SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 0.0 A Guide to SuperTopo Gold
SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 2.0 Threads: Foundational Series
SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 2.1 Threads: Individuals
SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 2.2 Threads: Areas + Routes
SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 2.3 Threads: Climbing Conversation

My hope is that this index of SuperTopo Climbing Gold 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 six 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.

In a fairly recent post you mentioned that you have been deleting threads from your index which suffer too heavily from disabled picture links due to the foto buckit third-party hosting pay wall notice.

I'm suggesting you leave those threads in the index with, perhaps a caveat explaining their deficiency, or at least keep a record of them somewhere.
Reason being, I have been viewing threads and restoring those broken links with various browser extensions.

Google has offered their own embed fix (browser extension), along with updates, but I have found those don't work in perpetuity.

I am however having great success with an alternate extension currently, and have resurrected tons of broken links so that I can save those threads to PDF. If by any chance you have been keeping track of which threads you have been removing from your index, I would be interested in seeing that list so that I can go through and archive those threads with the broken links restored.

 Of course I risk foto buckit seeing this post and doing their best to disable the functionality of all of the available extensions. (Which we can imagine they are doing anyhow). If you can acknowledge this post, and work something out quickly, I would be happy to remove this post ASAP.

(I would have sent you a PM with this request, but we know this forum isn't functioning in that regard very well, if at all).

Alexey: thanks muchly for the suggestions to this and the other thread. i'll get them posted soonish...

mister buster: appreciate the early morning thoughts. don't worry the only ones i deleted were trip reports that were basically entirely photos. so no need to worry that i'll delete entire threads. also, the handful i did delete, i hot linked and listed in the comments below the trip report compilation. that way i can occasionally double check if the original poster has resurrected the photos as they are able to edit the original trip report post.

short version: i don't delete if there is basically anything more than just missing pictures. and if i do delete i leave a hot link in the comments so o.p's can hopefully have some incentive to clean things up.

thanks for making sure i stay honest... :)
