New Route section Format?
« on: April 03, 2011, 02:34:04 PM »
Hey Al, have you ever thought about changing the route section to something more like what mountainproject has or a wiki format? I think it might get more action if people were more easily able to add information or update old entries themselves. As it is now, we have to write something up in an email, in a format that you then transfer into the database, or make a posting that later gets buried in the message board, and leave it to you to dig out and translate the info. That seems kind of inefficient. You might be able to make it so people earn various levels of editing privileges. I would like to contribute more information, but I just find the MP format much more flexible and I can slowly work on adding things and go back and edit as I have time. That site also allows putting photos in more easily and in larger sizes.

I too need a larger space for pix  ;)  I think a comment space or such for the routes would be cool, maybe even a tick section.

OK...good ideas. I'll give it some consideration. the deal is that I wrote this site from scratch, it's not a kit. so any changes mean that I have to code them. but I do think that letting people add comments to the Routes is a good idea. not sure about letting folks add their own routes & areas tho. that's a big programming effort.

I see how that might be a lot of work then. Don't worry about it. Not being tech savvy, I pictured the route section being kind of like a site within a site, so thought you might be able to use some ready made architecture.

Al, speaking of,,, A couple of people have been looking at the Captain stuff and I noticed some typos (prolly my fault) if you get a chance-

no pins are needed, a few small cams only , tiny

On P1 you go RIGHT to the belay.

All ascents that I know of say 11a

ps there is also a new route just L 5.9 (5.7R) that is 6 pitches, Captain Jameson, By jon garlough

thanks

Al, you are welcome to use any of the information and pictures I have posted on MP about Green's and Owl's Cliff. Cut and paste or paraphrase what ever works for this site if you wish (like directions)
