Talk:Main Page Old
Hi Tim, I am looking to find out what my browser window is set at and therefore the best to advisers users to set, from your note - dependant on at what resolution the viewer is running his monitor. You can see this if you resize your browser - mine looks fine but how do I find out the details. I can then put up a note and ask viewers to use these settings to get the most from the wiki formatting? Long one I know but...--Alan rosier 17:31, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
- I think it's impractical to ask users to resize their monitor. Far better is to write the wiki pages in such a way that, in practice, the resolution of the monitor makes little difference to the relative positions of text and graphics. This means avoiding white space in the markup; e.g. not using lots of blank lines to position text. Do this and you shouldn't have to worry too much. --Tim Hoddy 20:08, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Let's Get Rid of this Page
Alan has stared a 'main page' I think it should replace this one. --Tim Hoddy 14:28, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
the guidebook page? fine. feel free to add any further comments as it's just bare bones right now.--Alan rosier 16:03, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
- Ok... done. But I think it needs some further development, e.g. subheadings. What should we have?

- Hmmm... I'll look to see if the title of the first page can be changed 'from Main Page' to something sensible.

Great job in keeping this wiki going, many thanks.
I wonder if we could use it to keep tabs on when bolts are placed and replaced etc? John Bullock and I are currently replacing all of the Fixe hangers on the sea-washed crags at Southgate with Petzl hangers stamped 316L (marine grade stainless, the same as the bolts). The new rings are also stamped 316L.
Perhaps we could add a few lines under the list of first ascents for the crags affected. eg "routes 1-10 hangers replaced with Petzl 316L March 2018" just so that the information is out there in ten or twenty years time when others may want to replace them again.
The existing fixe hangers are not in a dangerous condition but they are tarnished and some are showing minor pitting behind the nut and one (Golden wall) had a clear rust blister on the back. We will replace them all this year.
- Thanks for your good works! Funnily enough, this same idea was mentioned at the last BMC Area Meeting and I said that I believe we would be quite happy to do this. I think the only question is where this information should go; on the article page, its associated 'discussion' page or on a separate page altogether. --Tim Hoddy (talk) 19:07, 12 April 2018 (BST)
