you and have some trust in you ;) Who knows - you might end up deleting the entire database ;)

News Spies - this job is simply about gathering news from other communities such as the French, Dutch and German ones. If the news are worth writing a seperate news article that's also needed, but otherwise reporting the news to me is enough.

Event Manager - we always want to be creative and innovative, and therefore we need a person to focus solely on starting new events at this site.

Article Writers - currently, we don't have enough people to write all the articles we would have liked to. Therefore, we are searching for people with knowledge about cycling and / or PCM who wants to write a new article for us once in a while.

If you are interested in any of the above jobs, send me a PM with your application. Write which job you're interested in and why we should choose you. Thank you!
