    Hey guys,

    I created a score keeper website for shotgun sports. I invite you to try it out. Keep track of all your shotgun sports scores, get charts, and other fun analysis. Looking for feedback.

    Thanks for the new program. What is the need for our email address other than user ID? I hate when i provide my email address and then end up receiving an endless supply of junk emails. Although my filter sorts most as spam, i don't like the point of receiving it. What will our email address be used for and who will have access to it?

    Your email is not shared to anybody. I will primarily use it to update you guys about once a month about the latest changes to the software.

    Btw, a FREE mobile version coming very soon. It will work on most smart phones.

    "a FREE mobile version coming very soon"

    Now we're talk'n. I have been wanting something like that for quite awhile. I hope it has a "Trap" specific program allowing me to add and monitor my scores and averages via my IPhone. I like the one provided here on this site. It's easy to use and keeps running averages.

    Yes, it will work for all forms of Trap shooting. Also you can use it to keep score during the round or just put in a final score.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Did I say thank you?

    With this, who needs the ATA? Now, we can register all the targets we want, and our scores are private.

    This can only get more people shooting. I just registered a round. Go ahead, Don, try to look it up.

    This is absolute serendipity. This very weekend, I thought that I would design this same product because it is so deeply needed. You beat me to it, and you have done so with an enviable product.

    Thank you for the notes section to designate the gun being shot. Can I sort my results by gun?

    Are you aware that you can build your own classifications? If you set break points based on reasonable standard deviations, a shooter can always know where he is in any discipline vis-a-vis the other shooters on ShotgunNet.

    A ShotgunNet ranking can quickly become as respected as an ATA ranking.

    Are you also aware that you can set your own competitions? I would set a match at a minimum of five shooters, and it could be shot at any range, with no ATA or state fees. You need someone from the tournament to act as Match Director who can input, but not view, scores. The Match Director could give the tournament a name like "Indy Shotgun Summer Blast." You also need to have a way for local shooters to be aware of upcoming tournaments. If IndyShotgun is holding a 50 bird ShotgunNet singles event at Brownsburg, it would be good if we could send a notice through ShotgunNet to all Indy-area shooters.

    Great site. I hope you have the foresight to recognize how powerful this could become.

    Spelling note, your home page has this typo: "post you score on your Facebook wall"

    This is good news. Are you going to release for Droid and Iphone alike?

    I remember there was a thread talking about this some time ago, but I forget who was going to do the programming.

    Nice

    Would be helpful to allow me to enter and track by event for tracking purposes. (singles, handicap, doubles)

    Well INDY, you managed to pi$$ on this thread too with your anti-ATA and change BS. I hope your proud. I bet this man is tickled to death the way you turned his new "Free Score Keeper" thread into your own personal do away with the ATA blog.

    How do you register targets without the ATA? What's to prevent a shooter from entering any score they want? To me this program is like writing your scores on your ATA average card. I see no advantage to it.

    IndyShotgun. Thanks for the ideas, I see where you're going with it. I am planning to marry this site with ShotgunShoot.com (not currently active), which will host tournament info. But that's down the road.

    Calkidd. Yes the app will be available for IPhone, IPad, Android, Blackberry, Palm WebOS and Windows Mobile. Also I added the club that you suggested. Thanks

    Iboh. I will be adding those events very soon. I know it's important to make the distinction. Thanks for the suggestion

    grntitan. Not here to overthrow any established entity. :)

    Here is my roadmap for the app:

    I plan to release new features every week. This is a roadmap:

    Equipment used (gun/gauge/chokes, shells, glasses)

    Competition fields (event name, class, place, concurrent, winnings, punches, registered?, costs)

    Mobile app - mainly used to keep score for all shotgun sports. It works in conjunction with the rest of the website

    Charts - better looking and with option of adding selecting/deselecting different data types (ie. temperature, gun, weather, competition vs practice etc.)

    Comparisons - between you/group of friends/your club/all shooters in the same class

    Reports - charts in table form

    Shoots, shoot results & shooter registration

    Eric, write whatever you want on your score card. It shouldn't matter to anyone if you want to lie to yourself.

    If the site is altered to allow tournaments, a Match Director will enter the scores, so there won't be an advantage to lying.

    A site like ShotgunNet can make every time you and four friends shoot 50 a tournament. This site, if earnestly used, can really increase the amount of registered shooting by making competitive shooting easy and accessible.

    So, grin, do you not like the site, now? LOL

    Registered where???? To a new website?? Your not pro Trap growth, your anti ATA. Tell us how starting a new Trap organization and attempting to pull memebers away from other organized Trap associations grows and benefits Trap and its growth?? Now the truth comes out. Your anti ATA and you said.

    "With this, who needs the ATA?"

    Are you not the same one preaching the Grand should be in Indy? Now you want to abandon the ATA? Change this Change that. Boy that will make the sport grow.


    "Now, we can register all the targets we want, and our scores are private."

    Who cares if they see your scores? What are you afraid of? Do you not think as people see you shooting they know your scores? Bid deal.

    You need to have your head examined. Really!!!

    "If the site is altered to allow tournaments"

    Now he wants to change your website you just offered for free. You can't leave anything alone. Go make your own site for your own Trap org. and do what you want with it.

    An app that would work on my Blackberry would be neat.

    It could eliminate the little paper card we carry and the app would not make errors in average calculations.

    Indy, most of what you posted makes no sense to ATA shooters. The averages that matter are what we shoot in competition. Why do they need to be "private"?

    I do see value in separating data bases for things like trying a new POI, LOP, new stock, new hold points. etc so that there is a record of things we try in practice to improve out scores.

    Shotgunshoot,

    Don't worry about grin. There are a few here who don't want to see any change, but most people here are always willing to look over a better mousetrap. His lack of imagination really holds him back. Where he sees a potentially handy site that he might occasionally use, I see a revolution. The ranges should love your site, since every range is now capable of holding a registered shoot, and they can sell more rounds.

    Regardless of your intentions, you stumbled onto the recipe for gunpowder. Congratulations. It's O.K. Get a little excited.

    Love your planned enhancements. Make sure that the SS.com results upload directly into SN.com. On SS.com, perhaps add a function for "find a match director near you"? Give some thought to having a scroll on SS.com congratulating users for tournament wins. On SN.com, maybe add a "gold star" button where shooters can brag about and get on the scroll for breaking their first straight of 25, 50, 75, 100, etc. Maybe have an auto-congratulate e-mail go out to a shooter when he or she moves up in to a new class or has a day well above average.

    Also think about what a great way your site is to bring all the shotgun sports under one roof. What a great way to get the Skeeters to shoot Trap, and vice-versa. Everyone will be going to your site to enter scores, so the cross-promotion possibilities between the sports is huge.

    Lastly, please make it a positive check to publish scores to FB. Don't want to have to remember to uncheck that button.
