Gordy, can we add RT and Trap speed? Put trap after 1/4, and RT first. So it'll go RT, 0-60, 1/8, 1/4, and trap. What do we want to order them by? Fastest trap, or fastest 1/4?

We can order from top to bottom in this fashion: Red, White, Black, Purple, and finally Green.

Seriously though, I vote for ordering them by 1/4 time.

I think just ordering them in the order you get keeps the trolls at bay...

Order them by 1/4 mile, and if there is a tie order it by trap speed for the tie. (Like if one runs 15.15 @ 92.55 and another runs 15.15 @ 92.80 the 15.15 @ 92.80 would go first)

Is there anyway we can just post a whole timeslip, instead of doing RT (which doesn't matter AT ALL btw unless braket racing) and 0-60 and 1/8 & 1/8 speed and 1/4 & 1/4 speed why don't we just put a whole slip on there. RT, 60', 330', 660' & speed, 1000', and 1320' & speed, and 0-60 as well if you like. Giving half timeslips is kinda stupid IMO, when you can take another 30 seconds and fill in the whole thing.

I suppose we post the most important pieces of information on the page, then if you have a timeslip the "Timeslip" word could be a link to a picture of the actual timeslip.
