The problem isn't manual entry on CRG's end.  We've got a large chunk of that automated - could do even more if the front-end wasn't a problem.  The problem is that data submissions 1) have to be typed by the human that is submitting the data - and that produces a lot of errors that can only be eliminated manually, and 2) the data itself has to be manually checked for reasonable validity to avoid corrupting our database with bad data, or to avoid losing odd (but correct) data that doesn't fit "norms".  Takes a ton of time.  I started the database, and early on took a couple of spells at being a data inputter, and it is truly draining.  Kurt (and now Daniel) have been carrying a heavy load for a number of years.  Truth is that there is no shortage of data.  Given their time available they have been focusing on data of high interest.  The database now contains about 1.5% of all the first-gens built, and given that most of those built are long gone, the number of recrods probably represents something like 15% - 30% of those that remain.

OK - the attempt to import the previous accounts didn't work on first go - the email addresses didn't get pulled in correctly and this system doesn't allow anything if the email addresses aren't valid.  If the email address wasn't correct then it wouldn't let you modify your account.  And you couldn't create re-register under that name because the account was there - in theory (though non-functional).  So rather than attempt the import again I just decided to delete all 3500+ old accounts.

So now you can register under your name of choice.

I will update the CRG Forum link to note this, but meantime please notify people via post on Team Camaro, as well as any of your buddies that might be interested, that the new CRG Forum is now accepting new registrants.
