Hello boys!

I was thinking about the blogs today, and thought of a few suggestions.

Given that TP already has maps of every country in the destination area, would it be possible to provide a thumb-nail picture of the map with a link to the full size version associated with blog entries? I think that would be of help to readers of the blogs unfamiliar with international geography.

I usually put the city and country in the sub-heading, but it might be better to include the country up with the date and weather information. Maybe a thumbnail of the flag (seeing as that's in the destinations area as well) would be cool.

I could reply something, but I'd probably be saying too much. So I never replied at all, okay? You haven't seen me! I'm still locked up in the basement. Just so you know.

Locked up in the basement... apparently doing nothing but reading the SYSTEM TALK forum and waiting for posts. ;)

Well, I hope Sander's doing more than that :)

We could do what you're suggesting Greg, but uhm, Sander is working on something which will be a heck of a lot better (I hear) .... without giving too much away which I guess I already have ...

Hmmm, yes re-reading my reply I didn't mean to imply that Sander was doing nothing. My apoligies to him.

Looking forward to the improvements. I have had it up to here with my current blog site, and am going to in the future use TP instead, so anything to dazzle my fans and take away from my poor writing is welcome.

Well, I don't think I'll be saying anything unexpected when I say that what is being worked on will blow any other system away that's currently out there for travellers ;) (apologies for the added pressure Sander :) )

*grins* No worries, I took it in the spirit that it was intended in. :) (And it was merely fortuitous timing that I responded as swiftly as I did.)

CC: you want details, but does anyone ever ask what I want???! No, I thought not! ;)
I'll be fair with you. You give me a truckload of chocolate, I'll give you one detail. Two details will cost you two truckloads of chocolates, and so on, and so forth. (This way, I figure I'll own all the chocolate in the world before you'll have a clear picture of just how awesome this thing is going to be.)

So, a couple of follow up questions:

(1) Is there a time frame for launch of the new, totally awesome blog functionality?

(2) Are there going to be changes to the categories? Because I have some suggestions for additional categories, but won't bother if the categories are going to morph into something different.
