This is an advance notice of a new feature that will be introduced within the next couple of days. The feature is called "Spottings".
.
1. Any time you see a train ANYWHERE - while railfanning, while travelling in a train, while visiting a station, seeing someone off, receiving someone, while your train is halted at a station, while another train is overtaking/crossing your train - you will be able to simply input the Train Number and instantly post it.
.
2. This will immediately update the Delay Status of that train, its current location, whether it is standing at a station or between two stations, crossing status, etc. on the site, along with the name of the member as the source of info. (the location of the train will be derived from your gps).
.
3. All trains will have a "Last Spotted" at the top of the Train page, providing
a. Last spotted location and time.
b. Name of member as source of info.
c. Time of update.
d. Delay status of the train.
e. Comparison of the member delay status with the Official delay status.
.
4. If members post Spottings while on a Trip, with their current train number, then their current train's status will be continuously posted at the top of the Train Page. If they spot other trains crossings/overtakings, etc. then those trains' status will also be updated, along with XO status.
.
5. The Forum section will have a separate "Spottings" menu item, detailing all Train Spottings. The alert section will also have a Spottings item.
.
6. ONLY the train number has to be entered for quick posting. However, optionally, you may take a pic, write a note, etc. just like with regular blogs.
.
7. Member statistics will have a separate Spottings section giving total spotting numbers, as well as spottings per train. If the same Train/Station is seen again and again on multiple days, then that member will get priority for updating info on that particular train (in the revised upcoming TLM scheme).
.
The Spottings feature will be a core part of the upcoming RailFan app. However, tomorrow, the "Spottings" feature will be available on the site.
Thanks.

IRI is worse sorting filtering feature in table I have ever seen in now a days website in past few years
e.g.
you can select in train page filter either passenger or express or emu/dmu but not pair of them
you can short based on timetable change in recent time but sorting is not proper
you can see cancelled train in train list
you cant filter based on timetable change attribute e.g. old time table or speed up
you dont have pagination on train page so if you have to see all train list click to load 50 more and on and on and on and after sometime it will break because every browser has some memory
wherever pagination is there in textbox if you change value after filter applied it will reset filter.
and this is not something I am reporting for first time but those are forever existing issues.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...

    This is regarding the appointment of Monitors. For TLMs, we require a minimum of 1000 Confirmed TLs. For FMs, we require members to promise to abide by the guidelines and be free of controversies. For other Monitors, we require the member to be in good standing. . However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

PNR Predictions by members can be seen by ALL, before and after Charting. New members often look towards our expert predictors for hints, and we are reinstanting that. . 2. To better...

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...
