Tagging, grouping, recommendationsTagging is a popular buzzword lately, and for a good reason. It is a simple yet efficient way to naturally organize information.
Tagging serves two major purposes:
Social editing, collaborationWe employ the same general idea of editing that Wikipedia.org uses -- all places descriptions are editable by everyone. We do not use the same technology, but we do use roughly the same simple Wiki-language to describe data and layout of our pages.
Having said that, we are not a pure encyclopedia -- we extend the concept by allowing non-neutral point of view for instance in personal reviews of places.
There is no central authority that bans or approves what YOU can enter. There is even no requirement on notability of places you add -- as long as it is accessible to public you can add and describe it. The idea is, at least initially, to focus on day trips -- swimming holes, hiking trails, and other local destinations.
MembershipMembership is of course free. You can enter, tag and describe as many places as you want -- the more the merrier in fact.
The registration is a very simple process, requiring a minimum of time and information.
Go on, register and add a place or simply browse or search places others entered.
