Jim

This web creation of yours has become such a vital source of up-to-date trail condition and access info. I've benefited from that aspect of it, so many times. It's also a rich repository of inspiring adventure reports and amazing outdoor photography.

Many thanks for bringing this together over the years.

Here's best wishes to the new overseers with anticipation of good things to come.

Looking forward to the changes. You might want to check the site feedback/suggestions for existing problems.
Me too. I'd also like to suggest improvement of report section which is by far the most popular part of the site. For instance we have a member that continuously rotates same 3 or 4 trips couple of times per week, and posts report each time. While most people -including myself- enjoy and appreciate constant condition update, this has bad side effect of saturating the board rapidly and thus causing other, unique reports to sink down very quickly and potentially not be seen.

On Alberta side there is fantastic "Alberta Conditions Update" thread for such purposes. It is very well received and members that hike known trails that are beaten to death and don't really require full blown TR use this to post quick update together with few photos. My suggestion would be to implement something similar in BC Report section. In other words constant Panorama Ridge/Black Tusk flow is great, but redirect to "BC Conditions Update" Thread.

I will have a look and see what can be done. I am hoping down the road we can move the site to a more robust software platform like vBulletin and ad a more feature rich experience for everyone. Site conversions are not an over night thing so no need to fear any big changes to anything on here happening other than me working to fulfill requests you all bring to our attention.

Hey Jim thank you very much for creating CT, it is valuable resource. I also thank you for recognizing outside help is required to keep it running smoothly. I imagine it is hard to give control of something you created out of nothing to someone else.

You do know that the AB update thread was started by a regular member on here (as in not a mod). Why not contact the member you mentioned if you think it is an issue and start a Garibaldi conditions thread yourself?
