Tracking EUR-notes on EBT, but also CHF, GBP, SEK-notes...

Postby LArdennais » Thu Aug 28, 2014 1:59 pm

Why not ? ;)

Hi all,

A famous :flag-fr: EBTer has suggest me an idea - that I have first spoken about into the last BoD-A2E Meeting : you can introduce into EBT notes which come from European currencies other than EUR.

In a first step, as proof, it can be possible to introduce CHF and GBP-notes. If the experience is concluant, you can also later introduce other European currencies like DKK, NOK, SEK...

From a technical point of view, the servers are highly big to store these new entries. And, in the filling form, you can choose the currency before inputting your notes.

So : what do you think of that ? :)

Thanks in advance for your remarks, suggestions, etc...

Just a small remark as a fellow Board of Directors member. Your posting gives the impression that this idea has been approved by the BoD, even though this idea has not even been discussed, let alone approved in a board meeting. It has been on the agenda, but the discussion of that agenda point has been postponed to a later BoD meeting due to time constraints. The Development WG has not commented on the idea at all, as far as I'm aware.

Besides, the route for any new ideas should be "you > the appropriate working group > BoD (if the working group feels it'd be necessary)", not "you > BoD > the appropriate working group". This would save a bit of bureaucracy, and consequently, speed up the process.

Yes, this is indeed the correct subforum for site development issues, that's why I moved this topic here. You should have started your topic here in the first place.

I do support the idea of tracking other types of banknotes, whilst using the already existing interface on eurobilltracker.com

I have always believed that we could read the name of the website as EUROpean Bills tracking...

I guess there is nothing to lose for the website and its community.

We can only gain from having new trackers. Imagine all the Brits, Sweeds, Swiss, Polish that could track their currencies. When these people will come in Euro-countries, they will track Euros, too.

These people could also be already available for EBT, at the moment their country will switch over to Euro.

Also, imagine that a country would leave the euro-zone, will that mean that the current users will no longer be able to track their currencies.

The new series of :note-5: show that the website can host series of bills that will never cross link. What happens with the new series, show what can be done with GBP, CHF and other Zlotys... :mrgreen:

Sorry avij but this (potential) project is more than a "single development issue" : it could touch, if this becomes effective, ALL EBters from ALL :flag-eu: (not only €€€-zone !) AND more : ANY person who don't live into €€€-zone will entry his "own" notes - from his "own" currency - first, €€€-notes in a 2nd time ! :D

BTW, please read this very pertinent remark - in :flag-fr: language :

Beaucoup de suggestions pour améliorer le site ont été apportées par les EBTers, et cela depuis des années, mais rien ne bouge. Non pas que le site ne me satisfait plus, mais il mériterait un bon coup de jeune (notamment sur les statistiques, la formulation "billet enregistré" qui est insupportable en cas de disette de hit...)

Je ne sais plus dans quel sujet nous avions évoqué tout cela, mais je pense qu'avant de se disperser avec d'autres monnaies, il faudrait tout d'abord penser à améliorer notre bon vieux site qui est vraiment perfectible...


Traduction :
Hi ! I think that before opening EBT-website to other currencies, it would first think to improve EBT only from EUR-currency.

A huge pack of suggestions to improve the site have been brought by EBTers, for years, but nothing happens. The site doesn't satisfy me (= sebatchev) ? No, of course, but a serious "refresh" (i.e. statistics, the terms "bill registered" not appropriate when you have no Hit with...) should be done.

I didn't know in which thread we have spoken about that, but I think that before spreading (and playing) with other currencies, it would first think to improve seriously our "very old" site which is really perfectible...

For me, I think it is a good idea!

I don't believe we'll gain only one new user that way , sorry ; only new zloty, km, kuna, lei, kruna, users playing their own stuff in their contry (those moneys never cross borders besides exchange offices)

I think it is a good idea, but only useful if achieved in a systematic way. We should create an EBT-extension of all the currencies of EU states that do not adopt Euro (if we want in addition also those of non-EU countries such as Switzerland): in this way it would an overall idea of money circulation across the EU system, regardless of the currency used.
