Progress Report?

Recommended Posts

Could one of the people involved in the Waymarking implementation give us some kind of update on how the BETA test is going?

 

Some things I am curious about are...

 

1... When can we expect the Catagory submission process to be opened to all players?

2... When can we start to get Pocket Queries?

3... How is the "Group Management" feature coming along?

4... How is the Beta Test actually going? Any issues?

 

Thanks

1... When can we expect the Catagory submission process to be opened to all players?

 

When group functionality is launched this feature will happen at the same time.

 

2... When can we start to get Pocket Queries?

 

We're taking a different approach to this so it will take a while longer. The additional variables create some complications to generating PQs, and the volume of waypoints will be larger.

 

We'll have a network kml for your favorite waymark categories in the next release, however.

 

3... How is the "Group Management" feature coming along?

 

We're on target to have it launched by the end of February.

 

4... How is the Beta Test actually going? Any issues?

 

Sean can speak to this but I think he has so many changes on the site that bugged him from the first release that he's been working hard to fix most of them. So you should expect to see lots of minor and major tweaks based on his own observations and those from the community.

 

We haven't worked out all the details. However, where the Geocaching.com database is somewhat restricted the new site will have a lot more capabilities for acquiring and sharing the data. The reasoning behind this is the majority of waymark data is relatively static and doesn't suffer the same issues of stagnancy that we get with geocaches. It's also a big reason why geocaching (or geocaching related activities) is off limits as a category on Waymarking.com.

Thanks Jeremy... I do sincerely appreciate being brought up to date.

 

I don't know who Sean is... I assume that is Bootron.

 

But still, very happy to see a clear response on this... I feel better.

Bootron is working on the process for moving the updates into production. OpinioNate and Bootron have been banging on it for the last couple of weeks and should get most of the kinks out by the end of this week. If everything goes well we should be able to get the changes online by next week.
