Current fight optional challenge

Post by Sober »

Unless I'm missing it somewhere, I can't find the optional challenge for the current fight on the front page nor on currentsong.php. Obviously we can find that in the review thread etc., but for random visitors it would be nice for them to understand why every song has distorted timpani or whatever.

I think in some thread, somewhere, someone (current fightmaster?) mentioned that that information was never archived. It's only listed on the front page at the time of the current fight, or like you said, in the review thread.

Ah. Wonder if there's a barrier to implementing this going forward? A couple hours of review thread skimming could yield an xls of titles and optional challenges. I'd be willing to volunteer for that portion if the implementation part was possible.

It's right there on the homepage ... of the Jukebox! :)

http://www.sfjukebox.org/

But yeah, the official archive data set has no place for storing optional challenges other than with the "next fight" data. If you'd like to sponsor having that functionality added, please send $200 to my Venmo. :lol:

I've been asking about an official SF venmo/patreon etc. too. That should be a thing!

See "Documenting the optional challenge," a few items down in the current forum (Complaints and Suggestions).
