General Feedback

The UserVoice Feedback forum enables Mountaineers to share ideas and exchange feedback with other Mountaineers. You may follow any forum idea and you will be notified of comments or status changes to that idea. All forum participants get ten votes to assign to ideas, and your votes help us prioritize the needs most important to our members. We receive lots of great feedback, so please search the forum first before creating a new idea. If your idea is not yet in our forum, please post it with a simple title and explanation.

  1. Feature Request - Expiring Badge Notification

    As a user I would like to be notified prior to my badge expiring so that
    I can arrange to meet requirements or arrange for an extension given that I have a badge that has an expiration date. The problem to avoid is people losing their privileges without notice and being unpleasantly surprised.

    Then, when the expiration date is within 90 and 30 days from expiring:

    - A notification of what badge is about to expire and when will be sent to me (User) 90 days and 30 days prior to the expiration date.

    - A notification will be sent…

  2. Redesign Website Header and Sitemap, and Integrate mountaineersbooks.org with mountaineers.org SD579

    Redesign our website header so it is better for mid-size mobile devices and re-organize our site map so that it better includes features we've added since launch (e.g. selling books, find volunteers, lodges), etc. This will involve UX design and some graphic design work.

    Add "Locations" to the top level and move Branches, Outdoor Centers and Program Centers there.

    Selling eBooks, ability to use promo codes currently in use on mountaineersbooks.org (e.g. buy one get one free) and content migration (pages, blogs, calendars, etc.) are the key considerations. Integrating our two websites will eliminate confusion of where to purchase books,…

  3. Need better lighting outside the Seattle Program Center

    It's pretty dark on winter night events with a high number of car/pedestrian interfaces from significant parking on the west side of a very busy street, and lots of people activity at the Mountaineers and near by venues. A couple of strategically placed street lights would help a lot. Would probably also help reduce car break in's at the park to have better lighting.

    We are approaching this from several different angles.

    1. I am working with Diana Kinkaid, former Board member of Seattle Parks, to submit an application for a grant to fund design of safe pedestrian & automobile travel in the park. If the grant funds are secured Seattle DOT and Parks will develop a plan. Then there would be a subsequent process to gain funds to implement the design. This is a multi-year project.
    2. The Friction Slab project includes funds to construct an enclosure around the garbage and recycling containers in the south parking lot. A corner pole of the enclosure will be installed substantially higher than the others and lights will be installed at the top of this pole, improving lighting in the south parking lot. The Friction Slab project is on pause while we work through transitioning from one contractor to another contractor. Once beyond this pause, we…

  4. Add ability to adjust map zoom level on location tab GH2513

    Map zoom level is not saved during the editing process for an activity/course/etc. The displayed map defaults to a specific zoom level that centered on the location pin.

    It would be helpful to be able to set the level of zoom without making the user use the +/- button.

    We are working on fixing Routes & Places that should have their GPS Start and End points farther apart, so the zoom is correct based on having two points displayed on the map.

    We add a tech ticket that will allow us to reset the GPS End Point to “0, 0” so that zoom is correctly determined based on having only one point to display on the map. Prioritizing this ticket is TBD.

  5. When an activity is pushed to a future date make sure feedback emails also update to the future date GH2281

    Right now if a climb is scheduled for May 1 and you have to move it to May 8 because of weather the feedback email is still sent out on May 2, the day after the original start date.

    We’re working obtaining an addition to our email marketing system that will allow us better schedule these kinds of time-dependent emails.

    It will take some time, though/ We hop to have this complete by late summer or early fall 2017.

  6. SEO Improvements

    We engaged Portent, Inc. to review our website from an SEO (Search Engine Optimization, e.g. Google) perspective. They gave us a set of recommendations that involve both technical and content improvements to our website. Overall, this is likely a large project, but will likely be many very small projects that we can accomplish with our monthly support over time.

  7. Migrate Email and Files to “The Cloud”

    We have three internal systems we can move to a cloud platform: email, office apps & files (apps, documents, spreadsheets, presentations), and graphic design apps & files (e.g. Adobe Creative Suite). Note that we already have photo storage in SmugMug and on website and video storage in Vimeo and YouTube.
