      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

In my case, it's just a handful of people. Everyone else I've met through this site has been anywhere from pretty good to super-duper cool. Can't let a few naysayers keep me away from that.

Actually, you did (on the Dwayner thread). Your comments are right on, Jon. Like Jay sai: people who want this site to be more informative and serve more as a vehical for meeting climbers and unifying the climbing community should feel free to add things that will steer it in that direction. Unless you change the board so the posts are screened before they are displayed, there will always be those who are more interested in entertaining theirselves or insulting others than contributing something more helpful -- but this site has and I hope will continue to be a great resource for a lot of Northwest climbers. I'm not identifying Dwayner or anybody else as being "responsible" for this situation, but it would be unfortunate if we let the antics of a few, or even the pervasive culture of banter, cause the site to be mired in the realm of bullshit.

You mean it's not already?

Ok, you're right. The jokes, jive and flame have become more prevalent than the climbing content and in many ways they choke this site. But the potential remains obvious. I probably should have said it would be too bad if we let them cause the site to be "hopelessly mired in bullshit."
