Location DB ToDo List
< on 8/16/2003 9:31 PM >
Posted on Forum:
 
These are the stuffs I have left to do before the Location DB is 'mostly finished':

Todo:

Allow reordering of gallery images
Allow deleting galleries
Pick a better name for the Location DB as a whole -- I don't know, unless you like UE Location DB?
Some sort of UE Search / Sort engine, allowing you to search/sort by the various criteria.
Intergrate with the forum search engine so posts in a location can be searched
Intergrate better with the forum so forumgoers know about the DB and actually use it!
Each Location has a counter, so it's possible to tell how many people have seen it.

done:

Private locations available only to people with registered accounts -- helps prevent Joe Public from viewing the information without first registering.
Update tracking also tells you which gallery and which picture, etc.
Allow people to add comments to individual gallery images
Allow uploading and automagic conversion of large JPGs into AvPano-compatible panoramas.


Any other ideas or suggestions?

I think we should call it "UE Records" .... or maybe "Urbex Records" ... "UE Archives"

"Exploration Journals"

I dunno... I like em... maybe I'll think of more.

And about the private ones... how about some of them be made "Private" to the extent that the author can place a Password on it themselves and only give it to those they select? I think that would be good too, just for those extra special locations if you know what I mean.

Why is marijuana not legal? Why is marijuana not legal? Its a natural plant that grows in the dirt. You know what's not natural, 80 year old dudes with hardons. Thats not natural, but we got pills for that. We're dedicating all our resources to keeping the old guys erect but we're puttin people in jail for smoking something that grows in the dirt.

Well, it costs me money to pay for the bandwidth that this site uses. If the author doesn't want it visible to anonymous users, thats fine. But making it only visible to the authors immediate friends basically turns it into their own personal website, and I'm not going pay for that.

that would be why that feature is listed under Todo instead of Done.

Added new feature, allowing gallery images to automatically have a credit placed into them, such as 'Copyright 2003 John Smith' or whatever. You can do this while uploading, or later as a batch.

I'am having problems with this new feature;

At Montreal Miron location, the first 14th pictures are showing a messy copyright text.

Also I haven't succesfully inserted the Copyright logo : ©

No, you can't insert the logo. Sorry.

The reason it's messy is because you used the Add Credit feature more than once. Every time you use it, the image is modified and re-saved. This means that a new credit is simply applied overtop of the old one.

You'll have to re-upload your images and then use the credit feature again.

Added panorama feature. Simply create a new pano, then upload wide files (wider than 600 pixels) and the system will automatically generate a panorama for you.

Av, did you ever do anything to keep those nosy search engines out of the UE-DB? I believe in the forums being open, but I want to share locations with other forum members, not with anyone who has mastered the use of google.

not that I care that much about this, or for the LDB in general, but this should probably be fixed:

9/18/2003 7:12 AM by Asher Archive

So that it actually updates when new people put information in...

Well, that's just my idea anyway, do what you want.

I think what he means is that the LDB only tracks who posted last in any of the LDB threads. What he is suggesting is that it tracks the latest updated location, posting that information in the main forum overview instead of who posted last in a thread in the LDB.

C.

P.S. What about a "Mark Read" function for the entire Location DB?

Modify: Making this competely clear

I know Av is far more femilar with this forum than I, so I don't know how much I really need to explain, but here I go: On the main page when you view all the catigories of the forum(IE main, website updates, Ontario, Quebec... whatever) beside them there number of threads, posts.. and if you keep looking to the right of that are statements like this: "9/18/2003 7:12 AM by Asher Archive"... as I stated before the one for the location database does not update, it has been stuck on sept 18 for a while even though numberous new locatons, and updates to other locations have occured(the main problem this will cause is for people who don't look at all the locations will look at the little dot and see the same colours and the name of the poster will be the same and will therefor not look in the DB as it seems as though it hasn't been updated).. and I guess I'm picky but things like that annoy me.

I hope you get it now.. cause I don't know how much more I can explain to make it any clearer.

in the new location DB dont narrow it down as far as the city but narrow it down to the state/provence. that i think would work better

LDB idea
<Reply # 18 on 12/30/2003 3:07 AM >
Posted on Forum: UER Forum
 
My idea is to have a "general location file" for each city. Maybe a little "Info" link out to the side of the city name or something. The idea is that it would get the history, maps, links etc in one place. It would be just like a regular LDB entry except for the city itself. It'll be educational! Good idea? Dumb idea?


If Av doesn't want to do the coding for that... would puting a star at the front keep it at the top of the list? Like so: *City of Montreal.

well, the "City of montreal" is not a single location, and i don't see a need to have this sort of information there... anyone who doens't know what montreal is can do a quick search on google, it's not like general info on montreal is UE-related...
