If there is the demand for new kit I will coordinate a new order via LG.  Delivery takes up to 3 months, I will do what I can to hurry things through so with a bit of luck we should have the kit late June/early July.

- I have put a rough guide to prices, I will contact LG and confirm.
- We need to reach a minimum of 16 units to order any item.
- Initially we'll stick to the key items but LG also do cycling tops, jackets etc.  If you want anything like this add it to the list and we'll order once we reach 16 units.
- Sizing, LG kit comes up on the small side, suggest you find someone a similar size to you who has LG kit and get their advice, or post on the thread and im sure people will try their best to advise you.
- I'll confirm the order/payment process in a few days but ill be keeping it simple.

Oh and there maybe inport duty, tax and postage to add.  Ill come up with some as close to poss estimates in the next week.  Put your name down, if the price is prohibitive you can always take it off.

JD/Donald - Is there some sexy open source widgets we can rig up on the pirate website (some list/survey functionality) that can keep track of the orders/quantities better than this rubbish RW forum software ? Even a spreadsheet on googledocs that peeps can add details to, and we can track ordered/paid/delivered status ?

(Does it show that I'm a IT management type in real life, and therefore have lots of *really* cool ideas that need other actually talented people to magically implement ? I'll do the gannt chart, business case, powerpoint slides and make the virtual coffees though if it helps)

Barley I much preferred the LG kit.  Do you know what material they'll use though?  I love the old-style down-stripes version rather than the 'dotty' material they used on the second order.

I could do with a Monaco.

Kanga, there have been some offers of sexing up the order process but its not rocket science!  Im going to just try and keep things simple.

Nam, ill try and find out, I vaguely remember they made some changes to the material at some point?
20/03/2010 at 10:47

Nam - I know what you mean, I doubtt they'll go backwards - if you get my drift?

Kanga, yes there is a way of providing a fairly simple way of collecting the order information. The psof forum allows you to set up and have a poll. This allows people to "vote" for different options and you can allow each person as many "votes" as you like. That person oncethey have voted can also change thier votes.

So if each option was a piece of kit, someone could "vote" for the bits of kit they want. If they change thier mind they can change this when ever they want. This would immediatly give the numbers of each bit of kit.

However, for someone to easily find out who wanted which bit of kit, rather than simply quantly of each will require some changes to the code. This can be done (there are variouse changes already published) but it will probably be a few days before I could do this.

If there are not too many types/sizes of kit each option could include the size. i.e.

Tri Shorts (S)
Tri Shorts (M)
Tri Shorts (L)
Tri Shorts(XL)

e.t.c. but this might make the poll rather long... The alternative would be to work out the sizes later.

Don't know if this would help?

Me too

I think that was the only quality gripe with LG.

Could do Donald, just thinking the easier and more automated the process the easier it would be to manage, check quantities etc, and likely to get re-used for all the pirate bling we keep dreaming up. I also have an abiding dislike of lists & XLS spreadsheets when fully blown web enabled data base backed ecommerce solution can be implemented

Lets see how things go, I dont really think we need a web enabled data base backed ecommerce solution to order 40,50,60 bits of kit.

We may need a robotical automated warehouse despatch carrier pidgeon transit thingy
