Wildlife photography especially is effective at stretching newcomers to the outdoors beyond climbing and running.2 votes
Thanks for the suggestion. As a nonprofit and volunteer-led organization, all content is contributed on a volunteer basis and is a reflection of the interests and expertise of our membership. We do not currently have a wildlife specific photography group, however we do have an active photography committee which shares regular blogs about their trips. We also feature wildlife photography in a number of the books published by Mountaineers Books. If you’re interested in learning more, please contact the photography committee (https://www.mountaineers.org/locations-lodges/seattle-branch/committees/seattle-photography-committee) or you can volunteer to contribute your own wildlife photography content here: https://www.mountaineers.org/mountaineer-magazine/contribute).
For the Mountaineers website when logging in there used to be a feature to check a check box that says "Remember Me" which would keep you logged in. Now that feature is no longer there and I keep getting logged out of the website, and have to keep logging back in which is a bit of an inconvenience and annoyance.
Can the Mountaineers add that feature back to the login so I can stay logged in and I'll have to keep logging in every time I visit the website?1 vote
Look at the results of this search: https://www.mountaineers.org/search#SearchableText=behavior&path=%2Fabout%2Fvision-leadership%2Fboard-of-directors%2Fboard-policies
Every single result is a link to a page that contains nothing but a PDF. This is lousy for SEO, which means you likely don't find what you're after using a search engine and it's also a lousy mobile experience. Extract the text from the PDFs and put it on the web page. Even badly formatted text is better than "only available in this PDF."1 vote
An RSS feed is an easy way to allow readers to learn of and read blog entries without visiting the site. As it is, I don't remember to visit the site and check the blog often enough. My online reading is almost entirely through RSS feeds to the new sites and magazines I follow. Building an RSS feed is straightforward, does not have to display in the user interface, and requires no maintenance.1 vote
This page has confused me a few times. The Seattle Park Department does not manage reservations. It would be nice to have updated information about the south wall here.
Open public use?
Any reservation system?
Check for exclusive reservations, where?
Goat Peak above Mazama had Ptarmigan in the 1980s when I used to lead cross-country helicopter assisted ski tours. The single nature article in the winter issue of the Mountaineer Magazine, which I get online so it's hard to read, requested this feedback. As a retired national park ranger-naturalist and heli-ski guide, of course I appreciate almost any nature content, and encourage more.1 voteCompleted · AdminJeff Bowman (Associate Director of Information Technology, The Mountaineers) responded
Thank you for your support of the ptarmigan and citizen science efforts. While directly working with scientists is outside of the scope of our mission, we are happy to promote these efforts when possible. For that reason we published the ptarmigan citizen science article in our Winter 2020 issue of Mountaineer. That article was also turned into a blog which now lives on our website: https://www.mountaineers.org/blog/citizen-science-white-tailed-ptarmigan-ghost-birds-of-the-winter-cascades. A link to the blog is cross posted in our Virtual Education Center as well to continue to encourage people to engage: https://www.mountaineers.org/courses/virtual-education-center#conservation-advocacy.
We'd like to explore options for giving committee members the ability to self-administer org-wide award badges. Currently the only volunteers who directly manage badge rosters are branch admins for their award badges. That said, we have some award badges that are org-wide and we'll have to think about how we might allow a group of volunteers to manage that.
Example is the Climb Leader Emeritus badge: https://www.mountaineers.org/membership/badges/leader-badges/climb-leader-emeritus0 votes
