I really don't like the way that the forums separate out between the aforementioned.

It doesn't seem appropriate to ask about a sore toe or finger next to a dude who fell and swallowed his femur.

Injuries are part of training or at least they are when done wrong. That hardly puts them in company with Ammon and his foot or Christian on the Diamond.

I would suggest a "Climbing Accidents" forum or "Accident and Injury Analysis" where it's about people who got hurt. This should be different than the Memorial we already have.

I think injuries should be called "tweaks, strains and pops" and should either be a subgroup of "Training" or right under training on the menu.

Cause seriously guys, I have a sore toe and I don't know where to tell you about it.

Just like using the correct form of you're, commas, apostrophes, and periods, the layout makes the website content clearer and easier to access.

I realize that you're using like 90% of your brain power just to spell that last name. It must truly be a burden for you.

I would like a place set aside to discuss training related injuries as well. Alex Bury
