Well done to him for his innovation, and all the rest of the team as well. I expect drinks will be consumed later?

In reply to UKC News: Well done, and thanks. Easy to forget how much work goes on behind the scenes as we discuss the grade of TPS for the eleventy thousandth time, but without it we'd just have to argue with ourselves.

Keep up the good work!

Excited for the video. Especially if its integrated into the logbooks like the photos are for individual climbs.

Congratulations Nick.

The article reminded me how long I have been posting on this site ... an worryingly long time that seems to have passed very quickly.
In reply to UKC News:

The look, feel and usability of the site is something special - cheers Nick for all the graft.

In reply to UKC News: Well done Nick for 10 yrs of dedication and probably grey hair. I bet you nearly gave it all up when the entire site crashed a while back?

Grey hair, it was sort of orange or something last time I saw it.

I'd agree - this is one of the most usable and useful forum designs on the web, and much better to look at than most. Excellent job Nick!

Nice one Nick. You've done an awfully great service to climbing, that transcends the normal "Oh you've done a great route well done, oh you've wrote a topo, thanks here's a fiver for it". You've paved the way for a new medium that works and that all parts of the community use.
In reply to UKC News: Well done. I love the forum and the logbook.
