Its fun searching the topo for old threads that actually are about climbing. What do you say we all bump a bunch of old favorites, and fill the front page with something besides politics and noisy arguments.

John,

It is a neat idea you have come up with but you need to clue people in to finding their threads. They key to finding a thread from the distant past (which you like) is to try to recall something very distinctive about it. If you can recall an ususual phrase or combination of words, the search engine will bring up your thread. The more distinctive the better because the search engine will bring up any thread which has those words.

As an example, if I wanted to bring up a particular thread about Yabo and then also I remembered that someone in the thread referenced his "dad's cinema" then entering those two words into the search engine will bring up the thread.

Similarly, I once got into a scrap here on this very forum with another forum member concerning merits (or down side) of unionization of the worker. I recall that this person referenced the music of Pete Seeger (during the course of his argument with me) therefore if I enter that information - namely "union" and "Pete Seeger" I will likely find the thread in question.

By contrast, if the name "Pete Seeger" was a topic which we frequently discuss here on this forum (in fact, it is not so) then that particular search strategy would fail. The more unique is the particular phrase you recall a person saying e.g. using the expression "chip hound," the better will be your chance of finding the thread you are seeking.

Is it weird to post your own? This was my favorite trip of the year. I finally went to Yosemite!

Great idea John...

Crimp,

It is not weird at all. If you started a thread and it got an interesting response, why not revisit it. Revisiting old threads is particularly good at times when things get very boring around here.

BTW, I loved your house in that pic you posted. Great brick!

Crimpie, you're supposed to BUMP your thread.

The happy things thread was pretty good too, though it didn't have much about climbing.

It's working.. I cant read fast enough. Crimpie, your first trip to the vally is well worth another look, every one was kinda blown away by your tic list, even if you had a rope gun.

Thank goodness for the ropegun! I can't wait to get out there again. I didn't post a trip report, but the last few days of November, we went to Whitesides NC and climbed the Matrix (.12c). What an amazing climb there too! I am happy to be past the busted arm, back at full strength (even more?) and a much better climbing head. Okay, bump I will. I'll try to find the happy thread too. :)

somebody ran a post about 3-4 months ago asking us to plug in our favorite threads and that grew pretty fat.

i saved it, but my hard drive has since crashed; i had no back up and i do not recall the name of the thread.

anybody remember that thread title?

I did this already a couple of times earlier today when searching for something. If it's a worthy post and you have something of value to add, then go for it!

Can I pimp my own TR? :D

EDIT:

Guess I should link it: http://www.supertopo.com/tr/JTree-New-Years-09-10-TR-lots-of-photos-AND-videos/t10617n.html

Also, I've bookmarked some important threads already (read: the ones about climbing in Missouri). :)
