To anyone who has already downloaded VolleyWrite (either on Windows or the iPad)

Because of the new security settings on the license key website, you will NOT be able to extend your license (successfully) using the Extend License button on the Welcome tab unless you have the latest software!!

For the iPad, you need to have build 4.2.2 or later. The problem is that when you use the Extend License button (on the Welcome tab) with an older build, you do not get an error message, so you don’t know that the transaction was not successful.

For Windows, you need to have release 4.4.0 or later. If you attempt to install a new key in an older version of the software, VolleyWrite will not be able to connect with the website containing the keys and you will see an error message (no matter how hard you try!!)

If you have any questions, please e-mail us at Info@VolleyWrite.com or call us at (513) 400-5937.

Thank you for scoring with VolleyWrite!

iPad version of VolleyWrite waiting for review

The updated versions of VolleyWrite for the iPad have been submitted to the App store and are waiting for Apple’s approval. The new versions (4.2.2) work with the updated license website, and the changes are transparent to users. Thank you so much for your patience with this! – And thank you for scoring with VolleyWrite!

Important Information about Release 4.4.0

If you are currently using VolleyWrite version 4.1.4, you will not be able to enter a new key to extend your license without installing version 4.4.0.

If you do install version 4.4.0, any remaining time on a key generated before January 15, 2019 will be lost.  Please contact us if you need to recover the time on a key.  Our database does have the activation date for your key, so we can provide an interim key.

Thank you all for your patience while we worked hard to get to this point!!

And thank you for scoring with VolleyWrite!

VolleyWrite Software Update – Please read!

The security settings for VolleyWrite.com are in the process of being upgraded, requiring a new release of VolleyWrite.

After January 18, when you open VolleyWrite and your computer has internet access, you will be notified that a new version is available. You will have two options:
1. You can ignore that message and continue to score with the version on your computer until your current license expires, or
2. You can allow the new version to download.  NOTE: In this special case, you will have to enter a new key when the new version is installed. (Normally the key transfers to subsequent versions without the need for re-installation.)
Before you install the new version, if you would like a key for the remainder of your license, please contact me at Info@VolleyWrite.com. Once you have the new key, you can install the latest software and enter the new key. Then you can score as you normally do.  (The activation date for your key is in my database along with the duration of the license…)
I apologize for this inconvenience! As an internet-based business, I have to do everything I can to secure my customers’ data and the products they purchase. I really appreciate your patience and understanding!

VolleyWrite – a first at the CHSAA volleyball tournament

Logo for the Colorado High School Activities AssociationThis year marked the first time the state of Colorado used VolleyWrite to score its state tournament.  The CHSAA held their tournament on Nov. 8, 9 and 20 at the Denver Coliseum.  The floor had 5 courts set up (one for each division), so there was a lot going on!!

We’re looking forward to helping out again next year!

VolleyWrite Scorer Challenge – Context Assist/Answer

Are you curious about the lineup from the last post?

If so, here’s the lineup sheet with the lineups for all three sets in the match to help you out.  (Yes, the team name has been removed to “protect the innocent”!)

NCAA 3 lineups

 

As it turns out, the starting players for set 1 were 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23, 3 and L1.  The starting players for set 2 were 8, 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23 and L1.  The starting players for set 3 were 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23, 3 and L1.  If you got them all correct, you’re really good!!!

Lineups like this example make scoring both fun and challenging!  🙂

VolleyWrite scorers – take the challenge!!

I had the opportunity to use VolleyWrite to score a DI NCAA Women’s volleyball match recently, and I had an interesting experience.  Try your luck at reading this lineup!!   It’s quite a challenge!

Unfortunately, the lineup was submitted late and it was so hard to read!!  Oh the joys of keeping score!!

Look for the next post to get a hint and the answer!!
