I just came back home from a 10 days trip in southern France.
due to bad weather conditions, i choose to find warmshowers instead of camping, although I had a tent with me. Also due to bad weather conditions, i didn't know exactly how much kilo I would ride the day after. So I began me warmshowers search every day at midday for the following night (same day).
With this experience, I would suggest to more criteria in the advanced filter
- Active time : if you need a bed for tonight, it's better to contact possible host having an activity a few days ago, not 7 months .....
- Phone number ; also better to contact people by phone instead of mail.
So those 2 filters would be very helpful, even for more 'long term' search.
According to your FAQ (see attached picture file), your also show people that are not available.
Why ? here again, a criteria in the advanced filters (available or not available) should be helpful
