We’ve expanded the Hall of Fame section of the website

We’ve updated the Hall of Fame section of the website to include details on how the Hall of Fame works, who the current nominees are, and included a web form for CSFFA members to nominate individuals for the CSFFA Hall of Fame.

Reminder: while the Hall of Fame pages are publicly accessible, the submission form to nominate someone to the Hall of Fame requires you to be logged in to the website.

Website updated! Display issues fixed.

We were having some difficulties caused by overly long weblinks which impacted some display areas, most notably the nominations drop down lists as well the areas showing what people had nominated.

We’ve updated the site to accommodate this and all of those issues should now be resolved.

Apologies for the confusion this caused and special thanks to the members who emailed us and let us know so we could fix it.

While there was definitely some confusion in what was (and was not) being displayed, any actual selections made by members went through properly.  Please do feel free to take a look at your nominations and let us know if anything looks amiss, but we’re pretty confident everything in the back-end was functioning correctly and no one’s nominations were mangled (although in a few cases they did *look* a bit mangled before this was resolved).

If you have any questions about this, or anything else, please contact us and let us know!

Happy nominating!
