Introductory Access to Livelox Multiple Tracks Expires
You may have noticed you can no longer see other people's routes on Livelox. The introductory offer of free access to tracks other than your own has expired. Livelox now requires a personal subscription to see more than one track at a time. There are negotiations taking place at the Orienteering Australia level for more favourable access, preferably on a group basis. So maybe hold out for the time being on taking out a personal subscription but keep uploading your tracks to review your performances.
OKnow Magazine no longer in Publication & a Word from Boris
You may have noticed our online magazine OKnow has not been published for some time. Although well received by many, each 30 page plus issue was quite a chunk for some to digest online as well as being a lot of work to format for editor Martin Bicevskis. Some important information was not always getting thought to orienteers. Consequently it has been decided that OKnow will not continue rather this e-bulletin and our web site will be augmented and more in depth articles published. There will also be more regular features to help volunteers and event organisers, particularly videos. And the occasional one off publications to make use of the multimedia format available with the Indesign program.
