Capt., if that is directed at me (and it's ok if it is), you're wrong. I am needy.

And wanty. I am both!

One thought - bring back the Off Route forum section. Would be a good way to focus all those types of topics and purify the rest of the board.

Couple of things:

IPad seems to keep the “hover window” obscuring the main page, so I have to reload the page to make it disappear.

I’d like to see a calendar feature for users, so you can put a peak (or peaks) on your schedule for a particular date. It might be a good way to find climbing / hiking partners, or stalk someone.

We have the ⛷option, and the ❄️, I’d like to add the 👣 option.

Whenever Bill has to lock a thread, he should give points to the top 3 people most responsible for the lock. 5 for 1st, 3 for 2nd, 1 for 3rd. Then keep a leaderboard on the home page

From another thread: Make the peak condition color key color-blind friendly.
"Mountains are not stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve, they are the cathedrals where I practice my religion. From their lofty summits I view my past, dream of the future and, with an unusual acuity, am allowed to experience the present moment. On each journey I am reborn." - Anatoli Boukreev

I no longer have a whiteboard. If we're lucky, whoever has it now will be able to read my crappy handwriting.
