About Personal Lists
Registered users of Peakbagger.com can create their own lists. The site hosts hundreds of well-known and popular lists on the
Peak Lists page, but many users will want to create a collections of peaks that speaks to their climbing interests or goals.
There are two kinds of Personal List a user can create:
Query List: Create one on this page. These lists are the results of a query against the Peakbagger.com peak database,
and include peaks based on strict criteria, such as elevation, location, prominence, and other metrics. To create one, you can use the query tool to input your
criteria, run the query, tweak the criteria until you get results you are happy with, and then save the results as a list.
Pick-and-Choose List: Create one on this page. These lists are created by selecting peaks from the Peakbagger.com database.
There are no limitations on which peaks you can choose--these lists can be a grab-bag of whatever random peaks you want to group together. To create one,
set up the name and other information on the List Edit page, set that list to be your "active" list, and then navigate to peak pages on the site. On each peak page there is a
button in the upper right corner what will allow you to add that peak to your active list. Click for More Info
The table on this page shows both kinds of lists. The "Query Edit" button for a list is only present for Query Lists, and will allow you to change the query criteria that generated that list.
The "List Edit" link allows you to change the List title, description, columns, and other properties of the list, and will work for both kinds of lists.
Wish List: Your "Wish List" is a special kind of Pick-and-Choose List.
When selecting peaks to add to it, you can only add peaks you have not yet climbed. And once you climb a peak on your Wish List, it is automatically removed from your Wish List.
The Wish List also lets others know your upcoming plans, and is used for map shading. It is a good idea to give your Wish List a name that reflects it special status, for example, "John Smith's Wish List".
To make a Pick-and-Choose list your Wish List, click the "List Edit" link for a list, and check the Wish List checkbox on the page. This will set that list to be your Wish List.
If you have a current wish list, it will not be deleted, it will remain as a regular Pick-and-Choose list.
