    These 2 posts to the picture gallery he made a couple weeks ago survived (all his posts to the forums were deleted). These should also be deleted as inappropriate.

    Although I have to admit I laughed when I read them.

    I like it.
    I'm not really a hiker, I just play one on White Blaze.

    Being silly has never been a disqualifier here, so if I am, well, when you buy the ticket, you get the whole ride.

    Misleading? In the days before the Politics Forums - and that's what I meant, so I'm sorry for not being clear on that - I doubt that they deleted more than a few, if any postings here. Someone in charge? I think ATTroll and Sgt Rock acted more like guides than bosses, and they did it well.

    Default The next step...

    Eliminate religious references -- I think it would be more respectful to everyone if religious posts, quotes, signatures were left out of the hiking forum. I respect everyone right to keep their beliefs to themselves. Just my opinion.

    For the most part, there didn't need to be mods because everyone was civil (except Easy's drukin' rants, but those were removed before many even saw them.....sounds like a mod...), now most threads become un-civil after a handful of posts. That almost never happened back in "the old days".

    I see three eras in WB history...

    "Early Days" -- when folks were civil (even in water crossing threads) and most of the talk was about backpacking/hiking and public comments rarely were directed at an individual. There were disagreements and differing opinions, but rarely, if ever, "attacks".

    "Dark Days" -- complete insanity and chaos with little hiking talk and even the most benign topic resulted in personal insults to posters and often added nothing to a thread.

    "Now" -- nothing like the "Early Days", more like "Dark Days"-lite. But still an improvement. Still way too many personal attacks and not enough discussion.


    Not sure of the exact dates for each of those "eras", but "now" seems to have started within the past year. And "Early Days" probably ended in late 2005? 2006?

    The biggest issue was that the "Dark Days" era was permitted to run for such a long period of time. In fact, some of it still creeps in from time to time. So, maybe it isn't truly over yet...

    Nah. It's more like :

    "Early Days" - when people could say what was on their minds.

    "Whiney Days" - when people complained to admins CONSTANTLY because something was said that they disagreed with.

    "Post-Whiney Days" - when people left in droves because the whiney people won.....and still whine.

    TLBJ --

    You've pretty much encapsulated it, and you were here in the early periods, too. And yes, now I recall a few of Easy's posts being deleted largely because of some issues that involved the transfer of the site from him, and as a result really didn't belong here. I don't think it was censorship as much as embarassment that led to them being deleted.

    I think this has been mentioned before by others in one form or another....

    Part of why seems a bit borning now (and maybe why the "Dark Days" started) is there isn't a whole lot to talk about WRT hiking/backpacking/AT/thru-hiking, etc. The whole subject mater is quite small and very little changes from year-to-year. So, "regulars" get bored and start to bring up OT posts, personal attacks, etc. I'm sure the same would happen if we were all on the trail together for 7 years. Even if we were only a "group" for 8 hours a day.

    Fun fact: I was his original transcriber, during his abbreviated 2002 hike. He sent me a t-shirt from Neels Gap and we chatted on the phone a few times.
    Are you sure that fact was fun?

    Well, I only joined a month ago. I was directed to the site by someone I met at Roan High Knob Shelter. I have been nothing but happy to get on everyday to read, learn and be entertained. I think this site is wonderful!

    Welcome! I'm sure you'll find both information and entertainment here, in varying degrees.

    So much for all of those people who keep insisting that no one on the trail even knows about whiteblaze . . .
