Thanks for watching my back.
I do want to say, however, that I take great pride in being able to say that Lottery Post has some of the best, quickest results out there. I get seriously disturbed when things don't go right and there is a delay in posting the results. I have no problem with people have a high level of expectation for timely and accurate results.
The thing I take issue with is a complaint that ignores the facts. Tenaj, I love you to death, but it really gets to me that you would state that the results have been delayed after the Daily Numbers page was created. There are a couple of reasons why I have a problem with that:
- The Daily Numbers page is just another way to show the results. It is completely unrelated to the speed or accuracy of the results.
- The speed and accuracy has constantly improved over time, rather than getting worse. If they were getting worse I would be the first person to say so, because I am very hard on myself when it comes to that kind of thing.
- I have not seen any complaints from anyone about the results not being posted in a timely manner. So for a comment to be posted which says that there has been a long-running issue that was never reported in the first place is unfair. If you have a problem, report it. Frankly, I don't think there is a problem, and the big reaction to the results were a bit late one evening shows that it is not something people are accustomed to. They are used to timely and accurate results.
I want Lottery Post to be the first and only place people need to go for lottery results. I think I have achieved that to a high degree, but I am constantly in search of ways to make it better.
I hope that by defending this site like I did above that people don't feel that they can't be open about reporting a problem.
By all means, anyone who has an issue of any type -- big or small -- please report it.
