"Weather" Current Field Variability

"Weather" Current Field Variability

Short, concise description of the idea
Have various options for the proposed "Weather" current field

Full description of the idea
There's been talk of having a Weather field in the currents, and, if so, having it automatically gathered from some sort of weather service. If this is implemented I think it would be best to provide the alternative of typing in the weather and the alternative of having a drop-down menu with things like "cloudy" and "rainy" and "blizzard" and so on, much like there is with the current "Mood" field.

An ordered list of benefits

  • More options available to the user
  • Provides something for someone who doesn't have a specific location
  • Benefits people who prefer "it's kind of overcast" to "50% cloud cover 98F 37C 20% chance of rain wind chill factor 70"
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • It could be argued that it would add clutter to the Update view.
  • Like always, it would, if implemented, have to be implemented.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Uh . . . do it?
