FIOFAFI – Further Developments

Mon 3 November 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

There have been further developments since early September 2008:

  • The venue for Monday nights in the Bukit Timah area is now The Premier Pitch instead of Bukit Timah campus.
  • Our first Bukit Timah regulars v East Coast/Kallang regulars on Deepavali ended in a hard fought victory for the latter.  If there is sufficient interest, such matches can be a regular feature on public holidays or occasionally at the weekend.
  • I understand Tom has e-mailed several of you with a questionnaire, the answers to which have been or will be posted on the blog as player profiles.  He will be e-mailing the questionnaire to everyone in due course.  The “Social Etc” category has been broadened to a “People” category to incorporate these profiles.
  • Ian pointed out to me that the age profile of the participants was difficult to find under the “E-Mails” page.  Accordingly, I have moved E-Mails page to become a sub-page under “The Blog Etc”, and replaced the E-Mails page by “Participants”.  I have also moved the “FIOFAFIer Age Profile” from a sub-page under “About FIOFAFI” to a sub-page under Participants.  The “Other Activities” page has also been moved to become a sub-page under “The Blog Etc”.

In October, the number of page views per month exceeded 4,000 for the first time ever – 4,330 to be exact.

The number of page views per week dipped dramatically 5 weeks ago, with the start of the crisis in the financial markets. However, the number of page views has recovered quickly – in any event, much faster than the markets and the economy – with, for the first time ever, numbers exceeding 1,000 for two consecutive weeks, and reaching an all-time high of 1,235 last week.

    Reza, unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), FIOFAFI numbers are measured in terms of participants and page views, not dollars and cents.

    As Tom’s “Meet The Player, Meet The Man” feature has resumed (with Gilbert and Bobby), unless anyone has any objections, I’ll provide him with everyone’s e-mail addresses so that, if he wants to continue, he can put his questionnaire to the rest of you. As has been said on the various versions of the Contact List and Participant List since last year:

    Your e-mail address and contact number may be shared with the other participants in a session or for any other purposes related to this blog.

    Tom, I’ll send the you all the e-mail addresses later.

    If you’re going to continue with two a week, I suggest you schedule them for Wednesday morning and Saturday morning (instead of Tuesday and Friday). If you’re doing only one in the week, then Wednesday. I’ll e-mail you later.
