Come check out the new site add some products, edit some reviews, and add your picture of you skiing the ski that your reviewing. Have fun guys go to town if you want........

So does that mean that I can change the descriptions to read like something from the J. Peterman Company catalog?

If thats what floats your boat then ya you could do that. Or you could just right your own review for a ski that isnt up yet and have it read like a J. Petermen company catalog.

Although that is a wiki site it doesnt really capture what we are trying to do. Where they cover the basics very well ie. history and basics to equipment, etc. We are attempting to build a site that has products that you have skied on so that other people have the chance to read what you had to think about that product. Like I said prior it doesnt have to be something that Sierra Snowboard and Ski carries it can literally be ANY ski that has ever been introduced and that is what we are hoping that you guys can help us do. Everything from your old 215cm gs skis from the late 70's and 80's to early shaped skis.

sierra canuk, in you first post you state the site is "for you guys to be able to come in add products, edit products and really build the history of skiing."

In your most recent post in response my my post you state "...it doesnt really capture what we are trying to do. Where they cover the basics very well ie. history and basics to equipment, etc. We are attempting to build a site that has products that you have skied on so that other people have the chance to read what you had to think about that product."

If the object is to have a wiki site that is skiing specific, why not support an existing site and help it develop into something great. Why not look at adding to the existing wiki rather than split the knowledge?

Or does WikiSki simply suck because it doesn't have a front end to Sierra Snowboard and Ski ?

Sorry sierra canuk, I think your pimping of Sierra Wiki is one step short of unsolicited SPAM.

I went to that wikiski site and tried to add stuff about the local hill, but it kept telling me the session had timed out, no matter how many times I relogged in. Has anyone tried editing stuff there?

I have to disagree completely.

Why one step short? It's nothing but unsolicited SPAM.

The least he could have done is spelled "write" right.

At the very least, it's using Epic to advertise in a not-so-subtle way. I think Sierra Jim seems like a nice guy and all, but I don't like this. The notion that because the store -- and it is a store -- has a forum doesn't change anything, as far as I'm concerned.

It's not what I paid my $20 Epic Supporter fee for, that's for sure.
