  1. Reclassify Snowshoe Routes and Trips Using New S/T Rating System ~WebsiteContent

    This posting is the result of 1) a few years of cross-branch discussions among the Snowshoe Programs of the various branches, and 2) email discussions with the Program Center about how to go about changing the rating system used to classify Snowshoe trips. The feedback we received from the Program Center was that the correct way to document our request for changing the website was to post the changed to feedback.mountaineers.org.

    The Snowshoe Programs of the various branches would like to change the way that Snowshoe Routes and Trips are rated so that each route/trip has a separate Strenuous and…

    The website project needed to implement the new snowshoe S/T trip ratings is scheduled for work this spring/summer with the intent to be ready for the next season.

    We will need to provide new inputs for the revised snowshoe trip ratings, and your recommendations based on recently led or traveled trips is appreciated! We have created a Google spreadsheet to collect input. Please take a moment to share your recent insights on snowshoe trip routes.

  2. Submitting feedback should be a two step process GH2757/2758/3608

    When submitting feedback for an event there should be a two-step process - after entering the information and clicking a button - but before submitting for good - a "view" page should show how the feedback will eventually appear, warn the user that once submitted the feedback can't be changed, and allow the user to go back and edit some more. This is pretty standard for feedback and survey forms.

  3. Improve Route/Place Summary (aka Search Results) View GH3574

    Given that our Routes & Places have grown to support a wider set of options and variations, and that they support both land and marine activities, it would be better to display the entire summary and remove the detailed info at right column in the summary (aka search results) view of a route/place. See the attached mock-up.

  4. Clarify language for profile management when adding family member GH3554

    We've received a number of calls lately from folks who have a family membership. They go to add an adult family member, but get stuck when they are required to select whether 'I will manage the account for the youth' or 'the youth will manage their own profile, but I will sign their waiver and manage their account.' It is confusing that they have to choose one of these options when they are not adding a youth family member to their account.

    I think changing the language to something like these two options would suffice to reduce confusion:
    -This is…

  5. Improve My Profile Preferences View GH3064/3573/3534

    Improve how a member’s preferences are displayed on the bottom of their My Profile page and to minimize confusion on where and how to change (edit) them.

    Notes:
    - Don't show checkboxes or data entry boxes with their “values,” because it makes them look editable.
    - Remove help text, so that essentially only the field labels and their values are displayed and so that the view is more compact.
    - Some of the “answers” will need to be “calculated” to make the view more user-friendly.
    - Move items on the Profile Edit Form to match the My Preferences view (both…

  6. Migrate Files to "The Cloud" ~IT-Infrastructure

    We have internal systems we can move to a cloud platform: 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.
