    Is your Tent Space Post up to date? The Tent Space list was started six years ago, believe it or not. Right now there are over 1200 names on the list, spread all over the world. Many of the posts are several years old, and almost 90% of the posts are more than a year old. I understand people move, get married, get divorced, have kids, become hermits, or a combination thereof. Things change, and I'd like to get the Tent Space list completely up to date.

    In about a month, a small team of volunteers will be starting a project to double check each Tent Space listing to make sure it's up to date. You can help us out before we even begin by going to your Tent Space post and getting it up to date. It'll take about a minute, I promise.

    For those of you who haven't yet signed up for the Tent Space List, now is a good time to do it.

    First go to the Tent Space Sign-Up Thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=149585

    To find your Tent Space post, click on Search this Thread and type in your user name.

    Now click on the first line under your name to go directy to your post.

    The two dates which are important are the original date of the post in the upper left, and the Last Edit date (if any) located at the end of your post. If you've never edited your post, you won't have a Last Edit date. We'd like the more recent of these dates to be within the past year.

    Click on Edit over in the right corner, even if all the information is correct.

    [​IMG]

    Make any changes you want (or none at all) and then click on Save. Even if all the information is correct, click on Save anyway. That'll update your Last Edit date.

    If you're no longer able to offer your Tent Space, it's best to delete your post by using the nuke button. Your name will be removed from the Tent Space list and your location removed from the map.

    Now, my Last Edit date has been updated and I'm good to go for another year! :clap

    If you make this quick edit, you'll save the volunteers the time and effort to contact you. Thanks!

    Done.

    Thanks for taking this on. In the past I've had trouble contacting inmates who posted more than 3-4 years back, so the update is much appreciated.

    The index is way out of date, and I believe is soon to be abandoned. The map is current, and has a current index. Your post is there. See http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=776925

    Update your Tent Space post now, or you'll be hearing from a volunteer later. :deal

    Weird... some of the images aren't showing up on my end... hopefully just a brief glitch.
