Dear members of our community,

Today we promoted the old Multiblind results to new Multiblind results, if they are compliant with the new regulations.

We used the following design principles:
1) we want all old results that are valid according to the new regulations to be listed in the new category
2) we do not want to change the results of past competitions
3) we do not want results to appear double in past competitions
4) we only want old results to appear on the Competition page, not on the other pages
5) we want to keep old and new regional records

From a technical point of view:
a) We copied all valid old results (eventId=333mbo) to new results (eventId=333mbf). So these valid results are now in the database twice.
b) We changed the software accordingly to the design principles.

Thanks to Clément Gallet for his help in creating this solution.

If you find any problems, then please let me know.

Have fun,

Ron
