When I click on the listings tab, the most recent listings for most of the categories I'm looking at (road frames, full suspension frames, road wheels, etc) seems to be 2012-2103? Am I looking in the wrong place?

Your not looking at the wrong place. It’s just that listing hasn’t been updated in so long.

The listing is a project I'm working on. The issue is work has been getting in the way of my free time. If anyone has the weight of something they would they would like to share of a component or frame, scale shot to verify please, I will attempt to update the listings as my time allows. The listings is what brought me to this site many a years ago.

From the developer point of view, I am confused why listings have not been resurrected yet. The project looks like several months of work for a single person and will yield obvious benefits for both community and owners.

I think the listings should be a Wiki style system where people can upload weights themselves. Obviously you'd need a minimum post count and picture verification of weights, but it would be a lot easier for mods to quickly check through already-uploaded weights than to upload them all themselves.

I agree. Having an open environment where users can add (and correct) data would be most useful. Moderation will only slow things down and cause extra work. Let's let everyone play in the sandbox. many hands make light work :)

I know there is always a chance for errors and malicious users. But I doubt that would be a big problem, and "good users" could find and revert/correct any malicious changes quickly enough. A Wiki style interface would make this very easy to self moderate. Perhaps simply a post count check. 50 posts, perhaps?
