      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

IMHO the problem isn’t the spray game, but ignorance as to where to play it. Any CC regular should be aware that the Info forums are meant to be primarily informative and spray free. An occasional wise-crack or unrelated tale is all part of the ride around here, but I guarantee that some of the recent jabs in the Newbies forum have scared away some observers thinking about posting. Why not make a clear VISUAL difference between spray and non-spray forums, like there is now for the Freshiezone? Ultimately this won’t prevent all bad behavior or do the moderator's jobs, but it could help buffer readers looking for info but not abuse.

I do not disagree and I did not spray anyone in this forum. I merely suggested, albeit in a humorous fashion, that there be a forum where people can inform me of boulders in return for crag info.

 

to be more specific, I want them in the I90 corridor and west of the pass. quality rock, moss is not an issue.

 

I have not read this whole topic, but I dare say there are more than likely plenty of dumber suggestions.

 

and I repeat, I sprayed no one until my post was deleted.

 

better keep those non-spray posts dry and droll folks.

 

(this post contains a valid suggestion)

If you put the person that really irritates you on ignore (thanks, as JZ mentioned), you can still see they posted. You may, as an irrational being, be driven to further rage, NOT KNOWING WHAT THEY ARE SAYING, BUT IT'S MORE NASTINESS...

 

The lead box should "not show" all forum postings by that user (rather than you are ignoring this user) , as well as "responding to user" in the header. It could skip to previous poster, maybe...

I don't know if anyone already posted this, but here it is.

 

I think it would be cool if "everywhere else" didn't get paired with California. It seems like a lot of folks have TRs from abroad, and those would be great to look through in their own forum.

I want to see all moderators and administrators held to a higher standard. When people see these people occasionally flaunting the rules, they figure, "hey, why should I have to follow rules when they don't?"

And I would like to see free psychological counseling for avatars who obviously need it. But hey, I'll be happy with the "Everywhere Abroad" forum.

Dish! Did you catch a mod or two driving solo in the carpool lane?

RSS feed makes a lot of sense.

 

The current search function could really be improved. I'f i'm digging deep, I'll uses Google not the CC.com search engine.

disclaimer: i believe anyone in the mountains by themselves should be fully prepared to do whatever they need to do to get themselves back out without relying on help from others. but..

 

on several occasions i have thought about posting something like "I am going skiing int he vacinity of brokeback mountain, but may check out four fingers if conditions permit. I drive a silver ford overcompensator with pink bumpernuts. i expect to be back around 8, and will post when i get home, if you do not hear anything X hours later, please assume i am dead in a tree well.

 

i don't know. might give a false sense of security but its better than no one knowing anything?

So you expect a bunch of internet sprayers to go out and look for you if you don't get back to the keyboard on time?

 

If not, what would be the point of this?

You'd have to ask for one volunteer. That person would post that he/she was willing to make the call. You, in turn, would be responsible for posting back to the thread to say you have returned or else get the number of the volunteer. It gets complicated quickly.

right, no. it may give sar groups a head start if they know a starting point, instead of an entire range. thought it may help facilitate the first step in finding someone in trouble. i agree it is probably more trouble than its worth.

not a good idea to rely to cc.com for that sort of a forum....too serious and too much possiblity of being trolled...if you're going to solo, then tell someone you know and can depend on.

 

and cbs...I think it is you we should hold to a different standard the_finger.gif
