Copy email to self (checkbox)


Is it going to be possible to respond to emails?

Also, several countries are still missing from the drop down.

Other than that, I have no comments other than to keep everything simple.

Do you happen to know the missing countries? Once listed I can put them in the tracker.


There are more, but off the top of my head French Polynesia. Also, Trinidad and Tobago appears as Trinida.

When I have time I could go through the list and come up with whatever else is missing.

One other thing I thought of:

I don't know if it's a good idea to spray a bunch of beta on too many caves. I hope this doesn't cause some debate, but personally I'd advise against it.

Search
•work with mtn, mountain, peak (interchangeably)


Also should ignore Nevado, etc. These terms should also be ignored in alphabetizing lists.

Josh-

If you show editors on the page then the issue with Admins being able to hijack pages goes away. The only difference between editors and admins is the latter is shown on the page and can change privileges. Fix it so editors can be displayed and then the owners can just make folks editors.

I agree. Ditch the Plans and Partners as it is just a distraction. The forums are available now.

Also on the page histories. Would be good that the last version by any owner is permanently saved. Not the last three versions by whoever they happened to be done by.

One minor quirk that might need fixing:

If a post has a poll in it, it doesn't show up on the front page like the other post. Personally, I find some of the polls interesting.

Page Admins Should not be able to hijack pages


Can't understand why anyone would make someone an admin if they didn't trust them not to hijack.

In the same area though - How about returning the possibility of co-ownership. My wife and I work collaboratively on many pages but under the current system one of us must be the "owner" and the other an admin in order for both names to show on the page. Points should also be shared by co-owners.

I've once suggested this to distribute points...

Sole owner: 100%
Owner and admin: 67/33
Owner and two admins: 50/25/25
Owner and three admins: 40/20/20/20
Owner and four admins: 33/17/17/17/17

Basically just count the owner as double what an admin has. The idea here being to make it a small enough impact so that the owner shouldn't care about this (assuming they do to start with), but enough so that someone won't have issue with being a lowly admin.

And perhaps editors could have edit rights, display on the page, and no percentage of the points. If both admins and editors are maintained then there should be some difference or usefulness for the distinction.

We should definitely not use polls in the forums to determine opinion on site development matters. Anything we can do to further engage people and get more ideas is great. But polls are more likely to get an over representation of people who read the forums and not the larger quantity of members who look solely at site content.
