Re: Tagged hills vanishing

Sorry about this. I have been looking into it with regards to changing this. The mountain and route tags on walk reports are stored against the topic in the topic table in our database. Unfortunately, drafts are not in the topic table at all - they are stored elsewhere. This means that coming up wit...

Coronavirus and moderation

There has been much discussion of the government guidance on coronavirus. We have no idea whether the guidance is correct and sensible; it's a hugely complex and serious situation in which we have no expertise. We do, however, have a duty to let people know what the official guidance is. At the star...

Re: Go Outdoors face administration

Overnight stays away from home - including camping - are against the lockdown guidance in every UK country at the moment. Single person households are allowed to form a bubble which enables them to be regarded as a member of another household - so that household becomes part of their home. To respec...

Re: Go Outdoors face administration

Camping and hospitality now open in England. Just to correct this for anyone confused, overnight stays away from home are currently not permitted in any UK country. England is planned to begin to open up from 4th July. After closing the 'law' thread, we've received our biggest ever mailbox of suppo...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

This thread is resulting in many complaints and much upset - we have decided to now close the discussion. It seems like everyone has already made their opinion very clear by this point, and it is just generating anger between users that could persist for the future. Just a reminder of the current of...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

Josaff, the post removed had no relevance to or mention of hillwalking, or of Scotland.

Walkhighlands doesn't exist for people to spread fake news stories about random overseas events. Please see the moderation policy.

Re: New Coronavirus Law

We've taken a very liberal approach to moderating this thread up to this point, but have deleted the latest post, which was a promotion of irrelevant conspiracy theories with no relevance to walking, following complaints. The latest government guidance is extremely clear - "people should contin...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

I should be clear that I was posting only about how 'the law' and 'guidance' interact, and not about the recent rescue or what is happening in England.

Re: Stravaiging

Really sorry about this. Someone asked us to add 'Stravaiging', and I reordered the options to put them in alphabetical order, since there are now quite a few. I didn't realise that reordering them would mean that the software would change people's choices so that they fitted with the old order, but...

Re: New Coronavirus Law

Whilst I don't want to get involved in rights and wrongs, I think there are some misconceptions about 'the law' and 'guidance'. The law says you must stay at home except with ' reasonable excuse ' (which includes outdoor recreation amongst other things). The guidance says that exercise / recreation ...
