RE: seeding popular topics from the taco
Reason 1) I think it's important because of the historical nature of some of the content back at ST. Some of those posters are no longer here to repost stuff at our new home and their stuff is important to the conversation. By having that static reference easily linked you can essentially go binge watch the previous seasons before the new season airs incase you want to know what happened.
Reason 2) Yes, links push views to ST and effect search listings, but that is functionally a dead site. They pose no real threat for viewership to RPU. People that want to contribute may go visit the ST history but they will post here. If ST gets some money from clicks, well then that's not terrible right? They did give us a free home all those years. Yes they cut us off in a pretty fucked up way. I'm not happy with that, but the way it happened was more in the nature of hapless idiots than nefarious business masterminds. The story that this was all part of CMacs master plan to deceive us climbers is a little far fetched.
It's not like there is any new content there. I'm not advocating copying ST content here, just links that make the experience here more coherent.
Reason 3) We need content and posters. Especially climbing content. By making the conversation as continuous as possible, it will hopefully encourage people to keep whatever momentum they had at ST moving here. That's easier if it's clear this is the new home for continuing those ST conversations. No one wants to repeat themselves (think about having to rewrite an essay when your computer crashes when it's almost done).
Initially I had a knee-jerk reaction to posting the links, only because it seems to detract from the here-and-nowness of Redpoint.
However, after reading your arguments in favor, Smokey, I have to admit you make a lot of sense. Not only that, but we have a deficit of climbing content on this forum, and much of what we all loved about ST was great climbing content. I can't see where bringing the historical content of a museum into our alive and thriving forum is a bad thing.
I agree the method of ending the ST forum was somewhat brutal, but like you pointed out, Chris and RJ kept the ship afloat for many, many years--FOR FREE--and I have no problem with a little pay-back going their way. Just my 2 cents.
RE: Dealing with Pain & Aging
WHAT IS NEEDED FOR MAKING TURMERIC GOLDEN PASTE:
1/2 cup turmeric powder (125 mls) – Use organic powder.
1 cup water (250 mls) or a bit more to get desired paste consistency
1 teaspoons ground black pepper (7.5 mls) (or even 1/2 tsp. if pepper is too irritating)
1/4 cup (70 ml) cold pressed Olive or un-refined Coconut oil – enhances the bio-availability of curcumin another seven to eight-fold
Thanks for that, zBrown! I've been looking for a more palatable way of getting turmeric into my daily regime; this does it.
