Hi Dave,
      But could we have a field which dates the particular entries, please?
      Have you considered requesting an annual update from all members? Something like 'have you checked you entry recently and are there any changes / amendments, please'? Some of the information seems to be quite old and in need of some attention.

Hi  Chris and group
   Yes Entry Dates,   that has been started after suggestions to me from John Lahr
last week. the Entry/ Update date will be in brackets to the left of the  member
    when I find some time I will go back through at least some of the recent (last ~
couple of years and take some entry dates from when I received emails from
people when they wanted to be added.  I have saved a good number of those

Yes I usually do an annual  update request and have done so for the last 5+ years
and apart from that, the keeners members send me updates even without my
request  :)
    Unfortunately that doesn't help with members who have "passed away"  or
others who have  just left the seismology game and havent told me to delete them
from the list.  I'm sure there are prob. upwards of 6 stations that could be deleted
What do I do ?  email the 120 odd people directly and see if they respond ??
a time consuming job.  How long do I wait for a reply before deciding if they no
longer exist or just havent bothered to respond, before I delete them myself.  ??

maybe I just have no choice and need to do that   :)

In general the data is reasonably accurate. Particularly when related to the ~ 25%
of  really active stations ... the keen ones :)

some thoughts
