Just a heads up I am going to get on my soapbox. A pet peeve I have here on Warmshowers is feedback. Specifically when it is not provided by either guests or hosts. But this post is directed at those who host. I see lots of comments on here about hosting people who do not have much in their profiles or in the way of feedback. Some are rightfully hesitant to host folks with that many unknowns. I myself have never turned anyone down even if they have no feedback, and have never regretted hosting anyone. I figure all of us started out new here at some point in time. But this summer I have had several guests who have told me they have stayed in Warmshower homes further up the road, but when I look at their profiles there is no feedback provided. It is not that I doubt that my guest are telling the truth, but do find it odd that no prior hosts had taken a few minutes to type a line or two. I like to stay in touch with my guests once they pedal on and watch their progress. Often I will send them a "well done or congrats " when they complete their ride. When I look at their profiles often I am the only one who has provided them feedback along the way, even when I can tell that they have been active on the website. So if you are a host, I would like some reasons why posting feedback, either good , neutral , or bad , isn't automatic once a guest pedals away from your door. That is how this website functions and it does not take much to do it. thanks off my soap box now. back to my desk job. Kevin aka noodengr
