• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

In the Florida database, there have been recent updates that have not been highlighted on the specific system pages. Pasco, Polk, Sarasota trunked systems and possibly others. It's very difficult to determine what info has been updated in large systems when highlighting is not used.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

This has been brought up many times. Sometimes a change of a spelling error, alpha tag, frequency sort etc.. would make things go green and people freak out wondering what was changed.

If its something insignificant the admin can override the green highlight. It may have just been something like that.

This has just occurred with Lee County.
12 new updates were made on 2013-12-20 to the Lee County Public Safety system, but when you select the system, the color highlighting is NOT there. Makes it very difficult to tell what has been changed.
It is not that highlighting is there when it should not be, it is that there is no highlighting when it should be there.

It was me just fixing spelling mistakes or removing improper use of caps, too many spaces between words, etc. Winter house cleaning. If it was a major change I will make sure it highlights green. Didn't mean to worry you guys. Just trying to provide a clean and accurate product. Like others have stated, if I removed a space or period and it highlighted green, everyone would say nothing changed.
