All you need to do is neutralise the mods.

Another reason why newbies/others might not be contributing a whole lot is that is can be a bit intimidating at times to add your 2c. Take the discussion about people's 2006 tick list, for example. I don't climb in the 20s, and so don't really have a lot to add.

No one probably wants to know if your 2006 tick list includes Lamplighter, Watchtower Crack, Brolga and Eurydice.

Thats a load of polly waffle, the grade you climb has nothing to do with the relevance of what you have to say. Climbing is about challenging yourself, setting out your ticklist isn't going to get you laughed at, in fact it may just give you that little bit of encouragement you need to go out and achieve your goals...

yep! totally!

yeah, who wants to troll through old stuff. It's like yesterday's news and very time consuming. I don't do it.

Agreed and with everything you said. Can be intimidating for newbies and a lurking thread that watches and comments often abusively on what others say is a real bummer on a forum and the perfect way to turn off newbies or those who may be a bit shy. Negativity is positively not positive.

Just don't expect any of us long termers to bother replying to newly created topics about the same old
stuff!

I'm not suggesting that it would get me laughed at. Just that I don't really feel comfortable adding to the discussion in some circumstances.

Thanks. I've noticed quite a few times where you've been completely shut down for what is an honest inquiry or comment, and I do think that's a shame. I can't think of an example right now (nor do I have time to troll through old threads to find one!)

Can you still get those? I haven't had one for nearly 20 years (yet another pitfall to living in the UK for so long.)

You had me imagining Mike as King Richard the lionheart and Neil as the Sherriff of Nottingham. That or the Monty Python thing of the king going about the countryside with a bloke behind him hitting two coconut halves together making the sound of a horse clippety clopping.

Rubbish! The thing with climbing is that there is a challenge for everyone at all levels. I'm just as keen to hear of someone launching themselves into the middle grades (teens) as pushing themselves in the high twenties. Actually even more so, 'cos I can relate to it somewhat.
Lamplighter is great, did it for a second time earlier this year.
SO post those tick lists!
