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.

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.
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?

What a great resource ClubTread has been for me, and thank you so much Jim for creating it and spending so many hours maintaining it. It will be nice to see some improvements, particularly to photo uploads, in the future. That will encourage more of us to start contributing TRs again.

CT has its issues, but it remains as a solid usable message board and can be upgraded easily.
Thanks Jim H for getting it this far, and thanks Philip for taking it on to the next level.

Thank you, Jim, all the moderators and admins, for the amazing amount of time and effort you have put into making this such an amazing communiity of like-minded people. It has made such a difference to so many of us. I understand that continuing CT as it is would be an extremely costly and time consuming venture, and am grateful that everyone has kept it going for as long as it's been a great run.

As for the future, we will have to see how a company that owns 400+ websites of many varying genres is able to carry on this legacy.: a quick google search shows that Phil from Toronto has quite a few diverse sites to look after as webmaster.

Thanks Jim, all the other mods, for all your hard work on CT over the years. CT has been a big part of my life and I am all the better for it. Good luck in all your future endeavors!

Welcome Phil. It will be interesting to see how CT evolves over the coming years. Hopefully your taking over and changes can keep this a robust online community while staying with the original idea of what CT is. (Edit: I just went and looked at one of your other forums - skiing - I now I am worried about what is to come for CT! Looks like no one is looking at what is posted at all.)

As much as I like VBulletin, I run a site using the newest 5.xx version and it's not nearly as good as the older version. Sure it's stable, but in my opinion I would not upgrade to it until it's developed a bit further. It leaves alot to be desired from a design standpoint, and is probably just now getting past what should have been a beta test phase. They are working on it, and plan to continue to work on it, so it should be a good option soon enough.

PM me if you have any other questions about it, I'd be happy to go into greater detail.

Instead of vBulletin I'd like to suggest Discourse. It's still in beta but it's undoubtedly the future of forum software, and has some very talented people working on it, including some of those behind the Stack Exchange network of sites.

This site has helped me in many ways. It's allowed me to research those mountains that I just have to go see to having my questions answered by immensely experienced people. Sincerely thank you Mr. Hamlin for starting this website.

I look forward to the changes and improvements that Philip will create.
