Juvenile Rides List

Recommended Posts

Dear All

The idea of a list of Juvenile Rides has been raised several times by members, and I am looking into putting something together (I MUST BE MAD!)

However, as I will be doing the inputting, the list will, out of necessity, be limited in it's aims and implementation.

I've put some thought into this and, initially, it will be subject to the following limitations:-

1) It will be hosted off the forum in an online database that all members will be able to access shortly (I'm still in the learning phase of using the software)

2) It will be limited to UK, Travelling Juveniles owned by Showmen (Guild & Independent), that appear at Travelling Funfairs (Steam Rallies etc included) - I'm not being pedantic here, I just want to exclude Juveniles that private individuals have in their back gardens and take to the odd boot fair

3) YOU, the members, will be responsible for supplying the information. I have neither the time, the inclination or the expertise to research this myself

4) It is not intended to be definitive list of every travelling juvenile - while I will aim to get as much in as possible, the quality of the records is far more important than the quantity

5) I reserve the right to withdraw the feature if there is insufficient interest or it becomes too complex (with "why isn't xx listed when yy is?" etc)

I am prepared to make a start, but YOU must supply the information!

Because of the risks of misidentifying Juveniles, initially the following conditions will apply to submissions for the list:-

* You must supply a photo, taken by yourself

* You must supply the name of the owner and you must know that information from your own personal knowledge

(I'm trying to avoid people trawling this site or the internet for photos and names and introducing errors at this early stage)

The fields I currently have in the database are:-

Ride Type **

Owner First Name **

Owner Surname **

Date Acquired

Manufacturer

Previous Owners

Photo **

Photo Details (Where/When taken) **

Photo Taken By **

(Fields marked ** must be completed)

I am willing to amend the fields if you think there is something vital to list, but please bear in mind this is intended to be a simple list - the more complicated it is, the more chance of errors and the more likely it is to fail.

The success or failure of this project is down to YOU, THE MEMBERS. If, as previous experience has shown, that members want a feature, but are unwilling to help it will fail :(

To submit a ride for inclusion you can:-

1) Reply to this post

2) Send me a private message

3) Email me at bill@fun-fairs.co.uk

Please include as a MINIMUM Ride Type, Owner Name, Photo & Photo details

Regards

Bill

I Applaud you for attempting this, this is a mammoth task and could possible be a can of worms due to the fact these change hands in there own family, let alone being sold on to another showmen, the list if we are not careful could soon be out of date, it is very difficult to keep up to date with these type of equipment

I think you need to define what is a juvenile - please don't try to include Inflatables

just a Suggestion to get us started, but perhaps the list should start of with the bigger Juveniles Like, Double Deck Formula's / Race o Rama's / Planes (Jamie Whiting new ones) / Juvenile Dodgem Tracks and see how it goes (just a thought)

Good Luck with the list and lets hope members support it , if it can be done and is kept up to date it could be a useful resource

If you need a hand with any inputting just give a shout

I was thinking along the same lines - a Juvenile is any RIDE that isn't listed on the main Rides List - that would not include inflatables - needs to be a RIDE. Swings etc, would not be included (at least not initially)

I would like to start with the bigger, more prominent Juveniles, but they would be quite difficult to define

If I get snowed under, I would appreciate a hand - you would need access to the Microsoft Team Site (the software I am still learning and where the Database will reside). To access it you need an invitation from me and a Microsoft login (Live or Outlook email or be prepared to register). It isn't me with these restrictions - it's Microsoft :(

Would it not be better to have a list of different types of juveniles. Eg toyset, chairs tea cups. And in each section have a picture of each make of that type of ride. This would not mean listing every ride traveling (I personally don't think anybody can keep up to date with current ownership of everything)

I appreciate it is only 48 hours since posting this and that we are all busy, but despite this topic having 130 views, just 5 people have "Liked" the post, just 1 has replied and supported it and ZERO Juveniles have been submitted for inclusion.

I suspected that this was a feature that members wanted, but weren't prepared to support - if early indications are correct, I was right :(

I'll supply you with everything travelling the northern section just a case of when I can devote some time to it. It's more an out of season thing when you're looking for things to do

Bill,

I can't speak for everyone else but I spend a lot of time on the forum each and sometimes the 'Forum Help' section just gets missed as its right at the bottom and often I've spent so much time looking at the other post! I am certain there is a lot of enthusiasm for this. I will certainly put together what I can.

Many thanks for your efforts!

Dan

Bear with me Bill I have plenty of info to include when I get the time. I posted the other day about how i need to sit down and do my bit for the forum but seems like i never get a minute. No doubt once we hit the winter months i will find myself with nothing to do! I hope this takes off as i think it'll be very useful and interesting.

Bill, you are brave to take this on! I didn't think I'd see the day when you begin a Juveniles section. :DBut let's try it and see how it goes.

Now, I don't want to create even more work for you, but, do you want transport with each Juvenile too? The reason I ask, is that I have a few Juvenile pics and I tend to try and get the transport as well if possible, so I do have Juveniles and their respective transport. Also, some Juveniles have decent, good-looking loads!

I Don't think this is a good idea, as a lot of Juveniles are move by Pick ups / Vans or even put on the back of other loads depending on were they are going, ok some may have dedicated transport but it would be imposable to keep up with this, we struggle with the main ride Transport list let alone Juveniles, lets just try and keep to the Juvenile themselves

Whilst I appreciate the suggestion, Gary is right, let's concentrate on getting a few Juvenile's in the database first. We can always think about adding transport/load photos later.

Bill would you rather I post them in dribs and drabs in this topic or via PM? Just thinking that putting it on here means other members can see and point out any possible mistakes or changes. It puts me in the firing line rather than you. All information was given to me in good faith and was correct at the time of receiving it.

DISCLAIMER: ALL INFO WAS GIVEN TO ME IN GOOD FAITH AND CORRECT AT TIME OF RECEIVING IT. If you think anything is incorrect then please post and let me know. I never take a stab in the dark when it comes to ownership. If any info is incorrect then this may have been a recent change or the info i was given was incorrect - i'd like to think not as i always find a good source at grounds to ask. Any info on juveniles further from the eastern counties may have been supplied by other forum members in good faith. If i'm going to get abuse for posting wrong information then i won't bother.

I know next to nothing about manufacturers so any info will be gratefully received.

These are simply in order that i came across them this year and not because of any particular preference.

Hi Bill,

Just a thought, but I believe Dan has a valid point. Looking at your Home Page where all the different forums are listed I also think that important forum notices or information should be right at the top of the main page before anything else perhaps hi-lighted in a panel or something, just to get everyone's attention before they start trawling through other sections. That would certainly be picked up by more members perhaps.

Cheers

Chris.
