ninimetreveli, that link goes to a general page of all the BootsnAll articles, so we don't know which article it is you're talking about. Can you provide a link to the specific article? I'm glad you liked it, whatever it was! Smile

It's amazing how many
ridiculous, stupid, ignorant,
inefficient, obnoxious
people you will meet,

when you are in a bad mood.

My one question is: Why is only one Canadian destination mentioned in this article? Canada just happens to be one of the "other" countries in North America. From my experience of skiing on both sides of the border, to exclude some of the phenominal skiing north of the border is doing a disservice to anyone looking for the "12 Best Resorts in North America". In my experience and opinion some of the best skiing is also in Canada. I don't think Lake Louise would be at the top of my list but everyone has they're own opinion. To exclude mention of places like Kicking Horse BC, Fernie Alpine Resort BC, Sunshine Village AB or even some of the lesser knowns like Shames Mountain for its unreal backcountry is doing a disservice to those looking for a killer experience. I don't argue that the resorts mentioned in the article are not awesome places to hit the slopes, I just think there are few Canadian jewels that deserved mention somewhere in the list. Just my 2 cents, no offence intended.

We would gratefully accept an article written by you that would clear up this oversight.

What is up with this thread? Is it like a catchall for article comments that through some techno glitch didn't get attached to the specific article? It feels a bit schizophrenic. You've got Canada, Egypt, France and who knows where and everyone is addressing their comments like we should understand what they are referencing. I can't be the only one confused. Confused

Callilucy,

You are definitely not the only one who is confused. This thread has been a head-scratcher since the first post, and I just figured out that your techno glitch theory is right on the money.

It's supposed to work that each article creates its own thread when someone comments, but at the moment they are all linking directly to this catch-all thread.

I'll alert the techno glitchers and get this fixed ASAP. Thanks!

That's what I figured. Thanks Rawjer.

I just tried to comment on an article by clicking the "got an opinion?"-thing at the bottom of the article. That brought me to the message boards in general, not directly (and with a link) to a post regarding the relevant article, as before. Is that a deliberate change?

One more thing, by the way: I've noticed that articles are no longer dated. I rather like seeing the date an article is published. Makes it easier when someone mentions "3 years ago, a tsunami wiped this little island off the map..."

But perhaps you have a reason for removing the dates? Smile

Thanks for the questions, Anne-Sophie... We've finally got our new commenting system up & running on BnA articles; you can read about the change here.

As for the date on articles, even if they're not printed in the article itself, you can figure out the year and month an article was posted from the URL. For instance, the URL for our new article about the 10 destinations for independent travelers in 2009 looks like this:

http://www.bootsnall.com/articles/09-01/top-10-destinat...-travelers-2009.html

In the middle, that 09-01 means that it was published in the year 2009 in the month 01.

Now, this isn't ideal for people who aren't looking at URLs, but it will help you find out the publication date if you're so inclined.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the quick reply, Jessie.

Ah, I see - better to see the comments along with the article, that's an improvement.

One question, though: When I tried to comment (on the Top 10 destinations-article incidentally: great list!), I was asked to log in (even though I am logged in - at least to the message boards. Is it a different log-in, then?

When I then tried to log in again, I entered my e-mail address (the same e-mail I receive BnA-updates on), I was told the e-mail isn't registered. Either that was because I was already logged in - or something is wrong...?

I see I'm rambling a bit here - hope you understand what I'm asking Smile
