As someone who does help update a TV pres website its not the easiest thing to do, even with three other people doing other stuff! Some people may not fully understand all the ins and outs. Sometimes, you cant do everything at once, because you have to beta test stuff first, ( no point changing a load of stuff and then having to re-update down the line) But TV Ark does have some basic problems,
Its running on old tech:
One of the first thing I was told while at college etc is you need to future proof stuff. Its gets to the point where things start to break down, or you cant update or new formats are useless to yourself, while old formats also become useless. Its not like Nasa where its running on windows dot just because its works- of course it never changed. Its also useful for back ups. Why do you think companies always have those yearly away days to make sure its back ups are running properly? One single character in piece of code and that it Game over, you have to fix that to get something working, and its a right pain in the back side as anyone working with code will tell you......
Harder to update
I have been told a few times, the site not the easiest to update. For that reason there are a number of errors on the site, Not to say TV ark hasn't tried to update, there had managed to correct a number of mistakes and realigned some sections to bring into to line with other pres site on the web. Its one thing were, we should all be singing off the same hymn sheet.
Because of the above this makes this part a little more challenging, Its like the horse and cart, why update if back office function will get changed thus you might need to re-add details etc. In some cases time needs to be spent wisely.. With the correct date - Not to worry there do have a nearly upto date list, it partly out of date because: http://tvforum.uk/tvhome/date-pres-38322/page-63
is always being updated, Its never ending.
It Federal system
This is the other sticking point. If you haven't notice most of the site is like the old ITV, with each person dealing with one section. That means if one person doesn't have time to deal with their section then nothing really can get done. It also hasn't help two of its founder members have sadly past away. I'm not sure if there roles were ever filled. I think TV ark should ask for some extra help, Im sure people would be willing to help out. I've learned you should never be scared to ask for help, no matter what its the end goal that matters.
I think that was partly be solved by TV ark interactive,
