Current Website Issues & Options

  • Newsletter and user-account integration is still problematic
    • Many people are not included in the newsletter and are not included upon account registration. Need to check both lists
    • To unsubscribe people have to first login? Should add a link to request new pw
  • Very poor integration with photos from Flickr and Facebook
  • Need to organise and separate 789 information/ users from 6810 more coherent
  • Need logo's and other promotion material
  • More multi-media content? Video's? Photo-upload options
  • Do we want more social networking aspects integrated? What type/ form? Or we keep it more minimal?
    • User relationships (traveled with/ met), Facebook connect (linking it with your facebook account/ checking who of your friends is a user already), Twitter integration, etc.
  • Profiles private or public, or give user the option?
  • Location tracking of hitchhikers? Creating a map to show people's routes?
    • Have a map on your profile and one that aggregates all routes. Like a tripplanner.*
  • Translations. Old content visible or only when translated?
  • Mail subscriptions for forum, to replace e-maillist. Option to respond by e-mail
