Tent Space Double Check project

Along with Ride Reports, the crown jewel of ADVrider is the Tent Space list ( 1200 inmates have offered a place to stay to other riders since sometime in 2006 and itís been used countless times. Unfortunately, some of those offers for space are no longer good. People have moved, found a new hobby, or simply forgot they made the post in the first place.

Inspired by the maps created by SteveJonesMO ( I've begun a project to Double Check all the tent space offers to make sure the users are still active, that the offers are still good, and that Steve's maps are as current as possible.

But it's not just me. A small team of volunteers is helping to contact all the Tent Space hosts. More volunteers will be joining us as the project ramps up.

At the beginning of the Tent Space Double Check project, only about 13% of all the Tent Space offers were up-to-date. Specifically, 87% were more than year old.

The initial goal of the Tent Space Double Check project is to bring that number up to 90% in one year--by June 1, 2013. Thereafter, the goal is to reach and maintain the Tent Space offers to 95% up-to-date.

If you're a Tent Space host, you'll probably be hearing from one of the volunteers. If you're not already a host, now is a good time to sign up and give back to the community we're all part of.
