May
22nd

Well after an intense 2 days we announced that our search function was up and ready. Perhaps we spoke to soon though. It was never going to be perfect but it was at least something. Not every picture shows the plate, but there were over 800 logged car registration plates from across the UK that could be found.

Just before going to bed last night though something terrible happened. On updating our wordpress plug-ins, it became clear that whatever “updated” actually worsened the sites function. You see a lot of the posts come from Twitter, and images that are #selfishparker cane appear on our site. What happened though was instead of the images from the tweet appearing on the site, the actual image of the twitter’er did. Not good. Imagine our annoyance at nearly 12am to see a bunch of oversized avatars of ours appear down the site.

We fear not though, Authorselvi, the original developers that helped bring this idea together are now on the case and should have it fixed soon.

So, in the mean time what is our next plan….well even as I write I have to think that it will be quite cool. Our plan is to have an on going chart of the most selfish parkers out there by:
- Car Make
- Colour
- Year
- Location

This task will take a few days, and with a holiday planned next week, might be even longer, but hopefully will be worth it!

Thanks for reading and keep those images coming in.

PS. Big shout out to Roger Soles who has been posting some great pics on here of disabled bay abusers – shame on you!
