The idea is fairly simple
Whenever you experience a delay in the publics, report it as a flux.fail.
By doing so, we'll keep each other in the loop and up-to-date, while maintaining an effective public incentive for the transportation providers to improve their reliability.
Together on time!
Invite your friends to join the flux. The more users reporting delays, the higher the overall coverage for all of us.
Privacy & Data-Protection
Publicly disclosing personal location and transportation data to a website on the internet doesn't come without drawbacks.
Frankly, flux.fail takes data-protection very serious. We take all measures necessary in order to make it as difficult as possible to correlate individual reports to any specific individuals.
flux.fail protects your personal data, simply by not collecting any of it. We're only interested in delays and don't even keep your cleartext e-mail address. To us you are a random cryptic ID.
Every reported delay is rewarded with a flux point. The more often a reported delay is acknowledged by other reporters, the more points the report is worth to each of its reporters. However, points are also good indicators for various other report qualities.
Follow the flux.fail delay-stream while new reports fly in. Use flux.fail as a travel assistent and circumvent your delays before running into them. Find better performing lines or even entire routes that will get you to your destination faster.
Play to win!
Earn points for reporting delays that happen to you anyway while using the real-time stream as a travel assistant to circumvent delays in the first place. What are you waiting for? Together on time.
