I will be in Cork for three months this summer on business.

>>> Lots of hills and summits about particularly to the west of Cork.

I am an avid peakbagger in the USA

>>>> MountainViews caters for peakbaggers and also encourages people to describe places and upload tracks which are all visible in the integrated display.

and make use of a mountain database website similar to this http://listsofjohn.com/CompletionAll.php?M=nikolai .

>>>>> Impressive looking, strong in some features but weak in others.

How are mountains listed here? What counts as a mountain?

>>>>> Take a look at http://mountainviews.ie/lists/ Click on Choose List types to review the selection of lists. We classify mountains as being at least 500m, hills as being under 500.

Do you have ranked and unranked mountains in this database? Is the cutoff to count as a mountain that it must be higher than 150 meters?

>>>>>> The lists vary and are specified by height and prominence. The "Binnions" are 100 to 400m with a prominence of 100m. The Vandeleur-Lynams are 600+ with 15m prominence.

Are there other databases of Irish mountains that are more complete than this one?

>>>>> Not readily available as far as I know.

-- what is different about them?

Is there a running tally for the website of ~200 most recent user updates?

>>>>> No, but there is a list of Rising Summiteers at http://mountainviews.ie/summiteers/rising/ ,
and a list of who visited a given summit most recently, and a personal profile -- a further comparative listing as you suggest might also be fun.

Like a brag sheet so everybody can see who had a big weekend, and who sat around at home.

>>>> ~What part of Texas are you from?

Is there a way to tick a summit on this website as a repeat?

>>>> Not currently.

I'm really looking forward to my Irish adventure.

>>>>> Hopefully will be fun particularly in summer.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to meet up with some locals to bag some peaks.

>>>>>You can try meeting other MV members through the website or join a club. You might like to try writing up summits with pics, sharing tracks, discussing issues on the forums etc. MountainViews has a mailing list going to 14000 and around 1500 have listed at least 10 summits climbed. Over a thousand have contributed summit comments.

>>>>> Over the years we have met some people from the US such as a couple from the Highpointers.
