Really enjoyed watching this one. Max was very honest and open about every topic. Russian accent is still scary to me, I wouldn't mess about with Max and his Top 10 :D

I also enjoyed this episode very much. Didn't think that it will come so soon after Max was not within the top picks at the oscars :-D Thanx for that Jun

But I feel I also have to correct at least one thing here :-D @Maxim Kotov (P23)

I know, my memory isn't always the best (sometimes I even don't know in the evening what I had for breakfast), but in this case I have a very clear memory. I am just missing the start point, what I wanted to hear in the podcast :-P

I wrote this little side game already for another F1 management game, the blacklisted one :-) When I search with the wayback machine for it, I can find a first snapshot for December 2003. But when the shit hit the fan in that blacklisted game, I modified it a bit so that certain managers got excluded and finally some time later I shut it down.

After I joined GPRO in Beta Season 4 also as a beta tester (no admin yet), I offered Vlad also Max's Top 10 as a side game and I just updated of course the design and implemented an easy login. I think at that point I asked Max whether he has any objection against using this name.

But where does the game (and also the name) originally come from? As Max mentioned, he played from 1996 on F1Live. So did I. And this little game also had a small (compared to GPRO) but fantastic community. They also liked to create side games. And one was Max's Top 10. You can still see it here: https://web.archive.org/web/19991004085900/http://f1live.com...

I just copied the idea from here without any further instructions from Max. But for me it was always improtant that it is visible, that the credits belong to Max.

I would more like to know, how it was invented at the very first time and how did Max calculate and update the page? With Excel and did he update the page himself? Or someone else?

But I can't remember who had the idea for the cup. After a little research I found out that I've implemented the cup over one year after Max retired. Okay, I know I am lazy... but I can't really tell whether I postponed the implementation really one year or not... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I want to apologize for inaccuracy when trying to remember all the facts from the past, Steff!
I'm sure you have more clear view about how and when it all happened :)
Sometimes we have some blackouts in our memory for certain events occured long long time ago. So if I messed up with something, I'm sorry and I didn't mean to be selfish.
Glad you enjoyed the podcast, although it turned out to be very long and personally I should have made it shorter, it's my fault that I was speaking too slowly and also repeated several times the same topic. :)
Maybe Jun should have cropped out some unimportant sections to make it shorter...

P. S. Now I remember, that GPRO Cup format came from the same unofficial Cup used in F1 Live where it was named after Sergi (I think we discussed the idea together with him, that's why I thought it was my idea also). :)

No need to apologize (as I suffer also from bad memory :-D ) and there is nothing selfish in it. As you are not a programmer, I am sure you didn't do that page on your own but you proposed it at one time to someone. It was just not me :-D

Not for me. I could have listen longer :-)

Oh, yeah, that could be possible indeed. I just found also this kind of cup there: https://web.archive.org/web/20001008135143/http://f1live.com...

I have now a picture in my mind for one episode of the podcast: some old dinos sitting together and talk about the gold old days of F1-Management-Games and what all happend. And somehow that reminded me on this:

Also @Maxim Kotov (P23), I've just realised that after our Valorant chat where you said that Russian players do not have voice chat, apparently they just released voice chat to the Russian players now! :)

Yeah, but the first hour of the episode will be a monologue as he can hardly chat about F1Live, F1Gold, F1Pro... but it might get funny at least once we get to talk about the blacklisted game... :-D
