New feature: Settings Page additions.
Context of comment:Over the years many thousands of people have registered on MountainViews, which is great. Some of the more active members know some of the other active members but really nobody knows as much as would be desirable about the membership in general.

If the committee and the publisher know a bit more about the membership we can have a better go at providing relevant services. In 2012 we published the results of a very revealing survey of the membership. (See http://mountainviews.ie/newsletters/month/2012-02/ and the next two months.)
Out of that we received huge encouragement to push on with the track sharing system (now we believe an established success), to improve the user interface ( out of which we starting replacing parts of the website with "V2" features.). We understood better the age group we were addressing, the experience level, the types of things people are interested in and the gender balance etc etc.

For this reason we have now created the "V2" version of the Settings Page.
Message:As well as cleaning up the interface, redoing the map etc, optionally people can now inform us of
when they started walking, what year they were born in, male or female, what clubs (up to 3) they are in.
As an online community we do not necessarily come into direct contact with all the membership, many of whom do not make contributions. This extra data informs us further about who we are.

The club information we hope will also eventually lead to us having a greater connection to the hundreds of hillwalking clubs in Ireland.

For those many who have chosen not to be in a formal hillwalking club we are thinking of introducing some MountainViews Groups ("MV Group") which can allow people to select other members who they would like to connect to. The MV Group could be region based ("West"), interest based ("MV Photo"), experience based ("Hillwalking newbies") or whatever.
Additional points:1. Fill in your details using "Settings" top right of any MV page. While it is more useful if you fill in everything, adding any given piece of information is optional.
2. If you would like us to consider an "MV Group", let us know at group@mountainviews.ie
3. This is new code. As always it could be buggy so let us know if it doesn't do what you expect.
