New method of Track Uploads.
Context of comment:When you "Upload a track" you will now see a somewhat different sequence of screens.
After your track is uploaded you will find it divided into day routes as before, however this will be done in a list at the bottom of the page in the same style as "Tracks, Walks => View your tracks" page.
Unlike the "Old" pre-2016 system, you need to individually select which routes are to be saved. In the old system essentially all useable tracks were saved and you needed to remove those you didn't want.
Select the day in question from the list of routes in the list by clicking on the row. (Not on the "Creator" name, the rest of the row)

You will then get some information about the usability of the track. For a new track in most areas you will get the option "Save & optionally add detail". Click this to save the track.

It is then possible to add further information to the route, for example a title, your description etc. You can add formatted text with photos if you wish to. You can change this and all information later. You can also choose to add nothing at this stage.

There are two options to continue: "Save & Rate" is the preferred option. It allows you to tell us a bit more about the route such as what status you assign to the route, what challenge you believe it has, whether it is suitable for children or cycling etc. You can also click on "Save no Rate". We are keen to have all routes rated as it will help users find tracks matching their needs. Other peoples ratings of a route will be taken into account, however the route creators rating will always be weighted strongly.

If the GPX track you uploaded has multiple routes on it then repeat the above process for each day by clicking on the list at the foot of the page. You can see the Status of each day route in the list, to the right. Remember they have to be individually saved to be retained by the system.

We hope you find the new method better and more consistent with the rest of MountainViews.
Additional points:As with all changes, there is a good chance that parts of it are buggy. Let us know at admin@mountainviews.ie If you have suggestions for improvements, let us know.
For a while the "Old" system for uploading tracks will be maintained.
