    April Forum Updates

    Yes - we understand that you want SPAM Issues fixed. And we continue to work on that, however we are releasing a list of updates in the forum today.

    1. Sidebar updates to standardize ad units and added additional value content widgets which include:
    • TR Pick (currently highlighted trip report from The Stash)
    • Stash Pick (currently highlighted content from The Stash)
    • Photo Pick (currently highlighted photo from The Stash)
    • Popular Content from the main TGR site
    • Stash Upload Widget


    2. Sticky navigation. If you scroll back up from far down the page the black bar utility nav will pop back in and you will be able to navigate within the forum categories drop down at any point on a page. This was a request of members when we launched the initial updates last summer.

    3. Google reCAPTCHA on registration form to help with SPAM efforts

    4. Slide-up to introduce forum members to their Stash Profile on homepage

    5. Removed old forum profiles for the new Stash profile pages

    6. Set the default theme to the white version. You can switch between the white and blue versions by the drop down box at the bottom of the forums.

    Updates are still in progress...

    Annoying. Not value added. I care about the page I'm reading in the forums, if I gave a shit about the stuff in the Stash I would go there.

    Doesn't work for me. Not a bad thing, since I have a "Home" button on my keyboard that magically takes me back to the top of the page anytime I want.

    Has anyone on here actually said they want or need the Stash? Pretty sure that's a no.

    See my response to #4.

    This one is sure to get some bitching, but I prefer the white theme, so fine with me.

    Using Chrome on a PC -

    The white header bar is huge. The black sidebar is even huger. The actual content on the page -- i.e. the stuff I want to read -- is now roughly only 2/3 of my entire screen.

    In other words, it looks crappy.

    The floating top bar is working for me now and I agree with this.

    Your "updates" suck. Stash pop up will make me avoid this site. Content we clicked on this website to visit- only 2/3 of page as stated above.

    So far I've been reading on my 20" monitor at work. Annoying, but not terrible.

    Dreading going to the Macbook at home.

    AdBlocker....

    Blocked element:
    <DIV
    id="navigation" >

    Blocked element:
    <DIV
    class="widget_content blockbody floatcontainer" >

    It leaves tons of dead white space on the page, but at least the distraction is gone. Including the TGR logo in the header and the floating bars. I can now view content in the full height of my screen.

    Yeah, I gotta add that I'm on 24" widescreen monitors both at work and at home. That makes the forum *useable* with the new giant-ass sidebar and such. God forbid I was still using my 17" monitor that I just replaced a couple weeks ago. The forum would be completely fucking unreadable on that thing.

    The black sticky header that pops in and out is annoying as shit. Either have it there all of the time, or preferably, none of the time.

    As people are saying in other threads... stop "fixing" shit that isn't broken, stop giving us bullshit that we don't want, and fix the things everyone has been asking for for fucking weeks or years.

    I watch/buy your ski movies, and visit the forums. Understand that you gotta have ads to pay for the forum costs, that's fine. I couldn't give even a quarter of a shit about anything else that you put on your fucking website so stop trying to ram it up my ass.

    Ok. On the 15" Macbook now.

    WHAT THE FUCK.

    Lost a good quarter of the right side of my screen. Plus a good chunk of the top.

    Please. Stop. "Fixing." Things.

    Clap clap clap!

    WTF are you guys thinking. Can you suck harder?

    I feel an eminent exodus, and you deserve every bit of it.

    I clicked on the stash pop up hoping it would make it go away. Still pops up every time. Genius.

    Are you getting ad revenue from that or is it just there to annoy us?

    It gets more annoying each time I see it. Seems like super basic web design 101 not to have stupid shit like that. Does TGR hire the dumbest of the dumb?

    As stated, this Stash thing with the POPULAR THIS WEEK links and the big white bar at the top of the screen are not wanted or needed.

    If I want to look at that stuff I can go find it. I want to read the forum, and I would like to read it in the full width and height of my screen.

    Fix what's broken, not what works.

    I was thinking the same thing. If this isn't fixed soon, I say we put up a poll and decided where we should move to next. Powder to TGR to ?

    They've made huge improvements in both the forums and web content. They've done a really good job of upgrading over there.

    I check the content everyday. Its almost all skier/member based TR's with none if the "TGR is sooooooo hardcore we make the best bro brah movies anywhere" corporate shit bring shoved down your throat.

    The forums there are a ghost town right now, but that makes it ripe for us to make it our own.


    I'm not affiliated with them in any way. Just think it's got some good ski dudes running it.
