      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

What Do you Want to See?

Recommended Posts

in your ideal world of spray, what would you like to see?

 

Our current bbs software vendor/package is getting a bit stale, and support/product updates are sparse so I'm looking around a bit.

 

I'm sure many of you out there frequent numerous other message boards, and i'm curious what you like, and what features you think we could really use here on cc.com.

 

I realize there are a few things that have already been pointed out:

-Better Search Facility

-Chat

-Faster

-Perhaps a better picture gallery solution

 

A few things I have been toying with are:

-RSS feeds

-Donation Integration

 

Anyhow, y'all being the users of this site, I want to hear what you would like. It still blows my mind that this place has grown so much in the past (is it 4 years now?) few years, and I want to make sure you sprayers are happy.

 

Thanks

timmy

The biggest issue for me is the pictures. I think it's a real shame that all the pictures in all of the old trip reports are screwed up. People put a lot of time and energy into making those TRs, and they are the best feature of this site, so I'd make that a priority.

 

I don't really have a right to complain since I haven't donated any money (though I will when I get a job), but that's my biggest complaint.

 

Thanks and Cheers!

I liked being able to see the "last 25 posts" regardless of category, function. That way, I can respond to the current topics and even have a sort of chat with a couple members of the board.

 

Thanks

One thing that had bugged me on a number of occasions is, when viewing others' gallery images and I've wanted to send one of them a PM, if I click on their name below the image it takes me to a stats page for that person, but does not provide a link to send a PM to them. This means I have to look elsewhere for that person's profile page. It would be nice if their profile page came up or at least a "Send a PM" link was supplied.

i think it would be cool if the "add pictures from my gallery" worked for all posts not just for trip reports. cool.gif

Test for attachments.

Edit:

Okay, two things I noticed about attachments:

1. The pasted jpeg in the post now gets squished, causing loss of readability of text. This is lame. Why does an image get compressed now? Note that you can get around the compression problem by manually pasting the image the old way as I have done here. However, the compressed version still shows up at the bottom of the photo.

2. It isn't possible to have an attachment w/o having it also appear at the bottom of the post. It would be nice to have the option of pasting or not pasting it in the post.

I know it would not be all good, but can we load the old software that we had before?

right now:

*About every 3rd thread won't load for me

*My preview balloon doesn't work with this new software (means I don't read half as much stuff as I used to)

* Doesn't remeber me on my log in

* Plus cc is WAY slower than before

People I've talked to at the crags lately have said they are experiencing all the same things as me so it isn't my computer or me.

You guys do a great job. Let's just write this up as a mistake and go back to the old software.

Thanks for giving us CC it is a great resource!

This is now the default behaviour again, the attachment does not appear in the post, and you will have to edit the url into an image tag if you want to have it show up.

I whould like to see a link section for anything Northwest and climbing related. Gear, gyms, route information.

 

It whould also be cool to check current wheather and possibly wheather forcasts from here.

One minor thing that I'd like is that:

 

When you create a new thread or post in an existing thread, that thread should be automatically toggled as a "Favorite Topic!" and you should receive emails on it. (Instead of having to toggle it manualy). Small quibble I know, but it would increase the ease of use of this site immensely for me.

Only if it is an option we can make default or not in our prefs...

I'll suggest that feature to the developers of the software we are migrating to.

Yes, no auto "favorite topic" unless one explicitely asks for it. In the same vein, it would be nice to have a "My Active Threads" view that returns all the threads that one has posted to (within a time limit) that got some other responses.

 

What software are you migrating to?

The new software has a subscription option when you make your post, with no email updates, instant, daily, and weekly update options.

 

The Private Messaging system allows you to message more then one person at a time and allows you to attach files and images and have polls.

i like this suggestion. thumbs_up.gif having a personally modifiable front page would be awesome - although perhaps not very feasible ... something like the home page but with more options for the things you're watching or want to watch that makes it easy to review those threads (like active topics). cantfocus.gif does that make any sense?
