I think it would be interesting if popular segments (segments that several people have starred, and that have a lot of attempts) had forums of their own, where athletes who’ve attempted the segment can post comments about it.
Hi @Aitor can you provide more information and details on how you envision this 'segment forum' to take shape? Do you mean enabling discussions regarding the segments within the app, in this Community Hub, or something else? We're interested in knowing why this would be useful to you and others. Feel free to edit your idea so it reflects the details you have in mind. Thank you for your contribution.
I meant in the app. It could be used for so many things. Take a popular climb in London, Swain’s Lane (my favourite!) - users could comment on how they found it today, if there are any road works, tips for climbing it, which cafe is best etc! They might find something new about somewhere they visit often. And if people could search segments for ones with forum entries, they can research before a visit.
Thanks for the response and clarification. So you mean essentially enabling a discussion space for popular segments. Your idea was reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting!
I think it would be great to add Kudos and Comments for popular Segments in Strava.
This is important because:
As an example, if there were comments for 400m/800m/1mile/5K/10K/half/full marathon segments for racing, the comments section would be an ongoing conversation between local legends, top ten, QOMs, KOMs, and anyone can ask for feedback on how to improve their times and move up the leaderboard.
Was thinking it'd be a fun way to interact with other locals if we had a way to comment on specific segments. I know, for me, there's 5-10 primary segments where I gauge my progress and routinely view the leaderboard. Would be fun to interact (virtually) with other folks who are active on that segment!
@Soren Did anything ever come of this? My idea, above, got merged with this thread from last year. I agree with OP and feel this would be a super cool idea to be able to comment within a selected segment.
