Although itís true that some individuals were Ďpouncersí, from what I observed that cohort mainly pounced on each other, and to an extent provided some of our readership on the sidelines with entertainment; so I tend to disagree that Chockstone wasnít ever that welcoming, inclusive, or indeed generally helpful; as there was/are an overwhelming number of posters (and posts), that tried hard to make it so.
I reckon they are still there but arenít seen easily as theyíre the silent majority these days.

I agree with the thread premise that itíd be good to be able to hang out on Chocky and discuss climbing related stuff (akin to campfire discussions of old), again, Ö perhaps made possible with suitable benevolent benefactor time and $ input.
Maybe a go-fund-me thingy would work to that end?

I think these are related to an extentÖ
One thing is for sure and that is that people do have opinions, so if Chocky becomes user friendly with high convenience factor software behind it, then those opinions are crying out for a space to be heard in.
