Some Plans for the Future

December 22, 2012 11:27 PM by Coomer

So yesterday I promised a post about what's coming in the near future, and while I'm still not 100% sure on what exactly is coming and when, here's some of what I've got planned.

Something I'm really excited about is a rating system for bikes that will personalize your bike browsing experience. For example, if you rate a bunch of  classic Italian steel bikes highly, you'll see personalized suggestions for more Italian steel and similar bikes we think you might enjoy based on what users similar to you like. I think this will really be great, and I'm super excited to build it out.

For bikes with bike history, I'm working on better management manage stages and photo. For example, dragging and dropping photos to stages, which is buggy, will be fixed soon.

Another thing in the works is better moderation and management of content, including community flagging and a small moderator team to help keep things in check.

Finally, I've got some improvements to the marketplace, including a feedback system and search, that will be launching soon.

I've also toyed with the idea of building a feature/mobile app to find others to ride with as well as provide a calendar of planned rides/events, but I'm not quite sure on that yet. I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks of this.

That's some of what I've got planned, but that's definitely not it, and I'll be working hard to improve the site a lot in the coming weeks. Let me know what you think, and what you'd like to see on the site. Cheers!

Sorry for being so late to respond everyone, just realized I wasn't getting comment notifications anymore due to an error on my end.<p>quixoticle, it's a big idea I've been toying around with in my head for a while. Not so much an afterthought, but I'm hesitant to build it because it's so much work. Though I still am interested in building it, and have been prototyping some designs recently. I'd love to chat more about this. I tried to get ahold of you through your Tumblr but couldn't find any contact info. Shoot me an email at <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> or reply here if you want to chat more! Cheers!</p><p>Thanks for the comments everyone!</p><p>RSS feeds have been added to tags, just go to a tag's page and add ".rss" to the URL, like this: <a href=" rel="nofollow"> working heavily on the site and some solid improvements and new stuff is launching soon.
