Nope, couldn't find it. But I'm computer moron. And Facebook is evil.

Reilly & Roadie

& all who'll not plant a steamy wet kiss on a Zuckerbeger

don't drop the ball send Tarbuster an Email

I'm seemingly in ok company in not being dragged into that monster

but most likely I'll just drop back into obscurity

I am in fact a lover of Diabase.
The type of rock I hail from
& where I spent an inordinate amount of time as a youth

I am back to it now, after having made a bed of white Quartzite for 25 years
So here, where the hillsides' shoulders, all that is left of the mountains,
welcome me with crisp incut holds on variously orange to grey
tortoise-shell colored rock
I can be found at the Gnome name
All One Word
No Spaces or CapitalLetters

I sure have had a good time trying to absorb what you all have been putting out
I feel like I was drinking right alongside you and reading the very best things that there has been to read in these end-times

Stay away from cattle prods and powderd liquor
cheap is only a state of poverty

Thanks for your efforts.

It is kind of hard to follow.

Maybe even harder to lead.

I don't use Facebook. Thanks for the effort anyway. I am sure a lot of folks will make use of that.

IS RC.n00b still around ill bet its an empty space that could be used..

ahh yes i see the last post in the bigwall section is from last

probably be months before they even have an admin to mess with us

I try hard to keep my name off the internet. Nothing good comes of it unless carefully tailored for business purposes.

Jaybro, no....its up and running and doing better than I would have thought.

151 members and people requesting to join by the hour. 1,300 posts, comments and reactions as of this morning. Come jump on board. Its not perfect....but neither was Supertopo. (No email function, no liking or relating to comments in real time, clunky photo and vieo uploading.) We'll see!

Roadie, you need to get over there man! There are some great folks already on there and your writing and contributions are some of the best on the internet. Come give it a chance. I will personally miss your stories and writing when ST folds up next week. Facebook, with all its warts and issues, could still be a great venue for you to share your creative side. Think about it at least.

Why, oh why, would anybody want to have _any_thing_ to do with Facebook?

Are you folks ignorant, as in unaware, of just how bad this company is?

I am a backend IT Geek so maybe stuff I perceive as common knowledge is not?

I just sent my request to join.

At one point BITD when was kicking people out, and I thought people ought be allowed to "be themself" online, I created a discussion forum board via

The one I made is defunct now, but it is NOT HARD to set up and run a board with this platform. It gives quite a bit for free - certainly enough to keep the SuperMen and TacoBelles (and to stay current let's include all the gender ingredients that made up the TacoSalad and just go with that).

A part of me, being the entrepreneur is saying "Make a new forum!!!" The more reasonable part of me is reminding me that I need to remain focused on my jewelry craft work and the business end of that.

However.... I couldn't stop myself. I claimed a board I've called ClimbersTacoSalad.

IF the WideFetish doesn't want to become a place for everybody and then some of their alts - which I can understand, and if people want to avoid the streets of Facebook - which I definitely understand, and IF people WANT a discussion forum board - I will set it up and continue, and ask for a few volunteers to help Admin/Moderate.

If not, then I won't.

Man, I hope someone else is looking into a more sustainable, accessible alternative to ST than Facebook.

Hey Roadie, the ST email function is messed up. The trick to finding the group is to search in the seach tab UNDER the "groups" tab on Facebook. Searching for it under the general use search-bar wont find it. my email is if you have any other questions. I hate the big monster of Facebook just as much as the next guy but its a good venue for sharing climbing and creative stoke and there's already tons of ST folks over there.

Looking forward to seeing y'all over there.

A fundamental question that arises before any of this is resolved is the following:

After June 1st how are current members of ST notified of new forums being created?
looking sketchy there...

Never have and never will do FB. Not sure why anyone would. Yet, every new and disturbing revelation about it doesn't seem to faze the addicted.

Sorry ST is going away as it had some unique content (hidden amongst the standard garbage).
