This project should be used as an example when teaching IT students in college.
It doesn't matter how well you've delivered the first 95% of the work.
If you fail to deliver the final 5% and treat the users with disdain, then your project will rightly be considered a failure.

Scotland's private sector (robbery priced) site can switch in new records on NYD every year. Have handed them their pieces of silver to get some a few early Januaries. Anyone with basic database development experience could work out how to do it

Wasn't it said that just one person is involved in transcription on the site? I'd love to sit him/her down with a pot of tea and say 'look, can I help you iron some wrinkles out or at least type irrup for ya please?'

We know they have the data for the years to be added, as it was there before - it should take minutes to re-add it.

Is that one person not just in relation to the correction of errors?

Wouldn't have thought there'd be a data protection issue as in the main we're talking about 19th century records for a jurisdiction that no longer exists.

One person is working on the submitted census corrections - different project.

There is one person managing this civil records project, as far as I know, but it's not his only job.

Thtat's John Grenham - I wasn't thinking of him.

But that one person surely isn't transcribing thousands of birth, marriage and death records? Wasn't that farmed out to India?

I don't actually know how many people, if any are working on transcriptions. Will see if I can find anything out through industry contacts.

Kanadams123, I think pedroeibar1 was speaking tongue-in-cheek as in.. they said November or thereabouts but didn't specify November of which year
