Disable automatic user signatures. They were abused in the old ClubTread forums long ago and quickly kill the signal to noise ratio.
Add redirects from the old URLs to the new ones, Google has completely removed all of the useful content from its index and dropped CT's pagerank as far as I can tell. Maybe they're already in place, can't tell.
Add link to trail database in header.
Remove "recent posts" from old ASP homepage since it's out of date now.
Fix images from migrated content.
Allow photos to be uploaded "inline". This is absolutely critical.
De-emphasize the "actions" under each post. It kills readability as you scan top to bottom across each post. Rather than big black buttons, consider smaller links or something similiar.
The default UTC date times will confuse anonymous visitors, and make most trip reports show up as the wrong date.
No way to see a user's trip reports easily.
A "garage" feature for a site devoted to self-powered recreation is a bad fit
With emphasis on "images inline", and "disabling of automatic signatures."
