Three suggestions for ORIENTED


#1

I’m a recent member. I haven’t made it to Taiwan, yet… but, I’m in the process. I think the following would be helpful.

  1. Provide a map of Taiwan, along with maps of the major cities.

  2. Add a glossary section, for those of us who aren’t up on all the “lingo” – e.g., ARC, bushiban, etc…

  3. Since you recently expanded your jobs section, change the name of the “Teaching in Taiwan” forum to “Working in Taiwan.”

Thanks for listening.

Thank you for the suggestions. Some thoughts:

quote[quote]Provide a map of Taiwan, along with maps of the major cities.[/quote]

http://www.taiwan-map.com has a pretty good system of maps. I’ve considered linking addresses using their quick map search as a way of supplementing addresses. However, the structure of the database we use for our current yellow pages would have required a greater amount of programming than I could commit.

I will look into adding their search form on the site, at least

quote[quote]Add a glossary section, for those of us who aren't up on all the "lingo" -- e.g., ARC, bushiban, etc... [/quote]

I’ll start a thread about this. Hopefully, we can add it to the FAQ.

quote[quote]Since you recently expanded your jobs section, change the name of the "Teaching in Taiwan" forum to "Working in Taiwan."[/quote]

The Teaching in Taiwan forum is specifically for discussing teaching and training related matters. There are several other forums where you can discuss work issues: Living in Taiwan, Miscellaneous, and the Open Forum.

Gus,

Thanks for the reply.

As for the maps, a link to the site you mentioned would be good. I don’t think you need to link every address. The most I’d like to see would be a button/link somewhere (obvious) on the site. Maybe in the “my profile/register now/search/rules/calendar/faq/active topics” line. Also, maybe a link in the yellow pages.

I’m not sure I would look in the FAQ for it. Again, maybe an obvious link in the “my profile/…/active topics” line.

Again, thanks for listening and responding.
