Awesome, I think that helps the site. I like the wikipedia references, got any more? The more references the better the credibility.
I like the idea of a better medium for posting progress. A custom script with a useful/helpful interface (forms) for inputting progress and workout reports... then you could display the data however you want. Public.. private... graphs.. rankings...
Separating the data from the view is always beneficial in software.
You would make more money too as there would be more incentive to visiting the site, and viewing more pages.. and hence seeing more ads.

That sounds cool but would be tough to implement, I will look into options.

you have to be careful when you add new features. more customization (ie users creating their own things, keeping track, logs, etc on the site) sometimes makes things so complicated it will drive people away. i think the simplicity of the site is something that most sites lack nowadays.

This is very true. Planning out the site navigation and organization so that it remains simple, while adding functionality will be challenging for the site.
It doesn't mean it can't get better though.

This is more of a tech question than anything else. I noticed that when I come to the forums and log in I have to sign in again to add/reply to a post. Is this intentionally set up this way? I can just go to the forum and log in whenever I make a comment but I was just wondering. Thanks.

You need to authenticate every time you post ?
Posted: Tue May 22, 2007 7:15 am
I've had the same issue - but not everytime...
Posted: Tue May 22, 2007 10:53 am
I click 'reply' and it takes me back to the forum top level but now logged in... then I navigate back down to the thread of interest, click reply again, and then it works.
I assumed it was just me...

You guys checking the "Log me on automatically each visit: " box when you authenticate?

Make sure you have cookies enabled.

Yep, and I have cookies enabled.
Strangely it worked today for the first time... weird.
Posted: Wed May 23, 2007 2:37 pm
Yep got cookies enabled. Right now I just go to the forum arena I want and when I click post reply I just sign in from there. But for me it's repeatable if I try to log in first. I'm fairly wary of automatic logins as I have other people using the computer and they would love to screw with me and write all kinds of things in here heh. I have gremlins around me...

Kevin, do you have a MYSQL database available to you for the site?
I'm not sure about tying it into your current authentication, I'm not web guru, but I do know enough php/mysql to write a call log for work. A simple form and database could help with people tracking progress.
