Remaking the VGCW document; Old one is a year out of date

So the VGCW document, found at http://doc.vgcw.net hasn't been updated since Bryn left. This is a shame because the doc made finding matches much easier. You could ctrl+f and do a quick search to find all of a wrestler's matches in a heartbeat, instead of having to either roll through the youtube page or the best MotN poll threads. The thing about the doc v. the wiki is that the doc is theoretically easier to maintain but that requires actually letting people update it and it was kinda locked down. The other issue is that, in hindsight, a text document was a bad way of handling it. Rude Semprini, as part of his efforts to write the wrasslers' seasonal review made this spread-sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1HWMKsB08MYnWajTFrPWAOl-lTqOhIdLbpOsQxPiBf1o/edit#gid=1824008054 and I feel like that's the perfect way of handling it.

A google spreadsheet is easy to edit, read and navigate. It can have multiple sheets for each season, as well as a "master" sheet. You can even actually add BWA shit in its own sheets so it all works out.

So is this a good idea and if yes do we have any volunteers to maintain the damn thing? Aside from me.


EDIT:

New doc is real: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10ysbaLL_o9Dq_c6hjSSksRTo-y3hgDNEOlyw_VJsGQY/edit#gid=1381538597

I've said this on the Discord a couple times, but I had the thought of adding synopses of the episodes on my archive docs, but then I realised A) it'd be too cluttered, and B) it'd make my docs a hell of a lot longer and slower to load. So I stopped that thought pretty much dead. This seems like a great idea Strangelove!

Moved this to WV Discussion so it would be a bit more visable.

Also, I’m willing to help maintain the spreadsheet. It’s basically something I ought to be doing anyway.

If I could make one suggestion: maybe make the result of the match a Note so that if someone sees a match they really want to watch, they don't instantly see the result. That and the result collumn's so small, you can't fit most people's full name anyways.

Here's what I got:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10ysbaLL_o9Dq_c6hjSSksRTo-y3hgDNEOlyw_VJsGQY/edit?usp=sharing

It's still unfinished, I need to finish the WVGCW Season 10 summery sheet. Also the Genesis 1 summery sheet. And start the BWA summery sheet. And finish the BWA Standings. Also I'm very tempted to remove the entrance music from the standings sheet.

And thank you Rude for doing most of the work for the WVGCW S10 summery. If you want to be an editor then PM me either here or on discord. And if you have any suggestions for formatting, say them here and I'll see about it.

I just requested access. Do you think I could help you out with at least BWA?
