Need more room in the profile - sections limited to 100 characters

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I don't if I'm abnormal or not, but 100 chars is not enough to describe what gear I use. I mean, I know I'm abnormal, but I'm just talking about the profile limit now.

We just copied the limits directly from the vBulletin installation.

Yes, but this community model is different from the old community model. Gear is supposed to be more important. And this is an easy change to make.

If I have this right, you can choose to add gear and review it (or not).  The old gear profileis kind of obsolete.  The main problem with the Gear, Apparal and stuff you own, is that only current models are listed.  Poor Volantaddict.

The idea behind the "Your List" section on your profile (and all the "Add to Your List" buttons on gear and resort pages) is exactly that - to show off exactly what gear you own and where you ski.

 

You certainly don't have to review gear or resorts as you add them to Your List but it's a way to get some (hopefully interesting) statistics about what folks on EpicSki are really using.  Unlike the freetext in the "Gear I use" section on the Community Profile, the data from users Lists can be quantified.

 

Here you can see Trekchik's List, for example:

 

In terms of old gear, while the categories do list current models (sourced from Backcountry.com), you can always add any gear you like.  Here is a tutorial on adding gear to the Gear, Resorts & More section.
