WANTED: Field Guide Editors

Post by bobcat » November 14th, 2021, 11:51 am

Qualifications:

* Regular poster in the Forums
* Familiarity with the Field Guide from a user perspective
* Patience with learning/using the html interface

Basically Field Guide Editors do two things (and you’re always working at your own pace):

1. Editing

In essence this involves updating/augmenting existing entries in the Field Guide based on:

a) your own experiences while out hiking
b) other user or media information

2. Adding new hikes

We’ve got northwestern Oregon, the Oregon Coast, and southwestern Washington well covered, so we are especially seeking people who hike in central, southern, and eastern Oregon and can add hikes to those areas.

Here are general guidelines for working in the Field Guide:

Please PM me if you’re interested. I’d be happy to meet up /Zoom with anyone who’s interested to talk things over and answer any questions. I’m happy to walk you through your first few entries and help fill things in as well!
