Changes to Highest Hundred
Context of comment:MountainViews announces the following changes:
Added to Highest 100:
Cove Mountain (Mournes) in,
Seefingan (Dublin Mtns) in,

Lyracappul (Galtees and which was in doubt) remains in,

Removed from Highest 100:
Mullacor (Wicklow) out.

To be determined:
Knocknagantee (Dunkerrons)
and also the status of
Coomcallee (Dunkerrons)

These changes are all as a result of surveying to an accuracy of .1m
Message:As always, if we make changes to a list and it turns out that you haven't visited a summit that then becomes part of the list, any certificate you have from us is still valid.
Certificates are awarded on the basis of what the list was at the time of certification.

Nevertheless you might like to visit the "new" members of the list anyway.

Re: Problem with iphone7 .. need confirmation
Context of comment:problems viewing page on mobile phone
Message:Screenshots of the problem always help with figuring out what's wrong. On my IPhone 6 the introduction box covers most of the page, and it is bigger than the screen of my phone, so if I want to close it with the "x" I have to pan to the right. However I can successfully do that, and I can also close the popup with the "Close Introduction" button (it is just visible on the screen).

Problem with iphone7 .. need confirmation
Context of comment:The following message appeared recently:

Hey, I was hoping you could help. When I try to go on your website from my iphone7 the MountainViews introduction box is continuously trying to load and blocking an important part of the page etc. Would you have any ideas what's wrong and how to fix it? Thanks J
Message:MV has often had to deal with issues that appear on different devices and it is impossible to check all.

Could I request people using Apple products and browsers and in particular iphone7 to let us know about their experiences with the introduction panel on MV?

Message:Re Commenting on Saved Tracks
Additional points:Hi Simon, unfortunately no, that input box doesn't present itself for me. Nor does the small "+" sign visible in your picture.

I tried it using Chrome, MS Edge and MS Internet Explorer, but couldn't get it to work on my devices.

I was trying to add a comment to track 2338.

It would certainly be a very good feature. Interested to hear if other users can do it.

"After clicking on Write comment" from simon3 Contract pics
Picture: After clicking on Write comment (Contract pics)

Re Commenting on saved tracks.
Context of comment:This feature is indeed intended for people to make comments to existing tracks, allowing updated information etc.
As far as I know it is working. Just click where it says "Write comment". An input box should then appear immediately below where you clicked.
Enter text in this and then click on "Click to POST comment" and that's it.
Message:Try it. It was definitely working for me this morning, see
https://mountainviews.ie/track/4506/
Additional points:However this feature was introduced just before the lockdowns started so perhaps not so many people were commenting on routes. Perhaps there are some input setups it doesn't work on We have also changed hosting which might have introduced errors. So, please do report this or any feature that isn't working.

Commenting on saved tracks
Context of comment:I see a comment box on tracks but can't work out how to use it. Is this function in use? If so, any chance of a quick explanation?

I can rate the track but can't seem to add comments. For example, if a track was uploaded quite a long time ago, it might be useful to give updates etc, rather than adding a new track.

Mostly Resolved Disruption on MV
Context of comment:MountainViews is migrating its hosting for technical reasons.
Message:This will start at 8AM on Monday 24th May.
Message:You may find that website stops working or behaves oddly.

Do not upload new comments, tracks etc on Monday until we notify you that this is completed.

There is a risk that the migration will take more than one day.
Additional points:When we have completed this, this forum should be available again.

The initial work has been done and appears to have been successful.

There may still be some untested features not working.
Additional points:As with any big change, there could be errors, yet to manifest themselves.
