Search conditions.

Postby Whats the Point » Mon Jun 23, 2014 12:30 pm

I would like to ask for an addition to the trigpointing website search conditions. I’m mainly interested in logging pillars and download files for use on my Satmap gps device. However my enthusiasm doesn't extend to pillars that have been destroyed, where there’s nothing left to see or find. So it would be better for me if the search criteria included a category with condition ‘Not destroyed’. This would then also apply to surface blocks, FBM’s etc. There may be other ‘Not’ conditions that would be desirable – like ‘Not intersection stations’ Please don’t see this as a criticism of the excellent web site and android app.

I agree with "What's the Point".
I usually use OS 1:50,000 maps, but I do find the website useful for learning of and finding those not shown, eg "toppled" or "moved".
The hobby of visiting trigpoints seems in the best traditions of British eccentricity, but going to see something that's no longer there???!!!!

Going to see something that isn't there any more plays to another one our quirks: we love to be disappointed. Even if we know it's not there, it's still a little disappointing that it hasn't magically reappeared in the intervening years :D

I used to be of a similar opinion that visiting something you know is no longer there seems a little futile but over the years I've changed that as there have been some sites I've visited where the views have been lovely and making the effort has been very much worthwhile.
