Good suggestions so far guys. For the Trail wiki, I guess only moderators have access to updating that?
Hey, I *do* have the power to edit this. I had no idea.
but it's clearly a legacy. I have a couple suggestions:
1. The Trail wiki is not part of this site. It is part of the old clubtread site, and has clearly not been migrated over. I don't think this is a moderator thing, because I was not a moderator on the old site. I did see "edit" come up, and when I clicked it, it asked me to log in. I tried to log in with my credentials here, and it did not recognize them. So I used my older password, and sure enough, I got in. I believe that shows that it is hosted on a completely different site where I am using a different login. That said, I bet anyone who was a member before the buyout could still edit, because my old login certainly doesn't have any moderator powers.
But the fact that it is on a separate website is a problem:
I could edit, but I was not able to add a gpx track - that link must point to somewhere that no longer exists.
It also asks for photos via the 6-digit codes we used on the old site. I don't imagine it would be possible to add new photos, and the photos there are only thumbnails, with links to full-size images broken.
Are you guys willing to move it over and host it here with the rest of the forum, and upgrade it to share a similar style to the forum? That would need to happen for it to be a live resource again.
2. If so, it shouldn't be limited to moderators. I'd suggest that any account in good standing of 1 month or older may edit the wiki? I think "everyone can edit" is pretty much the fundamental point of a wiki. I can imagine we don't want it easily vandalizable, which is why I suggested the account age restriction, but otherwise, we want data from all users.
3. A big asset would be to link it with the forum in such a way that we can link trip reports to each trail's wiki, so that I could see all TRs someone has posted and connected, and be able to see more info in that way.
