    I'm thinking I might build a tool for the admins where they can go to an existing item, click on "add to GEboards", and it'll automatically build a thread for it.

    Lightbulb new layer

    You can add them on a diferent layer/folder. That way they don't clutter the new database. Who ever wants to see them can just turn on the layer.

    Ok, this is done.

    On most areas of the site, when viewing a list of files, there will be a link that says "Admin: Send to GEboards". This link will appear as long as three criteria have been met:

    1 - You have rights to administrate the files
    2 - The file has a single lat/lon point associated with it. The easy way to know is to see if it has a Maps link with it, or just Earth.
    3 - It hasn't already been added.

    It's a pretty easy to use tool and should help move some of the more interesting points to GEboards.

    I've thought about that as well, but it would be tricky to do given the current database layouts.

    I think converting them individually as needed will probably be our best answer.

    Captain and Spider. You misunderstood my idea. Again because of my english I couldn't explain it right.

    I meant the same as Jrod. His ideas with icons is featured by the network link. You don't have to add them all, and especially not the outdated. If you could click a category and the it shows up on GEboards.

    Sorry, buddy, but I replied on Mickeys initial post...

    Software is like entropy. It is difficult to grasp, weighs nothing, and obeys the second law of thermodynamics; i.e., it always increases.

    I like that idea. It might take longer, but I think it would avoid some of the clutter if you just added a whole bunch of them all at once.

    Hello Captain Hornblower

    I would like to know why you made such a lot of Maredo and Block House advertising. Do you make this for hobby, free meals or payment?

    I've added a whole bunch of McDonald's and Chick-Fil-A, but for no reason other than to populate it with good data. I think having a lot of that kind of stuff in there could be very useful over time.
