I'm not a big rope soloist, I own a couple of the Wren devices but they mostly gather dust. I read constant variations on the 'is my mini/micro/pro trax the best for TR soloing?', the Gri Gri modding threads, the endless hi-fiving between Silent Partner owners....

It seems like it'd make sense to have a category about this topic mixed in with the sport, trad, big wall, ice, etc. if nothing else maybe it would cut down on the constant reposting and allow for some consolidation of information.

This could also apply to any of the repetitive threads about a PAS, or the EDK, or what quickdraw or which carabiner, ad infinitum.

We have a search function, but people want to ask the same questions.

While increased membership on MP is potentially a good thing for the database, it has also led to an increase in trolling and off-topic blabbering. There are plenty of ways to improve the current problem(s). Some solutions may include:

  • Creating an "Articles" section in which posts are approved to go live, and the authors are responsible for keeping them updated (heavy moderation in this section).
  • A way to downvote forum topics (a la reddit)
  • A way to downvote individual replies to topics (enough downvotes hides the reply)
  • A two-step process for posting in the forums (e.g. a step that asks "does this contribute?" or "does this really need to go here?" or "we have a Community forum for off-topic banter; consider posting there" or "here is our search tool; have you searched for similar topics yet?")
  • A way for admins to merge a newly-posted topic with an existing one
  • A killfile (i.e. a way to put individual MP members on an "ignore" list, so that we don't have to wade through their crap every time we read a topic)
  • Forum subcategories that are specific to commonly-reposted topics (e.g. rope soloing)

None of these involves restricting freedom of speech or expression, but would still clean things up a bit. MP forums are beginning to parallel RockClimbing.com's.

Unfortunately, all of these things are a lot of work and the people working on this site (for who I am extremely grateful) are likely too busy to even read this post.

If only MP were opensource...I'd be willing to contribute to such a project.

Maybe some day...

Marsella says: Such a section could have a tree-style info hierarchy and NOT BE OPEN TO REPLIES. It could be a DEPOT FOR INFORMATION (rather than a discussion)! It could contain "articles" written by MP'ers about tech tips for stuff such as rope soloing, aiding, shoe-stuff, etc etc. MP could perhaps enlist some of the more experienced climbers in the community to moderate (by which I mean, reading the posts and determining the basic safety / verifying the concept of the article / general readability)...

+1. sounds like itd also be fun to put together. such a database would be rad.

Only hot chicks can kill lycans, and only chicks that use a pas are hot, so there proven. Chicks with PP are just not black leather hot lycan killers....

It's like you're running in slo-mo, slack jawed and glassy eyed, into that bright future of small buses and adult bibs.

Gonna change the name of this thread to Naked Admins Frolic With Models, maybe that'll get a response.
