Having seen countless threads about new anchor ideas, daisy chain methods, ways of racking gear, etc... I am wondering if anyone in the MP community has found something someone proposed and actually liked it and used it. More interestingly, I'm curious if there has been an idea on here that actually gained popularity outside of MP.com.

Yes. RGold is generally credited with pioneering an excellent system for building anchors with the climbing rope. I guess he technically first posted it on supertopo but I learned about it here.

I want to know if any of the people reinventing the wheel have ever actually climbed.
