Hey @Steve777 thanks for the feedback.
Noted on your standpoint. Have you subscribed to 'Watch Thread' (top right of page)? This means you get notified on each post so you're across both.
In the height of winter we can get views exceeding 50-60k on each system alone, and 100's of posts of thread contributions, that's a lot of moderating and a lot to take in as viewer.
The idea behind 'predictions' & 'obs' is to filter down for viewer digestion, considering the traffic we typically see this time of year. Noting some just wanna know what the latest model prognosis, whilst others just want to contribute/view conditions etc. Some want both, hence why it's best to just sub to your preferences.
However, I do concede I thought we'd see a fair bit more discussion on this anomalous system, considering it's affecting a lot of Eastern Seaboard.
Without any change we'll keep it in mind for future systems when it's beyond the Alpine-scope.
Great reply and it's why ski.com is so much better than the old WZ forums. Mods are onto stuff all the time and actually care about the members and are open to their thoughts/ideas.
