First in the series is

The Photographers of SuperTopo
The Authors of SuperTopo

in a few days, once that one is filled out a bit, I am thinking of

The Authors of SuperTopo
then a few days later
The Artists of SuperTopo
The Small Businesses of SuperTopo

Any other ideas?

Love the idea of the Small Business Owners of Supertopo. Maybe "the Builders of Supertopo"... I have been seeing some great things on the "show me what your building" thread...

Yes of course, the "Beer Connoiseurs of Supertopo" -this of course coorlates with the Friday Night Drunks, and obviously room for other alcohol categories ;-)

Suggestion - Include an image for the Lists. Even a Headline Illustration(JPEG with the Title).

I was going to Pin the "Photographers Of" to one of my Pinterest boards related to climbing, and can, because some have posted images in the thread, but.... obviously not all will have such images, and also since it is a collection of links, would be nice to focus on the whole. The image is also good for Facebook links, as posts with image get better click-through.

The political pundits of Supertopo....long list. LOL (I joke make)

Chris, it's lightly disturbing to see amazing, interesting or historically incredible posts by folks like Rgold, Jan or Tom Higgins just get buried under the mundane daily minutia which we all find interesting. That Frank Sacherer thread, for

I would think that a rating system, whereby all of us wankers could star or rate a post or a thread, and that a new person could log on 2 years later: hit "show me the real amazing stuff", and see that fantasic John Bachaer or Ken Yeager story instead of stupidity and bickering over who the recent asswipe politician of the day would make this a very very special place. (ie, more special than it is)

we are working on the feature, couchmaster. great suggestion. hope to have it out in a few months

Jun 4, 2012 - 12:35pm PT
Couchmaster has the best idea. Seriously... We do need to have a way of showing off the best of the Taco stand. Too many people are not around enough to get a chance to enjoy those special jewels.

How about "The FAists" of ST? That way we can find out who to go to if questions like "Flying Circus" come up.

The Granite State.

I'm biased, but Survivals 'Show Me What You're Building' thread is a showcase of amazing talent that makes my own work seem pedestrian.

A rating system seems like a great idea too.
