 Well when Stable C joined

the line would be something like

Sold To Stable C for $0

(That would by default

mean he was a starter horse)

Am I understanding correctly??

Yes I see now about the

breeders line...not the same. :)


I think that if $0 dollars shows up in any of the

lines there would have to be an understanding that it didn't mean he was given away but

either a starter horse, or part of a stable quiting.

 Oh okay wait, with the info

you gave me this is how it would look in my idea.

Born at Stable A
Sold to Stable B
Sold

To FF
Sold To Stable C
SoldTo Stable D
Sold To FF
Sold To Stable E

I didn't put in

dates cause that would take to long for now. :) I think that this feature would be used more

to see where the horse has been and for how long than to use as a value reference.  Obviously

a starter horse won't cost anything and a stable quitting isn't going to "sell" the horse

to FF.....What do you think?

 No, since when a stable gets

deleted their budget does as well.

So the actual thing that would show up on the horse's

page would be:
Bred by Stable A 1/1/06
Sold to FF 6/1/06
Sold to Stable C 1/1/07
Sold to

FF 1/1/08
Sold to Stable E 8/1/08

 Also, regardless of

if/when/how this works out, prices would not be shown.  It's no one's business but the

buyer & the seller what the horse sold for.

 Oh okay...see I know nothing

about coding as you can tell. ;)  Why is it that if the stables budget is deleted that the

name will not be able to appear on the history page?  And since there won't be any prices on

the page anyway...oh man...lol. Do I just know too little? ;)

 Because the only way to

track who buys/sells a horse is with the budget transaction items.  If new stables buy/sell a

horse and quit, then there is no transaction to use.

 Well it does cause then you

loose a whole place the horse has been.  If a horse is at Stable C for 4 years then quits

those 4 years are lost.  See Jason. ;)But yes I see now...is there anyway around that??

 No.  At least none that we

care to implement at this point.  Holly, it's a cool idea, but drop it, wouldja?

 As Andrea said,

no.  It is a cool feature, it was already considered before you

brought it up, Holly, and the reason that it hasn't been implemented to date is that it

would be a major undertaking to keep track of in the database.  It might happen in the far

distant future, but until then, don't hold your breath, and please stop posting about how it

should be easy to do.

 When you want to bring it

up, give yourself the choice between it and jockeys/possibly graphics for racing next year...

and workouts... I'd much rather Shanthi coded for that then any other nifty feature.  And I

can't/won't do nifty features that involve changing DB organization w/o Shanthi's express

approval.

 Sorry...was just trying to

help...I just wanted to discuss and talk with you guys about it...my intentions were not to

annoy you.  I didn't think it was easy or thought it would be. Again sorry.

is discussion.  Seems

like myself, Andrea, and Jason have all said "this would be cool, but will also be really

hard/time-consuming, so end of discussion until/unless it actually gets implemented", and yet

you continue to ask when it will happen and why it hasn't already happened.

    You know, wouldn't it be

cool if we had little contests. Like who designs the best web pages. Like for the webpages,

everybody would be given lets say 2 yearlings, 2 twoyear olds and so on, and one stud.

Everybody would be given the same horses and they would have to design a webpage that is

clean and neat, easy to read, and pretty to look at. Whoevers webpage matches those

requirements best, wins!
