We in Wisconsin have some really good RTE's but one draw back is the RTE Locations are always buried in a post that might have been posted years ago....What is the groups thoughts on creating a stick note post where only the name and address of RTEs would be listed so that as people from Wisconsin or those that visit us can look up a RTE and visit that restaurant when they are out riding in Wisconsin? Thoughts....?....We could add in neat locations to also visit...?

As Randy said. Only an administrator can do it.

He is also the one that does the events calendar.

GW Kevin,

Sorry...didn't mean to steal the show....what I will do is talk with the admin's and get a sticky note and transfer your information/thread to the sticky note....


....what my thoughts were is to create the sticky note into 4 regions NW / NE / SW / SE Wisconsin with an out of state section...that way one can go to a particular section based on where they are going in the state...

I will give a layout later this week...

Thanks...

Layout - Give Feed Back

Here is a template of what I was thinking for the RTE library......Give feedback....once looked over I will contact admin to create a sticky note....as people send in food places I will place them in the correct quadrant of the state and make a running list of restaurants...

Question: Do you like the idea of organizing them per quadrant in state or would you prefer one long list in alphabetical order...if alphabetical by name or city...?

Let me know your thoughts...

Sample of Fill In Blanks

Name:....................Sample Restaurant
RTE Type:..............Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner / Dessert (write in one or all)
Typical Food:.........Burgers / Eggs / Pizza / Steaks / Cream Buffs / Ice Cream (write in one or all)
Known For:............1 Pound Ice Cream Cones (keep it simple)
Hours Open:...........7am – 8pm
Address:................1234 Honda Lane
..............................Milwaukee, WI 53001
Website:................www.restaurant.com
Wis. Quadrant:......NW / NE / SW / SE / Central (don't fill in...this will be filled in when we organize the listing)

******************************************************
Copy, Paste and Fill In Blanks (Fill in much of it you know)

Name:....................
RTE Type:..............
Typical Food:.........
Known For:............
Hours Open:...........
Address:................
..............................
Website:................
Wis. Quadrant:......

If by quadrant, are we able to look things up by quad first and then by alpha? if not, I would stick with alpha for WI. the problem is we may know the name or part of a name (stone) but not the area or not the whole name.

if you can add the quadrant as well, that does help if one is just browsing the list. even if that is just an addon to the listing itself, it would help rule out/narrow down.

Not sure what is capable, but if there are more search possibilities, type of food. IE, Dessert place. Bar food. Hole in the wall café etc...

It would be nice if you could have a place for there website. That way people can actually look on the website for info the sticky note might not tell:shrug:

Added....

After some thought , quadrant makes sense to me . If your riding to an area it would be cool to see what's a available easily . Just my 2 cents . Anything is better than nothing . Thanks for doing this BTW .
