[Loadstone] creating check points and exploring

Hello Sean,

I wonder if you might activate the "Type" category in your data base and set
it to default to "Undefined". This would enable the entry to make sense in
relation to all existing entries. You could then add it to the points entry
dialog for current users to update the old one as they encounter the site I
their travels or make the entry afresh in relation to new checkpoints.

What do you think?
All the best,

Unfortunately at the moment there's no type information for points. We want
to implement this at some point. This may be kind of tricky for the data we
already have since type information isn't always available. The best way to
create checkpoints at the moment is if you know the names of the points you
want to go to. The only other way is just to explore the data and see if
anything seems interesting.
