I Made a Trip Reports Tool (And Trip Reports are Needed!!!)

Postby xiongmao » Sat Mar 22, 2014 11:34 am

OK so I'm having another crazy year. I got a new job then got fired a month later, so I unexpectedly have more time on my hands again :lol: :lol: :lol: .

Anyway, this week I got round to making a new trip reports tool. This is something I've been thinking about for a while, but now I've actually built a prototype:

http://www.asianloveconnections.com/TripReports.aspx

I'd welcome your input, and your trip reports. I'm focusing on Asia, but trip reports from anywhere else are welcome. I'd love some stuff from the Phillies, as I've never been there.

The biggest problem I have right now is that my geographical database isn't great, so sometimes it plots cities in the wrong place.

Anyway, if people like it I could easily add other enhancements, like adding photos. I should also do some number crunching and find out which are the best places to go for women, food, women, etc. :lol:.

I guess I could also deploy this as part of HA. I did pm Winston about it, but he's too busy resting on his laurels I guess. It's about time HA had some new functionality - I neglected my old software business (and career) and now look where I am . :cry:

I joined your dating site. I was wondering why you insist on squeezing all photos I uploaded horizontally? My head has a long tall shape to it and no girls is going to message me. If you want more people to join you will have to fix this asap. No girls are going to write me or anyone that looks the way they do after your site has messed up their pictures. Why don't you notice this when you approve photos?

Good to have you aboard.

It's easier if the site has all the photos the same dimensions, otherwise it looks a mess (like the Kisses sites).

I need to make a smart cropping tool like OKCupid and so many other sites have, but I can't spend too much time on a site that doesn't earn that much income.

Don't worry though - the Filipinas on the site will chat to anyone.

And anyone else reading - I NEED YOUR TRIP REPORTS!
