Hi

I'm new here. A few days ago I have uploaded three trails to trailforks.
Two of the three trails where rejected.

http://www.trailforks.com/rejected/trail/2229/

http://www.trailforks.com/rejected/trail/2228/

But there is no Information / reasons why the trails where rejected.

Are there any informations available why this is happening?

Thanks mat

Did the trails that were rejected have a gps track?

It could also be that your submitted "trail" was more of a "route". A trail is an individual segment, where as a route is a collection of trails strung together.

I think what you're submitting is routes, or an entire ride loop, including riding on paved roads through a town. We want separate named trails added individually.

The one trail that was approved should have also been rejected, it is definitely a route not a trail
http://www.trailforks.com/trails/thann-grand-ballon/

Check out this other riding area in france, you can see all the separate trails added
http://www.trailforks.com/region/draguignan--figanieres/
And here is an example of a route added using those trails:

I posted a couple of trails a week ago. They disappeared from the confirm list after a few days but did not show up in the trails list, but I am not certain if they were rejected. I did not receive a message. They did have GPS tracks and while one was long it was an individual trail out and back. The other was a loop and it joined an existing trail for a short distance. How would I know if they were rejected as trails? Should I repost the tracks?

you can see all the content you've added (that was accepted) from your profile, click the content type counters under your avatar area.
here are the trails
http://www.trailforks.com/trails/all/?user=tonyth

Also on your profile along the top are tabs, under the "more" drop down is "pending content" also included on that page is a list of rejected content.
http://www.trailforks.com/profile/tonyth/pending/

Your 1 pending trail, "Cell tower road", it really should be 2 separate trails. 1 for the actual cell tower access road, and should be marked as an access trail. The descent from the tower should be a separate trail.
I went ahead and created the 2 trails myself as an example, I drew them in.

Ok, you are free to reject the previously approved trail I uploaded.

But I must say without rideable routes and loop, this portal and especially the App is useless for me.

I will go back to mtnp then...

Thanks!

You can also add routes, they are a separate content type from trails. mtbp is the same, they have trails & routes distinction.
http://www.trailforks.com/routes/

But to make a proper mountain biking map it takes time, mapping out and adding all the individual trails. The areas on Trailforks that are well mapped out didn't happen overnight, adding all the separate trails, connectors, access paths.

It is better to add the trails before creating routes in an area, but its not required.
When all the trails are added you can also plan a ride and have it sync to the app

here is an example ride i planned last weekend

It would be good if there was more emphasis put on rejecting entries that are routes rather than trails. For example, here is one http://www.trailforks.com/confirm/view/trail/27846/ that is clearly a route, and was getting correctly rejected, yet just got an approval vote (and I have to admit I've approved such things in errror before myself).

Is there a recommended way of splitting a route into trail segments?

not entirely sure what you mean. But its best to give unique names and unique colours. Also currently cannot edit a segment, so will have to delete and re-create if wanted to make a change.

Its also best to not mix delete and add segment actions in the same route edit. Do 1 then save, then edit again.

There are users adding skinny gravel and mud roads (unpaved roads) as trails in the app.
Should it be accepted as "trails"or rejected???

They should be added as the purple "access trails" for now.
