Why does this website exist?
The idea behind this website is to allow for the creation of a collaborative community of
users whom work together to provide information to each other about River Tracing/Canyoning
How can I make use of this site?
Registered Users can fill out a simple form which will create a web blog about their trace
linked to their account. This post will be shown to other users on the site, and can also be
freely linked or shared with anyone you wish by whatever medium you wish.
What information is required to make a post?
As a site dedicated to users sharing information we enforce minimum requirements
on posts. The idea behind this is users should be able to learn enough about trace to
decide if they can/want to attempt it themselves. Currently that information is deemed to be:
- A short general write up- At least 3 pictures or a video - A GPS location to the start of the trace
How do I find a locations GPS coordinates?
You can quickly and easily find a GPS location on google maps. To make this
even easier you will find an embedded map you can click on when creating a post
which will help you locate and add this information.
How can this website help me grow my own social media accounts?
Registered users can link their Instagram and YouTube channels to their account which
will be visible as icons to others users on your profile page. Users can also add links
to their own YouTube videos which will be embedded within the blog page we generate for them.
