Home page updates:IBF and BC
Has anyone noticed how misleading the home page updates are of International Badminton and Badmintoncentral?
According to the active banner headlines of IBF, PG and XU are world No. 1s for MS and LS. Is this true? And PG is still gunning for the MO2006 title! How often are the latest info updated? As often as the creator's bias, it 's clear. Eg . the AJC champion was announced promptly ie South Korea, this was last week. but the IBF rankings were at least a month old.(Correct me if I'm wrong) There 's something very unprofessional about updates that reflect different time periods. It's misleading and insult the intelligence of the website visitors.
I have a lot of respect for BC except its IBF ranking details.What's the significance of May 2005 that it should be permanently displayed? If you don't have the resource to update MS and LS rankings regularly, eg weekly (like ATP) or monthly or after every major (4* or more) tourney, then have the courtesy to remove it instead of misleading members and undermining your credibility.
IMO, IBF MS and LS rankings should be updated after every major tournament or at least when there's a change in the World No. 1 in either the MS or LS.

I'm referring to the 'moving' banner headlines; the strip that suggests the latest news.

BTW, i think this post/thread should be posted in a different sub-forum...

Plus the fact that he is a badminton fanatic like most us means he's also working on his technique, meeting other badminton friends, watching badminton videos. He also has to sleep like the rest of us
Since BC/BF is a nonpaying website, that allows a lot of decision making to be kept within the webmaster's control. Thta's why he can juggle priorities as they come along. But the front page get less time than the other things, unfortunately.
Hope that explains a few things. And just to make clear, I am not the webmaster
