Topic Author's Original Post - Mar 17, 2015 - 03:47pm PT
My hope is that The Index will collect and organize the highest quality climbing related information, narrative and entertainment on the SuperTopo Climber’s Forum.

As such, the goal is not to catalog every single thread or tr, but rather to mine the best 1-3% [or so] worth of climbing related threads and posts that this forum has to offer. To add your favourite hidden and not so hidden climbing related SuperTopo gems to these index threads, just post the thread, tr, or single post that made a significant impression on you, to any of the four threads and i'll keep [in time :)] compiling and making them clickable on the first post of the applicable threads.

There are only two rules and two instructions:

Rules: 1. no self-authored nominations
..... 2. nominations need to be somewhat climbing related.

Instructions: 1. be specific regarding which threads or posts you deem worthy [ie. i need something more specific than "all of jimmy joe willicker's threads”]
..... 2. ask yourself whether it's just a personal fave or whether it rises to the level of quality that these lists generally rise to, thus far.

Off White: complete agreement! i've been planning on getting to that one, but because i'd like to create and include it in a section for tarbuster at some point, i haven't got around to it yet... i also haven't got around to sorting through grossman's threads and so only a handful of them are currently organized into the threads section. because i don't get paid for this and just do it as the ocd kicks in it might be days, weeks, or months, before i pop back up and keep pluggin' away :)

so to you and everyone else, don't worry if i don't get to your suggestions right away... the toque will get too tight eventually, and i'll drop back in to do a little housekeeping as the spirit moves...

until then, thanks to those who have made kind comments and keep the suggestions coming...

No worries, you're doing great work. I hoped that running down the links for all those threads might help you a little bit, but I know you've got your own formatting thing going on. Thanks a bunch, your indexes are all bookmarked on my computer.

added Off White's nomination of the Mussy Nebula series to both a So Cal Climbing Culture category under Areas above, as well as to a new Tarbuster's Campfire Conversation Curation category in the serial thread section...

also added this strangely interesting valley nicknames thread to the so cal culture category:
Valley Nick-Names [marty(r): Jul. 1, 2004



nice suggestions everyone else... keep 'em coming and i'll continue to add 'em, as the spirit moves...
