RE: HooToo TripMate Elite, successful "WIFI as WAN".

What you don't get for that price is the transmit power capabilities of the Pepwave, Cradlepoint or other WiFi as WAN routers. This isn't going to be a range extender; but it will help if you are at a park that only permits one device to be connected to its network.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

A search by average ratings would be a dis-service to everyone since they apparently are not weighted by time. A park that is improving or going down hill will be improperly scored. And we all know that there are very few parks that don't change one way or the other over time. Especially impacted will be new owners who take on a run down park and build it up and parks where a change in ownership or management is running the place into the ground (think all the parks Morgan resorts bought). I'm not sure why you assume you know all the answers about how the system is run. Weighting the average score so new reviews have more impact than others is definitely something that has been discussed and may be implemented in the future. I can't say for sure that it will happen or how it will be implemented if and when it is, but it was a fairly obvious issue which, most probably, will be addressed soon.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

Kind of like both the old and new sites. I like the fact you can see most reviewed and highest rated on the new site. I hate the fact that I can't login into my username, though. I emailed for help. Will wait and see. Worst case.....I set a new user name and update a review or 2. Great job for a free site. :b Try using the email address that is on file instead of your username. Use the same password as before.That doesn't work for me since I used a very simple 4 character password in the previous incarnation and the new site requires a minimum of 5 characters. I tried to just create a new username and password, but the system rejected it because my inoperative username and password combination is tagged to my email address. I didn't want to go through the hassle of creating a new email address just so I could post comments and reviews, so I took the next easiest step and decided the site really doesn't need my input and reviews anymore. It was fun while it lasted. Had you sent the Help Desk an inquiry they would have been glad to assist you. They could have set a temporary password so you could enter one of your own. We're sorry to see you go, but we'd be happy to work with you if you change your mind.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

I won't complain too much since it is free, but I already mentioned that I would like the window of recent reviews to hold more reviews. I tend to watch that for new campgrounds and bad reviews. Hard to say how many reviews I miss now. Your suggestion has been put on the list of improvements. However, this week has been spent fixing bugs that require immediate attention. Improvements come a ways behind bug fixes. Your patience is appreciated.

Hard to say how many reviews I miss now. I've already put that idea to the development team to see if it can be incorporated. When they finish fixing this first round of bugs they will spend time evaluating changes and improvements. Thanks for the suggestion.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

I think that is a sensible suggestion that we could live with. Since this is Day 2 of the new website, you can imagine that we're trying to stay afloat identifying and fixing bugs. :B But we are compiling a fix of "additional features" that we'd like to add at a later date and I will put this one on that list. Thanks The biggest feature that I'd like to see is when looking at the count of reviews to be able to click and see say just the 1-star reviews or just the 4-star reviews. If nothing else, adding a sort option to for the reviews would get closer to that. On edit, I love the new site. Tell Janet that I said so. :) I like the idea of reading reviews with specific ratings; I use that feature on Amazon and TripAdvisor all the time. I'll recommend it to Janet! ;)

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

I really liked the feature that let you limit your search to only those parks rated above 7.5 etc. and miss it on the new version. When we tried it on the cell phone, half the space was taken up with ads. Is it possible to slightly reduce this space to 1/3 so that we can see more of the actual review on the screen? Thanks! Since the old system didn't create an average score for parks, I'm puzzled as to how you were able to search using it. I don't recall an ability to search for parks by scores. If you had found a way to do this I would be interested in learning what I had overlooked.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

I liked the old site much better. Also having trouble having my reviews posted. Please describe the problems you are having getting your reviews posted. Since the site has only been online for 3 days I assume you are referring to something in the submission process not the approval process. Please let us know so we can fix any problems.

Seems to be a glitch this morning. All I get is the following via old and new links. Error in exception handler We're still resolving some server issues but it was online when I wrote this response.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

We have started traveling with smartphone (Android) and leaving the laptop at home. Yes, we are trying to make it into the 21st Century. I appreciate that the new website is mobile device friendly; it makes it much easier to use on the go. Also, it loads much more quickly. I say this even though I really liked the old website, and don't enjoy learning to navigate new websites in general. My understanding is that the phone app that is under development will provide at least the ability to access the park database and probably the average ratings offline without a network connection. Reading reviews would necessitate being online.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

My one suggestion is to have a category for cell/data service. Could be very simple, each reviewer quickly list carrier and reception quality. Not looking for in depth review of function, just a quick go or no go approach to data/cell service. We've discussed this among the staff several times. The problem is that we'd have to have "buttons" for all the major carriers (at least Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-mobile) and would have to have both voice and data entries, since one can have good voice but poor data, etc. Then you get to the question of assessing "good, average, poor" performance. Does that mean signal strength or download speed (measured how)? Should we have separate entries for 4G and 3G? What about if the reviewer is using an amplifier, should that be noted? As you can see this is not such a simple question if the objective is to get meaningful data. Just marking "yes" to a cell phone service question won't provide much real benefit. If you can think of a way to simplify the topic, we'd appreciate the suggestion.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

I guess I am the "stick in the mud." So far, I don't like it. Maybe I need to spend more time with it. Not as easy on the eyes for me and the ads are annoying. I use AdBlock on Chrome; it is available for FireFox also. I never see ads on any site. There were ads on the old RVPR site, but I never saw them. AdBlock has a huge memory footprint. A lot of the complaints about FF being a memory hog were in fact caused by AdBlock. I'm using AdGuard on Chrome right now. Thanks for the tip; I switched. Does seem like faster page response.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

I'd like to see the last 10 scores displayed, as they were previously, instead of just the last 5. When I'm scheduling trips, either for myself or for a group, the first thing I like to do is average the past 10 scores to get an idea of whether I even want to consider a campground. I'm not sure where you're seeing "5" scores". If I do a campground search I get a list of CG's with just the calculated average score displayed (we didn't have an average before). If you look at the listing for a particular park, the average is at the top of the page and all the individual reviews are accessible to you. Please explain where the "5" issue comes in; it may be a screen I haven't yet explored.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

Worked nice two problems I tried to do a review from March 2014 and date field would not let be go back that far. Search at the top of the first page does not work IE I put in Redway, Ca You can't submit reviews for stays more than 6 months old. That was a rule before, but the website didn't automatically reject them (but the admins did if they noticed). Now the website stops the submission. The search bar will work if you put in just the city name without the state. It will return a list of matching cities. This is probably going to be changed because it is rather unpopular.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

Nice but I don't trust the reviews. I always had problems getting negative reviews I submitted posted. Positive ones were no problem.... We have thousands of negative reviews posted. Many negative reviews recount a particular incident. All we ask is that all reviews contain information useful to others about the park IN ADDITION to recounting the incident which you are reporting. That way your review is helpful to others even if they don't encounter the same problem you did.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

The new and improved RV Park Reviews website has gone live. Spend some time exploring it. Additional features will be added over time. Please let us know of any bugs you encounter; we can guarantee there will be some! :B RV Park Reviews When I click on that link all I get is "Whoops, looks like something went wrong." Tested with Firefox and IE, same result in both browsers. It may have been taken down briefly during the night, but it is back up now.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

Free of advertisements?? You can make it free of advertisements if you use AdBlock with either Firefox or Chrome. That was also true of the old site. I don't see ads on any site I go to.
