      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!

What Do you Want to See?

Recommended Posts

How about a Technology Forum (or some other title)? There are a lot of smart people here and it would be nice to have a place to ask/discuss computer/math/technology under one roof.

 

A Tech forum would fill a gap between the Cafe and Spray (the Pirate forum can go away IMO...I get it, but it's pretty quiet there) and allow a place to talk about this stuff without it getting muddy in Spray.

 

I also realize this is a climbing site...but we seem to have violated that rule a long time ago.

 

I know there are a lot of other places on teh net, but I like coming here. Why go anywhere else? :brew:

You guys need to add something like a google calendar that everyone can post on that is looking for a partner for a particular day/weekend/etc etc. I think it would make it easier to find a partner for something as one could look at just a date instead of 20 or so posts. One could also use it for carpooling.

Good idea John! Maybe events like ropeup and slide shows or opening and closing of crags for bird nesting and whatnot could be on there as well. (or perhaps on their own calendar or something)

Would it be possible to add in a "date range" search option to the TR Index?

 

Ex: Be able to search for climbs done in the alpine lakes region between Dec 200x and Feb 200x+1

I would really like to see you incorporate a feature used on TGR: the little thread preview (first few sentences of the original post) that appears when you hover over the thread title. I always miss it when I come back to cascadeclimbers after a mag session.

Perhaps a designated "Kids" section, down below the Pirate forum. We have Kevbones "for the fathers" down in the kindness section, a special kid section in the yard sale forum, and have people asking general kid questions throughout the other forums. Now have a guy seeking climbing partners with kids in the Partner area.

 

Seems like it would be cleaner to just put it all in one "spray free" Kid Section

 

Just my thoughts.

I have tried getting a whole forum for kids already. It would need to be heavily moderated to keep idiot posts out.

 

Thoughts are that it could include

GEAR

KID TR'S

KID EXERCISES

KID TIPS

KID USED STUFF FOR SALE

KID EQUIPMENT RECOMMENDATIONS

 

etc.

What I would like to see is less "pissing" all over eachother. I grow tired of reading thread after thread to merely have it be KKK and trask and others pissing back and forth.

 

Spray should be in spray, save the rest of the site for climbing stuff.

 

Merely my thoughts.

Make side bar minimizable so one does't have to view ads/sponsors all the time which makes pictures hard to view in posts (Especially on laptops with small screens).

I see a big black box covering half the screen when I go to the homepage. I have to do an end run around it(by clicking on a trip report at the bottom of the page) to get into the forums(everything else is blocked by the black box of death).

 

 

This just started this afternoon....
