Moving it to OR certainly didn't suck your participation out of it.
Lots of things that are relevant to this site are not specifically climbing. Like canyon pages, many of the backpacking route pages, etc. But this was a relevant topic, not some BS political thread or photos of scantly dressed women.
Yes I still participated in it, but the interesting people I and others were participating with dropped out because they couldn't find it or see it on the front page.
Haven't you guys noticed that a critical mass of good participants is lacking in off route? See whitetail's post above as an example. If you want this site to be robust, you need to make threads like that (that are about the outdoors) remain more visible. Focus on making the site good, not utilizing mod capabilities.
