Do I need to join mncanoeing to access pcd?


The site was changed to (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links) since it doesn't cover just Minnesota anymore.

To answer your question - no, you don't need to join to access the PCD. To contribute ratings, your would need to register (free). If you contributed to the PCD previously, I can link your old PCD ratings to your account so you can manage/update/delete them.  You can also access your own Inukshuk ratings (once you register and let me know what your PCD username was), but no one else can at the moment. There are some paid features, but accessing the PCD, maps, and other data is free.

I wholeheartedly agree with db - I don't actually like the star system, but it is what everyone is used to. I much prefer detailed comments over star ratings. I have seen the same campsite marked one star and five stars by different people. It all depends on what you need out of a campsite. An example is my trip this last weekend with my 5-year-old son. The campsite we stayed at was probably only an average campsite, but it was perfect for him. To the "normal" paddler, it was only three stars, but to us it was 5 stars for that weekend.

Personally, I've never liked the idea of red dots on a public map. To me, dots are earned and/or shared on a need to know basis. That said, I'm still glad there are good dots out there and both you and AZ did impressive work that I can only assume helped a lot of folks, myself included.

Question. I commented on a "campsite" today. What do you do with comments from unregistered visitors? Just kinda curious is all (plus I'm still testing stuff out  Wink ~db).

Depends on if it is a "rating" or if someone is just letting me know a site does/does not exist. If it is to let me know about a map correction such as changing a campsite status, I fix it as long as the source seems credible and doesn't contradict what others have said.

For ratings or other comments, traditionally I haven't done anything with them. I've considered creating an "anonymous" identity that I could use to post them. I haven't yet, though, since I have not received many and I would like the contributor to have the ultimate ability to change/delete the comments.

Thanks, Ben. I just saw nothing concerning the pcd on the homepage. Not a problem, I will register and see what happens.

My kid says I don't do sarcasm very well and my wife agrees.

Eh, whatever.

Two stock-holding members of Congress walk into a heavy metal bar. You’d think the second one would’ve ducked.
