Ok, here's what I've come up to help both trip report authors and those with checklists.
Has the '3k gained' icon always been like that?
My eye wants the angle of the 3 dots (dice) to go from bottom left to upper right.

Everytime I see one of his videos, I want to know what his quads look like. #thickthighssavelives
"The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need – if only we had the eyes to see." -Ed Abbey

"I get scared sometimes—lots of times—but it's not bad. You know? I feel close to myself. When I'm out there at night, I feel close to my own body, I can feel my blood moving, my skin and my fingernails, everything, it's like I'm full of electricity and I'm glowing in the dark—I'm on fire almost—I'm burning away into nothing—but it doesn't matter because I know exactly who I am." from The Things They Carried

Looks great, thanks Bill!

Cool. My eyes will be happier.
Something else I've noticed is the Memo pop-up window deal for one's peak list doesn't show up anymore. While stalking myself (& feeding my ego), the notes I have put on my summits no longer shows. What gives?
I also updated one of my peaks to show I gained 3000' but I don't get the newly arranged dots of an icon next to my list, like your example above has. What (does) it take?

Sorry to take this how to ski thread down this road.....

I temporarily removed the memo pop-up because the way it was coded caused the page to be too large/slow. I will be adding it back once I have it more dynamic, and it will include notes and all icons.

Due to space restrictions, only the snowflake and ski icons show up when viewing your checklist by range. You can see all icons if you switch to "by Elevation." I'll add something to make that clear.

Just curious what the forum thinks about adding a ski descent icon for my dogs account, when she climbed and sprints as fast as she can behind me while I ski. Obviously she is a dog, so she doesn't fit in AT boots, but she works hard and has a very different experience, often on a different ski oriented route, than when we climb and don't ski. Not trying to stir this pot, genuinely curious since she takes her check marks seriously. TYIA everyone
