Sierra climber sounds like a good idea, but now i think the bigger problem is what software to use, for me anyway. And another thing, look at this:

https://www.reddit.com/r/cats/comments/borh6u/cats_playing_on_the_ceiling/

Do you know what that means? It means that someone has been moderating supertopo and that's scary. If there is no moderator all hell breaks loose and I am nave to those kinds of alt threads. How much work is this going to be?

I like the feel of this board below, what do you think? I hate that reddit and facebook, don't like the photo deal at the index.

I also do not like the posting on your own page idea, I would rather dump into a topic then a person. Topics are what its all about, can you imagine if all this junk on supertopo was in facebook? What a mess that would be.

[I am not so sure I want to do this, it might use up a lot of time.]

Sierra Climber does nothing for me. The problem for me with ST has always been itís calicentricity. I would love a forum with more of a worldview.

Don if you are going to try to keep this going you need to negotiate with Chris to get the supertopo.com domain. Maybe link to ads for his topos and books. If you start over from scratch, I don't know if you would get the same group of people, which is what is irreplaceable. It's a concentration of US climbers who developed the sport. Cali centric, yes, but lots of Coloradans and I think it mainly reflects the demographics of American climbing in the past. If it's too focused on Yosemite, it may be because for many people including me, it gave us the most memorable climbing experiences.

I also had many memorable experiences in Yosemite and it definetly was the place that prepared me for my alpine climbing.
Yosemite is still a major, major area, especially for bigwall, but itís influence has lessened in the last few decades. The climbing world has exploded, not only in the number of climbers but also in the number of venues.
When I first started climbing the Gunks, Tetons and Yosemite were the ďmust get toĒ climbing areas...sure has changed.

Light bulb moment: Donald Perry, you are that Lyme Disease dude right?

Holy sh#t... With that news you and Klimmer should for sure take over the forum. Let me know how I can help.

I have a feeling that this board is outdated and has some problems.

It would probably be better to start over with a well supported board that feels good, not like craigslist forms or reddit.

https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk form type looks okay if it is supported software. And, the advertisements would have to go only at the top and not in the middle of the threads.

A big problem is spam and how to eliminate it.

I'll ask if they will sell a link.

The Washington Post has a simple forum:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-frustrated-by-advisers-is-not-convinced-the-time-is-right-to-attack-iran/2019/05/15/bbf5835e-1fbf-4035-a744-12799213e824_story.html?utm_term=.c0cad64f2f1e

But the discussions within discussions seems to be very stupid.

i have got no call back from super T... getting ready to launch. Once I go there is no turning back, it's like getting married.

Jud observed: "you guys are no help with domain names"

I don't think there is an answer, the answer appears to be found in imperfect choices.

Buy Supertopo? Maybe later. Don't think the American ego can do that, look at gunks.com, that guy is going down with the ship all hands on board.

vBulletin regularly and automatically backs up their newsgroups, as well as it is downloadable to your computer. That means that anyone can have a copy of the whole site. VBulletin is literally the largest and most popular board program available. Yahoo!, NASA, nVidia, Skype, AMD, Capitol Records, Virgin Records, Warner Bros. Records, and SmartFTP), those are off the top of my head. If anyone is familiar with vBulletin let me know.

Who is interested in maintaining and moderating such a site? I don't think it is a good idea to do it alone.

supertopoforum.com is available if Chris wouldn't mind.

Would be best if you could arrange to host what's already here instead of starting from scratch

If the name needs a change www.supertacoforum.com

Peace

That's starting off with a lot of memory, perhaps $300.00 a month. I would need members to pay a fee or make donations. Who is willing to do that?, is anyone willing to do that?
