Totally insignificant and probably matters only to me but...

Postby Bubba Suess » Sat Nov 17, 2012 1:58 pm

It has always bothered me that the sidebar on the left side of objects pages places canyons down at the bottom rather than near the top, under the mountain pages. It would make since to me to place all the geologic features together, follows by routes and then all the ancillary, more subjective items like trip reports and albums below that. The Wichita Mountains is a good example of what I am talking about. The Narrows is one of the most significant climbing areas in the range, but it is ignominiously tucked in under the nearly worthless album collection. This just does not make sense.

I do not know if this is something the Elves can change and I doubt it really matters to anyone else besides order freaks like myself. Still, I figured it was worth sending this gripe out into the void...

Never noticed it until mentioned here, but your point is logical. I'd vote a +1 on this one.

The owners are on a mission to make this site stagnant. Good luck.

Unfortunately, it isn't, but it's a good idea and you can add me to the list of people thinking this would be a good change.


Bummer.

Alas. Much as I love Summitpost, I think the obsolescence snowball is heading downhill. I wish there was a way to arrest it. Does anyone know what changed after the launch of V2 that caused the owners to be so hands off?

It's is easy to fix and do some simple things to show SP will grow and develop. The owners are being proactive about stopping that though.

I don't see the site as stagnant, but it seems difficult to navigate. The underlying premises for many aspects of the site are hard to understand. There are 1000s of sites that have message boards, chat rooms, articles, members, etc. Some of them are thriving.

I reckon I ought to bump this one while changes are being made to Summitpost.
