Wow...these forums are dead. I haven't posted all summer and I still have double the amount of post as anyone else. These forums need more activity to keep users, and maybe a moderators crew.

This forum is beyond dead. At this point it's rather embarassing and should be taken down.

Not to mention there are no controls to stop spammers here.

I have been an active visitor to the MWO web site for years. But, I was not aware of this forum. I have been at T4T's forums - but, they are more focused in the winter. How do we get the word out that this forum is available? I found the new MWO site design confusing - and spent too much time trying to find the things I use on a regular basis. I did not go off looking at the new things like the forums.

The problem is the quality of the posts. People use handles instead of real names and post messages that involve just smiley's.

I'm not saying these forums were my idea, but 3 years ago I was dreaming of a MWO forum where the observers and interns could answer questions about the mountain and users could engage in conversation with them. They would talk about the mountain's weather last night, and what the forecast held. Maybe talk about climbing routes and current conditions. The main goal was to have a large interaction with the actual observers and interns. As an intern I loved answering questions, no matter how ridiculous they were.

It was and is still a great idea. It takes a little activity and posts on different topics to get people to come back.

One of my hobbies is photography. Mt Washington and hikes in the area are one of my favorite subjects. Waterskiing and sunrises probably come next. Jim Salge is a Observer on top now and he takes wonderful pictures. A lot of what I see in Jim's photos is his understanding of the weather and taking advantage of the conditions and available light. My grandson and I had the opportunity to meet Jim in person this summer on a hike to the summit (grandson was 9 years old then).
