FAQ

This FAQ will explain some things you might need to better search and read results from the database. Use the comment form to ask any questions.

HOW TO SEARCH THE DATABASE

This is where you will be able to search the database of skating results. This is more than likely an interim system so that people can get back to using Skatabase. Here are some pointers:

  • The bottom right has a drop down list of the skating disciplines. Dance is the default. If you want to search any other discipline, choose that first.
  • Choose like in the search for a better chance of getting results
  • In the results, clicking the table headers will list the results in the order of that header. For instance, clicking the YEAR header in the results will list the results by year.
  • If searching for pair and dance teams, use *both* members of the team, the woman's name first. You can use LIKE instead of EXACT if you only have the name of one of the members of the team.
