      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!

"Past 24 hours" Menu Item

Recommended Posts

Now omits spray, for a clean climbing/skiing topic experience. If you're into having spray in your life you can still access it under the "Past X days" items under "Quick Links".

 

Or you can just bookmark the following (you'll need to be logged into the board to use the bookmark, just like you normally do to use search functions):

No offense, but I hate it. What's the point? Are we trying to keep people from spraying? Or are we afraid we're "scaring people away?" and want to hide spray from them?

 

No, sir, I don't like it.

There are many things that make this site special. Spray is one of them. Don't hide it.

Hey, I know!

 

Let's tell everyone to "keep spray in spray" -- and then hide spray!

rob, I can't believe how much this is bothering you. The point is not in hiding spray but in making climbing/skiing easier to find. Spray is all in one place, in Spray. Climbing/skiing has ~30 categories. When I type 'casc' into the URL bar the first item is the full search. I press down once and bingo, it's spray city.

 

It could have been implemented some other way but really is there any difference? Just reprogram you muscle memory and it's still the same.

I kinda miss it.

 

What about 2 "past 24 hours" buttons? Sans Spray/avec spray.

 

Or to minimize clutter, an option to hide/show in our profiles would work too.

Stop it with the drama. I gave you a couple options above for getting exactly what you had before. In fact, most options for viewing Active Posts are still including spray topics.

 

You know how to get to spray. This is a climbing board!

I don't think you realize how complicated that would really be. Personally, I like it. G00D J0RBage D00Ds :tup: :tup:

I'm glad it's staying, even if I have to press an extra button for it. If the site was only for climbing posts, I'm afraid I wouldn't have very much to say. :cry:

 

I can see why this is important to Rob. Spray serves a purpose; it's a way for folks that share a common interest to stay connected while they are not out participating in that common interest. I'd go so far as to say that it creates community. Albeit a disturbingly dysfunctional one. :eek:

 

 

Porter, you guys do an incredible job keeping this place together. I know we're in good hands, whatever the changes.

Why mention skiing? I thought this was cascadeCLIMERS.com! I agree with Rob. What is the point of hiding spray? Spray is about having a good time and some folks on here are down right witty and funny. There is no problem with that IMO. Folks seem to keep spray out of the other forums and when they dont the moderators do there best to clean it up.....

Do whatever you want, Porter. It wont' slow anybody down to use "past 48 hours" under "quick links" and if you think it makes the site more attractive to "serious" browsers or whatever not to have the spray threads mixed in with "past 24 hours" that's fine. For anyone who has or may become a regular visitor, I think it is the content that matters more than the navigation structure.

hey i thought you were supposta be shot in the woods, or straining on a island listening to shite music?

 

 

 

i kinda like the new option, cuz i don't think spray was ever intended to take over the website, right?

 

plus, it's scaring away advertising dollars.

Actually if you study much of the history of NW climbing you'd find that a very high percentage of climbers skied in the backcountry. In the modern age some people solely focus on crag climbing, but that does not represent all climbers.

drama? Shit, just talking my mind. It seems silly to me, is all. I don't remember crying about it. But whatever, everyone else seems happy so what do I know? :tup:

 

I know it's a climbing site. Spray and climbing go hand in hand is all I'm saying.

Rob, you were too crying and we both know it. I know you're a SprayDreamBeliever AND and homecoming queen. Thats why, to ease your transition, I made a 24 hours with spray on the right. Just for you though, no one else can use it. its because i love and respect you brother.

 

Oh, and it might go away at any moment if we need that box for something else ;).

 

i do prefer the new sprayless 24 hour menu item. it makes the site seem so "climber-like"!
