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.
Just came up with the same idea.. that all segments shuld have a discussion/forum where users can share info/thoughts about the segmet.. however some popular segments could have thousands of posts so it might be hard for Strava servers to handle it...
I feel like there should be a comment/discussion section for all segments, not just the most popular ones. Many of the less popular ones would be able to benefit from comments that the original creator could use to made adjustments to the segment to make it better (adjusting the start/stop locations or using a files with better GPS data). There should not be a concern over server space considering there is already hundreds of thousands or even millions of activities being uploaded every day, each of which has a comment section of it's own. Comments on segments would be a drop in the bucket on the big picture.
Hello. We wanted to let you know that your idea submission from August, 2022 regarding segment forums for popular segments has received little support from the Community and will not be added to our Product Roadmap in the foreseeable future. The idea submission will be archived.
Please note that your feedback is valuable to Strava. As stated in our Community Idea Guidelines, we receive many idea submissions each week, and realistically, there may be various reasons that prevent us from including an idea on our Product Roadmap.
We want to thank you for taking the time to submit your idea and we look forward to your continued contributions to the Strava Community.
