Improving J2Ski

How can we improve J2Ski ?

  1. Add a Trip Planner

    Allow a user to record upcoming trips. These could (optionally) be made visible to other J2Skiers to help plan meetings and share instructors, transfers, etc.

    • Allow Forum Search on Title only

      Hi Admin.

      With the search function would it be possible to add an option to search just the Thread title?
      For example if i search a resort name i get a list of all messages where the name is mentioned but it may not really be relevant. If we search just the thread title it will obviously return more appropriate info.

      Thanks

      • Buddy Lists - and Invite a friend

        Let me create a list of friends; like the Facebook friend finder. Could have multiple lists for people going skiing together, etc.

        • User Points / Badges / Awards - J2Skier of the Week?

          We'd like to recognise, in an informal way, the great contributions some of our more active users make to the wealth of knowledge now on J2Ski. We're thinking users could accumulate "j2ski points" for doing things like posting reviews, and when other users "star" their contributions, when they invite friends to join J2Ski and so on. Using the points accumulated, we could have "J2Skier of the week/month/winter" and have "achievement badges" (like a Blue Peter Badge but not made of plastic) shown on forum profiles. Good idea?

            • Locking old forum posts

              Should Admin "lock" old forum threads after a certain length of time to prevent people from adding to a discussion that was relevant several years ago but is now stale? It's a bit irritating to click on a new reply only to discover the original post was years ago and is not relevant any more.

                Thanks Alison. We agree, and we’re looking at an approach that will do something like lock threads after – say – a year inactive, but give the option of starting a new thread on the same subject if desired.

              • Let me set some favourite ski areas without getting snow mail!

                To save me scrolling through 600 resorts when I go somewhere new... let me set-up some favourite places.

                • Stop slide shows on the forum pages.

                  While trying to read through all this great content on the site, there are these constant and very irritating thumbnail slideshows besides and below the main content on the site. These are mostly for webcams, I think. Is there away to turn these off? You had a changing background image to the last time I looked at this site (way before joining) and it looks like that has been stopped too, thankfully. How can I turn these slideshows off?
