Snowsuit Swap site is ready
Wednesday, July 11, 2007
After exhaustive research analyzing dozens of options with hours and hours of programming the Snowsuit Swap page is ready for some beta testing.

Okay, okay, so in reality I spent about 15 minutes on like three possible solutions. Just don't tell anyone.

Anyway, the Yahoo Groups came away as the best solution. It has a darn good database built into it where snowsuits can be listed as well as a place for photos of the snowsuits to be uploaded. Plus it has good privacy/security mechanisms and is easy to use. And best of all it won't require a lot of maintenance.

What we need now is a bunch of folks to join the group and just fiddle around with it doing some example snowsuit donation listings (aka beta testing) and hopefully provide some suggestions or enhancements. For example it would be nice to have an FAQ to answer questions some people may have about donating or trying to get a donated snowsuit.

I've loaded up a couple of example's onto the database already and some links (U.S. Postal Service rates page, etc.). But please feel free to add anything else you feel would be helpful. It would also be beneficial to start spreading the word (assuming you think this is a worthwhile effort of course).

So how do you join?

Just head to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/snowsuitswap/

There's a button on the right hand side that says "Join This Group". And then just follow the instructions.
