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

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.

Another +1 for couchmaster.

Simple button on each thread where you can give it a star or thumbs up or whatever.

Then have a simple drop down above the forum list where we can choose to organize all threads by vote count for a given time frame: most highly voted today, this week, this month, this year, all time.

Easy way for us who visit only once in a while to get at climbing content and skip past the other stuff.

A weather tab with links to all the climbing areas that monitor weather and or the nearest location to that climbing area.

Just cuz i love the weather.

"Be afraid of what you wish for"

Why? It's the internet, silly--nobody dies, their inane comments live forever, but are buried all the same. A retrieval system is not to be feared. Or thought useless or irrelevant or a waste of time as a point of speculation. I'm just saying, we are people of ST, not machines of ST.

Am I right? :)

Photoshop whackos of ST (including esp. Ouch).

How about an "Upcoming Events" tab, for any and all events involving climbers....from stuff like Facelift and Sushifests, to Donini's symposium on "How to face climb with Blue Camalots".

Having all in one click = missing less of these events due to being lost in the mire.

Already my favorite thread of the day. Hah, we got some funny folks around here, and some thinkers too.
Heck even Fatty managed a grin out of me:-)

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)

Yes, yes, yes and more yes to what the couch wrote.

There are plenty of appreciation threads for individuals and their various inclinations and vocations.

One of those thumbs up or thumbs down buttons would be fabulous.

"We already do this with comments."

I fail to understand what you mean by "comments." You mean like this rebuttal? (Call it what you will, but not a whatchamacallit.)

The nit-pickers of ST?

Yeah a way so that it is possible to log on and in fifteen minutes have seen everything that is the least bit interesting. Then as it is updated each day you can spend less than two minutes and log the hell off.

And a rating system like those that allow you decide whether to do the climb with yellow painted holds or the blue ones. Cool!

You guys have to work harder at being up to date as to how you actually function. Hawkins' case for us being totally uncontrollable predicting machines means our failure to predict successfully is the only event that fully engages us. We love surprise. We love mystery(Krauss/Feynman)

What is it you love the most when you find buried in blather a well phrased exposition of an event or idea that was totally unpredictable.

The best climbs are those that have surprises one after the other.

Oh, like the Five Open Books, complete with bookmarks to make sure we don't confuse Surprise with Bridwell's Surprise, the Jungle with Werner's Ant Tree, the Commitment with Bridwell's Surprise, the Werner's Ant Tree with the Green Strip, ad nauseum. I kinda like being confused. Post-its. File cards. Notes on the palm. Everyone's favorite, the paper clip. There is a viable way to do this. Probably not happening in my life time.

Climmer just contacted me (I got vibed): Helmets and GPS! It's all in the helmet.

Definitively "the Small Businesses of Supertopo"

I second "the Builders of ST"
There is a lot of talent in this area
