Thanks to everyone! The ToS was great and went off without a hitch to my eyes. Technical difficulties seemed minimal and were handled swiftly.
I’m ok with 7 days, so long as the intensity scales to account for the compressed schedule.
The website was hard to follow. All the info is there, but it was challenging to figure out what you had to do. The DPF page is not always clear (not that you can help that). Links would take you to the right page, but sometimes the info was way at the bottom (see: stage start/end times). Lots of people have mentioned the dashboard. Stuff like that.
A banner inside the app that takes you to the ToS page on the website (with some edits for clarity), and clear links to the dashboard inside the app would alleviate a lot of confusion. Barring that (because I realize that all app modifications require work cycles), the ToS page on the website could simply say something like
“Interested? Here’s what to do:
- Register at DPF
- Sign into dashboard
- Go to app, load up prep plan
etc etc etc
A numbered list would make that process a lot easier. All the rest of the information is great and really helpful.
This conversation is exactly what a forum is good for: replies to a general topic. Linear forums like this are not good for creating conversations…as soon as people start replying to replies, they become anachronistic streams of opinions and random comments. As much as I hate Facebook (I don’t install it on my phone), it is far better for creating spontaneous conversations. A forum with nested convos may be better than this format.
Unpopular, uneducated opinion/devil’s advocate talking point: the label “Nuclear” deters people from trying the full ToS, and is as likely to indicate that your 4DP is inaccurate as it is to indicate how tough you are. No veterans are crowing about “going nuclear”, but a whole lot of newbies are beating themselves up for not being that tough. If you did away with the label but kept the intention and the description, I bet more people would give it a go. Which, if you are doing a shorter tour, maybe isn’t as much of a concern as before.
Thanks everyone! Amazing job. Love you folks
