Great thanks! All of the data that you want to show will have to go into a single "paragraph" field. This field will have to be formatted in the way you want it to show on the site. For now that can only be plain text and newlines.

Feel free to make a pull request at any time. It doesn't have to be completely finished and it might be easier to go over the output file format on github.

How would the api work? Just hit it once a week to get a whole new data set?

I'd start small. We probably need a few iterations to figure out what data to get so no point in scraping a big area.

There's not a lot of similarities. That's a good (or bad?) part of these. You can write them in pretty much any language and any way you like.

This would be a completely separate scraper. All the fatheads and longtails use a source specific scraper. Usually we just figure out what a reasonable update period is and manually run it then. I like the atom feed though. I'll try and think of a way we could use that.

Agreed. Better notifications are in progress. I'll make an issue for the comment highlighting.

The re-use of names will be tough but there's plenty of tricks I use on my end to handle those cases. We can work on that once there's a working example to test. I think just including a popularity score in the data would be good enough to at least get something started.

I like the polygons on the maps. I was playing around with editing the map for my local climbing spot. Really neat!

Is there a site map or index to start scraping from?

Floey, I think it might be easier if you just want to scrap your small local area to get an initial test data set. I can put that on a server and give us something to start testing out.

Great! I like your comment about starting with the longtail instead of a fathead. Here's the longtail docs. The details are kinda sparse so feel free to ask me any questions.

It will just take longer to get a longtail working on my end. I'll have to add in support for geoip and maps which will take some time. If you don't mind the wait while I try to get it working then I agree.
